    Started an offline dynasty today. 1st game froze in the second quarter. Restarted and was able to complete it. Week 2 game has now froze four times and I can't get it started.

    Turn your cheesy settings off, change your team and your playbook.

    If you use any of your recruiting time for the week, and then turn the game off, when you come back to play the game it will freeze. So basically you'll have to sim that week to get past the freezing, and from here on out play your game before you recruit.

    Has anyone disproven that the freezing game is related to game speed ? I play on normal and haven't had a freeze yet, I've also have recruited prior to my matchup.

    Did you recruit, turn the game off, and then come back later to play? That's the problem, not necessarily recruiting before the game. It has nothing to do with game speed. I play on slow with no problems as long as I keep that in mind, and people who play on normal have had the same problem.

    Just trying to avoid it, I've been lucky enough to avoid most of the issue I've heard thus far, sept the inability to choose a play every once and awhile.

    Based on your recruiting theory, I went back in and added another recruit to my board so it would resave and it worked.

    I'm also seeing a bug that anytime I run a counter with the running back next to me in the shotgun, as soon as I hand it off they blow the whistle calling him down. Anyone else seeing this?

    I haven't seen that, but I threw a hitch last night in an online game. As soon as my receiver caught the ball they blew the whistle, even though he was not touched or out of bounds.

    Hate to necro a thread...was looking for the scholarship guidelines but if you never found the answer to this it's your HB's height. The counter/shotgun bug will happen with an HB under 5'9 so just edit him :)

    I'm not even talking about that, though. Just trying to run no-huddle at the end of the game and after picking my new play, as soon as the team gets set the QB acts like he's calling another audible and every time, whether I'm at home or on the road, a WR acts like he can't hear the QB so I have to wait at least 5 seconds to snap the ball. I guess I shouldn't complain too much though since the clock doesn't start until the offense is all lined up.

    Its not just at the end of the game...its the entire game. Every time you audible it does that. At least it has for me.

    I've been okay with audibles at the line of scrimmage most of the game. It has just been when running the no-huddle for me.
