Re: World Cup Stories 2018

Lost every game on the first day. Hard to take but on the plus side, all the games were competitive (apart from Gianni who double-D'd me), I scored against everyone but Mark Vella, and the only games where I had any right to expect wins - against Mark and Cornelius - they played very well and deserv...

Re: 2018 WC - The Hardware Thread

It was only 7-0 wasn't it? And friendlies don't count anyway. I could have done with one of those KO2CV discs they gave out at the end, but I will probably mostly play on the laptop emulator, it's more convenient than setting up the Amiga. And now I can play online against real people, and Lee! I th...

Re: 2018 WC - The Hardware Thread

Well after dragging those two Amigas almost the whole length of the country, and hauling them around London for half a day, they have sat in a corner gathering dust the whole of the first tournament day! There were more than enough stations without them. The only silver lining is that I only have to...

Yes. At least Robert does.

Re: 2018 WC - The Hardware Thread

OK, it's going to be awkward but if it makes Robert happier I'll bring my own A500 along with Haydn's A500+. I won't bring any monitors, I don't have anything to connect them to Amigas with and don't even know if the one I could bring will be any use, plus it's heavy and fragile. But 2 Amigas are 2 ...

Re: 2018 WC - The Hardware Thread

If anyone is prepared to take over the burden of custodianship of Haydn's Amiga, I can bring it with me on the bus from Newcastle. It would be better in the hands of someone with transport who is not planning to imminently move abroad again.

Re: The Jappz Thread (2018 World Cup)

Maybe a ticker showing recent/key results from the non-live games? Maybe a separate cam stream just on the results/tables laptop?

Re: How to get a Goal named after you!

a) I'm sure I scored something (only once!) described as a CAMBER GOAL, which was like a short-range lob from around the edge of the box. Did I imagine that? b) I'm using an old CV from the interweb so it shouldn't make any difference to me, but has the official CV goal-type list been updated in the...

Re: Sign up now - 18th KO2 WORLD CUP: BOURNEMOUTH, NOVEMBER 10th - 11th, 2018

I've officially registered. I booked a different hotel (the registration wouldn't let me uncheck the "Official Hotel" box so it's wrong). I think I'll have to skip the dinner and draw, I'll be on a budget and I can eat for a lot less somewhere else. Looking forward to playing you all. I've...

Re: Sign up now - 18th KO2 WORLD CUP: BOURNEMOUTH, NOVEMBER 10th - 11th, 2018

I fully intend to be there, I'll probably have Haydn's Amiga with me, but it's going to be a bit chaotic as I'm only coming back from Russia the previous week and I need to find somewhere to live, a job, a phone, wi-fi, UK currency and to reintegrate myself with English culture and customs. So I'm h...

Re: Announcement from the host and organizer of the 2017 World Cup

I don't think it is fair to start looking for people to blame. No-one could have anticipated the bug, or without the benefit of hindsight that a full re-set would have been be required to avoid it - there isn't any protocol in the rules about resetting machines before important matches (yet) and the...
