Exclamation FHM6 Hotfix, Version 6.1.45, Now Available

A new hotfix update for Franchise Hockey Manager 6, version 6.1.45, has just been released.

This corrects a serious problem that could cause playoff series in a standard game not to update the series score properly, potentially preventing the series (and the playoffs) from ever finishing. We are working on other fixes as well for an update next week, but wanted to get this one out quickly because of the impact it could have on a game.

To apply the update:

-If you are playing the eSellerate version, just download the setup file and install it over your current installation. There is no need to uninstall or unlicense your current copy! However, you should quit the game before installing it, of course.
-If you are playing the Steam version, the game will auto-update if you have that option active. If you don't see the update in your Steam update queue, you may need to exit and restart your Steam client.

Download link for PC (FastSpring):
Main server: PC Installer Fastspring

Download link for Mac (FastSpring):
Main Server: Mac Installer eSellerate

Your existing savegames will be compatible with the updated game.

Is that the only bug fix? I was hoping the drag/drop issue would be fixed. Thank you for this update.

Yes, just the one fix. We have some others in progress, but we needed to get this one out quickly and there wasn't enough time to finish and properly test anything else.

Can you please look into players in free agency who are young enough that when you go to sign them it defaults to an entry level contract, but then the player asks for more than you're allowed to offer for an entry level deal making it impossible to sign them.

Krill Marchenko. This isn't the first time this has happened either, I had the same issue with players on FHM 5.

I too noticed this in FHM 5, and it happens with guys passed their draft age coming in from the KHL. You go to offer a contract and they want more than the ELC maximum (925k or whatever) so you can't get them signed.

They usually then turn around and get signed by another team at the 925k you couldn't offer

I'll add that to the bug list, as far as I know it should still work but apparently it isn't.

Edit: actually, can you send me a couple of the images you're trying to add? That'll make it a little easier to check.

We've fixed a few issues with the ELC requirements not being triggered properly for some players, but new ones seem to keep popping up. Sometimes it's a data issue with the player, sometimes it's a coding one. We'll check to see what's specifically going on with Marchenko.

Question Regarding Awards Customization

Hi Jeff,
do you see any chance that one or both of this customization possibilites can be implemented in FHM 6?

1. The "award_champion.png" is still not customizable per league. There is only one picture possible for all championships across all leagues (Screenshot 1).

2. The "Champion" icon in the "History" -> "Season" overview should be customizable per league. Would be an awesome possibility.

Just a question and if implementation is not possible in FHM 6 hopefulley it will be in a future version!

Thank you!

Retired Numbers Award Logo Missing

Hi Jeff,
what is the name of the logo missing here?
Is it customizable per league?
It would be cool if there is one to be displayed for retired numbers!
Thanks in advance!

Option "Import FotoFit (FaceGen) file"

Hi Jeff,

when I use the option "Import FotoFit (FaceGen) file" on any person/player FHM 6 does not respond anymore…
The initial creation of a FaceGen base on an existing fg-file in the correct folder works.
Sorry, if this was already reported!

No, I know what that is, it's the unintended result of a workaround I used to get Wright into the OHL for 19-20 despite being under the age limit. It'll be fixed in the next update. For now, to prevent it from happening, at the start of the 2020-21 season, you'll need to edit his contracts to his current junior team (it'll be set to "Toronto Midget".)
