CEP 2.0 is ready, some news on CEP 2007
CEP Career Expansion PatchI'm glad to announce that the CEP 2.0 is ready: I received the last minikits missing from Jose Delgado so now I just have to pack everything in an exe, test that it works properly, then uploading it to filefront to let you download the last and ultimate expansion patch for Fifa 2006: most probably I'll be able to announce the release tomorrow but maybe during the night you can have some more news. Together with the CEP 2.0 you will find the publication of the Kits Addon 3.0 that will feature a lot of wonderful updated kits for the 2006/07 season. Together with the release of the last version of CEP we inaugurate the new CEP forums too, with a more user-friendly interface for all the no-italian speakers users, you can find the brand new forums here, so if you have questions about CEP or if you want to submit collaborations and suggestions be sure to register and give your contribution to our work.
A very good new for CEP users is that I had the possibility to give a look to the fifa 2007 database: the game will bring some innovations in players characteristics and stats together with a bunch of new options for the career mode, but the core part of the db is almost unvariated and this means that the work of conversion of the CEP for Fifa 2007 will not be a great trouble and will not take too much time.
Some clarifications about the CEP 2.0 that you will find tomorrow on Sweetpatch: it will be a 450/500 mb exe (Kits Addon should be about 150 mb), and you will find that it will adds many fsh files inside your main Fifa directory: this is because of the resolution of the fifa.fat limitation problems. FSH (the graphical files) outside of the .big files can make the game very croppy and slow if they are related to the elements animated by the match engine, as players kits for example, while their presence outside the big files doesn't affect the performance of the game if they are static graphical elements (logos, banners etc.): this discovery did possible the adding of so many teams and leagues because the space really needed inside the .big files is essentially the ones of the kits: anyway a complicated system of FSH elaboration is needed for these files outside the big to properly work and being shown, a system that here at CEP we discovered and used for this last incarnation of CEP for fifa 2006.
The CEP 2.0 will include a new gameplay developed by an idea of Fifaccitiu (the most genuine editing-genious I have known during these nine months of Fifa editing) and with the help of the great editor Rinaldo: this gameplay will be a new and updated version of the CEP gameplay that features the innovation of reducing field size to improve CPU gameplay and skill together with general better movements and actions development on the field. This gameplay will feature not only a REAL great difficulty for the most expert players at the highest level (World Cup and Legendary), but will have some lower levels of difficulty too balanced for the less expert players and the ones who will find the game too hard to beat. If you want to use another gameplays for CEP you'll have to apply the gameplay revert patch that you will find in the downloads section, even if the new career.ini settings will not be tested with other gameplays. As usually after the installation process of the CEP 2.0 and of the Kits Addon remember to execute the fatbhbuilder.exe utility to let them properly working; a fresh installation of Fifa as always is strongly suggested even if a CEP 0.12 Fifa will not have problems with CEP 2.0; as usual Fifa modified with other patches can have problems with CEP 2.0, so be sure to check the FAQ that will be included in the installer.
A last word has to be spent to the way in which this CEP 2.0 has been realized: thanks to the work of dozens of contributors who, with their excel sheets, text notes, kits, suggestions and segnalation, allowed the creation of what is indeed the widest patch ever published for a soccer game: this work would have been impossible for me without the collaboration of so many soccer fans that provided preciois informations that has been transformed in number and valours inside the database. A special thanks is given to Esterry88, who coordinated in a wonderful way the work of all our excellent friends and collaborators, and to Jose Delgado that his the great graphical artist between the work done on this 2.0 version: I'm sure that when I will stop editing (I don't like to perform the same hobby for too much time..) they will surely keep the work started this year in the most appropriate way. A big thanks to David Witts too, who believed in this project and allow us to work on the CEP for the most important Fifa web portal, Sweetpatch.
A last very important note: to state it more clearly (even if this does appear when you install the CEP and when the game starts too..): IS NOT ALLOWED to modify and redistribute ANY SINGLE part of the CEP database, interface and graphical files: the CEP is copyrighted by the wonderful portal of Sweetpatch that offers the CEP for free and for your entertainment, but exclusively on its pages: we worked hard since April 2006 on the CEP 2.0, I hope everyone will respect the work done by many people with the only interest of improving the Fifa experience. So, the release is questions of hours but since now prepare yourself to the Fifa 2007 conversion of the CEP , only on Sweetpatch!
