Ideas for in-game information

Postby Calimero » Sun Jun 12, 2005 8:50 pm

I have some ideas about the information that should be shown when you're playing a match in Throw-In.

In the current 0.0.6 beta we see
- the name of the player who is on the ball
- the score
- the time or status text (like 'corner' and 'goal kick')

First of all, I think the time should always be visible and not dissappear when the 'goal kick' text appears. I always want to know how much seconds there are still on the clock.
Also, I would like the time information also to be shown in 'real' match minutes. So the clock goes from 1-45 minutes in the first half and 46-90 in the second. The added time for injuries should appear as 45'+1 or 90'+2 for example.

Second idea is to show the goal scorers names and minute(s) they scored in. For example:

Code: Select all

             Barcelona  2-2  Real Madrid
  Ronaldinho (12',55')       Roberto Carlos (45'+2)
                             Ronaldo (88')

This should only happen when the ball is out of play for a goal kick, or when it's half-time. It could also put under an option in an in-game menu.

Third idea is to use a ticker tape for all sorts of information. It could be used as an alternative for showing the scorers names. And it could show results from other games in the career mode. Or say when a player is slightly injured, so you can exchange him.

How about these ideas? And does anyone have additional ideas?

Which of the 3 ideas do you mean? :?

It would be nice if the timer info is fixed into the top right corner and that it shows actual time as well as gametime.
So when you play a 2x3 minute game, in the match this will be shown at the start:

Code: Select all

FC Liverpool 0-0 AC Milan               0:00 (1')

and this after one minute of play:

Code: Select all

FC Liverpool 0-1 AC Milan               1:00 (15')

at the end of the match it shows:

Code: Select all

FC Liverpool 3-3 AC Milan               6:00 (90')


When you add extra time to the game, you would need to extend the timer info with a plus (+) sign like this:

Code: Select all

FC Liverpool 0-3 AC Milan               3:00+0:10 (45'+3)

This means you are 10 seconds in stoppage time, which translates to 3 minutes in 'real' time, because every 4 seconds of gametime is 1 minute in real life.

I hope I have explained it clear enough like this... ;)

P.S. the example data is pure fictional :D

:D i like the second one. I would like to put an option to select real time or time/90 but i would avoid both. It could create some confusion.

I like all your ideas Calimero....

I personally would prefer if the goalscorerslist only is showed in halftime or possbily also after every goal. On all Goalkicks/corners and freekicks sounds a little bit much.


I also want 90 minutes time. Feels more like real football then. You said that there will not be an option Gianluca. So will it be 'real match minutes (2*45)' or 'actual length (2*3)' in the final version?

----------------------------------------------------

another idea..

I really miss stats in the beta. (could be showed automatically in hald time. and always when you press S during game.)

Goals
Goal Attempts
On Target
Freekicks
Corners
Yellow Cards
Red Cards
Possession

---------------------------------------------


It also would be nice with a ingameinterface (text for the time/players during a match) in modern style suitable to the new playermarkers.

Those are good remarks, Danne.
I agree it would be best to show the goalscorers only at half-time, full-time and when you press the 'G' key (for Goalscorers :)).

The option to select real or game time in the configuration is okay for me.
Showing both could indeed seem messy and/or confusing.

Match statistics would be very nice at half-time, full-time and when you press the 'S' key (for Statistics). Your list is okay, but I would add 'fouls' to it.

All the above mentioned ideas can give the game a bit of a professional impression and makes you want to sit back after a game and enjoy the match statistics 8)

Gianluca, when you put in the goalscorers list, can you also mark a goal with a P if it is scored directly from a penalty?

I was thinking something like this:

Code: Select all

              Barcelona  2-2  Real Madrid

  Ronaldinho (12',P55')       Roberto Carlos (P45'+2)
                              Ronaldo (88')

Yes, I agree, that's looks better 8)

So you think it's possible to detect a goal that is scored directly from a penalty?

yea. at least if you have won. :)

one thought. Isnt it good if you have a stas that shows where the ball has been during the match? Make three parts of the pitch and then make % of where it has been most.. just an idea. what do you think?

do you ubderstand what I mean btw? It seems like I described it unneccessary complicated. :lol:

How about making a soccer game where u only have control of 1 player and his career??
If your playing a god season you can get sold to a bigger klub, and if you bad your on the bench next match........
Database like CM and gameplay like KO2

Anyone who can follow me?

I don't belive there has ever been made a game like this.
