PLEASE READ ALL! Ok, to clean up the conversation and update our status, I deleted a bunch of confusing and negative posting (mostly mine, ha!). Here is the update and status as I know it in great detail: Each week, when we advance, the system asks each user if they wish to download the current weekly dynasty file. Some of us have been dowloading this and some have not. I truly believe that it is in this downloading (similar to last year) that things got screwed up. That said, it ironically looks like it has maybe saved us as well. With this news, here is a few things to know: -Please NEVER save that file again. Mullen and I will be the ONLY 2 people to save the file each and every week. This keeps it controlled and there is really no reason for you to download the file... it only makes for quicker load times during that week of play -Plague EXCLUDED, please everyone else immediately go into your Settings -> File Management -> Online Dynasties -> Load/Delete and DELETE ALL FILES called "Cathedral" The good news is that gramps had a week 14 file. From this, we were able to create a new replica OD in Week 14, he invited me, and I am now the commish. Everything looks fine. The only obviously screwy thing is that you have to create a new coach and sign a new contract. The good news is that it does look like ALL progress towards/against the contract goals is counted up-to-date with the only change being that contracts seem to be random... so for instance I still have a 1yr contract but my goals are quite different (harder! ha!). I'm guessing a few of us will have totally different length contracts, etc. So what do we do now? Because I believe this is a file save issue and Plague has the file and was the only one able to get in last night, I am decently hopeful that his file is the culprit. So, when Plague gets home, he is going to do the same thing Gramps did, creating a new replica dynasty... hopefully in week 15. Once I'm invited and commissioner, he will then delete his old Cathedral file. At that point, my biggest hope is that our old file will then be just fine. If not, we will then have Plague's new week 15 dynasty to work from. If all of that fails, we will use Gramps new dynasty in Week 14. Either way... hope has risen! And worst case scenario is some contractual differences and we lost a week (in which case all those that lost would be simmed and all those that won would have the opportunity to play their game again). But summary: If you have old Cathedral files of any sort (Plague excluded), immediately delete and please NEVER download that weekly file again.
