Great work. I like the way the ball curls and everything. Liking the rain drops as well. The crowd sounds realistic.

Thanx guys ^^ Nabz, it's more a new Kick Off version but years ago that's true there was a lot of football simulations with a point of view from the sky

And for an old style football game, i think we need an old style cover

I had a go on it, I first thought the menue was Buggy and Input was unresponsive, but then I read the readme and played this game with the 360 controler... And it was good

I loved the replays of Close Goal shots, also the game really rewards you for scoring Goals which is really good.
The only issue I could spot was that it displayed Goal kick every time I kicked the ball behind the Goal, even when you have kicked it in the Corner far away from the Goal. But this didn´t diminish the game experience for me.

Another Thing that could be improved is to add a Player select button, for selecting the Player nearest to the ball, the automatic selection the game makes for you, can be confusing sometimes ( it picks the right character without flaws, but sometime it changes back and forth when more of your Players are near the ball)
Edit: I also had Trouble skipping a replay it seems that no button on the controler is assigned for this Action, hower space works, this also was needed to get out of the finished game and I think during half time sometimes. Also just for completeness sake: When you fouled someone it says "Foul by 7 witenesses" I think this means "Foul by 7 witnesses".
Edit2: Also it is possible to turn your Player away from the field when you throw in a ball, this can be very confusing though it could be fixed easily, by keeping the throwing Players angle in a certain area for each side of the field.
Edit3: Found an annoying bug in the menue, when you Chose league and then go on create league, the back button will send you back to the create league Screen, the only escape is hitting alt + F4 then.

The Soundeffect where like they should be in a Soccer game, you get a nice Stadium atmosphere with those.

Oh I also noticed some difficulties when trying to Exchange Players, somehow additional symbols where drawn before the Player Name when selecting a Player to Exchange, tried to select another Player and I just didn´t get how this System works.

Overall I played with Germany against Israel difficulty was 4 ( pretty cheap choice from me, but I am not good at These games, so I wanted to step the game up easy ) and I scored one Goal and won the match! Really gives me that old School Soccer game Feeling when playing it. The Soccer engine in its core seemed to be without flaws and I found myself mashing some Buttons to often, like It happens to me when playing FIFA.

Played it again and had my ass kicked by spain on difficulty 5
But it Looks like I am getting better on this the more I Play it.

Hello
First, "goal kick" is the good name to use each time the opposite team kicks the ball behind the goal line :
"LAW 16- Goal Kick
The box located directly in front of the
goal is ca11e1 the goal area. When the
attacking teari last touches the ball before it crosses over the goal line, the defending
team is awarded a goal kick
. A goal kick is taken by
any player on the defending
team. The ball must be played from within th
e half of the goal area
on the side of the
field where the ball went out of play. The op
posing team must remain outside of the
penalty area until the ball completely leaves
the goal area. The goal kick is played
again if the ball does not leave the penalty area, if the ball crosses the goal line
before leaving the penalty area or if the ba
ll is played again by a player from either
team before it leaves the penalty area.
The kicker may not play the ball again until
another player from either team touches th
e ball. A player in the offside position
receiving the ball directly from a goal kick is not offside"
The create league bug menu is fixed ^^
For the automatic control of the player, I must admit I have a manual selection too but according to me it's more difficult to play this when you have to select yourself the player to control :/ But, whatever, I'll let the option in the Team management : anybody will be able to choose automatic or manual selection
For the substitutions, i'll put some comment to help. If you want to try my game again, in the box you select the player to move (a S appears in front of it) and then you move the box to another player and press button 1 again
I've improved this morning the goal keeper : it's more accurate to catch the ball on some kicks and fixed a minor bug in the creation of the schedule
Next WIP (maybe the last I hop) tonight or tomorrow
Thanx again for you comments ^^

Sorry with the Goal Kick, I thought it meant "Torschuss" in German
Which is a Kick in the Goals direction or close to it (a Word to Word translation). So the equivalent to the Goal Kick In Germany would be "Abstoß" .
So it was totally correct and a translation error of mine.
Looking forward to try the next release, maybe i Beat spain this Time.
BTW congratulations on your A I Never Managed to find some Logic holes in them.

In france we say "6 mètres" in this situation ^^
I forgot to say : Witenesses is the name of a player... I've done a random name generator to create all the teams. So, most of the name are... weird :s

Here is the new link to download :

http://tuxfile.com/aslntf6thjmw

In the PDF documentation, I've added some screen captures to explain more the Substitutions. In the Team Management screen, you can choose to Change the player you control by pressing R1 and not automaticaly. Move the Pad left or right to change this option in the Team management menu.

Enjoy ! ^^
