You need WinRAR to unrar the files.

Installation: Save the format.rar file to C:/Program Files(x86)/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2011/tools/editor/data and then unrar the contents. They should install automatically into the correct folders. If they do not unrar them to C:/Program Files(x86)/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2011/tools/editor/data/format.

(Note: Your install directory will be different if you are using Steam. It will be C:/Program Files(x86)/Steam/steamapps/common/football manager 2011/tools/editor/data)

Once you have done this, restart the editor and there should be a new option in the Editor and it should look as follows:

advancedpanel.jpg

You should have access to the section called List.

Sometimes even after following the instructions List does not appear - this is because the program you used does not have permission to write to that part of the hard drive. You should unrar the files to a location in your documents, then copy and paste the files into the appropriate directory mentioned above.

I removed the Database Changes section as I found out afterwards that you can find your changes by filtering a search to include the Number of Changes (best option is 'Is At Least' = 1).

This thread can be used to discuss this download and for help regarding using the Advanced Rules.

Some people have PM'd myself and opened several threads asking questions about Advanced Rules. SI do not provide support the Advanced Rules as they haven't activated it for us. Please post all your questions regarding Advanced Rules in this topic as it will help declutter the threads and also provide invaluable information to those studying how to use the Advanced Rules.

Some in game competitions are editable. You can find these either by extracting the contents of the comps.fmf file (Found in C:/Program Files (x86)Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2011/data) with the Resource Archiver or you can download the file below. Again you need WinRAR to unrar the files.

DOWNLOAD comps.fmf files from 11.0.0

DOWNLOAD comps.fmf files from 11.1.0

DOWNLOAD comps.fmf files from 11.2.0

DOWNLOAD comps.fmf files from 11.3.0

Other Downloads

Recently I worked on implementing the 6+5 rule that was proposed in 2008. I only implemented this for England, Scotland and France, as these are the only countries in the game in which SI gave all files for competitions in the comps.fmf files which you can download above.

The downloads are for all leagues and reserve competitions and are for each individual country. They will work together. I have set it up so that in 2010 all competitions have a 4+7 rule, in 2011 all competitions have a 5+6 rule and in 2012 onwards all competitions have a 6+5 rule. Reserves and Youth Leagues have 6+5 from the start of the game.

DOWNLOAD England 6+5 Rules

DOWNLOAD Scotland 6+5 Rules

DOWNLOAD France 6+5 Rules

Place the file(s) in Documents/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2011/editor data. When starting a New Game, ensure the file(s) you want in your game are enabled. If you are not sure that it is, tick the Change box and ensure there is a tick next to the file(s) you want to run.

FAQs

I want to remove the 25 man squad rule for the English Premier League, how do I do this?

Once you have downloaded and activated the Advanced Rules panel, download the competitions above, and find the file in comps/eng/eng.xml. Open eng.xml in the editor and navigate to List>Nation>Fixture Rules. You need to edit entry 6 - these are the fixture rules for the English Premier League. Untick Squad Selection Eligibility and Squad Registration, then remove Max Squad Size from Squad Selection Rules. Save the file in the default folder (editor data) and when starting a new game make sure the file is selected.

DOWNLOAD

For your convenience I have done this for you. Place the file in Documents/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2011/editor data. When starting a New Game, ensure the file is enabled. If you are not sure that it is, tick the Change box and ensure there is a tick next to the file.

I've made a competition using the Advanced Rules and when I load up the game fm.exe crashes. What have I done wrong?

There's no shortage of reasons what is wrong with the file. The first step you should take is to search your log file. This can be found at:

Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\YOURUSERNAME\application data\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2011\logs

Windows 7: C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2011\logs

Mac OSX: Library/Logs/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2011/comp errors.log

You may need to show hidden folders to be able to find the logs folder. Inside that folder you will be able to find a file called comp errors.log. By looking in this folder after you have tested your file and closed down FM you may find a list of errors that are associated with your file.

I also highly recommend saving to different files each time you save. I usually start with version 0.01 (v0.01) then increase (0.02, 0.03 etc) unless I fix a bug I'm looking for (if it's minor I'll take it up to 0.10 and if it's major I'll increase it to 1.00). If after you have repeated these steps and cannot find an answer you could ask for people to help on this thread. They may ask you for the file to be uploaded.

