  1. As a follow up here is what I heard back from Bruce. It turns out I already do save pre-draft versions every year, so I opened that and everything was fine. I cannot say whether the text editor solution works, but I trust Bruce that it would. ................ Open your league file with a text editor like notepad, and remove all the lines with player names on them. Save it, then open it in the DD. One trick is to save your league before your draft starts, then save it with another name after your draft. Usually I append _Done to the name. That way you will have a clean file for next year. Thanks, Bruce
  2. Is this a change in Classic or new version? It would be great in the Classic if you could right click on a name in the Draft Summary and change the team owner. You can edit the auction amount, but not the team. In both Classic and new I need (want) the ability to edit the amount or team for an auctioned player. We typically pause at end of each round and every year I mess up at least once and if not caught quickly, it can take me a while to get everything caught back up. Nice if I could just pick the player and change the amount or owner, without redoing everything. In the new version is this how Unpick works?
  3. Hmm. Interest piqued. Will definitely check it out. I presume it does not work offline, in case we lose wifi at draft. Wish I knew before spending the $5 but don't mind putting a little extra money in FBG pockets for years of help.
  4. I installed Classic DD version 18c and opened my DD file from last year and saved as a new version. Then I attempt to Clear Teams. It starts to do it and clears some people, but then stops. I am unable to clear the rest of my teams. There are still 92 players on teams out of the original 180. Could this be related to a team having a player that is no longer in the league and therefore not in the new player database? If so, how can I find the player that is causing this issue?
  5. I like how the mobile app is smarter, but at the draft I still want my laptop with larger screen and the ease of navigation with my mouse. I have been DD user for over 10 years, and will continue to use the desktop version only because of the interface. I wholeheartedly agree that it's upkeep should not be abandoned.
  6. I just finished using DD for my auction and have a couple things that really need improvement in DD. I am not sure if development still occurs with the desktop DD, but I would request the following changes for next year. I would also repeat the great suggestions made 5 years ago (https://forums.footballguys.com/forum/index.php?/topic/550400-auction-dominator/) when suggesting a separate DD for auctions. In today's draft it was difficult to see a draft summary by position. It was also difficult to see how overall spending was going. Here are some questions I had during my typical auction draft. How has the bidding on WR been going? Show WRs in pick order with amount paid. Who has been highest or lowest WRs paid? Show same WR list, sorted by amount paid instead of pick order. Where has money been spent so far? Show the overall Draft Summary list, sorted by amount paid (descending of course).
  7. I recently saw mention of an H-value by Maurile Tremblay, based on conversation from Dan Hindery, and I am wondering if it has any value when analyzing regular auctions rather than DFS. It seems you would take the Points / Auction value and then multiply it by (Points * 1.73) to get the H-value. How would I use this H-value if trying to determine an optimal lineup for my auction? Could this be used to generate a better auction value per player? On a side note, it would seem the auction value generated by DD would have a consistent value when VBD / Auction value, since the value is the point rate * the VBD. However, I can see the #6 and #7 QBs with the same VBD having a difference of $1.28. The auctions.csv file has 1 for every position/rank, weekly weights are all 1 and no use of strength of schedule. I thought the auction value was consistently applied, so I did not understand if the H-value would be of any use, but it seems the auction values in DD are different, so the H-value may be able to tell me better "values".
