Problem with this DB, with all the high schools and universities added, the amount of youth players Japan gets is insane, close to nations like Brazil or France. I know Japan is doing better and better in terms of player development, but this is just insane levels. A lot of high schools and universities with exceptional youth intake.

Hey I have added 5 more cut out faces for the missing new transfers - 


Leo Gomes - Jubilo Iwata

Welton Paragua - Gamba Osaka

Guilherme Parede - Kashima Antlers

Aleksandar Cavric - Kashima Antlers

Ze Ricardo - Kawasaki Frontale


They were already in the main Cut Out pack but under different UIDs. So I found them and renamed the UIDs. 


Also it seems Welton, Parede and Cavric have CB as their positions. And Leo Gomes, DM, has ST as one of his playable positions. Not sure if it is just me.


Parede and Cavric , Leo Gomes etc

I fixed it.

that wouldnt be my concern as im intending to do an asia only save. 

cant get through the logic of the editor though. i added universities to 8th tier, them to be the corresponding level in the pyramid, saved it, verified it, the university league is shown to be present when you setup the game but when i create a coach and want to take over any theres no choice of any of the universities or even the league it said it would be there. anywy ill keep trying doing this until i understand

Hello! Thankyou very much for making this database! I am very soon about to start a save using your japan league system, when looking through teams i decided that the team i want to use is 'Moriyama Samurai 2000' however i noticed that this team is not complete yet ( club attendance, wage structure and badge) and so i decided to use the FM Editor 2024 ( not the ingame editor) to quickly add the badge aswell as give the players some wage, however when i load up the editor data whenever i try to verify files there seems to be an error with the JFL league ( even if i do not not make any file changes and so i cannot verify the file to be able to use it with Moriyama Samurai 2000 completed) Im just contacting to please ask if you may know of a way i can fix this? thanks and sorry for using some of your time!
