Title: Anyone interested in getting a MLF/TUFF league going again.
Post by: rollntider on June 25, 2021, 10:31:27 AM
I messaged a few of you guys on FB, sorry for the spam. I messaged Ben, maybe he can get some of the TUFF band together.

https://www.wolverinestudios.com/games/draft-day-sports-college-football

I have been looking at that game and its looks like a good sim similar to what we used with TUFF.
I have been jonesing for a Front page sports replacement, but this looks like it is close.

Lets discuss if anyone is interested and we can go from there.

Hopefully Ben will want to resurect the TUFF and we can do college and eventually pro. And if we like we can do the pro version again. If not and we get enough people we can maybe do a pro league based on the MLF.

Here are some things I propose:

No powerhouses.  Yeah I love Bama and BoJack likes his Clemson, but I propose to leave these teams out.

We use an AAC/MAC/SUnbelt type of conference.

If some one wants they can be in the SEC/ACC/Big 10 etc... if they chose a vanderbilt/Rutgers/Duke type of team.

I would like to use 2 commishes, I would be the main runner, but have another person to for back up and to sim every other week. (If possible) Not sure if that is possible but it helps that everything is not done by one person.

Would we want real teams/ real teams and a conference of custom teams(TUFF college Conference) / or just a generic fake teams?

I propose this for a few reasons. I have been non existent on here, this will give me the drive again, it will help drive traffic here, and it was fun.

Of course I use TUFF as an example but Ben has to sign off on any TUFF affiliation because that is his baby.

please feel free to add anything you guys want to see or ideas.

Dude I am terrible with them also. I remember phenom being a whiz with OOTP baseball.

so we have 2 people interested nice. Need Norm and Bojack for sure. Please see my edited post above. Give any suggestion you might like.

Also if anyone wants to spam former members and TUFF/MLF folks please do so. WOuld be awesome to get the band back together.

I am searching to see if you can stream the simmed games.

Nice thanks Norm.... I reached out to Ben. I think I will reach out to Dom also. Will try WalkerWrs (if I got his user name wrong, sorry, I know his real name on FB though)

Hmm. It's interesting. I think if you "depowered" the big schools then it wouldn't matter. I need to go through the site and get an idea of what is what.

I played around with the game last night getting used to it. I took the akron zips and renamed them, and guess what, I went 3-9 Woo Hoo....It is a test league to get used to the controls and practice playing with everything.
The recruiting is a bit harder to understand than anything. I signed a bunch of 2 and 3 stars. i let the CPU do most of the work.

How the season played out:
Interestingly Baylor played Clemson for the natty and 13-2 Clemson wont the Natty.
Baylor finished 13-2
Bama finished 11-3 won the SEC did not make the playoffs. (beast Michigan in Orange Bowl)
I noticed each time a SEC team reached #1 they went on a losing streak.

Bama lost 2 after getting #1
Auburn lost 5 after reaching #1
LSU lost 4 after hitting #1
UGA lost 3 after reaching #1

Clemson and OSU were the other #1 teams.

Clemson and Baylor all finished with 13-2 records (OU or OSU or Cincy finished 12-2 maybe all 3)
It was a big 12/ACC/Big 10 playoffs
I cant remember if Cincinnati or OU made the other playoff spot. (going off of memory)
SEC and PAC 12 left out
I think USC won the pac 12 with 4 losses.

wanted to report what I saw with the sims, just in case if you guys were interested.

Thats a concerning result, is it not?

i thought so but Bama lost to a good A&M and UGA
Auburn lost to LSU, Bama, UGA, Ole Miss and not sure who the last one was
LSU lost to Bama A&m Florida

note those werent all in a row. They were spread out. I do think Bama's was over 3 weeks. But it was interesting watching them all climb and then take the spot and then drop off.

It reminded me of the 2007 season when no one wanted to be the natty. LSU won it that year with 2 losses.

gonna sim a full season tonight and see if it is more normal

Final 4
WIsc
Clemson
LSU
Oregon

Clemson beats wisc 34-31

Clemson 14-1
Wisky 13-2
LSU 10-2 (Florida upset Arkansas in the SEC, LSU gets in the back door)
Oregon 11-3

did a fast sim .... kinda disappointed no undefeated team

I can use which ever logo you want. If there is a generic one post it, if you just want a letter on the helmet, just tell me what you want. I will adjust the colors accordingly.

