OOTP Companion: dat file reader, Team Rater, Dev Tracker, HOF Stds, graphs, wOBA & more!

I'm pleased to announce the release of a new utility pack for OOTPX and OOTP11 called Lighthousekeeper's OOTPX Companion, which is the result of 1000+ hours of development over the last 6 months. It is still a little buggy, but I wanted to share this, warts and all. This utility is currently disabled for online leagues (due to cheating concerns), but is fully functional for solo leagues.

Download:
The latest version (v1.8; 8/21/2010) can be downloaded from http://www.filesonic.com/file/H3KDpDu. Just extract the zip file and run the setup.exe file.

Features:
This utility provides some functionality that has never been available before. Unlike StatsLab or OOTPOU, this is an application you install on your local machine, and thus is better geared for solo players (although those in online leagues can use it too). Here is a listing of the features:
• Dat File Reader: reads many of the OOTP database files directly, exposing many thousands of stats/attributes/ratings, including hundreds of previously hidden fields. This gives you unprecedented access to your universe's data.
•HOF Analyzer: let's you query HOF candidates (based on retirement year and years of service) and calculates HOF Standards, Fibbonacci Wins, and Black Ink to help you in determining who in your universe is HOF worthy
•Player Dev Tracker: Lets you track the development of player ratings and potential for an unprecedented number of ratings including: batting, pitching (incl velocity, stamina, & pitches), fielding, and baserunning. All ratings can be graphed over time.
•Team Rater: Uses the actual depth charts and pitching rotations stored in the game for each team to rank each team. This is a useful tool to run at the start of each season to see which teams are expected to win the most.
•Playoff Leaderboard: A single-season and career playoff leaderboard
•Plus More: In-season batting average & home run graphs, wOBA calculation, html export (buggy), multi-skin interface, "Similar Players", and more...

Screenshots:

1. Dat File Reader (showing Excel-like filtering and wOBA column):


2. HOF Analyzer:


3. Player Dev Tracker:




4. Team Rater


5. Similar Players


Change History:
v1.1 (3/15/2010)
* Disabled application for online leagues
* Added basic playoff leaderboard

v1.2 (3/19/2010)
* Fix bug where some leagues with historicals couldn't load
* Fix bug when reading leagues with unusually high offensive output
* Allow people to load files outside of MyDocuments
* Normalized Team Rater scores to 100 scale
* Added ERA and Holds to Playoff Leaderboard

v1.3 (6/22/2010)
* Now works for both OOTP10 and OOTP11
* Added rudimentary 'Similar Player" feature
* Improved look and feel on player details page

v1.4 (7/4/2010)
* Fix bug where some Historical v11 leagues couldn't load

v1.5 (7/13/2010)
* Fix more bugs where some Historical v11 leagues couldn't load
* Update to work with OOTP v11.2.15

v1.6 (7/15/2010)
* Fix bug where some ootp11 leagues were erroneously regarded as online leagues

v1.7 (8/15/2010)
* Added career playoff leaderboard
* Fixed issue loading leagues that have players with no names

v1.8 (8/21/2010)
* Fixed error in loading some league files
* Fix bug on playoff leaderboard showing minor league stats

Known Issues:
----------------
1. Career stats combining multiple major leagues in cases where your universe has multiple major leagues.
2. Exceptions when displaying player development tracker
3. Player dev graphs checkboxes not working

Lighthouse, this is great! I have mostly played with the HOF feature. I created my own rating system previously based off of similar categories. This will save me tons of time.

Thank you. I will let you know any issues I run into.

Cool utility. Tony M (Or Markus, clearly) might be able to help on what some of the UNKNOWN fields are.

Initial thoughts/questions

1. Wow. Awesome.
2. Ease of use is amazing. Can't be much simpler than pointing to a .lg folder and saying "go"
3. Stats: Is there a way to filter career stats and HOF calculations based on League ID? Looks like it's taking cumulative total of players stats at all levels
4. Custom views options...can't quite figure out how to use it. Functional yet?
5. Great start to a much needed utility. Thanks!!!

3. Career stats are only calculated for "major" leagues. If your universe features multiple major leagues, then the career stats are combining for both and not allowing you to filter for one. I will add this to the list of things to fix.
4. Custom views isn't implemented yet.

This is simply one of the best utilities I've ever seen for any sports game. And I only say that on the chance that there is one out there better. It could very well be the best.

Does this utility have any restrictions on access to data in online leagues? I could see how online GM's might be able to use this to get more accurate ratings, particularly in talent only leagues.

What version of OOTP are you running this against? I can't get anything to display (apart from scouting) on 10.4.36

Yeah if there isn't any restrictions this utility would kill talent only and scouting leagues.

That's why neags23 when he used my decoding dll in his scouting tracker put in a test at the start to limit it to a single team if it was an online league.

In world.dat there is an online league flag and then you need to do some validity check against the team they say they are to verify their management and then restrict the program to that team only.

Being able to see what everyone else is offering in the offers.dat doesn't help matters either. I like the utility and all but...

Wow, was any consideration given to online leagues before developing and releasing it? I appreciate all the work done by modders but to release something like this is completely irresponsible.

I really hope the mods delete this thread.
