    I have another remark: in England, the stadium capacities are wrong. I think this is because the basic setting for England is that terraces are not allowed and most stadiums in championship and below have terraces. A lot of stadiums thus miss several thousands places in capacity. Sadly I can not change this, because the database is not editable. Could this be fixed in the next patch?

    Hi Dmitri, first of all I want to thank you for all your work. At last I can manage Bosnia and Herzegovina too! That was a big wish of mine! :)
    Secondly, I am currently trying to sell some players but I can't sell anyone for the price they are worth. I don't want to jump to conclusions that this is a fault in the game, but I felt I should write this problem of mine here. Maybe someone got a tip for me :)

    Thanks again!

    Please note! This is a test release. There may be some mistakes in the database.

    This update must be installed on already installed Season 2019 1.4 Patch.

    I'd recommend to try with all latest updates. We did some changes into player wages.

    @Dmitri is there a way to replace default kits or minikits?
    I tried to put kits and minikits with their correct IDs and extensions in the mentioned folder following your tutorials, but with no luck. This method only works for teams with no kits or minikits in art_04.big. So I tried to open art_04.big, but I can't import or export kits or minikits files.
    Any suggestion?

    Here my minikits folder: [​IMG]
    All these minikits are visible in-game, except for Perugia kits (ID 001B0015), maybe because Perugia kits and minikits are already inside art_04.big archive.
    Anyway, I finally managed to extract all kits, minikits, jersey numbers and armbands with universal extractor. Now the problem is: how could I replace existing kits and minikits inside the art_04.big archive if the method you mentionded here doesn't work for kits already in-game?
    Hope I made myself clear.

    Are you sure you used correct image format?
    minikits should be saved as .PNG, while oll other textures (kits, kitarmband, kitnumbers) as .TGA.

    external files have a priority over files in .big.

    Ok, problem solved.
    It seems that save game requires a restart to show kits. This instead is not necessary for clubs that dont' have kits in art_04.big.
    Thanks for your help and for your huge work on this incredible patch!

    Any news on the untucked kit patch? Is it eventually possible to implement this mod on your great patch?
    Thanks again for this masterpiece!

    That's because resource paths are cached; If the game once tries to find some resource on the disk/inside .big, it will save that result path in the cache, and will use it every other time when resource is requested.

    I don't know and I don't have a time to research it. There are many more important tasks and issues.

    Gotta it, thanks for all the explanations.
    Last request, I promise: what is the best way to convert kits for FIFA Manager? What software or batch instructions did you use to convert newer FIFA kits for FIFA Manager?
    Thanks.

    I suppose no chance for a public release, right?
    It would be extremely useful for the users of this mod.

    FIFA Manager PreSeason 2020 v.0.5 is available for download.
    Check the first post for a download link.

    The new, improved Windowed Mode
    Now it's possible to run a game in the window without any restrictions. You can move the window, resize it and freely control it with mouse pointer.
    It's possible to change the initial position of the window - it can be placed at the center, at the top left corner or on the left screen side ("Default" position).
    It's also possible to switch between in-game mouse pointer and Windows mouse pointer.

    Drag&Drop graphics
    Now, when the windowed mode became more enhanced, we can provide a new way to import graphics into the game - just by dragging images into the game's window! It's as simple as it can be - just open a page of player/staff/manager/club/league and drag some image into the window!

    Resource path caching control
    First of all - what is Resource path caching? Most of graphic resources in the game use path caching. And that's how it works: If the game once tries to find some resource on the disk/inside .big, it will save that result path in the cache, and will use it every other time when resource is requested. Now we added an option to disable this caching. So now it's possible to add graphics files to the game and see changes immediately in the game, without a need to restart the game. If you want to use Drag&Drop graphics feature, it's recommended to disable resource path caching.

    Adaptive font size on TV-Popups for different screen resolutions
    This is important for those who play the game on displays with a height lower than 900 pixels. Now all fonts on TV-Popups will be scaled proportionally to screen size. As a result, no more overlarged fonts on TV-Popups.

    Database update 11.08.2019
    A database with latest transfer changes is included. Please note that all changes are made automatically and there may be incorrections in player's history and transfer fee values.

    Other minor fixes and additions
    -Fixed possible game freezes in the 4th season
    -Fixed problems with calendar in Germany
    -An attempt to fix some GfxCore errors
    -Added more historic files
    -Fixed the issue with standings seats count in some German clubs
    -Added some new player pictures
    -The installer of PreSeason now runs on Windows XP

    Really good update!
    Real fixtures are a nice touch and great to see relegation/promotion play-offs in Germany. I hope to see the same treatment in English leagues with real play-offs and cups structures.
    Any chance to see the inclusion of 3D original FIFA stadia and 3D original faces for players in future update?

    Yes it's planned for all European leagues. I'm working on this.
    I don't see a simple way to convert FIFA stadiums and faces into FIFA Manager.

    I mean, is it possible to include FIFA stadiums and faces produced for FIFA 07, 08 and 09 in your next updates? FIFA stadiums for those editions are compatible with FIFA Manager series and most of them are current ground for most clubs. Furthermore, many users here on soccergaming produced new faces for FIFA 10, so maybe with their permission could be interesting to include those faces.

    Another question: is it possible to activate the massive kit modification you adopted in this mod in previous FIFA Manager editions (from 09 edition)? For example, allow the game to read goalkeeper kits in tga version and use a csv file to modify kit paremeters?
    Are you planning to release maybe a sort of plugin planned to do this sort of things?

    Thanks as always for all your explanations. FIFA Manager was one of my favourite game of all time and I almost cried when I saw that this game was not forgotten.
