2016 Features and Enhancements
Redesigned Opening Screen: Choose from display options that include combinations of player statistics, team leaders, and much more! All opening screen displays are automatically linked to the appropriate, player, team, or box score!
The Player Form has been expanded in both functionality and appearance! All statistics are on one page for easy access. Ratings are displayed in one convenient and easy to read display box. A player injury history report has been added to the game logs tab. This report lists every injury that occurred for the player during the season. A new history tab links into your encyclopedia to display complete career league and replay stats! The powerful new usage tab allows you to customize playing time based on specific game situations.
New Revised and Expanded Injury System: Multi-game injuries more closely mimic real life roster usage and are more realistically and randomly spread throughout the season. If you have built a roster with proper depth you will find yourself less likely to use players out of position.
New Fatigue System: Similar to our basketball and hockey games, we've added a 100 point meter system to help monitor fatigue level and rest players as needed. The fatigue meter is especially useful for rotating defensive linemen and skill position players. The new player usage settings can automate player rotation to both lessen fatigue issues and put players on the field in game situations that best meet their talents. The game system will automatically pull and replace players from the lineups based on your settings!
New Programmable Coach Options include additional defensive formation overrides, coverage options, and more.
Improved Past Season Replay Results: Adjustments to past seasons play calling and player usage create an even better replay experience! We’ve even added rule settings that allow you to define which offensive and defensive formations are allowable.
The New Game Screen Scouting Report offers a snapshot view of your opponents play calling for the current game situation.
New Player Photo Assignment Tool highlights the current photo selection and includes a list of suggested possible photos for each player. This new tool makes assigning photos a snap even if you have 50,000 photos in your collection!
Expanded Encyclopedia Function includes new tools for editing and maintaining your encyclopedias. Even more exciting, the game links the encyclopedia data to your player form for easy viewing of real and replay stats! If you have already built replay or draft encyclopedias, the data automatically appears the first time you view a player. No extra bookwork is required!
New Injury History Report lists all injuries that have occurred during the season including multi-game, one game, partial game, and temporary injuries. View this report for a specific player, a team, or the entire league!
Colleges, heights, and weights are included for all players in the 2015 season.

Action! PC Football
Action! PC Football is the most comprehensive stat-based football game on the market. Action! PC Football is designed to challenge your mind and not your fingers. Play results are determined by lineups, play calls and strategy rather than joystick skill and dice rolls. You’re the coach with hundreds of strategy options available! In Action! PC Football, players are rated using every available published statistic as well as expert subjective analysis. Each player performs as he did in real life with amazing statistical accuracy. Action! PC Football also includes extensive player, team, and league statistical reports.
Play games head-to-head, over the internet, or against the computer. Relive past seasons as the coach of your favorite team; draft teams and play games in a league; let the computer manage all of the teams and watch the results; or set your coaching preferences for a specific team and let the computer play a season with your coaching profile. Any way you play, you’ll love the statistical accuracy and strategy Action! PC Football brings to your home computer.
Action! PC Football is a detailed, comprehensive, and challenging football simulation game, yet is so simple to play you may never need to refer to the manual.
To call a play, the offensive coach simply clicks on the name of the play such as "sweep left" or “short slant”, and then clicks the ball carrier or primary receiver. Plays may also be called by first clicking on the ball carrier or intended receiver, and then choosing from a list of available plays for that player. In addition to having more than 40 basic plays to choose from, the offensive coach also has the option of toggling between one of 12 pre-saved platoons (2 tight ends, 4 wide receivers, full house backfield or any combination possible). The offense also has a list of options that can further enhance the play. These options include shotgun, roll-out, play action, run counter, head out of bounds, and many others. You can even read the defense and call audibles at the line of scrimmage!
Defensive play calling is flexible and customizable. The defensive coach selects one of 16 platoons (4-3, 3-4, nickel, dime, etc. ), and calls a defensive play (basic, run defense, pass defense, prevent, or goal line defense). On any play, a coach can also set pass coverage style and depth, aggressiveness, defensive line play, run keys, double coverages, blitzers and many other options. The defense can even use deception tactics such as showing or disguising a blitz in order to protect against audibles, or to lure the offense into bad audibles.
Once both offensive and defensive plays have been called, the computer generates both a play result and a radio style play-by-play description. Every factor that affects real life results is built into the game formulas. On any given play, these include player ratings and statistics, strategies and play calls, field position, wind and weather, home field advantage, and player fatigue; just to name a few! Penalties, injuries, and replay challenges all occur with realistic frequency.
On special teams, choose kick off deep, kick away from the primary kick returner, squib kick, or onside kick. On punts, choose to punt deep, angle the punt, pooch punt, or fake. The return team may try to block the punt, return the punt, call for a fair catch, let the punt roll, or guard against fakes.
With our video chalkboard, you have the option of watching your play results with ball movement as well as complete offensive and defensive player movement!
Action! PC sports games have long been the leaders in internet play. In a few simple steps, you can connect for a single game or an entire series against any other Action! PC Football game owner—no third party software is needed! Players connect using their IP address. The game plays quickly—just like playing in the same room. After a game, click one button to send the game headline and box score to every member of your league. Click another button to send the game’s data file to the league statistician. You can even create a league address book and league website with just a few mouse clicks!
Statistics and Reports
At the heart of the Action! PC Football game engine is a very powerful stats compiler. We offer all the well known published stats as well as a host of unique statistical categories such as receiver rac, drops, bad passes, player rushing and receiving, first downs, stuffs, hurries, deflections and many more. We offer a host reports covering boxscores, play by play, big games, salary cap, injuries, team comparison, league leaders, records, team tendencies, encyclopedia, team analysis reports and much more.
Action! PC Football contains a wealth of varied and suspenseful play-by-play results. Millions of possible play-by-play descriptions are built into the game but if you would like to add your own descriptions an editor is included that allows you to edit up to 4000 lines of text. A simple "quick slant" could look something like this:

You decide if you'd like to challenge the ruling on the field based on the game situation and the overrule success percentage displayed on the screen. Many challenge situations are included: fumbles, down-by-contact rulings, spot of the ball on first downs and touchdowns, and many more.
Action! PC Football makes use of every published statistic as well as subjective ratings and specialty statistics to accurately portray each player. For example:
· Rushing: Based on attempts, yards, average, long runs, touchdowns, fumble frequency, breakaway ability, short yardage ability, rushing style and durability.
· Receiving: Based on catches, drops, yards, average, long catches, touchdowns, fumble frequency, run after catch and durability.
· Passing: Based on completions, interceptions, touchdowns, pass rating, yardage, times sacked, scrambling, bad passes, durability, ability under pressure and audible ability.
· Blocking: Run and pass block ratings are given to each player.
· Defense: Defensive players are rated for pass rush, run defense, and pass defense, as well as tackles, forced fumbles, interceptions, stuffs, deflections, hurries and durability.
