This could be a whole lot of mess, but I'll try to express my ideas here. 1. Edit DBI directly, settle down the player attributes and team management first. 2. Start from national teams, then club players. 3. There's no way we can know the 13+4 attributes' algorithm and model, so what I've done is simply increase or decrease all the players in a team together. For example when I want to replace Japan with Taiwan, simply decrease all of them by 4 and do some fine-tuning in team management, then it lost to Thailand 1-6 lol. 4. New teams like Montenegro or Gibraltar are replacements in CONCACAF zones, later I'll post my planned list to the replacement. 5. I have no time in modding the graphics. If someone can come to help, please visit my FB page or leave a reply here. 6. Minnow teams should get what they deserved in-game since this can greatly enhanced the difficulty to make it to World Cup. 7. National players first then arrange or duplicate club players right in their position(?) 8. I think there's no software now can render gifs with fading opaque values. The artificial is implemented in many UI graphics of 98 series. For now, that's all. Later I'll post team replacement list when I come back home.
