    Cricket Management Simulator

    Am planning to develop a text-based Cricket management simulator to be used in
    play by email games. Each team will be represented by a roster and before a game is played, the manager have to send in their teamsheets with the teams to the
    game admin.

    The rosters contain player stats such as batting average, strike rate, bowling average and strike rate.

    The teamsheet will contain the batting and bowling orders sent by the managers for each game.

    The game engine will then simulate the match and a report file will be generated.

    Am using C++ to code and this game. Currently am working on tweaking the algorithms to generate wickets and runs. Also need to add some commentary lines, and a few more additional features as fielding stats.

    A sample over report is shown below:
    First Innings
    -------------
    Bowling from the Pavillion End is J_Veron
    Opening Batsmen are Carlos & Marlos

    0.1, J_Veron to Carlos 2 runs scored

    0.2, J_Veron to Carlos 2 runs scored

    0.3, J_Veron to Carlos 0 runs scored

    0.4, J_Veron to Carlos 1 runs scored

    0.5, J_Veron to Marlos 0 runs scored

    0.6, J_Veron to Marlos 1 runs scored
    End of Over 1
    pak - 6/0 RunRate = 6.00
    J_Veron 6-0



    Hopefully the game will be out before the end of June 07.

    Thanks Raghav...

    The latest commentary file from a match report is now available at
    http://www.geocities.com/weirdokooli...k_19_April.txt


    I was wondering, since this is a Play by Email Game, there will be some conditionals that a manager can set based on the scoring rate, target rate etc...

    What kinda conditionals would you guys like to see in this game?

    M Hopgood: Followed up his debut century with a half century. Most likely the most impressive begin to a List A career by a Colts batsman in their history. In fantastic form at the moment, and will look to transfer that form into the first class arena. 8/10

    Should release the first stable version by the end of May. Since am working on it part time. Its a learn as I go project.

    Am gonna work on conditionals, then roster/squad updations and a league table generator.

    Once that is all ready, I shall run a test league with 10 teams, before the game will be released so that any one can run a PBEM cricket management league.

    Hey all,

    Its been like ages since I have been online on the forum. I have recently started working on the game again. I am migrating the code to C#, so once I complete the migration I will probably be at where I was with this game before I left it.

    Just thought I should let you guys know about this. Once I have some progress, I shall let you guys know.

    Untill the next time.

    Cheers,
    Andy

    A quick update, the code to read all the required files has now been migrated. I have hardcoded the bowling logic for now and simulated the overs. The logic for the runs and the wickets needs to be ported. If I manage to get some free time over this week, I should have the game back to where it was by the end of this week.
