Q: I purchased an earlier version of
TMsg Basketball and want to upgrade to TMsg Basketball ? How can I
obtain the current vertsion /product.
A: The full version is FREE on the DOWNLOADS page.
Q: Are my old team files compatible with TMsg Basketball?
A: Maybe. TMsg 11.0 introduced a new team file structure. Old files only work with versions before 11.0 , so older TMsg software versions must remain on your computer if you want to play with the older cards.
Q: Is TMsg that much better than
A: Easily. The update is free. After playing TMsg you will not want to go back to your previous version unless you have started a project with TMsg Basketball version before 11.0 . It should be noted here that TMsg will not disrupt the current install of TMsg 2010c or any other earlier installation. It installs as a completely new program. You can host all versions on the same computer at the same time. If you have older card sets and seasons, be sure to keep a copy of it.
Q: Are my player cards still good?
A: Many took advantage of the free update period, which, as previously mentioned, has expired. Card sets featuring a "Floor 2" row will work with version 11.0 and beyond. Since later team files have expanded rosters with mult-card players, some of these cards will not match up perfectly with the new team files and there may be slight variations between the cards and the on screen prompt in the software. TMsg cards have a different style than TMsg cards but there is no changes to the card ratings and stats.
