Long Snappers and Training Camp

You'll will need to sign a free agent center, tight end or linebacker (unless there's one on your roster) at a low-enough weight to convert to long snapper (220-280 pounds) and make that conversion before training camp or the CPU will convert one. You don't want that because they could change one of your stars into a LS.

by TurfToe at Fri Jun 06, 2014 11:26 AM

Just a heads up that I planned on working on the new game this weekend and get the upload in.

by Shooter at Fri Jun 06, 2014 12:00 PM

I sent a message to General Mike/Boise.

by timmynausea at Fri Jun 06, 2014 12:37 PM

Thanks guys..

by JJ Smitty at Fri Jun 06, 2014 02:08 PM

Plan on trying again on Sunday..... Having some troubles. Will try to contact someone if i get stuck.

by Aamalin at Sat Jun 07, 2014 09:31 AM

Upload was completed.

by Shooter at Sat Jun 07, 2014 02:11 PM

make sure you have version 7.0b

by JJ Smitty at Sat Jun 07, 2014 05:36 PM

I think my upload is there. I hope so.

by General Mike at Sun Jun 08, 2014 08:16 AM

My files are all currupt. Have to reboot the whole thing again. Trying again right now.

by Aamalin at Sun Jun 08, 2014 04:10 PM

Okay. I think I got it. Two quick questions. 1 .....If my coaches are under contract I don't have to do anything...2......Am I reading this correctly, Emmanual Cole didn't retire?????

by Aamalin at Sun Jun 08, 2014 05:03 PM

1. No, your good. Other than your assistance and strength coach.

2. No he didn't

by JJ Smitty at Sun Jun 08, 2014 05:52 PM

I should be uploaded correctly now.

by Masked at Sun Jun 08, 2014 10:52 PM

Please make sure you've upgraded to FOF7 and converted.

viewtopic.php?f=6&t=7769

Delete these files from your league folder,

viewtopic.php?f=6&t=7772

PM me if you need your team password.

** Open your multiplayer game and click "Import Game Files", this will grab the new league file.

It should be the beginning of 2039, with Preview Staff Draft,
Make stadium proposal, and retain staff.

1st stage file will be June 9th, it will be the retain staff stage and setting coach draft preference.


** We are going to run a preference coach draft through the game.

Instructions for the stage:
Open the Retain Staff window and when you click on "Finished with Renegotiations" the Set Staff Draft window will appear. This is where you will set your preferences for your coaches and the computer will draft them for you. Then export and your good.

Hopefully next season we can do a manual draft but this year we have to do it this way.

There are some big names on the retired list! QBs Cole and Paulk, RB Meyer, WR Brost, ...

by Taco at Tue May 27, 2014 01:17 PM

Whoa, and big jump in the league minimum salary! "The league's minimum salary has risen $280,000 to $970,000."

by Taco at Tue May 27, 2014 01:18 PM

Also big advice, when setting up prices, use the recommended ones, else you'll screw up your economy

by BreizhManu at Tue May 27, 2014 10:36 PM

Is the staff draft going to be run with the preferences we set or is it somehow going to be run live?

by bbriders at Tue May 27, 2014 11:38 PM

I figured out the problem, the stage file is corrupt. I'll need to restore the stage file and rerun it. I'll post when I've fixed it and you'll need to re import the stage on your end.

Sorry about this guys, something must have happened on my end when I ran the stage file.

by JJ Smitty at Wed May 28, 2014 06:23 AM

I'm going to try to get the draft app running so we can do the staff draft live

by Taco at Wed May 28, 2014 01:25 PM

I reran the stage and that fixed the problem. Now player history is correct and taco's stat problem is fixed.

Please re import the file and reupload your stage file.

Sorry guys, still trying to figure out the ins/outs of the new version.

by JJ Smitty at Wed May 28, 2014 02:47 PM

No problem man... I figured there would be some speed bumps on the way but in general the conversion has gone pretty smoothly all things considered. I'm excited to see if the new version shakes up the league and bring some new teams into the playoffs.

by Jander3456 at Thu May 29, 2014 09:56 AM

Thanks Thater

by JJ Smitty at Sat May 24, 2014 10:51 AM

there are more on mine

basicall every "q" and "p" file between 000 and 031 except your team# needs to be deleted. for example i have the .11 files in mine now:
.11
.11P
.11Q

also after i've removed the others teams .29 re-appears after importing.

by bighousebrock at Thu May 22, 2014 11:38 AM

Not sure..... I'm guessing no, but I'm working on it.

by Aamalin at Thu May 22, 2014 12:00 PM

Looks like I am upgraded. Need to figure out the mechanics. One idea is we should get a "How To in FOF Seven" thread started. Things like exports & other critical functions would be good to have for now and future new users.

by Shooter at Thu May 22, 2014 04:41 PM

Uh, I think I am ready.

by TurfToe at Thu May 22, 2014 06:36 PM

Exports are all handled in the game

once you log in, you get the multiplayer menu, which has options like "import game files" and "export stage file".

That's all you need, when you want to submit an export just import the data first, do the modifications and then export all through this menu, no need to upload a file like before.

by BreizhManu at Thu May 22, 2014 11:37 PM

I'm ready, maybe. I haven't put the FTP information in but other than that I think I'm set up and ready to go.

by Stretch at Fri May 23, 2014 08:15 AM

I think I'm good to go, too.

by bbriders at Fri May 23, 2014 05:59 PM

Locked and loaded.

by Raven Hawk at Fri May 23, 2014 10:44 PM

I think I'm good.

Once I removed the files that BreizhManu mentioned, it loaded fine.

by Dean Gullberry at Sat May 24, 2014 08:08 AM

Okay to go, I think.

by veg2052 at Wed May 28, 2014 08:23 AM

I think I'm good

by TLK at Wed May 28, 2014 02:12 PM

I am ready to go.

by rbeyer at Thu May 29, 2014 08:59 AM

I'm all ready... unless you have a time machine button I could use; most of my defense have been leaving practice early to get the senior special at the Golden Coral.

by Jander3456 at Thu May 29, 2014 09:42 AM

I'm all set.

by timmynausea at Thu May 29, 2014 09:56 AM

did you not get mine? i did send it.

by bighousebrock at Fri May 30, 2014 10:58 AM

My bad, I had you down as Ohio instead of Iowa City, my bad.

by thater at Fri May 30, 2014 02:18 PM

no worries
