A new update, a new patch.

What is this?
This is a patch which combines the most recent release from the Update team with the latest discoveries from the Patches forum. It incorporates the October 2017 update, Tapani's 2.22 patch, the latest renaming patch, and other smaller things from the Patches forum like the restructuring of certain leagues.

In short, it's a patch that is designed to make the game as realistic as possible for 2017.






Firstly, thanks to dandino, CMAdventurer, Alcoolix, gazza8 for testing the patch's stability and to martinho, Redknapp69, barfly14 and vandeman for some detailed feedback on the game's finances. Thanks to the villan and fairedinkum for information about many leagues' prize & TV money IRL, and to Sahan for the same information regarding Turkey.

*Norway: Transfer window messages are shown twice, due to Sweden also using Norway's code.
*Retirements: players set to retire in the player_setup.cfg file will retire immediately instead of on the date listed. (You can safely remove those lines in the player_setup.cfg if you wish - I have removed most of the major ones from this version (Buffon, Pirlo etc.)
*Scottish First Division playoffs are not the real life version, they are just what was laying dormant in the exe.
