    What are the try-scoring animations like for this game? Are there 2 or 3 different ones, or it it just a standard motion? Scoring a try is the prime objective in rugby, but I am yet to play a game which truly reflects this. Hopefully Rugby '06 will add something new to the mix.

    Erm, how else can they "reflect" that the prime objective in rugby to score a try in any other way than giving you five points?

    I apologise if you're not an English speaker and it got muddled in translation...

    Sorry, but I thought "try-scoring animations" was clear enough. I just wanted to know if there is one standard try move, or if there is a variation - in Rugby 2005 for instance it was always the same dive over the line. Can you bounce the ball in celebration after scoring a try, stay on your feet and touch down etc?

    Hope that makes sense. [​IMG]

    Actually, there were multiple dives (plus 1 dot down) in rugby 2005.
     
  6. Is there one where they just put it down? I can't think of any occasion where my player hasn't dived when scoring.

    Me neither. Didn't matter if I was 5 yards away from or 5 yards over the line.

    Locksley posted a video of one before it came out.

    I think the player needs to be standing still; Unfortunately when I try it I always get tackled.

    Yeah, but you have to stop to dot it down. I want one that puts the ball down whilst jogging or something... It would be handy to have, not just a cosmetic thing...

    Prove it [​IMG] thats good we can now do that, instead of diving and getting out nice uniforms dirty when we score, we can just dot it down.

    [​IMG] Classic bud. I bet Lotradine & Air Ben will still argue the point of wether you can dot the ball down or not for ages [​IMG]
