Hi all!

This is a file that I've been plugging away at, on and off, dating back to Football Manager 2013. It originally started out as a throwback to the 1999-2003 format of the UEFA Champions League which contained 2 group stages, and has since progressed into a full structure where I've managed to find room to bring back the UEFA Intertoto Cup. Additionally there are now 6 separate files so you can choose whether you'd like to use the UEFA Europa League or revert back to the UEFA Cup, along with the option for the inclusion of the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup.

Additionally, the AFC Champions League has been added as an extra option, and uses the same 2 group stage format as the UEFA Champions League in this file. The AFC Cup is not a part of this file however. That may change in the future though if people would like to see it added.

**NOTES**

- Only use 1 of these 6 files when starting the game. I've made 6 different files available for download in order to give you an option on which format/competitions you'd like to use in the game. 3 have the Cup Winners' Cup and 3 don't. You also have a choice of the UEFA Cup or Europa League, as well as 1 group phase or 2 group phases in the Europa League. The AFC Champions League file can be used with whichever UEFA file you choose to use however.

- If you are taking control of a team in the first season that is competing in the UEFA Intertoto Cup, you will have to add the top league in Romania as a playable nation, as it allows you to start the game at June 10th

- Something I forgot to mention previously is that the nation rankings are slightly customized, so the top 4 nations will now get 4 teams for the Champions League instead of 3

I'll wait for your answer, because it's very interesting idea, but reputation of national championships also isn't changing. I created many saves to see , how it works, and found , what this update doesn't like another updates ( for example , pre-season pack tournaments from FM Scout, or World Cup Club from same site (I love cup competitions) ). When i combine them, all the tournaments in your update breaking in a few years , Europa League sometimes brokes in Qualification Round on the first season , Group Stage doesn't appear after it)...but Champions League revived after 2 years of inactivity
=D.. Anyway, without another updates it works fine , but would be great to solve the problem described in my previous comment =)

P.S. I'm Russian, my English isn't very well , but i tried.

So I've taken a look in my own save with this file and it turns out that you're right. The club coefficients table is not displaying any teams, and it doesn't look like the league reputations are updating each year either. I'll try and get these sorted and reuploaded as soon as possible. Additionally I've noticed that the first round of the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup is still having a few fixture clashes, so I'll get that fixed as well by moving it to September instead of August.

As for the competitions breaking, it'll be because the fixture dates are clashing with other save files you're trying to use. Unfortunately there's not much I can do with that as I'd have to configure my file to work around the others. If you're wanting to use other competition files at the same time as one of my six files, you'll have to do a test run in your game save to make sure that they can run together. The problem is that with there being up to 5 European competitions (if you decide to run with the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup), you're not left with much more room when you factor in the international breaks, domestic fixtures and the FIFA Club World Cup.

All 6 files on their own should be activating the Intertoto Cup. I'm currently running a save using the one group stage Europa League and it's showing up in my game, and the other 5 activated it when I was running tests. As for the name showing up as the EURO Vase, I can only guess that's down to you possibly not having the competition name fix installed.

I'm away this weekend so won't be able to access the editor until Sunday night, but I'll look into this for you and try to get it sorted.

I have a competition name fix, but this isn't included there...however, the rest of the competitions is included.

Hi guys. I've just finished running new test saves with each of the 6 files and the competitions are all showing up for me, with the correct names intact. This was me running the files one at a time with no name fixes or additional editor files, so they should be working.

To those of you having problems, are you running any additional editor files alongside mine? If so, there may be some kind of clash occurring in the background that's impacting the Intertoto Cup. That's the only thing left I can think of right now. I would also suggest opening the file up in your editor and checking the name of the competitions in there such as the Intertoto Cup, just to be sure that everything is laid out properly on your side.

Note: If in the editor the competition is named Intertoto Cup, try loading your database on its own with no editor file loaded. It may be called EURO Vase in there by default.

@Qooqle1995 I've also looked into fixing the coefficients and league rankings updating each year, but the only way I could get it to work was by changing the competitions from "Edited Rules" to "Override Rules In Code". This however caused problems with the seeding of teams in each competition (Champions League sides being called into Europa League), as well as the competition format reverting to default. Ultimately I've had to keep it as it was for now until I can find a way to try and line everything up under the override rules conditions (I might have to rebuild it all from scratch but I'm hoping that won't be needed). It may be a case of having to wait until FM18 and hoping they fix the issue of the rankings not working under edited rules. Sorry about that.

Never mind, it's not really important for me , I only said about problems which i had found in this update..If you could fix this , it would be great.. Anyway, thanks for your efforts.

You'd have to play around with the fates in the Intertoto Cup final, and you'd then have to reconfigure the Cup Winners' Cup seeding so that only 31 teams are called from winning their own domestic cup, and leave one space for Intertoto winner.

I wasn't able to get the co-efficients working unfortunately unless I changed the competitions to Override Rules In Code. This caused a ton of problems and errors though. Hopefully for FM18 they add the co-efficients for Edited Rules.

Thanks a lot. Teams from Kosovo aren't active in the file right now but they will be included in the next update for all competitions. The prize money is mostly along the guidelines of what the real competitions have, give or take a little bit for each round (some may appear more generous though in the latter stages). The Cup Winners' Cup from what I remember is a little more generous though as I wanted to give more incentive for players to try and advance in the competition.

I'm also contemplating giving the Cup Winners' Cup winner a Champions League spot along with Europa and Champions League winners but not fully set on it yet, as I don't want a potential scenario of one nation getting six teams.

Bro the game crashes after I make it past the Intertoto first round...

Im using my own merged BeNeLiga mod (Combined league of Netherlands/Belgium/Luxembourg), and changed the name of the competition to "UEFA Intertoto cup" in the editor cause it was called "EURO vase"

Any idea why?

Hi.

I'd imagine that because you have combined 3 nations into 1 that the UEFA competitions can't call teams from each nation individually. As for the Intertoto being called the Euro Vase, have you downloaded the Real Names fix?

I feared as much, have you got any idea how to make this compatible with my own file? (A way of removing Belgium and Lux as countries from the cup?)

I hadnt downloaded the names fix at the time of posting no, but just did.

I think the only way to do it would be to call the teams from whatever nation you've set the merged competition to (if there is one?).

Hi.
Thank you so much for taking time to do this awesome UEFA Revival, but I have a couple of questions (they might be plain stupid but I'm new to FM games).
1. The Intertoto cup is called EURO Vase. I downloaded the latest update of your database a month ago and it says that it should have all fixes inside. What's with that?
2. I chose the file with 2 group CL, UEFA Cup, Intertoto and Cup winner's Cup, but the Cup winner's Cup is not working I think. It is not shown in game when I browse the European tournaments. I am using a couple of other files like latest transfers, mega league pack + non-Eu continental championships, realistic media and the FIFA League file which removes Euro and World cups and sorts all nations in a couple of leagues with promotions and relegations + a cup with all nations from all leagues. Could it be the other editor files that are causing problems? I hope not, because the game became so much interesting with both yours and the other files.
Sorry for the long comment and bad English (I'm Bulgarian).
Cheers, mate!
