I made this for the new users (and all of the users, actually), so if they have a question, you can find an answer here. If you think there's a question that needs to be asked here for the rest of the users, plz do it here or send me a PM
--------------------

Q: What is this?
A: This is one of the biggest FIFA Communities around the world.

Q: What can I find here?
A: Here, you'll find many people talking about FIFA, and, even better, people editing FIFA.

Q: You can actually edit a game made by wonderful EA programmers? What can you edit on the game?
A: Well, most of the game is editable, specially the Graphic aspect of the game. You can add teams, leagues, players; and modify every part of that: faces, logos, kits (uniforms), balls, turfs (pitch), rosters, adboards (publicity boards next to the pitch), flags, even stadiums, etc, etc, etc.

Q: Great, and how can I edit those things?
A: All you need is time, patience and some tools. Also, there are some tutorials here. I'll give you a couple of links for you to start:
Kits: http://www.soccergaming.com/forums/showthread.php?t=143953, http://www.soccergaming.com/forums/showthread.php?t=142850, http://www.soccergaming.com/forums/showthread.php?t=144332, http://www.soccergaming.com/forums/showthread.php?t=144255
Stadiums: http://files.filefront.com/Stadium_Tutorialwmv/;4950083;;/fileinfo.html ,

Q: But I don't have the time or skills to make those...
A: First of all, remember always to use the search function, is that link up there that says "Search this forum", use some keywords and you'll find it for sure.
If you didn't have any luck, you can always ask. Always in a Request Thread. We have one for Kits and another one for Faces.
Another thing you can do is ask some one with more experience to do it, but just one person. This means you can ask a kitmaker to make you favor, but just ask to one person only.

Q: And how do I put all those things in the game?
A: You'll need an importing tool for it, the best and most complete, in my opinion, is Creation Master (by Rinaldo), you can download it (and talk/ask questions about it) here: http://www.soccergaming.com/forums/showthread.php?t=138622

Q: Ok, cool tool, but how do I use it?
A: Well, here you'll find a tutorial about how to make a team from scratch, that will help you on how to use CM.

Q: Great, now, I made my team with kits, logos, even a stadium, but now the game crashes every time it loads, what can I do?
A: Common bug, this happens because the game has it's own limit on memory, and when you use 2Generation Graphics with very big stadiums (or user-made stadiums) this would make the game crash. Most of the kits you'll find here are 2GKits and would make the game crash with stadiums like Emirates or Nou Camp. What I can advise you to do is turn all goalies kits into 1Generation, that is changing the size from 768x768 pixels to 512x512 pixels (with any graphic utility)
Another tip, when it's loading, if the game crashes in the first part it's because of the Stadium; if it crashes almost at the end, is because of the Kits.

Q: Now, I imported everything and I can't continue my manager, coz there are no players on the rosters, what's up with that?
A: CM modifies the database of the game, and that crashes with the saved rosters/games, so if you are planing to add something else more than kits (add alternate kits, change numbers, etc), I recommend you to import everything and the play the manager. If you just want to add kits and somethings without changing the database, first you can back it up, then modify the game, and use the backed up DB after, and keep on playing with your manager.

Q: I want to import only kits, do i need to use CM? It's kinda' big just for kits...
A: No, you can also use Kit Raptor, you can get it here: http://www.fifa4fans.de/downloads/onelink_e.php?showid=338

Q: I have a specific question about faces/kits/logos, would it be ok if I start a new thread about it?
A: First of all, again, USE SEARCH; then if you didn't find a solution, you can always ask in a thread already open where you see people that might help you.

Q: What does CEP means? What is that?
A: CEP means Carreer Expansion Patch. It's a really big patch with many MANY leagues around the world. They have many leagues, teams, players, etc. They add a more worldwide vision of the game. It's a really good patch, in my opinion, of course it is not flawless and it could be better, but they have good updates on the bigger teams and cool stuff, you can get it in their website or ask about it in their Official thread.

Q: I want to make the new Chelsea and Arsenal away kits, and a Barcelona kitpack. Can anyone make a tutorial?
A: There are lots of tutorials in the kitmaker ressource thread here: http://www.soccergaming.com/forums/showthread.php?t=135959 ...and please make some kits you really need.

