Editor question

Recommended Posts

Can somebody (from SI) explain exactly what the 'merge database' tap does?

Well, it merges two database (xml) files. Say you added a new player to a club in one file (NewPlayer.xml), and added a scout to the club in another file (NewScout.xml).

What you can do is

Load Database

Load Editor Data -> NewPlayer.xml

Merge Editor Data -> NewScout.xml

Save Editor Data As -> MergedData.xml

If you search for the player's and the scout's names in MergedData.xml, they should both appear. The merger will also make sure that the unique id's don't conflict. So if both the scout and the player had this in their respective xml files:

<integer id="db_unique_id" value="1394631294"/>

one of them is going to get a new ID, e.g.

<integer id="db_unique_id" value="1394631295"/>

Ok thanks, where I'm actually going with this is I wanna know if I can take one DB that I edited and merge it with one edited by another person? So I wanna keep the changes from both... Anybody know if that would work?

Ideally it should work just like I mentioned in my earlier post regardless of who the author of the xml files is. I don't know how the game handles the issue of you and someone else editing the exact same thing. I would imagine one of the changes being ignored as long as we're not talking about Nation Rules. But if you e.g. edit a clubs kits and someone else edits the same clubs finances, it should work fine.

Ok that is sort of what I mean, but just with players... Thanks again for the advice! I'll just have to try it out!
