How do I handle realignment? I started a league in 1969, and I'm almost to 1977 with the expansion ading the Mariners and Blue Jays, and I'll need to realign the Brewers and Rangers accordingly, and I can't see where to do that...

Every time I try to start a league with the database it crashes. I have patched to the latest version of OOTP. The game will crash once it gets to the point of "loading players".

I didn't know I was supposed to use "master". I've been using the "teams" file when starting a historical league. Will this cause any problems?

Start up of Historical League problems

I tried using the method described and all I got was real pitchers put in as position players, Thus Randy Johnson was listed not as a pitcher but a catcher. None of the rosters has any pitchers on them, even though all the imported players were real pitchers. The team names were all right and the pitchers match up to their real teams, but as position players not pitchers. I used Lahman as described. I am using the mac version. Can you help me?
Thanks Jeff

I am having the same problems, but, I used the DH rule for both leagues so I have lots of pitchers who are listed as DH's

Did you get any postion players? All I got were pitchers as position players. As for instance Lance Berkman did not appear. Could this be a bug in the mac version.

No, No position players at all, It's been really frustrating...I've tried to import several times and it's been a bust!

I think it would be a great idea to have a forum just for us "Mac" guy so we'd have a place to get HELP!!!

Game Setup > League Setup > Action > Edit League Structure. Can only be done in preseason, not offseason. Add, delete, move teams, etc. Also check names/Lahman team ID once teams added or moved, if Lahman ID changes.

Choice of DB?

Has anyone done a historical replay with Garlon's DB? I am having a problem getting players to go directly onto teams that I thought they should show up on. I've checked the boxes and the path and disabled the ammy draft. Any insight would be helpful.

Thanks!

JP

Ok I'm frustrated, I tried to do a historical league and tried to import a historical draft after the 1st season, every time it starts to create the draft pool it gives Fail to import from database or something like that. Doesn't matter which year I start from, be it 1901 to 2004.

I tried -

1. Manually typing in the path. Which is on my machine is F:\ARODGARLON and pressed enter.

2. Re downloaded the file still had the problem.

3. Used the Lahman DB and still have the same problem.

I'm so annoyed atm...! Anyone run into this same problem or know how to fix this?

I had the same problem as you when OOTP first came out. The culprit was your #1. After I moved the DB to the directory that is explained in my tutorial, it worked fine. Seems OOTP won't look anywhere else, even if you type the path in. Try putting the DB in the default location as per step #2.

Are the Team abbreviations correct as per my Chronology? (see link in my sig)

Bruce,

I use your Chronology and I've recommended it numerous times. But, where I seem to be having a problem is BEFORE 1901. Thanks for getting back to me.

Hmm, afraid I can't be of much help prior to 1901. I've never played an historical league prior to 1901. You can check the Lahman DB though to find out what the abbreviations were for each year. That would be a good place to start anyway. If that doesn't solve your problem post back here and we'll see if we can't figure it out.

Just out of curiousity, did you start with a fictional league for the first season and then start trying to import from the DB?
