    Pushing for Paydirt

    For those of you who don't know, PFP suffered an error that - for all intents and purposes - wiped out the OD's file early Monday morning around 1 a.m. I had hopped on to get my game in but the file didn't appear on my list of ODs and as users came on it didn't appear for them either. A bug report has been filed with EA through Ryno so we'll try to figure out what caused it.

    But, the important thing for you to know is that Bucs had a file saved at Week 9. Unfortunately, while our coaches were saved, we do not have the ability to join the OD as an existing coach. But we can alter the starting XP for coaches to the level we want, in this case Level 6 (where the vast majority of us were at prior to this incident). But that can only take effect AFTER the OD has advanced.

    The OD's name is PFPREBOOT. It is searchable and joinable.

    So what we will do is the following:

    1. All users will join up as swiftly as possible with a generic created coach. Doesn't matter his stats or whatever. Depending on what happened to you in Week 9, you must do the following.
    2a. Lost a CPU game: Supersim yourself a loss as fast as possible.
    2b. Won a CPU game: Supersim/play yourself a win as fast as possible.
    2c. Lost a user game: Go on the file and set yourself to auto.
    2d. Won a user game: Wait until your opponent has set themselves to auto and then supersim/play yourself a win as fast as possible.
    2e. Myself and gwill have to play our games and go as fast as possible on them.
    3. Once everyone has readied up, we will advance to Week 10.
    4. Retire your generic custom coach (everyone except Bucs).
    5. Rejoin the OD and create the coach with all the stats you want, playbooks, etc.
    6. The OD will then proceed as normal.

    This is a situation but as it stands, the only thing we'll lose is a few games W-L for our coaches stats, and a bit of momentum. But the faster we do all of these steps, the faster we can get back to rolling along to recapture that lost mo.

    Please acknowledge this post and then knock out all of the above steps ASAP.

    Acknowledged. I'll get to it later this evening. We've got the dreaded glitch where one coach doesn't get XP in The Flashback. Dealing with that tonight too.

    Because I am half, maybe 3/4 retarded, we retire our coach once we advance to week 10 right?

    Yes to both.

    But seriously, just yes to retiring your coaches. You retire AFTER we advance to week 10 and then immediately rejoin. Doing it this way keeps your recruiting board intact. The reason for this is so that we can change the settings so that starting coaches join with level 6 XP (where everyone was around, roughly, before this incident). That that way we keep our XP level so we're not all starting at level 1 while Bucs is at level 6.

    Any other questions, from anyone, feel free to shoot my way in this thread.

    That's only an issue if everyone's readied up by then. I would hope that they would be. If you're up to it, check back when you get home and advance if everyone's readied up.
