Gameplay will be in swos style, so frenetic, with only a button for shot,
pass etc. and of course, freedom to do everything you want. The
SWOS gameplay lacks only in a few things, and we are going to
solve them. First of all, volleys and bicycle kicks will be quite
certainly in the game. More weather conditions and also other
things to actualize.
Graphics are never been the main SWOS feature. However we think the
Sensible Software artists could do something better. And so, we are
fixing this. Players will be in the same size, but more detailed,
with shaded kits, more colours of skin, hairs and shirts. The
pitch will be also more detailed with new brand goals, public,
stadium kinds, cameraman et. More realistic weather conditions,
team badges, fun menus, and, we hope, custom charsets for every
team with its own kit... do you want more??
YSoccer uses a standard JSON file format which is a normal text file.
It allows team's rosters with up to 26 players, many shirt colors,
and other features that will be implemented in the future.
You can still use SWOS 96/97 team files: download the TEAM.*** file
relative to your championship (very easy to find in the web), and
put it into the /data/import subfolder. Then convert it to
YSoccer using the tool in the GAME OPTIONS menu.
You can edit teams and players using the internal editor.
You can also use a simple text editor (e.g. NotePad) to make
& edit *.json files.
Hard to say something about this matter. Audio is so easy to add and to
improve, that the only thing we can say about it's that you'll be
able to hear chants, buus and stadiums atmosphere, but also good
menu music (if Marco works well.. >;)
