HAM for National Teams

First of all, HAM is not developed for use with national teams. But if you find any use for HAM as a national coach, you are very welcome to use it. You can get a HAM registration key free of charge for this use, as long as you accept that this use is totally unsupported.

All national teams are already registered for use with HAM. So as a new national coach, all you have to do is use the Lost Key function here on the HAM website to get the registration key sent to your email address.

Good luck to all newly elected national coaches!

Regards
HAM Development

There might be some minor display problems with the translated versions. This is not caused by the translators! It is a problem with HAM and is being worked upon. Also more languages are in progress. The work on these, primarily eastern european, languages has been slightly delayed due to problems with HAM and the translation process. My appologies to the users of those languages and especially the translators affected.

Error while retrieving team data, HTTP/1.1 404 not found

If you are getting this error, Error while retrieving team data, HTTP/1.1 404 not found, when retrieving Team Data, it is because your version of HAM is trying to retrieve the now obsolete HRF file.

Using HAM as a national team coach

The following has been added to the FAQ:
As a national coach, can I use HAM for the national team?
No, not really. HAM is not designed for use with national teams, and Hattrick does not support automated download of data for those teams. But should you find any use in HAM for your national team anyway, you are most welcome to use it. As a national coach, just send an email with the national team id to ham@lokesoftware.dk and you will get a registration key for the national team free of charge. Any such usage is completely unsupported.

Registration Server accessible again

The HAM registration server was down between approximately 08:25 to 12:25 (CET) Wed. 2004-01-28. The downtime was caused by a major outage by the Danish ISP. This may have caused problems in connection with updating HAM registration keys, as this was not possible during this time.

26 Jan 2004

New Registration Keys

Unfortunately, there has been a lot of users, using illegal registered copies of HAM. In fact, last month there were more users using illegal registrations than there were users using legitimate registrations. As a small software developer, it is very hard to take serious steps towards software piracy. But some steps can be taken. One of these is to change the registration key. This change will be made in a way that will hopefully make the smallest possible inconvenience to the legitimate registered users. But all registered users will have to get a new registration key for version 5.2 and later.

This can be done in two ways. When HAM version 5.2+ is run for the first time with the old registration key in place, HAM will offer to try to upgrade the registration key automatically from the HAM server. This should be possible for the vast majority of registered HAM users. If there is a problem with the automatic key upgrade, you can also use the Lost Key Retrieval function, in the menu to the left. Choose the Version 5.2 Key option and get the new registration mailed to your e-mail address. Enter the key into the registration dialog in HAM, and you should be ready to continue.

Should there still be problems with the registration key upgrade, please e-mail Loke Software at ham.registration@lokesoftware.dk and I will try to correct the problem as fast as possible.

Thank you for your understanding and patience on this matter.

Last Wednesday, Hattrick published the new rules for all 3rd party program to follow. The Hattrick Certified Product Provider (CHPP) program listed a number of rules all programs must follow in order to be used legally with Hattrick. These rules have a great impact on HAM, as many of the previous functions in HAM has relied on reading the Hattrick website, wich is now illegal. This means that two weeks after the announcement, on Thursday, October 16, usage of all previous versions of HAM will be considered breaking the Hattrick rules.

A few days before that deadline, a new CHPP compliant version of HAM will be made available for download from this website. Some users have asked me, if Hattrick will be able to identify those who use the old versions anyway. And the answer to that is, yes. HAM has always identified itself as HAM on the Hattrick servers. It will be easy for the HT's to see who is using the old illegal versions of HAM to access the Hattrick website. Even though a few functionalities will be missing in the new CHPP version of HAM, and some tasks will be made a little bit harder to use, I have tried to make the new version as friendly as possible. I think that the result will be acceptable to most users. And the future holds great promises from the CHPP program. I believe that new and better data will soon be made available to the 3rd party programs, and hopefully the end result will be an even better HAM than before.

An update on this site, a HAM server message and postings in the HAM Users International federation conference will announce the new version as soon as it is released. The planned release date is Sunday, October 12.

Transfer Price Evaluation Matching changed

The Transfer Price Evaluation functionality has been a fantastic succes. More than 300,000 transfers has been submitted to the database, thus making it possible to give pretty good estimates on transfer prices. The amount of transfers submitted has also made it possible to narrow the search down somewhat. Up until now, the database has been matching players against transfers from the last 16 weeks (a full season). Naturally this results in some inaccuracy, as the transfer market changes a lot in 16 week.

So as of today, the matching has been changed to only look at the last 8 weeks of transfers. This will mean that some evaluations will make some large steps today, but overall I think that the evaluations will give a more precise view of the current reality on the transfer market. Even when halving the transfers available for matching, the database still have more than 130,000 recent transfers to look at.

