Start in Spring Training rather than at first game of season

Recommended Posts

Well even if it was able to start in the Spring, which sounds impossible, there would be player progression which has already been taken in consideration by the roster makers (KG, Totte, SwinginSoriano) and would throw the player stats out of whack.

It sounds like a lot of work for just one dynasty, but using Ty's importer and exporter, start a season in 2005, use the schedule updater to 2006, and export the rosters, stats, etc. Then sim the whole year, regardless of trades and FA signings and whatnot. Then, when Spring Training 2007 starts, import the rosters (which counters the FA signings and everything, replaces whatever 2006 stats were there) back into the game, and play it out. But make sure you have the imported .dat files backed up, so once the player progression is calculated, you can re-import the rosters and stats, and you will have played Spring Training in your dynasty with 2007 rosters and stats.

Would that work?

Yeah, you would need tywiggins' .dat importer/exporter. Here's the link to the thread if you got any questions, the newest version of it is available by clicking the link attached to the first post.

oh my it worked... finally, I get to enter a season the right way... thank you so much for the genius idea... This should defintely be some type of sticky and be included somewhere as a tool of some sort... I was able to do it with relative ease and as I went through it I saw how I could virtually use any roster I want and update as necessary as long as I keep some extra save slots available to save backups of the league I just created...

wouldn't it be possible for just one person to do this, then upload that dynasty file, and then people could use the team changer to change to the team they want to play as and that way they'd still be starting in spring training?

I have tried to upload the file here but I can't for some reason... I put it up as a misc download, lets see if it gets approved or what not...

superdee, you should've asked me before posting my roster without permission, but you're helping the community out here, so it's alright. Just make sure you ask me any other modder before uploading to the site.

Good utility, by the way.
