Hi there!

Is there any graphical editor available for TEM?

Thanks!

hello,

you mean to edit the player & tournament bases ..?
Then no, there's not, but it's not too hard to edit them with a text editor...

Yes, you're right.
But still, maybe I'll give it a go and try to create one :wink:

Hi there!
News:

I'm working on the editor, and so, I've started by parsing the text files.
The good news is I already load and save the TourCategory.ATP and TourCategory.WTA files! :)

Next steps are:

1 - The Tour.ATP.ini and Tour.WTA.ini files;
2 - The Players.ATP.ini and Players.WTA.ini files;
3 - The graphical interface ;)

I'll be in touch! :)

Don't forget the step 3... ;)

Also, when they're missing value, be sure to not add them when u re-write the files. (for example, [Category17] doesn't have a "Wildcard" entry, so the game engine will use an internal default value for it on game loading)

Hi!
Yes, I'm aware of that. Thanks for bringing it up, anyway! :D
I've seen many fields like that (Categories 15 and 16 are great examples) :wink:
I've managed to rewrite the file (almost) just like the original one (apart from field order in each category).

Some questions, though:

1 - Is the field order in each category important? For example, is it important to have "NbSetRound" after "QualifNbRound", or is the field order irrelevant?
2 - When parsing tournaments, I've noticed that the count goes back to 001 when Challengers start, and then back to 001 when Futures start. Is this important for the game loading? Can I have [Tournament001] up to [Tournament340], for example?
3 - Analysing files, what is the difference between TourCategory.ini and TourCategory.ATP.Ini (or the equivalent TourCategory.WTA.Ini)? Do I have to rewrite them both, or just the correspondent one (ATP or WTA)?

Thanks in advance! :D

Hello,

1- nope, the order is not important, but usually, i try to have the order so the same kind of parameters are grouped together
2- in [TournamentXXX] the number is totally ignored ; so I did the couting like this so it's easy to know how many main & secondary tournaments we have
3- TourCategory.ini isn't used anymore since the release of TEM 1.0b (when the women arrived)

Hello all!
I'm very pleased to say that the editor GUI is almost done!

It just needs a few tests, so that everything will be OK, and I should be able to release the first version soon (1-2 weeks, since I only do this on my free time, at weekends).

Cheers!

Hello all!
It's done!!! :D :D :D :D

(Or at least, part of it) ;)

I've uploaded as an attachment the first version of the graphical editor.
It has as many validations as editing the text file itself (being, none), but I think it's easier to edit than the text file.

Features:

- Load and save of the following configuration files:
- Players.ATP.ini
- Players.WTA.ini
- Player Attribute editing

I can guarantee that it's virus safe (though not bug-free) :p
Feel free to comment, give your feedback, etc.

Next steps are:

- Edit all the players' attributes
- Edit Tournaments
- Edit Tournament Categories

I'll be in touch! :)

What path do you select? It keeps saying failed to load Player.WTA ini
