    I tried it and it does indeed not work with save files. I got error messages when I tried to open my save file.
    It's good to let people know that.
    You can only use it when you start a new game but you can no longer open ANY save game with the program.

    Yes you can. Just have multiple installs with the setup the same as the save games

    Change the ASCIIs at 009B6A7C, 009B6A54, 009B6A40 and 009B6A2C.

    Open up cm0102 in XVI32 and hit CTRL+G and enter the addresses mentioned above while subtracting -00400000 from them (so 0059B6A7C etc). You can then rename the ASCIIs easily with XVI32's built-in Text -> Hex command in Edit -> Overwrite String. Overwrite any leftover characters from the Managing Director ASCII by entering 00s.

    Yes, good idea of yours . Slight downside is that it can look a bit rubbish in a team's Honours list.

    Yes, going to finalize all of the competition names before tackling them.

    The plan is to update the names in three parts:

    1. Active competitions in active leagues (leagues and cups that are played in the game).
    eg English Premier Division, Italian Cup.

    2. Inactive competitions in active leagues (non-league divisions, defunct/inactive cups).
    eg Italian Serie D, Belgian League Cup.

    3. Inactive competitions in inactive leagues (leagues and cups in inactive leagues).
    eg Mexican First Division, Austrian Cup.

    -

    So part one is done (or an initial attempt at it anyway). All three parts of a competition's name (long, short, acronym) have been updated, but I'm wondering to what extent that has to be done for the next two parts. Basically, what parts of a competition will the player never see, and hence not have to be edited? So far I'm thinking:

    2a. Inactive leagues in active leagues:
    Long: ?
    Short: Find Club, Honours, Player Search
    Acronym: ?

    2b. Inactive cups in active leagues:
    Long: ?
    Short: Honours
    Acronym: ?

    3a. Inactive leagues in inactive leagues:
    Long: ?
    Short: Find Club
    Acronym: ?

    3b. Inactive cups in inactive leagues*:
    Long: ?
    Short: ?
    Acronym: ?

    *Inactive continental cups appear in a club's honours list, so their short names will have to be changed.

    Can anyone think of any other places these where any of these names would appear?

    i think inactive national tournaments (both in active and inactive leagues) are shown nowhere other than editors

    Here's an updated version of the competition renaming plan. It renames all the inactive competitions in active leagues (mostly non-league and defunct cups), as well as a few other changes from the first version. I only changed the short names of these competitions as I don't think their long names appear anywhere in the game. If anyone spots the long names anywhere then let me know.

    Download link: http://www.mediafire.com/download/ee...ename_v1.1.zip

    Instructions:
    1. Download Rename v1.1.zip from above.
    2. Unzip the files.
    3. Copy cm0102.exe into your main Championship Manager folder, overwriting the cm0102.exe file already there.
    4. Copy club_comp.dat, euro.cfg, nat.club.dat and nation.dat into the Data folder in your main Championship Manager folder, overwriting the files already there.

    The new names are again fully compatible with Tapani 2.21.1. Follow the instructions above and then simply patch the cm0102.exe as you normally would. To ensure compatibility I left the Welsh competition names untouched, as the names vary depending upon whether you're using the Tapani patch or not (Welsh Premier Division / English Northern Premier League Premier Division).

    A note of warning regarding the Netherlands name change. The nat_club.dat, nation.dat and euro.cfg files are based on the April 2016 data, which has some new countries added to it. If you use these files on other data sets, eg the .68 database, the game will crash upon loading. The cm0102.exe and club_comp.dat files are still fine to use (they contain all the rest of the competition renaming). You can see how to change Holland to Netherlands manually here if you wish to. Thanks to xeno for alerting me to this.

    Full list of changes:

    Version 1.2 now available here: http://www.mediafire.com/download/ey...ename_v1.2.zip

    The final planned change to competition names: inactive competitions in inactive leagues. Also a few other changes to some names already changed in v1.1 (thanks milo!), full list of changes below.

    1. Download Rename v1.2.zip from above.

    The final planned change will be to award names. There's more award names in the game than competition names so it'll be a little while before that gets released.

    @Ravanelli, it should be possible to write an application that could do that - but I'm not sure the game will accept new names being entered into a save. The last 16 names in each of the three name files are used for human players, so additional names might need to go before them. You can't just edit the names because the game stores names as a number, so if you edit the text then, for example, everyone called John will end up being called Lionel or whatever.
    Then how does the CM Explorer editor work? It allows you to edit names with no issues in CM 01/02 save games. It appears to simply create a new entry in the names DB anytime you edit a name in your save file. Obviously I don't know for sure because I don't know how to actually see the Names DB but in the editor, changing the name of a player does not overwrite the original name in the list of names, it just adds the new name to the list instead.

    it would seem to make sense that the database has the ability to 'add' new names over the course of a save game since you can simply continue adding new managers to the game and give them a unique name each time.

    Question about renaming things, Saturn....

    I've made a World League patch using Brazil... but every time someone gets suspended, the text reads "player X will miss one Brazilian National match". Do you know where that info is stored in the EXE? I'd like to be able to change it via Olly if at all possible

    Gio posted something about that in the Office:

    "MOV BYTE PTR DS:[ESI+50],xx indicates which is the suspensive effect, BL is for international competitions. (Note other competitions. For example, Brazil national comps use No. 6, German cup comps use 0D)."

    I don't really know beyond that.

    I'm going to assume you're using v1.2. Did you copy the club_comp.dat, euro.cfg, nat.club.dat and nation.dat files too?

    That'll be the Netherlands name change - there's warnings about it in post #22.

    Just the club_comp.dat file, not the euro.cfg file.

    My mistake not to clarify whether or not to use the euro.cfg file in post #22, I'll change that now.
