maPPMas – Small but serious bug

Last days we experienced a small but serious bug at data update. Good news: I already have been able to fix it and the new version will follow until tomorrow for download.

The next version with more improvements will take its time as I am currently moving to a new flat and am a bit run out of time but nevertheless I took the time needed to get maPPMas running again.

I am also very happy to anounce that the actual version had already more than 580 downloads :)... read more

maPPMas News December 2009

Currently maPPMas release is in preparation. As this will be coordinated with PPM it is taking some more days.

But indeed I can say today that it is working and I am using this additional time to fix as many bugs as possible. As now also some more testers are active and some bugs have been found that did not happen before. Thanks a lot for the help!

After maPPMas is free to download, my goal is to publish about all 1-2 months an updated version. Updates out of that schedule will only be made if there would be a bug that makes it impossible to use maPPMas.... read more

The „Hoaras 1.5+“ project FAQ

Questioner: I just saw a new Hoaras screenshot on – what does that mean?
Mashunemses: I am just planning to relaunch the Hoaras project.

Q: Oh, really?
M: Yes, I am indeed. But don’t overestimate that statement as I am still testing some code snipes to improve Hoaras’ code completely to a higher standard. I.e. last it was too complicated to get the data of your team and the code was too complex, either.... read more

Important information about Hoaras!

The Hoaras Project has been stopped!

Please note that due the update of HA at May 4th 2006, Hoaras is no longer useful as the player data could not be uploaded anymore.

The poject, that indeed counts more than 7'000 downloads (the last version alone more than 1'800), has been stopped due to the lost motivation and other priorities and time management.

I invested indeed a lot more than 1000 hours in that project during the past 1,75 years (about 300 hours alone for the development of Hoaras 1.40). Indeed I haven't been using Hoaras since March 2006 anymore, too.... read more

Hoaras takes a break

The work on Hoaras has been stopped and won't be continued until further notice.

New language versions are the only exception, if you translate the GUI and/or the helpfile of Hoaras into a new language, just send it to and I will still create the new language files within some days.

Posted by Mashunemses 2006-03-27

Language Update

Thanks to the good work of three Hoaras users, Hoaras is now translated in the following languages:

German, English and French


GUI translated by Wazowski

GUI translated by mangeX
Help translated by mangeX

Portuguese - BR
GUI translated by Riccovet

You will find the new language files here:

Hoaras 1.40 – Release

Hoaras 1.40 – Release

Hoaras 1.40 is completely new programmed: new GUI, based on another GUI Builder, better scripts and data handling and new features.

That step had become unavoidable as it shined through that there is no way to develop Hoaras 1.31 further on. But by now the work is done and Hoaras 1.40 is ready for download.... read more

Hoaras 1.35 - Release

Most Important Changes:
- new player database, for updating former data please be advised to download player_data_update
- html scan updated to the new html-code of HA
- you can upload the player data now as *.htm or *.html as well as *.txt files

Line up Assistant is not available in Hoaras 1.35

As it is not possible to work further on with the actual GUI Builder, Hoaras 1.40 will be based on an other one, but as a mather of fact the whole GUI has to be redesigned.

Posted by Mashunemses 2005-11-05

Important Note!

As changed some parts of their code, Hoaras is at the moment not able to upload the playerdata anymore! The changes on won't be finished unless the new season starts, so we will prepare an update for that changes but it won't be released before the current changes of the code seems to be done. We belive, that that will be at the start of the new season.
