Xeifrank's Draft Software - Files with compiled projections

Postby mrmarley » Fri Mar 21, 2008 8:27 am

I'm sure some of you are aware of XeiFrank's nice (and free, thank you Frank) software that you can use for mocks, during drafts or entering your draft after the fact to see how your team stacks up. If not, you should check it out here.

I used the compiled projections from the mlb 411 guys and changed it around so it works with his software. If you're interested in downloading the hitter and pitcher databases, you can get them here.

If you've already drafted, you can copy and paste your Yahoo draft into notepad and save it as a text file then import the draft results to quickly see all the teams in your league and their projected stats & pts. The only thing you need to do before importing your draft is to change Chris Young (the outfielder) to Kris Young in your draft text file. That's the only way I could get the software to correctly automatically add both Chris Youngs.

Yeah, you should be able to just copy from "round 1" to the last name of the last person drafted and then paste it in notepad.exe

I don't know much about programming, but I'm assuming it's some type of run-time error? Here's an example of a draft of mine so you can compare the txt files.

If you use the two files with better projections from my 2nd link in the original post when adding hitter & pitcher databases inside the software, the only name change you need to make is on your draft txt file to Kris Young. The rest of the names are corrected. (actually, Willy Mo Pena might not work, I haven't checked that).

Launch the program and from the drop down menu select Tools->Create New League

then select your categories anywhere from 4x4 up to 7x7 (as long as hitting cats match pitching cats), also select number of teams and team names. After you are done and return to the main window make sure you save your league config file before trying to open it. Any other questions let me know. The current download is version 8.3.20 (year.month.day).

Also, I'm having trouble moving guys from a position to the BENCH and back. Use the drop downs and hit enter and nothing happens.


Yeah, that feature still needs some fine tuning.

Hey Frank,

I just wanted to say thanks for the software. I know I'm in the minority here but is there any chance that we'll be seeing a pts league version of this software where we can input projections specific to our league?

Thanks

Well, points leagues can be done pretty easily using excel, so probably not. The one thing I did think about adding was dollar values for auction leagues.

downloaded this, but saw that it was an .exe file. Is there any way that you have a program compatable for Mac's?

Sorry, it's for Windows PCs only. I don't own a MAC, but if people want to chip in and buy me one with a Visual Basic compiler I'd be glad to make a MAC version. :)
