Franchise crashes at save

Postby rubberbandman » Fri Apr 19, 2019 2:30 pm

My 10+ season franchise suddenly started crashing at save in week 15. Interestingly, i can save in game, but not in the schedule sceen once the game is over.

To be more specific, here is what has happened so far.

I completed playing a game in franchise mode (week 15), saving a couple times per quarter. Every save went fine in game.

After the game was over it returned me to the weekly schedule, as normal, showing the result of the game I just played. I clicked File>Save, then it crashes.

When I open madden back up and reload the file it takes me to my latest in game save point. So I go back in, finish the game, and try to save again. Same result.

Next time I reload it, I go back to the weekly schedule (undoing my in game progress), and sim the game. It sims fine, and I am able to save the franchise without it crashing.

Next, I try to play another game with a different team in that same week. Again, saves in game fine, but after I finish and return to the schedule it crashes on save.

So I sim all the games that week, and advance to week 16. I play a game and finish and save and everything works fine! So thinking the problem fixed... I try to play another game in week 16 with another team, and again, upon completion I am unable to save the game.

Sorry for the long narrative, but I am unsure which of those circumstances or details may prove to be relevant. I have had this franchise going for 10+ seasons and would really like to keep going with it. Any thoughts on how to fix this anyone?

All I can ask is if you followed the Basic Troubleshooting Checklist, though I personally doubt that would solve that problem. I've seen that once before, but only once, and it was YEARS ago. I think I just did what you did and simmed past it. However, I had more problems once I got into the offseason, so I'd suggest saving often, and making a backup before you go into the offseason. You may want to convert it back to a roster and start a new franchise to be safe, especially if you get through the offseason with no problems. Proceed as normal for now, but keep a close eye on things and save often, with backups.

Update:
I simmed week 16 and then played two games in 17 and 1 wild card game... so far so good.

RevanFan: I will do as you suggest, saving continually and backing up as I go. If I get through the playoffs and the offeason I guess I'm in the clear. Hopefully it was just a random glitch.

If you get through the offseason, I'd suggest converting your franchise to a roster once you hit the preseason schedule. If you do that, you can start the franchise fresh and be less likely to have issues again.

Won't that cause the loss of all the player stats?

Yes, but that's just something you have to deal with for a guarantee that your franchise will work correctly. I end up doing it every few seasons in my franchise, usually. If you don't want to lose stats, just have the game save each stat report and game log as a unique file.
