Fictional Association with Historical Players BUT ...

I am trying to create a Fictional Association of two 8-team leagues that are regional in basis: Great Lakes and Mid-Atlantic.

I want NO fictional players, only historical ones. There are two main ways that I have tried to make this happen:

1) I create the leagues, dump the rosters and eliminate the free agents and then go to league structure and add historical teams whose players I want. I then click the fantasy draft function to clear rosters and hold an inaugural draft, eliminate the historical teams so only the fictional ones remain. I keep including 13-15 historical teams so that with the minors there will be no shortage of players (and I set the subsequent first year player drafts to be of historical players from all eras).

BUT what keeps happening is that the inaugural draft is filled with fictional players along with the historical ones.

I noticed that the default setting is for 162 rounds in the inaugural draft. If I check before the inaugural draft begins after doing all of the above and cut it say 30 rounds (I should have included plenty of players for the teams to draft that many without requiring fictional players to fill the rosters) ?

2) I directly start with historical teams to begin the league, then add more historical teams with the league structure edit function, then click the fantasy inaugural draft function and eliminate the teams and add new fictional ones in the league structure edit. Then hold the inaugural draft.

BUT again the draft has tons of fictional players in it that I don't want. Is that because of the high number of default draft rounds? Or is there some other way to just turn off the creation of fictional players in a fictional league?

The other option is to create a historical league. That means that the team names change back to the actual historical franchises which I don't want to happen but can live with if needed, but at least there are no fictional players.

But it seems that there should be a way to create a fictional league without any fictional players and only historical ones. Anyone?

You need to set the Database path. If you are using the default db copy & paste using ctl-c & ctrl-v the DB stat folder line into the game. Mine looks like this. i do not use it for my current league but you can see where it goes under League Settings - Options.

Hello darkness, my old friend
I've come to talk with you again
Because a vision softly creeping
Left its seeds while I was sleeping
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the sound of silence

Congrats Harold Baines

"Stay Strong"

Thank you The Game - I did not previously know either that I needed to do this nor how to.

Much appreciated.
