Back in Time [FIFA 16 to FIFA 09]

The purpose of this thread is to seek help in order to totally convert the FIFA 16 DB to FIFA 09. In addition to also converting the assets such as kits (including fonts/numbers), boots, and player faces to match those of the 2008/09 season.

This is a personal project, I have invested a great deal of time in it and is not yet finished. I am posting it here so I can get help from those who are interested.

I have all the FIFA 09 files both from PC and PS3 versions. Personally, I think that if I could find a way to convert the old DB to the FIFA 16 version it would make everything much easier and less time consuming. Help is much appreciated.

I chose the season 2008/09 because personally I find that season to be the one I enjoyed the most with great talents still emerging such as Messi, Ronaldo, but also childhood legends still going at it such as Del Piero, Beckham, Ronaldinho.

Below you can see the screenshots and links to a highlight reel of a game where absolutely everthing has been converted to FIFA 09.

Excellent idea, what are your plans or how are you progressing? The ps3 kits are eligible with the 16? To convert the database maybe you should export the tables, player, playerloans, teams, etc. I know very little about it. But if the project is advanced it could help in graphics.

Looks really amazing man! You know that Raven made Delle Alpi right?
I haven’t added any new stadiums yet because I’ve been working on the Kits and Squads for Seria A. Perhaps that’s something you could provide assistance with.

At the moment only Serie A has been completed but there are several things missing if this patch is to be considered total.

For example, as I edit every team I’m lowering every player’s age by 8 years one by one. This is very time consuming and would be great if I can just do this once and apply to all. Other things include Champions League League badges for kits to be automatic. I’ve seen it done but would gladly take the help of anyone who knows how to do it.

As for Kits im using Ps3 original images and adapting them to the FIFA 16 Format. Except for those I can find online and have enough quality.

So far I can say Boots are done 100% and balls are done for BPL, Serie A and Spanish La Liga.

I urge anyone with DB converting experience to reach out to me and make this whole process easier. That way we can focus solely on assets.

Can young players be added to appear along the way through the youth academy? For example, Neymar to appear somewhere in season 2 ...

This is really cool, can't pass on any classic 2000s stuff :D
@valambrosio2 you'll probably like it too.

Could you please share the boots please? Would be very useful for the Sputnik bootpack (btw feel free to check it for any missing 08/09 boots as well).
Kitnumbers & fonts for the top teams would be great too.

2008-09 was a great season indeed, awesome memories playing PES 2009 back in the day, and screenshots from FIFA 14 :D






UPD also please feel free to make use of these ball textures:

Includes 9 balls:
- Generic (3)
- EPL

- A-League (2)
- Turkcell (2)
