After downloading the Draft Master here are the bugs I have already experienced. It says in the corner that I have 4 updates available, so I go and download the updates but the alert never goes away because the updates don't download. I go to New League to add a league, I put in the League name and press finish and nothing happens. I do it a few more times and nothing happens. SO basically I cannot do anything.

This is the only issue I'm getting.  

When I start the mock draft it picks obscure guys IE: Nick Weglarz

What OS?
What version of Java are you running?

Try installing Java 7.

Thanks

This may not be the proper place to ask this but; Will DM have the option to change the "Best Value" to H2H points rather than only roto?

Thanks

I can't even get the product to register. I keep getting the I've entered invalid credentials. I am running windows 8. I am positive that I have entered the correct email and password. Customer support also confirmed my info. Any ideas?

I had to delete the program from 2012 and download the 2013 version. Worked fine for me after that. Even updated mine this morning with no problems.

Are you behind a proxy?  Firewall?  If so disable or configure an exception.

I disabled firewall and still says something.

I figured out the issue.  

When configuring the way you want the AI to draft for the other owners you get an option of "Draft from cheat Sheet".  But the Cheat Sheet is reversed for some reason

I changed it to "Draft remaining players using roto projections"

All is good in the world.

I finally got mine to work as well. Just one question and hopefully one of the readers can answer this. When doing a mock draft it seems to make RP go quite early and often. In the league I am doing the mock for that is not the case. Any ideas on how to change that so my mocks can be more accurate?

I want a refund. Apparently, it's not compatible with Windows 8?

I'm getting the same issue.  Kimbrel is flying off the board lol

I'm being told by a friend of mine that the Football DM had sliders so you can change how each position is valued.  

Kimbrel gets chosen #2 after taking off all 50 keepers.

Thats my exact issue. In the first round after keepers Kimbrel, Motte, Rodney and even Papelbon went. I know these guys have good value but thats not remotely where they will go in my leagues draft. Hopefully there is an easy fix for this.

I've tried several things to no avail.  I've removed RP altogether and Kimbrel still gets drafted #2.  I'm also put Saves to 0 points and Kimbrel still gets drafted #2.

Also, if the software was using our point settings it should understand that SP is very valuable in our league but in the mock draft ZERO SPs go in the 1st 3 rounds.  Last season 25 SPs and 25 hitters were kept (same will happen this season) and the 1st 12 picks of last years draft were SPs.  I know this probably won't happen again but it should at least give me a few SPs being chosen in the 1st 3 rounds.
