I've set up a 32-team league, two subleagues, each subleague with 4 divisions of 4 teams each. Here's the schedule I'm trying to generate:

Each team plays the other three teams in its division: two 3-game series at home, two 3-game series away. (36 division games total)


Each team plays the other 12 teams in its own subleague (i.e., all four teams in all three of the other divisions): one 3-game series at home, one 3-game series away. (72 subleague games total.)


Each team plays all 16 teams in the other subleague: one 3-game series. (48 interleague games total.)

The generator gets the division and interleague games right ... but not the subleague games.

Instead of scheduling 6 games against all of the other 12 subleague teams, the generator picks one of the other three divisions, and schedules 18 games against those 4 teams. (And, zero games against the teams in the other two divisions in the subleague.)

It doesn't seem to change if I set balanced schedule to true or to false; same thing happens on both settings.

How do I tell the generator to schedule against ALL of the other teams/divisions in the subleague, instead of only scheduling against one division?

Relevant section of settings.ini file pasted below. Thanks in advance for any help.

; Whether to write to the schedule file
; claiming interleague play is supported.
; Whether to write to the schedule file
; claiming the schedule is balanced.
; The league structure, in schedule file
; format. Underscores are permitted but ignored.

; This many divisional games.
; This many subleague games.
; This many interleague/interdivisional games.
; If set to true, the scheduling engine will attempt
; to set up subleague pools between divisions of the
; same size.
; If set to true, the scheduling engine will attempt
; to set up interleague pools between divisions
; of the same size.

; Series scheduling options.

; The preferred length for series.
; In each division (or subleague, or all teams,
; for the two following sections), teams will
; be divided into this many pools.



Try setting the subleague pool count to 1 instead of 3. (No guarantees that'll do it, but it might suffice.)

Fishbreath -- First, I appreciate the tool! It has been great, and I appreciate the flexibility it gives us to create custom schedules to match what we are looking for.

What I am looking for is this: I want a college baseball-type schedule that gives me games on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, and then weekday games on Tuesday and/or Wednesday. Using the settings.ini file, I have the days set as follows:

; These options enable week-aware scheduling.
; start_day_of_week defines the first day of
; week in the schedule.
; No games will be scheduled on off_days_of_week.
; No random break days will be placed on non_off_days_of_week.
;non_off_days_of_week=List:Friday|Saturday|Sunday| Tuesday|Wednesday

Within the saved game, I have the season starting on Friday in mid-February (see attachment). I am able to get the proper starting point, but what I usually end up getting is a 3-game series Friday-Sunday, a 2-game series T-W, and then a 2-game series over the weekend followed by 3-game series midweek for the rest of the season.

I'm not sure what I am missing and why I can't get a consistent F/Sa/Su/Tu/W schedule. Any thoughts or suggestions?
