Can you take a screen shot of the league selected and upload/share the save game? We really need save games right around the time of the crash to see what's going on and have them debugged.

Crashing in late March 2022 with this save: https://www.dropbox.com/s/wt9t58gbvscbo ... 2.sav?dl=0

This is a test version of Pivot (to be 4.8) with prospect generator seeded.

Leagues selected:
Memorial Cup (OHL, QMJHL, WHL)
Czech Tipsport
Czech DHL
Finnish Liiga
Finnish SM-Liiga
DEL
KHL
MHL
SHL
Swedish J20
NLA
Swiss J20
AHL
ECHL
USHL
NAHL
NCAA Frozen Four

Going to retest without prospect generator, same leagues. These are the leagues i have always usually played with and have had minimal issues.

No crash on the next test (April 2022), same setup minus prospect generator, will ask @IAmActuallyAnOtter to do some testing with the same setup.

I suggest sending a copy of the saved game plus database to Riz. There's only so much we can do with testing without going round in circles/losing out minds and I think at that point it's worth dropping an email to Riz.

Seems some of the crash issues have been identified, related to invalid club affiliations.

It's because you are running far too many leagues. The game has an internal limit as to the number of transfer rules settings it can load as the sheer volume of playable leagues we have in the TBL/Pivot Rosters was never envisaged. Hopefully this will be resolved for patch 1.5. In the meantime, only select a relatively small number of leagues - say 10 to maybe 20 max.

The crashes you're encountering are nothing to do with SI Games. These are errors we (as in third parties creating mods in our free time) can sometimes make when setting up playable leagues given their complexity. The crash you're encountering is simply a game limitation rather than a bug per se. If you run the DB which comes with the game, it should run fine.

You can edit the database yourself via the EHM Editor: http://ehmtheblueline.com/editor. However, if players are missing that should be included in the DB I'd love to have you join as a researcher if you would like to address missing details for a specific league! Just reach out to me on Steam or Discord, or send me an email xeck29x @ gmail.com

This might not be the right thread as it crashes before I can even select my team, feel free to move it to the appropriate place.

Database name and version number: Premier Pivot, v 4.9 (Large database)
In-game date of crash: Before I select my team, but right after selecting the detail levels
Any error message displayed: Nothing
Leagues selected as Enhanced: KHL, Finland Liiga, SHL, Memorial Cup (WHL, OHL, QJMHL), NHL, AHL, ECHL, NCAA Frozen Four
Leagues selected as View Only: None
Add key staff (yes/no): No
Disable all extra staff (yes/no): Yes
Disable all extra staff (yes/no): Yes
Add players to playable leagues (yes/no): No
Add extra junior players (yes/no): No
Add players to national team pools (yes/no): No
Retain all teams (yes/no): Yes

I tried with all the mentionned league, except the NCAA Frozen Four and it seems to be working. There might be a bug with one of the NCAA Frozen four leagues

First thing I would try is a simple re-download of the database with a unsubscribe/resubscribe on the Workshop (wait about 60 seconds before hitting subscribe again). I select those leagues as well as a few others in my test sims.

Thanks for the report, will take a look. For the updated part sometimes if you experience this crash it will keep crashing no matter what leagues are selected until you restart your computer, I believe EHM doesn't clear itself completely out of memory when a crash like this happens and it keeps corrupting the game.

Update: Confirmed this selection of leagues as working in the current test DB. Happy to share the test DB with you for testing, just send me a PM or email to xeck29x @ gmail.com or add me on Steam.

Hey, I am a huge fan of TBL and have been using your rosters for ages, I currently am a goalie in the Australian Ice Hockey League and just saw you guys added our league into your latest rosters, I would love to get involved and set up the whole league for you guys with all of the real players as I have been associated with the Adelaide Adrenaline for the past 3 seasons.

Hope to hear from you soon

I have a problem with both TBL Rosters and Premier Pivot Rosters as I can't even start the game (can't pass the initialization). I've followed the instructions and I've tried with only NHL league selected, but game crashes every time.
I've already played EHM for a long time using 1998 TBL Retro Rosters without any issue. Only difference I have it downloaded to my PC.

Try rebooting the computer if possible, sometimes that seems to fix things.

what happened to extra_config file? why it's became allergic to "future_transfer" all of a sudden?

I downloaded latest version of xECK29x's rosters a couple of days ago and decided to add latest signings and extensions.
but for some unknown reason any (even the slightest) change made to .cfg file results in total inability to start a new game.
so I started to delete different blocks from extra_config (injuries, extensions etc.) and it appeared to be "future_transfer" that causes a crash.
if all "future_transfer" are removed then I can start a new game, but if try to put any of FTs back it crashes again. (.cfg can digest approx 10 FTs)

is there any way to fix this?

btw contract_extension only kicks in if player in question is with the main club. so Ville Husso and Niko Mikkola (both AHLs San Antinio) need to be fixed in DB. and Jack Campbell is now in TOR

Yesterday i could create a game and when i load this then everything is fine with this database. but if i create a new one i have no chance.

I also did not change anything on that database. I only had a copy of that where i did some changes but as i couldnt get that database running i did remove this one again. no other changes.
