  3. Any updates on the recoded in VS2010 version of JSB 5.xx?

    This is what I am looking forward too. Even if you want someone to just test it for you. Let me know.

  4. I want to create a city file so everytime I start a new game I will always have the same city information saved (population, economy ect.). Is there any way I can do that?

  5. You can either attempt to edit the .frn file with an editor (the file is not very edit friendly) from the default league you are using to create your new leagues or you can create a new league named default* ie. default2011 then click edit cities make your changes and then you can create your new leagues with your edited default league in this case default2011)

  6. Alfred,
    I hope to release it in the next week. I am having a difficult time updating all the button controls right now. I will post it as a test build only. Thanks as always.

    Erik Z :Me and my wife just enjoyed our first season of JSB. The game plays fine until we reach the playoffs. It seems only one of us can play our game, and then the schedule goes blank except for that one game. The only way around this is to simulate the rest of that playoff day. This means that only one of us can coach our game each day. Anyone else having this problem?

    Hi Erik,
    I have this problem too – my league has been going for ten seasons, and I’ve had it every single season except for the very first.
    Frank, can you provide some insight into how to fix this issue?

    Could we please get an update on this issue?

  8. JSB Crew :
    Trying to Fix this today as part of the patch

    Great news, was waiting for it too!
    Where can I found the patch and/or roster updates?

  9. I need help from someone on here.

    I have a league I created that has the bug in the playoffs. The bug has caused one of the playoff series to be stuck and never end. Is there a way to reset the playoffs and start the playoffs over? Are there files I can delete to start the playoffs over or even to start the season over?

    I don’t want to recreate the league just because of this bug.

    Any ideas?

  10. Heya! Good to hear that the patch is progressing. To clarify, this is the conversion to the new VB in the patch?

    Also, we have the league rolling so, if you wouldn’t mind linking it, it’s http://www.theobwl.com/

    We’re in December of our first season and the commish and I are looking forward to any updates you have.

    Thanks again for the work you’ve put in! 🙂

    Eric,

    Maybe you can help me – my post asking for help has not cleared moderation yet. Here is the problem. I was in the playoffs of my league and the “playoff bug” got me so that I am stuck in the playoffs because one of the series cannot end.

    How can I erase the playoffs and start the playoffs over? Or how can I start the season over? Can I just delete a couple files? I don’t want to start my league over.

    Thanks for your help – Jerry

  12. The upcoming patch should correct this. In the meantime send the league files so I can make sure. (All files starting with the league name)

  13. Does anyone have an idea how we can get the game play by play and the boxscore into one file ?

  14. Has anyone done a rookie file for this current rookie class ? Looking forward to the patch. A

  15. I have a new playoff bug. I just finished round 1 of the playoffs just fine. However, when I get to Playoff Day 8, where my scheduled Round 2 games are, the Sim/Coach/Box buttons do not appear and I cannot coach my game.

  16. Hi!

    I have a new problem. I gave my saved game to a friend and after he sent it back to me, i can’t do the HTML Output anymore. The Game says “Access to an unnamed file was denied”, the same happens when I try to delete this saved game. Any ideas how to fix that? Don’t want to lose all the work

  17. Hi,

    More information about the bug I posted on 7/25. If I sim the first game of the series, I can coach the rest, but then the first game of the next series the buttons do not appear again.

    Also, if I open a box score of some of the playoff games, the attendance is a 10 digit number.

    Any thoughts on these issues?

  18. @Jerry: I got the same bug! Don’t know how to fix that. Form the Second Day on you have to sim the whole day!

    Anybody knows something about my problem posted on 7/27 ?

  19. Jerry
    Can you send me the league files again?
    Sorry for the delay.
    I need to release an official patch soon but need to fix issues like these along the way

  20. I sent you the file already a year ago, when i had a similar problem. that won’t help! everybody else, that opens that file doesn’t have the problem. i feel like like it could be because of th privacy settings on my computer or something. maybe something comes to your mind, because i don’t find the problem.

    another problem is that i load the file and it’s in the game April 15th, but when anyone else opens the file, it’s the end of the regular season, which means may, 2nd.

    it’s just crazy and annoying!

  21. I called him 3 times, left several emails. He is unreachable… What a pity ! I hope he is allright.

  22. Hmm.. I was thinking of buying this, but I am hearing a LOT of bad things about it’s programing. Can anyone tell me if the current build is actually stable??

