Player import and tracking

Hello,

today is a great day for hattrick youthclub. We started with no CHPP support at all, then we got a CHPP license and hattrick implemented youth feature step by step. There are still some things missing on CHPP site, but we are proud to announce that …

  • … you  can import your players via CHPP now. No more need to copy and paste player source codes
  • … we automatically detect if a player is promoted, sold or fired
  • … you can see all former YA players, who are member of your Hall of Fame now
  • … you do no longer have to worry about entering all resales of your player, because they are detected automatically
  • … your scouts are detected and region changes (with some limitations too)
  • … we track the skills of your player, later we will implement a graph and display the skill changes of your players through their career

When you login, at max every 12h, a sync starts automatically. This sync does update players and check for new matches too. If you like to run this sync manually, because a match just finished or you have imported a new player, then you can force an immediatly sync by clicking on the link ‘Sync’ in the top menu of hattrick youthclub. At the end of the sync you will get a report with updates. You have to confirm some updates and enter some additional values for others as well.

Of course not everything is possible due to CHPP limitations. Next we want to explain what you still have to worry about:

  • You should still import the trainer / coach comments of the coach for a match, because they can have some important information for calculating the subskills.
  • Especially for scouts you should be carefuly, because we do only detect a region move of a scout, when the scout scouts a player and do not know the exact dates when scouts get fired or what are the costs for moving a scout to another region. Please check the scouts page manually, when you changes something.
  • In general, please keep your eyes open and double  check if everything is right in HY.

We really hope you like these news and loooking forward to your feedback. Maybe this could be a way to get more ht users using hattrick youthclub. We feel that the initial import of the players was the biggest problems for newbies. What do you think?

Cheers,

Ruben (Homer-Simpson) and Markus (Mackshot)

Some technical facts some may like to know: we named this new version 5, because it is a major change. 41 files were added, with ~6’000 lines of source code and ~270’000 characters… ;)

    I love this change!

  • Great Job, but the manual sync doesn’t work :(

    I tried it and it doesn’t work, I didn’t get any report neither. And now, I have no mean to manually upload my new player, recruited on saturday… :(

  • great! even though it keeps saying ‘invalid date’ for all the old players that were in my YA when it was launched.

    • But it tells you in which date range the valid date is.. So select one as suggested by the alert box ;)

  • Thank you!

  • This new version is really awesome, I agree with the final comment : the initial upload was a problem for newbies. Also, the auto-import of players is a really nice addition.

    One feature I would love for next version : a tool that helps you estimate the unknown max skills for your players, in function of their general skill level (inadequate : 15-18points, etc.)

    • Since the allrounder theorie doesn’t fit for all players, we do not like to do that, but maybe there will be chance for estimating the skills in future. Today you can already use the diagnosis… which you can find on the player’s details page!

  • How about rejected players? You don’t import those, do you?

  • Thank you !!! And very great job !!

  • Wow, great job!!!
    Thank you very much for all the efforts you`ve put into the youthclub tool!
    Keep up the good work :-)

  • A milestone in the history of the Hattrick Youthclub.
    In recognition of your performance I will donate € 10

  • Its cool but it’s not working as it should. I cannont complete the sync session because of invalid dates on my older/precious players.

    Please fix this isue!

    • Hi,

      please look at the date the alert box is telling you. Additionally we fixed a smaller Bug.

      So please try again. It should work!

      Cheers!

  • Great work! :-)

  • i have the same issue:
    “Its cool but it’s not working as it should. I cannont complete the sync session because of invalid dates on my older/precious players.”

    i pushed “ignore player” to all of them, was the only way out. the date he complains wasn’t even the date selected, something is wrong there.

    thanks for the update.

  • Hi,
    Automatic detection for the promotion of players does not work for me, even after synchronization. I promoted a senior player and is always in my list of players in youth hattrick.
    How can I remedy this?
    Thank you for your support.

  • thanks!
