How can a commish fix these??

I expanded and manually added 22 players... thinking the free agency would corret t


free agency is broken on my league ..


So instead, when an injury occurs. they sign 'test contracts' ..


I went in and gave them a salary and such, but they still show on the roster as no salary, and in salary obligations ... so where is the change??


Also, when I found the free agency wasn't working.. i placed the players back on their original teams ... but they still show as being on vacation .... (although not seeing it aafecting anything thing, just not going away)

Can you upload the save so we can have a look at it? It sounds like there are a few different issues there, we'll probably need to see the whole picture to figure it out.

Still trying to figure out the cause of the problem. There are free agents available, there's enough money to spend, but for some reason teams aren't signing enough players to give them enough reserves to cover injuries. So, once or twice a year one of them reaches a game and doesn't have enough players to dress, so they get a player on those temporary free "tryout" contracts. That's a normal thing to avoid game-breaking lineup issues, but the team shouldn't be getting into that situation to begin with; we'll have to see why they're not signing enough reserves.

There is a way to convert the tryout contracts to normal ones, though: in the player screen, click on the "retired" box, then hit save. That'll reset the contract. Then unclick retired, enter the values you want for the contract, and edit the current team and contracted to fields to the team he was on (they'll be removed when you 'retire' the player.) That'll leave him with a regular contract.

Actually, the current team is grayed out .. unable to place him back on the roster, only give him the team rights to him (would the team activate their rights and sign him?)

How soon are players replaced when teams are below the game dressing limit?

Some time's I might move a player right before game time(especially goalies) and I am not sure if the teams have a back-up available at the start of the game.

He's still retired. You need to unclick the retired box before changing the team.

If it's right before game time, they'll bring in a replacement immediately, either via a callup or signing someone.

Jeff,

I don't think I have seen/heard so many others speak of a broken free agency ..

Doesn't it seem the expanding teams .. (perhaps in multitude) has created some kind of situation where the staff & free agents are getting signed, despite the money?

Are they related somehow you think?

Strange, it looks like something is preventing the team data from some of those players from being edited, we'll have to investigate further.
