You are drawing teams from stage 2. Shouldn't you draw from stage 5?

Hi nxr,

Draw from stage 5 = 3 clubs from first group and 1 from another group but none from 1/4 final.
Perhaps combo team picking rules and linked stages.


EDIT: it's working: "from prev stages seeded"; stage to draw teams from "5"; fate to draw teams from "103".

Thank you very much Alessandro and nxr.

Is it possible to give you the database when it will be finish?

Been looking all over for this one and can't find it.

Is there any way to make a North American league that operates like the NHL, where they can freely sign guys currently under say AHL or ECHL contract (but not with a NHL contract)? Or is this something set in the flags that still show up in the Extra Rules as "--Unknown--(###)" in the editor? I know the NHL has like 7 or 8 of those flags still.

Or is that decided by the league pecking order thing?

The game is still not 100% db driven so I'm sure that there is a good deal of hardcoding.

I take your great release 9.4, fix some mistakes and add:

- division 2 and 3 (rules and structures with your help ;) , some teams)
- cities
- arenas
- affiliations
- few players for moment

I don't want to steal your work :)

If someone is interested I'm currently working on activating another hardcore level - Finnish II-Divisioona. There is still much of work to do cause not all options work properly and sometimes i don't get how they will work but i made a huge progress and 60% of work is done. I focus on draw relegation groups and playoffs. Minor things like correct dates will be changed when I get all draw correct. Now I had a few problems to solve:
- disable duplicate drawing III-Divisioon teams for Playouts (it was fixed with team picking rule "From Prev Stages Split Teams And Ignore Already Picked For Concurent Stages" but then i didn't get all II-Divisioona participates.)
- some playoffs participates draw twice

If someone is wanted to help it will be appreciate. :)

Re: EHM 1 Database & Saved Game Editor

Postby nino33 » Mon May 22, 2017 6:36 am

Greetings!

I'm working on the 1974 database, I'm not having success, hoping someone can help...
I've changed division names, and reduced the NHL to 4 divisions and 18 teams, and I've created and imported the actual 1974-75 schedule...
I've changed things on the Club and the Competition screens...
I've done my best to have playoff structure setup right (I don't understand it well though, and might have errors)

But I'm currently unable to start a game with the database I have (freezes up at Options screen)
Below is the error message I get...anyone have any suggestions regarding what the problem might be/how I might fix it?

As far as I can tell the "NHL Southeast Division" mentioned in the error message is not even in use in the 1974 database

Thanks!

It depends how You start db - from conferences or divisions. Initial stages should be 4 (divs) or xx (conf). Please upload db and I will check.

Me again with another question...

I'm currently looking at the 1979-80 database, and setting it up for a 21 team NHL, and I'm wondering how do I set the playoffs on the Stages screen (Competitions-Rules & Structures-Stages)?

While the League is set up in two conferences, they're meaningless, as of the 21 teams 16 make the playoffs (top 16 by points) and playoffs are 1v16, 2v15, 3v14, etc & they stay like this every round (always most points versus least points, next most versus next least, etc)




IMO 1979-80 is likely a great starting point for "fantasy play/databases" (including using real modern players, but an altered/fantasy league structure) as well as actual historical play, as in 1979-80 the schedule was actually "equal" [21 team league, each team played each other team 4 times (twice at home and twice away) & playoffs were always "most regular season points VS least regular season points"]

How looked NHL in these years? One standing? Conferences or divisions? If it was one standing current QMJHL format will be helpfull. 16 playoff teams and seeded draw might also work. U can also add team picking rule Special sort points after regular season + previous stages seeded.

I checked db and first you had too many divs in NHL schedule template and wrong setup of club IDs. IDs for clubs with 2 confs + 4 divs should be:

1 conf 1 div: 0, 1, 2, 3
1 conf 2 div: 100, 101, 102, 103, 104
2 conf 1 div 200, 201, 202, 203
2 conf 2 div 300, 301, 302, 303, 304.
