Reduction in player count when using custom database set up


Recommended Posts

So, wasn't sure which forum to put this in, but I've encountered an odd bug when setting up a new game.

So I'm planning to start a game in the Welsh leagues with a few other leagues loaded. As per the screenshot below, a large database size gives me an approximate player count of 33,360.

However when using the custom database options to add all players of welsh nationality and those based in Wales, whilst still keeping a large database, the player count drops to 30,490. This seems to be constant irrespective of database size selected. It seems that it defaults to the small database count.

Don't know if anybody else has noted this? Don't recall it being an issue in the Beta?

when i change from small to large, the player count remains the same

frustrating as first day, i can't even set up a file how i'd like

p.s, nothing to do with the huge database added. this problem happened in beta, happens when i also delete the huge database from my files

Somebody has seen fit to move this post to the database and research forum, which I assumed was just for data issues. But nevertheless if anyone here can give some feedback on the above issue all the better!

A simpler way to illustrate it is the following. If I set a game up with just English League 2 and above with a large database, I get an approximate player count of 14,160.

Yet when I go to advanced options and select large database, and add all players of Irish nationality (for example), the player count drops to 10,480.

It seems that using the advanced database set up, sets the base database size to small, no matter what size you select.

Can anybody else reproduce this issue? Or does anyone have a workaround? Because at present it is preventing me from starting a lower league save.

Cheers :thup:

any news on this perhaps? Is it even logged?

probably not to both questions. its mad frustrating. its been posted 4 times now and each time its being ignored...maybe we have to tag one of the developers or something because it seems to be just ignored

bumping again, I hope I'll get an answer.

Looks like the only solution is to just keep posting this until they finally answer. I mean, i know it’s been seen, it’s also being ignored which is hugely frustrating

I think SI staff should see it if they're tagged in the thread... @Christopher Lewis @Glenn Wakefordis this being looked into?

I've had a check and I can see these are issues that have been logged on our system. I believe these issues above are with a coder at the moment. Thanks guys.
