- Jun 16, 2010Contrary, Dave Koch is very good at support and is very well worth the price of the game. I play his baseball, football and basketball games. Intend to get hockey next month.

Regarding 'no support software to send in lines'.That is exactly the same as APBA hockey.Technically, you could just have people send in their lines as a text lineupand input them manually - just like APBA if you don't have the extra user-written software.Prior to getting a licensed version of APHCOMM for our league - that is exactly what we did.It should not be construed as a negative because the software is not explicitly setupfor leagues to be able to run with a single copy of the software - but note that it CAN be done. So I don'tconsider that anyone is held hostage. Just some extra work for the league commissioners.AndrewMy intention would be to write an APHComm like interface to the game files to make the game more "league friendly". There are also probably others out there that are better programmers that would likely do a better job than I. I worry about that approach, as the game sales are needed to keep the game viable and alive from a business aspect long term. However, holding 20 people hostage that will never actually play the game themselves is not the right answer either. Not sure if the data files are encrypted or not (I haven't bought the game yet due to lack of time), but that would be a roadblock to a third party roster editor. Not sure how things will play out, but your concerns are well founded and will need to be addressed by any leagues considering migration from APBA.

PC Hockey simulator. It's pretty cool. The problem is, if you run a league (as I do) there's no support software where teams can send you their lines and strategies. At first glance it appears that everyone in the league needs to shell out the $40 to take part. Also, you need to pay every year for the updates.
