Our simulations feature an offline mode which allows you to test your Multi-Player decisions through it. This video will first run through how you can launch an offline mode,… …and following this, I will discuss the limitations of the offline mode. Now we will show you how to launch your offline firm. Please do note that some instructors have chosen to have the offline mode disabled for your courses. When you login to the Smartsims website and navigate to the simulation page,… …you will see a blue launch button and also an offline button under the Multi-Player heading. Clicking on the blue button launches your live firm, and clicking on the offline button… …launches an offline version of the firm where you can test the quality of your decisions. You are able to rollover and try out different options and strategies before you finalize your decision for that period. The offline mode has several limitations, so please bear these in mind. In the offline mode, your competitors only use their default decisions, so it is important you don’t read too much into the results. Always think about what might happen if your competitors were to do something differently. Decisions in offline mode are not saved back to your Multi-Player firm, so if you like the decisions… …you make, you should copy paste the Current Decisions report into an excel file… …and re-enter the decisions by launching your live firm. Now try playing offline mode yourself, and feel free to email [email protected] if you have any questions.
