A new hotfix update for Franchise Hockey Manager 4, version 4.7.85, has just been released.
There were a few new potentially serious issues discovered after the release of the 4.7.80 update, so we decided to do one final hotfix to clear those up. We'd hoped to get it out a bit sooner, but isolating one crash in particular took a little longer than expected, and there were some complications with a lineup AI fix that took some time to resolve. This, barring any discoveries of game-breaking issues, will likely be the final FHM4 update. We'll still be monitoring our forums and Facebook (FranchiseHockeyManager), Twitter (@FranchiseHockey), Reddit (/r/FranchiseHockey), etc. on a daily basis, answering questions and offering help as needed, so if you have any problems or suggestions, please let us know. Thanks for your continued support.
Your existing savegames will be compatible with the updated game, but some of the update's fixes may not retroactively correct certain problems in existing saves.
