Custom Rosters

SDS

Hello all,

Does anyone know how to correctly load one's CUSTOM ROSTERS when starting a new Franchise mode? I spent days customizing my starting rotations/bullpens and line-ups for all 30 teams. However, when I want to start my new FRANCHISE, I do have the option to play with default rosters, current rosters or load my own CUSTOM ROSTERS. I choose to play with my CUSTOM ROSTERS but when I look at the rosters they are NOT the ones I spent days customizing. They appear to be the default rosters. This is not cool! Can anyone help? Is this a bug? Thanks in advanced.

turn CPU roster control ON so teams don't reset their own rosters, which does happen even after loading customs

I posted this in another forum... but this is how you get the lineups and rosters to stick.

During spring training it brings all the guys on your 40 man to the mlb level if you start with a 40 roster or it will auto populate the 40 man if you start with a 26 roster. At any point during Spring Training go to the roster section within franchise and for all 30 teams drop the guys back down to the minors to where they were originally, it will use an option but when you advance to the regular season all the lineups and rotations stick. I don't care about the options getting used because I don't carry over year to year. I used 2 profiles, my profile and a cpu profile when starting the franchise. 29 teams on the cpu profile. You can pick and choose which game specific options are on auto and which are on manual for the profiles. You set up the profiles outside of franchise.
