Is it not working in season 1, but then working every season after? Is that what you guys are seeing?

I think what people are saying is that the initial season is the best test because there is no training camp prior to that season to cause any development. Therefore, any changes occurring should be the sole result of inseason development. Changes aren't being seen in the first season leading people to believe that feature isn't working properly. After that, the changes appear to be training camp related and not true inseason development.

Right. I created a new league and got no movement until after training (the last week on the checklist). In my real league, I was already at week 21 of my second season before I looked at the screen (forgot about the feature) and when I did look, there was movement (my earlier screenshot), but I have no idea if that was all from training or if there was movement during the season. It seems everyone is saying that it is all training movement.

OK, I will do some testing on this area this weekend and see what's going on. I know the player development code is called numerous times during the season. I'm wondering if maybe the +/- display might not be working properly.

It could certainly be a display issue. A couple more data points for your debugging info:

1) I took a screen shot at the begining of my season 2 and then simmed through the year. All rating increases were exactly the same at the end as in the beginning, indicating no player development (or update of viz) in years following the first as well. This is true for the Personal, Off/Def Skills, and ST Skills displays.

2) Even after restarting the application from a shutdown, no player development appears. This means if the viz isn't being updated even on a brand new start-up and load.

3) I noticed that even after 2 years I have all " - " in the Attributes window for development. Do attribute changes simply not get reported here, or are my guys actually not increasing attributes even in the offseason?

Heres another strange screenshot. This was taken after the recruiting stage of season 2. Im sitting at week 18 of the offseason ready to do training.

I took a look at the development for attributes, since Arlie said they may not move much during the season. There is only one player on my entire roster thata shows any development at all in attributes. Im not sure why he would be the only one with numbers showing.

Another thing I noticed... The computer is still suggesting -5 adaptability when I click the suggest all button? I thought this was fixed in the 1.5 patch? Or does it just prevent crashing now?

I know your not planning on doing much more for the game, but if you are going to make a few more changes, would it be difficult to make the head coach name editable ? For multiplayer leagues to have the head coach show a different name than yours kind of stinks. Absolutely cosmetic, but a must for multiplayer leagues.

Ive been stuck with the name Tierre Tomich for 3 seasons now

Before updating the final version for the site, I am going to look at the player development issue and extra scholarship issue. Those will be the last changes for a while though.

I think I noticed some mistakes with the penalties. Isn't defensive holding only a 5 yd penalty? And when a facemask occurs, the penalty is assessed from the end of the play and the down is repeated. In other words if it is 1st and 10, and there is a 2 yd gain with a grasping the facemask penalty; the result would be 1st and 3, in the game it would read 2nd and 3.