Thanks for taking part in making this functionality possible.

28 Sep 2003

New version 3.2.39.127 Transfer Price Evaluation changed

What's New?
  • Transfer Price Evaluation changed. Synchronizing of all players are now only allowed once per day (per team) and never on fridays. Synchronizing all player no longer checks for possible profit with next skill gain. Synchronizing single players with right click is allowed any time, but will only check for profit for registered users. This means that the columns for next skill gain evaluation and profit can no longer be updated by the unregistered version.
  • Missing flags in new countries added.
  • Matchreports now retrivable with Hattrick languages Svenska and Dansk. Support for more languages to come.
  • Included Transfer Price Evaluation at the time of purchase and sale on the economy tab of the player dialog.
  • Included Transfer Price Evaluation for next skill increase, in the last trained skill.
  • Added the possibility to update Transfer Evaluation for a single player by right-clicking on that player.
  • Improved Custom Column View saving. You are allowed to save and select an unlimited number of Column Views.
  • Possibility to remove registration. Start ham.exe with the parameter 'unregister' from the Windows Start Mneu Run option. IE. Run "C:\Program Files\HAM\HAM.exe unregister".
  • Magyar denominations added. Thanks to tgwnn.
Bug Fixes
  • Experience in (Pos) calculations changed. Experience now adds (SQRT(Experience)-1)*(Weight/100) to (Pos).
  • Experience is now also applied in (Pos) for keepers.
  • Player Age in youth pull list fixed. This fix is not complete, unfortunately. Older youth pulls may still show wrong age.
  • Fix for the Set Pieces training of players purchased after training bug.

26 Sep 2003

Transfer Price Evaluation disabled

Due to heavy server load, the transfer price evaluation has been disabled on the HAM server. I will try to move the Transfer database to a new server during the weekend or early next week. Another possible solution will be a new version of HAM, with improved evaluation code (improved as in lighter server load). I will keep this site updated with any news on this.

25 Aug 2003

Login problems

Many users are experiencing "Internal Server Error" when using functionality that requires Hattrick login. HAM uses www.hattrick.org as default adress to Hattrick (on request from the HT-Devs), but this has stopped working. I hope that this adress will start working again, but until it does, you can change the adress to Hattrick on the online tab of the Settings dialog. Use one of the IP adresses. You need to restart HAM for this change to take effect.

Setup dialog

If the problem persist after following the above steps, please try the following:
  • Disable the automatic login functionality on the Online tab of the Settings dialog
  • Make sure that HAM is allowed access to the Hattrick IP's through your firewall
05 Aug 2003

New version 3.2.37.124 Experience

What's New?

Problems with columns not saving

Many users have been having a problem with their column settings not saving correctly. There is currently a bug on the Hattrick site that produces incomplete HRF data (TeamID and Teamname is missing from the data). I suspect these two things are connected, but I am looking into it, and I will let you know as soon as I know more - and hopefully have a fix for this.

13 Jul 2003

New version 3.2.34.120 Transfer Price Evaluation

What's New?
  • Transfer Price Evaluation. The current marketprice of your players are calculated based on a database of real transfers. The column is colored to show the statistic significance of the calculation (red=very uncertain, gray=uncertain, black=good). You must allow upload of your own transfers in order to participate. All uploads are anonymized.
  • Added abbreviation as column status. List of abbreviations can be edited in Settings dialog or directly in file HAMAbbr.txt.
  • New countries added.
Bug Fixes
  • Suomi spelling error.
  • A Registration issue was solved.

The new Transfer Price Evaluation functionality is dependant upon a large number of transfers submitted to the transfer database. In the menu to the left, there is a counter displaying the current number of transfers in the database. While the functionality is still new, the number will remain small for some time. This means that the evaluations will be inaccurate, and often missing completely because no transfers of similar players can be found. Hopefully this will get better over time.

09 Jul 2003

Registered users moving to the new countries

Registered HAM users moving to one of the new Hattrick countries, thus getting a new team, should e-mail Loke Software at ham@lokesoftware.dk with both their old and new TeamID's and request a new Registration Key.

HRF data bugged

There is currently a bug in the HRF data retrieved from the Hattrick server, that is affecting some teams. Sometimes the HRF data contains an empty TeamID and TeamName. This affects HAM in a way where your Rating retrieval is "greyed out" - not selectable - and your column settings may be deleted.

I am working on a hotfix for this bug, and I expect to be ready tomorrow (June 17). The bug has also been reported to the HT-Dev team.

I'm sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused you.
