EA RUGBY 08 - JONAH LOMU PROJECT

I did some testing on all the star players stats attempting to make them similar to an prime Jonah Lomu during (1995-1999) World Cup

Altering the players, speed, acceleration, agility, handling, passing, strength, tackling and aggression.

Also the patch I was using was TRF Rugby 10 Patch and Woosaahs Raggasmic 08 Editor to help me.

Conclusion: The star player that is closet to Jonah Lomu tackle break ability is Jerry Collins.

During Rugby 08 game play Collins is able to break several tackles, due to his ability input by the game developers.

Now with me altering his stats, height, weight, and abilities. I could re-create an almost good, but not perfect player of Jonah Lomu.

Collins speed, acceleration, agility, handling, passing, strength and aggression were increased (Causing him to break more tackles often and also scoring solo tries, due to his drastic speed increase.

However, Lomu was never the best the tacklers, so I had to decrease it to for the "realism" of an real Jonah Lomu.

I'm still in search of a face that fits the Lomu and I will be reporting back from my findings.


More updates, screenshots, videos and pictures coming soon.

Lol there is? I've never knew. I'll try it out.

EDIT: Well, I checked it out and its looks nothing close like him. I'm searching of a face during these periods of his career.
