Problem importing national kits


Youth Team
Hello all ... looking for a bit of support/advice here.

I have installed mrliioadin's awesome 222 national teams patch on a fresh copy of my FIFA 09/data folder, and everything works out fine. After testing that, I started importing national team kits to overwrite the generics in mrliioadin's patch. I was doing it in batches, and got about halfway done and still had the game running properly.

While doing this, I had CM09 set to automatically choose which zdata to import files to, and everything was winding up in zdata_49 or zdata_50. Eventually I got close to having 500 files in zdata_50, so I used FM09 to create zdata_51, imported the next batch of kits into that zdata with CM09, regenerated FAT and BH files, and tried to run the game. It crashed right away.

This has happened several times when I've tried on my own to add a zdata file through FM09, and I get the same result when I just continue to dump files into zdata_50 after I reach the 500 file limit. I'm sure there's something I'm doing wrong, but I'm at a loss here.

Can someone please explain to me exactly what needs to be done to create a new zdata file beyond zdata_50 and still get the game to run? Thanks in advance for any help or advice!
