I have now tested the Mattricks-0.7_rc1-1.noarch.rpm on my Fedora Core 2 
box. I have really not used Mattricks before and this is the first 
helper program for Hattrick that I've tried so I'm quite new at this.

With wxpythongtk- and wxGTK-gl-2.4.2-4.1 installed with yum from


I got it running and asking for username/password. After that it started 
downloading the game data and crashed. This is what I got in the console 
I started it from:

[peter at bahama linux]$ mattricks.py

     b_terraces = self.n_terraces - self.terraces
TypeError: unsupported operand type(s) for -: 'NoneType' and 'NoneType'

The second time I launched it, Mattricks succeeded in all downloads and 
I could use the program. Here's my evaluation, tab by tab:

Summary: OK

Player Lists: OK. I think it would be nice idea to use some colors
somehow to differentiate the attributes -- say show the worst attributes 
in reddish colour and the most good ones in green, or something? It 
would also be nice to know what the "Player evaluation" scores mean?
And how should I interpret the "Squad statistics"?

Comparisons: What should this page do? Lots of checkboxes, but nothing 
happens when I click them? I also get this error in the console:

   Conversion error: invalid literal for int():

Economy: OK. The display is very clear and informational.

Match List: OK

League table: This is empty. Should this show the other teams in my league?

Arena Sizer: OK, I guess, I really don't understand this view :)

Lineup Selection: How much should the computer picked team be trusted? 
Can it be made to visualize the formation I am using (say 5-4-1)? Could 
the "Players not to use" box be a bit more bigger?

I also got this error message in console while running Mattricks:

Traceback (most recent call last):
   File "/usr/lib/python2.3/site-packages/Mattricks/LeaguePage.py", line

65, in __init__
     (pl, w, d, l, f, a, po, n, tid) = allteams[j]
IndexError: list index out of range

With wxPythonGTK2-py2.3- from wxpython.org it did not work at
