- Both files in the archive must be activated before you start the game, they are not independent.
- You should tick "add players to teams" at the beginning of the game, for lower league clubs.

    This is great, thank you.

    Where can I download the logo pack for the teams?

    Thanks

    I've downloaded everything and merged all of the created data. However, the continental leagues do not show up in the game. Has anyone else run across this? And, is there a solution?
  • Lloydy21's avatar
    How do I make this run in the game. I've downloaded it, but i'm struggling to use it within the game. I'm using a Mac by the way. Thanks

    Do you plan on uploading the logos for the teams you've added

    Any chance someone has created something similar for the Welsh league? Boosted transfer/wage values etc?
