This is the main place to go for new information after each sim. Anything else that happens, it will be referenced in the sim report.

Sat 5/12 offseason sim to 11/12 and move to OOTP 19

Postby dbemont » Sat May 12, 2018 7:23 am

Twin Falls signs scout Ferran Rimel for, $850,000 per year

I have simmed to November 12 and put up a new file in OOTP 19.


Directions:

1. Open
OOTP 19 and check the version number at the bottom of the splash screen. It should read Version 19.5 Build 49. If it does not, you should close the game and apply the patch: http://www.ootpdevelopments.com/board/s ... p?t=288930

2. Choose "Import OOTP 18 Game" from the the splash screen menu and follow the directions on the screen. (Give it time. At least on my machine, it looked like it had frozen, but when I came back 20 minutes later, it had completed.)

3. Open the league file.


4. Update the game file, so that it the game date is November 12.

5. Make any changes necessary: arby offers, contract extensions, etc.

6.
Export, even if you have made no changes... That is how I know things are working for you, and you are still with us.

If for any reason this does not work for you, as an alternative, you can start fresh. Create a new ddb.lg folder in the saved games folder of OOTP 19, and unzip the contents of this download into that folder.

Please post any technical issues in this thread.

Tentative schedule, assuming no delays due to technical problems:

By Monday morning, you need to:
* Adjust arby offers, as you see fit. (last chance)
* Make any last efforts at contract extensions. (last chance)
* Begin to prepare roster for rule 5 draft.

Monday morning, I will advance to Dec. 1 and free agency

By Wednesday morning
* Begin free agent offers
* Set your roster for the rule 5 draft
(Too early to make a meaningful rule 5 draft list)

Wednesday, I will
* Import
* Put up a file showing the rule 5 draft pool

By Friday morning, you should
* Create your in-game draft list

Friday I will
* Import and run the rule 5 draft
* Run a week of free agency

Then sim one week each morning until mid-January.

Things look mostly good to me. I'm up and running with OOTP 19, but I seem to be getting a -201 connection error when I export (grrr...)...

anything I should try?

also noticed that the completed trade wasn't processed - but altogether things look pretty good - Thanks, Don. I know these changeovers are pretty dicey things!

Updated to v19 fine and exported.

Yes, HR/StB trade not processed.

a PSA for people who have not had a league upgraded to v19 before. Scouting results may look a bit different than it did in v18, there were some adjustments made to how things are calculated. Some of your players may not look as good in v19 as they did in v18, especially according to the "Star" ratings. Rest assured that the underlying talent of your players haven't changed, I did much checking during Beta on this.

I currently have working exports from Denton, Greenwood, Kingbury, and St. Bernard.

If you get an export error, the first thing to try is copying the accountsdata file from 18 over to the settings folder of 19. (with the game closed)

Sorry about not including the trade.

no worries on the trade, Don. Copying the accountsdata_gms.dat file worked like a charm. You should have an export from Hood River now.

Thanks!

I downloaded the new file through the link that you posted, it opens just fine, but when I try to export, I get Could Not Upload File. Error - 201. Connect Error.

I've tried it three times, keep getting the same message.

Try copying the accountsdata file from the 18 settings subfolder into the 19 settings subfolder (with the game closed).

I tried, same message. I forgot about the change and tried to download the newest league file in OOTP18 (didn't work obviously), not sure if that made a difference somehow.

Ok, should be back up and running now.

Been scrambling the last few weeks with the end of our semester and some other real life stuff.

Still looking from exports from:
Blackwood
Jackson City (has been in touch)
Kendall
Murray Creek
Red Willow
Redsand (trying to resolve problems)
Stratford
Twin Falls

So, tomorrow morning, I will sim just one day and process the trade that I overlooked. I'd rather not rush into crucial things like arby and the rule 5 draft without everyone having a chance to get their team sorted.

I have not yet purchased OOTP19. I am still undecided as of today. With that said, I think it would be best for the league for me to bow out. I don't want to hold things up while I make a decision.

I'm not going to have a chance to patch up my version of OOTP19 and get the league file installed by tomorrow, but I don't mind if we sim ahead without me. I took care of all the offseason things I needed to do in the last OOTP18 export. I should be able to get everything going by Wednesday, and I'll confirm that things are working for me when I do.
