View Full Version : PHP Coder - Tennis Simulation

09-05-2010, 01:23 PM
I am working on a text based browser game, based on tennis.
I have a tiny issue with the way the matches are currently being
simulated. I need your help in coding the match engine for me.
Although this has been implemented, I am not happy with a) the results
and b) the commentary section.

The match engine works as such:
a) Obtain the fixtures to be simulated
b) For each fixture, obtain the required match orders
c) Simulate a match given the players skills, match orders and the
bonus based on the court
d) With the results update the league tables, add attendance fees, etc.

The issue I have is with point c. This is a separate function and
needs to be tweaked a bit. Player skills are from 1-20.
Each player has 8 skills, namely serve, volley, forehand, backhand,
consistency, stamina, power, speed.
Player can select 4 tactics: ServenVolley, Aggressive Baseline,
Defensive Baseline, All Court
There are 4 courts: Synthetic, Grass, Hard & Clay.

The match logic is all done, so the game ends fine, just need a
tweaking in the commentary section and the way the actual result is

You will need to sign an NDA and will be paid for the job.

Send me an e-mail or PM me.

Bump.. still looking.

The game is planned to go live in October 2010. So in case you are willing to help an almost ready game, drop me a line.
