Hidden Client Treasure
I saw Mumbojumboist talking about this in chat yesterday, and didn't know about it myself. Maybe few know? Sorry if I'm tugging your coat with info you already have.

Anyway, if you hold shift and right click in the new client, you can mark players or the pitch. Here is an example from my current game:



I've noted my Journeymen, my MA9 WD, my AG5 guy and the problematic Ogres. Just to make the point, I made a couple of pitch markings too.

No idea if you could do this in Ski's client, but I find it very useful indeed to have a visual quick guide rather than having to mouse over players all the time. No more need you miss that Guard guy if you mark him up!

Happy FFBing! If you have any more gems you think others might not have spotted, list away!

had known about this but hadnt seen it, thanks for a great visual, I'm sure I'll make use of it now. thanks.
Posted by Woodstock on 2011-01-20 13:01:39
It is sweet indeed, in ski's client you could mark the field (max 5 places).
Posted by Calcium on 2011-01-20 13:04:24
This is superb
Posted by Calcium on 2011-01-20 13:05:11
Just noticed, that snotling is named after my missus. In fact I think it is my missus.....bitch is playing BB behind my back!

"Married with snotlings", new on HBO this spring
Posted by Purplegoo on 2011-01-20 13:28:59
I'm also a big fan of being able to load up a game to watch and watch a replay of the story so far, that's ace too.
Posted by maysrill on 2011-01-20 13:53:56
I'd heard about this feature, but never how to use it. I'd tried a couple things to get it to work, given up, and forgotten about it.

Cheers! I'll be marking things all over the place now. (+ST opponents have always been a blind spot of mine)
Posted by Randy_Moss on 2011-01-20 14:24:05
Cal, your missus is HOT!

Thanks for the info, goo. Is heard about the feature, but not heard how to use it.

6 for educational!
Posted by SeraphimRed on 2011-01-20 14:28:21
This is good for me as I've become a lazy BB player and rarely check to see if that indeed is the Orc lino with Diving Tackle.
Posted by DukeTyrion on 2011-01-20 14:43:19
Typical ... I get +MA and PeteW has to outdo me with +Str :-P
Posted by Lakrillo on 2011-01-20 16:28:49
6 for not reading the help menu where all these kind of commands are listed!
Posted by WhatBall on 2011-01-20 16:38:40
I liked when spectators could see the home team's annotations. Had fun adding some odd ones. :) It is indeed an awesome feature.
Posted by WhatBall on 2011-01-20 16:42:23
Goo, the WIL logo on the field needs to be inverted and then make the black transparent. It looks like crap like that. :P

I'll do it for you if you want. :D
Posted by Macavity on 2011-01-20 16:57:11
Rated six for the confusion caused realizing Calcium is married.
Posted by mubo on 2011-01-20 17:38:53
Like a virtual skill ring! It's dead useful, I always forget which gutter runner has wrestle etc. and where the mb/po guy is...

Whatball; feel free to play. My Woodie teams always have that logo... So it would need to be good to replace it! :D
Posted by Russo on 2011-01-20 19:07:26
Excellent, thanks for the blog will try that when I play my first game!!

Sera...that DT Orc lino belongs to pythrr the little git was always tricking me with him :-)

Posted by avien on 2011-01-20 23:50:46
I kinda knew it, but I'd forgotten, so thanks for the reminder =)
Posted by Randy_Moss on 2011-01-21 02:39:10
