Same ol Same ol

Post by johnnywayne » Tue 21 Oct, 2014 3:49 pm

This game will NEVER have a career mode, it is as simple as that.

I could go on and on how BORING the game is without a career mode, but by all means waist your money and buy this game (not really a game, more like a very boring simulator of epic boring dimensions).

The game is so boring I went to play it and my computer put itself in sleep mode to save itself from having to load this game.

This game could come with a warning "May cause sleepiness", "DO NOT attempt to play this while trying to have fun"

Yes that BORING!!!

I am sorry you find it boring, but not everyone is going to like the same things. There are a number of poeple on this forum that do enjoy the "what if" replay approach. I have made a point of stating its a simulation in the discription as I don't like the idea of people feeling mislead, it is what it is.

When I first saw this game I did not get it, but having played it a while I came to love it which is why I bought the rights and continued to devlep it. This game has increased my knowedge and love for the sport, which alone has made this a great project for me personally.
This game will NEVER have a career mode, it is as simple as that.
I am happy to say you are quite wrong here. It has always been the plan to create a career mode once this verson was released. I have already designed the main componants of the management game and I am in the process of implimenting them. The next vesion, TB2015, will allow you to take on the roll of a boxing manager and progress your stable of fighters through thier careers. Exactly what you feel is missing, so please check it out when its released. Having worked on Champtionship Manager (Edios) renamed Football Manager (SEGA) I feel I have a good understanding of how to convert this simulation into a management game.

Watch this space.... its on its way ;)

Paul..thnx for a reply, but honestly not going to hold my breathe on a career mode, but if it does my opinion might change, but goodluck with that, I will check back from time to time.

OOh and yes I was pissed when I bought the game off of Gamersgate and it had no career mode but just...well just...blaaaaaahhh. Not my idea of fun, sorry but that is 100% true, and I am a Manager game fanatic so don't think i like button basher games I DESPISE them more then...well more then this game..LOL.

Hanson Brothers (already to comical and too easy) trust me you wont win a troll a thon with me, so to save the message board a comical beat down of you, your best bet is to move on. **OOh Snap**, or should I say **Mmm Bop**

*Pfft Hanson Brothers...BAHAHAAHA what Milli Vanilli already taken?

Hey johnnywayne,

Evidently you bear none of the qualities which the coincidental reference to the great actor and American icon that your screen name eludes to. You really do not need to be here if you can not muster the mental power to understand what the game or simulation does presently or know anything of the history of the game itself. Where it is going is in Paul's hands and constructive suggestions are always welcome. Argumentative insults to members who like to participate here is just crude behavior. I hope you would not be so willing to act in this manner if you were in the same room with the people you are disparaging. The result might be somewhat different than a TYPED RESPONSE.

Thank you.

JP

I have played the game since it was a board game back in the 70's,I could care less about a career mode as this is a SIMULATION and if you have IMAGINATION then you can create your own universe and career mode. I like the replays,tourneys,rating fighters etc. I am just glad that someone cared enough to keep this game going. I'm sure Paul is not getting rich off this game as text based sport sims are not the rage these days lol. Hopefully, this game will get better and better and we all can continue to play for many years in the future. Peace people.

Please do not confuse this oik with the famed member of the Wayne & Shuster comedy duo.

As for the career mode, it will be here when it is here. If you had even a tiny amount of imagination you would not need a career mode to create and run a universe, but a piece of software that will allow even you to do that will be available in the very near future. God willing.

Sorry you can not grasp this, but career mode does not mean taking care of 1000+ fighters....HELLOOOOO!!!!

You want a universe then I am happy for you (this game...err job is for you), but to appeal to the masses, the game needs a career mode and instead of game play that seems more like a job then actual fun.

lets reCAP for you:

- Career Mode does not mean doing EVERYTHING in the game
- Career Mode does not mean 100000000000000000000000000000000000 fighters to handle
- Career Mode does not mean boredom after 30 minutes and then deleting the game.

I know back in your day building mud pies was your XBox, but sorry some of us where born after electricity was discovered.

Hello

I've been off this for a couple of months working away.

I was just wondering if there was any further developments or updates to keep us in the loop.

Cheers :)

As I said before, I can take or leave the career mode, have loved Title Bout since the board game. The things I crave in a boxing sim are realism and a constantly updated fighter database. I want to see a guy rated 9 have his rating changed when he loses 4 fights in a row. The active database is the key for me. I love to have new fighters as well as those from years past. My imagination can do the rest. The career mode will make a lot of fans happy and I'm sure I will give it a go and enjoy it, however, just give me the same game with new bells and whistles and make sure that when we hit update everything uploads correctly and does not mix up fighters and ratings. I applaud Paul and anyone helping him for taking on this task! This is why the game has lasted so long, fans who are developers. I am here to help in any way needed. I would love to get an update and possible release date as well. Peace fellas! :D

Sorry for the silence guys, there has been a lot going on in my life this year and TB has had to take a back seat for a while.

As I have said before TB is a labour of love which is both good and bad. The bad is obvious, TB has to play second fiddle to my "day job" that pays the bills. This means I can;t give an absolute time scale. However the positive is that TB is not a game for profit so it won't be cancelled on financial grounds. Things would have to go very wrong here for me to give up on it. So although unpredictable and slow its quite safe.

From what you say because you have not had time to work on it it still sounds some way off is there no chance you could just put it out as beta now? Atleast then we could play it while we are waiting for you to finish it off from the videos your son put out all that time ago it looked playable even if it’s not finished? If not do you think you could give any kind of guess about a time scale I no you said you can’t give an absalute time scale but could you give a ruff one? Is there any chance of it being ready before the end of this year? Atleast some sort of ruff date would give us something to look forward to and give you something to aim for

Fabulous. So, sometime this decade? That still gives you two years. If you can't make a profit out of it why not just sell it to someone who has the money to push it forward? You could still work part time on it while a full time programmer does the lion's share of the work. This is a sad end to a great sim.
