Franchise Mode: Beta v1.5.3 - Bug Fixes + Balancing tweaks

Hi again folks,

Here is the latest build of the Franchise Mode. This one mostly contains bug fixes as well as some balancing and difficulty tweaks.

Note to Mac users: I have been having some issues with the Mac build. It seems the issue is related to something on the Steamworks side of things. I will be trying some new things with it over the next few days, if you have time, please give it a try and report your experience in the discussion forum.

UPDATE: The Mac port has been confirmed as working! :) Thanks to everyone who helped me get that issue sorted!

Thanks for the continued feedback!
