Visual Concepts Working On ESPN FixFollowing reports of problems with the online component of ESPN NFL 2K5, Visual Concepts announced today it is working to address the issues. According to a statement issued by the developer late Monday, a server update will be released on Friday "to address the login and roster problems some of you are experiencing." The problems affect both the PlayStation and Xbox versions of the game. However, the server update wont fix the challenge-reception problems Xbox Live users are experiencing with ESPN NFL 2K5. According to ESPN, "currently, users must reset their Xbox if they initiate or receive four or more challenges if they wish to send or receive game invites." Visual Concepts advises gamers "having difficulties getting another user to accept your challenge or if you are not receiving challenges once you’ve created a match, [to] power down your Xbox and restart." Visual Concepts said the problem will be fixed by August 6, and the studio apologizes "for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience." Reports of problems with ESPN NFL 2K5s online component began to surface late last week as the game began to arrive in peoples hands. However, attempts to replicate the problems by GameSpot staffers have been unsuccessful as of press time. As a temporary fix for the challenge problem if you are currently running your game in Dolby Digital 5.1 go into your Dashboard and turn of Dolby Digital. For some reason the sound coding interferes with the ping online. So people who get online with Dolby have like zero ping. So when you challenge people or get challenges it just sits there. I had this problem at first, then I found out about the Dolby problem, I turned Dolby off and now it works like a charm.
