- A fake PAT that results in a run or pass into the endzone, will now only result in a single point on US field sizes. Canadian and indoor field sizes still record this as a faked single PAT that results in two points.
I'm not sure I understand what this is saying. You line up for an extra point kick, but the holder picks up the ball instead and runs it into the end zone. That should be 2 points, should it not? Or is this one of those things which is different in college vs. pro rules? (US)
That is my fault guys.
I was testing some plays, and I was trying to play a rematch of Superbowl IX for fun (Steelers vs Vikings). I thought that two point conversions had been turned off for the game, and when I was testing a fake field goal play during an extra point, two points were scored. Under the old rules (pre 1996), that should have been only one point.
I made a comment about it in the private forum, but I wasn't clear about the situation.
David questioned this and had expressed that he thought the rule was the same under American rules as in the CFL. He has also asked for a clarification on the rule.
I have since tested this on an older build (1.3.140), and it was working correctly to begin with. I had jumped in and out of games and the PDS and games so many times that I was not keeping track of which rules I had set. Since I was using the Quick Game feature, the conversions had reset back to two points when I left the game and came back, because that was how the default league had been set up.
I posted the release notes above verbatim as they came listed with each release, and a change had been made at that time in response to my comment on the private forum; that is why it is shown as a change above. This has already been reset in the current beta build, and will be reset with the next public patch.
