#139 Punt Returner dead...

Posted by PHILLEYOPHISH on 03 November 2014 - 04:32 AM

Sometimes, when my punt returner catches the call, the controls don't work, like I can't move him at all.

This has happened using a controller and also with the keyboard.

I have found that holding the up direction button while the kicker is kicking until your PR gets the ball fixes this issue.

If I hold the up button, it won't do it.  But if I just don't touch anything and let the punter punt to my PR and I finally press a button when I get the ball, sometimes, he's dead and I cannot move him at all.  This has happened to me at least 4+ times during 10 games.

So far so good. I will get a much better idea of things once we can watch the gameplay but I like what I'm seeing so far. Nice work guys !!!

#295 Free Agency...

Posted by David Dods on 22 March 2016 - 07:16 AM

To Dave Murray, thank you for adding more balance to the free agents!  Lots of choices at positions that used to be very hard to find, you are the best.  Thanks, Dave

#294 Free Agency...

Posted by David Dods on 19 March 2016 - 10:48 PM

I enjoy the game very much, would it be possible to add two things to make the game even better: a draft at the end of the season, to bring in younger players that can be developed through training.  Better balance of free agents, way too many kickers, punters and kick returners and punt returners, not enough offensive linemen, quarterbacks, wide receivers, and running backs.  thanks

Hey James!


Thanks for the suggestions. I just added a bunch more FAs let me know if you can grab what you need.


As for punts, is this something you see often?

#206 Game Will Not Load!

Posted by gwarth on 23 November 2014 - 05:40 AM

Hello Everyone! First time posting!


This morning I started playing Gridiron Heroes when I realized it was finally out!


I paid the 5 dollars to get some in game cash to unlock manual mode and help support and then started playing my first game of the season and WON!


Now after that game I'm stuck! When I click PLAY and go to play the next game of the GH season, It goes to the selection screen

where you choose either MAN/COACH or AUTO but after it says its initializing it stays as a black screen and just will not load!


My computer specs are:


Windows 7 Ultimate 

Intel Core i5 3570k


RADEON HD 7870 graphics card.



I've tried almost everything including:


Updating my graphics card drivers and making sure I have the most current drivers for DirectX 9c and 11.

Clearing my Unity webplayer cache.

Uninstalling and Re-Installing Unity webplayer.

Rebooting the computer.

Testing the Unity Webplayer demos on their website (all of the ones I tried work just fine!)

Trying the different Unity webplayer release channels which includes the Beta/Stable and Release.

Making sure cookies were enabled of course.

Trying GH in both Chrome and Firefox including fresh installs for both and making sure the cache was even clear.

Making sure any and ALL background programs and ANY plugins for browsers were disabled and off.

Letting the game try to load for upwards of 15 - 30  minutes.

Trying the other game modes of COACH and AUTO.

Making sure the "training" wasn't interfering by waiting for that finish and trying the game.

Refreshing a LOT!



I don't know what else to do! I love this game and it teased me by letting me play one full game and now it doesn't want to load at all! Lol  :wacko:


Thank you Dave for making an awesome game I really want to play a lot!


- Jered

#204 Music: What are you listening to?

Posted by ComptonEMT on 20 November 2014 - 06:00 PM

Well... mainly these days I listen to Creative Commons music as I run a creative commons shoutcast that streamers can use as background music. As such I'm always looking for new bands. Lately I found a good one from Russia named "Other Noises" ... the song i'm really digging on for them was Tell Me Why from their newest album S.L.A.S.H.


Listen on Soundcloud.com

#174 World Ranking...How does it work?

Posted by White Ford Broncos on 08 November 2014 - 12:18 AM

My next win put me over and above that dude, but I would imagine a team that is 8-0 should be better than a team that is 7-5 right?????

He gets ranked higher because he has played more games?

From what I see, everyone is ranked by "Gridiron Points"
You get 1 point for every game played.  For every win, you get 2 additional points.

