New Database Structure
Championship Boxing 2.5 features a dynamic default database which can be
updated by you at any time. The updates are stored in an on-line
fighter database located on the OOTP servers. The database can be viewed
and searched via a web interface at http://tbdata.ootpdevelopments.com/ or can be accessed directly from within the TBCB 2.5 game.
default database is referred to as ‘The Data Pool' and is located
on your PC at \My Documents\Out of the Park Developments\TBCB
2.5\DefaultData. The Data Pool acts as a reserve of fighter files that
can be drawn upon to build or augment a universe but is separate from
any user-created universe. In other words, regardless what you may do
with or to the fighter files within a universe that has been created,
the Pool will always retain an up to date version of the file in
Updating the Pool
the main screen (prior to opening any universe games) single click the
Update Data Pool button located in the lower left corner of the screen.
TBCB 2.5 will go to the on-line database and search for any updated bio
files, personal fighter information or rating records. It then will
download what it found and update your Pool. A message box will appear
telling you what has been updated as shown below.
Updating your boxing universe from the Pool
the Pool has been updated, any universe game may be updated from that
pool. It is important to note that any update to a universe will not
overwrite fight histories or stats. Personal information (fighter
records), bio notes and updated rating records will be added to the
files but in-game fight histories your user notes will remain
To update from the Pool within a universe, click the
‘Update from Pool' button located in the lower right corner of the main
universe game screen. The Fighter Filter screen will pop up allowing you
to filter what fighters you wish to update based on sex, division and
career start year. In the screenshot below, all fighters have been
selected for potential update.
clicking ‘OK' the game will check your local Pool for any files that
have been updated based upon your filter criteria and will update those
files only. Once completed, a message box will tell the user how many
fighter records (personal information), rating records and fighter bios
have been updated or added. Clicking ‘OK' will bring you back to the
main universe game page.
fighters with multiple rating records are indicated in the main fighter
selection screen with a yellow entry in the Career Stage column.
