    Hi guys,

    I was thinking that we should start looking forward to a RWC 2011 patch. It's gonna be two years ago since RWC 2007 soon, and that leaves 2 years until the next one.

    We have all the logos, fixtures, schedules and we can guess the teams to qualify. The files won't take long to update now we have all the themes and designs for it that have been officially released.

    So i am asking if anyone wants to get involved in a new patch, then i think this is it.

    All that needs making is the actual logos and screens, the xml and rsg for the actual fixtures/schedule and if you wanted, add some newer kits. I can do pretty much the whole thing, apart from kits/minikits. The roster can be whatever you wish.

    If you'd like to get involved, then please post here you want to contribute with skillswise, i.e roster maker, kit maker, coder etc and we can plan a proper patch.

    I can tell you who to assign for the Face ID's for the new faces i configured. The patch would mainly be an overlay of graphics, and some text changes to the french rwc stadiums.

    It doesn't need much work.. mainly just updating the adboards, logos and themes which i can do. If someone can do the rsg and xml that'd be good.

    I'll see if I can start updating the fixtures so long, obviously won't be able to finish it untill we know which other teams qualify for the RWC
     
  12. Fa'atau82

    Fa'atau82 Guest

    Well i think it's a given that Samoa will qualify. Also i would tip Namibia as well, and Russia from the FIRA-AER. They have just beat Romania, Spain and are 3-0.

    The above are the fixtures for RWC 2007 and as you can see only month "9" is used(September), now if I change the month to "10" because the 2011 is set to be played in October too eg:
    Code:
                    <game id="9" location="3" hometeam="16" awayteam="17" year="2009" month="10" day="2" environment="1" />
    When I then start a new RWC the opening game begins at that month="10" game and not month="9" , so the RWC begins in October and then continues in to September where it should obviously be the other way around...

    So it seems you will only be able to use 1 month for the whole RWC...??

    Don't know if this makes any sense to you?

    Fa'atau82 Guest

    Yes, it makes sense to me. The fixtures are hardcoded, to the point that if you change the date, the fixture will not be played if you go over the boundary that has been hardcoded. This happened in the Heineken Cup schedule.. the game won't crash, but the game does not recognise the fixture and you cannot play it or view it's score as the game does not simulate it either.

    So, basically, you will have to have it as September. It's not a big deal really, there is nothing we can do. This is a video game so we have to use a bit of artistic licence with it, whether we want to or not.

    Regarding stadiums, you can take the french ones that are not club grounds and rename them to NZ stadiums. No-one will really care. That way, they can then be used in the game for the tournament with the adboards updated.

    I will try and covert the 6 Nations to the Lions Tour.. basically, you must just use the teams for the tour, i.e Lions, South Africa and the warm-up games.. which would be the S14 or Currie Cup teams in my case and assign the fixtures to them so that South Africa play 3, Lions play 8/9 and the others will appear with their record.

    I will be making a Lions Tour for 08. It will just have to be a mod. It would work with the S14 or Currie Mod the same regardless, because the teams are assigned the same.. i.e Bulls/Blue Bulls, Cheetahs/Free State.

    After my work i am doing i am finding it much easier to figure out this game. We just have to use a little bit more fantasy and artistic licence.

    Fa'atau82 Guest

    Africa 1 - Namibia
    Americas 1 - USA
    Americas 2 - Canada
    Asia 1 - Japan
    Europe 1 - Georgia, Romania or Russia.
    Europe 2 - Georgia, Romania or Russia.
    Oceania 1 - Samoa, one would assume barring some catastrophy.
    Play-off winner - Russia, Portugal or Uruguay.

    See this link. http://www.fira-aer-rugby.com/competition_...mp;gpement=1203

    Perhaps we can draw up some random groups too. Do you get random groups for RWC in 08? I hardly ever play it.

    Opps, Romania is already eliminated, and Europe1,2 might be Russia and Georgia.
