If you do a SimMatchup now you get to pick a style of offense, but you don't have complete control. I am assuming this page give us full control over teams, right?
Posted by dream76 on 1/17/2013 11:47:00 PM (view original):I've put together a test page that you can run two teams (or the same team) against each other in a test game and get results. This will be available during beta. It currently does not save game results as I don't want to fill the database with data, so if there are any funky results, the user will need to copy and paste them to save them and post them. But it should give you a good overall sense of the engine results and will allow you to try different settings and playbooks without waiting for scheduled games.
Maybe this has been asked before, but is it possible to include the beta test teams in the SimMatchup or similar engine so we could run multiple games against the opponents of our choosing?
The test page will load whatever playbooks you have set up for your game plan, so you can change your game plan, run a game, change your game plan, run a game, and so on. So, yes, you can test your own playbooks and settings.
It does not show the normal game result/pbp page. It can't since I don't save the game results as we normally do, but it does show player stats and pbp on the page when you run the game. I don't have the players on the play in there yet, but I'll see if I can get that in.
