FPSFP Files from Sierra BBS

Front Page Sports Football Pro file repository

Hello. This page holds a number of files which may be of use to players of Sierra's "Front Page Sports Football Pro." The first set of files are from the now-defunct Sierra BBS, the second set are files which I have created over the years, or converted from other sites. I hope you find them helpful and fun!

Files from Sierra BBS
Most of these files are for FPSFP '95, though some of them will work with other versions; if using '96 or above, try using the conversion programs which Sierra provided with the game...see your manual for more details. These files are presented "as-is", and I can't vouch for their reliability. The descriptions are the ones originally given by the authors when they uploaded them to the BBS.

Personal FPSFP files

For FBPro '94

MYPLAYSO.ZIP A collection of offensive plays I designed or implemented for FPSFP. Lots of single-wing plays.
MYPLAYSD.ZIP A collection of defensive plays I designed or implemented for FPSFP.
HISTUSFL.ZIP 28k A collection of historical and USFL teams I constructed, put together in one league. Warning: team "Telford-X" in the Eastern-Historical league is meant as a 'all-world' team, and is *extremely* tough.

For FBPro '95

Here are a number of historical leagues and updated rosters. All of these were originally created for FBPro '96 or higher, but using Jeff Plaff's LGERETRO utility, I have retrofitted them for use with FBPro '95. Unfortunately, LGERETRO does not allow retrofitting for leagues with more than 28 teams, so I had to remove a couple of teams from each of the updated rosters. However, I've been careful to stagger which teams were removed, so that no team is gone for consecutive years, making it easier to recreate a team for a given year if so needed. All leagues are used with permission of their original creators.

From FBPro '96: NFL 1995

Personal files: HISTUSFL.ZIP As per above, redone for FBPro '95. I went back to some old USFL tapes I had and redid the team colors to try to get them as accurate as I could. Added Philadelphia '74 ("Fire High Gang") to historical teams; other teams not found elsewhere include San Diego '73 (Unitas' final season), New York '81 (LT's rookie year), and Philadelphia '83 (Harold Carmichael's final year).

Bob Crafton, one of the beta-testers for FBPro '95, redid all of the profiles and gameplans after the game was released to create a "much more realistic league" with a "realistic and quality computer opponent." This file(352K) contains the files and instructions needed to implement these changes. Here is the readme file if you want more info about exactly what the files do before downloading them.
