Wouldn't it be great to be able to properly create tag teams in PWS? This heavily requested and long awaited feature has made its way into PWS! The Tag Team Editor is a tool to streamline the creation of tag teams. You can create two-man and 3-man tag teams using this editor.
Creating/Editing a tag team:
To create or edit a tag team go to the File -> Open Tag Team Editor. This will open up the Tag Team Editor's main window.
To add a new tag team, select the wrestlers you want on the team using the wrestler selector on the left hand side of the editor and then click the "Add" button under the "Team Members" box on the right side of the editor. You can also remove wrestlers from a team by selecting the wrestlers you would like to delete in the "Team Members" box and then clicking "Delete Selected". If you would like to reorder the members of a tag team, select the member you would like to move and click the "Up" and "Down" buttons as needed. In addition to adding wrestlers to a tag team, you can also edit the following attributes of a tag team:
To load a tag team for editing, click the "Load..." button at the bottom of the editor and then select the tag team you would like to edit.
To save a tag team you've created or are editing, click the "Save" button at the bottom of the editor.
To clear out any changes that are currently in the editor, click the "Clear" button. This will remove any wrestlers added to the team, the default name, and any alternate names defined. It DOES NOT delete the tag team, it just clears out the contents of the editor.
One of the least fun aspects of PWS is having to individually select wrestlers for tag team matches, adding tag teams to a promition, or viewing a tag team's results in the results database. It would be nice to select the "Road Warriors" or the "Legion of Doom" instead of having to select Hawk and Animal individually. Well now that nicety is now a realty! PWS now has new selectors for tag teams and six man tag teams. Read on to see where the new selector is used.
Selecting Tag Teams When Running A Match
In the Match Setup window above wrestler search text field, there are toggle buttons for toggling between singles, tag team, and six man teams. Clicking the toggle button will display the appropriate list of wrestlers or teams. Selecting a tag team and then clicking the "Add" button will add all of the members of the team to the match.
Tag Teams in the Promotion Manager
The selectors for adding and removing wrestlers to a promotion now also include tag teams and six man teams. Clicking the toggle button will display the appropriate list of wrestlers or teams. When adding a tag team to a promotion, if the tag team has alternate names, you will be given the opportunity to assign an alternate name for the team to the promotion. Additionally when adding a tag team to a promotion, all of the wrestlers on the team are also added to the singles roster for the promotion.
The tag team selector is also displayed when adding/editing a title and adding/editing a title change.
Tag Teams in the Results Database
The tag team selector is displayed in the following areas of the results database:
In the Promotion Manager, tag team names are displayed in the Champions roll call and in title histories.
In the Results Database, tag team names are displayed when editing tag team results, viewing tag/six man team win/loss records, and in the tag/six man team rankings.
True-Up Names: In the past, the results database would automatically try to figure out what the correct name was for a wrestler. This feature was fragile and difficult to maintain. Now there is a menu option in the results database, Edit -> True-up Names, that will fix out of sync names in the results database. If you see old/incorrect names for wrestlers or teams in your results database, run the True-Up Names feature to fix them.
The follwing keyboard shortcuts were added to the results database:
