Dumb question but, how and where do you install your new database?
Just don't want to go through the hassle and frustration of my self-inflicted mistakes.......

That way it is a separate file within the stats folder and will never be overwritten when I update with a patch. You just have to make sure you point to it properly when you go to import your players. Not that difficult. It keeps it separate from the default database and that's the way I like it because it is a different database. I'd be very careful about overwriting the default database with the Spritze database, just in case you discover you want to return to the default database after all. Any other questions, post away.

I created the NL in 1900. But when turning on automatic expansion and going to 1901 all the teams fold and are replaced. Except for the Boston NL team.

I use the same team names and abbreviations when creating a league.
I am up to 1899 in my league and am trying to convert it to automatic expansion in 1900 or 1901. The problem is that when the new teams are created the team history's go with the folding team.

So i have a new Pittsburgh Pirates with no history and Pirates team with a team history from the 1880's folding when it didn't need to. Why is the game insisting on creating new teams when it does not need to? I am not creating a new league.

This has happened to me as well. I think the cause is the "I created" part. If I use the built-in expansion and never create my own teams this does not happen. It only happens when going to 1901. Never in any other year. Still wish we could get it fixed though but it ain't really a bug.

Yeah i noticed that. My problem is that i use the same rosters and teams as the actual 19th century leagues. I did have to skip the UA and PL leagues but other than that everything went pretty easy and faster than the league i did last year. That is until now. This pretty much is stopping point for me unless i keep doing everything manually.
Maybe use an earlier version and convert to 18?


Really sucks because i organized all the expansion teams, rookies, transactions, historical owners, managers, ballpark changes, team nickname changes into one spreadsheet.

For the most part a players career matched the teams he actually played for. When it didn't it was mostly i just missed manually making the signing or release even though i had it in my spreadsheet.

Cy Young has almost 300 wins and would still have till 1911. I did see a 53 game hitting streak as well. Cap Anson make to 3,000 hits but didt make it to his real total.
There were some surprise teams but also some teams like the Orioles and Phillies that duplicated their real league success.

I created a league starting in 1901. I deleted Boston and created a new Boston team with same name and abbreviation. At the end of the year the game removed that team and created a new in its place. No other teams changed. So im guessing it might have something to do with the team ids.

I was able to go back to ootp 17 and got the rookies to import to correct teams for pre-1901 leagues. I was also able to import the league to 18 and when expansion came up 18 didn't create new teams for the active teams.
So i guess i can use 17 up to 1901. That's ok. 17 was great but i hope ootp would fix this in the future.
