This is just a quick reminder how to access the advanced rules for a Nation and then the competitions that are
loaded into the game.

You need to Add Nation Rules- select a Nation eg Spain


https://i.gyazo.com/08650ac52a61714d69a621a23090f05c.png
make sure you select ADD LOWER DIVISIONS AND CUPS

Then you need to do this

convert to advanced rules

now you get to see the rules concerning that Nation and the various Leagues (This where you can remove things like Brexit easily via the agreements section when viewing England)

It can be daunting at first but the only way to learn is to have a good look around and take your time the best advice I can give is download a file that has changes made to it and see how it was done

So lets look at 2 issues raised in the forum today- How do I change the number of Subs(this can be done in basic rules but the second question involved using advanced rules so do both whilst in advanced rules)

Change Subs user wanted 7 from 12

Find the Comp you want to change
Find Stages in the Drop Down Menu
Then whatever stage you want to edit - Here it is a League
Then find league settings
Find the Sub rules and change

The second question was how to change the squad registration allocation from 25 to 30, again easily done

You need to go to the comp and find the general tab as we need to find the fixture rules index that relates to this competition
here we see it is Fixture Rule 0

https://i.gyazo.com/c9894fc47a0cde7463a1e478a3e7b5b3.png


So then close the drop down menu for the comp and open the Spain one this will show you the Fixture rule index/s for the nation
select the one you want and change the squad selection accordingly

Once you have made the changes save the file either export to create a.xml file or save as to create a fmf file

after this you need to verify your changes to use the file in game

https://i.gyazo.com/2685fdebc1eab9fa1dc986956a51a2d7.png

NB The FM21 Editor is currently bugged to hell and you cant even open advanced rules for Spain at this stage in fact most nations have issues so at this stage I am not doing any major editing and wont be until a fix is released. In the meantime look at the FM20 editor to have a look around for Spain. You can open advanced rules for most nations in FM21 to take a look but you wont be able to verify the file.

So to remove Brexit same process to access A.R. for England

https://i.gyazo.com/55c47baa930f017e9023ae10444a1fb7.png

Find agreement edit/or remove it totally

If you want to edit work permits its via transfer tab

https://i.gyazo.com/7f81c519bd2a2f258036073e6ec1ee88.png



In Fm21 Editor SI have made it more streamlined and better to navigate in that you initially only see the Nation and its rules to switch to a comp use the drop down menu

Now removing Brexit is simple and the whole process should take a couple of mins tops....not so this year as the editor is buggy most nation throw out errors like this as SI havent set of the leagues correctly

Time consuming but you can remedy this by adjusting the number of teams in the league to remove the error
so what I do take a screenshot of the error and then find this tab REQUIRED TEAMS - from there you can edit to remove the errors

Now after doing this and if you encounter anymore issues it is a matter to take up with SI in their bugs forum as they have set up several sets of rules covering things like the Bury situation you will see various rules for say(21 teams) (24 teams) etc etc for several comps this is where the problems are and wont be addressed until there is a fix in the editor so hang fire before starting any major projects is my advice, the editor has been released untested is the best explanation I can suggest.

NB - A tip I have always given to anyone when editing - if you don't want to lose hours of work - make backups and use incremental saves

I dont go more than 15 mins of editing without saving a file

Use save as and name your file to be easily found eg- player changes file 01/02 etc


Also back up a file once finished store it on D drive etc just in case a file is corrupted or some changes do not work as intended you then have a plan B

I also highly recommend keeping changes file specific- that means keep club changes in one specific file- player changes in a separate file-

This way any errors failed changes are easier to find/resolve and if something corrupts you don't lose everything if you lump all the changes in one big file.

How to load an editor file into the game, when it is not verfied

Save it and export it as xml.

Open the xml document with notepad and change the line that starts with "verf" to true (or if it is already true then set to false) and try loading it again in game.

Some xml files are not loading in this years game-I have found open the xml file in the FM 21 Editor use import to open it

Then just select -Save As-- name the file and it now is saved as a FMF file and loads in game
