There are new gens too
are there actually new gens? I always assumed that every new player was a regen of someone.... there are what 100,000 players and staff in the DB or something?
Hi everyone.Wasn't sure where to post this.Did a little searching in the forum but coulsn't find anything.So: How do you find regens of great players (e.g. the next Totti,Shevchenko etc)?I search every club in the former star's country.
Is there an easier way?Thanks
Can't get GFP3 to work,got CM Scout.Thank you
GPF3 never worked for me either, GPF2 works a treat
I know how to spot them, but I didn't load GPF2 on this occasion so I tried to do it the old fashioned way.... and failed. So I'll open it up to you lot!
Wolfsburg- bought a highly rated DL/C called Nordine Barbier, as you can see from the 2nd screenie he started at game start with Rennes, so I assumed he was a real player.
KAA Gent- Started a new save, thought I'd check out Barbier at Rennes and see if I could poach him. So just typed his name in search and got nothing, odd, went to Rennes in case I had spelt his name wrong and again, nothing, no such player
So thinks I, he must have been a regen, but hang on, he was in the game from the start, 2010/11 season as you can see.
So I search my current Gent save for similar players, I note down his flair, bravery and balance, search for French DL/Cs that match and I only get one, bingo!! or so I thought...
The only match is one Chris Mavinga who is only 23yo at game start, a quick reload of my Wolfsburg save confirms that Mavinga is still in the game at 32 years of age, the same time as Nordine Barbier....
So where does this leave me, I'm not particularly bothered about signing him anyway as he wasn't that good, but this mystery has me wanting to find him!!
Bravery can change can't it? I always thought it was flair and balance that didn't. Are both games using the same update as well?
Yes same update, did another search after you said about bravery but didn't bring up any new contenders.
Any French DLCs set to retire in the first season, or did retire due to injury? Checking the static attributes doesn't mean a great deal as the original player may have not had any values set for these in the first place.
Does the game just generate some random players at the start of every new save game? Possibly one of these?
Check his PA using CMscout then load a new game and check to see if it matches anyone (obviously this wont work if the player has negative PA set in the editor). Which update is this from?
Last update. I will do some more digging and see what I find. I'm not at home so can't check properly, I'll have a look when I get back.
Probably a new gen created at game start. What database side did you use?
Think I've found him, I ran CM scout on my current Gent save and searched for French DL/Cs with flair and balance stats that match, obviously Mavinga showed up as I had already found him in game, but another showed up, a 17yo (same age as Barbier was in Wolfsburg save when I first spotted him) called Eric Massoni, only this one is at Lyon:
Ok, so on my current Gent save I ran GPF2 from the first instant of the save so if he is a regen he should show up when I search his name, but he doesn't
What database sizes are you using?
And what leagues loaded?
Is it just Belgium in the Gent save.
If you are only on medium size database it may not be loading all players.
Max database, all main Euro leagues loaded plus Brazil and Argentina.
wonder if i can get this to work on my mac?
Apologies if this is stickied somewhere but if it is I can't find it.
Is it Aggression, Balance, Bravery, and Flair that remain the same when a player regen's?
Checking here with GPF2 that seems to be the case. Any hidden stats remain the same? Does Dirtyness ever change? All my regens seem to have the same dirtyness as they have in the database.
Also, if a player has a 0 for Flair and gets a 10 rolled on initial creation does that mean it's a 10 forever more, or when he regens does it re use the zero and re-roll a random Flair?
P.S. I should add that I play 3.9.68 ODB (with some player fixes by me)
