Season 1994/ 1995 update

Post by Franz Ferdinand »

Some years ago I have worked actively on a update for the season 1994/ 1995. In recent years I didn't have enough courage and time to continue working on it. In recent weeks though, I have decided to work on my database again. Currently i am focussing on improving player attributes. The players in my database should be more effective and currently I am reviewing the players with the highest PA's. Soon, I would like to share my database again with you all as I used to do in the previous forum.

Besides improving player attributes, I feel I could improve the playability of my database as well by adding more players to lower leagues or leagues I didn't have time to focus on yet (Australia, Japan, South Korea, Rep of Ireland etc.). Currently I don't have the time to work on that but I hope after downloading a beta version of my database I will find some enthousiastic 'colleagues' to help me out :D

Some spoilers;

To be continued soon!

Currently, I am reviewing the player stats from the Dutch league. Some players are overrated and need a decrease of their attributes and some don't have any stats at all. My aim is to create a balanced game with realistic players. I hope to finish the Dutch league this week so I can move on to the next league ;)

I am updating player stats of the French 1st division teams at the moment. Besides, I am completing the squads from the 2nd division teams. These teams weren't up-to-date at all. The National league (another 20 teams) will be postponed till a later moment. My focus for now will be on the 1st two leagues.

Doing a major review of the top 700 players (based on PA) in the database at the moment. All of these top players will have fixed attributes now.

Here some screenshots of golden oldies ;)

My plan is to release a few save games first so you can have a look at the data entered so far and comment. One by one leagues will be finalized and once done i am happy to share the whole database.

In the first save game that i will release you will be able to manage a Italian team in Serie A or B, the most famous competition in 1994 worldwide. i am not sure if i will add the full squads from Serie C teams at this moment but they might be added in a later stage depending on available information online. Player stats from Serie A and B teams are being checked at the moment as well as formations from managers etc. As soon as I am ready, the saved game will be uploaded here!

Always look forward to trying out new retro updates so good luck with this.

One question though, don't want to sound like a criticism, but is it just me or do a lot of those player attributes look quite poor? As in quite low.

I could help you with all Spanish La Liga teams if you want. I’m former Assistant Researcher of Spain in Football Manager (for about ten years), and I like 90s more than any other ages. Also Real Zaragoza (my team) won Cup Winners’ Cup in 94/95 season.

In general, player attributes in my database are a bit different from the players in the usual data updates in this forum. I don't remember all the players strenghts from players in the 90's so i use some online resources to fill in the attributes. For the CA related attributes i am trying to optimalize players' intrinsic value as much as possible. My main goal is focus on player strenghts rather than putting high attributes all over the place so that they perform in a more realistic way. Obviously there is always room for discussion about player attributes as my sources might also not be accurate. 😉

The players in my database have lower CA/PA's but that does not necissarily make them weaker i believe.

What sources are you using? I have listed the primary sources that I have used to build the 2004 database here, but always happy to learn of alternatives which may be more useful.

Usually i google a player and add 'pes stats' behind. Pes stats are quite similar to cm. A pes value of 80 is 10 in my database. A pes value of 60 or less 1 in my db and a pes value between 95 and 100 is 20 in my db. Furthermore i look for their strongest points and try to reflect that as well. Usually these strongest points are ca related

Divide the PES value by 5 to get the CM value :)

That's a great approach. It makes it a lot more realistic if a forward is actually a forward and not some player that, according to their attribute values, could play anywhere. Screenshots look very good.
