A new version of CM 14 is available. It includes the fixing of some bugs, mainly in the management of competitions. See the history of the help file for a full list of the changes.
Patch for adding new leagues in career mode
FIFA 14 has some limitations about the possibility to expand a career with more leagues and more Countries.
A major limitation is that, when you add a league using a new id that was not present in the original game, the game crashes when you select that league for your career.
In the FIFA 14 Patches section you can find a solution for this problem: download the patch and follow the instructions written in the “read me” file.

CM 14.0 Released
Finally... here we go! The first Release of CM 14 is available for download. Thanks to all the beta testers that contributed to the improvement of the tool.
The competition system has been tested intensively and it works, I have been able to add al the leagues of South America, modify the Copa Libertadores and add The Copa Sudamericana and everything works fine but read the "known problems" section at the end of the help file to know the limitations that are currently present. Nevertheless the editing of a new competition is quite complicate so backup your files in the compdata folder before you start playing with the competition systems!
If you have already worked with a Beta version you will find some new features: an "Open Recent" command for reopeining quickly the FIFA environment you worked with the last time, a new way for creating flags from scratch, the possibility to increase or decrease the years of contract for all the players of a team
The development is not over, for example I am working to add the possibility to modify player audio but I am still trying to figure out what is possible to do and what is not. Anyway, new CM 14 versions are still to come. In the meantime enjoy CM 14.0 and have fun !

Kit Design Master
There is a new tool available in the download section the Kit Design Master. It is a simple tool for Kit editing. There are a lot of nice tools for image editing like Paint, Gimp etc. so I didn’t want to make yet another general purpose image editor. I just wanted to implement a couple of special features that you cannot find in any standard image editor. Have you seen the kits used by the creation center for creating kits ? They are kits with red – green – blue colors that the game transforms in colored kits according to the colors of the team. Let me call them “Generic RGB” kits. The goal of KDM is to transform any kit into a “Generic RGB” kit and then reuse a “Generic RGB” kit for creating a kit with the desired colors. Enjoy!

CM 14 Beta 5
OK guys. It seems that I have introduced a couple of major bugs in Beta 4 ... sorry, it happens. So I have released a quick fix in this Beta 5 so you don't need to move back to Beta 3.
CM 14 Beta 5 is now available in the download section. When you decide to use a Beta version you are sure you are using a software with bugs, so be careful and make a backup of your original FIFA 14. In the help file you can find a list of the bugs fixed (hopefully). If you are not an expert editor I strongly recommend to wait for the release version and not to play with a beta. Please do not write to me if you find bugs but visit this thread and leave your comments there.
Beta 4 version should be the last Beta before the official Release.

Career with new leagues in FIFA 14
Debugging CM14 I discovered something interesting in FIFA 14. I don't know if this was already known by the Community, anyway this is the behaviour I have seen:
It is possible to play a career only if the League has one of the ids of the leagues present in the original version of FIFA 14, if I use a different id, I can simulate the League in career mode but not to play it. Instead in tournament mode there is not any limitation.
This means that it will be possible to make Patches wih several new leagues (I actually don't know how many) but if I want to play a League I have to switch its id with an original League that I don't care to play. Overall it doesn't seem a bad news.

I want to thank all the guys that wrote me, so far I have rceived about 40 candidates for beta testing, honestly too many :-). Anyway I will not release anything before the end of this week, probably on Sunday. Before that day I will make a decision if to make the beta version public or not.. In the mean time I just want to thank all of you.
Progress on CM 14
I am also very pleased to announce that Outsider87 will join me in the development of Fifa Master tools. I know Fabio from a long time and I appreciated his help in the past as one of the most valuable tester I ever had. I am sure that he will be very helpful also as a software developer.

About EASF compression
If you started to use DB Master you see that files in the datax.big file are compressed with a new algorithm: namely EASF. At the moment I have not been able to figure out how it works so it is not possible to see those files (including many .lua files) but I am pretty sure that they are the same as FIFA 13 files because the size is the same. You can add your own .lua files in the proper subfolder of FIFA 14 and regenerate and they will replace the original files. So this should not be a big limitation for editers.
