New to FoF

so I just bought FOF 8 and I'm wondering how I'm supposed to get the real NFL as a game to play since i see the default is just a random fictional league

The rosters and cities are real, the nicknames aren’t. If you change the nicknames before entering a game, all future games will be with the correct team nicknames.

You can change it under options.

So if I were to go into a game, Sam Darnold would be on the Jets equivalent but not named the NY Jets? How do I change team nicknames

Controls -> Options -> Edit Franchise Nicknames



If you do it before entering a save, they will automaticly be correct in all future saves.

Thereís only past seasons in FOF7. Theyíve never been updated for FOF8. With the new patch itís possible to start in 2016 and forward. However this option does not include the past 3 draft classes if Iím not mistaken.

Not all are dead (assuming you are talking about the FOFC links).

Here’s how to get the FOF7 links that are still live:

just paste showthread.php as below from the dead link, and you’ll get your page

E.g. for the Draft Analyzer thread

https://forums.operationsports.com/fofc/?t=88538

Becomes

No they have never been converted to FOF8.

I guess most people play with fictional players. The ones who wants to play with historical rosters, haven’t been interested in spending the time needed to convert them.

Ugh. So can you still even buy FOF7? Why doesnt the devs just make the files, kind of like OOTP does for baseball?

What would you say the current priorities are of the FOF community?

But they should work as a basic data set for the OOTP team to use as a foundation for historical game play for the new game.

I just do fictional or start with whatever comes with the game. After a few seasons it's kind of moot because of the influx of generated players anyway. I have several saved games where I have played 100+ seasons. With that amount of data, to me, starting with real players or not doesn't really matter.

I think you can still buy FOF7 on Steam, and for me (I know I'll get slaughtered for this) it's the more enjoyable game
