I didn't say it's not possible. I created FIFA > FIFA Manager db converter many years ago, but the problem with FIFA database, is that it has a limited number of leagues and players.Why it is not possible to convert fifa 14-15 database to for example fm08/09 database?
Any chance for Retro FIFA Manager mods? example: FIFA Manager 1997 (these are some 1996-97 patches for PES like the Spanish league by VintagePES)I didn't say it's not possible. I created FIFA > FIFA Manager db converter many years ago, but the problem with FIFA database, is that it has a limited number of leagues and players.
Mainly European and American teams. No Asia, Africa and Oceania.
There are no reserve teams, no youth teams, no coaching stuff, no referees etc.
So, converting Football Manager db where all these things are present, was the priority.
Also, you're thinking in a very limited way in terms of modding the game and the database.
We reached the level where we can change the starting year (so no need to manipulate dates), completely clear the database and create new clubs and players from 'zero' (no need to synchronize clubs in new and old db), add new competitions (UEFA Conference League) and remove old ones (FIFA Confederations Cup), replace countries (Kosovo and New Caledonia were added).
And we even added the ability to control players with the keyboard, but yes, it's very buggy and I think it always was.
Not from me.Any chance for Retro FIFA Manager mods? example: FIFA Manager 1997 (these are some 1996-97 patches for PES like the Spanish league by VintagePES)
We already have a plugin for FIFA Manager 08 where you can change the starting season.I was thinking about update fifa manager 08, I got familiar with database Country.sav files and I think it is possible to update database from fifa manager 14 season patch 22. I just need to implement some simple C++ tool which will convert fm14 format to fm08, probably there will be also some mapping of parameters. Cups from script directory won't be touched, datebirth of players will be decreased so for example Ronaldo in season 2008 will have 38 years. This is what probably I am able to do, the more is too difficult for me. I did similar thing when converting fifa22 database to fifa15 one. However there is none sense to play fm08 if pitch is such awful:
We also added TeamControl (full control of the team with gamepad/keyboard) feature in FM 13/14 patch.Why to update fm08? Because we can play on the pitch with manager and this is great feature. In fm09 controling player is worse and completely buggy in fm10. So fm08 is the last one fifa manager version where control of player works smoothly.
Maybe this will help https://fifam.miraheze.org/wiki/3D_Pitch_Customization@Dmitri
1.) do You know how to make patterns in fifa manager 08 pitch?
2.) Does script studio do some parameters conversion between fifa manager 14 and other fifa versions? Example below. In fifa manager 14 there are 449 faces. In fifa manager 08 there is less number of faces. So probably some values conversion is needed. Does script studio support this one or the tool just rewrite face id without any conversion to fifa manager 08 database?
So if I want to design tool for database conversion my first step should be to do mapping for each parameter value in fifa manager 14 to the most suit value in fifa manager 08.
