I just found this submenu for the first time: What do you do with the player advantage and goalie advantage sliders? If you slide it one way or the other, it gives the skaters/goalie better attributes or what? So, if I slide the goalie advantage slider to the left (toward the CPU side) does it make the opposing goalie tougher to score against? I noticed that it ticks up to +/- 14 points to either side so how big of a difference is there for each "tick" that you move the slider? Sorry for the questions but I couldn't find anything on this on your forum.
how do you get the widescreen to work? I can't seem to get ride of the black pillarboxes that force it to a 4:3 aspect ratio.
I've tried the "disable desktop composition" that I read somewhere in the faq but it doesn't work, even in Windows 7 for me.
edit: Nevermind (I think). I looked through the install folder and found launcher.exe and saw that you can change resolutions and stuff from that. After going from the v. 1.04 .exe to the v. 1.01 .exe, it seems to be in widescreen now.
I just picked up the game again for the first time in over a year and decided to check out these new and improved stadium textures.
I have to say, well done! Wrigley Field looks extraordinary now! I'm very impressed.
If there is one quibble (and I don't even know if the stadium mod had anything to do with this) it is too many fans NOT wearing Cubs stuff. The crowd is very colorful, but too much red, yellow, brown, and other colors. I saw the occasional jersey or whatnot but not nearly enough that you'd see at a big league game.
Otherwise, this is exceptional. Looking forward to downloading some others and taking a look.
so, in other words, until you guys actually make something with this new tool, many of us will be left in the dark of how awesome this tool really is. I'm with Y4L here: I get that you guys are excited but until I actually see a finished image (or a work-in-progress) I'll just shrug my shoulders about it.
this is very good news, picklebrad. I had noticed that you had "disappeared" from the site for almost a month and wondered why you had left. Glad to see that you used time away from the site to do more modding.
I just made sure every team released all of the draft picks or didn't sign any of them. I believe there is an option for your team to not sign any draft picks. It's hard to remember, though, since I've only done it once. But I remember going through the same thing you did, signing draft picks and then the rosters are all messed up, so I went back to a previous save (I always back mine up) and loaded it up, did the draft again and then noticed something on the screen saying to release all draft picks, or something like that.
heh, thanks for the help with the magnifying lens. I, like you said, did not see that until you pointed it out being there.
Also, thanks for the help with "appearance" tab and skin tone. I had seen that but didn't know what to change values to. I guess it will be trial and error to find the right color for guys. Now that I know where to look, I'll try to do a search for a color listing chart or something.