That looks good.
I want group input. So, what about the attached for the mean machine logo?

Secondly, as everyone may know, I base this off of the original movie the Longest Yard.
However, the screwball comedy Necessary Roughness entered my mind which is the Texas State Armadillos.
Which one would everyone prefer to kick the crap out of? lol
Of should I just keep what tider has completed thus far?
And also, if I stay with what you have done, can you put the M on the helmet? Looks odd with different logos, especially different colors.

The game was on sale again for 24.99 so I just pulled the trigger on it. Apparently I didn't dig around enough the first time, I didn't know they also have pro football, college and pro hoops simulations too. May have to snoop around on those a bit more too for me if this game works out well enough.

Okay, logo...

After you log in (dashboard > Login) you should have gotten a password from me, if not check pms, or get back to me.

You can do nothing and choose the default training.
Or create a new training(create new schedule, training schedule... get it LOL). I did a default for everyone(jeff state). Maybe next year i will break it down by position.
You can also have your coaches concentrate on a player to help that guy along.

Sorry had a busy weekend. We kick off this next Friday.    will finish up Alberta this week and jeffstate. Sorry but this weekend was hectic.

no worries at all. I was just more curious, are we starting with the rosters you posted? And is there a league file yet or did I missit?

Yes sir.

To get the league file
Load league
Select Online
http://www.majorleaguefootball.net/NCAA.bin
then it loads...

as for rosters i was going with default. Did anyone want to change some players etc?
Also i assume the logo is good?

ok. I havent looked at anything yet, Ill peruse this when I get in tonite.
As for players to be renamed, is that a burden?
Certainly no intention of the changing the entire team and if its going to delay things I wouldnt do it it all.

Ill probably have more questions until I find my way through this software so bear with me guys, Im not familiar with it

Should not be a burden. i will be doing it manually. I can copy and paste them in.
As for learning no biggie. I started a thread with tutorials as I have learned them.
I plan on bringing over some tutorials from others on recruiting. But I gave a tiny info on how do to the training camp.

ok that worked, thanks!

Now, becaus Ive never done this before, I see where training camp with calendar icon is listed at the top left with the advance button below it. Does that mean I advance to get to training camp options? Or will that advance and sim my training camp?

Secondly, when do you want training camp finalized by?
Finally, I have name changes I want to make. Can that be done any time or does it have to be prior to training camp, or the season starting etc?

oops, one more....On my roster view, if there is a RS next to a players name, that means he has already used his redshirt status correct?

lol aaand one more thing....can I fire my coach(es)? or at least change their philosophy and style of play listed in the profiles?

You dont advance it, the commish does. You train you players.
Go here and I give a hopeful decent review how to do it.
http://blindsideblitz.com/forums/index.php?topic=728.msg9659#msg9659

Secondly, when do you want training camp finalized by?
Today  let say by 8pm.

Finally, I have name changes I want to make. Can that be done any time or does it have to be prior to training camp, or the season starting etc?
I think before the season starting is fine

oops, one more....On my roster view, if there is a RS next to a players name, that means he has already used his redshirt status correct?
Yes I believe so. I am still learning so what I say could be wrong, but I believe to be correct.
lol aaand one more thing....can I fire my coach(es)? or at least change their philosophy and style of play listed in the profiles?
I think you can do all of that. I will need to research how to do this.

I spent an unusual amount of time setting depth charts and gameplans. I followed your script regarding exports but I did not see a league folder in the directory as you described. I had the game open so I closed it out thinking it might reg=fresh, but nothing happened. I opened the game back up, logged in, and every setting and change I made was gone.
So, let me know what you think I did wrong because Im not wasting that much time again.

it does, thanks.

it seems like this is similar to NCAA console game, i.e., recruiting (from waht Ive read) and Im wondering if red shirting is the same.
In the old NCAA you would red shirt a guy to give him experience. You think that is the case here too? Or do you think its better to not redshirt a player even though they wont receive any pt?

Make any adjustments you want to your team, coaching roster etc.... I think this is the first week. I will sim game Friday @ 8 p.m. CST if no one objects.
I will look into streaming our games on twitch or something. Maybe not this week. But have it play out on twitch and people can watch if they want.
