New Save Game Scouter

Post by ChrisXP »

Hi all,

For the last year I've been slowly creating a new CM0102 Save Game Player Scouter application, purely for my own purposes and as a side project.
Its now at a point where I'd let other people see it, so here it is....
https://github.com/ChrisReganXP/CMScout ... couter.zip

Currently it serves the same kind of "cheat" function that CMScout or the CM Scout Intrinsic apps do, in that they let you see the real player data in your saved games. My vision of what I want this to become is much more of a scouting module so it isn't such a basic view of numbers, but for now that is what it is.

I've tried to include some of the things we know about the match engine, especially the work on in-match attributes and positional penalties by MadScientist. There is more I want to do in this area, and I'll hopefully keep adding over the next few months.
It allows you to use your own weightings if you want, though you currently have to edit the JSON files to do this as there is no interface.
I've used two types of weights/raters:
1) Groupings : Attributes are split into groups (playmaking, wideplay, defending) and there is a basic set of weights that apply for these groups across the board. Each position then has further weights that decide how much that position/role requires that group. E.g, Wideplay group expects high pace and crossing, and it might be 20% of an Attacking Full Back rating but 0% of a Centreback's.
2) Individual : The typical rating approach where every attribute has the full collection of weights and is applied in a more simple manner.

Some screenshots:

Notes:
- I score the intrinsics as 0-255 on a flat scale.
- The app won't let you search with no filters set. If you use a very wide search, it could take ~30s for the results to be returned.
- I desperately need a name that isn't "CM Scout" :lol:

Good work, well done mate!

Would it be easier if you remove the drop down and put all ratings to that empty place ?

And listing by the headers would be good option.

I really don't think that is gonna be possible. How come you have such an old OS?

Do you see any error message that can help work out what the issue is?

I can have a look if you want to send me a save game file?
