Plays.xml Mod

Plays.xml Mod

Postby MattP598 » Sun Jun 23, 2019 4:15 am

There isn't a CF 2019 Mod forum so I thought I would ask this here. Is this guide still relevant for CF 2019... http://www.wolverinestudios.com/board/v ... 56&t=28520

I haven't tested the plays mod that was created for 2018 yet, but someone made a post in the CF 2018 Mod forum that it no longer worked with CF 2019. I was just wondering why that is because looking at the two files I can't see where anything has changed in regards to this.

I'm interesting in creating my own plays.xml mod but wanted to get clarification on this first.

Thanks!

Yes, modding the file is still valid in 2019. I haven't tested the plays mod for 2018 for compatibility in 2019, but in general the technique should still work.

So apparently when I try to modify the plays.xml file it corrupts the file to the point where I can't even select my coach's background, etc, when starting a new game. When I get into the game and try to create a new playbook, there are no plays there. This is the format I use:

<Play Freq="1" Formation="Shotgun" Name="X Shallow" Type="Pass" OffScheme="Spread" PassPref="Balanced" PassTargetPref="Balanced" RBRole="Catching" TERole="Catching" BaseForm ="False">
<Slot ID="0">
<Path>
<Action Type="QB Drop Back Medium" />
</Path>
</Slot>
<Slot ID="1" Pct="20">
<Path>
<Action Type="FlatL" />
</Path>
</Slot>
<Slot ID="2" Pct="25">
<Path>
<Action Type="Left Out" />
</Path>
</Slot>
<Slot ID="3" Pct="15">
<Path>
<Action Type="Left Fly" />
</Path>
</Slot>
<Slot ID="4" Pct="25">
<Path>
<Action Type="FlatR" />
</Path>
</Slot>
<Slot ID="5" Pct"15">
<Path>
<Action Type="Streak" />
</Path>
</Slot>
<Slot ID="6">
<Path>
<Action Type="Pass Block Tackle" />
</Path>
</Slot>
<Slot ID="7">
<Path>
<Action Type="Pass Block Guard" />
</Path>
</Slot>
<Slot ID="8">
<Path>
<Action Type="Pass Block Center" />
</Path>
</Slot>
<Slot ID="9">
<Path>
<Action Type="Pass Block Guard" />
</Path>
</Slot>
<Slot ID="10">
<Path>
<Action Type="Pass Block Tackle" />
</Path>
</Slot>
</Play>

Is there any glaring reason I can't get it to work?

I tried to edit it in Excel but I get the error, "Cannot save or export XML data. The XML maps in this workbook are not exportable."

XML files are easier to work with in notepad++ or some other text editor.

Yes, I figured out what happened. I had left off an "=" after Pct.