There are some features the game uses that will be implemented into the Advanced Rules once I have the information.

We welcome people who are learning to use the Advanced Rules here however do not assume we will do the work for you. You will be frowned upon if you request other people to do something for you. If however you are stuck getting your file to work others may be willing to check your file for any errors.

Attempting to create the Central American Nations Cup (which is in the game but not activated per the demo) as a Gold Cup qualifier. I have a couple of questions

1) Is there any way to activate it without creating it via the advanced editor?

2) Can I create it as a Gold Cup qualifier without having to re-create the Gold Cup (which sadly is not available in the fmf files that SI has provided)? Since the Gold Cup is probably ridiculously complicated to create as it takes place in June half the time and then July the other half I'd settle for just having the tournament in the game.

Thanks (and also for the file!)

I dont see why this is complicated. It is normal, for such a competition. Same goes for UEFA Europan Championship or other continental cups.

Anyways, you must use ADVANCED PANEL, as changing national competitions is not working on "normal" editor, and recreate whole cup.

To edit SOME of the in game competitions you need to open the Resource Archiver (C:/Program Files (x86)Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2011/tools/resource archiver), then select Extract Archive - Locate comps.fmf in the location C:/Program Files (x86)Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2011/data - then choose a location to save the archive. If you want to save time I have done this for you already. Check the OP, I will edit it with a download link.

Excellent, been trying to get it activated all day (have pre-loaded through steam so can't play game)

Any new features of note?

New features as per the Advanced Panel include the ability to add Internatiopnal Competitions thanks to the option of being able to create new Continental Competitions. You can also clear Yellow Cards at certain stages.

any new general editor upgrades of note as well? Mass Editing etc? Cheers for the AP though, you're a wizard mate.

It appears that there is mass editing - however as I have not done so much editing other than coordinates for Japanese cities in an ill fated attempt at the J-League, I can't comment on this.

Attempting to create the Central American Nations Cup (which is in the game but not activated per the demo) as a Gold Cup qualifier. I have a couple of questions

1) Is there any way to activate it without creating it via the advanced editor?

2) Can I create it as a Gold Cup qualifier without having to re-create the Gold Cup (which sadly is not available in the fmf files that SI has provided)? Since the Gold Cup is probably ridiculously complicated to create as it takes place in June half the time and then July the other half I'd settle for just having the tournament in the game.

Thanks (and also for the file!)

1. SI have already said that you cannot create international competitions with the editor (unless you use the Advanced Rules.

2. If you are creating a qualifier for a competition that is not in game then not only will you have to create that competition but also the one that the teams qualify into.

Will be possible create a XML League File and block edition for other players?

If you mean what you have said before and create a password for your file, then no you cannot. But I still think that this is a good idea.

Cheers for the list of tournaments mate, may well give an expansion of the MLS a proper go now. I haven't got the game yet, but how easy is the mass edit option? is it a simple click of a button or do you have to run something?

You can change the number of entries returned from a search from the default of 500 to unlimited. Select all with CTRL+A, and hit Edit. So if you were editing players you could change the nationality of all the players.

Dear forum members,

This year is the start of the league in between professional (Eredivie & Jupiler League) and amateur football called the "Topklasse".

My wish is to apply this change into the database. After trying some changes in the editor I end up with the same problem all the time.

As for the "Topklasse" the league and the teams are being set up already. Though the "Hoofdklasse" is also available. And my problem is the following: I can not select the Topklasse as the third in ranking, after the Eredivie and Jupiler League, although i select it as the third the Hoofdklasse stays ranked as the third. This leads to, that the teams promoted from Topklasse are not going to the Jupiler League (as for the teams relegated in the Jupiler League), but end up in the Hoofdklasse. So I tried to errase the Hoofdklasse, but as well this don't help because now there's an empty space ranked as the third leauge in the Dutch pyramid.

Does anybody has an idea how to set up the "Topklasse" in a valid way so all the teams promoted and relegated end up in the right league, without using the "Hoofdklasse" (which in fact has to be the fourth ranking league. Split up in many regional, saturday and sunday leagues)?

