The files are in text format so copy them and paste into notepad, name them accordingly and then save. I put the file on my desktop so it is easy to find later

Then you need to open the editor

go to rules

add nation rules

select the country required eg England select add lower divisions and then click finish

https://i.gyazo.com/f56faa48433aeadb33307a45fd1bdb61.png

Now click on the division you want to add the fixtures to(NB if you want to do several leagues they need to be done now at this stage before converting to advanced rules BUT do one league at a time).

https://i.gyazo.com/0e852651df88c9bd983cd14335dd3195.png

select general tab and tick use specific fixtures

you will see the fixtures tab under the league now

select it and click on import

find desktop and select the notepad file you earlier created

it will import that text file and convert it to this

https://i.gyazo.com/6e8c3e41fca14999f4c7b3290a7519a2.png

now here is a very crucial point you need to swap the promoted /relegated teams for the 19/20 season in that league otherwise it wont verify

once verified by selecting test rules save it for xml file you need to use the export tab

stop there

Once you have done the first file rinse and repeat

create the notepad files you want and save to desktop

so in the example above go through each league as per the above and NB dont forget those promotion/relegation changes to get the correct teams in each league

A tip verify/test rules after each set of fixtures is added to a league

Once you are happy you have added all the fixtures to the leagues you want save- use export (saves as xml file)

you can now convert to advanced rules to address any issues that may occur with fixture clashes etc eg with domestic cup games

select advanced rules

https://i.gyazo.com/0df978dc6e224b4c2c36154506d34124.png

now you get a much more detailed panel with all the guts of various competitions you can edit

for the example here we are looking to resolve a known issue eg the FA cup Final is set for the 19/5/19 clashing with round 38 of the EPL
to fix this

select premier league

stages

fixture scheduling rules

click fixture dates
https://i.gyazo.com/a4ad892b47dcc7066bc126d22e4e3369.png

you will see that round 38 has been set for 13 may 2001 this needs to be changed to 20 may 2001

(this will allow that final round to be played on the 19/5/19 as set up in our fixtures
when done correctly this is it in game

https://i.gyazo.com/83506d40f02f991e6011ae85c85f451e.jpg

save the file there can be done by using export remember

Right the next issue is that FA Cup final being played on the same day as round 38

I have moved the final a week earlier (as moving it forward could result in teams who may have qualified for a European final only having a few days between games)

you need to select the FA Cup in drop down menu (select 2018 one there may be one for 2019 ignore that)

find fixture scheduling rules

Fixture dates

find the final and change it to this date 12/5/2001

https://i.gyazo.com/345b782d4cea910872acc33f49a31fc7.png

When done correctly in game this will be the result

https://i.gyazo.com/eb1d7bf4223b2d5c225fbbee6acc0884.jpg


This will now resolve the issue with the Cup final clash and if any EPL teams have made the final they will play their round 37 league game on the Wednesday before/or after the cup final

https://i.gyazo.com/7704f2d3edaf39a1684071b4262522eb.jpg

save the file using save as to create a FMF file or export for XML file

you are now ready to test/verify the file

You will be prompted to save the file first before testing

so use save as and name the file (it will be saved as FMF)

verify

https://i.gyazo.com/5eaba87333e8e932d511fb3762acd954.png

now if you want you can use export here again to save the file as a XML (NB you will now have 2 files in your edited data folder You can only use one on game set up)

So the work is now done I hope you have found this guide helpful

Now for one last thing test the file in game DO NOT trust the verify process it has been bugged for several years and with things like this a file works well in first season then issues such as no games being generated happen in the next season

use a custom start up date so you are into May 2018 if you wish and then holiday until July then see if leagues are starting as normal

I have done the comprehensive step by step guide and shown how to resolve issues @Dmitri-K has provided the fixtures for you so the hard work has been done.

Now have a go at doing this yourself for the fixtures you want to use it is easy just do it step by step take your time and it will be rewarding

NB Initially check for any clashes look at the dates of domestic cups in your chosen Nation run a test in game use a custom start date and see if ALL the fixtures are played correctly - league and cup if they are there is no need to do any work in advanced rules.

I cant stress enough the need to carry out in game testing its the only way to be 100% sure there are no issues and will save you grief in the long run. So check for fixture clashes and second season starting correctly is a must, same as all editing prep is everything.

To that end use this file as a custom start date if you want to test

Your text to link here...
If you want a later start date open file in editor and change the season start date (you cant go later than end of May 2019)

no idea what you are on about

I have removed some of your posts stop spamming the thread with the same thing and nonsense and learn some manners people are donig things here in their own time it doesnt cost anything for a please/thank you etc

the site has lost the input of @SirTAVARES partly due to this with users taking advantage of his goodwill wanting more and more without displaying any gratitude for the massive amount of time he was sacrificing to help everyone here so post accordingly in future

Ok, great. I will try to generate fixtures for all that leagues which are there in promotion/relegation file, in next days.
However, calendars for some leagues are not available completely on transfermarkt, so I won't do them probably (I didn't make fixtures for Vanarama National League South/North because of this).

yes that can be an issue so dont do files you are unsure about

and keep posting them in text format as above that is great

if you cant add to the OP/or the second post just PM me as it might be down to me creating the thread , pass on the file/s and I will add

want to put all the files in first couple of posts not spread through the thread

@Dmitri-K An issue has been reported re 2 Bundesliga and not being able to verify as the first fixture is outside the remit for fixture dates(even if you change season start it wont verify)

so the easy solution for everyone is just change that first fixture date to the 28/7/18

https://i.gyazo.com/dc4bae084654aec59bb8e6ef1bd4e181.png the file then verifies

Also noted that you have added the real results the idea was just for the fixtures only ?

users can then add the real results if they wish to the file, just in case they want to start a save for a team in that league

dont worry users when setting up a file can remove the scores if they wish



cheers

any user getting an issue with some files to verify because of dates outside the set up range see the example I have shown above for 2. Bundesliga
it will be down to an opening/end fixture outside the season date range NB we are shoe- horning 19/20 fixtures into the 18/19 season so some tweaks may be required

so either change that one game(IMO the best option)or change the dates of the season start /end and have a play around until it works cold be moving dates a day will suffice or a week just save the file before you test/verify so no changes are lost

If you get other issues and there are bugs with some nations (portugal/spain etc)since the 19.3 update follow the link earlier in thread to gain support from SI as the issue is with the editor not the file/s here

as a tip I have found if you encounter some of these bugs reload the DB and select the original DB not 19.3 IMPORT/LOAD YOUR SAVED FILE AND SAVE AGAIN IN THIS DB then verify/test most bugs are gone

I have tested all fixtures for English leagues with no issues it even verified without moving that fixture outside the set up dates

I would still recommend moving that Luton game on the 3/8/18 to 4/8/18
...thats 18

Good explanation @kingrobbo

I updated the first post, added Liga NOS and Eredivisie fixtures files.

About start/end dates: does the end date also include promotion/relegation play-offs?

It may be an old bug but for users info in skybet championship it would look like there are some fixtures with time 24.30 instead of 12.30

so just open in notepad + and replace 2430 with 1230
