Invalid Player File

Hey! My file was working fine and all of a sudden I went to open the program and it says invalid player file when I start up. Does anyone know why this might happen? We just started the playoffs as well, maybe that has something to do with it....

Thanks in advance guys.

I moved one team with one game left in the season. Because in our league we want division winners plus next best two, so one division had the next best 2, so I had to switch them, would that cause a problem? it seemed to work while I had the program open before...

it's possible, usually 'invalid' files is from a change that was made, where information is not the same as it was before and the game can't use it. I'd suggest trying one of the 3rd party editors to check out your invalid file..... there is a bunch here: http://www.tresclub.com/downloads/downloads.htm

I am just going to guess the move is what did it, I hope one of those editors helps you find the error.

Obveously start with the team you moved and hope to see something that doesnt look right.

There are so many programs, which one is the easiest to work with having no knowledge of any of them.

I believe the computer freaks out when you move teams in between divisons, especially during the season. I know there are threads on this out there, so try searching.

In most cases the league file has become corrupt somehow and unless you have a backup of the league then it is useless.

I have the same problem. Here is what happened:

I bought Ootp 5 very recently and I just found about the real life rosters . I tried to add Roccos rosters and followed the read me's instructions and unzipped the files into the create folder in my ootp folder. Now as soon as I enter the game it says Player File invalid and I can't play anything at all....what did I do wrong. PLEASE PLEASE HELP. Thank you in advance.

Ok, you need to be "well versed" in using "unzipping" software and all of the various options. Chances are you did not unzip them either "where OR how" you thought you did. Have you looked inside of the "create" folder to see if they are where you "think" they are?

Maybe thats the problem?

My advice

I have tried million manual solutions but nothing helped,use a small tool available at long path, filename too long, file name too long, filename length restriction, path too long to resolve it and render it useable