I Hope any body knows a way. And already Thanks

Congrets to SI Games for creating another wonderfull game!

Well when I inserted this format stuff in it fudged up my editor. Now the words just appear in funny places faded out and such.

Anyone know why this could have happened. I'm guessing a problem in decompression of the files or something.

I just found this reply in the Data issues-Holland topic:

Yes, there's something fishy going on with that. It should pretty much work, but it seems for some reason the Hoofdklasse is hard-coded and thus doesn't allow the Topklasse to come over it or something. (All has been set in my database)

This was brought up around a week ago by one of the leading members of The Dugout. The Programmers told me they are looking into adjusting this for the Game Day Release Patch.

However, I have no idea if this actually gets done. So hopefully it does. It will not be playable (Company rules) - but then it should be easily adjustable through the Competition Editor.

It seems like a bug or not?

Is there any way with the advanced rules to create a Champions League continental comp with some teams from other continents being able to play? Or should I keep it as a domestic cup then adding other leagues as I did last year?

If you look at the folder where you need to extract the contents of format.rar to, it should look the same as the contents of format.rar. If you look at the screenshot above, You will see that there is now a section called List. This is the Advanced Rules. If you want to learn more about how the competitions should be set up download the competitions file from the first post and try some of them out (the files in the eng folder are a good start).

You might be able to get it in the game but you'd need to change the Olympics as well as create a new Continents section for Africa to include the competition.

Concerning the Topklasse issue in the dutch league system. I already mentioned it two other treads. You can remove a few lines concerning the Hoofdklasse in the xml-file. In the editor the "Eerste Divisie" will be the lowest tier and you can add all the lower tiers you want. In fact you need to add one, because else the Eerste Divisie has no division where clubs can regelate to.

Yeah I've had no problem making rules in that list section, I'm just not all that aware of how to save these rules. Things like a) do I have to load the eng file and edit it, or can I start rules from scratch? Because when I did this, it was moaning about the real english leagues having 0 teams in (I had created another eng lge and put teams into that league and made advanced rules. b) where do I save them? c) what format? etc. etc. Many questions that I'm sure I'll find the answers to over time.

In truth, I've taken an hour or two on it tonight, but I'll look into it heavily over the weekend and see what I can deduce, as I probably spend more time on the editor than on the game, it'd be nice to get involved in one of the projects around here, if I can get non-terrible at editing.

You save the file as normal (File>Save Editor Data or Save Editor Data As...) and you can choose to save as normal or compressed (Settings>Compress Editor Data Files).

You can edit the file you downloaded or start from scratch, it is up to you. When you start the game, the file you save must be selected when you are selecting which database to load (it will show Editor Data Files and there will be a box to tick if you want to change which ones to load with the game).

I'd go with starting with a file that you can choose to load up, means you dont muck up main databse, far easier this year with advanced panel than last year, already got scottish west junior super league up and running, just checking promotions and relegations work

OK Thanks. The issue I had with this is that when I deleted the top 2 english leagues, created new versions in the database, and then built the rules for these leagues, when I start a new game it doesn't recognise that I've created new rules and it complains that the Prem has 0 teams and the Championship has 5 teams and thus won't let me start in England.

I'm sure I'm doing something simple incorrectly, but as I say, these advanced rules are totally new to me. Editing as a whole isn't though, so you don't need to spoon feed for the most part! ... hopefully.

Wasn't until you posted that I realised the connotations of that name, when I signed up my two black cats were hovering about, I'm an Aberdeen fan, not Sunderland, don't have a particular English team, although I do have a soft spot for Everton for some reason, and for Man U, but only because Fergie manages them, once he leaves I'll probably hate them like everyone else.

Okay, so ok so far with editor, but once my season ends it doesn't update and the leagues in Scotland don't move on to the next year (i.e SPL stays on the same league standings as previous year), and no new fixture lists are generated.

Yeah, I'm struggling as well.

I'm trying to create a promotion playoff between the champions from 3 divisions on the same level if there are other divisions at the same level who don't need the playoff. If those were the only divisions at that level I wouldn't even need the advanced panel, but now I'm quite overwhelmed by the options.

