      Right now, you're out of luck. I put in the autoscheduler, mainly, to run tests
      on entire seasons
      for things like creating new disks. The problem with writing to the gamefile.dat
      it that a full NHL
      season would create a gamefile that is something like 25 MB. In the last few
      years, hard drives
      have gotten big and very cheap. But, when version 4 was originally planned and
      worked (1997),
      25 MB would have stressed alot of hard drives for space. This feature can be
      added at
      some point if need be............
