FIFA 18 Questions Thread

Okay. For anyone unfamiliar with CGFE or using the women, there is a read me included with install instructions plus a speed/accel slider suggestion. The women's game plays much different and will likely require adjusting several of your sliders.

Game Speed settings on fast as well, forgot that. If you prefer slow, you will probably have to raise the speed/accel sliders.
Amazing! Thank You. I'm going to test it as far as I'm at home.

Sure. With this db, I'm using Sprint Speed 29, Acceleration 48, Game Speed Settings on Fast, seems about right. This db is different from mine, player stats are untouched, so I'm having to test and adjust sliders. Whereas in my db I edited players' speed, accel and agility ratings, so it plays a bit different.

Did You also integrate the players from the women's NTs?
No, too much work, this was meant as something to upload quickly so people could try it. If you want the real NT women, open my players table in Excel, then overwrite any player with their default values from the original unedited players table. Move/transfer them to league teams via the teamplayerlinks table.
 
If you're interested, it's easy enough to edit my db, and change all 340 real NT women back to their original selves with real faces. I can explain how, if and when you're interested. It's a good editing project if you want to learn about working with DBM and Excel.
Sign me in!

I also tried your DB, everything worked pretty well. Thanks again! There'sa lot of potential in it to do even more.
If you have any ideas how to remove the minipics, tell me. I also thought about not changing the last names, since they aren't gender specific. What do you think?

Minipics are easily switched out using CGFE, that's the project I'm working on now. I exported all the women's NT photos, and am importing them back into the mens' teams (who are now all women).

You can easily revert anything in that db: on your desktop, copy the players table of my db. Now copy the original db players table (rename it playersoriginal). Open both in Excel, side by side. Use the toolbar tools to sort the playerid column in both dbs (column CP), smallest value to largest.

To revert any player in my db back to the original player, copy the original player's row of values, and paste it onto the edited player's row of values. To revert back to original last names, highlight the entire lastnameid column (column B.) in the original table, and paste it into the lastnameid column in the edited table. Done.

Reverting back to the original NT women is more complicated, it will require some explaining.
 
Do you know where the names of the youth players are stored?
career_firstnames, career_lastnames tables, I assume (I don't play career, so not familiar with career files). You can test that by assigning 2-3 names only, then starting a test career to see if those are the names the game generates.

Thanks again. Buuuuut, I'm not going to edit 2800 names tonight^^ (only speaking about the first names, tho)
Maybe I just copy&paste your names.

It takes 30 seconds. Copy and paste the code(s) into the column all at once. Copy the first code in row 1, then drag down highlighting the whole column, and when you reach the bottom of the column with all 5000 name codes highlighted, click paste. Done.

Hey @bangus (and everyone interested)
A small update on my experiences so far:
My career at the end of season one is looking good so far. Editing the tables using FE and Excel also worked fine (thanks for the help introducing me to that).
I had a little trouble editing with CGFE after importing the DB. When I did, the career crashed at the end of August for unknown reason. So I had to edit thing after starting the career ingame using Cheat Engine.
Implementing female first names for the youth players seemed to work good. Problem is that every youth player comes with a male body (face and hair are female, tho). Wasn't able to find a way to change that in the DB files. Maybe there is something in DLC files but the last times I was looking there I didn't see a code that said that generated players have to be male (body). So if anybody has an idea: be so kind to let me know.

Haha! Yeah I doubt you'll find a fix, the game almost certainly isn't programmed to generate females in career mode. I never thought anyone would ever use it for that, I just play exhibition and tourneys.

How do you do a shot with a bit of curve on it? I can't seem to do that on the PC. Also I don't know how to save a penalty with the goalkeeper. Well, in particularly, what do I push to make him dive one way or another?

GK controls can be viewed in the pause menu. Curve is dependent on the player's skills, including curve rating of course, and things like shot power and L-stick aiming. Create an all-99 player then go practice free kicks in the arena (L/D on d-pad). Big time curve.
