I had this after my first attempt with the editor when I loaded a league that had [!!] next to it. It initialized the DB then crashed when it started to save.
Several issues from my first run (wish I could post a teaser of the standings screen from my 16 team 2 division 1972-73 NHL to show it wasn't all a loss , but photobucket doesn't like me tonight.) Some of these I'm quite content with an answer of "yes it's possible", and I'll go fight the battle (or even "we don't know", and I'll go fight the battle).
1- Has anyone seen the US start date go haywire? It's a 1972 DB, the "early start" is July 1972, and the "normal start (or whatever it's called) is December 1970 (!).
2- Has anyone worked on the Olympics? Needless to say the Olympics in 1976 looked very different in Hockey vs. 2010 or 14, and I'd like to make the schedule/format as realistic as possible. Also, is it possible to exclude NHL/WHA players from the Olympics? More than anything curious about what has been done here because it could potentially mean reworking the WHA/NHL schedules for an Olympic break.
3- NHL Draft/other drafts- On the historic Vein, it was pretty much (with some minor exception to the rules) only 20 year olds and higher allowed in the NHL draft, and a LOT more rounds in the early 70's- has anyone edited anything here yet? (Side note- adding drafts such as the waiver/intra-league draft and the WHA draft?)
4- In a potential winner in "Most random playoff award" goes to the IHL in 1973. Short version- the 2nd and 3rd place team in each division played each other in the "pre-playoffs" in best of 5 series, with those two winners playing a best of 5 in the semifinals. The two division winners faced off in a best of 7 in the other semifinal, then the finals best of 7 between the winners. I can't wrap my brain around how to get the two "pre-playoffs" winners to play each other. Any suggestions/thoughts?
Go team. Now that Pandora's box is opened, I'm really hoping this actually makes my 1972 DB easier to finish since I don't have to fit all the leagues in a 2006 box (and I can ignore the really low minor leagues I would've needed for the UHL and such).
