Convert db for PCM 2018
Hi. I have differents historical db for PCM 2016 and PCM 2017, but I want to play it in PCM 2018.

How can Ii adapt the db?

Thanks in advance.
Ulrich Ulriksen
You can adapt it, '17 to '18 is particularly easy. However, it will take a little work.

You need to address 3 things at a minimum: Jerseys, Stages and the CDB file. If you have custom equipment, you would need to address that as well, but I can't help you with that.

PCM '17 uses the same stages and I think jersey specifications as PCM '18. So those will translate no problem, just copy to the appropriate directory.

Next is the CDB file. Most of the table in the CDB don't change that much year to year and many don't matter for a custom DB. I haven't specifically looked at 17 vs 18 but my guess is the tables are similar. It will take a little time but you can individually transfer the required tables from the PCM 17 CDB to 18 using the excel editor. Which tables you need to do depends on how much modification was done to the historical DB.

PCM '16 does not use the same jerseys or stages so if your historical DB includes custom jerseys and/or stages that will be harder. The Jersey's isn't a big deal to convert, Irfanview has a tool that will allow you to resize them all at once. But for the stages you would need all the ZCTS files. Converting the CDB file is the same story as '17 to '18 and won't be a problem with some work.

If you want to pursue it I can give you more specifics.
Thank you. I only copy some rows in a Dyn_Cyclist, Dyn_Sponsor and Dyn_Team. Is seems that will work, because I can play any stage, and I started a carrer, but the game shows a alert message after I selected this db
Ulrich Ulriksen
Good, if that is only tables you edited in the original DB then that should be fine in PCM18.

Not sure about the alert that might matter it might not. If it is working in career it is probably OK although I have seen things where you get a crash later.

If it crashes PM me the CDB and I can see if I see anything.
Just wish to say your article is as astounding. The clearness to your submit is just spectacular and that i could suppose you are an expert in this subject. I found something new about Nintendo eShop gift card code generator