Q: I am from Argentina / Greece / Romania / Russia / Israel / ... / Azerbaijan. Why is my league missing in fifa07/08? This league is so important, our champion has played champions league once... why doesn't ea care?
A: I don't know if they care but many important leagues are missing because of licensing. They are too expensive, or they just won't sell it to ea. I'm sure ea would like to add argentina or russia, they just can't.

Q: Where is the netherlands/japan/etc national team?
A: Same anwer here. Download them in this thread:
http://www.soccergaming.com/forums/showthread.php?t=142273
You find club teams, leagues and stadiums there, too.

Q: What does CMP means?
A: CMP, Creation Master Patch, is the best way to make and share modified things of your FIFA, you can find new teams, stadiums, even leagues, and it's really easy to import with CM07.
You'll find a big thread with CMPatches on the Editing Forum.

Q: And how do I use a CMP patch?
A: OPEN CM
OPEN FIFA (OR CEP IF YOU HAVE IT)
ON THE MENU, CLICK ON PATCH - LOAD
CLICK ON LOAD AGAIN
SELECT YOUR CMP
CLICK ON IMPORT
ON THE MENU, TOOLS - REGENERATE FAT AND BH
ON THE MENU, FILE - SAVE
CLOSE

Q: I've made a tournament in CM07 and it crashes every time I try to load it in the game... Why can't I play my tournament?
A: Your issue in TOURNAMENT MODE is most likely a scheduling issue. Your teams need a decent amount of time to complete the fixtures so try increasing the amount of time they have to play each round.

Q: I have created a player in FIFA's Editing Center and I can't find him in CM07... Where is my player?
A: You need to edit either using FIFA's editing Center or using CM07. DO NOT USE BOTH.

Q: I have another question but you didn't answer it here, what can I do?
A: First of all, use Search and see if anybody ask the same thing somewhere else; remember to use different key words. If you didn't find anything about it, and it is regarding faces, kits or something that you could ask a maker, please ask in their thread (one time). And if then, you don't get a clear answer, yes, you can make a new thread. (This is just to keep the forum clean, not because you are n00b).

CREATION MASTER 07 requires .NET Framework 2.0

If your stands are incredibly empty for really big finals or rivalry games, increase your level of detail.

I'll add more as I think of them... I started to make this thread earlier but ran outta time lol. Thanks for doing it Slowhand.

Q: Can I use the EA Rosters update patch with CM07??
A: No, not at all. There is no way around it.

How can I change created players "Playing Style"?
You can't, but I am looking at adding this capability to my EAFFAnalyser utility, along with resetting the bit that stops the commentators announcing the names of players that have been edited. I shall probably add the ability to correct a manager mode data file first, but fixing 'D. My Squads' is no more difficult.

You can edit a player's playing style with CM07 very easily.
Sure, but that doesn't help with players created in game (which it sounded to me like the OP was requesting) and nor does it help with an existing squads or manager mode data file.

Q: I am new to this forum. I was wondering... why does every kitmaker make the new manchester united kits? One set would be sufficient, wouldn't it?

A: Good question. Really good question...

There are many steps to this but if you want to create a team.. click on the team tab and then hit the + button on the left hand side to create the team. Tell it that you DO want it to create the players as well.

Then you will edit each player individually.

To Create a league hit the league tab then the + button.

Glad to hear you want to make a league!

You are crashing for some reason. More than likely what has happened is you haven't added your team to your league. Leagues with no teams in them will crash immediately.

Click on the Leagues tab

On the right there is a dropdown menu with 3 buttons under it to add remove or replace the team mentioned.

Type the first three letters of the club you wish to add, use the down arrow to scroll thru the clubs until you find your club then select ADD.

Save, then try

When i make substitution some players lose textures....
example:
In manager mode i control Chelsea
In second half when i substitute Deco for Lampard or ballack,or even any other substitution , randomnly any one player loses texture and only the .o model is visible that is the player is all gray in color and some other player losses a piece of .o model and his head is half visible this is a glitch i think.
