I'm getting concerned here because I have yet to receive anything but an Origin update. I'm wondering why that is the case. That being said, I also have no use for any online content in FIFA.

I'm having the same issue today. Downloaded the WC update two hours ago, and now the game crashes just before the match starts. Updated drivers, still crashes. Game ran fine for a year and even this morning. Damn it.
Finally,I got mine working,I hope you can solve your problem too!

Fidel makes the only career mode editing tools I know of. But I think it's just a player editor, don't think it allows you to move players from team to team.

Yes. I have 19,000 women players in my FIFA 18, no men!

Transferring one player takes 1 minute. Learning to transfer one player, takes 2-3 hours. But first off, which Squads are you using? The default FIFA 18 EA squads?

Do you use the DB Master tool in CGFE? That tool and the DA/CM tool can corrupt your db. If you want to make sure your db doesn't get corrupted, you have to export the db files and edit them in Excel or WPS.

"Learning to transfer one player, takes 2-3 hours"

Wow.. is that hard ? damm...

Squads ?

I'm using the original squad file that i edited in game first.. is that a problem ?

I mean, i created some players with the in-game editor..
maybe i have to start from the beginning ? delete all my players ?


Again, sorry my english.

No,I don't use CGFE,I use DB master and squad file converter.

Okay. If you converted a squads file to create your db files, and now there are editing issues happening, it could be because you did not remove all the bogus 0 values that happen when you convert.

Also, if you edit directly in the DBM tool, it doesn't always work correctly. To make sure your edits work 100% of the time, you have to use DBM to export the tables, then edit them in Excel/WPS.

I really do suggest you switch to using CGFE, and the DBM/Excel method. It's just cleaner, no bogus 0 values etc. Plus it allows editing access to 100 more db tables.

I say 2-3 hours but if you are a fast learner, 1 hour tops. No, your db is not the issue. It can be done. But it creates a new issue. Because you are not using the current squads, it means you have to convert your old squads save, before you can edit it. And doing that causes more issues that need to be fixed before proceeding. And THAT could take 2-3 hours if you haven't done it before.

I can help you out if you want to learn. But if it's just 1 player, if you upload you squads file, I will convert it, fix it, and add Carli onto Barcelona. I'll send you the fixed files, and then you'll have a working set of files if you want to learn to transfer more players.

i'm sorry..
My rule in life: never apologize unless you actually did something wrong!

So I'm done and ready to upload. For some reason your 2 created players would not import, so I left them out. But they are easy to re-create because it doesn't look like you spent time editing their faces, right? I also did the ref edit where they are stricter with calls and cards, hope that's okay. Okay, back in a couple of minutes...

I did not test in my game because my game isn't ready, so I hope it works. If it doesn't tell me what's wrong or what happens, it might just be one thing that needs fixing.

EDIT: It did not load in my game... I am guessing the problem is your squad files are too different than mine. I used my edited (no 0 bogus values) squad tables (40 tables) and just 3 of yours that I edited and cleaned up.

Ohh, thank you very much xD

Will test it tonight xD

Today is a "bad" day to play here ahaha ... but thank you .. really xD

Edit: So, I did a quick test and it not worked, it "seems" Damaged ..

maybe, it's because my game is ... cracked ? (Update 2.. if that matters)

if it is .. can you still teach or link to some tutorials where can i learn it?

my main "request" is the possibility to put anyone (Carli Lloyd for example)
on any team .. (Barcelona for example)

I tried the Table (Cheat Engine) but I just do not know where to go xD

Thank you for your time .. patience .. and help .. xD

You need to tell me stuff like that before... Could be because your files are a different language and the two are conflicting, I don't know. Anyway, this thread is my tutorial, so start there. Better yet, start over and use CGFE because there are 1000x more editing options with that method than with this one. There is a brief start-up tutorial on page 16 of the CGFE thread in the editing forum.
