in the calendar the season ends in the middle of the year, May 31, and I want it to end on December 31. how do I do that? is it in compdata? I tried already to add in settings.txt ", schedule_seasonstartmonth, JAN" but it still does not work. Help
What league is it and does it have a first season real schedule ?

Change the collar of the kit in the DB, but when entering the game no change is made, still having the collar that the kit has by default.

I've extracted a db from the last EA squad file to do the same table edits I always do using DBMaster15.
Is there any reason why this new squad would need a different xml? Every time I try to resave with this one and convert to a squad file again, it's failing. What could be different?

One protection used this year is size.
They must be the same size or it will not work.
This has rised many problems for me too. I believe you are using HXD?
Paste the code and check size.

Hmm..thats interesting.
No, I'm not using HXD just DBMaster15 and excel to edit the tables, then importing them back. I'll see if the original squad is the same size or not after editing.

UPDATE: No, the size is remaining the same even after editing. 4,871kb.

Here is an image I think could be helpful.

The edited db from November that works fine on the left.
The winter transfer db on the right.
Both loaded with the FIFA18 xml.

Tables are in different order in both though one table on the left has the same columns as the one on the right, they just aren't in the same place.



Any problems with this?
EDIT: I've gone through and compared them one by one, some of their content is different, naturally, but they contain the same kind of data. Same number of tables in both, same names. Just out of order.

That is how it should be.
...darn. Then I have no idea what could be wrong.
All zero values deleted, db resaved. Plugged into the folder where I use save converter. Squad file created from that db.
What does the "squadsdefault" have to be? Still the original unedited squad? Or changed to be a copy of the edited one?

I'm trying to add Arshavin to my game, who is in the database (when viewed by Frosty Editor) but his unique ID is not in the db.

Does anyone know how I can add it?

I followed Bangus's steps in his helpful tutorial but the game keeps telling me my squad file is damaged :(

There isn't really a generic FIFA forum so I thought I'd ask here since it's likely to have more viewers...
Is there any FIFA mod that will permit a "road to the Cup" type World Cup qualifying mode like the previous World Cup games?

a Tactical question... playing with Real Madrid (in any game mode) i saw that his settings is defensive at the start of any match(using D-pad to change it), a little unreal for RM...
How can i change it?

EDIT : That happens with any team with a Custom tactic... :(

They will change during the game depending on how the game plays out.

How do I put the FUT scoreboards, to the custom tournaments? or those of any other league.

The EA SPORTS scoreboards are ugly, I do not want to see them anymore.

Hello great forum friends. I have a problem with FIFA 18 and I would like to ask for your help. At the time of the match, the game is extremely slow, almost with delay. I've already updated video card, DirectX and Visual C ++, but the problem does not change. This happens via Origin or the pirated game.

I recently formatted my PC, and before it worked normally, even in ultra graphics mode.

Adding new kits and minikits i had some issues with the referee jersey color (Sometime this also happen using default kits).
Remebering PES modding where there is a file that control those setting (unicolor.bin) i'm asking : Is there something like that also on fifa? Can I in some way change these settings to make the game able to recognize them in a proper way?
