New APBA Scheduler Program
- While doing my monthly machine backup, I found my APBA
Scheduler. Unfortunately, I don't have the code for this, so it's a
take-it-as-you-get-it. But it works extremely well. The RHL has been
using it for years now.
It's a Windows executable. Download it from my website:
Put it in the directory with your APBA files and then run it. You then
assign games for each division until each division has the number of games
you want them to play -- hopefully, the same for each division!
It works by specifying the number of home games each team plays against
out-of-conference opponents, in-conference opponents, and in-division
opponents. To make things equal when you have non-equal divisions, you can
then assign extra games within a division.
Click on "Make Schedule" and it will give you a textual schedule to look
over. If you like it, then click on "Save Schedule" and it will save a
SCHEDULE.DAT and the text schedule in SCHEDULE.TXT.
Good luck and hope it works without bugs for you as I can't fix it! 8-)
Kudos to Brad Utterstrom who found a bug in my player loading routine. I
had the real penalty data mixed up with the sim penalty data. If you
downloaded the reporter.zip before 10:00pm Alberta time last night, you
might want to re-download to get the fix. I also added some player
rankings per Brad's suggestions for Hits, Blocked Shots, and Fighting Majors.
