    Guys,

    I screwed up the league file.

    XFN requires you to be on Week 1 before it will sync to the off season. I've never advanced through a Madden 12 online franchise, so I made the mistake of thinking I needed to advance to week 1 after the draft was complete on the console. Instead, I advanced past week 1 to week 2.

    So, XFN is broken for us.

    I've contacted EA to see if there is a way for them to roll back the file on the server for us. If that doesn't happen, we may be done. We will talk about options at that point. I'm terribly sorry, this is my mistake for not understanding what I was supposed to do. I was hurrying to try to get this done tonight and screwed up.

    I don't even know how to express how sorry I am.
    Shaun

    That's ok, Shaun I am sure we will figure something out. If not we will bite the bullet and restart. The TMFL is stronger than this, we will survive.

    I hate this. It's terrible that I had to do this stuff with no notice or guide...talk about setting someone up to fail.

    If we are unable to recover the file, I believe we should talk options right now in order to figure out a back up plan and where we would go from here. I think some prudent planning is called for here in order to be prepared for any and all outcomes.

    The way I see it we have options:

    1) We can simulate a 3 seasons worth of TMFL on a new franchise file, and get us to the 4th offseason where we currently are. Doing the offseason tasks between each simulation of the league and running the draft. We may not have all the players we want but at least we can acquire some guys in FA and such.

    2) We can do a new franchise file with updated rosters and start fresh and new again.

    3) We can disband the league until Madden 13 comes out

    I see those as the three options we have.

    I would be in favor of option 1. We all enjoy the offseason and trades and the draft so we could try to hammer out the 3 seasons in a matter of a week or so. Catch back up with some of the rookies before we head into the 4th offseasons draft. But option 2 also works for me so either one I am okay with. I, however do not want to disband until Madden 13, but those are the three options if we are unable to reacquire the file.

    I'd never seen the administration stuff on XFN before yesterday OR the commish tools on Madden 12 prior to a couple of hours ago...it's no wonder I failed.

    I understand that and while those 4 days you are gone, we can have season one's simulation done on the console and during which like in GMFL I can run a skype chat for people who would like to be present for it and hear results. On Sunday we can proceed with season's one draft, using tomorrow to do trades and resignings. After that, we can do season 2 while you are gone and work on offseason tasks, such as trades and resignings until you return and allow you to handle your resignings and any deals you wish, conduct season's 2's draft, and sunday do season 2's draft as well as season 3 sim and begin offseason, and boom we are caught back up (y)

    Not a problem man, we will figure it out one way or the other and however it proceeds it proceeds. What is done is done, we all live and learn (y)

    It's an honest mistake man..sad to see some of it go. But on the bright side, simming 3 seasons wouldn't be all that bad..just play GM..

    If I knew yall were going into offseason so quickly I would have helped you! Don't forget I'm around here man if you have questions..

    I am cool with whatever we do...

    I work all day today and then have a planned dinner with my in-laws directly following work. It may be tough for me to have too much activity on the forums today until about 830 PM tonight. With that said, I will do my best to keep up with whats going on using my cell phone. If we happen to be required to do any prep work in anticipation of a draft tomorrow, I may be on the slow side of getting that information in as my day in jammed pack. Rest assure, i will do what I can in the most timely fashion possible, but I am handicapped today in regards to access to a computer. Just wanted to make sure that is communicated on the front end of the day.

    Don't sweat it Shaun , I think all of us that have played NCAA knows that these things are fragil anyway, no biggie.

    Far as my 0.02 I would be down to restart whole file or sim whole season , shit I have I my played a half I one game so it's whatever for me. We have a solid group of players here, we will be fine long term ;)

    We could start over and try to recreate our teams as best we can, year by year. Make the trades we have now and draft the players we have now until we reach this same point again.
