CM2 - 2020 Edition + CM9798 Updates for 2021

Post by Cam F »

Not been here in this thread for a while but I see Sir Nick is still up to his usual total awesomeness.

Looking forward to playing this 21/22 version whenever it is ready.

These things can't be rushed but looks a thing of beauty.

The patch to change the colors used for the Italian competitions banner is:

Code: Select all

001113EC: 90 81
001113F1: A2 9D
00112104: 90 81
00112109: A2 9D
00112480: 90 81
00112485: A2 9D
0011285E: 90 81
00112876: A2 9D
00113886: 90 81
0011389E: A2 9D
001143CA: A2 9D
001143E2: 90 81
001144CA: 90 81
This changes it from yellow (90) writing to white (81). And background from purple (A2) to dark blue (9D).

Nice that you are looking into it. But that one broke it.

Patch is fine here - should be impossible for it to break anything if you patched it properly. What do you mean it broke it?

The .exe file wount start. Provides a fancy error message.

Example: 00112109: A2 9D. That value is B6.

Oh I forgot you are doing it with a raw exe and not one patched by cm2year :) yes might not work then! Look around those bytes though and you should find the right one (I move bytes around those areas so might well be wrong place on yours!)

I just checked all my EXEs and that's not the case - it's not B6 even in the original. Just checked the patch too - should work even on an untouched CM2E16.exe.

The offsets are always in Hexadecimal. Going to 112109 in decimal does point you to a byte that is B6. So I think you just patched wrong for some addresses. Always assume offsets are in Hex.

Hi dude

Would it be too much if I ask you for the offset to change the banners of the other competitions? Looks so good.
I would like to put the correct colors to the South American leagues.

Something for your own patch (not as much needed for my 97/98 setup but nice to have there also).

If you could somehow push the "aging" process with 2-3 years I think that would be a very good (mandatory if doable) fix for your 2021 data. Nowadays they play longer then in the 90s, the biggest superstars at the moment is still Messi (34 years) and C.Ronaldo (36 years). Zlatan is from another planet and should not be something adjusted for ;)

In game players from 30 and above decline rappidly first in value and then later in skills (pace, stamina and strenght).

At 30yo the max value of a player in game is 5mill, for a 31yo it's 2.5mill. The intervalls for the skill dropp is 16-12-8-4-1.

this is a very good point - it would be good to include if possible.

It would be go to increase the prize money for the Champions League and the various leagues (particularly the Premier League of course) - not just for the winners but also for each win in the group format and qualifying for the next round. Clearly the amounts have increased massively since 1997.

That is correct, I just wanted to say there has been done something regarding the money/values/price money.
