- Hi guys,
Sure been calm around here lately...
I had a couple of questions regarding the operation of the programs (
APHCOMM and HOCKEY) and the possibility to network multiple version of
the hockey program.
1- I know for a fact that the hockey data files can't be shared, which
is most probably due to the fact that multiple programs writing
information at the same time would be bad. But is there a way to share
these files anyway? What I'd like to do is run two instance of the
program to prepare one game while the other one is being played (we play
all our games in computer coached mode). This way it would save the
preparation time... I'm hoping this can be done, but i've got serious
2- The schedule format. Can a text file be imported/exported from that?
The file itself can be read and probably interpreted since it's got to
be a script definition, i'm obviously more interested in the possibility
to make my own schedule and import it in the hockey program (possibly
with a program that would make and import the schedule, and that i'd
share with everybody if my programming skills haven't left me... unless
such a program already exist?)
3- Is there any plans to incorporate a "lineup" load/save function in
the game... This obviously would help anybody that got to run the game.
Possibly in the ".prf" format to stay compatible with the APHCOMM
4- What are the plans for 4 on 4 overtime and 1pts in overtime loss for
next year so we can figure our rules?
And before you guys start flaming me, please know I understand Dave and
Jeff are busy on their ends. I'm just trying to start a discussion on
what can be done, what could be done (or not), and what are planned to
be done so we can rearrange our rules and schedules....
P.S.: I guess most of you guys are getting close to playoffs, to all in
the real season, good luck... To the rest, it gives you a couple more
weeks to prepare for 2000-2001!! Now, can you figure i'm in the playoff?!

had, as its #1 line, Lindros-LeClair-B.Hull. The three of them consistently
finish in the top 10 scorers, and in fact have finished in the top 5 more
than once. In fact, at the end of the last season all thre were in the top
10, two of them in the top 5 (along with my second-line centre Lafontaine).
So with come combinations, it works very well; your mileage may vary.
