Just found Neil Brock on my game. He's a scout at Crawley Town and with scouting attributes of 6 for both potential and actual, my guess is he's not very good....

Sorry, Neil. ;)

Added myself and a couple of my friends to the game but haven't seen any of those newgens. Loaded new game 4 times but there is always only one russian regen Pavel Sirotkin.

There is how my file looks like (named it newgens.edt and put it into /data/db/1100/edt):

"DETAILED_FUTURE_REGEN" "Ivan" "" "Scherbina" "26/03/1979" "Russia" "Valencia" "0" "5" "3" "188" "80" "3" "" "26" "Taganrog"
"DETAILED_FUTURE_REGEN" "Ilja" "" "Scherbina" "18/04/1986" "Russia" "Lokomotiv Moscow" "0" "5" "2" "187" "76" "2" "" "" "Taganrog"
"DETAILED_FUTURE_REGEN" "Alexandr" "" "Popov" "18/06/1982" "Russia" "Barcelona" "0" "4" "3" "182" "76" "1" "" "" "Taganrog"
"DETAILED_FUTURE_REGEN" "Oleg" "" "Chesnokov" "12/02/1983" "Russia" "Kuban" "1" "6" "5" "174" "72" "4" "" "" "Kransodar"
"DETAILED_FUTURE_REGEN" "Nikolay" "" "Scherbina" "14/04/1956" "Russia" "R. Madrid" "0" "4" "6" "184" "78" "3" "" "" "Taganrog"

Last one if my father actually but added him too since year of birth doesn't really matter.

What am I doing wrong?

The future regens are loaded up into the game from the config file but they are not necessarily used with the very first newgens that are created in the game. So you might have to wait for the first full intake of newgens after the first season before seeing more of the "future_regen" players.

To test it just create multiple entries of the same thing then there should be a few of them at the start of the game at least. I did that with a rather rude name repeated thousands of times and ran the game for a number of years and the Scotland squad was half full of those players.

This is what the entry for me is in the config file we used for the game which seems to work apart from the footed part which you should probably replace with the numbers Riz listed before

"DETAILED_FUTURE_REGEN" "Craig" "" "Hunter" "09-04-1989" "Scotland" "Rangers" "1" "5" "25" "191" "95" "Both" "ATTACKER_CENTRAL" "7" "5202271"

FM10 doesn't seem to have a "FUTURE_REGEN" config file. Are the future regens hard-coded in this game?

Yeah, maybe change your year of birth. I wasn't really born in 1989 (I wish)

There isn't a future regen file I don't think. We have one we use but I think it's magically added to one of the database files.

I think they probably are. Either that or they are stored in a different place.

You can create a "FUTURE_REGEN" config file yourself, of course. :thup:

Edit - Didn't see Ter's response above. What he said. :)

Ahh.. if you put in the correct birth year and it makes you old enough at the start of the game, then the data is likely to be used for a newgen non-player rather than a player.

So if you want to make sure your future regen appears as a player, put his birth year late enough for him to be around 16 years old at the start of the game.

What do the numbers represent? I have only done this before with the basic name, age and favourite club. Are the numbers things such as potential ability etc?

How did you get this to work? I have had a go but no joy. Can you send me your config if possible to edit?

Thanks in advance.

There you go mate

"DETAILED_FUTURE_REGEN" "Neil" "" "Huntington" "07.11.1993" "England" "Leeds" "0" "7" "1" "177" "82" "0" "ATTACKER_CENTRAL" "10" "8601486"

Remember your not forced to be in at start of game and put a diffrent date of birth if you want to be a player otherwise like i did 1st time i put my correct d.o.b and i was made a scout :)

Great stuff mate.. Think it's a good addition to be honest...

Shame you cant set at what club the regen starts off at though... Would really like to train one up from scratch! lol

Well considering if you turn up at start you could try sign yourself :)

Like i say make sure you edit your D,O,B as if your too old like i am really you'll be a scout or something

Ha-ha I'm not that old to be fair, but just not young enough to be a Regen! ;)

Will try it out later and run a few tests!

Thanks for your help mate! :D
