You MUST DOWNLOAD THIS DOCUMENT:
....Microsoft Excel sheet That Timothy Stratten initialy created (Thanks Tim!) and DoctorHay and Myself kept working on. Print It up And Set up your FIXED DYNASTY
Step by step instructions to FIX the sim engine:
It makes no difference whether you play Varsity, AA, or Heisman. The sim Engine doesn't recognize the level you play on as a Factor.
Download the spreadsheet and print it up. Make sure that the document is configured properly for your print set up so everything gets printed, ie. no missing categories.
Turn on your xbox, (or Ps2), make sure you have the roster loaded you want to start a dynasty with. Make sure that your AI settings are loaded that you want to use in your dynasty.
Be in a comfortable chair, with a new pack of Ciggs, a clean ashtray, a Notepad and pencil, and a pot of coffee....your gonna be here for a while.
Select Game Mode "DYNASTY", pick the team or teams that you are going to play with and start it.
Now the fun starts, go to "Coaching Strategies".
Before you get into this, take the phone off the hook, it get's confusing as hell if you get distracted by someone that makes you stop.
It is a lot easier while doing this if you scroll through the teams in the game to the first team on the list in the excel spreadsheet, AKRON. Make up your mind that the sequence will be to adjust both all of the offensive, and all of the defensive coaching strategy sliders for each team in the alphabetical sequence that they appear in the spreadsheet on a Team by Team basis, following down the list in the spreadsheet...otherwise you might lose your place....don't want to do that.
EXAMPLE OF HOW TO DO EACH TEAM:
Move the slider untill it reflects 57%RUN/43%PASS
Move the slider ALL OF THE WAY TO THE LEFT UNTIL IT IS EMPTY,(0%), then COUNT BACK TO THE RIGHT 13 "Clicks, this will represent "13%".
Since this is above 50% for this particular team, it is EASIER to move the slider ALL OF THE WAY TO THE RIGHT FIRST, this will represent 100%, then COUNT BACK DOWN TO THE LEFT 33 "Clicks". This is now representing 67%-(100% minus 33%=67%)
Akron's offense is now done, now do the same Process for Akron's DEFENSE
After the Defense is done for AKRON you will scroll to the next team on the list.."AIR FORCE". BE CAREFUL that you are on AIR FORCE'S OFFENSE Before you start moving things around....You want to make sure every step of the way so their is no doubt in your mind when you are all done that you have adjusted everything to the exact values that are displayed in the spreadsheet.
Do this for ALL TEAMS. (I know it sux), Don't worry, after you do a few teams you will get a feel for it and be able to establish a Flow that will make it much faster than you think.
Ok, it's now a couple of hours later and you just finished FIXING all of the Teams...........
BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING ELSE SAVE YOUR DYNASTY NOW so no matter what happens later on, you can always start your dynasty over from this point..You don't want to have to do this again.
READY TO PLAY?
Ok, Your a Hardcore Player, you want to start playing right now even though your Left Thumb is tired from "Counting Clicks".
Let's say that YOUR TEAM is the mighty MICHIGAN WOLVERINES,(Go BLUE!). The first game on your schedule is NORTHERN ILLINOIS.
BEFORE YOU START PLAYING YOUR GAME
Go to COACHING STRATEGIES
Put all of the Coaching Strategy Sliders For both MICHIGAN and NORTHERN ILLINOIS back to their ORIGINAL SETTINGS which I have documented for you on Page One of the excel spreadsheet.
Play your Game
After your game is over, RE ADJUST THE COACHING STRATEGY SLIDERS BACK TO "The Fix" settings, using the spreadsheet. This will insure that the team you just played against keeps simulating it's other games realisticly.
Sorry for the delay getting it up on the site, But Helli sent me an Email letting me know he was going to put it up this evening when he got home
