So I am just wondering when I save the game then load it up on mac assistant should the database be up to date? I ask this because say its 13th of march or whatever in the game when the English regen date is happening, should I be able to save it on that date or the day after and be able to see all the regens?

From what I have found this is not the case, I tried to pin point the difference in the database date and the MA date but this didnt work out as some of the ages are wrong on regen players usually only a year out!

Would be useful to know because currently have to wait till a month after the regen date and by that point the players have already signed pre contracts! When really I want to catch those amazing regens before they sign those contracts and get them for a cut throat price!

Thanks in advance for any replies

Well, MacAssistant RT reads everything out of the game's memory, so in theory when something is visible in the game, it should be visible in MacAssistant RT. Bear in mind that if you advance the game, you must reload MacAssistant's data by clicking on the reload button.

I have found this to not be true, I have searched players on MacAssistant that I see on the game and they have not appeared, has happened a few times vice versa!

This aside great work on a very useful app, just needed clarification on this because picking up those youngsters before interest from big teams occurs is vital!

I have had this too. However I've found the assistant is very, very picky with spelling, getting all names included when searching including middle names (which is hard especially for Brazilian players ;)). What I normally do is search for the players team, and find them that way.

Of course I don't know if this is actually the case for you, but might be.
