Step-by-step instructions for editing ICC with Magpie
There's some bat files i made a while ago so you dont need to use msdos
Just re-installed and i still cant get rig of the -"is an invalid integer" error when i try and load the database.. that's even after i have changed the regional settings.
never had this trouble before.
Ok, I'm a complete newbie to this, so please bear with me. (Although I have to say, I do consider myself a fast learner... )
Anyway, can someone please walk me through the setup again? I can't wait to get going on ICC, but I'm having a problem figuring it all out.
I've got ICC 2002 - if someone can point me in the right direction from the start and give me the easiest installation tips I'd be forever grateful.
hi i am too also a newbie but i have icc 2001 is it possible i can edit it like icc 2002
im sorry if this question has already been asked
yes i knw they are 2002 datbases but what im saying is can i use them for 2001????Originally Posted by The Baconator
somebody help me how do i encrypt and decrypt
There are several posts on the first pages explaining.Originally Posted by jazz
Failing that, add me to MSN.
1. Download convdb.exe
2. Unzip this file
3. Copy the unzipped file into the folder you have installed ICC in (most likely to be C:\Program Files\Empire Interactive\International Cricket Captain 2002)
4. Download http://gosh.ex.ac.uk/~nsp201/msvcr71d.dll and http://gosh.ex.ac.uk/~nsp201/msvcp71d.dll
5. Copy these two files into the directory C:\Windows\System32\
6. Download Magpie
7a. Copy magpie.exe from the folder you downloaded it into
7b. Open the folder you have installed ICC in (should be C:\Program Files\Empire Interactive\International Cricket Captain 2002)
7c. Paste magpie.exe into this folder.
8. Download http://gosh.ex.ac.uk/~nsp201/encrypt.bat and http://gosh.ex.ac.uk/~nsp201/decrypt.bat
9. Save/move these into your Magpie folder
10. Start Magpie, don't close the MS DOS Prompt yet.
11. Click File -> Set ICC Location
11b. Select dataT.db in the ICC folder, and click OK.
12. Click File -> Open.
13. Begin editing at your heart's content (but player histories are very unreliable)
14. Click update after you've finished editing a player/team/whatever.
15. When finished, click File -> Save.
16. Run ICC
If you get the Invalid Integer error
Then your databases are corrupted. So download KentLad's update and restore them
If you have ICC 2000 or 2001
Download KentLad's DB first up. Actually, download it whoever you are as it's great.
The above updated walkthrough should work - if you have further problems add me to MSN (etc)
Update for everyone - I finish exams tomorrow, so I'm going to try to sort out the player histories and contracts bugs.

I'm still getting the Invalid integer error even with the fresh origanl database..
regional settings have been changed, don't know what else it could be..
Try KentLad's DBs.Originally Posted by Eclipse
You can use them for 2001, but like Neil said, I'd recommend you download KentLad's database.Originally Posted by jazz
hmm, i get the invalid integer thingy when trying to save...... on a fresh install...
patched upto date, untouched db.... all i've done is change a few figures with the lancs squad (made smethurst pants, law english, Flintoffs first name shortened to andy).... no major db mess up stuff....
I'm using the newest version (with contracts/ethnicity fixed)
like i said, it shouldnt be the db..... these ones have come from a fresh install, never edited.... I've not had this problem before....
Dunno if its the new editor or not, so i thought i'd post and let you's know anyway.
Oh, and i know you say d'l kentlads update, which i grant is very good, but i'm not a fan of making the players 3 years older without the ability to update stats either (in fact i'm not a fan of making them 3 years older at all, defeats the point of playing the 1st 3 seasons really)... so rather than whinge about his db, i'll applaud him for it but unfortunatly say its not for me i'm afraid....
