Config for 2012/2013 Season

  1. Config for 2012/2013 Season

    How do I make a config file for the custom kits to change every two years? I can make the kits, and have Graphics Guru, but I don't know how to make it change each two years, like it does in real life, as I don't know the Unique ID for it in 2 years?

  2. The unique id for the teams never changes - it is the teams id for the whole game. This may or may not be of help to you but, i have noticed when making kit packs and configs to go with them, that every now and then a kit i have made will not show up with the normal config line:

    <record from="andorra_1" to="graphics/pictures/team/753/kits/home"/>

    So to make it work i have had to put a year in to the line like this:

    <record from="andorra_1" to="graphics/pictures/team/753/kits/home/2010"/>

    This is down to the game having special kits programmed in (i.e. anniversary kits for one year and then back to the normal after that.

    Given this i presume if you added a line to the config for every year then your kits would change each season... this is just theory and i havent tested it... dont forget to rename the kit for each year too... for example andorra_1 andorra_2 andorra_3 etc etc

    Example:

    <record from="andorra_1" to="graphics/pictures/team/753/kits/home"/> (this is the default kit)
    <record from="andorra_2" to="graphics/pictures/team/753/kits/home/2010"/> (in 2010 they will wear this kit)
    <record from="andorra_2" to="graphics/pictures/team/753/kits/home/2011"/> (in 2011 they will wear this kit)
    <record from="andorra_3" to="graphics/pictures/team/753/kits/home/2012"/> (in 2012 they will wear this kit)
    <record from="andorra_4" to="graphics/pictures/team/753/kits/home/2013"/> (in 2013 they will wear this kit)

    Alternatively all you have to do is have one config line and change the kit itself when you start a new season?? (i.e over-rite andorra_1 with a new design... lol

    Hope this helps

  3. Ok cheers, never thought of changing it each season manually, got the kits so would take only a few seconds, cheers

  4. No problem mate - sometimes the simple ways are the best, could get very complicated for no reason otherwise lol
