Hello anaum91,

you have too many questions in one place to tell them apart.
It is not clear what you do and what you don't understand.
I thought you have created several modifications like this so you should know most of it.
And a bit of practice with the data files contents should be enough to understand.
Just try the changes and see for yourself how the game recognizes them.

The example I have given should be pretty much functional (from the playing years perspective). And it would look the same for men and women tour.
Also I don't understand what is the problem with years overlapping, the example has it all.
If your career starts in 2030 lasting till 2046 and you have the player base only until 2040, it should be obvious that from 2041 on you have no players available.
You cannot play from 2012 till 2090 in one single game, you can only have the player base for all those years as long as it contains max. 32'000 players.
But you should still keep in mind that you need enough players for each year (at least 1000 in standard setup) for the game to be playable.

Please write the specific questions about what is not clear to you separately and I'll try to answer as best I can.
Focus on one thing at a time and not on changing everything in both tours at the same time.
It will be easier to move on, this way we will get nowhere.
How many players do you actually need ? We could start from that number.

marco,
I'd need some saved games to check the "(0)" issue, preferably 1 before & 1 after.

Sure you can, actually you can use any text editor you like.
Regarding the questions, if you still have any just write them each in a separate row of a single post to be clear and understandable and number them.
Just in case we have misunderstood each other it is not necessary to write each question in a separate post ;-)
I'll try to help as best I can, I just need to understand what is the specific issue in each problem (or uncertainty) you have.

Ok, got your saved games & fixed the (0) issue.
You can download the game again (no version change).

anaum91,

your career can only be 16 years at maximum and it is shown exactly when you start a new game.
In your case it should say 2012-2027 (i.e. start of 2012 until the end of 2027).
As far as I know it currently cannot be longer.

Regarding your second question, I'm not sure if I understand it right.
The start year doesn't have anything to do with ATP five set match score problem.
You can have any start year you like.
And five set match score should be OK in the last version.
Just download it and install and all the matches will be correctly scored from that moment onward.
However all the past five set match results will retain their incorrect score so only the new match scores will be fixed.

change players from 1990

Postby anaum91 » 25 Aug 2012, 15:08

hey Manutoo, i had delete some players from 1990 and change them to 2011, so my question is what is this mean charecter 11 and charecter 12, because my players from 2011 has charecter and when i played their rankings is not correct and they lost many matches. It think the 1990 players body and power is old, because i changed all players data from 1990 so they starts in 2011 and change their names and birth to the real junior players from the real world in ATP and WTA AND ITF. Can you help me about the this problem please. :D

Often the 1st year the players have problem to enter tournaments, and if they do & lose in qualies they don't get any points.

When you create new players, where are you getting theirs information, how is you do, are delete some of the retired players data, and replace with new player data or are only creating them.

i hope you can help me :D
