    Chris reacted to Jaystar2022 in How I started.. Playing Sports Sims   
    I started playing GM games in the mid to late eighties. I got my first computer at nine which was a Spectrum +3. With it came a floppy disk with a game called Soccer Boss.

    You took charge of a club in either Division 2, 3 or 4 and had to win promotion to Division 1 (Now the premier league). Me and best best friend spent hours on this game unable to win promotion to the top division, no matter what we did we always seemed to start the season really well and then loss a lot of game at the end to miss out on promotion. Then by some grace of god I managed to finish 3rd in the league and was promoted. The next two seasons we won Division 1 as easy as pie and won two FA Cups...Great times and it started me down the road of manager games.

    Chris reacted to CyrusPalmer in Mac running Windows games   
    Hey there! I feel you – playing games across different platforms can be a bit tricky sometimes. It's awesome that you found a way to run Windows games on your Mac. I did something similar a while back, and it's been a game-changer (literally!). By the way, have you considered getting a cheap Windows key? It's a great way to make sure you're all set up properly without breaking the bank.

    Chris reacted to AEN007 in All-American College Football '95   
    Greetings (again), Earthlings 🗺

    I recently acquired All-American CollegeFootball '95 (old DOS game)
    ~ which came with numerous/various years for each/every Team ... (≈90 teams)

    A half a dozen AACF95 teams came with generic names/colors etc
    The stats seem to be correct stats for the teams "they are supposed to be" ...
    So, I now just wanna figure out how to edit/change the team colors/logos ...
    I am (now/atm) in need of some "Tech-Help" ...

    What I "need"/want is someone to help me with some "Hex-Editing" ... (of the "compiled" files) ...
    I have (so far) "figured out" (implementing a Search&Replace with NotePad++)
    how to "hex edit" some team details, however, not (yet?) Team colors/logos ...
    ANY "techie" Hex-Edit "geeks" "out there" !?
    I would be willing to "negotiate$" how to "make it worth your while" ~
    just help me "figure out" how to go about editing/changing the (compiled) Team Colors/Logos; then I'll "do IT" ...
    Seems to me that the Team Stats/Data (90 teams @ ≈5 years for each Team) could/would be valuable ...
    for use with NCAA sims !
    HELP, please !!!

    Chris got a reaction from KansasCityShawn in Draft Day Sports: College Basketball 23 Questions   
    If the player is terrible, I don't bother. I use it if there is a log jam at a position and I know it's going to anger the current starter. Give them one more season as to not cause conflict.

    The end of December 2022 is when I took a chance on the genre for the first time. Frustrated with the state of the video game industry, I was looking for something new to play during the Steam winter sale. I noticed OOTP 23 was $10 and bought it. 160 hours later I didn't regret my decision. I started looking for other games in the genre. I wanted to try games in every sport I could find. My new obsession right now is DDS:CB 2023 which I've already put 175 hours into.

    Other games I own and plan on playing in the future
    OOTP 24 - Looking forward to the updated features
    DDS: PB 2023 - Want to build a combined universe between CB & PB
    Eastside Hockey Manager - picked up for $2. Even though it's older wanted to see what it offered.
    Motorsport Manager - Got it on sale and interested in the idea of running a race team.
    Football Manager 2023 - Not a fan of the sport but still wanted to see what it offered.
    FHM9 - Liked OOTP, figured I would give it a shot.

    How are you? I love this website and discord. I lately have become a GM nut. I been playing Head Coach 09 and F1 Manager 22, with a little of oopt 17. I love the management games where I can see what I built in action on the field or the racetrack! Hope to get to know you all!

    I am a huge basketball fan and also java developer. So I decided to create my own basketball management game. Something FM like. Of course much more limitated :).
    Game is not finished yet but is playable.
    If anyone would like to test it visit page.
    Game is simple so the only requirement is java 11 or above.
