Martin Zander´s first victory was in 1915 but on unknown day and month. I could invent any date and by 9 Sept 1916 he would have 3 victories already. That "Null" value doesn´t allow his score to increase. There are not realistic ways to solve the problem I guess.

I would add a dummy date 1.1.1915 to enable his score count.

Thanks guys for the help. This is an Herculean task that should be done with a "little" patience and 125 litres of black coffee wink Today almost finished all the Blue Max recipients which were missing in the database. ( by the way, that means that all of them scored more than 20 kills that must be all written down!) Shredward did the tough ones, the Top Aces, but still lots to be done.

Edit: I have found an annoying problem when inserting some ace victories. Some aces victory files are not recognized by WOFF even after linking them inside the game. I don´t know what am I doing wrong but I think It´s enough for today.

@JJJ65, your great WOFF UE Encyclopedia returns erroneus data regarding date of kills for the aces. WOFF UE depicts the date properly but the Encyclopedia doesn´t, in case you want to take a look wink

Let me check that, Aris. Thx for info.
BTW, is that true for all aces or is that valid for any particular person?

ArisFuser,

For those ace victory files that the simulation is not recognizing, I am sure Shredward would be able to help you, even if you were only able to PM him with the relevant files, so that he could insert them into the simulation via a later patch.

Shredward,

Apologies for volunteering you, but I am sure you would appreciate the help that ArisFuser is giving you in completing this herculean task.

This work is all about finding good sources of info, and taking yout time of course. The more information you get the longer the process. 125 german aces "fully" done (including bio and sometimes photos). Not much done today, (you know, life still out there...) but I plan to send Shred some files for check and approval, hopefully tomorrow.
