[A folder has been included within the editable version of 1.1 that includes the two files needed to correct Competition/Awards History and version v0.4.1xp4 of the Updater so those that might want to edit the database and then correct the Competition/Awards History can do so. IMPORTANT - the first step in the process is to use the current Updater to delete the Competition/Awards History & then use the older Updater and two files to input the Competition/Awards History.]

Current version of the database (v1.1) 20 September 2016
The 1998 TBL Database is a roster update for Eastside Hockey Manager 1 (released in 2015); it is in EHM07 format with the correct files included so the user can Import the database into EHM1.
The 1998 databases endeavors to recreate the late 1990s era of hockey; this write-up adds to the history/changelists provided with previous versions
The database is no longer “NHL centric” but is now truly a worldwide database! The database features authentic teams, players and staff from the NHL, AHL, ECHL, Major Junior and European/Russian Leagues as well! The database no longer includes “modern players/staff” and a huge amount of detail has been added to the historical players.
The database includes player histories and authentic future prospects from 1998 up to the present!). In addition to the historical players from North American Leagues there are also historical players for the Elite Leagues in Austria, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland (+2 lower leagues), France, Germany, Italy, Norway, Russia, Slovakia, Sweden (+2 lower leagues) and Switzerland too.
As well teams in most leagues were reviewed and corrected for 1998 and affiliations were set. The Staff are correct/historical for the NHL and Major Junior. THOUSANDS of players have been edited! Player Roles, CA/PA and Attributes!
A worldwide database is an enormous task! The work is ongoing; there are many tasks that still need completion, but most primary/relevant tasks have been completed. And not everything is yet editable! So as in the past with EHM, with EHM1 there are some things we can’t change (like the number of teams in leagues), and we’re only able to use the 2006 rule set. FYI we are hopeful that we’ll be able to make these edits in the future.
Draft information is "mostly correct" & Team Records are still a work-in-progress (NHL "team" Team Records are correct, "player" Team Records are correct for 13 of 26 teams); Awards History (deleting post 1998 Awards History) is not possible at this time
You should click/select "recalculate runtime data" when you import the database into EHM1
The use of a Full Database is strongly recommended (to ensure future prospects show up)
The use of Maximum Detail is recommended over Quick Sim
For the best “retro experience at this time” it is recommended at startup
- enable Fog of War
- select/check "Disable All Extra Staff
- select/check "Disable All Extra Players
- select/check Retain All Teams
Here's a screenshot of the recommendaed settings for an NHL game
There is an "underdatabase" of over 20,000 players and staff that has already been added (from a blank 1998 database, and Add all possible players/staff/juniors was selected, and then the EHM Assistant was used to export this database.....this database was then edited specifically for use with the 1998 database and then imported into the 1998 database for use as the "underdatabase" that is needed to give EHM it's depth)
So there is no need to add players or staff to the 1998 database!
At this point the number of playable leagues is limited to North American, Swedish and Finnish Leagues
This is not currently editable, though we hope it will be possible to edit in the future
Thanks to Riz and SI for the game itself! Initial credit to Lazion (the initial creator of the 1998 database), and then the last update/version was by jhcobpb (CJ) with support from nino33 and archibalduk…..and now we have a slightly longer list!
Version 1.0 of the 1998 database is really a true rebuild from the ground up...A HUGE thanks for all their efforts in creating the TBL 1998 DB version 1.0 go to TBLers jhcobpb, nino33, Manimal, archibalduk, marksbros6 and sao.phim
While there is more to do, an enormous amount of work has been put in and this is IMO the best retro EHM database yet!
