Re: Help: Operation Round-card Girl.

Had you looked at the photos posted at OOTPD, you would have seen round-card girls in standard attire. Although we have some topless RCG photos, they are the minority. It's never a good idea to upstage the principal attractions, which are the fighters themselves! As those who care to look can see, t...

Re: Help: Operation Round-card Girl.

Is 2.5 still available? Here or elsewhere? I understood from e-mails with Paul that he had the rights. Also, the point really is irrelevant: As I recall, the current bout log isn't all that different from the old one. So, do we want better graphics or not? Do we want the round-card girls atop the ro...

Re: Knockout Rate

I'm not that familiar with the more recent versions of the games; however, at least in TB2.5, the performance is linked intimately to the boxer profile data. This comes from the original (card) game (which I always call the Trunzo model). A typical class heavyweight in the Trunzo model was Jersey Jo...

Re: Game Development

In the Trunzo model, punching is scored per a 3-card sequence we did not change. The first card (the "CF card") established control; the second card (the "RN card") generated the random number (1-80); and the third card (the "result card") generated the result. If a fighter's PL were 1-40, that mean...

Re: Game Development

In the Trunzo model, there is no actual movement in the game. The corners and (half) the ropes exist solely for pinning or cornering. Pinning or cornering affects control factor for the duration of the pin. Other than this, action occurs primarily in the vast wasteland of "ring center." As mentioned...

The most important thing we can have is restoration of some of the features we lost from TB2.5: 1.

Re: Do we have something against boxers from Argentina?

I have had individual fighters do this to me. I found that the tcbx file was corrupted in some way, and that the only fix was to reinstall the fighter as a "new" entry, then delete the old one. Maybe that's too long-handed, but it does work.

Display Fix Needed!

I don't know about anyone else, but my bout logs are showing black type on a charcoal background.

This makes them all but unreadable until they are transferred to a word program where I can change the colors.

N.B.: Some of the type is yellow, and this or white would show up nicely.

Re: No Access to Imported 2.5 Fighter Records

There is something wrong with the imported fighter file, itself (I tried others, and they work).

I'll assassinate the file and import a replacement. It probably failed to load correctly when first imported (I've had that happen before in 2.5).
