It is certainly possible to do such things with the weights. For example, you can sum up all the weights required for a role e.g.
  • Poacher: 12.875
  • Advanced Forward: 18.125
  • Complete Forward (Attack): 22.625

Hey @CAE and well done for your work!!
I sum up all the weights required for a poacher and I get different numbers from you. How is tha possible? You do something different?

Poacher Role Weights:
  • Finishing: 8.0
  • First Touch: 6.0
  • Heading: 6.0
  • Technique: 4.0
  • Anticipation: 5.0
  • Composure: 6.0
  • Decisions: 5.0
  • Off The Ball: 6.0
  • Acceleration: 10.0

    So:
    8 + 6 + 6 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 5 + 6 + 10 = 56

    Another thing you can do, is work out the total attribute points for each role (attribute value x weight). Then divide by the total weight for the role (as above). This gives you an average attribute value for that role (similar to the star rating in the game). Cavani for example:
    • Poacher: 14.65 (3.5 Stars in game)
    • Advanced Forward: 13.91 (3 Stars)
    • Complete Forward (Attack): 14.22 (3 stars)

    Give us an example how we measure it please.
Hi Dzek,

You're right, in the original version posted a couple of weeks ago, I'd manually extracted all the weights using the IGE (spending hours doing so!). I then discovered the weights were actually in the FM21 pre-game editor (they haven't been before!). Doh!

So I updated the article with the 'official' weights from the editor. Mine were not actually that far off (apart from a constant scaling factor).

So your Poacher calculation looks correct with the new weights. We are going to add a role rating in the New Year but in the meantime you can work it out yourself.

Multiply the player attribute value with the weights

e.g.

Finishing: 8.0 x 16
First Touch: 6.0 x 12
Heading: 6.0 x 11
Technique: 4.0 x 11
Anticipation: 5.0 x 9
Composure: 6.0 x 13
Decisions: 5.0 x 12
Off The Ball: 6.0 x 12
Acceleration: 10.0 x 17

Then add all of these up and divide by 56 to give you the weighted average value for that role.

@stephen

Are you using english language?
Are you playing FM21?
What browser are you using?

Could you send me via DM the .html exported from the game using the screenview? You'll need to put in a .zip to send via a message.

Do you use english language in game?

If yes, and it doesn't work, have you exported the squad view in .html? Could you send to me as per the message above?

Thanks,

CAE
when i downloaded it i got the current ability in the game as i saved it
First of all, great work!
I do however have a problem using the view needed for the calculator tool. Whenever i try importing the view it gives me an error message "This view in file "All attributes ´(FM Scout)" is not valid for the current panel".
Have I done something wrong and what can I do to fix it?
I do run the game on Mac btw, if that has something to do with it

What version are you playing? The hosted file is for FM21 only. Some other Scout members have kindly made versions for FM19 and FM21 Touch which we’ll be putting online soon.
Okay that explains it, I opted for the cheaper option and went with touch this year. Any idea when it'll be online?
Hey CAE !
I can't find the Genie Scout's ratings file you created. Where I can find and download it?

Thanks for your comments!

The tool simply accepts an HTML document so if it's in the same format then I don't see why it won't work. I'll send you a FM21 HTML file so you can see the order.

However, there is no saying the weights are the same as FM21 (but I imagine they are similar).

For calibration purposes, would you mind sending a screenshot of the CA199 defender?

would it work for fm20 ?
@Dzek - have added now!

@coolestrock - will try and make a FM20 squad view tomorrow.
