Release 0.8.9

Hello Everybody,

After a very long period mostly due to a very busy work schedule, we are finally ready with the release of version 0.8.9.

In this version we have done some update for the GUI, changes to the tactics view and a number of minor updates.


On the GUI side we have decided to remove the side menu to make more space for the content. Instead the menu has been placed in the top bar.

We hope that this works for everybody and that it is easy enough to locate the sub menus which have been placed to the right of the screen. 


For the tactics we have both updated the GUI for creating new formations and plays and made some changes for what is possible to change for a play.

One of those changes is that it is possible to set a specific action for a player. Not all actions are possible for all player types for all play types. Like a Center can't be a main target.

Offensive Actions

  • Ball Carrier:  Will carry the ball on run plays
  • Pull Left: Will make a pull to the left on run plays
  • Pull Right: Will make a pull to the right on run plays
  • Run Block: Will try to block on a run play
  • Pass Block: Will try to block on a pass play
  • Main Target: Set as main target on passing plays
  • Run-Pass Option: The quarterback can either pass the ball, carrier the ball or hand it over to the running back

Defensive Actions

  • Blitz: Will blitz the quarterback
  • Zone Coverage: Is zone coveraging
  • Man Coverage: Is man coveraging
  • Quarterback Spy: Will spy the quarterback if he runs with the ball

For the next versions we hope to improve this even further with new formations and plays and more actions.
