"Hidden players" are players in other countries who can be discovered by scouting; I'm not sure if that will have any effect if we don't have scouting turned on. Possibly it could end up being a source of foreign players who enter the free agency pool.

This is not the same as "ghost players" which we definitely need enabled.

I've turned off hidden players so we don't get into any FA fights.

Are players supposed to be refusing to go to the minors? If not, how do we fix that?

edit: To be honest, I kind of like it -- it gives us at least *one* player-relations dynamic to deal with. But if it's not supposed to be on I figured I should report that it's happening.

None of my players refused, so I haven't noticed.

It shouldn't be on.

Guys, while I figure out the answer to Yuda's question, Andreas has issued a patch to fix the hanging at 22% bug.

http://www.ootpdevelopments.com/board/ootp-9-faq/174231-loading-certain-league-stuck-22-while-loading-teams.html

I don't know if you guys really need to install it, or if it only needs to me on my computer since the league file is minipulated here, but I figure it's best if we are all on the same page... er,  version.

I counted and the pause @ 22% for me was 7 seconds.

Maybe it's just because I'm on a Mac  ;D

Installed the patch, though I still get a 10 second or less pause at 22%. My guess is that this won't go away until the next updated league file is generated by Chappy with a patched version.

Okay, so I'm looking at the roster rules again...

Age Min - 0
Age Max - 0
Active Roster - 25
Foreign Limit - no limit
Expanded Roster Size - 40
Roster Expansion Date - Sept. 1st
Secondary (40-man) roster - Rule disabled
Min days service - 172
Disabled list legnth - 15 days

I don't see anything about refusing to go down...  Perhaps if I disable the 40-player roster size it will do away with it?  But then we won't have 40 players in September...  And of course, that might not fix it anyway...

Let me look at the ootp forums and see what I can dig up.

FWIW, disableling the 40 man rule does not turn off the right to refuse...

Okay, turning off minor league options will prevent this from happening, which, makes things interesting.

I say interesting, because that is under the financial rules, which are supposedly turned off...  I cannot even check the "Financial System" box to try to turn it off.

Looks like we may be putting off opening day until Friday. >:(

In the Jamaica League, where finances have never been turned on, the "right to refuse minors assignment" appears on the roster screens, with certain players designated with an asterisk, but it actually has no effect in the game. It's just a bug, that the on-screen indicator never turns off.
