IMPORTANT, Action Needed ASAP

Post by chrebet1024

Official Statement by EA regarding Desync's:

It turns out this is a bug when two users in a CFM are using different graphical settings (ie kicking arch, tackle cone, etc) and play an online H2H game. The good news is, the team is working on the fix ASAP.

They can't fix on the server side, so would have to be included in a patch and leagues would have to restart.


So, this is a simple fix.  We are implementing UNIVERSAL settings for everybody to make sure they have, so all of our graphical settings are the same.  Please do this ASAP, and if you experience any issues let us know right away. Thanks.

This is only mandatory for MEFL CFM settings.  This does not conflict with your regular settings for ranked online play.  So I see no issues here.  The ONLY little thing some guys would want is to have Zoom instead of Standard.....but honestly Zoom sucks and I cannot wrap my head around why guys would actually use it.

Mandatory Graphical Settings:
Player Names: Pre-Snap
Camera Settings: Standard
Defensive Graphics: None
Kick Aiming Arc: On
Previous Play Info: On
Toggle Camera: Off
Tutorial Popups: Off

..and if I'm not mistaken you CAN get to ZOOM by Toggling the camera to it.  So in essence, nobody loses any ability to use their favorite angle.

Use these mandatory settings....

Set it and forget it!!!!!

I think u made a mistake, u want to keep toggle OFF. If we have it on and someone changes to a diff camera y accident and goes to something diff then oppt, desync.

U want to have everyone keep it off. Does anyone actually use zoom anyways? Or should I say do more people want to use D strat pad or zoom camera? With toggle on u lose D pad for changes which most use.

My understanding was as long as it's set the same in settings....then we're ok.  Didn't realize that toggling during game causes desync as well.

Lets try this and allow guys to Toggle (bc that seems to be what guys like to do).....if it still causes issues, we'll turn Toggle OFF and/or discuss other possibilities.

Unless we know FOR SURE toggling in-game acts it up.

Those are the settings I'm sure most ended up on so I see no issues either. Good job on making this happen and keeping our season going.

Well if Desyncs keep happening we will have little choice. We'll see what happens.  Regardless, until Patch comes out, there's very little to discuss.

...If a DESYNC happens...please post it to this thread so we can learn more about this.

I'm talking to Fins and Bills and they Desynced twice.  

After talking to Fins, he only thought Camera and Toggle Camera were ONLY 2 that needed to be set Universally.  NO...there are more that we're asking to be universally set.  The one's listed above.

We need to KNOW FOR SURE if this is a fix or not.  If so, it's very easy to set it once...and ignore it for the next 12 months.

...remember to put toggle OFF, not ON like originally said.

Player Lock is still available for those who likes that feature.

....as long as it does really work...then we are good to go.

SET IT...and FORGET IT!!!!!

As long as guys can still do the "Lock Player" feature (which you still can with the L3 button)...then I don't see anything that we are MISSING OUT on here.

when i played the cards he had to go to his home screen away from Connected franchise and change his defensive and offensive camera to standard in addition to changing his connected career settings. The help/settings screen where u have the option to create custom playbooks and stuff.

...double check to make sure ALL of the settings within CFM were correct...not just the two most common in question.

UPDATE

Keep using these settings WITHIN your CFM settings.  But, I just found out that it might be only two specific settings that are causing the issue.  Please have all of these set so we don't waste each other's time. Thanks.

1. Defensive Graphics: OFF
2. Kick Aiming Arc: ON

Mandatory Graphical Settings:
Player Names: Pre-Snap
Camera Settings: Standard
Defensive Graphics: None
Kick Aiming Arc: On
Previous Play Info: On
Toggle Camera: Off
Tutorial Popups: Off

Yd and I had four or five desyncs. All settings on my end are correct, and Yd should be too. He said he followed the instructions in the link. Gonna try again tomorrow.

Guys I'm gonna say this again....if you are receiving Desyncs...and/or experiencing crap connections (not a normal lag)...then your settings are NOT setup correctly.

I'm gonna keep posting these until everybody gets it right:

Set these up in TWO DIFFERENT SPOTS:
1. Within your CFM MEFL Settings
2. On your Main Menu Settings

Mandatory Graphical Settings:
Player Names: Pre-Snap
Camera Settings: Standard
Defensive Graphics: None
Kick Aiming Arc: On
Previous Play Info: On
Toggle Camera: Off
Tutorial Popups: Off
