Importing things.

#47: Importer Name Matching

A concept taken from Comic Book Hero, 'name matching' will be part of the upgraded importer in TEW2013.

In previous games you could not import certain items, such as tag teams or relationships, because each character is stored as a unique ID number, one which may not be the same from database to database (i.e. Sam Keith might be #3 in one database, #99 in another). TEW2013 gets around this by comparing actual names, essentially 'smart looking' for who the tag team \ relationship \ whatever is meant to involve.

While it obviously cannot be successful 100% of the time - primarily because so many wrestlers have so many identities - it should be able to work correctly in the majority of cases. This will therefore make mod making and database tweaking considerably easier and more powerful.
