Hi, 

 

Thanks for the work on the update, it is brilliant as always. Just a quick question on the fmf file with Derby and Reading points deduction. Is there a way to get the file that deducts points but leaves Brexit as is? In terms of realism, I understand the points deduction file and also appreciate that some users might not want Brexit activated, but it seems the two are tied together with that file, which then takes the choice away in terms of reality v preference. Is there one without Brexit being deactivated?

the file I loaded is just the points deduction Brexit has not been removed

 

the Brexit + points deduction file   isnt part of that file it is a download from the forums and is a separate file

@kingrobbo can you check the admin it looks like you linked to the brexit file again so it is being included?

 

I'm not sure how this keeps happening, if you're really struggling can you just PM me the XML and FMF files or something?

 

Or if you want to jump on FB or Discord or something and walk through it together i'd like to try and get to the bottom of what's going wrong.

@Footygamer 

 

so you have to load both fmf+xml version of the file to get it to submit 

 

selecting fmf you get this message wont let you submit

1.

 

selecting  a xml file

2.

 

so wont let you submit once again you get 2 x error messages

3.

 

select both a fmf+xml version of the file it does now let you submit

4.

this may result in 2 versions of the same file being in the download users only need to use 1 delete the other

Yeah it says in underneath “You must upload both an XML and an FMF version. The FMF works better for users, but our scripts can read what is in the XML version”

 

This is so we can read the XML and display to users what changes have been made and also to validate it so that things like a random PA change can't be snuck in.

 

But the FMF file is what the user gets, which is nice and smaller.

Thanks for the work behind scenes on this, I know the file in any form was not in the overnight update, is it likely to be back in the version that comes out overnight tonight?
