    Hi Foss
    Thanks for great work. I have some issues loading your Japan database after the SI games official update(18.3.0) was released not long ago. Therefor is was wondering is you would be so kind to update this database as well so will run once again?

    You might have to wait over 15 minutes while setting up the game for the loading to progress. I don't really understand what "fake as usual" is supposed to mean.

    It isn't working. The game freezes when it sets up the database about 1/3rd of the way there.

    Não consigo usá-lo. Não carrega o banco de dados para iniciar o jogo. Estou carregando os arquivos "Japan - DB" e "Japan - League". Está certo? O que eu estou fazendo de errado?
  • alyssoncastro's avatar
    I can not use it. It does not load the database to start the game. I am loading the files "Japan - DB" and "Japan - League". That's right? What are you doing wrong?
