HARDBALL III STATMan Utility v0.5

===========================================================================

Greetings fellow Hardballers! Let me introduce myself. My name is Jeff
Rudokas. I have been a C++ programmer for a few years now. This is a point in
my life where all I can do is wish I had money to afford to return to college.
I've got a full time job that has almost nothing to do with computers; so I
spend a lot of time trying to find a program to write just to keep my logic
and programming skills sharp!

I've owned HardBall III since roughly the time that it came out. I also have
the MLBPA disk and the Stadiums disk. What I don't have is some utility that
can take HardBall III into the statistical dimension of baseball. So, I tried
to write one.

My first inclination to write this program was to develop a utility that
would import logos from other *.LGD files. I am no artist, but I know that
some people are. It'd be a great deal of fun to see the KC logo as George
Brett steps into the batters box. With this utility, I hope some people will
release their LGD file with all of their logos on it!

SO, while I was in the process of deciphering the *.LGD file in HardBall III,
I decided HEY! This program needs a better way to show stats than those silly
baseball cards!


I began this program about 2 months ago... juggling it between work and a
social life. Here are the goals I had in mind:

- LOGO IMPORTING
- TEAM STATISTIC SCREENS
- LEAGUE LEADERS
- SCHEDULING UTILITIES
- EASIER TRADING


NOW, What you have here in v0.5 are the first three goals.... to an extent.
I plan to take the Team Stats screens a little further - such as an easier
lineup changer, and pitcher rotations. The other two will take a while to
develop... maybe a month or so.

This release is also so people will give me feedback on likes, dislikes, and
problems. So help yourself to future HBIII STATMans by helping me!


THIS UTILITY IS FREEWARE!

HOWEVER, FUTURE VERSIONS ARE SHAREWARE!!!

If you want to get v1.0, and free updates to that, stick around until the end
of this file.


===========================================================================

RUNNING HBSTAT.EXE

===========================================================================

To start the program, all you have to do is copy it to the directory that
your HARDBALL III game is located, then:

type "HBSTAT"

This will load the DEFAULT.LGD file in the HardBall III directory. If there
is no file by that name, the program will tell you.

TO LOAD A DIFFERENT LEAGUE: You can type HBSTAT followed by the name of the
of the LGD file that you wish to load.
To load the MLBPA file, type "HBSTAT MLBPA"

===========================================================================


TEAM STATS ----------------------------------------------------------------

To see a Teams statistics, use your cursor keys to move the YELLOW BOX over
the name of the team you wish to examine. Then press F1.


LEAGUE LEADERS -----------------------------------------------------------

From the standings screen, press F2. This will take you to a sorted display
of the Leagues' Batting Avreage leaders. Position the YELLOW BOX over any
stat category you wish to see sorted. Pitcher stats can be accessed by
hitting enter over the word PITCHER.

This displays the top 17 players of the selected stat category.

To exit this screen, hit Escape.


LOGO IMPORTING ---------------------------------------------------------

To import a logo, you need to be at the standings screen. Position the YELLOW
BOX over the team that you wish to import a logo for. Press F3. This will
search your directory for other HardBall III LGD files. Press the number
beside the File you wish to get the logo from.

MAKE SURE YOU'VE GOT A BACKUP OF THE LOGO YOU ARE ABOUT TO REPLACE IF YOU
EVER WANT TO USE IT AGAIN!!!

Use the Left and Right arrow keys to find the logo in the team file. Once it
is displayed, hit F5. This is now saved in your active LGD file.


===========================================================================

PLEASE! PAY ATTENTION TO WHAT IS ON THE SCREEN! Every option is displayed on
the screen!

===========================================================================


THATS ALL FOR THIS VERSION!

WAIT FOR v1.0 to be released in April... or be the first to reserve it!

TO GET v1.0, send $5.00 (or more!) as a shareware donation to the author
