I was going to draw names out of a hat, but then it would delay the process as we would have to wait for everyone to pick their team....so i made it first come first serve. :cool:

Guys feel free to post any transactions, as soon as I get the file i will update it.....

Keep in mind the 24 hr rule about FA signings....but trades will automatically be submitted and updated....so feel free to view the franchise offline, you can download it from my ea locker under IIShutdownII....

"Spawning" is basically what you will have to do in the franchise. It's a method you use to play your game online vs an opponent for a franchise..... I can show you later today if you wish...It may seem complicated, but it's fairly easy.

No formation shifts? Why not? People do it in the NFL all the time (look at Norv Turner's offense). That is a part of my offense, I think it should be allowed....

Formations shifts can cause a player to be out of position (I.e. A WR at the TE position)....but i guess we can make it legal, with certain exceptions, like if a WR becomes the TE, then he automatically becomes ineligble....it's just not fair when you can shift on offense and you can't shift on defense.

btw i thnk if this league gets any bigger then 12 teams itll fall apart because itll be too many ppl to rely on...just my 0.02


Well, this is the first time we do this on Finheaven, but i think we're going to do just fine, regardless of the amount of owners we have....So far we are doing great and we're right on track....This franchise may go at a 1 game per week pace....so most of us can get at least one game in...and it's a franchise....

Panthers will be doing his TC tonight....and after he's through, it'll be the next person on the TC list....


If anything, My major concern would be the spawn error and finding a way to around it...

But I think i will worry about that if the time comes....in the meantime,

KEEP UP THE GREAT JOB GUYS!!!


BTW, PT, what team did you want??? you signed up as Ravens, but you want the rams...so which is it????

Prime Time
11-04-2005, 09:16 PM
Ravens...

Okay so shifting is allowed? Good. I still don't understand completely how that Spawn crap works, so I'll need your help when the time comes.

Its all part of the offseason....make sure you guys read through the forums....

You can began sigining FA, however there is a 24 hr waiting period from the time you post, before your FA officially signs, this gives other owners an oppertunity to match offers...

11-05-2005, 02:00 PM
yeah but do we hvae to DL the file then try to sign the guy, then reupload it for each FA we'd want?

no, i can do that, all you have to do is post it on the forum.....but remember there is a 24 hr rule from the time you post so people can match offers....you can always view the franchise offline to see if you can try and make trades or to view the FA's....

But regardless of everyones transactions....you have to post it....so everyone knows about that transaction

Predaphin

no, do not proceed with your Training camps until i let you know....I got busy this weekend and was unavailable Sunday...Sorry about that guys...

I was just informed that Raiders (Amars) has finished his TC, however, i need to have access to the file (he's finished but hasnt made the file public)...

Guys, please keep in mind that when you finish with your TC and you save it, please make sure you click where it says "Make this file public" or else no one will have access to it...I will update the forum

sounds good, but i need Raiders to make the file public before we can do anything else....i will coordinate TC with you guys tonight through AIM....and I promise everyone will get a chance to finish TC.....keep in mind TC lasts about 30 mins to finish.

It would be great to try and have 2 teams do TC in one day....but I can only do so much with my schedule....

also, keep in mind this is everyones franchise....i'm just trying to coordinate it, therefore, feel free to try and access the file from the person who currently has it....you can do this by AIming each other or emailing each other and asking if they;re done with the file....

couple things...

first everyone needs to add everyone as a friend on the EA messenger, so we can access each others locker to get the files... i just sent out a friends request to everyone that signed up, and everyone else needs to get all the other people on their friends list...

second preda, you shouldn't close those threads with instructions and **** on the other board, cause if someones got a question about something itd be nice to ask in that thread...

for example you say this...



The offseason will be up until Monday, Oct. 31 2005. The The Franchise will be in my ea locker under "IIShutdownII". The Franchise filename is "FHFran".

Before you start your offseason, if you haven't already make sure you download the profile from my locker and rename it. Make sure you change your settings to the appropiate, and rename them also.

All fair play options are off. However you must still abide by them.

Before you go on line to play the offseason, make sure the sgml settings are loaded and make sure your (team name) FHProf profile is active.

When you play the offseason, you take the file offline. Do not play the offseason without the sgml profile (which you can only edit the name) active,... or the sgml settings loaded.


so i DLd it, renamed it... but then you say sgml settings, is this that same file? whats these sgml settings?

sorry about the confusion, but just ignore the SGML file, that's from another franchise league....I must've been thinking about the other frnachise...

Just ignore SGML....

but what i do to make it helpful is save a Profile with the franchise settings in it and the team that i won in the FH Franchise...

for example: I'm the CHiefs, so i made a Madden profile with the chiefs as my team and the proper settings, so everytime im going to play a franchise game i just load that profile....

Just makes it easier for me, thats why you'll see FHPro in my ea locker....but ignore any SGML files from my locker....i will be removing that file anyway...

PT, when the time comes, i will walk you through it....don't sweat it, it's easy....

right now, all you have to do is wait till the file comes to you...but if you would like to view the progress of the franchise, you can download it anytime from my EA LOCKER and view it offline, this way you can see whos available for trades or signings....

Colts (Banzaitey) your up next for TC, grab the file from my ea locker...it;s ready for you...

I'm sorry guys, I feel like I let you all down....Again I apologize, but this is sucking up alot more of my time then I thought it would.....we were almost done through training camp, when I've decided to put the franchise on hold....I'm putting alot of OT at work (will need it for Christmas)...but if I decide to resume, i will let you guys know...

Again, my sincere apology for taking up your time for those of you who completed TC, and thank you for particpation.
