Champions League/European Cup was created by Samsonite
Is there a way in which I can alter the Champs. League/Euro. Cup from a tournement back into the strictly cup competition (knock out) of old?

How would I go about setting this up in career mode without it crashing at the end of the season, etc? Would it be fiddly?

Yes, there is a way.
Open SWOS.exe and search for the following hex string:

04 04 08 00 08 04 00 04 02 00 02 01 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 94 94 14

This describes the European Cup format as follows:

04 04 08 means 4 groups with 4 teams, 8 teams qualify (group stage)
00 08 04 means 0 groups (=knockout) with 8 teams, 4 qualify (quarter finals)
00 04 02 means 0 groups (=knockout) with 4 teams, 2 qualify (semifinals)
00 02 01 means 0 groups (=knockout) with 2 teams, 1 qualify (final)

94 means two legs (quarter finals and semifinals)
14 means one leg (final)

So basically you can replace "04 04 08" with "00 10 08" and you get knockout instead of 4 groups
Besides, just replace a 00 before 94 with another 94, and you get two legs for the first knockout stage

If you want to get rid of seeded, before the string above you find at some point 01 01 01. Just replace it with 01 00 01 and stage draws become completely random instead of seeded.

I like 1 group of 16 teams...only 1 round (15 matches). Then 8 teams fixed by group position (1st vs 8th...). Its a real European Champions league. Another thing I did was 16 teams (4×4)-> 12 (3×4)-> 8 (2×4)-> finalists (tried 1x4 crushed new season).
