    Why the Fcuk would you need 4 overlays for a game that only runs 1

    AbBh's Graphic Selector can use different overlays, pitch-ads, etc. for different stadiums.

    Even I use it, so there is nothing to get angry on him. :sarcasm

    Long time since I've done this, but as I'll usually do for big events I'll churn out an overlay for them. I'm fairly happy with the results here, a much neater overlay than for the 2nd IPL, but as always there's a few things not perfectly replicable on C07.

    I've noticed a few people having difficulty opening the archives, they are compressed using the max options for compression to keep files as small as possible. Use 7-Zip for best results opening them, but they should work in any other modern zip file extractor.

    Here's the preview:

    The download is attached, see the included readme file for installation instructions.

    Hey Matt, is this (see pic) one of the things that can't be replicated?

    Anyways thanks for the overlay. It's been a week since when I re-installed the game, and thought I'd make it as it used to be earlier. My backups helped me.

    The color can be changed by editing the rfe file, I think.

    Yes. The colour there is the same one as is used for the text in the blue scorebox, so in order to keep with the white score text, you need to have those other numbers as white. Based on the fact you see the score far more than you see those little stat popups, I avoid using a colour that would be visible easier on both, so you get something more realistic.

    Ideally all overlays would have either all black text or all white text, but that is rather rare.

    I thought you have uninstalled this game :p. Never knew here are some oldies also which play C07. Good work on overlay as usual.

    I think the white colours after Runs/Balls can be replaced. It's colour is after Runs/Forus/Ball text in rfe file. I am not sure though as I haven't edited it for a year.

    I don't play it, just always keep it installed.

    As I said, it can be, but it also changes the colour of the text in the scorebox (the ENG 0/0 bit if that was unclear) to the same thing. So I could make that text readable in one spot or the other, or choose a third colour that is readable on both but would not fit with the overlay's design.

    Wasn't aware it was any different. If you post a screenshot of it, then I might.

    If that's the case, it's better of the way it is.
