I did some work a while ago on an overlay, along with logos and a menu. Let me know if/when you need that.

Some images of what I did are attached, note this isn't in game, just put on top of screenshots. Made them in 2007, but I still like the look of them.

I'd suggest since this is a BETA just cut down heavily on the stadiums. Just 1-2 stadiums should be fine, those that are already completed i.e (From my memory, Sydney, Eden Gardens, and maybe Ferosh Shah Kotla by MS and the stadium LC is making if he completes it). A BETA is about testing the game and eye candy / stuff like stadiums is totally un important, trust me but I know you guys would know better. :)

Same with player models. Just 2 should be fine [Normal and skinny].

I guess all the saved time could go into programming the AI a bit more, or as I suggested before, a quick multiplayer would be awesome to test everything bar the AI, which is not getting completed anyways.

I can get more input incase you're interested,

I forgot to add this to the previous post, so would like to do it now.

A BETA is all about testing the core engine, and at certain times AI. A BETA can easily be without many features, a Release Candidate is what is generally full of the features and tests the extra addon features.

I know how hard it is to do the stuff you listed here, which is why I suggested that things be heavily cut down and we focus on getting the core game engine completed, albeit bar the AI if need be(the multiplayer suggestion, I guess LM can get us more input on that). The eye candy can be added much later. Atleast you guys will feel a bit rewarded after 6 months that you DID achieve something, all the while it also won't be a rushed in effort! :)

Is the game under the overlays TAOC? It looks amazing if that's the case.

I believe that is a couple of years ago, since then its become a lot sharper. I for one would love to see this game fully completed, but obviously its a big ask.

Guys, if small companies like Transmission Games can get a few games out without being massive, surely you guys can get one out, make a little money out of it, and start the ball rolling. Who knows, might be a bold move to something else.

Hi Kartik,

A game to which we have been saying from day 1 is been made to have a better gameplay and AI n u are saying only 5% for AI in beta version ... sounds odd to me, who wants 1 stadium per country, 3 different model, 3 diff game modes, 100% bats 90% kits.
Dont give any tournament give one to one games between teams included.

AI/Gameplay shd be >= 70% according to me

hmmm.....am i missing something ??
coz, the percentages that i've laid out are the COMPLETION level...
so,AI = 5% means only 5% of the job is done and 95% still left before
releasing the BETA.
