What are we going to use to record the results? Someone needs to organise this.

Maybe someone could bring a laptop and make an excel spreadsheet? Otherwise it's going to be messy bits of paper.

On my keyboard there is quite a big gap between ESC and F4. There's no way anyone can do this 'by accident'. Press ESC and you lose the game automatically. The only problem is it messes up the goal difference for the other player. Difficult to make a rule for this one, as its better if people just d...

(Robert 'No Password' Swift here)

Alkis

That's brilliant! Thank God I don't have to play James Lockerbie. After ten years of playing the same guy I'm ready for a change.

I would already claim victory if I could be sure of using my Player Manager tactics/teams. However if I have to play 'dumbed down' KO2 like I haven't done for 6 years I may struggle to get out the group phase. I suppose I have until November to get used to players who are slow, can't pass and can't ...

Amiga VS Atari VS PC I once held a tournament with 5 players. We had 1 Amiga and 1 ST. We played each other twice, once on each machine. I am good on either, but two guys had never played ST and struggled. Thus I won the tournament. According to these guys, there are very subtle differences in timin...

It would be helpful on the member list to show approximately where people live, i.e. I live in London.

This would make it easier to see who is nearby and get in contact with people for games. City of residence should be a required field on the membership form.

I believe we should divide into World Cup style groups of either 4 (play each other twice) or 6 (play each other once). Each group should have a dedicated Amiga. Then the qualifiers go into a knockout phase. My suggestions for rules are: 2x5 After touch NOT extra time Normal Pitch (unless BOTH playe...

The solution to this it to make a questionnaire/form to all confirmed participants. If the questions are closed, a simple vote on each rule should suffice. Democracy is the best method. i.e 1. Game length....2x5/2x10 (delete as applicable) 2. Wind.....Yes/No 3. Pitch....Random/Normal etc etc;

Also I don't think 'Random Pitch' will be very popular.

1) I don't believe you can 'disallow' any type of goal. It's not supposed to be real football. It's Kick Off 2. If the computer allows it, it's a goal. The Amiga's decision is final.;
