Hey guys, I'm trying to set up my team with two different shorts options. One blue and one white for both the home and away.

I've done it before, but I don't remember how to now. I know it has something to do with the "Alternative jersey number" field.

The default for all options is zero. If for my home kit, I want the white shorts to be the primary, do I set them as 1? Then do I have to set the blue shorts to "2"? Or do I keep the primary at 0 and the secondary as 1?

Do I have to set the shirt and socks to "1" as well to match the white shorts set to "1"?

It's taking forever to test the different combinations in game as when I play a friendly, there is no way to know which shorts will be picked (I keep getting blue on blue, from either my settings or happenstance)
