Draft App Crashes

#1 Post by CaptainTrunk » March 12th, 2014, 8:02 am

When I use the draft app, it very often crashes when I try to draft a player. I've attached a screen shot. Also notice that the "players to pick" and "salary left" are not accurate. I'm thinking that may be due to the crashing, and not a separate issue. But maybe that would point out where the problem is.

Anyway, this exact same error happens quite a bit. What happens is that it is somewhat rare at the start of the draft. Maybe once every 20 players. Then it get more frequent as the draft goes on, to the point where at the end it happens for practically every player. Which is the worst time since the picks are going more quickly.

I'm asking Pasko Varnica to look at this - he's the designer of the software.

Please, download the most recent version, the one dated March 11 (031114)

If you have an existing league that you want keep, follow the instruction to upgrade. Briefly, save My Baseball folder, download new version, replace My Baseball folder with the one you saved earlier.

I'll try that, but this has happened to me every year for the past 3 years.

I had 5+ crashes of this type in my draft yesterday. I didn't lose any state - it correctly put whoever I had just drafted onto the proper team when I reopened the application - but it was annoying.

Another bug: before the draft I set up keepers, and then when the auction started I discovered that I had accidentally set Ender Inciarte as a keeper for a team and undrafted him. Then every time it crashed, if that team still had an OF slot open, it would re-add him to the team, and when I undrafted him again it would add another copy of him to the draft pool, so as of the end of the draft I have four Ender Inciartes in my draft pool. It also appears to manually calculate players and money remaining, such that each time I undrafted Inciarte it would add 1 player remaining and $10 budget to that team, and now that team shows that it has 4 players left to buy and $40 in remaining budget even though they're full.

This was using the March 20 version.
