How's ps3 progress?
How's ps3 progress?
I just changed the names for now - does me fine in the meantime (though looking forward to that screen capture!). It is pretty funny though, seeing Guildford as some old bald guy sprinting down the line, or Woodcock as the darkest maori/islander guy on the team, hahaha. I changed their height and weight too, accordingly. Just use the official All Blacks site for the team stats. Wish you could edit appearance of the team players..
Having some real trouble with who to change the hooker Luke Smith too. He's a whitish looking guy with dark brown hair the length (almost) of Nonu. I'm thinking of making him Israel Dagg through sheer lack of choice.
Even if there was a fringe player who never quite made the squad I wouldn't mind using that if someone can think of someone. They would end up in numbers 23-30, but at least they'd look a bit more authentic. I've done this with some of the white baldies in the NZ side. One's Ben Franks (did make the side), the other is Jason Rutledge, (didn't make it, but better that than someone who matches in no way whatsoever).
For E.Harper, how about using him as Colin Slade? Not sure what stats to use for him, the back up fly-halfs ones (who you said would be a good Sivivatu) I'm guessing would be the easiest.
All I've done so far is change Larry Hunt to Dan Carter, the no.3 to John Afoa (is he actually in the ABs squad?), the no.2 to Kevin Mealamu, A.Morgan to Richie McCaw and the back up 9 to Piri Weepu.
When you're done dyou mind typing them up for us Xbox users no worries if it's too much of a pain

By the way Duncan Neale will be Colin Slade, Ethan Harper looks like only one guy (who's not blonde like Harper incidentally) - Luke MacAlister, even though he's not in the squad. Oh well if people use my roster, they don't have to put him in their 22.
My starting team (from 6 up) is: (bear with me there'll be a proper fullback at some point soon and other things will change - probably Sivi on the left wing as part of it).
6. Thomson 86
7. McCaw 95
8. Read 90
9. Cowan 87
10. Carter 96
11. Guildford 84
12. Williams 88
13. Smith 85
14. Jane 86
15. Slade (playing in his secondary position - rates about same in first) 86
Screen capture not going great... replays are very limited and do not get close enough to the players to really identify them - there is one camera angle (side cam, close to the near touch) that gets the closest that I can see but it is still some distance out and generally only the side profile.
On top of that, I'm still tweaking the best settings on the Roxio Game Capture unit and so far the detail I am getting off the game is not great when it is a side cam angle. Alot of detail is lost and any images I have got pretty much amount to as vague a picture as if I just described them to you in writing... not impressed!
I did try something late last night and although its going to cause a lot more time to do, will probably get the best reward - full head shots are always displayed when playing a goalkick shootout, so I might play 3 of those NZ v NZ (5 kickers x 3 will get me all the players having a go) and capture it. It means then screen grabbing every face and building a composite image in Paintshop Pro to then post up here.
Leave it with me, its still a work in progress...

You must be thinkin' with your dick if you think we're gonna just walk away from this.
We're gonna stay 'til this gets done."
What I did was pretty tedious but you get a better view of player faces on the place kick off mode. I've done an Aus squad ... took me ages but I'm on XBOX.
Aussie squad is pretty bang on ... only major player that was difficult to find a skin for was Will Genia.
Didnt keep a record unfortunately ... What I did was take photos of players faces in the place kick mode then matched them off against the wallaby profiles on the ARU site. I've adjusted all height and weight .. so I can't trace back who's who now.
Edit: Just remebered a few ... There's only one dark skinned back .. can't remember default name .. but he's supposed to be Kurtly Beale.
Default 10 is James O'Connor and I think Default 15 is actually Quade Cooper.

Looks like HB made the roster before getting the licenses. I have found in the save game file, the player details of Quade Cooper, Sonny Bill etc. By using HEX editor I am replacing the current squade players with the one's already made.
If it is a success I will look into maybe designing a editor.
For the games working hard on this; are you also going to upload the appropriate stats for each player as well as special abilities? Because obviously if a prop for example looks like Dan Carter, then we have a first five that plays like a prop, haha. Or do you just take note of the stats before switching the players around and then adjust them later,...and I thought just going through and changing the names and physical stats was tedious, hahaha.
Also; I can reset my changes back to the games defaults right? Will just make it easy when you guys put the info up!
Hope this link works. http://www.mediafire.com/?9gxpbeekdyv776i
The folder and it's contents will need to be put into another folder called: PS3 . Once that is done add it to your flash drive and put it into your PS3. Then copy the savedata into the PS3 save data area.
Once done, you'll have to load the roster in the game.
Remember, this is a incomplete New Zealand roster. It has about 25 proper players in it. It does have one non-test S15 player in it (Jason Rutledge), mostly because I started to run out of options for bald white guys in the real New Zealand side. I'll sort out the rest of the squad in the next day or so, then move onto Australia.
You'll note some of the player ratings are a bit high, but that was mostly to keep New Zealand at the 91 overall ranking they already had when I changed all the stats as part of moving players around.
The New Zealand side should be pretty challenging to play against.
Also, some of you may note that Wales are up 1 point overall, I think this is right. I am no Wales fan, but this came about through me noticing that their rucking stats were ridiculously low. So I made a subtle change and raised their rucking and consistency stats by 5 each across the starting line-up, I'm thinking about doing it for the other 15 too (which won't affect the rating or make it higher overall).
It hasn't made a huge change, but just means that they don't quite have the mistake rate they did (many of them were complete butterfingers) and can win a slightly better percentage of ruck ball against the likes of Ireland, England and France.
I tested it over 6 games with 3 different people (switching who had Wales) and I still found Wales weren't winning a whole heck of a lot of ball against those teams, but it was better. It is a subtle change.......and I'm not a Welsh fan, I like Ireland more meself, so it's not out of any biases.
your a legend
by the time the bloody slow uk post ships my game to oz, i will have full all blacks and then the wallabies in a few day
i want to express gratitude for your hard work, and once again, you are a legend
Soccer is a gentleman's game played by barbarians. Rugby is a barbarian's game played by gentlemen...and South Africans
in BO'D we trust
Just want to say thanks so much for this. About to test it out now. Good luck with the rest of the teams also.
EDIT: Works perfectly in the UK. Thanks a lot this is quality. If you do this for every team I might actually have to buy this!

I honestly think with so few teams in the game, the balancing of their abilities is important and I think I've done almost as well as could be with the AB's so far. I wanted a few more players in the 85-88 range, but that lowered the overall team to below 91, which is where the NZ side is supposed to be rated. I think they'll provide a good challenge.
hey, can you save the file on a 360? and great work bro
