View Full Version : PBP mod?
01-08-2006, 08:15 PM
Is anyone interested in working out a way to improve the PBP text? Some of it is pretty badly written. I'd prefer it to resemble a real-life radio broadcast call. Maybe even with separate voices for PBP ("catches it over the middle") and analysis ("he got a step on his man").
Not to mention the descriptions that make no sense, like "Mosebar goes on a deep slant over the middle and steps out of bounds for a big gain. Tulsa gains 1 yard."
If the messages are stored in the .DAT files, we could do this.

the PbP text is not stored in a dbase thats accessible by users, sorry.

I just got the game today--and I love it. But the PBP could stand some work--in quantity as well as quality. I have written PBP for Action PC,
Diamond Mind, and some other games, and I would be glad to help, once I understand just how it is done in Bowl Bound.
I have a question about editing players names and attributes:
(a) Can it be done?
(c) can things like height, weight, college, hometown, speed, pass blocking, etc., be edited.
(d) can team colors be edited?
I just got the game today and I have a million questions. When I download and print the manual, I just may find that I have asked needless questions.
I would appreciate a reply to my E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org

a player editor is a feature for the 1.1 update. Until then you can't access the player attributes.
As to the PbP I answered right above your post that the PbP dialogue is not available to the user.
Arlie has mentioned a possible editor for PbP but I wouldn't expect to see it anytime soon.

Thanks for your quick reply. I understand about the PBP. I assume that this is totally different from the general editor which has been promised for Version 1.1. This, as I understand it, will allow editing of player's names within the teams, as well as attributes, stadium names, colors, etc. Any idea when the editor and 1.1 will be out.
I must say this is a delightful game. I have played every baseball and football simulation available (I think) since 1952, when I found APBA's board game as a small boy. I really find the recruiting challenging.
