Creators set update 44 with a surprise for contributors

Another creators set update was just released. It contains 86 and 508 photos (including more than 200 cult creators). The largest contributors to this update are:

  • Balša Milijaš
  • Tomas Av
  • andrew89 

Plenty of cult characters as usual was added by Łukasz Oleksiak.

As lately you flood me with proposals of creators, which I have not had time to review and verify you can expect the next update quite soon.

Today's update had another goal, test the new functionality in the MovieStats, that is, that at release of new set update of creators, all contributors for given version will receive an email with the information about creator from their proposals which was included in the update. It is a kind of little thing but I hope, that remind you of, that your work associated with proposal of creator has tangible results.

Here one more note If you receive an email, and lately you didn't add any new creators, this means, one of the added in the past by you, was updated (it may be affected its data, parameters or added photos or cult characters played by that person).

The update will occur when you start a new game with the default set of creators (details can be found here).

In total, the default set of games already has 2567 creators .

Director's Cut: Cult movies

On the occasion of the entry of the cult films I mentioned, that, in the context of the cycle Director's Cut I'm going to describe to you could the formation of this new functionality. Because the subject is quite extensive, I decided to dedicate an entire separate entry on his personal blog. It is now available at this link also included in the section Director's Cut.

I wish you pleasant reading!

Video Tutorial: Cult characters

I am pleased to present to you the first in the history of the Movie Business video tutorial to the game. It is dedicated to Cult Characters. The 10 minutes video I am telling you about what cult characters are, how to use them in your own films, and how to add new one, with the use of the site MovieStats.

As a part of extension of MovieStats the new option appeared, that allows you to add your own cult characters for a particular actor or actress. This video shows in detail how to do it.

Video is recorded with a commentary in Polish but there are also subtitles in English. In addition, all examples have been presented with the English-language version of the game and MovieStats so material will be useful for all who do not speak Polish.

This is the first such material for the Movie Business, so, let me know what you think about it. If you like it maybe in the future there will be more videos about other aspects of the game.

In addition, after watching the video, you can run the game. Yesterday's version 0.9.2 contains more than 200 cult characters added by me. So right away you can try out this mechanism in practice. The MovieStats search engine has been extended. To allows check whether a particular cult character is already in the game. I hope, you will be tempted to add also your own favorite characters.

IMDB Tool v2.0

During intensive work on the latest versions of the game turned out, that myAPIFilm uses to retrieve the information about the artists from the IMDB has undergone major rebuild. It caused that IMDBTool has stopped working. Finally I could find some time to make the appropriate changes to this tool. So here are the new version which you can download from a dedicated sub-page IMDB Tool.

To recap, that IMDB tool is useful for automatic downloading of creator filmography from IMDB, that is needed when you add new developers in the MovieStats.

IMDB Filmography Tool

Along with the newly added feature of retrieving information about the creators from the IMDB, I made a small tool which helps download filmographies of the creator having IMDB profile link. I decided to share with you this little program, because it can help a little for those, who adds new creators in MovieStats. Adding film credits apart from processing of photos are the one of the most time-consuming part of the whole process of adding a new creator.

This tool and a description of how to use it can be found on on a new subpage IMDB Tool in Files section.

Set upgrade to version 24

For some vacation coming to en end, the weather getting worse so maybe you decide to return to play with Movie Business. Good excuse let it be a new creators set update to number 24. It adds 20 new creators, and updates the data of some of them.

Details related to procedure of the update can be found at sub-page in the FAQ section.

My holidays are not over yet and therefore more exciting information, concerning the next version of the game, you can expect in October ... (a jest na co czekać 😉

Problems with registration in MovieStats

I have received from you the signals, that some players may have had problems recently with the account in the MovieStats. After registration, you should receive an email with an activation link. In the form of http://moviestats.prv.pl?active.

Unfortunately, after you click on the link pojawał I get an error on the site.

Not Found

The requested URL/activ.php was not found on this server.

Well, problems with Service prv.pl as you can see, there are still so try to replace in the string moviestats.prv.pl on moviestat.tomiga.net

The address in this form should be correct.

If you still have a problem with activation, please contact. I'll try to help as much as possible. The site has been improved to new activations were already on the correct address.

biznesfilmowy.tomiga.net or new addresses

The last serious failures prv.pl (server aliases to a Web page) have made, that access to services related to the design of the BF was heavily eroded. The whole situation irritated me enough, that I made the decision to buy back its own domain.

Because I have a couple of non-commercial projects too expensive would be the establishment of a separate domain for each of them. Therefore, I decided to group all of your "work" under one umbrella: tomiga.net

From today, so the official addresses of the parties related to the Film Business is:

Additional benefit for you, with new domains, It's no ads, that pop up when I used the aliases prv.pl.

Although the old redirects still remained (Today, probably even work) It's looking at their niedeterministyczność, I suggest to update your bookmarks and use the new, official addresses.

If You are interested in a slightly longer history tomiga.net I invite you to your private blog where I devoted this event full entry.

New page – Director's Cut

Because nazbierało already quite a lot of long entries for the Business of Film in my personal blog, I decided to put direct links to them, also on the official website of the BFA. I think, that every fan will find there a lot of interesting information about the game, and curiosities of the process of its formation. So here today to welcome a new section in the menu About the game, entitled, Director's Cut. Feel free to check.

Update set BF2 to version 15

Today, there is another update numbered 15. It contains 23 creators and 36 photos, added by you, which have passed the stage of moderation. For the record detailed the process for adding your own creators I described in This place.

What should I do to get the update? It would be enough, start the game in the mode that uses a default set of creators (practically every ;). At this point, the game should inform you about the availability of an update and download new data. If the process is successful, you will receive basic statistical information, along with the version to which the set has been updated. You can also see the list of creators who were added/modified.

To all those who added some creators but they were rejected for some reason.

I remind you that the creators should have minimum photo major. In addition, the picture should have appropriate proportions (be well graduated). Otherwise, it is dropped. Remember that even if your Creator has been rejected, you can later edit and correct what has been done wrong.

NOTE: In case of, When you appear any errors please this information, along with the details. We wonder, What is wrong and how to solve the problem.

How do I add artists to the Movie Business

This time, on my private blog, I put quite a long and detailed text describing how to add your own suggestions to the creators of the Film Business 2. I have tried to describe each aspect and the parameter that you must specify. Although the text is based on the online editor available MovieStats the information contained there are quite detailed and also will be useful when you want to create your own set using the BF2 Editor.

The full entry you will find here.

No activation e-mail to MovieStats

In the context of recent statistical analysis and large number of people, who did not activate its' account in MovieStats despite registration, I received information from KlimkaJr, that an email with an activation link did not reach him.

Looks, that such situation may happen (Unfortunately, I do not know the reason of such behaviour and probably it will be hard to find the source of the problem), that, despite registering on the site email does not arrive to your mailbox.

Here's what to do, if within 24 hours from registration, do not receive such a message:

and) check whether It went to the SPAM folder (on your mailbox)

Most of today's service providers who offers mailbox has spam filters, which may qualify suspicious emails as spam. These algorithms work differently and sometimes not always effectively. Therefore,, login via WWW (for example,. poczta.onet.pl, poczta.wp.pl) to your account and see if by chance email from MovieStats landed in SPAM folder.

b) if the email is not in your spam folder, send me a request for sending of activaton link to the address biznesfilmowy@wp.pl providing your username (profile name)

I hope, that the problem does not occur too often.
