Tournament and League Structure and Editing Thread

Just wanted to make one thread for all questions concerning editing FIFA 14 tournaments and leagues.

Im really interested in what EA will do with a World Cup game on the pc which would be a first if they make it.

I noticed in the loc the world cup entry's are now using the licensed name and are different than last years loc entry's. Notice these entry's have the correct compobj line in them so its not some online thing. I still think if they add a world cup expansion it will have its own set of compdata tables like Euro did but who knows. What we probably know is the real commentary has been added for the real tournament and for qualifiers so that's a start.

FIFA WC Qualifiers 194333747 TrophyName_Abbr15_991

Yes, World Cup is already licensed in FIFA 14. You will see even some dedicated adboards and stadium "clothes" playing the tournament in career mode :)

Yeah I'm digging thru the bigs now and looking for signs that a real world cup game will be released for pc. I also see they have the real world cup trophy in this years game.

Well, it seems that the structure of the compdata will remain the same.

Last month, I've found a way to "break" the limit of the compobj. For example, French League Cup occupies the lines between 863-921. If you delete this competition (and all related lines in the other txt files) and create competitions that occupies exactly the same number of lines (and between 863-921), it should work in tournament and career modes.

Yeah Baddie actually told me about that last year but it wasn't stable enough where he could put it in his program so I never tried it, plus you can gut all the non euro leagues out and start fresh or rewrite the compobj.

Bottom line is as soon as its released I'm going to install one of the 50 plus tourney templates I have and see if it works.

is there a tutorial to create a new tournament?

fifa 14 has 4 sudamerican Leagues and a copa Libertadores fake tournament. so, i think that create the other teams and modify this fake tournament it should be easy for everyone with a tutorial

Ah new born, congrats man. Yeah I just went through a hectic last few months with getting married and trying to break off from my current job and do my own thing. Now that the smoke has cleared I have a bit more free time.

anybody noticed that the compobj texts from fifa 12 worked in 13? One thing I was gonna test was to get rid of the NT competitions and try to use those extra lines in order to free space for other leagues... Didn't manage to do it due to lack of time but I tested using the 12 texts on 13 and it worked so it would most likely be a doable way to make room for more competitions (provided one disabled the internationals option in cmsettings)
Any thoughts?

Hopefully there is no limit this year but I think its definitely worth a shot, Baddie mentioned it could be done last year but it was buggy. The problem is do you get that crash in season 3 or 4 when a certain International tourney was supposed to be played. There are references to International stuff in the scripts found in Big1 and I believe maybe in the "competitions" table in the db but not completely sure on that.

I would be surprised if the game would remain stable when removing the International competitions but you dont know until you try.

The limit in the compobj is because the option of "Create Tournament". It seems that these ingame option adds the lines to compobj to make this tournament playable.

Makes sense. And somehow when people download content made on creation center the game probably adds the "code" of that content to the texts... Could pave the way for some sort of tool to help those who are unfamiliar to the compdata texts

The biggest tourney you can create in-game is only 32 teams and that doesn't take many lines on the compobj so even if "Create Tournament" is eating into the compobj limit its not the real problem, the limitation itself needs to be broken somehow and maybe Rinaldo can do it now that he is back.

No, bro. The biggest tournament that you can create with "Create Tournament" option is for 64 teams, with group stage and then knockout stage. I think that a tournament with this setup can ocupy the line codes between 1620 to 1710, so here you got the limit of compobj in FIFA 13.

You can try this: add a league in a clean compdata, then go to game and try to create a tournament with 64 teams. The game will crash, because the compdata will reach the limit.

In FIFA 14 compdata, I saw that the compobj reach to 1710 line code, so the limit this year will be around 1800.

I see what your saying, but that limit (17??) has been the same for a couple years now. Me and Reg found it when working on the FIFA Argentina patch for FIFA 12, the last compobj line that year was like 1410 so there was about 300 extra compobj lines in FIFA 2012 including those that would be used by create a tournament. Solving the fact that create a tournament takes up compobj space may be a answer for small patches but for example if your adding the rest of CONCACAF or CONMEBOL along with the real tournaments and real structure then we need to hope they extended the limit so we have room like we did in FIFA 2012.

First, this is not the place to post this. Second, you have made lot of mistakes in your compdata and also, some tournaments are just a copy of my compdata for Fifa-Argentina patch.

Ah, I didn't know that. So, it seems that is possible to modify the limit, because EA did that for FIFA 14 compobj.

PD: What about international tournaments? Supposedly, in the Moddingway Mod they have edited the compdata in order to make full continental cups and qualification to world cup. But they keep their mouths closed, as usual.
