    Theonlinecricketgame

    Hey all.

    I'm developing a free online cricket game and wanting feedback / ideas as to how people would like it built.

    You can play the development version at The Online Cricket Game.

    Cheers

    Had a quick trial of your game this evening - I quite like the concept of being one particular player and focusing your efforts on that player (rather than an ICC-type simulation game where you control every player). Is it only going to incorporate T20s or do you think you'll include one day and 4/5 day matches in later versions?

    Hey Somerset.

    The idea is to include T20, one day and two day matches for clubs, T20, one day and four day for first class and then one dayers and tests for international.

    I think at this stage the concept of the game needs to be more intuitive and the goal of the game clearer.. so am working on that.

    Also working through bowling options (Off Spin, Leg Spin, Fast Ball, etc), still deciding on batting options. Was thinking front foot and back foot aggression, possibly Attitude or something along those lines.

    cheers

    Few things after I played as a spin bowler for a little while.

    No mention of extras in the scorecards?
    As a bowler, my "Career Progress" talks about me making 1000 runs to solidify my spot in the team.
    Ladders, letting me know how my team is going in the competition.

    Also, once I start getting better, there should be higher standards with the bowling rating. After getting it up to 79, I bowl and have a shocking day, going at 20 an over. Yet my rating doesn't decrease, surely I would cop a bit of a confidence hit, or a rating hit, for that?

    Hey vic_orthdox.

    Thanks for the message.

    I must say that I have a whole lot of work to do on the bowling side but will be focusing on that over the next few days.

    Extras: These will be added in to all appropriate areas of the game
    Career progress: Better 'coaching' tips will be created
    Team ladder: This is on the list but there are a few things I need to fix first (the coding used to generate teams). I hope to have this done before Christmas.
    Bowling rating / performace: The engine for how the bowlers and batters perform is currently being redeveloped and will be implemented as soon as it has been done. Again, Christmas would be the latest I would hope to have that sorted.

    A couple of other improvements I've been working on:

    Added: Simulation. You can now simulate the game at slow, medium, or fast speed and make changes as the match plays (nice... but still work to do to finish)

    Added: I have added a shop where you can purchase equipment, you get an increased rating based on the quality of the equipment you purchase.

    Added: New landing page that shows your career progress and 'general' information as well as your gear bag where you select which gear to use.

    I'll have another update up over the next 48 hours and will advise when ready.

    OK. I've uploaded another version of the game tonight.

    A few things to note:

    1. Cashflow is not fully implemented which means you get an initial cash flow of $650, once you have spent this you get no more

    Once the cashflow & sponsoership is setup you will be able to earn more money and but more products.

    2. A few labels are missing. Such as in the GearBag... those numbers are the ratings.

    3. Career overview is only the 'shell' but should be done very shortly.

    4. Images in the shops will change when I get a minute. Gear will be rated better also.

    5. The extra rating points from your gear are added to your batting & bowling rating but do not show that anywhere at this stage. That will be fixed tomorrow.

    Fixed: Fixed the coaching tips issue for bowlers so that they now show simple bowling tips.

    All feedback welcome

    Cheers

    Play as an opener. Not been able to score a 100 yet. And the total no. of runs scored and the sixes hit don't make sense at times. Will play as another specialist and let you know what needs fixing. Had fun with the game btw. Good job.

    Hey Shri.

    Thanks for the post. I'm working on the batting & bowling performance engine and that will make it easier for you to control your batsman. At the moment it's a bit random and some of the values assigned to deliveriers (i.e. too many 6s and not enough 4s) need to be refined.

    Glad you enjoyed the game and please do post any further issues / bugs or oddities you find within the game.

    Cheers!

    Thanks Marcuss!

    I'll put that down to late nights in front of the PC.... it's not the first spelling mistake i've had to fix and it probably won't be the last!

    Thanks again,

    Hey again

    My guess is that you were a top order batsman with a heap of not outs?

    I've found this same issue but this will be addressed with the new batting performance engine.

    I played as a middle order batsman and averaged over 500 after 75 matches before I made some tweaks... so, it's closer but still unrealistic..

    Keep up the feedback, it's much appreciated
    regards
