    LARGE Announcement!

    Post  BSB Owner on Sat Oct 24, 2009 6:16 pm

    LEAGUE FILE UP TONIGHT

    I am going to put it all together now and begin uploading it immediately after.

    The website will also be put up, albeit a bare bones version.

    VIDEOS T.B.F.

    I didn't get a chance to film them yet, but they will be put up soon, including a draft order.

    DRAFT DAYS TO BE ANNOUNCED

    I need to know when you guys are available, especially tomorrow during the daytime. If not tomorrow day, tomorrow night might be our first draft day. I want to get this going. Each draft day will be ten rounds and their will be TWO days of drafting. This will be the same format for the Amateur Draft.

    Please post in this topic or email me your availability. If you can not make the time set and do not submit a list, you will be given your head scout's recommended player and also be given a strike against your ownership barring a previously given reason.

    cheers

    Congrats Rich!

    I'm available all day tomorrow.
    Weekday schedule - MWF 6:30-midnight EST
    TR 7:30-midnight EST

    I suggest we get at least half the league confirming schedules before we announce a draft time - 1 day might be too short notice for some.

    Live drafts are tough but I can make just about any time given enough notice (a coupl days)

    Typical schedule of availability is any day after 5:00 PST with Saturday's being the best day.

    I am in the middle of my work week. I work nights till 8am EST. I could keep a hawk eye on a forum draft and not miss anything provided I wasn't sleeping (daytime) but live draft is going to be nearly impossible this week cept for a small window that I will be home each day.

    I also am having hernia surgery on Thursday 7am so I likely will be either highly medicated for 2 days or just not around. (but I/we can worry abotu that when the days come)

    I am available Sun after 7pm eastern- kids have soccer tourney during the day.

    1 day notice is probably not enough to get 16 people on board.

    WOW.

    The new OOTP patch just screwed us all.

    I was uploading and it froze, shut down, and then deleted all my save files (included about four years worth of solo leagues and several hours worth of our league..) ... I am very upset about this patch.

    I wish it never came out. Worthless P.O.S.. Evil or Very Mad

    I am available a little after 8PM most weekdays. I do practice Tuesday night and have a show this Thursday night though.

    EDIT: As well, sorry for not being around the past 3 or so days. This past Tuesday I ended up leaving work incredibly sick and have been trying to recover since while also having to fill obligations like DJing a Halloween party last night and having band practice while feeling like hell. Still on the mend a bit but feeling a lot better than I was.

    looks like that's 9 of us so far... should we try to set a date for the draft?

    also, will it be a live draft through the chat room, or can we do something where more people can participate? (seems like there were a couple that would have a hard time making a live draft due to work schedules, etc)

    I am good whenever during the day or at night. I can usually check the forum/be in a chat at any time, unless I am driving to school (around 3-4) Mon. through Thurs.

    My availability will be spotty if we are looking to do a live draft. Why not use the utlility or even the formus with a time limit? I can make draft lists to carry me through the times I am not going to be around the computer. Again, the utility would be the best option but we need time limits to keep this from dragging.

    I am pretty much ready whenever.

    Edit - I am working evenings Mon - Thurs so I will be unavailable during that time frame.

    Weekends are best for me as I have them off. (Friday, Sat, Sun)

    Saturdays I am out of work at 6 and Sundays I am out at 5. If it weren't too late Saturday I could do it and anytime after 5 on Sunday I could.

    Rich just a heads up with X "freezing".

    I have noticed at time when you think it's stuck at 35% or so with both uploads and downloads, it is still uploading just the display might not be reflecting it. Same with downloading the new file for league memebers. Sometimes it just doesn't display great but it's still doing it's work.

    If you exit or stop forwhatever reason you could crash the game and lose some data.

    I would sugest that you do 2 things before you try and upload.

    # 1 Click backup league in the game menu. That will enable you to restore from backup.
    # 2 Save as template. Before you generate the inaug class save the league as a template so you can quick and easily get back to where you were initally incase you goof somewhere early as well.

    You can also copy the whole save game folder onto your desktop or another area and just copy and replace later as well if something gets corupted (which can happen at any time for now reason).

    eh...I'm willing to give Rich the benefit of the doubt. Although it's been pretty quiet the last few days after the big push to get the league file out got delayed. I for one am still hopeful.
