    I'm totally confused about what we need to do to import. Can someone distill all the steps in one steps in one place? It's become very confusing trying to follow what's going on in this thread.

    I think I'm mostly there, but not quite. I've done this:

    Go to the Controls-Participants Menu.
    Run the Enter New Career function. Make sure to enter the league name exactly as it appears in the file names (FOFLFOOT). Remind participants which team they need to select (this will be based on the default team names, not the names as they appear in your league). This function is only available when you first open Front Office Football.
    Run the Import Game Files function. This will open the game. You will need your team password.

    It says my team is the Sacramento Guardians, though, not Davis Toads. What do I have to do from here? The last two steps above are prefaced with "Alternatively." Do I have to do both or just one?

    OK, I'm in. However, somehow my team name got screwed up in the transition - it's listed as "Davis Davis" instead of "Davis Toads."

    I'll have to double check that - it's entirely possible I entered "Davis" instead of "Toads" on the nickname screen.

    ("Davis Davis" might be a hit in the Fritz household though...)

    1 Davis only, please.

    I am in - performed the install new so my team names and such are still hosed, but I have players and stats for past seasons. JG is not threatening to turn the UI world on its side once again.

    I get to import game files above and I get an error - unable to load record book file. saved game is missing. if you are joining MP game mid-year make sure your commish sends you the league .frc file.

    ???

    can't get beyond that

    I'm pretty sure you can copy the .frc file from your FOF7 folder (C:\Users\(your user)\AppData\Roaming\Solecismic Software\Front Office Football Seven\Leagues\FOFLFOOT)

    copy the .frc file and paste to (C:\Users\(your user)\AppData\Local\Solecismic Software\Front Office Football Eight\Leagues\FOFLFOOT)

    There is a chance I am wrong on that, so be aware....lol

    Did you do "Restore Career", and then "Import Configuration"? That should resolve the team name issue.
