I’m going to outline the instructions for installing your new software, starting with the ZIP file you download from DKSports.com:
First step is to extract everything within the ZIP file to a ZIP file on your desktop. After unzipping this file, run the SETUP.EXE file which is found within your newly unzipped file.
After you begin running SETUP.EXE, this will walk you through the installation process. (Note: There is a lengthy manual within this unzipped file as well – this will walk you through all of these steps too). After the setup has completed and the game has installed, you’re ready to set up our league within the game. This is where things differ quite a bit from previous versions of the game.
First, go to the TTFBA website and download the latest league disk. SAVE this zip file in the following place:
PARENT DRIVE (Usually the C:\ Drive) –> dksports-data –> football –> seasons
After downloading the disk and saving it at that location, open up the 2010 Action PC Football Software. Navigate to the SETUP menu at the top, and click the “Install Season” button. The next window that pops open should already be in the PARENT DRIVE (Usually the C:\ Drive) –> dksports-data –> football –> seasons folder, but if not, navigate to that folder. Locate the latest league disk that you just downloaded, highlight it on the right side, in the bottom right (where is says “Install to”) I recommend changing the name of the folder you want to install to from the default name of the ZIP file to the name “2010 TTFBA Season”. Therefore, in the bottom right, it should read:
C:\dksports-data\football\seasons\2010 TTFBA Season
After that, click Begin Installation and your current season will install from the ZIP file. After the install, you should have access to all teams within the league. From now on, when there is an updated league disk, you will simply need to unzip that file into the 2010 TTFBA Season folder you just created. Be sure to overwrite all files when prompted to do so.
Season installed! Next, I will create a write up on connecting to your opponent and hosting an internet game.
