HERE IS A LIST OF THE NEW FEATURES IN VERSION 10 FOOTBALL

 

1) Actual Team Interception Returns - An optional feature, Actual Team Interception Returns, has been added that gives each real-life pro team their own customized interception return chart. If utilized the team chart will be used in lieu of the standard interception return chart and it will result in a more accurate portrayal of each team's ability to return interceptions.

2) "So Far Today" Feature - Tell you what the primary player of the previous play has done at the end of each play.

3) New Timeout Feature - Allows you to call a timeout when there are either one or two ticks left on the clock at the end of the half. You can use this to wind down the clock while still leaving enough time for a final play or two when you are on offense.

4) Report on Multiple Teams - This new feature allows you to select multiple teams and then run reports on all of those teams. This will be a great time-saver for commissioners who often need to run statistical reports for all of the teams in a league.

5) Rule Change - We now allow 3rd and 4th Wide Receivers to be double-teamed by the OLB on his side of the field. 

6) Rule Change - When using the Draft League Defensive Cards, if a pass completion to a double-teamed player is being overridden to be an incomplete pass due to the double-team, and the pass would go for negative yardage, then don't override the completion - let it stand as-is since the negative yardage play is worse than the completion. 

7) UPnP Support - An option has been added to use Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) if it is available with your router. 

8) Game Lobby - Ignore Lists have been added to the Game Lobby.

9) Game Lobby - An indicator has been added to the Game Lobby that shows which people have started playing a game (their Game Lobby is inactive while playing the game).

10) Computer Manager - You can now change whether or not the computer manager is in control of each team during a game. Note: this feature is disabled for email leagues.

11) Exhausted RBs will get Injured - An option has been added that forces exhausted running backs to get injured. Please see the Game Rules dialog for more information.

12) League Schedule Report - Has been improved to separate out the schedule into weekly sections for easier use.

13) New Additional Players Added - There have been a number of new additional players added to various seasons. Please see the list below.

14) Universal Comuter Manager - Include with this version's computer managers (CMs) is a new Offensive Universal CM "NFLed_universalCM_O.mgr" which is designed for those who would like to easily customize a CM for draft or stock team play.

15) Support for New Seasons - Support for the 2009 and 1959 seasons has been added to the Pro game.

 

 

HERE IS A LIST OF BUGS FIXED SINCE THE PREVIOUS VERSION:

1) When a game ended as a tie the standings would give one team a win and the other team a loss.

2) After completing a manual game when the computer is autoplaying the rest of the schedule the game would show the scores of the other games but it wasn't including overtime results in that display.

3) In the rare event that the kicking team had multiple consecutive penalties that backed it up inside their 5-yard line another penalty could cause it to start kicking from the end-zone (instead of using half-the-distance penalty rules).

4) A bug has been fixed in the College game that prevented some playoff league games from starting.

5) Starting Quarterbacks would sometimes not use the QB specified in the QBS file.

6) Drive Chart Fixes

  • False Start penalties where counting as plays in the Drive Chart - this has been fixed.

  • The yardage at the end of a half or the end of a game was wrong.

  • The yardage gained on fumbled kicked returns was wrong.

  • College Overtime was adding time of possession for the plays, but this should not be counted. Also the possession section now says "OT" instead of a period.

  • The kick following a safety was not being reported correctly.
