They _should_ work in OOTP9. I wish the OOTP staff had used his name files for the 1951 QS, instead of using 2008 name files and creating an utterly bogus set of players.

According to OOTP itself, OOTP MLB play (modern and historical) outnumbers OOTP fictional play three to one.

Five thousand thanks for a non-modder? I never thought I'd see the day. Thank you for your support.

They do but I had to replace the , with 0 in the nation file for them to work. Not sure why, but I figured it out. Thanks for reply though.

cheers,

When I try and replace the name DAT file when a new decade rolled around (1880s), I get the following error:"The loading of the database failed. It is either corrupt or a save-game from an old version." Any ideas?

Thanks,

dcc

Are you using the dat's right out of the mod zip or did you recompile them from the txt's? I noticed that the DAT's in the mod don;t work in 2007/8/9 and I had to recompile them all myself.

Yes I am, what should I do to get them to work?

Thanks,

In OOTP8, it worked for me if I started a new sim starting in 1880 (1890, ...) using the appropriate .txt-file of the mod. Then I took the .dat-file the program generated with the start and replaced the .dat-file of my original game.

It should work this way in OOTP9, but I had no time to test this so far.

Well, the answer to my dilemma was simple. The import names and ethnicities function preserved my custom player names while adding the extra names missing from Questdog's files. I'd read on the forums that function was not the most reliable, but it has worked like a charm for my league.

Most of this thread was written prior to OOTP9, and the readme.txt in Questdog's zip file appears to be written for OOTP2006, so if/how this all applies to v9 is a little hard to follow...

Can Questdog's names be used in OOTP9? If so, what are the steps?

Thanks in advance.

Hey guys. You can still use this mod for OOTP 11. The DATs are outdated, but you have two options.

BEFORE starting your game that will use QDs mod, replace the text files in [OOTP DIR]/data/database with QD's files. Make backups of the original files first name you might need to rename QDs files too. Then start the game and OOTP will create it using the new names.

If your game is already in progress, you can use the "Re-import names and ethinicities" button to force the game to import QDs names and not screw up existing names. I've done it both ways with my 100 year solo league and other than a hiccup going back to the default files once I hit the modern decade (before I did the re-import, all went fine.

I've got an 18 year old league. I'd love to have some name variation in my OOTP 11 game. I don't want to change all my retired and current players' names!

So how exactly do I use this re-import button to change new names and keep the old/existing ones the same?

Thanks,
Fardaza

  1. Backup your OOTP database text files [OOTP DIR]/data/database/*.txt
  2. Replace the first_names.txt, names.txt and ethnicities.txt files with those from QuestDog's mod. You may need to rename them. Overwrite the existing text files in the database folder.
  3. Launch OOTP and load your league.
  4. (In OOTP 11) GO to OOTP -> Game Setup.
  5. On the "Global Setup" tab click the Re-import Name and Ethnicity Database.
  6. Play as normal.
  7. The next time the game generates new player names (Amateur draft or end of season if draft is off) the names should begin appearing based on the QD names file you picked.

    NOTE that QD purposely removed a number of ethnicities that only began appearing in the 80s and after from his files to reduce the size. You may notice asian players with American names as a result of this if you foreign players settings are really high.

I have my original QD files that I believe worked in v9, but does anybody know if they work in v12, and - if so - what the steps are?

Will this mod, or any part of it, work with OOTP13??? I really liked this mod, and i'd hate to start a new league in 13 without it
