    All you guys who bought it are gonna hate me for this, I have very bad news. If you don't own it, well here's one more reason to pass.

    If you complete a season in franchise mode, and get passed the off-season stuff, you'll find that your next season is 15 games or less. Absolute bullcrap! :mad5: Supposedly not all game discs are affected (I got this info from the IGN boards), but I just simulated an entire season and playoffs and sure enough, bullflop. I bought a guarantee with my disc but I'm not sure if there's any point to returning it, since the store is likely full of the bum discs.

    I suggest you sim a season in franchise like I did just to see if you were affected. Please don't hurt the bearer of bad news - my nerves are shot as it is. At least you can play a season and then change teams next season, but dang I was hoping franchise mode was good. Apparently not.:wtf:

    i heard about this.. i also heard its not for everyone. Some people havent had a problem with. I havent played much so i dont know if mine is like that... of course 2k wont do anything about it and they cant do a patch because they were too lazy to add online.

    I noticed that, and my Playoffs were only One Game each, no series.
    I thought maybe I changed settings or something by mistake, guess not. I played about 15 normal games, and went 14-1 so I said "time to sim". After I was like, whoah what happened to the season :lol:

    Good thing I rented this one.
    Even 2K6 for Gcube was better than this.

    I haven't tried franchise yet, but, on another topic, has anyone messed with the custom difficulty sliders in this Wii game to tweak the gameplay at all? I'm wondering if anyone has come up with slider settings that work well for them! :confused:

    Yeah every time I clobber the other team I take my batting contact down, and turn the computer AI up. My last two games I only won by 1 run, so it's set well for me.

    As for the glitch, I emailed tech support at 2Ksports and politely asked to exchange the disk. No response :lol: I guess they don't care. It's a shame too because it really is a nice game, it just seems like they ran out of time halfway through playtesting and released it with bugs left in it.

    There are many other glitches. One time I was not allowed to put in a relief pitcher, poor Marcum had to finish the game with 60% stamina. Also sometimes the announcers seem to be watching another game entirely, or think my catcher and 1st baseman traded places.

    Like I said, go simulate the first season, playoff, and offseason in franchise. I'm curious to hear if you have the major glitch or not.

    BTW, there is a workaround for the Wii franchise glitch, posted on 2kSports site at http://www.2ksports.com/forums/showthread.php?t=163317 and a discussion at
    http://www.2ksports.com/forums/showthread.php?t=163564&page=8

    Basically it says:

    3/13 Update - 2K Sports is aware of the Nintendo Wii franchise mode issue in which errors occur within a saved franchise. If you have experienced these problems, please use the following method to restore your franchise to correctly functioning:

    - Create a new franchise completely
    - Open the old franchise you are trying to fix
    - The franchise should operate correctly

    ^thanks. That is a ***** starting a new franchise then reloading the old one, but if it fixes the problem, then it's only a minor inconvience.

    Edit - tested it and it definately works. Just remember to do it before playoffs, as they can be limited to one game. This totally made my day, You are a God(send)! :worship:

    lol,i learned the playoff lesson the hard way,luckily i won all the games,the world series is just another REGULAR GAME. When the game goes into that final world series game and then at the end you win the world series they just act as though it was a "tough win"

    Homeruns go to negative

    I created my own player and started using him in franchise mode. Once I got up to 127 or 128 HR's, I am not exactly sure which one, the value turned to negative and started running backwards (or forwards technically) for each homerun I hit thereafter. The first time I noticed it I had -127 homeruns, then 4 homeruns later over a few games I was at -123. This affects more than just the HR stat. My contact and power ratings also dropped about 13% each, and it dropped me down on my awards list, all star votes and other things because the system not only thinks I don't have any HRs, it thinks I have negative HR's. Yet, my RBIs, Runs, BA, OBP and everything else stat-wise is unaffected. Has anyone else experienced erratic stat keeping? I am running a test by saving the current setup and then reloading the pre-127 HR save, and will play through on that season save until I get past 128 HRs and see if the same thing happens...if it does, then I suppose it is a legitimate problem, if it doesn't, then I suppose it is just a random glitch. I will let you know the results in a few days.
