I'm not sure, but I think the sliders also have an effect on the match rating. I remember testing this out and seeing the resulting match ratings dropped if user sliders are amped up or cpu sliders are toned down. i could be wrong though.


That's interesting... I'll test this out, because I always have my sliders adjusted. I wonder if adjusting these values via the .ini has the same effect, because in Fidel's cl.ini he sets several of these slider values.

If I don't see an effect putting sliders on default, I'm going to have to just do a series of tests on all of the .ini file values I can think to tweak. I'll report back.

Thanks for th response.

I discovered something interesting in reference to the match rating issue I described above:

If I restart the match right after kickoff, the match rating system works as it should (with the exception of player ratings dropping after being subbed). I have tested this on five matches, two of which I played all the way through and then restarted, one of which I played 20 mins and restarted, and another two in which I did an immediate restart.

I would assume that restarting the match resets some sort of dynamic difficulty setting (scripting), but I do have adaptive difficulty disabled in the product.ini file. I guess there are more adaptive difficulty settings running behind the scenes.

played a tons of it with my mates last nite. main problem is when its fairly a loose ball/pass there, players dont give a shite about it on both sides the cpu makes them run away from the ball rather towards it, only YOU can make one player run at the ball. very annoying.


anyone experiencing this? i want to find out what causing this. is this by default, a slider doing this or some career patch of mine? (i dont have much time to test it out)

have seen many complain about that on other forums i play of legendary and cannot say i have noticed it that much one or two times i have seen it. maybe its related to the players interceptions settings in tactics wonder if setting them to aggressive will make them attack loose balls more? maybe being on conservative makes them afraid to leave their position and attack the ball in fear of not getting there in time and leaving space? even in situations where they are 100% sure to get the ball

btw im having a problem with editing my database with dbmaster any changes i do in the tool are not reflecting in game i have turned off match day live deleted squad files even rebuilt using i68 controller but still no changes showing to players age ect.. it was ok before a few weeks ago not sure what i am missing? i have a database in the db files folder that i am editing

also last question how can we change team names? i want to edit the italian teams any ideas? thanks

I experience it every match I play, I agree it is very annoying.

It is almost as if they don't want to receive the pass.

hi guys, sorry to be risking the wrath on here but hoping someone can help me assign specific boots to players in fifa 16??

I have attempted to use CG Explorer and RevMod but neither work, maybe I am doing something wrong?

Any help is much appreciated :)

Trying to get national teams working in Manager Mode.

Alright, I've been doing some research on this issue. Several findings. Some are probably already known but I'm gonna document them anyway so that everything is in one place.

First, it appears that the weird issue where teams would get double booked for friendly matches is still around in '16 I was hoping that they had fixed that since they had an even number of teams this year. No such luck. You can remove this issue by removing the legs for the international friendly matches altogether. Then the teams just won't play friendlies.

I was specifically trying to test adding a concacaf qualification tournament. I've failed. Here's why:

If I just wanted to add another team to the FIFA World Cup Finals tournament, I can do that. But, as soon as I try to alter the way in which that tournament draws teams in, it destroys the entire tournament. By default, there are three teams entered into the tournament via "Get specific team in a specific position." If I try to link these teams through the Gold Glory Cup, try to add another group to the Asian Cup or try to create a new tournament, it fails.

Creating a new international tournament appears to lead to a crash every time. I believe it has something to do with the designation of the tournament as an "InterQual" Competition Type. But, I'm uncertain.

If I modify the Asian cup, I can get the teams playing qualifying matches, but I can't link the results of that tournament to the FIFA World Cup, it breaks the FIFA World Cup Tournament without creating a crash.

If I try to modify the Gold Glory Cup and link teams through it, it breaks the FIFA World Cup Tournament without creating a crash.

So, on this issue, I see no other solution. There is not, in my opinion so far, any way to create a qualification tournament for CONCACAF (or OFC or CAF) and link it to the FIFA World Cup Tournament. I'm pretty disappointed in that result. It seemed like we could find some way to jiggle it to make it work. But, that doesn't seem possible without breaking one of the other tournaments. Even that may not work.

Oh well. If anyone else has any additional thoughts or avenues that may be attempted, let me know.

I have several questions:

1. How many new leagues/teams can you create(without replacing existing ones) before you crash the game?
2. Is it possible to port mods from FIFA15 to FIFA16 using creation master?
3. Is there a way to edit career mode save files?

1. I don't know for this year. Last year it was possible to bed north of 20 leagues. Formations issue will make things harder this year.
2. Not directly as far as I know. But you can use other programs to make the conversions. It's just several more steps involved.
3. Not yet as far as I have heard.

Hey Rinaldo...

I've just testing with national teams. Normally, if you added a new nt for career mode, there is a bug for some teams - they have 2 matches at one day!
see here (Costa Rica for example) :


Its really easy to fix this.. the last line of settings.txt is:
num_games,1

if I edit it manually to:
num_games,0

its solve the bug.
see :


may you can fix this in beta 4. :)

Hey guys, having a hard time adding a league to an existing country right now. I'm recreating the Dutch Jupiler League, and here's what I've done so far, I might forget something:
-Added the league to a new slot. added a logo.
-created 19 new teams to be in the league.
-all those 19 teams have enough players, correct 'last season' positions (including those promoted to eredivisie), managers, stadium names, logos.
-Added it to the league database. To make things simple for now I've left the playoffs aside and have 3 promotion slots in the league and 3 relegation slots in the Eredivisie. Added all the slots needed for promotion.
-Added teams and dates to both the dutch cup and the Jupiler League.
-Added referees.
-Added fantasy team to Rest of the World with some of my own players I could swap any Jupiler League team with if I decide to play with the fantasy team.

When I test the new setup with a team in the Eredivisie or any other league beside the Jupiler League, the season simulates just fine with all teams playing 36 fixtures as they should + the Dutch cup works perfectly as well. Promotion-relegation works.
The only problem I have is when I start a career with a Jupiler League team, since the game will freeze during the first loading screen. Can't seem to get into the actual season. Does anyone have an idea of what I'm doing wrong? Anyone who would like to look into my database? Thanks in advance :)

Greetings,

I have been having a tough time using photoshop to create normal maps (incorrectly called bump maps here,though I'm not sure why ;)) and specular maps (also called reflex files for some reason). I found a program that makes the creation of normal maps soooo easy, although it's not free. It's called Quixel Suite, more specifically the program 'NDO painter' within the suite. It allows for automatic normal creation of a texture in Photoshop with easy to understand and implement options. I suggest that those of you who are having issues like I was check it out :)

BTW: I could be wrong about the terminology being incorrect on the forum, but I have searched everywhere and read tutorial after tutorial and I could find no other conclusion.

I'm moving my league from PES to FIFA and I have a big trouble: to use our teams, made by more than 10 years of market, we have to set "personalized team" in the room option.... but how can we control that our opponents is using real players and not an edited one with al stats to 99?
