Are you running the editor as admin? :D

All good Mark

As you said, 3.9.68 & above will be more stable, personally I blame it all on Trunky

:lol: The thought had occurred to me :lol:

I will point out though that having switched to 3.9.68, then ran release them all - it's worked right away! Must just not be compatible with 3.9.65. Possibly .67 as well, AMC, so although I'd love to play on a DB that I've personally never used before, I think for the longevity of the DTL, it makes sense!

Question for Derm though, and anyone else if they know the answer - If I were to clear the club competition histories for PL, League Cup, FA Cup, etc - would this have an effect on the game even after I add the last 5 years worth of DTL winners, etc? I know clearing it completely causes errors, but if there are a handful of histories in there, would it still work?

If no-one knows the answer, I'll do some testing to be sure!

Also Derm (or anyone else!), what's the latest tool nowadays to be able to import competition/player histories into the database? Is there one that does both? Thinking it makes sense now that we're on 3.9.68, to compile the histories into a spreadsheet for importing into all future databases now.

I would like to point out that I was an early advocate for .68 and therefore wish to claim my prize.

Damnnn I spent 2 hours on .65 evaluating my depreciating piles of horse dung, ah well I'm sure on .68 things can only get worse :)

Once the last winner is there I don't think it makes any difference.

The History Project Tool Works fine. Are you planning to move the start year? If no just make sure to compensate for the adjustment e.g. either remove the previous 5 seasons and add our 5 seasons or move the whole lot back 5 seasons. If you are just putting our data clear all the history for the comp and replace it with ours, should be no issue. Just a note, 2000 in the DB is the winner of the 2000/01 season.

On that note, if you have Colchester in a text file as 2001 winners, in History Project Tool you must go back 1 year. Yeah, a pain in the hole but zozoa was having none of it when I asked him to change it :lol:

Just checked a few players to see PA/ CA stats.

For me Mendieta is the biggest loser...down 10 or so of each but loses his DM role and just becomes a winger. Gilberto Silva (+18/+20), Ballack (+28/+14) and Jan Koller (+12/+14) are among my biggest risers.

For other players the biggest rise I checked was Puyol (+32/+39) and Pirlo (+7/+39).

Thanks mate, this is good news as otherwise, I was going to have to change this manually! I'll likely do it manually for this time around as (I think?) I can then export the histories and use that as a template for future imports! Thanks for the tip about the tool, I think I was planning on having the latest histories (i.e. season 5) recorded as 2001 in the editor...

So all transfers from season 1 so far have been rebuilt in the 3.9.68 and Derm was right, all competition histories are working OK after clearing and just adding the one row to track our winners from that year.

Our little DTL world will look pretty cool once it's been fully rebuilt with stats, etc:

And yes, I've also decided to clear the international caps/goals and add these to anyone who were capped under the DTL management. Mixes it up a little more when you see that for example Hasney Aljofree has 5 caps for England!

Season 2 all up to speed now, statistics starting to stack up and nice to see how players have been moving around, even if they didn't feature for their club after quick trades:

Are you going to have to do all this before the start of the season again? After the haggles/ cpu sales and auctions?

And surely you should have started at 96/97 to give us 5 years worth before 01/02? You have it on the cups, just not on the players.
