What's the story with the scrum? Is it the props ratings that make the biggest difference then secondrow, backrow? Or is it the whole packs rating together? Does weight make a difference because some players are completely unsuited for the pack weighing only about 90kg but with high scrummaging rating.
Also I downloaded the veiwer and played a match. After I downloaded the highlights and tried to watch them "Class not registered" came up and I'm not able to watch them.
Sorry about the problem with the Viewer. Here are some suggestions,
1. Download and install it again, sometimes the download can get errors in the process of the download.
2. Try right clicking and running as admin.
3. Related to 2, you probably need admin rights on the pc you are installing it on to make sure it works.
4. See if you can open the demo game or highlights and see if they are viewable (these should appear in the directory when you run the viewer for the very first time and click open)
You should just be able to click on the team you want to change jerseys. On some computers this seems to then cause a bit of a delay and register as if it is not responding but if you wait it should load.
Can you get the demos to load?
Look's very interesting. Will have to give this a whirl once I get home to my laptop.
The only thing I can think of it that the clash jersey has not installed properly.
If you can find this directory or equivalent on your pc where you installed the viewer,
C:\Program Files (x86)\Virtual Sport Dynasty\Rugby Dynasty Viewer\graphical\textures\players\all team jerseys\low res
then inside this folder you should find all the jerseys.The clash jersey is 0.bmp. Is that there?
If not a fix (other than reinstalling the viewer and trying again) could be to copy one of the other jerseys and rename it
Sorry about the issues you are having.
Great to see some activity! Hope you all set your squad and strategies......deadline has past.
Don't forget to check your free agents for any possible stars, as they will be replaced by new ones at the end of the round.
Also....dont spend all your money at once as you get no gate takings for away games but still have to cover player wages and costs!
Keep us posted on any problems you guys run into with the viewer and we will do our best to ge to the bottom of it.
Good luck with your first games....and remember to download them from the home page after logging in, as you may spoil
the result for yourself if you view any page in the league menus.
we will be looking for a game of the week to put on the website free for everyone to download....so if you think your game
qualifies let us know.

That's nice of you, you've been very helpful and your advice has made a lot of headway. I'm kind of giving it up for a lost cause because of my terrible computer skills.
I defy anyone to come up with a better name than the Brest Hooters.
Theres nothing I can say that won't appear gay so I might as well go for it, My guys are going to smash your N.O.B's so hard their fathers will feel it
Anyone having issues with the viewer.......
Can you please reinstall it by right clicking on the install file and clicking 'Run as administrator'
How did people get on in the first round? I had a disappointing one was at home yet lost 28-12. Seemed to have plenty of possession judging by the opposition's tackle count but lacked a cutting edge. Some strange contrasts in my team. The guys more suited for backs are all over a hundred kilos while my pack is very lightweight with a hooker weighing 97kg, a tighthead weighing 100kg, a second row who's 200cm (6'6") but 97 kg and a backrow with a 7 who's 87kg and an 8 who's 97kg. I do however have a beast of a 4. Dada Shepard from Swaziland 197cm and 130kg with a fitness rating of 82.
If you want to compare say the speed of all your players you can click on the word speed on the player card, you should then see each players speed rating appear next to him on the list.
Oh yeah I noticed that I put players in positions I thought suited their skills but for most of them their size doesn't suit the position. Which make the bigger difference physical attributes and size or their skill levels when picking positions? Also how does the lineout work? Is it just the secondrows who need to be able to jump?
At least for the backs the physical attributes speed and acceleration are very important. Tackling is pretty important to everyone. You can get a solid base of a team around these things and then look to key skills for that position once you have this solid base. For example rucking will be important for turnover ball, so you will want your loose forwards to be good at this (well the whole pack really) . You want a 9 with good passing etc.
For lineouts the players lineout jumping ability and his height are key. At the moment I think locks and loose forwards will contest the ball, though more commonly locks.
But like you have said your team will be an odd grouping of attributes at the moment. So you wan't be able to achieve the ideal balance yet but will have to work with what you have. To work toward an ideal balance you can train your players in areas importatnt to the position you want them to play. Also keep an eye out for free agents that better suit your needs.
Big Ginger have you tried right clicking on the installation and selecting 'Run as administrator'. This may fix the install. If not you may have to turn User Account Control off (UAC). These are the joys of releasing software for Windows these days. Was never a problem on trusty XP.
Praise be to God it's working!!!
EDIT: Now it's letting me watch the demos but not my matches.

Now it's fully working fully.
I think it was mainly the run as administrator. It involves a bit of a process but it's working.
Is there any skill that can be improved to stop a single player consistently getting turned over?

Thanks for answering my kind of stupid questions. I seem to have poor forwards but good backs.
Good backs at this early stage should go a long way to getting some wins on the board (tip: a fullback with good speed, acceleration and tackling will clean up a lot for your team).
P1 W1. Hells yeah.
