Tutorial: Increasing Trade Flexbility - Ultimate Base Roster

Postby HAWK23 on Mon Jun 25, 2012 4:05 am

So you have downloaded Ultimate Base Roster V19 [256 Total Teams] + 2013 Rookies (CFs + Portraits Included) and you wish there was a way to easily move players between all of the teams (retro/historical/legend/current teams) but when you try to trade or move players you get this annoying message:
Image

This tutorial will show you (in more detail than probably needed) how to get past this to give you full access and unlimited trading flexibility. This method works for the Ultimate Base Roster and I can't promise success with other rosters.



#1: Start your game and get to the starting main screen:
Image





#2: Load the latest version of the Ultimate Base Roster by going to OPTIONS ---> LOAD/SAVE:
Image




#3: Click LOAD:
Image




#4: Click "YES" when it asks you if you are sure if you want to continue because you are going to lose any unsaved changes (yu just started the game so it doesn't matter anyway):
Image




#5: Select the latest version of the Ultimate Base Roster:
Image




#6: It will tell you it's loading... then it will tell you it's successful:
Image




#7: So you're probably thinking... ummmm no shit sherlock this is what I always do... what's the trick? The trick is to next, from the main menu start a season by clicking GAME MODES --> SEASON --> NEW:
Image
*Note you MUST select SEASON.... NOT association




#8: Go through all the screens it says to start a season... just keep clicking through them... you don't need to change any settings... whenever it asks you a question just say "YES". When it asks you to save the season just name it whatever you want:
Image




#9: Now you should be at the main menu screen of the new season you created. You should see a picture of LeBron James and Dwyane Wade with their hands on their chin with a picture caption below them that says "Heat are ready to silence critics" - the game is obviously already out of date! Since it's out of date you think to yourself, "well this sucks I don't want to play a season anymore" and you go to the main menu and click QUIT then say YES when it asks you if you are sure.
Image



#10: So now you should be at the starting main screen again:
Image




#11: Guess what? Now trading works. For whatever reason the game has tricked itself into giving full trading access now. You don't even need to go load the roster again... just go straight to managing rosters:
Image




#12: Let's trade Christian Laettner from the Dream Team (he didn't belong on that team anyway) for Isiah Thomas. First scroll over to the Dream Team and highlight Christian Laettner:
Image




#13: Then hit "A" or whatever button you press to select him. A screen will come up that will ask you what you want to do with him. Click "TRADE" then another box will come up to ask you to "SELECT A PLAYER FROM ANOTHER PLAYER TO TRADE WITH".
Image




#14: We were going to trade him for Isiah Thomas - so scroll to the 88-89 Detroit Pistons and highlight Isiah Thomas:
Image




#15: Once you've highlighted Isiah Thomas now you need to select him by clicking "A" or whatever button you used before to select Laettner. A warning message will come up confirming if you indeed want to "TRADE ISIAH THOMAS AND CHRISTIAN LAETTNER" the only person that says no to this is Michael Jordan - since you're not Michael Jordan you click "YES:
Image




#16: The final product looks like this:
Image


From there you can continue to make as many trades as you want and you can save whatever you do. Unfortunately you need to do this every time you load the game up (if you want to increase trading flexibility). You can either create a new season every time like outlined in detail above OR you can just LOAD a previously created season then exit for the same successful results.


Special thanks to MEGALODON for uncovering this awesome/useful trick!
