0 comments by TheBlueAssasin on Jul 31st, 2013

There is a new version of Hoops Manager available for download which features and interesting mini game add-on to it.

If you download the latest version of Hoops Manager you will get the H-O-R-S-E mini game as well. The game is a popular basketball shooting game and is now available on your computer too. You can check what this game is on this link.

H-O-R-S-E features 3D graphics, a unique shooting control which resembles real-life shooting of a basketball, and several game modes.

Game Modes:

  • Practice - Pretty much self explanatory;
  • Single Player - Play against the computer. There are four different difficulty levels.
  • Two Players - Hot-Seat mode. Play with a friend on the same computer
  • Play Online - play against others online through www.hoopsmanager.net. This service is still in development and is not tested sufficiently, so please excuse any issues. I'd suggest that you try a few times before giving up while trying to play with someone :)

I hope you enjoy this addition and I'd appreciate any feedback. Other fixes in this patch include a minor adjustment in the lightning in Hoops Manager, and a very important fix for the game.

Fixed Error which didn't allow you to Save Games on Hoops Manager when playing from Desura! You just need to allow write_permission.exe to run the first time you run your game, and that's it!

In the near future I plan to include a multiplayer mode for Hoops Manager as well. You would be able to get the team that you have built in single player mode and play against friends with it online. Since it is August, I don't think that I will be able to finish that until the middle of September, but if you have any suggestions or ideas for how to make that more interesting, I'd like to know.

OK. So - the next patch will remove the registration from the website, if you play through Desura. However, you need to give MODIFY permissions to the game folder (usually Desura/Common/Hoops Manager) to be able to save your games. Do this by right-clicking on the Hoops Manager folder, go to Security, then click on your User, and click Modify.

If you use the Stand-Alone download you will not have this problem.

If you downloaded the game yesterday as a standalone and got an Invalid Password error - please login IN THE WEBSITE again. It should ask you to retype your password, and you should be able to play the game after that. If it doesn't work, leave me a message here or somewhere on the game's website and I'll fix it.

I will fix the Desura download later today or tomorrow, when I have time!

I know this whole registration/login is a bit frustrating, but I put some work into the game, and I just want to know how many people play it, there is no other reason for that. And it also gives you a high score list, an opportunity to play the game from anywhere (because your saved games are stored online), so it's not that bad, once I make it work... :D

I found the issue with Desura, I will work on a patch and release it ASAP. :) If it gives you an invalid handle error - please go to the game folder and edit file permissions - allow MODIFY for Creator Owner and User.

Adding /download to the web address will usually get you direct links on Desura. Don't ask me why this feature is hidden.

It's also not even letting me connect even after allowing ftp.exe through the firewall.
