A new hotfix update for Franchise Hockey Manager 5, version 5.8.74, has just been released.
Your existing savegames will be compatible with the updated game.
This hotfix corrects a couple of specific issues discovered with 5.8.72:
-the 5.8.72 fix for changes in contract offers removing the full value of each new offer from the team's free agent budget without first refunding the amount of the previous offer should now work properly in all leagues.
-multiplayer games will no longer register (potentially very many) additional extensions for a player's contract when he re-signs with the team. The fix works retroactively and will remove any traces of such extra extensions from your game (but the original extension will still remain there as it should.)
