NOTE: master league season crash

we still get messages about a crash in master league when going to next season, this is not smoke patch issue, we have tested the patch for seven consecutive seasons without crashing once, so it is safe to say that it is not a patch issue, as we do not get any crash when testing.

Possible reasons for this issue: 


1- corrupted game 
there are a lot of copies out there and we know that some of them are corrupted, we test the patch with steam version and with cpy-skidrow-reloaded version, no crash was found in any of our tests. so be sure your game is not corrupted.

2- using ML/BL money tools or cheats
all users who uses such tools reported the same crash, it might not be a direct cause but we cannot be sure because we dont use them and we do not recommend such tools, play the game as it is supposed to be played.

3- unofficial patch files
the ONLY official patch links are the links in the official smoke patch website (pessmokepatch.com), any other links are not ours and we cannot help you with anything.

4- modifying the patch files
changing any of the patch cpk files or change the dpfilelist is at your own risk, we test the patch with its files, changing the patch might have undesired consequences. it is possible to make changes inside the game editor, but DO NOT replace the edit file with another one even if its from previous versions.



note that if the ML or BL crash it cannot be fixed even if you fixed the cause of the crash.

other reports about occasional crashes (like some cup games) is related to another issues that will be fixed in future updates.

  11. I don't know if master league is the problem or the game itself, but I play in master league and I have random crashes, during a match or the most annoying thing at the end of a match. I use the cpy version with only smoke patch installed, no other files or tools apart from sider by juce and nesa. I don't think smoke patch is the problem, but I just can't fix this and it's pretty annoying. If someone has a solution for this pls help me.

  15. Master League crashing at the start of a season is not a Smoke Patch issue. It's user related. I know that because I've used Smoke since 2011 and I've never had that issue. Not even once. The crash during FA Cup matches is Smoke related. Thanks. Looking forward to the new patch. You guys are the best.

  16. I love the adboard variety, by the way. Any time you can add more adboards, do it. It makes the game. So does the HD rain. LOVE IT! Have a great day, boys!

  27. I have the STEAM version, i don't have any other patch unstead off smoke patch, but my ML crashes on 3rd season or 4rd Season in the same day, 4th August when i have to choose national teams to coach.
    The only thing that i modified perhaps was creating a player and puting in some club or changing the league structure by adding my club in portuguese league
