Balanced (Version 1.6)

The balanced version aims to bridge the gap between Realism and Fun, allowing you to have a lot more freedom for player transfers and generally just getting on with the game.

Hard (Version 1.7)

The hard version aims to bring Career mode to the most Realism I can put in with the current tools. Together with Career Expansion Mod, you will need to think about player's happiness, undertake press conferences carefully, watch your finances, find players that suit you and fight to retain your talent!

Dynamic Face System

The Dynamic System is a very solid system for getting new faces into the game. As long as the Realism Mod is installed, this thing will work!
Simply copy and paste the system to your FIFA directory. You may want to configure the settings in v2k4settings.txt. If you do not use MPR or UFM, ensure you turn them to "0" in the file.
