  1. that is great stuff. Haven’t play APBA since mid 70’s, when my geek friend created a computer program called ACCY STAT to collect game stats and print outs of our face to face games. We created score sheets and primitive systems to get him the info. I guess he would go back to his computer class and enter everything in and bring back the results. Unfortunately, the game, the cards, the boards the stat books and all were all given away many years ago when we were cleaning out the garage, We have a great time for several years before and after ACCYSTAT was created. Really impressed with your program. I’m sure it was a labor of love, but nonetheless, a ton of work. Have been reading about APBA lately and Oguard62 brought me to this blog.

  2. Hey Joel, nice to hear the stories of people enjoy APBA, sounds like that was a lot of work indeed! Oguards site is awesome and full of great information. Tom Milne is the creator of PFH, wish i could take credit for it, he did such an great job with it.

  3. I must be missing something with regards to penalty yardage in using the Pro Football Helper software. How does one input more than 5 yards for a penalty….I do not see how to enter any other yardage than the default 5 yards.

  4. Jack,

    There is a slider bar next to the numbers you see when your inputting a penalty, slide it down to the the desired yardage and then click the amount of yardage + or – you are looking for and it will be inputted into the penalty yardage box.

  5. I uploaded the latest update. The schedule feature is a great innovation. Question, I was able to select game from schedule, but i had already played 4 games which show up in standings and stats etc, but it did not populate the schedule meaning it didn’t show the games were played or results. No big deal, but just wondering. I haven’t finished a game in 5.0 don’t know if that makes a difference. Thanks again for all you do for the APBAers.

    1. Jeff,

      You would have to manually enter the games played prior to using the new schedule feature. Its pretty easy to do, just locate the schedule file in the replay folder and type in those games and save it. Had to do this for all of my previous games for the 66 season, took only a few minutes. The schedule feature that Tom added is really nice addition to help speed up replays!

      1. I agree. really helpful feature So the format would be at the end of each line #,# .

        Examples: I would add last two numbers
        Week 1,Sunday,September 15,1974,Miami Dolphins,at,New England Patriots,N,- 17,21
        Week 1,Sunday,September 15,1974,Washington Redskins,at,New York Giants,N,-24,21
