Setting the Starting Defense with the RLM
When you first start scoring a game you must set your initial defense. After your initial defense has been set you should use the normal method of setting your defense -by pressing D. Sometimes you will know your defensive positions before the game starts and other times you will be scoring on the fly. There are 3 ways to set your defense with the RLM and each is described below. These 3 buttons, identified by color, will cover all the situations that arise. These buttons will set the known defensive players on every cell on the opposing teams scoresheet.
The Green button
This is the most common situation where you know the starting lineups and defensive positions of all the players before the game begins. After setting your lineup with the RLM and clicking Accept and exit, click the green button when the Set defense screen appears. All the cells on the opposing teams scoresheet will be set with the correct defense and this screen will not appear again. Use the D key to make any defensive changes for the rest of the game. Note that the Click to set defense button in the RLM will be disabled after clicking this button.
The Red button
Use the red button only when you have made a substitution before the entire starting lineup is set. When you click this button the starting defense will not be set and this screen will not be shown again. The reason the defense will not be set is because the substitution will overwrite the starters defensive settings. Use the normal method of setting your defense, by pressing D, for the rest of the game.
The Yellow button
The yellow button is used when you are scoring on the fly. You can click this button after each player is entered as long as you have not made a substitution. Defensive stats will only be correct for the players that have already been set on defense. Once all players are in the starting lineup then use the Green button above. Once a substitution has been made, click the Red button then use the normal method of setting your defense, by pressing D, for the rest of the game.
