Get Yoda Soccer Project at Fast, secure and Free Open Source software downloads


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 soft 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??

Yoda Soccer uses a new team file format which is a simple text file. It allows team's rosters with up to 32 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 subfolder.
Then convert it to Yoda Soccer format. The converter is available in the download page.
The new file will be automatically recognized and you will be able to select it in the main 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 *.yst 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.. >;)
