Printing play names

I'd like to see the ability to print the play names in a playbook. Just as a list of the names of the offensive, defensive and special teams plays.

Re: Printing play names

RA,

This would certainly be a nice addition to the tools available in Playmaker Football.

There's at least one third-party utility written for the PMFB that will do that for you - Yuji Sakai's AI Browser. It's been around for a long time. In fact, it's an old Mac only application from the mid-'90s, which means it runs in Classic only nowadays (or, Mac OS7-9 if you're running an old operating system).

The program offers a visual check of play-by-play AI (though unlike AI Governor, it doesn't allow you to change anything) and will also export a list of all plays in a book. Offensive plays are prefixed with >, while defensive plays are prefixed with <.

Sadly, I'm no longer able to find any active web sites anymore for either the Japan Football League or the Midnight Football League, where I initially found this program (and Sakai's equally useful RosterMaker application). They were distributed free by Sakai, so I suppose I could e-mail them to anyone who is interested.

Re: Printing play names

I remember that program! Could you send me a copy of it? My yahoo address is coachdread01-wfl. I don't think I've got a copy laying around anywhere since switching to OSX a couple of years ago. Still, I'd love to see the ability to do it directly from PMFB, to include the Windows community as well (and make it easier for me).

Brian, yes, the way you demonstrated above is exacty what I'm looking for. Or even something under the offensive or defensive menus to allow you to just print one or the other...
