  1. EHM 2004 and 2005 don't work on Windows 10 either (using the various compatibility settings). No doubt this is because of the age of the software. I suspect the only solution is to run Windows XP via a virtual machine.

    Riz said this back in 2016 and I expect this remains the case today:

    New Laptop/PC - Help Needed

    Unfortunately laptops vary significantly when it comes to cooling. My old laptop (a five year old XPS 17) was absolutely hopeless when it came to the fan and it was really annoying if I used anything other than Chrome/Office/etc. Some laptops allow you to change the fan curve (i.e. the speed of the fans relative to the temperature of the CPU) but this can be risky because the CPU will run hotter which can limit its longevity and, at the extreme, damage it. A relatively harmless solution is to undervolt the CPU using ThrottleStop. This reduces the voltage going through the CPU which in turn reduces the temperature (without any performance issues) and this in turn can reduce how much and how often the fans need to run. Manufacturers veer on the side of caution when setting the voltage running through the CPU because each chip varies as to the amount of voltage it needs. So you can usually get away with undervolting a little - but it varies by chip and by laptop. The only risky element is that undervolting a CPU too far will result in instability and crashes (and you might not discover this until several months afterwards). Unless you're up for lots of trial and error and stress testing, the easiest thing to do is to Google whether anyone else has undervolted the same model laptop and what values they used. This is what I did with my Dell and it now runs around 5-10 degrees cooler when running certain resource hungry applications. It's certainly not for people who are uncomfortable tweaking their system, but it is probably the most viable solution if you're looking to get your fans down a bit (assuming that undervolting can reduce the temperature of your CPU far enough in order to reduce the fans). Some more info here: https://www.notebookcheck.net/How-to-Lower-Temperatures-Stop-Throttling-and-Increase-Battery-Life-The-ThrottleStop-Guide-2017.213140.0.html EDIT: Just to add that NotebookCheck is a really useful resource for finding out how noisy a laptop is (they measure the fans of each laptop they review): https://www.notebookcheck.net

    New Laptop/PC - Help Needed

    Yes I have a GTX 1050 in my Dell XPS 15 (i7 7700HQ / 32 gb RAM). The 3D engine runs fine at 4K resolution with High settings. The GTX 1050 is at the low end of Nvidia's current generation of cards - hence why it is much lower than the mid/high end cards like the 1060 onwards. But don't let that put you off because the 10xx generation cards are the first laptop cards to have near desktop quality performance. If you want a 1060 or higher card then you'll find the laptops that have them are much bulkier because of the heat generated by them. There's the MaxQ versions which generate less heat (and fan noise) but keep in mind that these do not have as much power as the standard/non-MaxQ cards.
  6. Is there a changelist of what changed between the last beta release and the full version release?

    Still Supported?

    There hasn't been any misleading. This was what SI said on the day of the original release of the Early Access version (link): The game was in early access for around 8 months and since then it has been developed by Riz in his spare time (just as they said would be the case if the game didn't sell enough).

    Old Forum

    I think it was all merged into this forum and then the oldest stuff was archived. What are you looking for?

    New Franchise

    You can add your own team to a database using the EHM Editor: www.ehmtheblueline.com/editor However, there is no in-game new franchise function.
  10. Archibalduk

    Price Drop?

    The game is sometimes available via the Humble Bundle for around £4: https://www.humblebundle.com/store/eastside-hockey-manager?hmb_source=search_bar Sometimes SEGA put it on offer too.

    Player Backgrounds?

    IIRC I haven't tested this in EHM 1, but this worked for EHM 2007 (and I would expect it to work with EHM 1): http://www.ehmtheblueline.com/wiki/index.php?title=Where_to_install_addons:_EHM_Early_Access#Staff.2FNon-players

    Leagues in old bases

    League rules and structures (i.e. playable leagues) are now database driven (unlike previous versions of EHM which had this information hard-coded). The purpose of the 2006 rule set was simply to allow older databases to run in EHM rather than having to update them to the more modern structures. It takes a lot of work to set up the league structures in the database and so they haven't been added for older databases. So really the older databases are only supported for the purposes of backwards compatibility. You could however add extra structures/playable leagues to the database yourself using my EHM Editor. There's plenty of discussion and tips about adding new leagues here: http://www.ehmtheblueline.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=110&t=17520
  13. A new version of the TBL Rosters (version 9.1) is now available. It can be downloaded via the Steam Workshop or via TBL: http://www.ehmtheblueline.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=77&t=17541 CHANGELIST: Updated league structures for use with the new 2016 ruleset; Re-rated NHL draft prospects; Updated rosters for Canadian Major Junior teams; Updated rosters and additional players added for the Scottish National League; Various additional transactions (as at 12 October 2016); Various additional players and non-players created; Various players re-rated and adjusted; Added some player career histories for players in Denmark; Edited team colours in many playable leagues; and Various data mistakes corrected.

    National Team issue

    From memory, the nicknames for national teams have always been full of these junk values (certainly from EHM 2005 onwards - I haven't checked the EHM 2004 format). The junk values are always the same (i.e. that accented "i" letter). I'm not sure if it is an issue with Neil's third party editor or whether it stems from the original SI databases. Either way, I've added it to my to-do list for the next version of my EHM Editor.
  15. There was a typo in Derek MacKenzie's salary which meant he was earning ten times more than he ought to. A corrected version is now available via Steam Workshop and also here: http://www.ehmtheblueline.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=77&t=17541
