    Cloete and Broncoman are pretty useful Photoshoppers.

    I've fixed the ethnicities/contracts bug - nothing but rank bad programming - trying to work on career histories now.
    So we can expect a new database update minus the bugs?

    I have updated the databases with the aid of the new Magpie editor. This means I've been able to make bowlers skill up to a max of 125 (? ish) instead of 111 and the ethnicity of the players should now be about right.

    Only problem is that when you clear a player's history with the new editor, you get an error message - so until this is fixed I won't post my update as there are a few new players I want to put in and a few old ones I want to replace - like O'Connor and Penn of NZ, Saeed Anwar of Pakistan and the likes of Jonty Rhodes and Daryl Cullinan from SA.

    Don't trust any of the player history bits - they break easily.

    Hey, Kentlad, great stuff this, u too neil, just wondering, with this update, are u gonna fix their stats? With players like Callum Thorp and other new players, they don't have any stats at all, but they do have stats in real life....i'm just wondering, if u don't i don't mind...u've still done a great job.

    To avoid errors, instead of resetting all, just press the reset buttons next to each stat.

    That way histories clear without errors.

    Players Histories

    For all of the players I have added, I have simply cleared their history as it takes AGES to enter the information correctly, and to find out the info in the first place!
    I did it for a couple of players but it literally takes about 20 mins per player probably!

    So...if any of you want tohave a crack then be my guest!

    My latest update together with ethinicity corrections and a few new players is attached.

    This update works fine, but it seems that you won't be able to edit the data again. It seems that if you change any of the player's ethnicity, then you can only save the data once - see what I mean by opening up this data in Mapgie and then immediately saving - you'll get an error message :-(

    That said, the update does work in the game :-)

    dunno if this is just me, but i've had some problems with the latest update.

    I started with Hampshire, and i would drop a player, and he would dissapear. Then i would drop some others, and the first one would re-appear, but the others i dropped would the disappear. like the sqaud kept going of the screen... this was on the team selction page.

    Also, some players appear in the team selection page, but not in the sqaud list, like M Munday for Hampshire....Also, with new players, when u check their stats, instead of going to their page, it just goes to the top of the list, not to their page...

    Like i said, i dunno if this is just a problem with my ICC or sumtin else.
    Anyway, just thought i'd let u know...
    apart from this, it looks awesome, great job mate..

    Yeah I don't know about this problem of players being "lost" from your squad if you drop them - I hadn't noticed it. One for Neil I think

    I've played for a couple of seasons at International with NZ and am quite pleased with the sides that the computer selects - except for the fact that James Foster gets into the England team, along with Owais Shah. I really don't know why - apart from this default squads issue.

    Another thing, I made Vettori about a 115/116 bowler but he's now a world beater and seems to take 5 wickets every innings - so I'm having a rethink about making spinners this good. I haven't played India in a test yet but they seem pretty unbeatable with both Kumble and Harbhajan!
