    Beach Cricket Competition

    Hi would any one like to take part in a competititon using the full version of Beach Cricket 2002.

    Basicly you can name a squad (the power of Data editing )

    And then pick a team of 5 and post some orders eg.

    England

    Top batsmen(name) 15
    Second batsmen 20
    and so on
    AND

    upto first wicket 15
    upto second wicket 20

    and so on

    If you want a team just post with this is my real one

    Coach/whatever positon you want

    country:

    and any questions you want to ask
    Or something.

    Good idea there mate - I suppose we must use players that are in the game, with their statistics? However, my orders could be quite complicated - I want to win, after all. Alternatively, we could just let the AI sim the games, but that would be rather boring.

    So my team:

    Commander Sam Vimes

    Country: Australia (AFAIK you can't change the name of a country)

    M Trescothick
    AC Gilchrist
    J Kallis
    Wasim Akram
    M Muralitharan

    You're right there. Don't even try hex-editing it either, you'll break it as there's a lot of knock on due to badly written old code.

    OK, I get it. We have to have players that are in the game, right?

    Country: Pakistan

    Inzamam-ul-Haq
    Rashid Latif
    Abdul Razzaq
    Waqar Younis
    Wasim Akram

    That squad should beat most teams in the world, especially if Australia gets themselves out early...

    jamee, how will the players that are not in the game be rated? The data editor is, as you might know, based on a 1-10 scale.

    Pakistan team to play England at Swanage:

    1. Inzamam-ul-Haq*
    2. Rashid Latif+
    3. Abdul Razzaq
    4. Waqar Younis
    5. Wasim Akram

    If win the toss, bat.

    Warning! Long orders!

    Batting orders when batting first:

    Inzamam 10 for the first 5 balls, then 20 for the rest of the innings.

    If Inzamam goes with the first 24 balls, Rashid starts at 8, increases by 1 for every 3 balls he faces (8 for balls 1-3, then 9 for balls 4-6, then 10 after 6 balls and so on).

    If Inzamam goes after 24 balls, Rashid starts at 12, increases by 1 for every 2 balls he faces.

    If Inzamam and Rashid are both gone with the first 32 balls, Razzaq starts at 4 and increases by 1 for every 6 balls he faces.

    If Inzamam and Rashid goes in between 32-56 balls , Razzaq starts at 8 and increases by 1 for every 4 balls he faces.

    If Inzamam and Rashid are gone after 56 balls, Razzaq starts at 12 and increases by 1 for every 3 balls he faces.

    Both Waqar and Wasim have aggression 20 if come in with 16 balls to spare, otherwise aggression 6.

    Bowling orders when batting first:

    If England are chasing 140 or less, aggression 18.

    If England are chasing 140-160, aggression 13.

    If England are chasing 160-180, aggression 7.

    If England are chasing 180-200, aggression 1.

    If strike rate is less than required strike rate, increase aggression by 1 point for each 8 balls.

    If 2 wickets are down with more than 40 balls left, aggression is 20 (no matter what stated above).

    If 3 wickets are down with more than 24 balls left, aggression is 20 (no matter what stated above).

    If 4 wickets are down, aggression is 20.

    Bowling orders when bowling first:

    If rainy, aggression is 20. Decrease by 1 for each ball if no wicket is taken after 16 balls.

    If sunny, aggression is 1 (after 24 balls).

    If 2 wickets are down with more than 40 balls left, aggression is 20 (no matter what stated above).

    If 3 wickets are down with more than 24 balls left, aggression is 20 (no matter what stated above).

    If 4 wickets are down, aggression is 20.

    Batting orders when chasing:

    If chasing less than 120, aggression is 1.

    If chasing 120-140, aggression is 5.

    If chasing 140-160, aggression is 11.

    If chasing 160-180, aggression is 16.

    If chasing 180 or more, aggression is 20.

    If Inzamam has been in for more than 12 balls, increase his aggression by 1 for each ball.

    Think that's it - it's probably way too complicated, but still
