    SIM WEEKS 9 & 10

    G-Unit and I have decided to try and get this back up and running since it looks like we may have quite the wait otherwise...invites have been sent out, get on and SIM your week 9 stuff asap. Be sure to erase any files you may have related to this OD from your hardrive. Hopefully we can knock out week 9 early enough tonight to also be able to get thru with week 10 and be back on track with week 11. If not let's definitely be back on track sometime tomorrow...and let's all pray for clean advances lol

    Alright. I don't know how these advances will go considering they get jacked up every other time we advance but I guess it's worth a try. I'll take care of it tonight.

    week 9 ready.going forward i say we try something new or at least a bit different. i used all my recruit time, but i set ready to advance anyways. normally when i used all recruit time i wasn't required to so going forward im going to do that. just a minor difference but who knows.

    Were trying to move on in the mean time. Hack's got his EA connection looking at our file/situation.

    I will advance us to week 10 tonight after JFunk gets on to sim his week 9. We'll have to sim week 10 but if all goes well we will be on week 11.

    Some of you have voiced concern or disapproval of doing this, but I don't see the harm in trying to get back on track. Obviously we are dependent on what Hack's EA contact can do, but trying to keep moving in the meantime couldn't hurt. We've already had to sim what we're doing now so it's not like we're messing with the stats. Another faulty advance would not set us back any further, and even if EA fixes our problem we'd have to sim back to where we were anyways. So why wait to do that?

    That's why we're doing what we're doing.

    I save each advance. I believe G-Unit was in possession of the file when we were last in week 9 and he forgot to save, that's why we are re doing week again. I could be mistaken though. Don't worry about saving the files, it's taken care of.

    Hood, when you advance... you are deleting the save file for the dynasty off your hard drive before you do so right?

    Each time we start over I delete the file before getting us going again...I don't delete it each week when I advance, just save over. Once I know all the games our in I enter the OD and save when the save prompt comes up before going to the HQ, then I advance us.

    Jam, sorry about the defeat.

    I am trying to advance us but Noknee's damn Irish team keeps winning the SIM against me. If I ever get the win we will advance

    I remember i used to delete the file before each advance and it worked flawlessly. Just a thought if it happens again. hopefully it doesn't.

    Shadow, I will start deleting the file like you suggested from now on...hopefully that can be the fix we needed.

    Drunken, I will set him to auto next time I go on. Sorry for forgetting to do that in the 1st place. Remember, your sim score should somewhat resemble the original outcome, the final differential in points should be within 10 of what it was when actually played.

    Yeah the safe bet was once everyone had the game in, i'd go to my game files and delete the OD save, log back in to the dynasty(not saving the file), advance, and repeat the process when it was time to advance again.

    well I can't do that...we need a file saved in case it gets messed up again. One I know we are ready to advance I'll delete the file from my harddrive, go to the OD and save, then advance to the next week.

    Do you have a flash stick(datatraveler) you could save the file to that when everyone is done, then delete the file from your hard drive before you advance. Kind of a pain in the ass, but if something screws up you will still have the up to date file.

    I do not...but I am hopeful it'll keep working since it worked last night...only time will tell I guess. And by the way, there hasn't been any word from EA the last few days, hopefully we will hear from them soon.

    let me just say this to make sure its out there and i understand. the way i see it is this...

    1) hood logs into dynasty and says no to save.
    2) hood advances the dynasty.
    3) advance is successful.
    4) hood backs out of college football.
    5) hood deletes previous saved file off of hard drive.
    6) hood logs back in and says no to save.
    7) once in dynasty hood saves the file at the beginning of every week before any games or recruiting.(basically 2 minutes after the deletion of file from hard drive)

    *to me this seems do-able although i dont know if it will work or not.
