  1. For small files, it's really no hassle to redo the changes in each version of the editor, or most likely import them and they should be fine in most cases. This year was an exception, but nothing a quick find and replace could sort. But for big files, really you need to keep the data outside of the editor. Excel really is the way to go - with a few lookups and data tables you can remake most of what would go into the editor through formulas. And you can more easily go through all of that data and enter any changes than you ever could by going through the editor - in addition, you can a
  2. You can just delete the line in its entirety. However, it does mean that you will have to do a lot of testing in game. Of course, given the state of the editor right now, that's probably preferable but long term once the issues are fixed you should go back to testing in the editor as the features that are there are pretty powerful and allow you to simulate very fast.
  3. Report it to SI if you can;t do it, you should be able to update files through the Editor. Also top work as always, this constitutes one of the must have files. I love seeing the additional history and especially this far back too! Incredible.
  4. I'm pretty certain if you had a thread open in here with a release and advertised a Discord to promote research it would be absolutely fine. I've done that before and it hasn't been an issue.
  5. I don't think it would be possible, the amount of time that goes into those releases (at least in our case) would mean that I'd be limited to one club, there's no way I could cover an entire league. Also being in Wales doesn't help! Plus I'd like to see a lower league database in England that adds a lot of players. I haven't been around for a while so maybe there is. It's a lot of effort to add players with a fair amount of detail and attributes. By this, I mean to say it would be a lot of research only for the players to then move around again. How do you keep on top of it? Having s
  6. This is why we've always argued when we were actively working on EEE for players of the game who liked EEE to get involved with the research. Find out who the head or assistant researchers are. Follow your local club(s) and ensure that the data can be found and added. Obviously right now it probably wouldn't be possible for it to be well done. But once we are out of a global pandemic it will be possible to go and watch Non-League games, find out who the players are, where they play on the pitch etc.
  7. Saving as .fmf (normally and not exporting as xml) should work, although I am somewhat baffled as to why a databace change only xml file won't load in the game - clearly an unintended bug.
  8. I think the season update day is too late for it to be in 2020 season. Try moving it back? I did that and actually got a few errors in your file, so once this is fixed it should hopefully work.
  9. That isn't necessary as it's only masking a problem with the file. How will you know if that league has the correct number of teams? I found that the J1 rules were not set to Flexible Format Rules and was skipping the 2020 season - once I changed this it worked fine other than a further issue with J3 promotion as there is no 2021 J3 league in the current file. Potentially a few other issues but that's normal with a file at this stage
  10. I've updated the file so it no longer needs converting. Just download the new version!
  11. It worked during the beta, it looks like the release of the game broke it somehow. This file works as an xml. I have updated the file and retested it, it now appears to work on the released version of the game. The updated file is in the opening post. Thanks for letting me know that there was an issue!
  12. Thanks Freddie. For now, here is the workaround: 1. Instead of adding an entry, duplicate it. 2. Then, click show rules for and select the item you duplicated. 3. Finally, in the list section, you should see that there are now two entries (you may have to collapse the list to see that there are two entries). 4. Once you make a change that alters the type of list entry it is, it might be in the list of Show Rules For as Other.
  13. It's under review. For now, here is the workaround: 1. Instead of adding an entry, duplicate it. 2. Then, click show rules for and select the item you duplicated. 3. Finally, in the list section, you should see that there are now two entries (you may have to collapse the list to see that there are two entries). 4. Once you make a change that alters the type of list entry it is, it might be in the list of Show Rules For as Other.
  14. Steps to reproduce: 1. Add an existing Nation (it seems to happen with any, so pick England) and convert the Nation Rules to Advanced Rules. 2. Click on List and select Add from the list. This results in the following error: Sadly easily reproducable, it also seems to crash when I select insert. The only workaround for now is to duplicate list entries and make changes from there.
  15. Restart Steam and it should be there. That's what I did and it worked for me.
