Importing
The whole online league system centers around the import/export process. Human managers export changes to their teams, as described in Exporting Team Files (Non-Commissioners). Commissioners then import those changes into their master game file.

Commissioners have several ways to import files:

Import All Teams from Server

The Import All Teams from Server button is located in the Online League Functions described in Online League Functions (Commissioner). By clicking this button, OOTPB will connect with your FTP server and look in the Team Export directory defined in Setting up an Online League (Commissioner) for any team export files. If it finds any team export files, it will import them into the game.

Import All Teams from import_export folder

The Import All Teams from import_export folder button is located in the Online League Functions described in Online League Functions (Commissioner). By clicking this button, OOTPB will look for any team export files stored in the import_export folder within the saved game directory on your computer. If it finds any team export files, it will import them into the game.

This option is typically only necessary when a problem with the FTP server forces managers to send you export files through e-mail or some other method.

Import Teams

Commissioners can also import team files individually from a menu within each team's pages in the game. As a commissioner navigates through a team's pages, such as their Roster page, there will be an Import/Export action menu:

Import/Export Action Menu



Import Team via FTP will attempt to import just the current team's file from the FTP server.

Import Team will attempt to import just the current team's file from the import_export directory.

Import File Settings

In the Preferencesscreendescribed in The Preferences Page, there are several options that define what OOTPB should do with team export files after the import process is complete. There are three options, as follows:

  • Do not delete or rename files after import.
  • Delete team export files after import.
  • Rename team export files after import (the file will be renamed as team_#.ootp.imported_date_time; for example, team_1.ootp.imported_20070206_083110).
