I'm updating the rosters to put out an updated MLS patch...so I should be done sometime soon

I can definitely help out with this patch as well making kits and other graphics like flags, adboards, gui, etc... for MLS and USL. I've already been patching this for myself and have made a couple kits, namely Chivas USA and Columbus. I've been looking forward for a while to working with Donovan as well.

I see your already here to get involved. I don't know what kits are in this patch.

Khris, please upload it to bigupload, because filefront is a pisser for us here in Brazil.

I've been testing the USL and MLS leagues and both leagues either lock up after the first round of the US Open Cup or after the friendly games in the second season. I've looking at posts to see what the reason might be but haven't found any answer. I'll keep trying to get this corrected.

I probably could figure it out pretty quickly if just somebody sends me the fifa.db. Sometimes the table_teamlookup gets corrupted even in CM, so that could be causeing some problems.

I'm going to PM my e-mail to you.

I did a completley fresh installation of FIFA and run this MLS Patch

Rosters, Kits, Flags = updated (for LA)
whenever I choose to play anything else than a friendly = crash
adboard = still the old ones


maybe I'm doing something wrong :confused:

1. completley fresh FIFA install (no old folders left)
2. load import and save the MLS patch with CM
3. start a new game

MLS / USL 1 Patch updated version

Below is an updated version of the MLS / USL patch. I've tested both leagues and have successfully been able to complete two season in each without a crash.

The main problem was the U.S. Open Cup setup. Originally there were two weeks for the first two rounds but it would crash after the first round or between the first and second season. I changed the format to three weeks between the first two rounds, two weeks for the semi-finals and one week for the final.

Also, there was one MLS player with and two USL players with IDs over 400000 and changed those. The two seasons for each league that didn't crash did have youth players with IDs over 400000 but weren't on any team. What probably also helped was that I charged the contract end year to all that had expired and 2008 to 2009 using DBMaster and Microsoft Excel.

Here is the link to the patch.

Thanks again to all involved in create this patch

How can I be sure everything from previous FIFA version is gone besides the deleting the ones in themy documents folder and the one under programmes ?

Am I missing something here:
1: Clean/Fresh Installation of FIFA & CM
2: Open CM; load FIFA DB, load patch and import it, run the “file builder” and save when exit.
3: Start FIFA

Which mode do I have to choose ?

Roster Updates/Aboards/Kits/Flags are needed, don’t mind about the competitions if that causes the problems.

THANKS for all who worked on the patch.

cool! downloading now

EDIT: I checked out the rosters, they're not updated at all. i'm guessing is that you just made the patch playable in manager mode which is cool too. gj!

Thank you. I thought about and wanted to update the rosters based on who was already in the database but figured its more important to have the leagues and tournaments working first. I wanted to upload this as soon as I got it working for more than at least two seasons so everyone who has been waiting for this can have something to enjoy until the rosters. Khris did mention in a previous post that he is working on the rosters. I'll update the rosters as best as I can in the meantime.

Sounds great Khris. I'm really looking forward to an updated group of players. Theres been quite a bit of activity in both leagues. Thank you for the time and effort you're putting in to this.

Hi,

1. I did a fresh install of FIFA 08
2. Imported MLS patch in CM08
3. Start new tourney then game crashes when trying to play the match.

Since San Jose Earthquakes are not in the game, should I import a separate San Jose cmp file I have first, then import the MLS cmp? The game will play if I import this San Jose cmp only, but of course the rosters are all not updated. Once I import the MLS cmp, the game crashes.

Also, should I "create" or "replace" when importing the cmp in CM08?

Thanks for the hard work.

You know thats a quirk about CM08 that I dont understand... BUT the trick is to make sure that the Quakes are in the League Screen in Tournaments - then refresh the League... This should fix the problem.... Also, if the game is crashing please check the OPEN CUP as the CUP was the one I made with all the USL teams... Just delete those teams - putting it back to what EA originally had if you dont have those teams (USL)... If there are other problems - let me know and I will do a fresh patch with EVERYTHING I had (we) created...thanks

OK, I was able to get the game to play when I made sure San Jose was in the League & Tournament. After playing the first game, the game would crash when trying to complete and get back to the menu.

There were only 3 MLS teams in the US Open Cup - should all teams be removed or should I fill it with teams?

I'm not seeing any USL teams at all anywhere.

Thanks.

First of all, Khris thanks again for another great patch for MLS fans out there. I noticed that Columbus has 31 players and it might be one of the reasons that the patch isn't working.
