Deck the halls with 'bouts' of bargains!

Hope you're well and feeling 'Christmassy' by now, if not you should be, because it is truly upon us once again!

In a rare display of generosity I have decided to slash the cost of the game for a limited time. A copy now costs £6.50 or $13.00 approximately.
How limited is this time? Good question. Probably not long at all, so if you haven't already, grab a copy whilst the going's good.
Feel free to share the news and spread a little Christmas cheer around!

Finally, thank you all again for your continued support and I look forward to updating you with a new version in the near future. If I don't catch your attention again soon, please have a great Christmas and a Happy New Year.

As always, keep the faith and Box On!

All work and no play...

...make me very dull and unblog-worthy indeed!

Sorry for the lack of Boxing Manager updates. Work is keeping me very busy.
Every now and then I catch a glimpse at the now completed list of development notes and feel the urge to get cracking. Alas, work keeps dragging me back to my desk and another pile of papers arrives to bury them once more.

All is not lost.
The new version of Boxing Manager is always rattling around my head and recent changes to my workflow mean I am getting closer to being able to devote my time to it once more.

Keep the faith and, as always...Box On!

Help'a La Vista Baby!

Hi All,
Hope you are well.

Just got a new laptop with shiny new Vista Home Edition installed, cool...or not as the case may be! Had some serious issues which are hopefully solved now.

During testing I encountered an error installing 'Boxing Manager Professional Edition'. A quick net research proved this to be a common Vista problem regarding installation of OCX files.

The official line on the website is:
Strange bug encountered on Vista Home Edition displaying file not registered, invalid or missing message.
Goto Windows/System32 folder & rename 'nslock15vb5.ocx’ file.
Reinstall BMProSetup.exe and Voila, Fixed!

Hope this helps any of you that have recently come across this prob.

Box on!

Sad Day for Boxing

Former two-weight world champion Diego Corrales died on Monday in a Las Vegas motorcycle accident, exactly two years since his finest moment in the ring.
The 29-year-old Californian will be remembered for his epic win against super-featherweight and lightweight champion Jose Luis Castillo.

Corrales dragged himself off the canvas to force a thrilling stoppage victory, but lost the rematch.

His final record was 40 wins (33 knockouts) and five defeats.

Tributes have been pouring in over the
BBC 606 message service. Why not leave your lasting thoughts about Diego there or on your friendly local boxing forum.

A true Warrior. RIP Chico.

Rewarding Experience

Hi All,
Thanks for reading. Hope you are well.
Been a while since my last post so thought I'd better do one.

Firstly, thanks to all the websites that have showered Boxing Manager with 5/5 awards since the new version was released. 23 so far. Much Appreciated. Also very proud of the 'Clean & Safe' verifications.

Secondly, some exciting developments are afoot. Unable to go into too much detail but I've hooked up with some very talented people recently. You can rest assured the game will be (quite literally) taken to another dimension in the near future. Watch this space.

Lastly, thanks to all that have been in touch in the first 3 months of the new games life. Hope you are enjoying the experience and if there's anything you would like to share then please let me know.

Box on!

The 'God Of Games' hates me!


After a very successful trial period with the Beta testers the game has been release to the masses for 'field testing' and...

BOOM! I get hit with a serious quantity of support requests. Not good.

Finally got to the bottom of the main program issue. A couple of file references were missing. One of those 'If this box isn't ticked the world stops' scenarios!

Game is now stable. Famous last words perhaps but there they are!

To all the players that endevoured to try, try again and helped me to solve the issues...I thank you.
