College BBALL Coach Updated to Version 1.2.05!

DATABASES ARE STUPID!

Well, we're excited to say that we have identified the MAJOR cause of some of the strange schedule, player and game sim issues that some people have been having and it's related to the database platform that the game uses to store (and update) most of the data it needs. Turns out that this database platform has some undocumented MAJOR inconsistencies when writing/updating large amounts of data on mobile devices and, gee - updating 3,490+ players, teams and schedules is a prime example of 'large' amounts of data! This issue has been driving us NUTS, to say the least! That said, we have been working diligently to ensure that the game handles this frustrating deficiency appropriately and all seems much better now. We'll continue to monitor this platform and address any other workarounds as necessary, but you should find a LOT more consistency now!

Reputation increases! Yes, you asked for it and now if you have a few successful seasons with a team, you just might find your team has been awarded a reputation increase! And they say hard work doesn't pay off!

You can now see the reputation (stars) rating for each team at the top of their roster screen.

Extra roster validation check (beyond the fixes mentioned above) at the beginning of each season.

Small tweaks to recruiting logic.

Addressed mRand error that a few people have been getting during recruiting.

Minor tweak to ZPI and team ranking calculations.

Update should be live on all app stores shortly:

College BBALL Coach Updated to Version 1.2.00!

HUGE UPDATE, WITH MANY NEW FEATURES!

Added the Zolnier Performance Index (ZPI), which is a measure of a team's performance throughout the season. It is based on a combination of a team's home and away wins and losses, their opponents' & opponents-opponents' wins and losses and their wins against ranked teams. A team's rank, their ZPI and the overall strength of their schedule (SoS) are now major factors in a team getting invited to the National Championship Tournament. ZPI is available after week 10.

After week 10, you can now see the ZPI Rank, SoS Rank and National Tournament prediction (IN/OUT) for each team, when viewing their roster in the Teams and Players screen.

Added HALL OF FAME and the ability to retire! Check out the round Hall of Fame button on the bottom of the Title screen!

You can now name your coach! A coach who has no name needs an identity! (Get the reference? Sometimes I think I'm funny...)

You can also edit your coach's name at any time in the Settings screen for each season.

Tweaks to the My Career screen. Added 'Retire this Coach' button.

Added What's New summary screen, which you can see any time via the 'Whats New' button on the bottom of the Title screen.

Small tweaks and error checks to recruiting logic.

You can now see exactly how many recruiting points have been allocated from each team in the View Recruit screen. This should help in determining how many recruiting points separate the various schools.

You can now view the list of players a team is recruiting right in their team roster screen.

Increased font size in tournament brackets as well as various button sizes

Tweaks to difficulty in free throw practice drill

Added ZPI rankings list to the Polls & Standings section

Misc bug fixes, including My Career and Play Tournament screens.

Tweaks to Main Menu screen layout.
