Thanks so much for reaching out to me.. it's always a blast to hear from fans of this game which is so near and dear to my heart.
I think creating a stats disk is always a great idea, but I don't have a way to do it right now... probably the best thing is, as you mentioned, is for fans to do this.
If you're still playing on an Amiga, then the only option I'm aware of right now is to use the Commissioner's tools on the Amiga and hand enter the data (what a labor of love that would be).
If you're on a PC version, there are actually some import tools in the EWB II Commissioner's disk.
I'm not sure that I can be much more help at this time, but keep me posted on this.
That's part of it. But I think a lot of the weight given to the game is more about how innovative it was - years ahead of its time. The camera angles, the unique stadiums, the arcade mode vs. manager mode. It's ridiculous how much new stuff it offered.But it was not because of the one disk you got for the game. Playing various historical teams against one another does not make one of the best games of all time. It was the combination of the stat disks, commissioner disks, and your own league disks that accomplished all of this.
I think that's a fair point. The attributes could be used to really skew things and taking a fan's bias into the equation... well. Not easy. I don't think you could ever get the balance perfect where the Cubs win every time. There were so many variables involved in the playoffs as well as the WS. And how does a game take injuries into account? It can't, really, which means so many different outcomes would occur.But it's not a simple matter of inputing the names and inserting the stats... I don't think the stats mean a damn thing to the game; it's all about the attributes given to each player...
Well, I could add the giant scoreboard. And heck, back then they were still only day games. Although by 1988 they added the lights... kind of right on the cusp (although the game only shows day games IIRC).You can even attempt to make the new ballbarks; although that wouldn't matter for the Cubs!
