2014 Action! PC Basketball 

The 2014 edition includes 24 pro championship teams of the past, and the top 20 college basketball teams from 2013-14. The deluxe edition also includes the complete 2013-14 Pro Basketball season.

New Features in the 2014 Edition

New Look! The 2014 edition makes extensive use of team logos, colors, and player photos (not included).  When a photo has not been assigned to a player, a position appropriate silhouette is displayed. Player photos are now easier to add than ever before. Simply click the photo or silhouette from the player form and browse for a new photo.

Redesigned Opening Screen: The opening screen now features optional team logos and player photos!

New Box Score! The box score display has been completely redesigned for a cleaner, more colorful and attractive appearance with an easy to navigate button and scroll system.

New Press Box Narrator! Action! PC Basketball now offers the option to use the Microsoft Narrator already on your computer to narrate starting lineups, lineup changes, quarter scores, scoring, fouls and more! We’ve even included a handy translation editor so you can customize player or team name pronunciations in seconds.

College and Years of Service information is now included for most players and is viewable from the roster and player screens. This information is also used in starting lineup announcements and some play-by-play descriptions. Note: This new data is automatically added to the past seasons you already own!

New Man Defensive Ratings And Strategy: We’ve redesigned individual player defensive ratings to include a man defense rating for both outside and inside play. A portion of both ratings for all five defensive players are used on every play depending on where they are located on the court during the play. The player and roster screens display the outside and inside ratings as well as a helpful weighted overall rating for each position that helps analyze a player’s man defensive ability by position. This weighted average takes into account how often each rating is used based on the player’s position and era. For example, a player from 2013-14 with a primary position of power forward and secondary position of center rated a 3 outside and 7 inside is considered a 5.2 at power forward and 5.8 at center.  A center from 1970-71 who is rated as a 2 outside and 10 inside is considered overall to be a 7.9. The new rating system greatly enhances strategy for both the offensive and defensive coaches!

New On-Screen Defensive Match-up Tab makes it easy to drag and drop customized defensive match-ups on the fly. We’ve also included a coaching option to allow the computer to suggest and set match-ups throughout the game.

New Offensive Rebounding System includes offensive rebound locations (inside, outside or three) and a more realistic breakdown of offensive rebound percentage based on the type of offensive play.

Redesigned Fastbreak System includes a more realistic play result system, higher number of pull-up threes, and fastbreak opportunities more closely tied to the offensive teams shot location.

Expanded Shooting Statistics. Shooting statistics now include breakdowns for offensive rebound shot location (two or  three) as well as  fastbreak shots (two or three).

Expanded Roster Screen Displays include new tabs for offensive ratings, defensive ratings, replay statistics, biographical information, special statistical ratings, game highs and player usage!

Timeout Play Focus options are now available at every time out, jump ball and quarter break!

New Roster Tool for releasing or erasing more than one player at a time.

Expanded injury, fight and ejection results.

All-Time Records have been moved to the main dksports-data\basketball folder for ease of use each year. There will no longer be a need to transfer this file every year.

New option for a league specific player photo folder.

New Court Default Graphics for current pro teams

New option to save data base reports to a CSV file.

Expanded play-by-play package that includes many new lines of text as well as an impressive array of new play results.  We’ve even included the ability to add information for a player’s favorite shot and included favorite shot descriptions for some classics.

New set of 24 Championship Pro Teams included with every game package!
