Synchronated SWOS 2011-12 Starter Pack

The starter pack contains all that there is so far, which is (for both Amiga and PC):

- English league, all divisions, updated with Asamoah Gyan gone (had to make an exception there)
- Italian league, all divisions
- Spanish league, all divisions

- Modified SWOS2 (Amiga) and sws.exe (PC) game files to fit the 2011-12 league structures (including the ones still to come). These also contain official FIFA nationality codes, which you'll want for the new data, since Montenegro and Libya have replaced two defunct codes. That's why van Persie's nationality is 'NED' and not 'HOL' in the Arsenal screenshot, if you'd spotted it. The new league data files may not work properly unless you use these files, due to differences in league structures (instructions included).

- Classics league, which replaces the El Salvador league - this is a pool of legendary retired players arranged into 46 competing clubs. You can buy greats from it in career mode or just ignore it; it won't affect the rest of the game.

The rest of the leagues (and national teams) will be released over the next few weeks and will work with the included SWOS2/sws.exe files.

EDIT: note that career mode will NOT work with the 2011-12 game files until the remaining leagues have been released, due to changes in league structures from previous seasons. All other game modes will work fine with whatever leagues have so far been released.

EDIT 2: link deleted; newer version now available.

Cheers

  1. bosnia-h crash in carrier mode swos total pack.. why?

    ReplyDelete
  2. Because the Bosnian league doesn't exist yet. It will be released in a few weeks. Until the other leagues come, career mode won't work with this SWOS2/sws file, just the ENG/ESP/ITA and Classics.

  5. Friendlies and leagues will work well as long as you only use England, Italy, Spain and Classics leagues (the ones provided).

  7. Not sure I understand you at this point... only England, Italy and Spain should work properly. Everything else just depends on what you already had installed before.

  8. I've got a problem: if I replace Synchronated team files on my ADF my PC says "Not enough space". Only HDF?

    ReplyDelete
  9. Yes, you need to be using an hdf that has enough space, or just have a swos folder, containing the same contents as a swos9697 hdf file, and configure winuae to use it as a hard disk.

    You can fit the team files on an adf by deleting team.072, which is the original custom teams, to create space. Not sure about replacing swos2 on an adf though.

  10. Uhm, a SWOS folder... I'll try it. :-)

    swos2 works fine on an ADF.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Cool, that's good to know. Do the team.xxx files fit if you delete team.072? I seem to remember they do, but I haven't used an adf file for a long time.

  12. Can anyone do me the team of Malta in swos and Maltese Premier division. Swos for us was the only game that shows Malta team. It remain memorable for that thing. If we have Malta Premiere division is enough. I like to leave this to professional ones, but if I have to prepare something I can do it instead. Such relevant information can be obtain from www.maltafootball.com. Our contry love this game so much.Thanks

  15. Thanks very much Synchronated, because I cannot find them even in new Synchronated 2010-2011 as a National Team. Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  16. The national team will be there too. I haven't done the national teams yet. Cheers :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. Actually the thing about the Malta national team is that they're ranked 51st in Europe (FIFA) and 50th in Europe (ELO), and SWOS only has 48 teams in Europe. So they WILL be included in the file, but as a 'non-league' team, and you can activate them in an editor (by changing their division to 'premier' and relegating someone else to 'non-league') if you want to :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. Ok thats why. It is fair for others. So they will not be there in the europe national teams as it was in 1996? I do not know if we were in 1996 ranked before 48th.

    I want to do it with an editor first but I prefer someone else who knows well in rating the players.If it possible.

  19. I just look at your new Data team files. Finally I found Malta and my village team also :-) What can I say is a fantastic Job. Keep it up Syncronated. very fantastic!! very fantastic

    The colors of the gear, the name of the players and coaches, the position of the players and rankings are very good Job.

    ---->Some small problems what I really find is that I cannot do a career mode with any Maltese team. When I select a team it crashed.

    Some changes will be perfect - maybe next time:

    Valletta FC team - D. Santos (M)(really good brazilian player) instead K.Magro(does not exists)

    Blackpool FC - Division One League of England - D. Bogdanovic(Maltese)(LW/A/M) he play last game for blackpool and in Swos he is not there.

    Also J.Haber (Maltese - (GK) - Kerkyra (Greece)is not there. J.Haber supposed to be the second goalkeeper.

    There are others but these are the most important ones.

    But what can i say is that overall it is a superb job. Great.

  20. "Some small problems what I really find is that I cannot do a career mode with any Maltese team. When I select a team it crashed."

    What version of the game are you playing? You *must* replace your SWOS2 file (Amiga version) or sws.exe (PC version) with the new version of the file provided, or many leagues will crash like this and career mode will not work. This is because the number of teams in each league has changed. As well as the names of some leagues.

    I will put Denni (Santos) in the Valletta team instead of Kurt Magro, who I believe has left. Thanks for the tip :) I will consider the other changes.

    The Malta national team will exist, updated, in the national teams file, they just won't be in the 'premier' division; I can email you an alternative file with them as one of the 48 'premier' teams if you like. In 1996 there were only 49 national teams in UEFA, so 48 (+Yugoslavia) was everyone.

  21. Also, if emulating the Amiga version using WinUAE, you must have 'cycle exact' ON in the CPU options, or career mode will fail.

  22. Thanks again Synchronated. I just extract the new swos.exe to the new folder launcher/TEAMSETS/@11/sws++/..I am very pleased with your works.

    I could not find words how to thank you.

    I do not know why this game is not in process again. Maybe it can be played like other Facebook games or else. I know you can play it online and I know it is not a cheap game.

    It is now passed nearly 20 years from when it was launched and still remain one of the most enjoyable, simple and informative game one ever played. You can play it easily and in a few minutes. We are in 2011 and maybe an idea could be a complete interactive, 'new swos' which can be played through a twitter or facebook where you can add friends to play with(carrer mode is something else). I think it does not need to much megabytes (Farmville on facebook I think require more)I think sponsors should not be a problem as they can be advertised in the game or pitch. Maybe it is a dream but I think and confident that you and others dedicated are capable to do it.

    can you send it to my email - williambarbara@hotmail.com thanks

  24. I will send it this evening. Loved your words about swos. Amazing. Shame the official versions keep being poor. Cheers :)

  25. Thanks for that file. Last thing can we play two players with the same keyboard? and when is going to be released Swos-Total Pack V1.13?Thanks as usual

    ReplyDelete
  26. I don't think so. Even if you configure it, a keyboard will struggle to take 6 keys at once, which will be necessary. Often they can't take 3 (diagonal + shoot).
    Don't know about Total Pack. I still use 1.06 to test the PC version as 1.09 doesn't work at all for me. Cheers
