I feel like a dunderhead, but could you give me a little more help with using it. This could be the answer to my stiff creation woes.
I don't know why it's not working for you Chris, I downloaded it as well and it works like a charm for me. Maybe try redownloading it?

I will finish the final posts soon. Before that though, I have a question:

Does anyone have a suggestion for re-doing the International match-ups from post 43?

I would like to have better fight match-ups but I need to keep the system relatively simple and repeatable due to the size of this thing.

Could it be as simple as pitting 1v10, 2v8... then 11v20, 12v19... 21v30, 22v29...?

Thanks

Actually, the more that I have thought about this, the more I realize that setting up the International bouts for the top thirty according to subjective criteria would not take much longer. I could then have a rote set up for the 31-75 ranked international fights.

I would be interested though if someone has a systematic approach that would work well.

I tend to match up the contenders by their most recent records. That way you are having elimination bouts of fighters on recent win streaks to get a #1 contender for a world title. Conversely, fighters with a recent loss meet each other to determine who is worthy to remain in the higher contender groups.

These threads on universe development have been very interesting. Thanks.

Here's What I Do ...

Chris, what I do in my Uni (which I'm sure has a much smaller number of active fighters than yours because the rankings list doesn't go much below the top 30 in most cases) is match up guys roughly based on the following criteria: (1) who's available that month, (2) who has similar rankings (looking at pp, not the boxer rating), (3) guys on a roll with a win last bout tend to face each other, and (4) guys who haven't met before tend to face each other. I don't use any elaborate spreadsheet "system" or die-rolling, it's just seat-of-the-pants looking at what matches make sense. I.e., if a guy holds a regional belt and there's another guy doing well in the same region, he challenges for the belt. Of course, there's exceptions, like if two fighters had a weird result or close bout the last time (i.e. a stoppage on cuts, a foul, or a draw or split decision) the likelihood I would match them up again is alot greater than otherwise.

Don't know how to program this in a computerized exercise, but these are just the factors I look at.

Different versions of Excel is my not very well-informed guess.

Thanks Kevin and JCWeb. I like the subjective (seat-of-the-pants) angle. I am going to try that this next round on the top thirty and see what happens. It may not take as much time as I fear and would certainly be more enjoyable.

I just sent a PM to Swimmer to see if he can help. This spread sheet looks fantastic and will get a lot of use in my universe if I can get it to work.

F9 is supposed to calculate all cells with formulas. I wonder if there is a problem with the formulas. I'll look into it if I don't hear back from Swimmer - It's a beautiful spreadsheet.

F9 doesn't work for me either. I have to reopen the spreadsheet to get it to create new names.

Here's a couple of flags Chris (or anyone else) might like.
Austria-Hungary for pre world war one years and the newly independant nation of Montenegro (recently seperated from Serbia)

Excell is the office tool I'm least ept with. I had 3 weeks of training with Lotus 1-2-3 about 12 years ago and never had any occasion to use any spread sheet skills. I can build a relational database in access without missing a beat. Go figure.

That's great! Thank you. I picked a few up from the Commenwealth thread when Tom provided a link:

The Dominion of Newfoundland: a country from 1907 to 1949
