Default Out of Business Companies not actually out of business

Patch 1.14 I have companies that are bankrupt, have no owners, and show up as out of business still signing fighters and putting on shows.

Was there anything unusual about their bankruptcy? i.e. did you intentionally cause it, did it happen out of the blue, etc?

And were you under the latest patch when they went bankrupt?

I pre-set their bankruptcy right after the game started via the editor. I think the game may have started on a previous patch as it is a game I hadn't touched in months and just came back to. However, a new company opened yesterday when I was playing with the current patch. They haven't hit their pre-set end date yet so I don't know what will happen with them yet.

Could you clarify what you mean by "I pre-set their bankruptcy right after the game started via the editor" please? It sounds like you're setting the Closed By date, but this doesn't match the rest of your post as that would not cause a company to go bankrupt. Are you talking about editing their money into massive debt instead?

I set their close by date, that is correct, and they did not end up closing by that date, so I set their money to make them go bankrupt and that doesn't seem to be working, or at least is taking a long time.

It would take a long time, yes - it is the amount of time they're in debt that matters, not the amount.

What I am not understanding is if they didn't close on the date you set (which is correct, that's not what that feature does) and they've not gone bankrupt yet, what is making you believe that they're closed like your first post said?

The company profiles have a red x that says not currently active and the company is closed and has no owners.

Also, what is the purpose of setting a closing date for the company if the company actually doesn't close business on that date? I guess I'm confused by the purpose of that feature.

The closed date tells the game that the company closed at that point in time. It's used when starting a new game to decide which companies are still active. You can't use it to force a promotion to close. (This is covered in the company editor in the "?" button next to Close Date.)

From your description, you've been mistakenly setting this because you didn't know what it did, and that has tricked the game into displaying the company as closed when it is still active. I suggest you remove the Closed Date that you set and this will fix the display issue.

I can't turn off the closed date because it says I cannot change the closed date after they have gone out of business

I'd suggest you either use the Backup to go to the point before you made the change or you'll have to send me the save game to be manually fixed.
