Sorry for the delay! Here is it, v3.21!

Logo Updates:
- No longer maintaining my logo pack, I have been collaborating closely with Dani9 on a newly supported logo pack. Please download his logo pack going forward: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/ ... earchtext=

*** FUNDEMENTAL CHANGES ***

- There are now two .db files included in both the Steam Workshop download and the off-line .zip download. The default (database.db) which is loaded into the game has an export of IAmActuallyAnOtters generated prospects added to it to create 100+ years of deep NHL drafts from all IIHF countries. There is a second .db file included which does NOT have these prospects added, this is the DB you should use if you plan on doing a fantasy draft as the added prospects cause issues with that game setting due to the negative birth date values! If you want to use this DB just rename it to database.db in the Steam Workshop folder (should be located in: *\Steam\SteamApps\workshop\content\301120\1428241604)

*** Additional Instructions if you start with a Fantasy Draft ***


- Also look in the extra_config.conf file (open it in Notepad or a similar text editor), there is a section I have marked that you need to remove prior to starting the fantasy draft, this is for transfers that will be occurring on 1.7.2019 for 2019-20, if you do not remove these transfers they will be transferred to their real-life clubs regardless if you drafted them or not!

Still getting some intermittent reports of crashing after the NHL All-Star game, I'm looking into it, but try going back as far as possible and simming through it. If this does happen please let me know which DB you were using (default or no prospects) and what leagues were selected.

Wanted to share this here, I got asked "What are my future plans for v3?"

My thought process right now is you will likely get 2 more updates to the standard DB out before July 1st. On or just before July 1st I will release the 'final' version of v3 as well as an additional special version to hold my fellow GMs over until late August/early September for v4 (2019-20):

1) Normal DB w/ generated prospects added [current default db]
2) Normal DB w/ out generated prospects [alternative db]
3) A "Free Agent Frenzy" version of both above DBs

The FAF version is something I have been doing for my hockey games since when I used to play and create rosters for the NHL series on PC (if you remember me from CyberNHL, DoubleMinorDownloads or NHLDepot I was EverclearKiD29), I will drop all UFA/RFA players across all the major professional leagues to the free agent pool and will bump up the salary cap to $86m in those DBs, it's a lot of fun!

Currently having an issue uses this version of these rosters. My game crashes after I try to start a new game with these rosters. I select these rosters, then select my options and the game crashes at the "Creating Shortcuts" portion of loading the game.

I have tried various things to fix this. I have unsubscribed from these rosters and re-subscribed and it still doesn't work. I have removed the database without the additional 100 prospects from: *\Steam\SteamApps\workshop\content\301120\1428241604 - but all that did was take away the ability of selecting this roster.

Do you know anyway of fixing this? I may just be over looking something.

Sometimes you just have to try multiple times before it'll work. If you haven't already, try playing with no extra teams or no extra players added and see if that helps.

Thanks, I finally got it to work. It took close to 15 tries but it worked.

Good to know! It's set to 20 PIM right now for the game misconduct, so you are saying change that to 14?

Yea if you are using the version with the added prospects it definitely adds an all-around layer of minor stability issues due to the size of the DB (20+ mb added). Id like to know what leagues you selected and the settings which worked. Selecting all leagues definitely will not work.

FYI

This is regarding 3.2 and not 3.21
I've been doing some testing recently, and using 3.2 I've currently gone 30 seasons and I've now run into a repeating error message (clicking OK repeatedly does allow one to continue)

On October 25th 2048 when I try to continue I get the following error message...

ROSTER_MANAGER::compile_roster() - array overrun

I was using a Full database. For leagues selected I had the NHL & AHL + Major Junior, the USHL & the NCAA + the Elite Leagues for the Czech Republic, Russia, Finland, Sweden, Slovakia, Switzerland and Germany


I advanced from October 5th to October 8th by clicking Continue and then (once each day, in the Evening) repeatedly clicking OK before advancing to the next day; I counted the number of clicks the last time and it was 151 clicks before I could advance

Based on that count it sounds like its throwing the error simming each game which is why its allowed to continue to run. Looks like it's a game bug more so then any specific DB as it's been reported in a couple of different places, including the SI forum (without a reply from Riz). I'd suggest scrapping the save :(.

It sounds like a team has too many players on its roster. I'd suggest sending the save (and the most recent rolling save if you have one) to Riz so that he can have a look.

There isn't game misconduct for fight... I can't work with editor so much, but that penalty is 2+2 penalty minutes and 10 minutes misconduct penalty

Got it, I think I can just remove the misconduct and keep it 14 min PIM.
