About This File

'88, Hot War 

A continuation of the Age of Vinny narrative and hacks. The Narrative is available in the read-me. 


Labor issues have been resolved partially through a "Plan B" system in the face of pressure from a reconstituted USFL and, potentially, a new league in the Soviet Union as their "reconstruction" barrels down on U.S. Hegemony. The Cardinals have survived a relocation bid to Phoenix, after St. Louis' revolutionary council exerts control, making the club a public utility, possibly tying them to the plastic and concrete surface of Busch Stadium forever. Dan Fouts and Walter Payton, through new medical techniques, come out of brief retirements to chase that ring with San Fran and Chicago. Can the Browns three-peat? Can Vinny and Eric Dickerson breakthrough? Can Doug Williams deliver for the Raiders? Neil Lomax for Big Red?


Hacks are built on roms in 1970-1994 pack and USFL-WAFL hack. 



*7 minute quarters

*Wedge Formation on Kick Returns

*Locked schedule

*Stats after every quarter 

*2nd uniform edits 

*More USFL Players

*1988 Re-draft 

*Fouts signs with 49ers; Payton signs with Saints, other additions, both imagined and "what if?" (check out the narrative)  

*Back in the league: Gabriel Rivera 

*Back from the dead: Joe Delaney, David Overstreet

*Saved States for .fcs based on narrative season

*Results from narrative season (file is huge! watch out)

I have a blog with narrative chunks up (http://ageofvinny.blogspot.com), though it has been very difficult finding time to throw narrative pieces up. They are all here, though, in the read.me. Twitter: @Tombor13 to follow along for week by week results.
