Counterglow Blood Bowl League - Season 2

Right, we've done a test technology demo and we're ready to start people signing up for the real league. Please read all of the instructions in here before you start.

1. Create a Team.

NOTE: I CAN'T DELETE YOUR TEAM SO IF YOU FUCK THIS STEP UP YOU FUCK THE WHOLE LEAGUE UP!
  1. Fire up a new single player Campaign or Championship, create a new team and buy players, and when done go to Quit > Export Team. This places a copy of the team in the following directory:
    Code:
    XP: My Documents\BloodBowl\Saves\Teams
    Vista/Windows 7: Documents\BloodBowl\Saves\Teams
  2. You'll see a .db file with your team name. This is what you submit.
  3. Point your browser at http://bloodbowldigital.com/index.php?option=com_bbql. From there, click the Counterglow Blood Bowl League.
  4. In the "Upload a Team File" box, click the "Browse" button and find the team file that you exported above. Enter the password HARDMAN
  5. Click "Upload File"
  6. If all goes well, the app will consume your file and redirect your browser to your Team Page. Your team is now joined to the league you have chosen.

Source (we're doing an 'offline league')

2. Download and install free Hamachi client

https://secure.logmein.com/products/hamachi2/

Once it has installed, create yourself a login and add yourself to the CGBBLeague network. Password HARDMAN. We'll play the games via Direct-IP and this just makes life a bit easier!

How to play.

  • Agree a time to play, and which player will host the game.
  • Download your team from the online league and save it to your team directory. Overwrite any old version of the team, do not modify the file name!
    Code:
    XP: My Documents\BloodBowl\Saves\Teams
    Vista/Windows 7: Documents\BloodBowl\Saves\Teams
  • At appointed game time, log into the counterglow network on Hamachi. Hopefully you'll see your opponent also logged in. There is a very basic chat facility on Hamachi but you are probably better using MSN or something.
Host
  • Fire up Blood Bowl
  • Go to Multi-player then to LAN/Direct-IP games
  • Click the create/host game button
  • Select "Classic" rules and wait for your opponent to join you
Connecting Player
  • Make a note of your host's IP address from Hamachi (displayed next to their computer name)
  • Fire up Blood Bowl
  • Go to Multi-player then to LAN/Direct-IP games
  • Click "Connect to a remote game"
  • Enter the IP from Hamachi and connect
Both Players
  1. You should both now be able to see each other in the game. Pick your league team from the drop down in the top right and when you are ready click "Ready!" when both players are ready the host can launch the game.



After the Match

One player must upload the match report. Agree between you which will do it.
The file is uploaded to the main league page here:
http://bloodbowldigital.com/index.ph...e&leagueId=591

Quote:
Submitting Match Reports
Match Reports ARE NOT Replay files. I'll repeat that again later. Don't bother trying to upload a replay file, because the system will refuse it.

Immediately after playing a match, ONE (and only ONE) coach should submit the match report. It is important to submit this immediately, because the file that the game generates will get overwritten if you play another match. The file you must submit lives in the following location:
Code:
XP: My Documents\BloodBowl\MatchReport.sqlite
Vista/Windows 7: Documents\BloodBowl\MatchReport.sqlite
I'm probably going to wind up adding some kind of measure to prevent accidental multiple submissions, as this has already been a problem with those who were alpha testing the system. But for now, just be careful, as I don't have the countermeasure in place yet.

So one last time.... Match Reports ARE NOT Replay files.

Managing Your Team

You need to manage your team in the online interface via blood bowl digita.

This includes buying journeymen to fill out your roster if you don't have 11 players able to take the field. You will not be able to download your team until you have filled out your roster.

You can also buy/sell players apothecaries cheerleaders etc. through this interface.

I think this was the rest of the line-up:

Tau Ceti - Lizzies
MOBIUS - Orcs
Beta - Goatboys
Illi - Wood Elves
Shakey - Humans?
New Phil - Goblins?

I just figure that the general population of the Welsh Valleys look and act like Orcs anyway...

They do have a sense of humour though, there's a really good Fish and Chip shop up there called 'A Fish called Rhondda'...

Just been/am a bit busy. Have the team basically sorted – just need to set it up and into the league, er, at some point…

Will remind the other guys, I think ‘New Phil’ is back now.

I should probably drop out.

My apartment will be barely inhabitable for the next couple of weeks due to bathroom reconstruction. I was thinking I might be able to drop by and play the league games occasionally in the evenings, but upon further review of the likely amount of dust and general nuisance, I should probably pack the computer away. It does not seem worth the hassle to start playing now.

Apologies, and I hope it does not create much trouble for you guys.

The construction period is five weeks (starting next week). I will be living elsewhere for at least three weeks, but possibly the whole period. Since I don't know exactly at the moment, I don't want to keep people waiting.

I am going to struggle to find time to play a match until May 3rd.

Working every day until 23rd, and doing stuff most evenings then going to San Francisco. But I will make every effort to find a couple of hours one evening.

Right, Phil's PC needs reformatting and he hasn't got the time to rebuild it, so he's calling off for this season.

Illi is working through uploading as I type this now...

Right, go here to see the match schedule!

Unbelievably I'm starting with MOBIUS and finishing with K_G again! EDIT: that is unbelievable, I'm actually starting against Shakey.

http://bloodbowldigital.com/index.ph...e&leagueId=591

round 1

Code:
X-Rats             -  the tree muggers	
beta's Blockers	   -  Karak-Drak Frostbeards	
Clar Karond Ravens -  Raging Storms
Shakey, can you play on Sunday evening or monday evening? These are pretty much the only times I have available until after May bank holiday.

I was writing them as you were posting that reply.

If anyone things those instructions need improving after playing, or if anything doesn't make sense let me know. Some of the options might not be called exactly what I've labelled them, I was writing it from memory.

Yeah, I immediately realised I might have been a bit dumb there and wanted to change things around when I saw other people's teams - but then I remembered this:
