Looks like I messed up when I pasted the links into the title page and pointed them to the internal editor version, which is behind a login. Should be fixed now.

How long will have you let it run like that on that date? There are a few different global roster management things that happen on November 1, so it can take a while to get through them all for every league - the multiple simulating messages are just going through different processes.

Calgary has Markus Granlund on the right point of the first unit and David Jones of all people on the second unit. Buffalo is running Stafford and Armia. Ducks are running Stewart and Sekac. And so on... my coach wants to put Tuomo Ruutu on the point.
As intended, although the choices may need some improvement. Only a small minority of NHL teams use two defencemen on each PP unit now.

Signed one of my guys to a contract with a no-trade clause in it. He stank it up over the next couple of years...so I traded him without issue.

I am having the same problem, but on a different date in the game. I do notice that my ECHL now has a salary cap of $116,633,974 which may explain why my ECHL team is below the floor.

Doesn't appear that we're able to resign coaches/scouts/etc to new contracts when they're going to expire.

CHL previous drafts are empty; names/first names not taking

Two issues:

1) For the CHL teams, neither their respective entry draft logs nor the import draft logs have any players in them past the 2014-15 season. This may be because I don't have the CHL selected as a playable league, though, as the logs fill in fine for the NHL.

2) I wanted to add some first names and surnames to the database. I updated the files in the documents folder, but they didn't take. I am sure they didn't take because subsequent tests showed no signs of the names being used by the database. Is it not doable to add names to the database yet?

Bug: If you start a new game, play it for a while, and then return to the main menu to make a new game, a bug will occur. The new game will begin creating, but will not reach the "select playable leagues" screen, and instead will say "a game with this name already exists". The game will be created, but with a random user name/data, and will not be stable.

Since this was an issue more with the starting menu, I didn't know if you needed a game, but I uploaded one anyways to the file server under the name "pbbm game 1.lg.zip"

Right, they don't draft if they're not playable, so the logs stay empty. Players are moved to the teams by other means.

The names are built into the league start files, so no, not possible right now. If you want to add a small number of them, what you can do is start a game, add a few players with those names, save the file as a quickstart, then start again with that quickstart, and the names should be incorporated into the name database for that game.

Mode: historical league

Type of bug: in-game links

With what?: Home Page for Teams; DIVISION STANDINGS box & links

What's happening?: When you click to view a team in the standings chart, it's sending you to the wrong team/division/invisible team. In other words, we can't naviguate using the Division Standings box on Home Team Page.

Contract negotiation bug

When negotiating free agent contracts, I have had a few guys, when I select "Meet Demand" it offers the player a two-way contract.

Then when I ask for his response, he tells me he's an NHL player and won't accept a two-way contract (despite it supposedly being his demand to have one) After receiving this message, I cannot unclick the "Two Way" box and therefore can no longer negotiate with that player.

Also, on a similar note, every time I do offer a two-way contract it defaults to a $39,000 per year offer. I have never had one player accept that term and I signed a ton of 20 to 24 year olds to stock an expansion teams farm club. It would be nice to set your own default wage for a minor league contract, because I had to offer it, have it refused, then keep tweaking the number higher over and over again.

I'm on Windows and no matter what preference screen size I select under Windowed (don't want to do full screen), it doesn't show the advance button in the game screen.

I seem to have the upper part of the screen but it cuts off the lower part of players attributes and scouting reports.

I could just about put up with that but after spending hours tweaking with my line-up and simming through the pre-season I've gone to play a game and can't see my line-up at the bottom of the screen and what I assume must be some sort of start game button as I can't get the game started and have to quit FHM 2 as I'm stuck!

Any solutions being worked on guys?

When creating an online league, I set my manager to 'commish mode', 'cannot be fired', and 'fog of war'. After I created all the other managers with only 'cannot be fired' and 'fog of war', I started the game. My manager did not have commish access (and neither did any of the other managers). I was unable to set 'play in commish mode' for my manager after the fact, forcing me to try again and create an entirely new file.

If you add more than one GM the game will be defined as online league and it is not possible to change "commish mode" in an online league after the game is started. Are you sure that you have enabled "commish mode" for your manager, I have checked it and it works properly.

I'll double check but I'm fairly sure I had it set. I'll recreate the same circumstances and try again with a newly created game.

This has happened 4 times over the last 3 days.
Playing Fictional League(commish mode)
Action: Expanded
Pbp and clock speed: Fast

The game freezes after a few seconds and won't continue. The only way to get out of the situation is hit the sim end tab.
