FIFA Infinity Patch 16 (19/20 Edition)

I think that the problem is in the way names for "regens" (youth players, scouts and such) are handled:
http://soccergaming.com/index.php?threads/career-youthplayer-name-groups-tables.183224/

If the tables used for creating youth player names haven't been altered (I don't think they have, sincerely), they now have references to names that are in a different language.

I'll explain it in detail...
  • In the "careerlastnames" table, you may see that, say, name #250 is assigned to group 6 (Portugal and Brazil IIRC, you can check it in the "career_namegroups" table).
  • If in the default database name #250 was "Moreira" (a tipical Portuguese surname), everything was fine.
  • With the modded database, the "playernames" table has been altered (because the team needed to add some names, replace others, and on top of that Creation Master does its own garbage collection on this table) so maybe now name #250 is "Moore" (not a Portuguese surname, is it?)
  • BUT... The "careerlastnames" table hasn't been altered, so for the game name #250 (Moore) is still suitable as a surname for youth players.

I've been having exactly this issue for a long time in FIFA 14 (I'm trying to create a career with 100% fantasy players), and the solution I found was to drop these tables:
  • career_firstnames
  • career_lastnames
  • career_commonnames
  • career_namegroups
This forced FIFA 14 to look for names and surnames in the "playernames" table instead, but... If the "regen" player was Portuguese, FIFA 14 would only choose between names and surnames belonging to Portuguese players (probably it would join the "players" and the "playernames" tables, selecting a random name and a random surname from players matching the required nationality).

I don't know whether this will also work for FIFA 16, but maybe it's worth a try.
What do you mean "drop", how and where? Thanks.

What do you mean "drop", how and where? Thanks.
What I did was to open the DB with DB Master and to wipe those four tables (removing all the records in them and leaving them empty).
Basically, wiping these tables, you "force" the game to look for Croatian/Portuguese/Japanese names from the main "playernames" table but the game looks at the nationality first, so if you're scouting for, say, Portuguese regens, the game will take a random name and a random surname from already existing Portuguese players and use them together for the regen.

Yeah, it's technically incorrect to say "drop" (dropping a table implies also that it's going to be deleted from the DB after it's been wiped IIRC, and we're not doing that here) but it was to give the idea thaat they were to be nuked.

Thanks for the comments everyone!


Clean FIFA or can install on FIP 2.0?
I would strongly recommend a clean install. I refreshed some folders and some files will have been removed from the build. The


It looks really awesome as always!
Thanx for your hard work!

Oh s**t. Looks like i have team names error. Language fix didnt worked, and i have problem couple months i cant open programs (like File Master or DB Master). How can i solve this?
If you have problems running Rinaldo's tools, it is understandable that LanguageDBFix does not work as it uses Rinaldo's libraries. Rinaldo's documentation mentions .NET framework 4.0 is needed, maybe you do not have that installed?

Here is my version of locale.big with the language DBs removed. However, it contains the UK version of locale.ini which makes English the default language.

I would be useful if people shared some non UK versions of locale.ini. It may allow me to provide an alternate solution for those who have problems without forcing the UK version of the file.


Hello,
After I followed all the steps of the installation, I have 2 problems:
1.First time I could not enter the game (it gIve me an error in the loading page the one with EA sports and FIFA 16)
2. Then I managed to get into the game, I don't know how, but I can't go into carrer mode

I have 2 erros in crashdump folder:
bootsession_2020_01_13_201812
crash_2020_01_13_201851

If anyone can help me with a tip I would be grateful.
The loading error may have been caused by a language DB issue.

Can you describe the career mode problem in more detail? Also make sure the career mode compdata is installed via FIP Tournament Manager.


Will be the sequel as FIFA Infinity Patch 16 V3. 1 thank you
An update is planned.


Why is UEFACL , UEFAEL , UEFASC , UEFA EC in "NED" - Netherlands country in tournament and WorldCup in "RUSS" - russian country in tournament editing on CM16????
You have activated the tournament mode compdata. These tournaments must be added to countries so they can be selected in tournament mode.


Hello scouser09 I would like to ask if I add my leagues two or will the patch work or will not read my mods version 3.0 Infinity Patch
You should be able to add some additional leagues without issues. I have not done any tests to confirm this though. Make backups just in case.


Does anyone have a big facepack for this mod?
Or could anyone simply upload his faces, hair ecc. folders?
It’s a shame faces are missing
This is something we previously avoided as many converted faces caused crashes for some people but not others, this made it very difficult to keep the patch stable. To my understanding, a solution has now been found.

I consider it important that we have permission to use and give credit for everything we include in this mod. Therefore, an included face pack would pretty much need to be complied from scratch. If anyone would like to help with this, please send me a PM.


Young academy players have sick names... résolve?
Can you give me a screenshot of this problem?


It looks like the "drop tables" trick also works in FIFA 16.

Default FIP 16 database - Scout names, Croatian players, Japanese players, Portuguese players:

Database with the four tables I said earlier dropped - Scout names, Croatian players, Japanese players, Portuguese players:

Much more accurate, don't you think?

Maybe this is an interesting read for @scouser09 or for some other team member. :)
This is very interesting. It would definitely give a greater variation for countries with large number of player in the DB. It would also give better local names as the scheme applies some name groups to multiple countries.

The proposed solution may have some flaws though. A likely problem with this method is that countries with a very small number of players in the DB will have a very small pool of names for generated players. It would also not stop some strange choices. For example, Adebayo Akinfenwa is an English player of Nigerian decent. It may feel unrealistic if his first name or last name in particular was allocated to a white English player.


hi guys i need to edit the fifa 16 database i downloaded fifa17filesquadfileconverter i saw that the file called file squads 1.0 is needed but i don't know where to find it kindly someone help me? thanks
Use Creation Master 16. The program you is for converting FIFA 17 squad files.

Oh yeah, surely it has.
Unfortunately it's a matter of trying to make the ends meet and not always the result is perfect.
I can confirm that the problem of the "too small pool" is real. In FIFA 14, I had like 10 Chinese regens which only had two surnames. I had to "edit in" some Chinese free agents so the game would have a bigger name pool to choose from, and it worked.
About the Akinfenwa thing, you're right (obviously). I had a Swiss regen which surname was Rodriguez and which name was an Albanian one (not sure if Granit or Xherdan but you get what I mean) and it did feel very strange indeed. I don't know honestly if England is indexed in the "career_namegroups" table: if it's not, what you said could possibly happen also in a "clean" FIFA 16 as far as I know.

Alright, thanks, I'll try it!

At first @scouser09 amazing work! I played a few games and I think it's an amazing update. One thing that annoy me is the problem with the yellow cards so that you're players are banned after two games. I think I found a solution for this problem:

You must rework the settings.txt in "FIFA 16\dlc\dlc_FootballCompEng\dlc\FootballCompEng\data\compdata"

You must add following line for the competion you want to change: X,rule_numyellowstored,4

For example for the German Bundelsiga it would be:

1094,rule_numyellowstored,5

Maybe you can add this in a future update.

And you don’t know how to separate the championship and cup cards of the country (in many countries they are not summed up)?
P.S. Sorry for my English.

Not so big issue but annoying: after installing patch (19/20 edition) the commentators almost every time call the formations wrong. Same problem with referee names.