Currently I'm ranked #7 at 26-0.
I have 78 Gridiron Points.
26(wins) x 2 = 52
52 + 26(games played) = 78

At #6, Bubby Busters is 32-3 with 99 Gridiron Points.
32 x  2 = 64 
64 + 35 = 99

#170 Nerf Punt Returners

Posted by ComptonEMT on 07 November 2014 - 04:31 PM

while you're at it take a look at  kickoff as well as turnover. I've many a time taken a turnover to the house while running a 2.5 second 40 yard dash after obtaining the ball.  I think one of them was a 90+ yard JJ return where i flew across the field with such quickness that I just ran down the sideline and didn't even zigzag. Well... maybe I had a zig but there was no zag. 



lets just say the players run faster than bo jackson (maybe twice as fast) on TSB juice when you're 15-0 on the season.

#162 Feature Requests

Posted by ComptonEMT on 06 November 2014 - 08:17 AM

My I suggest to put a quick stat view on the main roster page? very similar to how you have training slide out. Just their main stat such as receiving, passing, rushing, defense, returns. Totals would be find for that. all you would have to do is click on their bar. unimportant UI stuff that is very important to the polish of the game =)

#150 Setup Controller/Gamepad - PC

Posted by ComptonEMT on 04 November 2014 - 03:41 AM

For those of you with a RetroLink USB NES Controller (occasionally you can find them for about 7 bucks) you might find that xpadder and JoyToKey don't recognize your controller. Without those programs recognizing the controller itself it can not receive input from them. In this case I use a little program called JoystickCursor from the nice people over at DeinMeister Digital Delusions. JoystickCursor doesn't register the device but registers HID input specifically.


Download here: Attached File  joycur.zip   38.33K   1 downloads


To set up JoystickCursor just download the zip and unpack it to a folder on your computer.




Once you have it extracted and double click the executable you might just be sitting there wondering where it was. You might even try to open it again to no avail. This is because it only opens on load into the background. To find it go to your windows bar and you'll find it. Go ahead and right click and select "Setup Dialog"




Once in the setup dialog screen you'll see a screen with tons of checkboxes on it. If you press down on your controller you'll see that one of the top checkboxes lights up. You'll notice in the first image that it's not lit and in the second image the L is lit because I'm holding down the L position of the d-pad. AMAZING!!!!





Simply go through all of your buttons and map them using the press and select technique. Once you're done your setup should look a little something like the next image. Click OK and you should be good to go!. ENJOY!

#137 Game Freeze, then Speeds???

Posted by PHILLEYOPHISH on 03 November 2014 - 04:27 AM

Thanks for reporting this stuff. The inside the red zone bug is something we're aware of and are looking into. (see http://s.pixelrampag...known-bug-list/)


Now, the speed thing. That is interesting. Do you recall who you were playing against? I can try to pull of the gamestate and look it over.


The speed thing

I think it was game 8, against the Bruins...

#118 WR arrow frozen when playing from right side

Posted by Neerrm on 02 November 2014 - 09:41 PM

About midway through the game, my WR indicator is graphically stuck in the same spot:









Seems like I can still cycle through receivers though with S and it'll change the target, the indicator is just stuck.

#115 MAN loses control in certain situations, can softlock

Posted by Neerrm on 02 November 2014 - 06:13 PM

To recap: AI opponent calls a time-out, then punts and then you are unable to move? After the dead punt, you have no controls at all.


Where you one the left or right side?


Chrome version?



(Also, thanks for submitting stuff it really helps.)

PC, Chrome, left side. The first time it happened, I had controls after the play ended (when the play select screen came up) so it wasn't a big deal. The second time it was halftime so it was a big deal.



Also, which team were you playing against? I'll try to dig into the gamestate.


Miami Buccaneers, it'd be like the third time I've tried a game against them (two were interrupted by other things and I ended up closing out mid-game)

#105 Troubles with Unity Webplayer?

Posted by Neerrm on 02 November 2014 - 12:36 AM

I'm having issues with giving it the permission to run. Normally, I'd get a pop-up box or something and that would allow me to give it permission...but not here.




EDIT: Nevermind, I'm dumb. Right click, run this plug-in.
