My game is messed up after an update

Hello,

I bought OOTP 18 on Steam a while ago and am in the process of playing a season. Today, Steam updated my OOTP game and when I went to load my season, all of my players had different names that didn't match up to their profile names and some players were labelled "Jim Unknown." When I tried to play the actual baseball game a message popped up that the game couldn't initialize or that the game had been postponed. When I tried to move the season to the next day, OOTP stopped working altogether and closed. I have tried restarting my machine, to no avail. The stats are still the same, the schedule and my record are correct, and it will show me my correct team leaders and correct box scores from my previous games.

How can this be fixed. I really enjoy your product.

didn't happen to have made a back-up, did you? That would be the easiest fix, just to roll the game back to update date. Otherwise, i don't know. Hopefully someone else can help, or you could post this in bug area and a developer could have you upload your files to see what happened. Good luck.

That's probably not directly related to the update, it sounds more like a corrupt league file. The first thing to try would be restoring from the auto-save function.

To restore from the automatic backup, do the following:

1) Open the game and on the start screen, click on Settings (or Preferences in OOTP 11-14).

2) Now click on the tab "Troubleshooting".

3) Click "Open folder containing saved games".

4) Now open up the league folder you're wanting to restore.

5) Then select all of the .dat files in the folder and back them up (just in case) by copying them to a temporary folder or creating a zipped file with them

6) Open the folder called "auto-save".

7) In there, select all of the ".dat" files and copy them to the league folder (the parent of the current folder) overwriting all of the ".dat" files in the league folder.

Now start the game and load your league. If it's successful, it will display a message letting you know it's cleaning up text files. This might take several minutes to complete (or even longer if the auto-save backup is older, like from the beginning of the year).

Let me know if that helps or not.

You can find a link to instructions in my sig, or just upload to dropbox or Google Drive and send me the link if that's easier.

OK, I am computer retarded or I can't follow simple instructions. Either way I can't seem to upload my files using those instructions. I got to the directory, but I couldn't figure out what to do next. Please help.

You should be able to just cut and paste the zip file that contains your league files into the directory.
