mjavon's Dynamic Dynasty Tool

Hi everyone,

A little while ago, I developed an app to help bring my dynasty mode to life. I've shared it in a couple different threads on here so some OS folks have already seen and used it, but I wanted to create a dedicated thread for it.

What Does It Do?

I hope this app is of some use to some of you guys and I appreciate any feedback you're willing to give.

Use the app: NCAA 14 Dynamic Dynasty Tool

Run it locally - see this comment in the thread for the source code -

I will put the instructions for how to run it in the OP.

To run it:

1) Extract the ZIP file.
2) Download R from here
3) Download RStudio from here
4) Open RStudio. Run the following code to install some R packages the app needs to work:

install.packages(c("shiny", "dplyr", "DT", "shinythemes", "markdown")).

5) Open the file in the unzipped folder called 'server.R' using RStudio. Near the top of the code pane, there will be a little green play button that says "Run App" - click on it.


Known Issues:

1) Issue where beyond season 1, the games and/or practice mode will not load:

I did discover the root of a bug earlier this week where the game/practice mode in dynasty wouldn't load...

Basically, there are some face IDs in the game that are designed specifically for the RTG Heisman mode where you play as a former Heisman winner. These would be the faces of Tim Tebow/Reggie Bush/whoever. My 'fix recruit faces' module randomly selects from a pool of face IDs that includes those, but they will not load correctly in dynasty mode. If you've used my tool, and experience issues loading, check the faces of each of yours and your opponents' roster and see if you see any of those faces. If you do, edit the player and change it to whatever you like - problem solved. I still don't know for sure what all of those face IDs are, so I don't have a programmatic solution yet, but at least there's this workaround.

Hotfix: Check both teams' roster for Heisman faces, and edit them to a "normal" gameface.

So if I wanted to use this, I don't have to restart my dynasty or anything right?

Ok. Never used the editor, but all the info I'll need for this is in that thread right?

Yeah it's all in there. Might have to do some searching within that thread - figuring it out wasn't that easy for me, but I eventually did.

My tool is definitely the easy part.

Re: mjavon's Dynamic Dynasty Tool

This tool is great! About to start playing my dynasty after simming the first 4 seasons to get to 2017 and used it for recruits and draft declarations the last two years. Love to see some of the hyphenated names and updated awareness to have some impact freshmen.

Did you use it for all of those simmed seasons? Curious to see how the awareness tweaks to recruits and draft declarations affects the roster makeup after several seasons. I'm hoping there are some elite underclassmen and it's not all senior and junior starters.
