    clamel got a reaction from tyronethecalzone in DDS Pro Football 21: Lets make the historical rosters that are missing   
    I'm on a mission updating that Historical file. For the moment I set my sight on getting a decent bigger player pool at the start of 2002 season. I picked that season since that's when the aligment are as we know it today. 
    I will release shortly that file then I get on adding 2018,2019 and maybe 2020 new players.
    My aim is that it should be playable to start in 2002 and move forward with correct new draftees.
    My biggest problem is that the game when starting are messing huge with OVR numbers that are setup in the old file, and even on my new players. 
    I hoped to fill all teams with 65-70 players and then have some 100 in the FA pool when one start and that looks good, with the bad thing the AI in-game setting up the start thinks some of those FA should be very good players, that's between 80-90.
    Hang in and it will pop up on Wolverine website.

    OK, I better chip in. 
    Try to keep it short even if the story actually goes back to 70s.  Coming from Sweden where really boardgames mostly are like Monopoly and Risk. I didn't get to know sportgames until I was in USA as a Collegestudent in the 70s. Then Strat-o-Matic and later APBA become addictive. Before that time I knew nothing about American Football or Baseball. I played the "real" football until my senior years in college, but even that game can end a career with wrong injuries. The first computer sportgames on C64 was not the way to go with sports. Then getting some early sportgames like Tony LaRussa and some forgotten NFL games on those first PCs helped a bit. But I kept on playing with cardgames on those American sports over the years until Championship Manager finally popped up on the REAL sport.  EA Sport games I always found too much arcade style in those days, still think it. Like EAs NHL,Madden and FIFA versions. You step into the shoes of the player in those games having the ball and try to emulate his moves. Crazy. I'm not Messi, never been, so I prefer Messi to handle his playing himself. I love to manage him.  
    So manager games with as close to reality is my game.  OOTP and Football Manager have dominated the years but always looked for some decent games on NFL, NBA and the college versions of them. I had a look at DDS games some years back but they looked too thin. Still they have a long way to go, especially the football version ( a bit to reach FOFs deeper level I think). Latest iteration have focused a lot on how the menues are looking and the interface. The heart of the games needs to come along. OOTP went the other way I think. First the inside then a better and better interface then from pure text to 2D and some sort of 3D. I found this site when I decided to dig in on the DDS games last year.  
    Nice to see the searchlight is also on several other interresting games here on GM-Games. That CT looks good and since I always followed The Kentucky Derby I just had to try out Starters Orders. Kind of nice game. Good to run a stable and just hope you get a new Secretariat. But of course I have to mod the racing schedule. Modding games are important in my plays 
    Actually anything in managerstyle hits my heart, but beside the college versions I always tend to like playing historical saves and have strong feelings that the part must be present in a game. OOTP in that case is the King no doubt, but hoping to get DDS games on a nice track to get up to par.
    Trying hard to update and fix the historical-file in the DDS pro football version, but running in to several doubts and problems to get it right were I like it.
     Well I said it was difficult to keep it short. LOL

    I guess I'm not alone, but beside some cool DL one might pick up one or two things. So the reason getting here could be useful down the line in more than one aspect.

    This beats having to look at weird photos of players that one know. And collecting them all by your self is a monster job. 
    so  THANKS