    Thanks

  23. Recently bought the game. Will not run, error message says make sure default 04-05 is in the jsb application. When I try to paste that file in the application as directed, it shuts down the program completely. Have been messing with this for two days with no luck just about to give up and get my money back. If anyone from the company is watching (i know thet probably r not-they have my money) please attempt to help.

  24. Did the demo work properly?
    Go into the folder where the game is installed, Probably C:Program Files/Jump Shot/ and delete the entire folder. Then try a reinstall from the link provided when you purchased the game.
    If you didn’t install the demo we recommend installing the demo after you have deleted the folder but it is probably not necessary.

  25. Hello I am trying to create a historical file for the years 1980-2011, I I have all the data in a csv file correctly formatted (or at least I think), but every time I try to import the data I get the same message “player data file import unsuccessfull”. I cant figure out what I am doing wrong. Any suggestion would help.

  26. Frank,

    I sent you my files a couple times. Can you give me an ETA when they can be tested and fixed?

    Thanks,

    Jerry

  27. Hi Franck, nice to see you again, I called you 3 times and left about 3 emails.
    I want to propose you to work with me on a new game. Why don’t you want to speak about it please ?
    Here is my email adress nakachelaurent@yahoo.fr
    hope to talk with you soon
    laurent

  28. By the way, will there be a new game edition, new rosters update or new editor tool soon please ?

    I love JSB, don’t forget us

  29. Can somebody please tell me what the FUT, PLB and STA files are for? In my experience playing this game (and it’s been a few years now) I’ve found very useful to know which file is assigned to what in order to solve game crashes. For example, if you create a team with a dash on its name, the history file (.HIS) will stop working, and you’ll get a crash to desktop if you try to access it from the game.

  30. I made the download purchase of your games about 3 days ago (1/25/12). My computer crashed today. Computer hard drive locked up. Would you make it possible to get the game back again without another purchase? I am getting my new drive up loaded up again with programs that I would like to keep. Thank You for your help!

  31. I’ve seen in 2 tickets about this and gotten no replies.
    I bought JSB 2 years ago and later had a hard drive crash and lost all my programs, JSB included. I don’t want to have to pay another $15 for something I already bought, I still have the EMail with my receipt of purchase, but the link no longer works. How do I get JBS back now without having to buy it again?

  32. I keep checking here just hoping to read something…update on Frank, on the game, on anything. I feel great sadness when I think perhaps it’s all over.

  33. I think it speaks to the hope we all have that we do keep coming back. It also speaks to the lack of a quality sim basketball game out there — PERIOD.

    Have played that other Text Sim Basketball game and every time I fire it up (even after paying for it) it hurts to try to play it. It seems clunky at best and lacking in what JSB offered and still does in sim leagues (not so much in single play).

    I would KILL to get a look at the source code of what Frank has and pool together with minds smarter than my own to get it going again and get it out for us all to enjoy.

    But for now 15 years and counting. (Wow just typing and reading that makes it seem sooo long).

    Frank you out there?

    Hope all is well!!!

  34. I know. I’m ready to update rosters to the season end but then I just wonder if I really should or what the future is. I compare JSB to the one other interesting game I’ve found out there and while the other game incorporates a lot of additional features, it makes me feel like I’m having to do so much work and while the ownership, gm functions are nice, the actual gameplay just isn’t as much fun as JSB. As to the other simulation games of the original JSB era, none compare to JSB. The one that comes close in that regard loses big time by having no career functions.

  35. I’m looking for software that will allow me to enter a specific NBA season, then play What If from that point; I don’t need actual game simulation at all. Are you aware of anything that would fill the bill?

    You and me both Alfred. I’ve rattled around since the early days when my friend and I were playing statis pro basketball card games and thought “there has to be a way to do this on computer”… go figure, somebody already had!

    Anyhow, I am sure there will be a check in and the best of intentions. My only hope is that the torch gets carried further either by the good JSB crew or by somebody they hand the baton off to.

  37. as someone who has only played the demo for a few days, would you guys recommend i buy this? I am very happy with the demo but I’m seeing that many people are having trouble with the playoffs (I haven’t simmed that far yet, but I am very happy with the game so far). I think I would be happy with this game as is, without any developer updates in the near future. With that in mind, do you guys think this is a good buy for $12.99?
