I say 150. I had a PS2 roster a few years ago with that number without any problems.
Retired from the Fourm. I check back in once a month, sorry in advance for late replies.

I can't seem to sim the Lions-Bears game this week. I'm in year 7 of my franchise and I reordered all the depth charts and both teams had 4 coaches and all players were filled in key positions. Any help?

I did a fantasy draft franchise and the games won't sim because there are 2409 free agents. I have no clue where they came from and don't know how to get rid of a lot of them. Which is about 2000? I don't want to delete it, any help?

Heyhoo...!

Firstly, thank you all for your terrific work and these incredible mods. You can`t imagine how much this community appreciates your endless work.

I downloaded a roster yesterday and since then the game always freezes after the coin toss. I looked for solutions and, thus, checked the breakdown for the required positions. However, all NFL franchises got the required number of players but there are two FA teams. The second FA team is lacking of a Punter, I guess. I do not know how to fix it. I tried to trade a punter from the FA team to the FA 2 team but the trades was always rejected since "Player x does not have a contract". Does anyone know how to fix it? Of course, it could be a different problem as well.

Update: I assume there are two issues. On one hand, for any reason the depth chart reordering cannot be changed and, on the other hand, the "Extra Free Agents 2" team got too many players. So, How can I delete this team and how can I save the depth chart reorders?

Update 2: I deleted legion of FA players in those two teams and reordered the depth charts of them but still....it freezes. Any recommendation?

I'm not sure if that FA team needed a punter or not, but that wouldn't cause this problem. When a crash occurs after the coin toss, that [typically] means something is wrong with one of the teams' rosters. Try re-ordering both team's' depth charts, making sure their substitutions aren't corrupted, don't have 56 or more players, and every player has a contract. I think you'll find it if you look hard enough.

Is it possible to make a manual depth chart switch that will cause crashes? A certain position that, even though the game allows you to put a player there, will still cause crashes in game?

Follow answer to my own question: Yes, it is possible. I had a roster problem that was crashing my game. I reviewed the roster in question and made several changes. Unfortunately I'm not sure exactly which change I made that fixed the problem...but something wasn't working and after I moved several players around...the roster stopped crashing.

HI,

Thank you for all the help on the Madden MOD, I am just having difficulty with my Franchise Mode. I am able to Simulate all other Games however whenever I Simulate the Game of Team I selected It crashes.

I have Checked on the Following

1) Roster : Each Team has 55 Players (Complete in Every Position)
2) Dept Chart: Each position is filled with players
3) I have 428 Free Agents and 428 FA2 some though still has existing contracts
4) Every Player in the team i selected has a contract

Hope you could help me guys

Thank you very much!

Did you make sure the depth charts were auto-reordered?

You should not have an FA2 team in franchise, and no free agents should ever have contracts.
