Really looking forward to that. I normally wouldn't be interested in a nets training demo sort of thing like in CR but I am really looking forward to see the strokes and deliveries put into the game.
It's there in Ashes Cricket 2009 and iirc, it was there in BLIC 2007 too .in EA and Codemaster games, running between the wicket is disabled if we fail to hit the ball, which can be annoying at times when we desperately need one run to win a close game or change strikes and wouldn't mind risking a run.
I am in progress creating a 3d cricket game. I know you will all be laughing right now after reading this, as would i be if i was in your position too... Believe me, i've been working on this now for 1 year part time and it has been really hard work!
But believe me or not, it is happening already...I have the game engine built and the physics engine in testing, bowling is almost done, batting is being worked on now. Collision is also done. I currently have 2 player models done - generic batsman and generic bowler and have animated them, though still many many more animations to go.
So if there are any modellers out there who would like to help let me know and i will make sure you are all credited and involved first hand in the project.
fyi, i will post some teaser screenz soon....
