87 100
Rare Superstar
0.3% 1.0%

5.9% 8.3%
45 51 Very Good Starter
10.1% 13.3%
38 44 Good Starter
14.3% 18.4%
31 37 Decent backup
21.8% 16.7%
0 30 Roster Filler
40.8% 29.6%

Not that i care,(most MP leagues using historic files are low on talent) but just so you know.






















































When did you generate your draft files? I've changed the code several times.

Yeah, I've made some changes since then. 11/12 is the latest update.

the single draft class link gives this php error: Parse error: synta in /home/benelou/public_html/filegenerators/draftclassgenerator.php on line 143

and the full class generators output spits out an error when trying to convert the csv with the fof draft file generator (i sent you the error via pm a couple days ago).

First one is fixed. Second one, you're using the wrong generator. You need to use the league file generator, not the draft file generator.

Pretty big additions made today to the draft class generator (NOT the full player file generator). Previously, only QBs and WRs had "player types" implemented. Now all positions but punters have these. My hope is that these will make for some interesting one-dimensional players in the middle/late rounds. Details are here:

Player Types Implemented for almost all positions in draft classes.

Is someone trying to do some testing or something with these files? I ask because in the last few days, more than 800 draft classes have been generated. I've had some bot issues on my server lately, so I want to see if this is a human thing, or just more bots that I need to block.

Ben, trying to create some today so not part of your 800+ onslaught. Question for the experienced here. I create the file and when I try to use the '04 generator it tells me it has the wrong type data in various columns. I know its me so what am I doing wrong?


FYI - hoping to generate a first year complete file then draft files from 60 until whenever for use in aan SP or whatever.

I just tried this also and i get a message that says:
" Error: line 255, Column BZ, value of 9 is not in field range of 0 to 7."

so I would guess this is what you are seeing?


edit: i found the BZ column is years remaining on salary. use 0 for unsigned players. the max contract is seven years

so Ben's app is putting in a value in this column greater than 7 I believe. I generated a couple file and there are values greater than 7 so maybe we can change those values and use the file anyway. i'll try that later.

Sounds like you may be using the wrong files.

Draft Class Generator: Create .faf using the FOF2K4 Draft File Generator
Full League File Generator: Create .fdt using the FOF2K7 Player File Creator

you are right, I'd forgot all about that. thanks

I also was toying with this yesterday but there is no way I would have made 800 files, not sure i would have the patience for that

Thanks Ben, using the right files works. Next question though. I have tried creating a few draft files but there not random and the subsequent files are the same as the first. ???

Nice work.

One problem I see is that I created a new league file to start a SP game and ~60% of the defensive players (regardless of position) are all 6'0" and 210 -211 lbs.

They seem to play ok, but seems kinda weird to have all these underweight DL and LB's around

That's weird. It didn't happen when I generated the BFL, and I don't *think* I've changed the code since then. Let me take a look...

Maybe you need to refresh or something. They're all random and have unique file names.

Yup. Fixed. I did make a small change to the height/weight algorithm in the draft file generator that I copied over to the league file generator, but forgot that the draft file uses position groups (1-16) while the league file uses positions (1-27).

Any thoughts on what the generator will do to FOF combine/bar tells?

EDIT: To clarify, I'm referring to MalcPow's study where, for example, cornerbacks with high Man defense and Endurance was a sign that the draftee could be a creeper. With bumping up endurance, my thinking is those kind of creepers will be harder to decipher, if even existant.

Well, MalcPow's study was done using the FOF2K4 draft file generator--the same one that I'm using to create the draft files. Therefore, I would think that the mask gets assigned in the same fashion, with maybe the exception being the ones that have endurance as part of the pair.

Doing some testing for BFL. All draftees will have 100 volatility, at least for a while.

Or not. In some testing, my code just rolled an uber-stud CB with every key rating 610 or higher. FOF imported him as the uber-stud expected, with 5 red combines. However, his M2M and Endurance are dead equal, both around 25. I double-checked the CSV to be sure:

Column AR (M2M): 616
Column AV (Endurance): 625

So, yeah, FOF still masks in the same manner. Now, it MAY be confusing when a guy just *happens* to have high M2M and high endurance, since there are more high-endurance corners in these files than in FOF, but I'm not so sure that's a bad thing, really.

This is what I was getting at. I fully expect the masked pairs to stll exist, however, I would hope the generator adds noise when fiddling with one or two of the paired bars.

How to change draft year?

I can't figure out how to change the draft year. When I use the link Ben provided in his first post, I get a link for the 2011 Draft Class. When I click on that link, it generates a .csv file with a draft class but the birth years of all the players are in the late 1980's.

As instructed in Ben's first post, when I save this .csv file with a different draft year (say 2027), the .csv file still keeps the same birth years, so when I import that .csv file, for the 2027 draft don't the players end up being 36-38 year old rookies? I'm so CONFUSED............

Can someone help?

Change the link, so when you download it from here
Code:
http://www.younglifenorthdekalb.com/filegenerators/draftclassgenerator.php?year=2011

change it to
Code:
http://www.younglifenorthdekalb.com/filegenerators/draftclassgenerator.php?year=2027

and you're golden.

You just need to change the year it ends with.

Heading into the draft, these four teams are open:

BFL: Indianapolis Colts Roster (Picking 14th)
BFL: New Jersey Jets Roster (Picking 23rd)
BFL: New York Giants Roster (Picking 12th)
BFL: San Francisco 49ers Roster (Picking 1st)

Come join the BFL and play in a MP league with these files.

Not dead. I found an error in it that didn't exist in the BFL code. I've been meaning to update but haven't gotten around to it. Not sure when I can, but it's on the radar.
