    There's a missing step at the tutorial that is once you save the players' shortlist at XVI32, you need to add the pls extension in it in order to be loaded at the game.
    Another important issue is that it can only allows you to save a maximum of 200 players in that list.

    Where do you think it failed?

    Maybe a few pointers as to what you are having trouble with would be a good start

    I can help you with The Eejit's tutorial.

    1st - create a shortlist with CM Scout by loading one of your save games.
    2nd - use CM Scout's filter in order to max it up to 200 players.
    3rd - save it into the game's search folder.
    4th - open the XVI32 editor and load the shortlist.
    You should see something like this.




    (The area in red is the section that we need to change. Do not alter anything else).

    5th - replace the 1st offset "04" with "01" and make sure the rest in the red area is changed with "00"
    6th - save your edited shortlist with a new name.
    7th - open the game's search folder and add the extension pls in the file you saved before.
    8th - you're good to go. run the game and load the shortlist. (200 players max.)
    9th - i ran both programs with administrator compatibility. (right-click mouse --> properties --> compatibility)

    Far too complicated Luis!!



    1. Save your CMScout shortlist (Make sure its less than 200 players)
    2. It will default save to Championship Manager 01-02\Search
    3. Download and open Flex, run Go.bat, press Launch and select Shortlist Convertor from the drop down menu)
    4. Select the shortlist you want to use (located in point #2)
    5. Click Start and the program will convert it and exit.
    6. Open the Save Game from CMScout and go to Player and Staff Search
    7. Click on Shortlist > Search > Load and pick the shortlist you wanted to use originally
    8. Viola, the shortlist is now in your Shortlist section
    9. If you want to keep a shortlist you had before, make sure to Save the current one before loading the new one.

    I think disabling UAC while using it sorts a lot of issues

    No necessarily Cam, when managing small nations using Dirty Editor it's ideal to keep all your players together. Typing Niger into Find brings up all the Nigeria players too. It's either that or player with CMScout open the whole time. I like to hide CA and PA and add them all in, then you have to scout them yourself

    But totally agree it can be woefully abused!

    I have followed steps 1 & 2 but when i try step 3 this is what happens.

    I have also disabled the UAC too.

    You haven't read the instructions with the Tool itself, you need to install Java

    You guys gone through every solution in this thread - http://www.champman0102.co.uk/showth...ms-with-Go-BAT


    My feeling is this:

    1. You all haven't given admin rights/unticked read only to the correct programs/files and UAC is still switched on

    2. You have 2 of the worst Anti-virus programs in the world McAfee or Norton/Symantec installed on your new machines cos it's free for a year. They may be free but they are a joke
