Graphics, Football Star Manager V1.2.0 and all that..


Here’s a shot I made a long time back when I was thinking about the rewrite. I decided to create a new version of the original game which started on the ZX81 and TRS80 format. The game is really being enjoyed by lots of people. It does not have the graphics, similar to the photos, but that is not a permanent decision.

Firstly many versions of Football Manager, my original game, NEVER had graphics, Acorn Electron, Commodore Plus 4, Vic 20 for example. And the players were very happy. The “Stick men”.. “3D”.. graphics shown here were an add on I made when I adapted the game to the Sinclair ZX Spectrum late in 1982. The original game was launched in January 1982.

Football Star Manager will go through a similar evolution! 🙂

I am going to add an option to have match highlights but it will be an option, not everybody thinks it is better so everyone will have a choice!

Before I start on that I have version 1.2.0 in progress which will be ready in a few weeks and has a few good changes.
