Hey,

I've never really used the Data Editor but i'm trying to change the Scottish system. I want a top tier of 20 teams and a 2nd tier of 24 teams as well as a super cup, basically so it is like the top 2 english divisions. Everything seemed to be working OK but while testing the nation rules i get an error saying "date 1.6.2013 is not in season date range 4.8.2013 - 15.5.2013".

I just can't figure it out. I've tried changing various different dates but I don't know where on earth this 1.6.2013 comes from as nothing happens on this date.

Can anyone help?

Sorry, that was a typo. I figured out the problem, it was the promotion playoffs from the 2nd tier, the final fell on 1.6.13 so i just removed it to make it simple.

If your league has play offs, you need to make the end date have enough margin between it and the ending date of the main league/nation/wherever the default main is to give the play off matches time to be done before that main global end of season, as the league's end of season refers to the regular season.
