Default Hoops Manager

Hi guys

I am the developer of Hoops Manager and would like to introduce it to you.

Hoops Manager is a sports simulation app where you take control of an NBA franchise and try to lead it to victory. It has an advanced in game simulation as well as everything you would expect in the NBA (salary cap, bird rights, free agency, rookie draft, trades (of players and draft picks), awards and much more. I am very proud of the game and, if you like the genre of game, hope you will give it a try. It can be found on the App Store here.
A rather lengthy overview video can de found on you tube here.

Thanks

Stephen

Hoops Manager is played on a single iPad not through Game Center or some sort of network/internet. You can have as many human managers as you want, (up to 30 - one for each team) and they can conduct trades on the device, but you can not trade or play with other instances on other iPads. Of course, you can also trade with the teams managed by the computer.

Sorry but thanks for the question.

So far so good (for the most part). I am enjoying watching my games sim on a pass by pass basis however the wait time between my games is a bit much as all games are simulated like this it seems. It just takes a long time to sim each day (25-30 seconds per game and often simulating 10+ games to get to the next day). Not too big of a deal for the hardcore players that want a realistic sim season and not sure this can be adjusted while keeping AI team/player stats equal to human controlled team/player stats. The game will occasionally crash when removing/adding teams to trades. 3-team trades need to be looked at as well. If one team agrees to the terms the "make trade" button appears no matter how much the third team hates the trade (they can give up everything and get nothing yet the trade can still be executed).

Overall though this is a a sim game with tons of upside.

Thanks for the feedback CptMurdock!

I am looking at trades at the moment (fixing a different issue), and I believe I have identified the problem with your 3 team trade issue.

Looking at the code (I have not tested it yet), it looks like if the 2nd team does not like the trade but the third does, the third overrides the response of the second and the trade can be processed (assuming it passes the salary cap rules). That is a big problem (or a fun exploit I guess depending on how you look at it! lol). Thanks for finding it and pointing it out, I will try to put a fix in for that as well as the other trade related bug.

Thanks

Stephen

I have fixed the issue -should have caught it in testing :-( Now I need to ensure that the two fixes I have logged do not cause any other problems, and if they do not I should be submitted a new build to Apple within the next couple of days.

Thanks for the information and, until a new build is out, that is an absolutely amazing way to game the system and really mess up a team. I just used it to get Kevin Love for Emeka Okofur lol

I have also fixed an issue which could cause a crash when removing teams (or when changing draft year under certain circumstances). I am in the process of testing it, and expect I will submit a new build to Apple today which will resolve these three trade related issues.

Thanks again for the feedback, it really helps me resolve issues and bugs and makes the game better!

Stephen
