Offline CFM Simulates Past Draft Every Time

★★★★ Newbie
At first I thought maybe it was b/c I was importing an NCAA Draft Class, but it does it every time even without an imported class. I've seen others complain about it on the www but have found no answers!!!
 
I love franchise mode as a coach, but it's pretty tough to build a team when you have to trade all your picks. The draft's my favorite part.
 
What's specifically happening - I'm in the offseason right before the draft - I scout my players and then advance to the next stage - it opens on the draft for like 1 or 2 seconds and then starts simulating the draft. I can't stop it, it fianlly stops simming at the Rookie Signings page.

Have you found any answers for this problem? My franchise mode automatically simulates but stops there. It won't even get to the rookie signings and I tried leaving it on for two hours! I am finally getting my team to where I want it to be and this is so frustrating. Any help will be appreciated.

Madden 25 draft simulation problem

★★★★ Newbie

 

When I finished the season in Connected Franchise mode and free agency ends, the college draft is automatically simulated. I do not have the option to go through the draft as normal. I am playing in Owner and Coach mode. This is very frustrating to me. I just bought this game and am very disappointed this is happening.

Please help.

I figured this out. If you have several Connected Franchise teams or just one, you have to TOGGLE the AUTO-PILOT to 'NO" so you are in control not the CPU.

 When I finish free agency, my draft automatically simulates which is not allowing me to enter the draft at all. Can someone please help me????

Thank you very much. That was the problem for me. I had a second user owned team on auto.

Damn. I just ran into this problem since I started running four teams. 

However, I tried your solution to no avail. It still will not let me go to the draft, even with every owner having Auto Pilot set to "No."

Actually, scratch my previous post as I can't edit it.

The solution worked. At first it didn't, guess it took a minute for it to "activate" but now it's all good! Thank you! :D
