PSA: Important Information Regarding Save Reset Bug

Postby Leftos on Fri Oct 24, 2014 10:07 am

I've had a small number of reports from users where their MyLEAGUE/MyGM save would reset when in their save and visiting the team select screen after selecting "Play Game" or loading an in-game save.

This is caused because of an edge-case bug that occurs when you select a custom roster using the Y/Triangle button in Quick Game. If that's one of the last things you did (independent of whether you played the quick game or not) before you load your MyGM/MyLEAGUE save, then it is possible that visiting the team select menu in your save might reset it.

To avoid this from happening, DO NOT load a MyGM/MyLEAGUE save after using a custom roster in quick game. Restart the game completely by closing the application and starting it again in between.

UPDATE: A user notified me to the fact that this is also happening if you use a Custom Roster in the Team Select screen for a Freestyle or other practice. So let me generalize this and say that if outside of a game-mode you've selected a Custom Roster in Team Select via the Y/Triangle button, DO NOT load your MyGM/MyLEAGUE saves without restarting the game.

This should not affect anyone that doesn't use custom rosters for quick game. In any run of the game where you didn't use a custom roster in quick game, you're not at risk of having your MyGM/MyLEAGUE save reset.

We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience and are looking to have this fixed without the need for a workaround as soon as possible.

I have to personally thank the community members that helped me track down this rare bug. Your help is immensely appreciated. Again, apologies.

Edge cases are the most annoying things associated with programming. I feel your pain.

I never customized my rosters in any mode. I'm wondering if MyCareer also counts on this bug?

Official 2K roster reverts back to old/original roster and the new roster does not show injuries for the players.

Thks Leftos.

Yes, any edits you do using the roster creator count as a custom roster. But unless you use it in NBA Today/Quick Game using Y and then go into your MyLEAGUE/MyGM save, you're safe. Just remember, if you used a roster with any edits in quick game, restart the game before loading up a MyLEAGUE/MyGM save.

Leftos...why was there a need to overhaul the roster implementation from 2K14? It worked fine, you could edit the rotations by adding players that were on the IR list, or change lineups. I personally don't like the new system. Also..why did 2K remove the save game feature in quick games, where you could return later to finish a game?

Uncle Drew, this is completely unrelated and off-topic to this. If you want to discuss the way rotation editing is implemented this year, I'd be fine with that in another thread, not in this one.

Ok my bad... Srry, but what about the save game question? Isn't that kinda related to this thread?

Leftos, please, try to make possible "save as" option or a backup mode for MyPlayer or MyLeague, actual system its too risk for this modes, im here playing 3 or 4 season with 82 games...

So, imagine....after 2 complete seasons, a have some bug to DELETE MyLeague save....

While it isn't as convenient as a manual save option, making a manual backup of the save file is probably a viable workaround in the meantime.
