-When you have to pay a scout or coach a wage higher than the board would normally approve, choose the "Approach To Sign" option. Change the person's default position from scout or coach to assistant manager. Change the offered wage to 0, then select the "Offer Contract" option. Wait until he rejects your offer. Select the "Approach To Sign" option again. That person's default position should still be assistant manager, with an increase in the wage limit that you can offer him. Choose the desired wage you wish to pay him, then offer that person a scout or coach position.
-To offer higher wages, choose any value apart from the highest. After that, use the mouse wheel to scroll down and make it as high as possible. The " + " button should still be available. Press it and the wages will go up a bit. This can also be used on signing on fee and release clauses, etc. (not bonuses).
