  1. Hi, Yes, I do plan on updating it. Truth is that with all the problems/errors I had with the app at the beginning of the season I wasn't sure I would keep up development but everything seems to have stabalized which seems to confirm my suspicion that Yahoo was having issues on their side. I will provide an update this week. Best, Ric
  2. Hi, I responded to you directly a few weeks ago but figured it was time to make an official announcement in the forum. First, I want to apologize for my lack of updates last season. We had a tragedy in the family in the same year I was planning a wedding with my wife. Needless to say, last year was challenging and I did not work on the app much at all. With that said, I have updated the player database and fixed the errors some were having last year. I have also uploaded the app to my personal website. In addition to hosting the app on my site the latest information regarding the app will also be there. I will also continue to post updates in this thread to keep everyone informed. The website with the download information and instructions is https://www.zflame.com/index.php/fantasy-football/yahoo-ddf-import Please let me now if you have any problems or encounter errors. Quick note, Yahoo's Fantasy web site has had some problems lately which I believe are manifesting themselves in my app. If you experience any strangeness let me know but I have noticed that it sometimes takes two or three tries to get the data imported without any errors. I will continue to investigate the issue and provide more information soon. Thanks Hi Ric, When I try to import I get the following message: An error was encountered. Please ensure you entered the correct pin from Yahoo. I triple checked to ensure it was the correct league id. Any suggestions? Thanks! Hi, I have been experiencing the same issue myself for a few days now. At first it would only happen occasionally but now I rarely get a successful import. I doubt it is anything you are doing wrong. I have done some investigating and have come to the conclusion that one of two scenarios is taking place. The first possibility is that Yahoo's YQL API & Fantasy Football site is experiencing heavy load which subsequently affects my app and the queries it makes. Based on Yahoo Forum posts, other developers are having the same problem. The second possibility is much more disappointing and could in essence kill my app. Based on forum posts I have seen in the Yahoo YQL support section there seems to be very little to no participation from any Yahoo employee or representative. This has lead some to ask if the YQL API is being supported at all. This is troubling news. I'm hoping they are just experiencing some issues that they will get resolved soon. I will keep everyone updated as soon as I find out more. Thanks,

  4. That does help. I had the same issue. I think I figured out the problem and should have a new version up by end of week. Thanks.
  5. That is strange. Could you give me some details on OS and system specs? Wondering if anyone else has experienced this. I will do some testing on my side to see if I can duplicate the error. Any steps or additional info would be helpful. Thanks,
  6. Updated version is up. Should import a bit faster and Player DB has been update. Yahoo DDF Import Download http://ddfimport.zfl...ort-0.3.2.1.zip Current Version
  7. Sorry for not getting back to you sooner. Been busy traveling for work. So, first things first. Do you already have your league setup in Draft Dominator? You should have your basic settings and league profile setup before attempting an import. This must be done manually. If so, you should make note of where you have your league profile saved. The default location is C:\FBG\DraftDominator the name of the file will be something like "yourleaugename.ddf" this is the file that you need to select in my app. When you launch the Yahoo import app you need to fill in three required fields: League ID Team ID DDF File There will be a button saying "Choose DDF File for settings" Click on this button and navigate to the location where you have your DDF file saved and select it. Once you have that done you should be able to click on "Start Import" this will import your league rosters into a new leauge file with the following naming convention "yourleaugename-today's-date.ddf" for example myYahooLeague-2013-09-12.ddf. Now you should be able to open Draft Dominator and open your newly created league file with updated roster data. Let me know if this helps.
  8. Hi Bob, Could you describe what you did to get to that error. Please keep in mind that you must select your original DDF file that you setup for your league. Thanks,
  9. That shouldn't be a problem to add LeVeon Bell. I will upload a new version in the next day or so. As for the other issue it is exactly as you said, if the player is not in the DD database then the app will not be able to import them. Thanks,
  10. The app has been updated with the latest player database. No other changes have been made.
  11. Okay everyone. I have done some testing and the app seems to still be compatible with Yahoo, so aside from updating the player DB no major modification is going to be needed. I hope to have an updated player DB by end of week. On another note, as was mentioned by Simon Shepherd, the MFLs API is much easier to work with. So if there is a need/demand for an MFL import app I am open to writing an app to fill that need/demand. To be clear, this app would initially be similar in scope to the current Yahoo import app in that it would import team rosters and scheduled opponents NOT league settings. You would still have to create your own league with all the league settings manually. Let me know what you guys think. Oh, and before I forget, if I do create this app it is not likely I would have it ready for the season opener so it may be mid September before I'm done. Thanks,
  12. In all fairness my app does not import scoring rules. You have to set them yourself during the initial setup of your league. What my app does is import the scoring settings that you have setup and then imports the current rosters directly from Yahoo. So whatever scoring rules and league setup you initially manually setup just get copied and then the rosters get downloaded from Yahoo. I specifically did this because I ran into issues with importing league settings from Yahoo. The reason my app may have worked better is because it did not mess with whatever league settings and scoring rules you setup. I thought this would be a better overall approach. If there is a need for something similar for an MFL import I might consider filling the niche. I of course do not want to step on Footballguys.com proverbial toes as they have been great in assisting me during the development of my Yahoo Import App.
  13. Hi Guys, Sorry for not responding earlier. I thought I had it set to send me an email update if anyone responded to this post which did not happen. Anyways.... Yes, I do plan on updating this for the 2013 season. As far as the MFL version goes, I currently have no plans on creating an app to import MFL leagues at this time. That does not mean I will not develop one. My main reason for developing an app for Yahoo FF started as a selfish motivation because I had a few leagues on Yahoo. I saw no reason to keep the app to myself so I shared it with everyone here. I currently do not have any teams on MFL. I'll look into their API and see what I can do. You'll find MFL's API 100x easier to get info from than Yahoo's. That was my experience, anyway! Since FBG provides an MFL Import, why would you need another? I have no plans on duplicating an app that already exists. Looks like there may be some confusion on the MFL import app but as has been stated, the MFL import app has been updated for the 2013 season http://subscribers.f...MI60a_Setup.exe . Hope this clears things up.

  15. Hi Everyone, Just wanted to check in and see how the app has been working for everyone. Suggestions are definitely welcomed. I was planning on adding an auto update feature for the player DB but haven't had time to get to it. Let me know your experience with the app. Thanks,
