Saturday 19th June 2021 at 11:40am - SimonT

It has been 18 months since the last price updated for the STHS version 3 subscriptions. As the cost-of-living increases and the purpose of the subscription model is to ensure long-term longevity of the STHS and of your league, I decided to increase the cost of the STHS subscription. The one (1) year subscription increases from $ 20 to $ 25 CND. The two (2) year subscription increases from $ 35 to $ 44 CND. These changes apply today.

Thank you.

V3: 3.2.7 / STHS -- 3.2.7 / Client

Saturday 22rd January 2021 at 3:00pm - SimonT

On this day of January 23rd, 2021, version 3.2.7 of the SimonT Hockey Simulator Version 3 (STHS V3) and version 3.2.7 of STHS V3 Client are released.

These releases fix all reported bugs since their last release and introduce multiple improvements. Here is four notable’s improvement.
  • Added a new feature called “Update Dynamic Website by HTTP” that allows you to update your league website directly from the STHS without using third-party program or the build-in FTP function. Please read the manual for more information.
  • Added a new feature called “Download Lines Files by HTTP” that allows you to download Lines files upload on your website by the STHS Client.
  • Per popular demand, I have increased the number of players that can be on the waiver at the same time from 100 to 500.
  • The STHS now allows you to brand your teams using pre-defined or custom themes. Every NHL and AHL Team is assigned a Theme ID. You can see a list of pre-defined Theme Here (http://sths.simont.info/ThemeID_En.php). Note #1: Currently, the theme ID only applies the logo of each team in the dynamic website but in future release, more branding will be done. Note #2: The version 3.2.7 also comes with a CSV file you can use with the “Import Theme ID CSV File” manual command.
The first two improvements on the list should make your life much easier in managing your GM’s lines files instead of trying to figure out what FTP setting you should enter in the STHS. With this update, it is quite possible that you will hardly ever need to use the FTP functions of the STHS and those from third-party software!

Survey on a new web hosting service

Monday 11 January 2020 at 10:30pm - SimonT

The owner of STHS is considering offering a new service to members of the STHS community. Currently he is selling a subscription for the STHS for 1 year or 2 years. But to use / enjoy the STHS, you need a web host. Currently, STHS buyers are left on their own for this aspect of their league and very often pay more for hosting their website than for the STHS itself. Occasionally, buyers find web hosts that are free but cause them problems. These situations are problematic for the STHS support, especially anything related to web hosting that is beyond my control. Considering that the dynamic website is important to a league and will continue to be even more important, the owner of STHS is considering offering an optional web hosting service for STHS buyers. This offer would allow him to have access to more parameters to provide better service and support for STHS buyers, especially those less comfortable with IT. For example, the link between the STHS Client and the STHS for alignments will be preconfigured for users.

The purpose of this survey is to verify your interest in this new web hosting service and to develop a win / win business model between the STHS community and me. Currently, there are 2 possible technical solutions.
  • Option 1) Make subdomains of simont.info available. For example, if your league is called "Old School Hockey / OSH", your website address would be osh.simont.info.
  • Option 2) Buy a new domain / web server and make these subdomains available for your league. For example, if your league is called " Old School Hockey / OSH ", your website address would be osh.******. ***. (Note, if you have any interesting domain name ideas, I'd love to hear them).

STHS Support Policy Update

Tuesday 12 January 2020 at 4:30pm - SimonT

In the last month, I’m having more and more open issues and emails about issues with third-party websites. It’s the same situation I had in the mid 2010 with the legacy web portal when people bought it and sent me all the support requests, especially after the founder the web portal shutdown. More information can be found here: http://sths.simont.info/Forum/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=13851.

Since more and more features of the STHS are linked to the dynamic website, the relation between the STHS, STHS Client and dynamic website is becoming more critical and will continue to be more critical.

Because of this relation, as of today, I’m updating the STHS Support policy. Any support question related to a third-party website will be dismissed. If you decided to use and maybe paid for a third-party website, you are on your own in terms of support on any features that requires the dynamic website to work correctly.

For your knowledge, the dynamic website is an open-source project on GitHub, freely available for everyone to view, edit, modify and most importantly, contribute! In the last 5 years, apart from the WebClient creator, nobody else has contributed. People are copying my code, modifying it and reselling it for a large sum of money. This is insulting for me and I’m condemning this.

Thank you.

V3: 3.2.6 / STHS -- 3.2.6 / Client

V3: 3.2.5 / STHS -- 3.2.5 / Client

Saturday 17th October 2020 at 10:00am - SimonT

On this day of October 17th, 2020, version 3.2.5 of the SimonT Hockey Simulator Version 3 (STHS V3) and version 3.2.5 of STHS V3 Client are released.

These releases fix all reported bugs since their last release. The complete list of changes since the last version is available in the Version History section.

In version 3.2.5, career stats management has been completely reimagined again. Instead of saving very limited scope of data, the STHS save 80% of the data of the league file into the CareerStat file. The data not saved in the CareerStat file is Players Stats VS, Transaction History, Team Transaction History and Records. The new data saved in the CareerStat file are Coaches, Prospects, Draft Pick, Schedule, League Options including Standing, Referees, more data for Teams, Players and Goalies. This allow to have even more data CareerStat SQLite database and make the dynamic website of version 3 of the STHS to be even more interesting. The most interesting part of in the standing and playoff tree for all your previous season.

Because of this change, you need to rebuild your CareerStat file if you had one create before version 3.2.5. But instead of loading XML files which are missing data anyway and are complex to work with, the STHS literally use previous league STH file or STC file to get the data history to rebuild the STCareer file! Simply open the STHS, go in the Career Stat section, click on ‘Career Stat Transfers Stats from Select File’ for every STH or STC file that you have of your end of season and end of playoff, save the new STCareer file and output the career stat database.

Also, please note that the STHS Client will no longer upload line via FTP. It will now upload the SHL file via HTTP if the FTP option is select for the commish and your website URL is configured. If you use the “Download Lines from FTP before simulation”, please update your path because the end is now hardcoded to be “/linesupload”. Finally, The STHS now used a third-party DLL ‘FluentFTP’ for its FTP functions. The file ‘FluentFTP.dll’ is bundle with the STHS must be in same folder than the STHS executable like the System.Data.SQLite.dll file.

Thank you.

V3: 3.2.1 / STHS -- 3.2.1 / Client

Tuesday 21st January 2020 at 2:00pm - SimonT

On this day of January 21st, 2020, version 3.2.1 of the SimonT Hockey Simulator Version 3 (STHS V3) is released and version 3.2.1 of STHS V3 Client is released.

These releases fix all reported bugs since their last release and introduce new abilities for retire players. The complete list of changes since the last version is available in the Version History section.

Please note that the STHS Client is now available using the Microsoft .Net Framework 4.7.2. Since 2006, the STHS and STHS Client has been built on Microsoft .Net Framework 2.0, which was released in 2002 (18 years ago). The Microsoft .Net Framework 4.7.2 has been released and is included in Windows 10 by default. Since you should all be running Windows 10 because Windows 7 is no longer supported by Microsoft, I’m starting a migration of the STHS code to the Microsoft .Net Framework 4.7.2. Using the Microsoft .Net Framework 4.7.2 will simplify your usage of the STHS and STHS Client because the Microsoft .Net Framework is already be installed on your computer by default. There should be no compatibility issue if your general managers are using the STHS Client with the Microsoft .Net Framework 4.7.2 while the commish is using the STHS with Microsoft .Net Framework 2.0.

Thank you.
