Check the OP, added the threads to some known bugs/issues and the latest changes from Bort.

Do not use this thread to complain about any changes. Also if you know of a bug that is not posted, as in the bug was declared a bug by a Mod and the thread was moved out of the general bug forum, then post a link to it.

d. Organizing Custom Plays
- By this point, many people have a ton of Custom plays that appear in both the DPC main menu and the DAI in some unorganized fashion. Have no fear Pabst is here:
http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/47161
- Step one, delete the existing tabs
- Step two, create new tabs
- Step three, go into each play and at the bottom of the screen will be some options that will allow you to add the play to a tab.
- This script will also allow you to see how many occurrences a custom play appears in your DAI.

and

- If you wish to make a copy of a Custom Play, Deathblade made a Save As script that allows you to rename a play without having to recreate the play:

Looks like these will be fixed, but I will leave them on the issues list until confirmation that they are fixed comes from the live server.

For those of you concerned about Zone issues, here is what is on the horizon:

Well, I've done some investigating and here's what the dealio is so far:

There is no code that says "stay in this box" when in zone. The box just defines the receivers the defender will look at to defend, and where to head back to if releasing a receiver.

When the ball is thrown, the defender must make a vision check to figure out who it's going to. When he passes it, he essentially changes from zone coverage to man coverage on that receiver, which allows him to make a play on the ball.

What I believe was happening: The vision check was coming up every tick, even when he previously passed the check. So, if the defender passes his check on one tick and then fails on the next, he'll bobble back and forth from zone to man coverage, making him do funny things like looking like he's butting up against a "wall" if the receiver's outside his zone.

What I'm testing right now is making the vision check permanent. I.E. once he passes it, he stays locked on in man on the receiver, and can then go where ever he wants. I want to run some more test games with zone coverage to make sure there aren't any other ill effects from it, but I haven't seen anything funky yet.

(BTW, I've got an update on the flats zone too; seems to work at the moment, to have the zones be more of a "don't leave this area until the ball is thrown" zone instead of chasing if there's nobody else nearby)

This the most useful post about the game in a VERY VERY long time. The fact that this is just a sticky in the FAQs forum section and not included in the FAQ list at the top of the website is quite sad. You saved me having to ask a question about moving DPC plays from one team to the other because of this thread after search high and low for the answer in other sections and, for some reason, skipping right over this while looking in the FAQs/Newbie forum. That alone should be enough reason for this to be linked at the top of the website under the FAQs section.

thank you very much! one thing; you made mention here
" d. Zone's effectiveness
- Zones do work, if you have enough vision to read the plays and agility to cut back (see Blankspace's guide for Zone D's)
- You can move a player, anywhere the DPC allows you to and it will appear there during the sim"

of Blankspace's guide, ive searched around and cant find it do you have a link?
