    Tools > Validate Database may sort the error

    Tools > Data Distribution Wizard will allow you export the data so you have a back up each time you make some changes. That way if you've done something that can't be undone you only lose work back to the last backup

    Thanks for the response Dermotron.

    Another stupid question so I apologise....where can I find "Tools>Data Distribution Wizard". I am using the Wasano editor by the way.

    Also the data files that I back-up are all .DAT files. What program do I use to open up these files - unless I'm not supposed to do so.

    Cheers

    The advice I gave is when using cm0102ed.exe that comes with the game. Try using that to see if corrects the error

    Question for the update team

    A lot of time and effort is dedicated to scouting and updating the database and release the season updates.

    My question is: does the update team ever use the Football Manager database to check the squads and player ratings? Wouldn't it make the updating a lot more quicker?

    I know when I updated I used it.

    I also know some of the patch guys created extraction tools from FM>CM - although I am not sure that ever kicked off

    I think the option to extract directly from it stopped in FM2013

    Waiting for FM to come out to then release and then release an update in what would all likely be December (last FM was November release idb) doesn't seem much fun for anyone, either updaters or users. By the time it would be out it would the January window would be open so there would be little or no play of the DB we'd have released.

    In an ideal world we'd have enough bodies to help us get a Data Update 3 weeks after the window closes.

    It would still be very handy if we could map the player attributes for those nations we have no-one specifically for though, otherwise you are still doing things player by player so there is no major benefit other than less 0's

    An extraction tool would be brilliant!

    But even just checking the FM database by hand, as it where, could be helpful. I remember reading on the Facebook page of the update team a call for help to Brazilian fans to update the Brazilian league (for example.) Couldn't this work be done simply by using the FM database as reference? But perhaps the update team is lacking on help even to do that? Or maybe I'm missing something...

    If you like at the link, quick links, view site leaders you will see the team, Coaches are updates IIRC

    There is around 15, which BTW is the most I think I have ever seen. Its simply getting numbers in and to actually update

    Thankfully bruebous is now updating Brazil

    I'm sure some of the guys do use it, using any source available is always welcomed.

    The attributes aren't exact match though are they? There are some extra's in FM. Just a question, not stating it being an issue.

    Thanks for the reply Dermo.

    I see what you mean regarding the release dates! Makes sense...

    Thanks for the clarifications.

    And once again I would like to state that the update team does a phenomenal job every season!

    djole mentioned there was a save game extractor available, that could make things a bit handier.

    Help with September 2009 Update

    I want to play the September 2009 update but I cannot figure out how to do it. It isn't the same sort of file as the 2015 one, it's a .rar file? I'm totally bamboozled.

    Install a program that opens rar files like IZarc, WinRar etc.

    Bit late Fods, I uploaded that late last year after finding it at home on a CM magazine disk and Derm kindly added it to downloads here - http://www.champman0102.co.uk/downlo...do=file&id=214

    Now if I could only be arsed sorting the histories would be cool save to play.

    very easy

    open the official editor (as administrator), validate twice, create a new club, set a name, england as nation and a lower division as division.

    update whatever you want (stadium, attendance, colors, etc.)

    go to club competitions tab, select the league where you want your club to play, choose a club you want yours to be swapped with and swap.

    your club will be in that division and the other one in a lower division.

    save, validate and save again
