    Cricket 2004 bowling...

    Hi, my problem is, how can I ever swing the ball when I'm bowling using my keyboard... in fact, I can't even spin it or do anything except ball dead straight and get whacked for 6 everytime!!

    Second is, what are the keys that I use to try to swing the ball...I know how to control the speed at which the ball should be bowled, but what keys do I have to use after that to make the ball swing or spin?

    Please give me some example keyboard keys... I tried several website to get an explanation on this, but no one has the details...

    Thanks,

    Jennive

    I am yet to work out how to swing the ball with quicks.

    With medium pacers, just press outswinger and move the marker to the left. The exact oposite for the inswinger.

    To bowl a Leggie, press Leg-Spinner, and move the marker to the left. The opposite for Offies, Googly's, etc.

    Hope this helps.

    Cricket 2004 bowling...

    i can swing and spin quite alot, with all types of bowlers.

    i use the following controls

    d - front foot
    s - back foot
    a - advance down pitch/run
    w - power boost
    q - duck/cancel run
    up arrow - up
    down arrow - down
    left arrow - left
    right arrow - right


    for max swing/spin:

    press appropriate key for type of swing you want (out/in swing), then move dot thingo inside bowling meter to appropriate position. for maximum results use minimal power. Hopefully this should work for you. if not, give me a shout and i'll help you bowl hat-trick maidens every over!

    Fast bowlers can't swing the ball in Cricket 2004, they can only seam it.

    Yes, I had been under that impression.
