    FM23 Error "Input string is not in the correct format"
    Nevermind, you can open the .html file in VS Code and change all the awaiting treatment to "-" and it will load. Great tool thanks

    Cannot load views. Cannot load Squad view. Tried all fixes and nothing works. Using WTS skin atm.

    Congrats on a very nice and useful tool. It worked quite successfully. The app has seen the face pack. I create tactics, assign roles and quickly get to know the team. Thanks again sir.

    I wonder how you were able to read so much data into the application. :)

    Needs create beautiful things. :)

    Anybody know how to fix this issue?
    "Unhandled exception has occurred in your application. If you click Continue ,the application will ignore this error and attempt to continue. If you click Quit, the application will close immediately.

    Error converting the date, please check the date format in the options"

    EDIT: Found the solution, just got to change the date formal from d/M/yyyy to d/m/yyyy (yep uppercase to lowercase)

    @JoseBourinho56 Thank you soo much for this, it works!

    If you're receiving an error with this for FM23, I have found a fix. It's a bit of a pain.

    Under the "Time Out" column, if it says "Awaiting Treatment" this is causing the error. Save your squad list like you normally would and then open it in Notepad. Press "CTRL+F" and search for "Awaiting Treatment". Replace any lines with a "-". Save the file and open it in the FMLineupTool. This should now work for you. You can also download Notepad++ and search for all lines that say "Awaiting Treatment" and replace them with a "-" symbol. This is a lot quicker than just using normal Notepad.

    hi Veeyron. I tried a number of things to fix it. I think what did it for me was closing the game, deleting the FM Lineup Tool - Own Team view (if that is the one you are using) in Explorer from the Fm22 Views folder. Removing it from within the game too. Then copying it again from the C:\DavyDepuydt\FMLineupTool\Views\FM21\FullFat location to the FM22 views folder. Then relaunch the game and import the view. Hope that works for you and it makes sense!

    (prior to doing the above i deleted the FM Lineup tool completely and re-installed it but that didnt make any difference)

    Hello, a translation planned in French for the software? thanks in advance
  • AndreasBW1978's avatar
    You have to take FM Lineup Tool - Own Team. You have to take the English-Language for the game.

    "Failed to load the export. Make sure you have selected the correct "FM Lineup Tool view" This error is what I get from trying to use the tool in FM22
  • Phildw's avatar
    Seems like this cheat tool is totally useless with FM22 (which is not a bad thing!).
  • DexterHovis's avatar
    Works perfectly well for me on FM22

    Hey! Is this expected not to work on FM22? Upon trying to load my squad, I get an error "Failed to load the export. Make sure you have selected the correct "FM Lineup Tool view" in Football Manager before exporting as a web page."
  • deb10er0's avatar
    I also cannot use this tool with FM22. Can someone write a detailed guide? I already have the html file. But I cannot import the data.
