In settings you can add the directories where you have your hrf-files.

Could you make a screen shot? I do not get anything like that. You are
using some linux, right?

Yes, this is on the TODO-list (I guess, at least we know about it)

OK, I do not get that behavious on my Win-98 computer.

Quite a few of these changes are planned. I agree with you that it
would be useful to save which games are viewed, didn't think of that

This is also very likely to happen. Most likely in the form that there is
a combo box where you can select between all previously downloaded

As earlier, this is also planned.

As you all can see there is quite a few things to be done, so please
consider if you are interested in helping out. Python is quite easy to
read and understand, so it will be possible to help rather rapidly after

When you pick a new player from your youth squad, you minimize the
HT-window before it displays the player, download a new hrf using
Mattricks (click Start Junior Spy). You will then get a list with your
players with the one Mattricks thinks is your youth pull marked. You
select your youthpull and can then "step" the abilities one by one and one
step at a time. Just to get it a bit more exciting.

You can try it without having a newly picked youth. :-)
