[TUTORIAL] How to link or create reserve B team ?

Post by Xeno »

How to create reserve/B team if there is not or how to link reserve/B team if there is in database updates :

The process to create B team is below , taken from this link: https://champman0102.co.uk/showthread.php?t=4804

1. I'm using VfB Leipzig as an example to break the link. You can replace another primary A team and their B team with RB Leipzig in order to have the re-link between clubs.
Important Note: The team which you want to break the link has to have the same length name or a longer name than your new team long name which you are re-linking.

Actually there are VfB Leipzig B in 3.9.68 and ODB , they are linked , but your Leipzig is current updated named one in new databse updates, RB Leipzig and RB Leipzig II.
[9D04A8] = VfB Leipzig
[9D04AC] = VfB Leipzig Amateure (and VfB Leipzig II )

Instead of VfB Leipzig , you can use another defunct club with B team you dont care . But, you better choose a club from same nation as these clubs may be used in some special functions in exe coding such as Basque restriction or etc.
List of all hardcoded clubs are in this link : -----> viewtopic.php?p=22961#p22961

[9D04A8] = VfB Leipzig --------> you need to change to RB Leipzig
[9D04Ac] = VfB Leipzig Amateure (and VfB Leipzig II ) --------> you need to change to RB Leipzig II

All you are doing is essentially switching 2 unlinked teams in the DB ( RB Leipzig and RB Leipzig II) with 2 linked clubs (like VfB Leipzig for example).... you aren't actually swapping the team, you are simply editing the code that shows that the teams are linked in an A & B team way..... you're telling the game to link RB Leipzig A & B instead of VfB Leipzig A & B.... you aren't swapping players, stadiums, coaches, or anything like that.

2. Important Note: You'll need to add the B team into the database if it isn't there already. Both primary A team and B team which you will re-link shall be in database. If not, you need to create primary A team and/or its B team in database by using cm0102ed CM0102 editor. Then , you will use these A team and B team for linking with below sample process.

3. Important Note: Primary A team squad and B team squad limit is max 25 players each in database, totally max 50.
You need to go to the CM0102 editor. You will see that you have got players in A team, and probably none in B team. Go to the squad tap at A team. All players you want to be in A team, give them SENIOR SQUAD. Those you want in B team, change their squad from A team to B team AND give them SENIOR SQUAD.
Important Note: Please remember. When you have two teams linked and players have status RESERVE SQUAD, they will not show up in your squad view in the game.

4. Open your cm0102.exe in HEX editor XVI32 and follow these steps. Press File->Open
5. Select the cm0102.exe file in your main CM folder.
6. Wait until it has finished loading
7. Press ctrl+F in order to start a search
8. Type "Leipzig"
9. Make sure the "Case sensitive" box is unmarked.
10. Press Enter.
11. VfB Leipzig will appear 5 times in the cm0102.exe file. Note: Some team names may appear 4 or more.

12. Once you get to the desired location, go to Edit > Overwrite string > click the Text string radio button and type in the new name - making sure it is not longer than the existing name. Then click 'Text -> Hex', then add 00 onto the end of the hex values (this signifies the end of the text).
Change ALL FOUR VfB Leipzig primary & B teams names to the new teams names ( VfB Leipzig would become RB Leipzig , VfB Leipzig B would become your RB Leipzig II ). Use the full long names as they appear in the database.
Important Note: Both primary A team and B team which you will re-link shall be in database. If not, you need to create A team and/or its B team in database by using cm0102ed .

-The B team name with underline instead of spaces and with all big letters >>> VFB_LEIPZIG_AMATEURE --------> change to RB_LEIPZIG_II
-The primary team name with underline instead of spaces and with all big letters >>> VFB_LEIPZIG --------> change to RB_LEIPZIG
-The B team name without underline with spaces >>> VfB Leipzig Amateure --------> change to RB Leipzig II
-The B team name without underline with spaces >>> VfB Leipzig II --------> change to RB Leipzig II
-The primary team name without underline with spaces >>> VfB Leipzig --------> change to RB Leipzig

13. Remember to keep the underlines instead of spaces where needed.
14. If your primary A & B teams names are shorter than VfB Leipzig's name, insert 00 instead of the extra letters in the left box (the one full of numbers). You will notice that every time you enter 00 , it creates a blank space on the side with text.
15. After you changed the names press File->Save
16. Overwrite the cm0102.exe file
17. Now, the database where your new linked teams are in and the CM exe which you patched are pair so that they shall be matched&used together.

18. Important Note (additional patch): Teams that have B teams only have 48 players taken from the database by default. This below patch fixes that to the normal 50 players you would get with a reserve team.
But still Primary A team squad and B team squad limit is max 25 players each in database , totally 50. You can apply below change into your CM exe via Apply a Misc Patch option of Nick's patcher.

APPLYMISCPATCH: "Misc Patches/BTeamsIncreaseTo50Players.patch"

Code: Select all

00141F08: 30 32
00141F16: 30 32
19. Important Note(additional patch): If you want B teams in countries other than Spain, Portugal & Germany apply this below patch into your CM exe via Apply Patchfile option of Nick's patcher. Otherwise, game will not support B teams out of these countries.

Code: Select all

0x140b00 0x74 0xeb
20. Start a new game so the changes will take effect (it won't affect previous saved games).
Important Note: Please note that you can not manage B teams like your reserve team, and I think you shall not.
