    Champman0102.co.uk Update Team

    Below is a list of all the current list of the Champman0102.co.uk Update Team and what nations each member covers.

    Also included are the nations we have no-one to cover. Please read the next post it learn how to join or help out.


    What we do:
    Ever since Mark started this forum nearly a decade ago and some members continued the work of the original one man update team, Helvete, the forum has updated the CM0102 database. The current update team continues this work trying to keep the data up to date as best we can with the manpower we have on hand to do so.

    There are limitations of course (explained here and we always have to put workarounds in the database e.g. 2 teams are missing from Italy Serie A and France Ligue 1 every year as that how the game was back in 2001/02, and that's the game we still update, no matter what patches are available or what they change.

    We have guidelines for everything from CA (Current Ability) to Club Reputations to Wages to keep the data consistent and to generate some similar results when compared with current leagues around the world at a given time. If everyone done their own thing there would be no sense of realism at all and while a lot in CM0102 doesn't have any realism, as an Update Team we like to see results that somewhat mimic happens around the global (results, best players, transfers etc.)

    We don't use any tools other than cm0102ed.exe that comes with a basic installation of the game (patch v3.9.68 always) and cmdbsort.exe. Otherwise the risk of corrupt data increases too much and given that it's just a hobby for the members of the team, losing work is not fun after spending a couple of hours making changes.

    Different member levels:

    DIRECTOR -

    - What does a director do?

    He is charged with making the main decisions regarding substantial database changes. Also update the live database and giving new members guidance on how to edit the database.

    COACH

    - What does a Coach do?

    He scouts and/or updates the info in the database (a Coach is basically both a Scout and a Coach).

    - How?

    He gets the basic version of the game (v3.9.68 with no other patch applied), downloads the latest updated database (if no one else is updating at that moment) from the coach who was updating before him.
    Then he makes his changes with the official editor of the game, saves and re-uploads the database for the next Coach who wants it (further and more accurate instructions will be supplied when joining the team).


    SCOUT

    - What does a scout do?

    He looks for information on the internet about his area of expertise, mainly free players, using the best football sites (the choice of the site depends on the nation/s he's covering), and eventually a coach updates this info into the database.

    - How?

    He goes to the site (for example http://uk.soccerway.com/) and through the searching function he looks for the players he needs, then posts his findings in the related thread inside the update headquarter. Scouts can also use regularly updated Save Games and exports of the database in text form to aid their roles.

    For anyone wanting to the join the team there are 2 simple ways of joining:

    1. Approach of the Update Team Board Members - found here under 'Director'. Just send a PM to any or all of the members listed as Director

    2. Consistently provide data changes that need to be made in the database, either in the form of feedback on the previous database or new transfers and changes that needing to be included for the next database. The full Scouting forum is found here

    Hello guys! I'm interested in join the group!
    How we do the changes?
    Can I take Argentina to make changes?
    Do we use a shareable database, so we make changes in the same database once a time?
    How we do?
    Thanks!

    Just pointing out Usain Bolt has bought a multimillion dollar house on the Central Coast so he will most likely sign a deal with the Mariners around Christmas
    It would be worth throwing him in on a rolling contract because that's what it would end up being the case in the near future.

    Other than that, no issues I have seen. Great work!

    Hope not, would be awesome to have Usain in the Update Team. Apparently you only have to offer him a rolling contract.
