Wed 5/16 sim to 12/1

Postby dbemont » Wed May 16, 2018 5:19 am

DeHaven for Arreyano trade fixed

Advanced to 12/1 -- date of rule 5 draft
Arby is complete
Free agency has begun

Html reports not updated

The file is up.

The file for new GMs linked on the Getting started page will be updated within the next half hour.

By Friday, you should be sure that you have protected players for the rule 5 draft
* There are multiple ways to see which of your players are exposed... those minor league players marked with an # on the transactions screen... those players that appear in the draft pool... optional screen under your Front Office page, as demonstrated by Mark here: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=2198
* The only way to protect a player who is exposed is to add him to the 40 man roster.
* You may create room on your 40 man roster by waiving players/putting them on DFA, but of course those players are then exposed to waivers, and must remain on waivers until they clear.
* Leave empty slots on your 40 man roster for any rule 5 picks you intend to make.
* While it is not a violation of the rules to place an additional player on your 40 man roster next sim, you should make every effort to finalize your roster this time.
Too early to make a draft list -- the pool will change a lot
* Offers to free agents may begin.

Friday, I will
* Import but not advance the date
* Put up the file with the rule 5 draft pool visible.

For Monday's's sim:
Create your draft list in-game, if you wish to select any players in the rule 5 draft.
* Remember -- if you place your list into the round 1 interface only, you will draft only one player. If you copy and paste to all rounds, you will draft until your list is exhausted. If you copy and paste your list to just rounds 1,2,3, you will get up to three players.
* It is very important to know that players taken in the rule 5 draft must remain on your major league roster all season.

Monday, I will
* Import and process the rule 5 draft in-game
* Sim to 12/15

Then I will sim one week of free aqency each day through mid-January, at which time I will switch to two week sims until spring training.

Anyone else having trouble updating? Not sure what's up, if it's something new to 19, but I can't find my saved games folder. Wondering if I need to reinstall...

As to trouble updating, several teams have exported, meaning that the file on the server is probably okay. What happening? Does it fail to connect? Freeze? Give you an error message? Seem to complete and then say it is corrupt? Each would imply a different problem.

As to finding the saved games folder, I don't know what the default installation does, because I haven't done that since, well, probably ever. But a user-chosen installation on the E drive places it like this: E:\OOTP 19\data\saved_games\ddb.lg

If you find the saved game folder, one thing you can do to solve the problem for today is to use the link on the Getting Started page off the main site. It has everything you need including the settings file.

Let me know how it goes.

I think there's something funky in my installation; I get the following error message when trying to save: "Error moving league files to the 'auto-save' folder! The auto-save function could not move one or more of the .dat files to the auto-save folder. Please delete the files in the auto-save folder manually to fix this problem."

Did that, but when I try to update in game, I get "Error: could not open archive file." Tried deleting the ddb.lg folder and starting over with a download from the Getting Started page, got the same archive file error message. (Though I am able to save locally without the auto-save folder message, FWIW.)

Does any of that info help with diagnosing the issue?

Here is what I suggest:
1. Change the name of your ddb.lg to something else (rather than delete it).
2. Create a new ddb.lg folder
3. Unzip the contents of this archive into that new folder: www.bemont.net/DogDays12/backups/ddbfull.zip This is the bare minimum, data files and accountsdatagms file.
4. Open the game and do a test export. If it works, go ahead and use it to do your adjustments for Monday's rule 5 draft and export again.
5. Then copy over the other stuff from the previous file (the one you changed the name of). You'll want your messages folder and your news/test folder at least.
Let me know how this goes.
