Rosters Replaced With Random Historical Players


I am playing a historical dynasty starting in the 2014 season. Everything was going well until tonight when I loaded the league. For some reason, every player on every roster (majors and minors) was replaced with completely random historical players. For example my Mets starting 1B is now someone named Jim Pittsley, and when I click on him I get a page for a 63 year old named Willie Norwood... all players are like this.

Another strange thing is that the standings (I'm about 70 games into the first season), box scores, even individual stats (league leaders, etc.) are all saved and are correct in the league records. It's just the rosters that are totally messed up. Is this type of thing common? Is the league file corrupt or something? Any help would be appreciated.

I'm new to FTP but I'm pretty sure I uploaded the league files correctly. They should be in a zip folder called "jackattackbug." Let me know if I need to submit a ticket or provide anything else.

I can take a look, but that definitely sounds like it's a corrupt league file.

First thing to try would be to try to restore from the autosave.

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).
