    • Parsing FM14.clb files

      Hello,

      I'm trying to write a program that reads a club roster from websites such as transfermarkt, or footballdatabase.eu, and writes it into a .clb file.
      This may speed up the generation of a database of true player names quite a lot.
      I have done some tests with FM08 and they went fairly well, but now I would like to do the same with FM14. Is there any information available
      on what is the meaning of each line in the part of a FM .clb file that describes a player? For example, let's take this bit

      %INDEX%PLAYER

      While the meaning of some lines is obvious, I am not quite sure what the line just below the date of birth means. From some tests I have done,
      I see that the number 6 is "talent-1", and the number 1 is the "leadership" attribute. However, I couldn't find out what the numbers 3, 5, 2 mean
      (I tried to change them, but I did not see any corresponding change in the editor). Does anyone here have this info? I have tried to search for it
      on this forum, but I couldn't find anything (maybe because I don't speak German). Any help would be appreciated.
