Ok as promised here are some early screenshots. I stress the final thing will be a lot more pollished with some nice graphics/menus/backgrounds and such. The final thing should have various tournaments, free game mode etc
Ive also made some additions to the original rules. There will be a rule editor allowing you to pick and choose whether you want the traditional version of the game or my modified one. Some of the improvements are:
-Bowler fatigue - there will be tiredness depending on bowling style, location etc
-Different batsmen will have a different number of cards to use. KP for example has the highest bat skill along with your tendulkars and such - they have 9 cards in their hand, whereas the worst will have 3 cards - your Chris Martins for example. This allows a greater level of tactics and means your tail dont bat all day! Howver when batting with 2 people of differing skill, as the strike is rotated the number of cards in the hand changes by 1 per ball - so pietersen gets a single and chris martin then has 8 cards, then plays a ball and has 7 cards etc and vice versa. A little complicated but I think it makes the game flow better than having to discard 6 each time the strike changes. Thats quite an extreme example though, normally the difference in skill is one or two cards.
-Bowling skill also works in a similar way.
The game will also have text commentary of each ball along with stats during tournaments and a team editor. Probably a few more additions depending on how other areas go.
please give me some feedback!
