  1. This game works with the NON-UPDATED version of the game - please select ‘Football Manger 2023 Database’. The major problem with modern-day football is the disparity in wealth, thus ruining the game’s competitiveness. This game is an attempt to level that! Finances The majority of clubs in Europe all stop outside takeovers by rich owners and are member-owned. Club finances are also adjusted, with smaller clubs and less reputable boosted, while the super club’s finances have been attempted to be limited (although this is easier said than done). Television money across all European League, including lower divisions are all at similar levels. So the top teams do not continually get stronger than the lower divisional teams. League Structures Changes Scotland - New system going down to 7 tiers; with bigger divisions, including the SPL which has 16 teams. Ireland - New 3-tiered league system. The top division has 16 teams. Wales - Welsh sides in the English league system (Cardiff, Wrexham, Swansea, Newport County & Merthyr Town) now compete in the Welsh league and represent Wales in Europe. England - The same, minus Welsh teams - but Premier League sides do not take part in the league cup due to the size of the Premier League & Regional Cup competitions (see below) Continental Competitions The game is designed to use 'Appy 'Ammers 80s European Cup Competitions (https://community.sigames.com/forums/topic/574073-80s-style-european-competitions/) This sees the return of the Cup Winners Cup and UEFA Cup (including two-legged final), only league champions entering the European Cup (Champions League). I have merged his competitions with the Level Playing Field Data. This also sees the return of the away goals rule. The game would work with the in-built European Competition, however, this might see a lot of games, particularly with Regional Cup competitions (see below). Regional Cups I have also set up Regional European Competitions, which are straight knockout, but have Extra Time (with silver goal) and penalties - no away goals. These are grouped by geographical location and run every year. They include teams from the top division of every UEFA nation. Anglo-Celtic Cup - Scotland, Ireland, Wales, England & Northern Ireland Balkans Cup (old Yugoslav Cup) - Serbia, Croatia, Albania, North Macedonia, Kosovo, Montenegro, Slovenia & Bosnia and Herzegovina Central European Cup - Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland & Luxembourg Eastern European Cup (old Soviet Cup) - Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Estonia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Latin, Lithuania, Moldova, Russia & Ukraine Nordic Cup - Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Faroe Islands & Iceland Southern European Cup - Italy, Turkey, Greece, Cyprus, Romania, Hungary, Bulgaria, Israel, Malta & San Marino Western European Cup - Belgium, Netherlands, France, Spain, Portugal, Andorra & Gibraltar International Competitions I have used Rusty’s 40-team World Cup file and Copa America Nations League (https://community.sigames.com/forums/topic/570079-fm234-40-team-world-cup/)and added the Level Playing Field Data. I have made a couple of tweaks; Making the Olympics a tournament that does not just use youth players but full international squads, in a straight knockout tournament, where over 220 teams compete every 4 years to try to win an Olympic Gold Medal. In addition, the Confederations Cup is also brought back; held every four years and with 8 teams participating (Winners of the World Cup, Gold Cup, Copa America, Euros, African Cup of Nations, Asian Cup, OFC Cup and the Olympic winners). Testing The big clubs are hard to limit. Particularly in the early years of this game. I have kept their debts with high repayments and taken away their vast other incomes each other and taken away the rich owners. However, their existing structures and personnel mean they are still very strong. I have tested the game for a 50-year save and have no issues with the game running. There have been some encouraging results… In Scotland; Inverness and Falkirk have won the SPL . While, Cove Rangers, Dundee Utd, Falkirk, Motherwell, Queen of the South and Aberdeen have all broken the old firm dominance and won the Scottish Cup. While St Mirren, Hibs, Ayr United, Ross County, Peterhead, Hearts, Arbroath, Aberdeen, Falkirk and Dundee Utd have also denied the old firm to win the league cup. In England and the Premier League; City have remained dominant, but Arsenal, Liverpool and Chelsea did break the dominance on occasion, and when we get into the early 2050s, Bournemouth won the Premier League two years running and Everton won it the year after. Bournemouth also won the FA Cup, Villa also prevailed but has been largely the ‘top 6’ that win it. However, Barnsley, Bolton and Kings Lynn town (who also made it to the Premier League) made the final. In France, the most competitive league on the save saw PSG dominate the early years, but have not won or come in the top three of Ligue 1 for 15 years!! Teams like Nimes, Chateuroux, Lorient, Brest and Saint Etienne have all won it. Bayern does dominate Germany, but Dortmund, Koln and Ingolstadt have won it with several other teams making up the top 3. In Italy, Empoli, Pescara and Venzeia have taken the title, while the rest is shared between Juve, Roma, Napoli and the two Milan sides. Spain is similar the top 2 sides do continue to win the league, however, Osasuna and Athletic Bilbao both did three league titles in a row, Getafe won 3 titles in 5 years. While Villarreal, Cadiz, and Espanyol have also won leagues and finished regularly in the top 3. Other leagues have seen periods of dominance by sides but have a good mix of winners and different teams competing in both league and cup. In Europe the top nations continue to do well but with one team qualifying for the European Cup it has seen winners like Pescara, Athletic Bilbao and Bournemouth become champions of Europe. Internationally the bigger sides continue to win and go deep in tournaments, however, Scotland, Senegal, Mexico, Switzerland and Venezuela have won continental or international tournaments. <Link removed by moderator> Copy and select all files when loading a new game.

  3. No I was going to do it, and thought I’d check before investing the time in case there was something like that already. Looking at FM22 definitely a lot of Scottish league revamps.
  4. Hi, Wondering if anyone knows and can direct me any Editor data file that has revamped the Welsh league that includes the Welsh sides in the English system (Swansea, Cardiff, Wrexham etc) And on a similar note a revamped Scottish league system with an increased Premier Division?
  5. Hi, I have not really played football manager for a few years, I had like to play an edited file, but with hard-coding issues, particularly around European Competitions in recent games I have been turned off slightly. Do you know if FM 23 will have any drastic changes to the editor making it easier to change international and European club competitions? I have looked online to see the new features etc, but there is nothing about the editor. Which I am afraid will mean they have not changed it really.
  6. This is amazing idea. Just wondered if you have or even considered a global Nations League tournament or even super cup (Winners Nations League Tournaments)? Also can you play this with your 40 World Cup Team file? In terms of non-international files, could you play the two aforementioned files with say a European Club Cup competitions also?
  7. I have seen this on other forum posts about wrong number of teams qualified glitch, when testing Advanced Rules, despite ?everything being correct. I have seen some other posts about potential fixes, but nothing definitive, does anyone know how to fix this annoying glitch?
