    It's pretty tough to get the hang of things when you get started, especially the training, recruting etc. A tutorial would be very helpful.

    Version 2021


    Hi everyone, my name is Chris and I co-ordinate General Manager Games (the sports manager database). It's been a pleasure working with Slybelle to get the mods that bring that NBA immersion. I spent more time than I can count going through and performing visual design tasks for recent photography on coaches, draft picks, courts, and of course all decent NBA players. We ask that you have a username at the GM Games forums and have two 2 posts to unlock unlimited downloads. The installer is also an exe file and you'll know it's safe. This is all we ask for the number of hours put in, no asks for donations or money, just 2 minutes of your time and for free. Where to get Draft Day Sports Pro Basketball 2021?

    Greetings! My name is SecretAgentMan, and every time the Summer Games or Winter Games comes around, I run a sim tied to that. Given that the 2020 Summer Games in Japan start next week....well, that means it's time! This year, I am jointly running it between both SimNation and GMGames. (In the past, I've just been at SimNation) We will be using Going for Gold, a game that I am developing, as the method for simming this event. The game is still in what I would call an alpha state, though unlike in the past, I do have a functional career mode. There's also a Winter Games mode, which will be relevant in about 6 months, but for right now, we'll be using Summer Games mode. The way Summer Games mode works is that you pick one of 65 countries, each of which have different strengths/weaknesses based as best we can on real-life historical results. A world will be populated with athletes to represent each of those countries (so, not the real athletes of the 2020 Summer Games). As the head of that country's national athletics committee, you get 200 training points that you can spread amongst your athletes (with a max of 10 per athlete per event) to give them a boost and help push them towards the medal stand. Then, as the 2020 Summer Games occur in real life, we will sim along-side them. Deadline to join is Friday, July 23rd, the date of the Opening Ceremonies of the 2020 Summer Games. The alpha version of the program will start being sent out by e-mail early next week, and the sim will begin on Saturday, July 24th How do you join? Please provide the following information: Your forum handle OR a name you'd like to be called: Your e-mail address: 1st Choice of Country (see below): 2nd Choice of Country (see below): IF you have a particular connection to a country (such as being a citizen, having ancestors from that country, etc.), please also state that in your application. I will be assigning by first choice when possible, but accounting for personal connections when there is a conflict between multiple people wanting the same country. (Which may not always be obvious, since there are people from 2 different forums participating) Please allow 48 hours for your application to be processed and decisions to be made about which country you'll be given The 65 available countries are as follows: Argentina Australia Austria Azerbaijan Belarus Belgium Brazil Bulgaria Canada Chile China Croatia Cuba Czech_Republic Denmark Estonia Ethiopia Finland France Georgia Germany Great_Britain Greece Hungary Iceland Israel India Indonesia Ireland Iran Israel Italy Jamaica Japan Kazakhstan Kenya Latvia Liechtenstein Lithuania Luxembourg Malaysia Mexico Nepal Netherlands New_Zealand Nigeria North_Korea Norway Pakistan Poland Romania Russia Serbia Slovakia Slovenia South_Africa South_Korea Spain Sweden Switzerland Thailand Turkey Ukraine Uruguay USA Zimbabwe How do you tell who will be good?

    How I started.. Playing Sports Sims

    The original Football Manager from 1982, I started playing it on my Commodore 64 around 1990. Then Championship Manager the original on my Amiga around 1992, played a few versions until they rebadged it Football Manager (different to the Commodore one) on PC. Since then I've played EHM and FHM as a big hockey fan, OOTP Baseball which introduced me to the joys of baseball, Starters Orders and now DDSPB 21 I'm trying my hand at. There have been some Aussie Rules attempts but I'd love to see a really good AFL one someday.

    Absolutely love this dynasty and after reading this I think I might need to put the breaks on trying to fix my Washington Wizards and instead see if I can bring my (complete lack of) talents to Charlotte and turn the team that was once referred to as "Pro Basketball's Crying Jordan" into an actual respectable organization.

    Okay, how about a June update? The bad is that I have nothing new to show, or discuss. The good is that I have a new job, so while I spent most of this month job hunting and have a few busy months ahead, I am set up with a much better long-term situation (which bodes well for future development, in my mind) I still plan to have some sort of Olympics multiplayer game on the forums, but at this point, I may just take my 2016 version and add in this year's events and schedule. We'll see what I can come up with- watch this space for some updates as we get closer to the games!

    OKC is better

    Not sure if they've signed Kemba as part of a future trade yet, but if he's staying I think OKC could look decent with a good draft this season

    How I started.. Playing Sports Sims

    I had to have spent legitimately like 400 hours on my first OOTP save, been hooked ever since. I like the creativity text sims allow you when it comes to editing and customizing teams. Console sports games don't have that luxury most of the time.

    I spent far too much time on Championship Manager 01/02 although I don't really like watching soccer at all...

    Depends on what other sports you follow (then again maybe not, great way to learn new sports). Games I play a lot of are Draft Day Sports College Basketball and Pro Basketball), Out of the Park Baseball and for pro football (American) I would suggest Draft Day Sports again. Draft Day Sports games can be found at WolverineStudios.com
