Ok, I have created a benchmark save candidate:
On my computer, it takes around 12 seconds for a season.
Also, the accompanying exe writes the benchmark result to the file "benchresult.txt" after each run.
This makes it possible to benchmark many times in a row, fully automated.
So to run the benchmark 20 times (without having to lift a finger to copy results) do:
- Start a command prompt
- Navigate to your CM folder
- Code:for /l %x in (1, 1, 20) do start /wait cm0102_bm.exe -load a.sav
- The league tables are all in benchresult.txt !
(Obviously you need to place the cm0102_bm.exe and a.sav in your CM folder.)
EDIT: The tiny database I used is also included in the zip, but unless you want to create a new game you do not need that
