Looking forward to following and seeing how it goes. Are you printing your own cards from PDF? Or did you purchase the printed card set?
I have spent the last week or so, printing, perforating, separating, and setting up their opening day rosters.
I think in the future, I am going to get a rotary cutting tool (recommended over on the Table Top Sports forum in a FCB thread) and cut them that way - this will eliminate the separating step, and maybe make it go a little faster. I do have a slide cut paper cutter, but I just don't like it.
Oh, and I had to buy a new printer too, as my old one, when I added "generic" toner, well, died. I could have bought new, on-brand toner for $60 more than a new color laser printer cost - so I just got a new printer.
Brett i will be following...I am starting a new adventure with Statis pro that will require me cutting, laminating etc. so I appreciate and applaud your efforts....I have watched you tubes of Fall Classic, been messaging Greg, and of course checked the forums...seems like an easy game to learn but with added bells and whistles that generate more interesting results...it's definitely on my list of games to try as we approach the new year...best of luck with '86....Bob
Thanks Bob, good to hear.
This one will, if I keep plugging at it, have a "Mike Mathias" vibe to it from the Replay forums, with my own touches, of course.
Being a stat nerd, I love entering the stats, and seeing the compiled reports, and building stat reports (that I share). But my least favorite part is doing a game report for EVERY game, which in a full season attempt, is a LOT of reports. So I am working on something so that I can give a quick summary of the game, with the linescore, WP/LP/SV.
We shall see how it shakes out.
Perhaps spotlight a couple games a week, then post who's hot, who's not
Yeah, that had crossed my mind.
I'll figure something out.
Most of it stems from me thinking as I do a full game report - "I could be playing another game right now!" LOL.
I am hoping that as I learn the game engine, my times speed up - averaging about 30 minutes right now. That may help.
I am definitely in the "Post Less, Play More" stage in my gaming career

After a rough first inning in which Steve Garvey smacked a 2-run Home Run (1), Fernando Valenzuela (1-0) settled down and
pitched a complete game against the Padres. The Dodgers tied it up in the 3rd when Valenzuela lined a double down
the RF line, Garvey was close to making the catch, but was unable to, Mariano Duncan walked, and two batters later
they both scored on a single from Bill Madlock. They went ahead in the 6th when Madlock singled, moved to third on
a single from Greg Brock. With one out, Franklin Stubbs doubled them both home. For his part, Stubbs was thrown out
at home to end the inning on a single from Steve Sax. Eric Show (0-1) took the loss.
