Weekly News #42

The 42nd edition of the Weekly News is here. Time is flying away! ;)

Ladder DB for non-ladder games
For the ranked ladder games (in GameCenter) you will automatically be using a so-called Ladder DB which will make all teams equal. This means that everyone has the same possibility of winning - it's not about who gets the best teams first. Unfortunately, this DB is not available for those who want to play unranked games - or, at least not until now. Aab-ern has made a Ladder DB like the one from Gamecenter, so it's possible to have equal games when playing unranked games.

Download it here.

Patches for the Eternal DB
Well, seems like the Eternal DB was not as tested as Digitizer said :P The first two patches for the DB has now been released, and there's another one coming. The first two patches fix bugs which appeared in some of the variant-files in 2008 and 2013. Other than that, it adds 61 new tours and other minor bug fixes.

A new bug has been discovered which will make the game crash whenever the AI don't have enough riders to be at the races they have registered for. This will be fixed in the next patch which will also include even more new scouting zones. I suppose it would be the best to wait for this, but if you can't wait, download the first two patches here.

Update: The third patch is now available here.

Roadie with yet another pack
Roadie has released the first pack in his new "Continental Team Pack Series". In these packs you will find lots of graphical stuff for continental teams, including water bottles, glasses, overshoes and more. The first pack includes the following teams: Team Sparkasse, Tinkoff Credit Systems, Barloworld, Amore & Vita, OTC Doors, DFL Cyclingnews.com, Cinelli - Endeka and Yawadoo Mobile.
I've noticed that people have difficulties with installing his packs, because there's no Read Me included. Whenever I got time to write an installation guide, I will do so -- promise!

You can download his pack here. Roadie has already released several other packs. You can find them all here.

Yet another Titan05 Trailer
T-Photon has been advertising for his database for a very long time now. There's still 18 days to go before it's released, but if you want to see how it looks like yet another time, T-Photon has released a new Zürich - Metzgete trailer. It's a PCM07-replay, meaning that you can watch the entire race by using PCM. Download it from here and extract the contents to My Documents/Pro Cycling Manager 2007\Replay. The shirts (and other files) won't be correct, but you will still get an idea of what the DB is like.

The most popular DB is ...
Not surprisingly, the excellent PCM Spain 07 DB won our "Which DB do you use"-poll. Actually, it managed to get 61 % of the votes - pretty amazing and way ahead of all other databases. On 2nd place you find the Eternal DB with 9 % whiile the rather old PCMGeeks DB has 6 % of the share. For some weird reason, 5 % of you are still using the original database.
In total 477 people voted which I think is the record for amount of votes. 

Our new poll is about which Pro Cycling Manager game you think has / is the best one until now - vote now! ;)

Site Updates
Most of you probably already know this, but I've worked on a few things which have annoyed me lately. It's now possible to embed YouTube videos to the forum, a feature which has already been used a lot in the Funny Things-thread :) Anyway, it's pretty simple to embed videos: Click the "youtube"-button on the forum, and the youtube-tag will appear. Inside the youtube-tag, you need to put the video code -- not the entire URL.
Example: Let's say I want to show "Is Bush an idiot?" on PCM.daily. The link for that movie is http://youtube.com/watch?v=whhbPVrb5KM - however, you only need the video code which is the one I have highlighted in red. Therefore, the youtube-tag will look like this:

I've also removed the old smileys and replaced them with some "new" ones - and added a few new extras, too. The dancing banana () seems to be very popular ;)

You can discuss and request new things here.

Personally, I dont like the Banana smiley at all. So much so that I have used my AdBlock feature on Firefox to block it so it does not show up for me Pfft
