JSB 2009 Development Notes

We are currently working on the brand new version of Jump Shot Basketball. This version will be free to anyone who purchases the current version of our game between now and November 1st. The game is being designed using Visual C# 2008 and WPF. WPF is a graphical subsystem for rendering user interfaces in Windows-based application. This is fairly new technology that I needed to learn but I now have a full grasp of it and allows development of the game to come much easier. It is very powerful and allows some features that I didn’t think possible. The game will feature realistic full sequences that will play out in an animated full court display and will be completely customizable and realistic. We have stopped and started this project several times in the past and started from scratch on several occasions but we are far enough along that we wont be starting over again.
Please check back for more updates as we continue along.

    For those of us who purchased JSB years ago and were promised that in doing so we would also have a free copy of your “upcoming game” is that commitment still going to be honored? Or is the free copy now only limited to those who purchase the game in the time frame listed above?

  2. JSB Crew says:

    Yes, its a free for all. We have disappointed many over the years so a free copy is the LEAST we can do.
    The timeframe doesn’t really have a start date, just an end date.

    I’m also one of those JSB purchasers years ago, what should I do if I have change my contact details? Who should I contact to confirm my membership?

  4. JSB Crew says:

    Send your new info to info@shotsports.com.
    We still have a database of registrations that we can update.

  5. John says:

    Email sent. Hope to receive positive response.

    Hey, I purchased the game years ago as well when it was promised that a new version would be handed out for free. How, can I go about getting this version of the game once it comes out (I don’t think I even remember my information)?


    I’d like to add that this game is unbelievably good, and I am looking forward to the new version. Also, the new site it good, keep up the good work!

  7. JSB Crew says:

    Thanks Nikola,
    We will send the new version to the email that the game was registered with. If this changes users can let us know of the new info and your old email or transaction id as best as possible and we will update the records.

    I’ve been playing with the demo and am very interesting in purchasing the full version, but was wondering about if I’m able to create a copy of the existing player file and update it and use it as the default? I’ve been playing around with this and I’ve moved LeBron and Bosh to Miami and when I start the game, it still states they are on Cleveland and Toronto, respectively. Will this be something I will be able to do if I were to purchase the full version? As well as the freezing of the game during simulation using Windows 7; will this stop with the purchase of the full version?

    Also, will the divisions be broken up into 6 instead of 4 in the full version? And is there a way to slow down the simulation, slower than what’s available in the demo, if the full version if purchased?
