A copy club feature would be nice on the club editing screen, would make creating new junior clubs much faster!

Is it possible to edit an affiliation of a save file rather than the database?

I'm hoping to release the next version of the Editor by the end of April; ideally before then if I can. I've been concentrating on making it easier to edit league rules and structures. It's probably the most complex work to date and so progress has been fairly slow but steady.

No I don't think it is. The data is stored in a manner which cannot be processed by the Editor.

Be very careful when importing any .ehm files containing league structures. There is an issue with the Editor either importing the structure as a duplicate or overwriting the wrong structure. I need to look into the cause but I can guess what the issue is. I'm hoping to include a fix in the upcoming Editor release.

Hi Archibalduk,

First great work on this editor.
But I have a question, you can't correct the length of a contract in Saved game mode?
I have some players in Frederikshavn White Hawks with wrong contract length.

When I go in to the editor and correct their contract then it is still wrong in the game after saving it in the editor and reload the game in EHM.

That's correct - you cannot edit contracts in saved games.

It really depends. It's not that I don't want to; it's because the saved game structure is completely unknown. So it means trying to figure out what a lot of hexadecimal code means, much of which is impossible to decipher. However, if Riz adds the full contract details in the database (i.e. the various clauses and year by year salaries) then this might allow the same data to be editable in the saved game. I recall Riz mentioning here or on Twitter that it was on his list for a future patch.

Stupid question probably but I don't know why my saved game show up? Like, I can load it but none of the players or anything are there to edit?

Alright nevermind I figured that out but now I'm having an issue where it says, "unable to read draft history"? All I did was create a new player for the game.

xECK29x - I finally found time to debug your Norwegian spreadsheet crash. There was a bug in the Editor when importing player/non-player spreadsheets where you try to retire a non-existent person. Instead of flagging this as an error, it was trying to retire a non-existent person which resulted in a crash. The person in question was Shane O'Brien. I have fixed this in the upcoming Editor, meaning that you will get an error instead of a crash.

Oh great! I wouldn't even think of that but it makes sense!
