NHL 08 support

Post by Artem » Fri Sep 14, 2007 12:09 pm

With the game released everybody is asking about NHL 08 support. I haven't looked at the rosters yet, but it appears by all accounts that there haven't been any database changes this year. Some were even able to use the current NHLView to edit NHL 08 rosters with a little bit of trickery.

If the changes are indeed minimal, I will update NHLView by the end of the month to support NHL08. Until then, you could try to do what some of you have already been doing:
1) Open db.viv with BigGui.
2) Export nhl2008pc.tdb, rename it to nhl2007pc.tdb, then import it into db.viv.
3) Edit the rosters in NHLView and save changes.
4) Open db.viv with BigGui.
5) Export nhl2007pc.tdb, rename it to nhl2008pc.tdb, then import it into db.viv.
6) Open the rosters again in NHLView and save. This will update preload/fapt.viv so that the game doesn't crash on startup.

After the first time you did this, you can skip steps 1 and 2.

DISCLAMER: This is a walkaround and I do not guarantee that it will work as NHLView was not programmed with NHL08 in mind. So backup your db.viv, exhibition.exh, any season file you might open and fapt.viv.
