MasterCup Problem [when modding TourCategory.ini]

Postby Guest » 24 Jan 2006, 03:04

I have edited by game by the instructions and changed the schedule and everything works fine, except for the year-end MastersCup. All I have done is cange the name to Tour Championships; everything else is copied directly from the origional.

Here are the problems:
-I can always get in, even if I'm ranked in the 200's.
-There are barely any top players playing, mostly between 20 and 80.
-It is no longer a round robin format.


If you could help me out I would greatly appreciate it.


Also, if you do figure this out, I have a few more questions:
How can I make a round robin (like the Masters) for other tournaments? Would it be possible to have a "Masters" for players ranked over 100 or something? Or even if it can't be a round robin, could there be enterance to a tournament that covers for example, the top 8 ranked over 100?

Hello,

you cannot change the name of these categories, in the TourCategory.ini :
- GrandSlam
- TeamCup
- MasterCup

If you want to change them, you have to do it in the file Menu\Lang_English.Txt
Code: Select all
Example, change :
MasterCup   Masters
to:
MasterCup   Tour Championships


Right now, there's no way to have Round Robin for other tournaments, or a masters with a ranking starting at 100.
Why would you like to create such tournament ?

I have changed them using QPed, but they still mess up. About why I want to make a round robin for players over 100, because I watnt there to be a challenger masters or something.

This MastersCup thing is really messed up.

You have to come back 1 or 2 weeks before the masters, after you put everything in order in the TourCategory.ini .
If it's really messed up, try to begin a new game, to see if it fixes it or not.

Ok thank you, it eventually worked, but to continue our discussion I had some more questions:

-Do you think it would be possible for you to make it possible to have a round robin for other tournaments? I was thinking about how this could work; where is the template for the MasterCup format? Couldn't that be duplicated and modified to meet other parameters?

-Also, is there any way to add to the TourCategory a line saying "WorstPlayer = #" like "BestPlayer" (I mean would you be able to make that)?


I know this is alot but I aprreciate all of your help. This is one of the greatest things I have ever come upon and I wish to use it to it's full potential!

Hello,

1) unfortunately, adding round robin to other tournaments is not as simple than a copy/paste... :?
And now, I really don't have time to do something like this.
But maybe it's possible to add a minimum ranking to the current Masters, I'll have a look for the next update.

2) It's not possible to have a "worst player" parameter in a tournament : it'd make the tournament with empty slots, if done by the current process.

Ok thanks alot for your help. Could there be a minimum ranking for any other tournaments? Where is the data for the MasterCup format coming from (how can it be accessed)? Sorry for all the questions, but I love this game :) !

Hello,

there's already a minimal ranking; for Challengers, it's :
BestPlayer = 150
But it's not strictly enforced. When there are not enough players to enter in the tournament draw, then players ranked up to BestPlayer / 2 (so 75 in this case) could enter it.

About the Masters, everything that is not in the .ini is in the program itself, so cannot change anything easily... ;)

Ok thanks. I guess I can't edit everything :) . Also, I meant "minimum" ranking, meaning that players have to be above a certain ranking to enter it (or something like that).

Ooops, sorry I understand in the wrong way ! ;)

But actually, I already answered to this question earlier in this topic :
"2) It's not possible to have a "worst player" parameter in a tournament : it'd make the tournament with empty slots, if done by the current process"
