Known Bugs


Road to the Heisman Mode crashes or freeze

The ISO Game Mod is not fully compatible with Road to the Heisman mode. If you want to play this mode, we recommend playing it with the original game file. You can still use the texture mods with this game!

EMPTY STRING ERROR / All BYE Games - Simming Games Bug

There is one known bug, which seems to be a memory related issue, and for majority of users, this will never be a problem. If you simulate a series of games in DYNASTY MODE, PLEASE exit the schedule page, and to the main Dynasty menu, before you simulate more games! If you do not, it may cause an error ("EMPTY STRING") and all the schedules will go to "BYE". The entire emulator will need to be rebooted and all progress lost.

You can still simulate an entire season at once, if you press Sim Season, or Sim to a specific week. You just cannot do two unique sims in a row without first backing out of the schedule screen and re-entering it.

This seems to be possibly due to overload of memory/resources, but we are still troubleshooting the root cause. In the mean time, just read the news and standings every time you simulate, and you should be fine.

Luckily, you can reload your save and it will recover fine.

Make memory card saves and save states often. :)

No players show up after Recruiting in the Position Change Screen

This occasionally happens in V12 and V13. Make a new dynasty save after recruiting, and then reload the save. The players should reappear. **THIS SHOULD BE RESOLVED IN V13.5**

New Teams or renamed teams referred to as "AIR FORCE" by play-by-play commentary

This is an issue with how the game detects names. If the name doesn't match exactly how it's spelled, the team name defaults to Air Force. We are working to see if there's a fix for this.

Some teams have empty rosters


You can reset to the default modded rosters here in the Settings Menu, under System Settings.

Do not use this with other NEXT patches. This already includes all of them plus more!

I get no transfers!

This happens if you skip past the 1st stage of the offseason, Budgets. If you go straight to Step 2 Players Leaving, the game will show no transfers in the Players Leaving screen. 

In reality, there were probably a lot of transfer that occurred, but with the mod, we removed the 1 year waiting period for transfers and made the players immediately eligible. Since you skipped past the stage where the transfers happen, the game already thinks they are on their new team now.

So, if you want to see the transfers, DO NOT SKIP Step 1. It literally is clicking on Step 1, and press start, if you want to blow by it.

Team Ranking Display in Ticker and Menus 

In V13, we modified the Scorebug to show Top 25 ranked teams. This change also makes the Top 25 number show in various menu screens where team abbreviations are displayed as well. For non-ranked teams, this creates an empty space before their name. It should not affect anything besides the visual oddity.
