know issue:

- problem with edit mode transfers contracts
there is a known issue in the master league when started after making transfers in edit mode, this will cause these transfers to have a problem in their contracts and can bug the game in the transfer window.

there is a temporary workaround for this by reducing the starting year, see the tutorial
hopefully, a better solution will be found in future versions.

- some minor issues are not applied like alternating the league's rules, this is postponed to next season, as it will require starting a new master league, which is preferable to avoid.


Antivirus false positive:
all the files on the Smokepatch website are safe and free from viruses or malware, we use BAT scripts to install and run the game, antivirus programs mark all BAT-based files as dangerous, and we cannot afford to buy a digital certificate, as the price for that is insane, do not let the antivirus delete or block the installation, don't do this unless you trust the source.
