    97/98 (In process)

    Community

    A few days ago I started to edit a database (year 1998/1999) to make it playable in 1997 (Thanks to Nico + Co the .exe no longer generates an error when starting in that year)

    At the moment I plan to modify the following leagues

    Argentina
    Spain
    Italy
    England
    Germany
    France

    If I can get more materials from other leagues, I will also update them.

    To those who are interested, grateful for their collaboration

    I did most of 9798 for 0001,use the Boah editor, far easier to use than 9798 editor.

    I know that and you are using the 0102 9899 db I spent about a year of my own time creating as a base which I am cool with.

    When I do a db i have 2 pcs on so I can edit one and look at the existing one to compare to.

    Boah is a 9798 editor which is easier to use than cm9798 one, you set it to load the db from your 9798 game folder to compare and take all the ability and individual stats.

    Thanks Cam F! When it is ready, the base will notify you if it is of interest to you. Thanks again for base 98/99 and for the boah data

    Hello. I have a question. I'm trying to create update 1997/98 for cm 01/02. I have CM3 Project starting in 98-99 made by someone (don't remember). With the Nick + Co v204 patch I went back to 1997/98. In the "International Competition" editor tab I removed the world cup 98 won by France. I start the game in July 1997. I'm switching to go on holiday and waiting for groups to be drawn. Now the point is. Why, after the draw, it turns out that World Cup 98 will be played by such tunes as Bahrain, Botswana, Benin, Antigua, Bangladesh, Bahamas and other very weak teams. Only Brazil and Argentina are top. Why is this happening? Where Germany, Italy, Spain etc. I will add that I started the game twice and the same each time.

    Maybe you should try and find out and "remember" before you use their work for something else? Maybe all their effort is worth that tiny bit of effort on your part?

    Unfortunately that happens because there's no qualifiers for it to base it on or anything (as the qualifying years have never run) - so the game just has to bring in whatever teams it can. Unfortunately it tries to do that in alphabetical order (hence all the A's and B's). It's an absolute pain even to get the game to run in 1997 (and only recent versions of my patcher enable it - as you found) - but that is one bit I haven't tried to fix yet. But may well look into.

    As per the above Rodry is doing the same thing (making a 1997 update out of 1998) - you may want to team up.

    Thank you Nick. Now I know why this is happening. I respect the work of every patcher here . I wasn't sure if this version was created by Gio or Cam. Sometimes it's better not to shoot because it could be a disrespect. Thanks one more time and greetings.

    @rapski: You may want to use the version I gave rodry as a starting point: https://nic.hopto.org/open/cm0102/1997.zip <--- that's the 1998 version but with the exe set to 1997 and the histories corrected.

    I'm looking into fixing how the world cup looks (the code that puts them in in alphabetical order is at: 0092F2C7 for those that are interested). I'm going to try and make the loop check the nation's reputation (held at +7f in memory) and only add those in with a high rep. Will see how that looks!

    Would it be possible to re-write the qualification results, and then point to the qualy group standings to select the teams in the finals? Is that not what the standard game does?

    @Alan: Yep, but that would be a real pain in the a$$ (as right now, the 1997 exe isn't even referencing any qualification results) - it's normally a lot easier to tack something on than try and crowbar something into the normal code. For example, with just this bit of code:
    Code:
    CALL 0053B3D0
    CMP BYTE PTR DS:[EAX+7F],A     <---- Checks if the nation's reputation is 10 or more
    JGE 0092F30D
    ADD ESP,4
    DEC DWORD PTR SS:[ESP+14]
    JMP 0092F321
    I can make it produce:


    Which is good enough I think

    EDIT: Then as we are only doing this really for the backdated versions, like 1997, you could always drop some countries down a notch to reputation 9 in the editor if you wanted to exclude them and include others (i.e. for purely alphabetical reasons Spain is still not getting included!). Or you/I could expand the patch and exclude/include some/all.

    EDIT2: The new version uploaded to: https://nic.hopto.org/open/cm0102/1997.zip has this patch applied now.

    Great thing. Now the composition of world cup 98 looks really great.
    There are practically all football powers Nick, is it possible for France to host the World Cup in 98 instead of Korea and Japan?

    This is a great job, only individual prizes in the 2000/2001 season are not awarded, and it's a pity that there is no limit on foreigners in the English and Italian leagues, your patcher attaches an antivirus to me and I can't enter the code you gave me, you could still make these changes until 1997. Greetings

    Guys I would just say thank you to Nick and not just ask for constant new things once he has done one thing.

    To have historical exes is something I dreamt of for years, just be super grateful you have a working exe for 97 to start with, not Nick-pick (aha).

    your patcher attaches an antivirus to me
    Then turn off you antivirus - the patcher is fine and your antivirus must be dumb

    you could still make these changes until 1997
    Did Italy have restriction on foreign players in 1997? Looking at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serie_A#Non-EU_players it sounds like there weren't any restrictions (not until 2003)?

    You're right, I was suggesting cm98/99- max 3 non-Eu players in the match squad I'm sorry for my mistake. The antivirus seems to be good Never mind that. Thank you again

    @Danek: It's because when the editor asked do you want to verify/fix the data on start up - you selected yes. That deletes the histories. Click No on start up of the editor.
