Re: Bug in Free Agent Signing

Yes, exactly. They should still be able to sign free agents to new contracts when the signing bonus is 0, but the sim won't allow it.

3.1.6 - Bug in Free Agent Signing

The sim will not allow me to sign a player to a team that has less than $0 using the Manual Free Agents dialog. Even when the signing bonus is $0, I get an error that says: TEAMNAME doesn't have enough money to sign this player because of the bonus. Teams with less than $0 must be able to sign new p...

Re: Injured Reserve

I've just had several teams getting into roster violations for being over the limit. I guess it's after injured players come back to CD 95+, but GMs then seem to get stuck with players who have to pass through waivers and nobody wants to lose a guy for nothing. It has caused the sim to error: cannot...

Injured Reserve

This season, we found that we had some issues with teams going over the roster maximum due to having too many injuries. It would be nice (and cool from a realism perspective) for GMs to be able to move players to an injured reserve status, where they don't count against the pro roster. I think in th...

Re: Error: You are running an out of date version of SimonT Hockey Simulator V3!

I updated to the newest version on the simont website to allow the league to keep going. It is just very frustrating for us to get this error mid-season. We do not want to make any changes to the software in the middle of the season. It is not fair to change the game for the GMs in the middle of a s...

Error: You are running an out of date version of SimonT Hockey Simulator V3!

No, I am not. Why is this error still a bug in the sim? Just because it is a new year, the sim that I downloaded and have been using since the start of the season should continue working.

Re: Team Attendance more influenced by roster/results

We set Morale to the lowest setting, as per the recommended settings in the re-rates package. We've found that even at this low setting, morale seems to still have quite an effect on games.

This is the first time I've heard of "star power", so no I don't think we've used it - is it new in ver. 3?

Team Attendance more influenced by roster/results

This has been an ongoing issue for us for many seasons. Crappy teams still make money. LOTS of money. They sell out games even when they have farm players on their roster and have lost almost all their games all season. They make as much money as winning teams with star players. Can we get an option...

Re: SalaryAverage not always correct in sim/XML

This seems to have worked. I spot checked a couple of players who had incorrect averages before and they are correct now.

SalaryAverage not always correct in sim/XML

I recently upgraded from ver. 2 to ver. 3 and noticed that the "Salary" field in the XML output has changed to an array. Since in our league every year of a contract is always the same salary, for my purposes I figured I could use the SalaryAverage field instead. But I ran into a problem. The Salary...

2.3.6 - XML Outputs don't match sim

I updated to the latest version of STHS 2 in order that my league not be stopped mid-season again for an expired version, but I noticed a weird issue with my XML. The draft pick data in the XML is not even close to what is displayed in the simulator. For example it looks like each team has several "...

Re: ERROR: You are running an out of date version

So existing, legitimate customers have to suffer in a vain attempt to stop a few kids from stealing? There's got to be a better way. I spent several hours dealing with the format of the transactions XML changing in the middle of the season. Not only is the date no longer part of the transaction, but...

Re: ERROR: You are running an out of date version

Simon, As you told us there is no choice but to change versions of the sim to get around this bug, I updated to the 2.3.3 (latest version). As I suspected, there were problems. The first one showed up immediately: the XML format has changed for Transactions.xml. Now I have to spend the evening re-co...
