New auto aging sequence
The auto-aging feature works essentially in the same way it
did for TBCB 2.0 with one major exception. The game now generates a
career stage rating record if no other rating is available for that
stage and sets it as the default rating record while the fighter is at
that stage. Previously, this was a hidden functionality; with TBCB
2.5 you can now see the rating and even alter it if you are not happy
Here is how it works:
With your desired universe (or game) open, click on the Options tab in the lower right corner as shown here.
the Aging tab as shown below. Check both boxes at the top of the
screen. The always inform box is important if you want to receive pop-up
notifications as your fighters advance to new career stages.
the minimum and maximum number of bouts that you wish fighters to have
before advancing to the next career stage by simply placing the
appropriate numbers in the boxes provided.
The total of all the
minimum and maximum bout selections that you make will determine the
total number of bouts that your fighters will amass in their
careers. In the example below, fighters will have careers that
range from 24 to 59 bouts but you may make the ranges as small or large
as you desire.
You can activate auto aging for all fighters in
your universe with the button at the bottom or do it later
selectively. You can press the Calculate next aging button if you
have re-set the aging after starting a universe and want to start the
the fighter screen, check the box to the left of each fighter that you
want to activate and set to a beginning career stage. Then, from the
right side menu, select the mass edit feature. The box shown below
will appear giving you a number of mass edit selections. In this
case, we want the selected fighters to be active (as opposed to
retired), to have Auto aging applied and to be set to beginning.
The screenshot below indicates these selections.
When a fighter changes career stage a message box will pop up notifying you as shown below:
the stage is changed, the game will first look for a matching rating
record, if one is not found it will auto-generate one for you as shown
below. Note that the new career stage rating record has also been
auto-selected as the default rating record to be used.
