Re: So... Here's my solution to the QB Sim Glitch...

not a bad idea..
I can't shave with my eyes closed. Meaning each day, I have to look at myself in the mirror and respect who I see.

I miss the old OS

There are two things you can't get back in this world; time and money. Spend both wisely

Edit: BTW, I agree that EA should include the option to set the sim quarter length. I don't understand why they don't.
I've been saying that for a while. They've had sim length in the bball games for years, so why not football?

If not that, then at least give me an in-game save for NCAA like they have on Madden. I like realistic stats for my dynasties, but as you said, you have to make the games 1-2 hours long to get realistic stats, and I don't always have that much time to complete a game in one sitting. This is where the in-game save would come in handy. Then I could just come back and finish the game later. As it is, I have to leave the PS2 on if I want to finish my game later, and I hate doing that.

Plus, as you said, it takes forever to complete a season, which is why I end up simming half the games just so I can move on to the next season. I'd love to be able to play every game and still finish a season in a decent amount of time, but as it is right now, that's not possible. I'm either sacrificing time or realism, and I prefer realism. Guess I'm just goofy like that...
Once upon a time, I had a lovely signature. Then it died. The end.

Re: So... Here's my solution to the QB Sim Glitch...

You know, thinking about this more, I think this year I'm just going to go with my plan B: play short five minute quarters and forget about stats and awards. I think I will enjoy it more that way. EA should really consider puting in adjustable sim quarter length for next year's version...

Besides, one glitch I already found in the game (and posted in the Glitch thread stickied on these boards) has to do with the awards... I simmed one season with the Hokies to get a feel for the dynasty mode, and my RB was first team all-american, got invited to the Heisman Presentation as a finalist, and yet got SECOND TEAM ALL-ACC!!!!!!
