Credits and thanks: to Moddingway for his fabulous FIFA Squads Files Converter tool and for sharing his db files; to Fidel for all the mods, files and editing tips he happily provides and shares; and to regularcat who helped mentor me years ago when I was a novice at all this. ------- Important Update: Use Fidel's FIFA 18 Squads save file (link below) to create your FIFA 18 squads1 and squadsdefault files for Moddingway's Converter. Moddingway's db contains tables that currently cannot be edited/imported back into the Squads save file. ------- First, a quick overview of the database (db) editing process. Links to all files mentioned here will be provided below. Tools, programs and files used in this tutorial: - Moddingway's FIFA Squads Files Converter tool - Rinaldo's DB Master 15 tool - Excel or a similar program - squads save file - db file - db-meta.xml file 1. Start with any squads save file generated via the in-game save feature. 2. Extract the db file from the squads save file using Moddingway's Converter tool. 3. Add the db file to an empty folder containing the db-meta.xml file. 4. Use Rinaldo's DBM tool to open that folder and load the db tables into the DBM tool. At this point, the db tables are visible in the DBM tool, and can be individually edited in the tool itself. This method though is both inefficient and unreliable. The best way to edit tables is to continue on and: 5. Use the Export function in the DBM tool to export the tables into an empty folder. 6. Open tables in Excel to edit. 7. Use the Import function in the DBM tool to import the edited tables back into the db. 8. Transfer the newly-edited db file back into the Converter tool folder. 9. Use the Converter tool to convert the db file back into the squads save file. 10. Transfer the newly-created squads save file into your game, and play. Moddingway's Squads Files Converter tool was developed for FIFA 17. It will first need to be tweaked to use with FIFA 18. This is the process: 1. The Converter tool folder contains a squads1 file and a squadsdefault file. Both are 4,159 KB in size. These two FIFA 17 files need to be removed and replaced with two corresponding FIFA 18 files. 2. Place the FIFA 18 squads save file you plan to use on your desktop. Right-click and make a second copy of the same file. Re-name one of the files squads1, and the other squadsdefault. 3. Delete the FIFA 17 squads1 and squadsdefault files from the Moddingway Converter folder. 4. Transfer the newly-created FIFA 18 squads1 and squadsdefault files into the Moddingway Converter folder. Both should be 4,871 KB in size. Moddingway's Squads Files Converter is now ready to be used with FIFA 18. Be aware you may have to use the Converter's Browse For Squad Save function to search for and load the new squads1 file you just created and placed into the folder.