So far what I've done is add a domestic division, set the setup date to near the end of the season when the other three divisions have finished, then added a stage Promotion Playoff and added the three last winners of the competitions. There are so many other options in there that I have no idea what they're for that I'm quite confused. Do I need the Requirements tab? If so, what goes in there, specifically for the stage? When I try the whole thing it does reserve some dates for the Promotion Playoff at the end of the season for the correct three divisions, but when it comes to scheduling it, it takes the 2nd to 4th places of just one random of the three divisions. I feel like I'm close but I'm pretty lost.

It takes a while to get used to - the old thread was full of solutions being figured out, and a lot of trial and error.

Make sure you set 0 teams to be promoted (this is a straight promotion) and instead in the League Settings set the number of clubs to be in the top playoff (this will be 1).

You shouldn't have to use Get Teams but if you do, use Get League Stage Teams.

I'm trying to fix the Spanish league rules so that there is a yellow card suspension after 5 cards (the correct rule) as opposed to after 2 cards (the rule in-game).

I have NO IDEA how to fix this issue- can someone give me a mini-walkthrough??? (via PM is fine)

If SI had released the Spanish Nation rules then you could just adjust the discipline rules.

You can fix it but you'd need to recreate Transfer Windows, reserves etc...it could take a while for such a small change. I'd report it to SI as a bug.

I think for the regional international competitions to work, the continent must be redefined with the "Advanced Editor''.

For example if you wanted to create the CEMAC Cup (Central African Cup in game), you'd need to re-create Africa first and add the Central African Cup as one of it's competitions). I'm not 100% sure of this though, I've not tried it out.

I'm still getting no joy with this advanced editing.

I need it cleared up - do I need to load these files and save them in a certain place?

C:/Program Files (x86)Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2011/data/comps maybe?

I would really like someone who knows how to do this properly to just confirm maybe 5 steps of succesfully getting one of these files to work. This is driving me mental.

EDIT - scratch that, I got it to work. Honestly I can't stress how much relief I got from that succesfully working. It's like I've just smoked 30 cigarettes.

Have you closed and reopened the editor? And are the files saved in the correct folder? (Make sure they are saved in format)

As for comps.rar, that is just a list of competitions you can edit by loading them into the editor.

Still not working. :( Ending up with a group stage in 1 which doesn't have the damn points.

Didn't give much time to respond :p upload the file as it's easier to spot any mistakes.

This advanced editor certainly doesn't work like last year's edition. Has anyone been able to get a league made from scratch to work? Mine loads up and starts, but once I get to within two days of the first league game I get an array out of bounds error. I've checked pretty much everything and I just can't figure out why. The error doesn't correlate to any specific date in the editor (for instance, the first league game is March 27th and the game crashes on the 20th. It isn't the pre-season info either since that ends on the 17th) so I'm at an absolute loss. I've tried two different nations and I've used real and made-up teams. I'm really starting to get frustrated, particularly since SI implemented something in the regular editor to not allow two nations in the same league (I'm doing a combined US/Canada league).

I'm using the advanced rules to add a champions playoff to the Premier League (I'm American, forgive me) and I'm running into a couple of issues I hope someone can help with.

1. I can't get the info about Continental Cup qualification to show up in the rules for my playoff stage. The part where it normally says the Top 3 teams qualify for the Champions League and such. This could be because I am not setting these qualifications anywhere. I'm not sure where to do so.

The game seems to be assigning these correctly without my help though, so I am not too overly concerned about this one.

2. This one is more concerning. If I look at the competition history the winner, runner up, and third place team are all correct per the playoff results. However, when I look at the club histories it shows the results from the league table, not the playoffs.

As an example, Tottenham finished 1st in the league table, but 4th in the playoff. They are not listed in the league history among the top 3, but in their club history they are listed as finishing 1st.

Is it possible somehow assign the proper finishing position to the club history?

Thanks for any assistance you can provide.

So I've tired using the MLS file to increase the number of teams and place Portland in the league, in hope of creating a massive expansion...but it doesn't work at all sadly! keep getting a message about it 'needing 16 teams found 17' or whatever. Does anyone know if this is actually possible or not?
