.dat exporter and importer (will allow editing a dynasty)

Recommended Posts

This is great stuff. I was able to set up my Reds dynasty with the injured players (LaRue, Wilson, about 15 other minor leaguers) on the DL, for the appropriate times, intead of stashing them on the A-ball team.

Nice find.

Thanks for testing it out. I'm glad it works.

I did notice a small error with unknown1 in the extra.dat file. I accidentally used the value for unknown2 for both unknowns in the importer. This is already corrected and will be in the next version. Also, I have already added pitcher's current stamina to the extra.dat file. It seems to be working. The problem with Edwin Almonte's name seems to have went away by itself after I restarted my computer.

I hope to have a new version out by Thursday morning. Besides what I just mentioned, I intend to export/import tstat.dat, as well as all of the last year's stats files. Also, I will import the minor league fielding stats differently, so that the order of the players in the files doesn't matter.

OK, maybe I'm an idiot, but I can not get this program to work for me. I followed all the steps (about 100 times) and keep getting an error message that say's " Run-time error 9 Subscript out of range". It always happens when MVPedit reads "Setting pitching attributes" in the lower left hand corner. What am I missing or doing wrong?

Read what I wrote in the last paragraph of my last post on page 10. To fix the problem, look through your pitcher.dat file with notepad. If you find any players with a lot of extra space after their last name, erase it. You will have to do this for all of the pitching stats files also.

For me it only happened with Edwin Almonte's name. I thought the problem went away after I restarted my computer, but I'm getting the error again. I will try to fix it for my next version. I'm now planning on releasing the next version on Friday or Saturday. I ran into a little problem, and decided that I need to do the team.dat file before the tstat.dat file.

Okay. I think the problem is fixed now. Attached are the latest builds of the programs. The new exporter fixed the "Edwin Almonte name problem" for me. I still don't know for sure why it happened.

This build of the exporter also exports pitcher's current stamina in the extra.dat. And it exports tstat.dat.

This build of the importer fixes the small problem I had with the unknown values, and it imports pitcher's current stamina.

Edit: attachment removed. New latest build available in my new post

Thanks again...this is amazing.

Has anyone been able to get in touch with RGlass about possibly working the extra.dat into his editor? I mean it works just fine, but if we could do it all in MVPEdit, it would be a little easier.

I just emailed him about it. I'll let you know when I hear back from him.

Does anyone know if there is a file where it starts with the 2006 season with everything ready to go? That would be awesome. Someone sent me to TC.com but they don't have a link to download them

You need to register on that site before you can download the files.

I'm having a slight issue with pitcher.dat using the latest version. I don't think this happened before. Basically, the export of pitcher.dat is putting a couple of random characters into the player's last name. Not every player is affected, but most are. The effect is that every pitcher affected has 0/50 for stamina, instead of the proper number.

Can anyone repro this with the latest build?
