Chris reacted to Truck_Turner in USFL 2K | FBPro98
It has been quite a while since I updated this thread, so let me bring you up to date:
- I am now using XEG Football to simulate the 2006 2KFL season which will be the 7th season I have simulated (2004 was finished in FBPro98; the 2005 season was actually simmed in Draft Day Sport 2021)
- Before the 2005 season, the 2KFL expanded to 18 teams (Memphis Showboats, Pittsburgh Maulers, Houston Gamblers, San Antonio Gunslingers, Oklahoma Outlaws and Jacksonville Bulls). The Pittsburgh Maulers were the lucky team to win the number one pick and selected QB Aaron Rodgers. Some other notable rookies chosen in the 2005 draft were QB Ryan Fitzpatrick going to the Houston Gamblers, QB Alex Smith going to the San Antonio Gunslingers and DE DeMarcus Ware going to the Boston Breakers and CB Pacman Jones going to the Washington Federals who seem to love stacking their secondary with front-line elite prospects in the draft.
- The Washington Federals ended up winning the 2004 2KFL Bowl defeating the Chicago Blitz. The 2004 League MVP was Tampa Bay QB Marc Bulger. The Defensive Player of the Year was Philadelphia Stars CB Damon Moore. The Offensive and Defensive Rookies of the Year were Birmingham Stallions WR Wes Welker and Washington Federals S Sean Taylor.
- The Los Angeles Express defeated Tom Brady (who also won 2005 League MVP award) and the Philadelphia Stars to win the 2005 2KFL Bowl. The Defensive Player of the Year was Michigan Panthers S Earl Little. The Offensive and Defensive Rookies of the Year were Oklahoma Outlaws HB Ronnie Brown and Washington Federals CB Chris Harris.
As an aside, I will be providing weekly update recapping each game with interesting things that happened during the game
The 2006 2KFL Draft took place a couple of weeks and the results are below:
ROUND 1 ARI WR Brandon Marshall DEN G Chris Chester OAK QB Jay Cutler TBY LB Chris Greenway BOS WR Marques Colston HOU LB D'Qwell Jackson BIR DE Mario Williams OKL LB DeMeco Ryans SAT LB A.J. Hawk MIC C Nick Mangold PIT LB Stephen Tulloch WAS LB Rocky McIntosh CHI LB Thomas Howard JAX DT Haloti Ngata NWJ WR Greg Jennings MEM WR Santonio Holmes PHI DE Tamba Hali LAX DE Rob Ninkovich ROUND 2 ARI LB James Anderson DEN WR Delanie Walker OAK WR Jason Avant TBY HB Maurice Jones-Drew BOS LB Ernie Sims HOU S Antoine Bethea BIR DT Kyle Williams OKL LB Omar Gaither SAT DE Elvis Dumervil MIC QB Vince Young PIT LB Clint Ingram WAS LB Tim Dobbins CHI CB Tim Jennings JAX DT Domata Peko NWJ G Zach Strief MEM QB Tarvaris Jackson PHI LB Keith Ellison LAX S Donte Whitner As you can see, this draft was extremely Linebacker heavy, which was needed because the league had a TON of Linebackers retire. The next few post will go by division with team info
Chris reacted to Hey_123 in Windowed Mode
Hi there, I remember playing an older version of CT Football Manager in windowed mode. I can't seem to find a way to get it into windowed mode in the newest version. Is this possible? If not, it would be great if the developers could add it back into the game.

regarding browser-based simulation games for boxing I have found those ones here:
- Online Boxing Manager (https://www.onlineboxingmanager.com)
- Web Boxing League (https://www.vivi.com/)
- eBoxingPromoter (http://www.eboxingpromoter.com/)
I am currently testing Online Boxing Manager and eBoxingPromoter... any experiences with those?
Can anyone recommend further games from the genre that are freely available online?

Chris reacted to FedFan91 in How I started.. Playing Sports Sims
I began with Out of the Park Baseball around version 4 or 5 I think. I don't remember how I found it but the idea of GMing always intrigued me. I have been playing it off and on since then. I have also been heavily in Franchise Hockey Manager since its beginning. It wasn't unit recently I heard about Draft Day Sports and their Pro and College Football games. Now I am learning those.
Chris reacted to Mauimudd in How I started.. Playing Sports Sims
I started with the Strat O Matic board game & eventually Tony La Russa Baseball followed by every edition of Front Page Sports Baseball & Football. I picked it up with the OOTP baseball series & have purchased every one, every year. Still a huge soft spot for the FPS games.
Chris reacted to drcraigphd in How I started.. Playing Sports Sims
My very first GM-style game was Micro League Baseball for the C64. Granted, you didn't really have GM functions, but this was the first realistic sports simulation I played. After that, it was Front Page Sports Football and Baseball, High Heat Baseball, and now OOTP and Football Manager. Sports GM games have ALWAYS been my favorite and more enduring interest among PC games.
Chris got a reaction from SojuWarrior in How I started.. Playing Sports Sims
Let me start..
I thought this would be an interesting thread to start here at GM Games. I am really curious to know about how you found out about playing these types of games. We've had several blog entries from our feature contributors telling us their story about how they got started playing sim sports.
I don't consider myself someone with a great memory lol but here is how I think it all got started and how it evolved. For a long time I have always been fascinated with the statistics in sports. Being a fan, playing sports my whole life, I was always interested in box scores. My grandparents would always have a daily paper and I would grab the sports section and be really interested in reading the box scores that tell a little bit of a story of how the game went. From then on I knew stats and sports, athlete performance had a lasting effect on me.
But it evolved further to wondering why teams won, why teams lost, and understand the aspects of a manager or franchise.
I think it all started on NES. I owned a copy of Baseball Simulator and my friends in the neighbourhood and I just played the crap out of Baseball Stars. I think my mom at one point had a 40 dollar late charge with Blockbuster on a copy of Baseball Stars being a few weeks late. Man did I ever love that game from the team building perspective, money, salary caps etc.
Later on Baseball Simulator was pretty fun, but I think I ended up playing Baseball Simulator 1.000 on SNES more, minus the dumbass magic part of that game lol.
Baseball was my sport growing up but I loved all sports and my background being Lithuanian, I have been bred to love Basketball. Along the journey at blockbuster I rented my first copy of Tecmo Super Bowl. I would play out full seasons with my friend during sleepovers and we would almost get a whole season done from early afternoon till about 3-4 am. Losing in the playoffs with eyes barely open was an empty feeling when it was all over, lol! But was simulating it ever fun as well. Stats were realistic, player personnel moves had significance etc. Loved this game.
I found some joy in basketball from copies of NCAA Basketball (which didn't simulate well but played well), and played a lot of Tecmo Super NBA Basketball. Tons of fun and loved my mid-range jumpers from the elbows (which normally was a low percentage shot) but loved seeing Michael Jordan hitting those while growing up.
From a hockey perspective my first simulation game was Wayne Gretzky Hockey, which I believe was way ahead of its time. As time progressed Baseball Mogul showed up on the scene. It instantly was a hit to me, it took what I wanted these games to become to the level where it made me feel wrapped up in this world. I helped run a league named BMIL that lasted for years until we switched to OOTP .. I have been a user on the OOTP forums since 2002 and I have an interesting private message with Markus from 2002 that makes me smile to this day.
As the modern games came out I pretty much played about everything. Countless hours of Championship Manager (CM) even though I wasn't a huge European Football / Soccer fan but the game was just THAT good. Eastside Hockey Manager was developing and the games got more sophisticated.
I still firmly believe this genre made some of the most addictive games ever made. If you really believe and are intrigued with a great simulator algorithm and AI world, these games will keep you playing through all hours of the night. "Just sim one more day"..
Hey, share with us your story. I would love to hear it personally. I helped create this site so these games, the developers get the attention they deserve, but also, we get a chance to mold the games with the dev's in our desired fantasy world's.
What's your story??
