Re: Discussion - Keeping the goalie on the pitch

Just pointing something out, in case you missed it... you can also ask me :P Steve and I do work together from time to time on stuff, and I have recovered the original dev environment and source code. So much is possible, if we work together.

Re: Discussion about bugfixes and enhancements for upcoming World Cups

As I have said before, Oracle was a crack and the only thing that made it a standard was that it was therefore free. There have been many versions of the game up to 1.7 I think. 1.4e and Oracle may be the standards you have been using, but my point is that people out there will have their own versio...

Re: Discussion about bugfixes and enhancements for upcoming World Cups

I've said it before and I'll say it again. There is no single gold standard version of Kick Off 2. This is where all this preciousness is flawed, and why we need to be more sophisticated: because all this bitching on FW for example does nothing to bring in those who love that version of the game int...

Re: Proposal - Keeping the goalie on the pitch

Just an FYI, that was insulting.

Re: 16th KO2 World Cup - Birmingham World Cup Bid

A good way is to just ask "How do you propose the the rules for the competition you are planning will be decided".

Re: Discussion about bugfixes and enhancements for upcoming World Cups

It is well known, that he who tries to keep hold everything is likely in the end to have nothing.

Re: Discussion about bugfixes and enhancements for upcoming World Cups

I'd just like to point out that the keeper going behind the goal can probably be fixed in a way that does not prevent the swerve goal.

Re: Proposal - Keeping the goalie on the pitch

AGAINST Will explain it in just 2 quotes: Here the goalie can be seen abandoning his goal and leaving the playing area allowing an easy goal to be scored. I can't score this goal, and I'm pretty sure I'm not the only KOAer in this situation. If you start taking away the "easy" goals you w...

Re: Proposal - Keeping the goalie on the pitch

I think that the worst thing that can happen is that we stop talking because we are all too precious about things. We all know where that leads. I had to struggle to let go of many things in coming to terms with how fans play my games. Most played a cracked early version with bugs. The PBD abhorrati...

Re: Final Whistle

I should be able to put John Wilson's adf onto a floppy for you, if that's OK? Don't think I have an original disk anywhere. Shh, don't tell dino ;) The only problem I have is that all these versions floating around may not be the same as the original releases. It's a pain, frankly. I will have to ...

Re: Discussion about bugfixes and enhancements for upcoming World Cups

I'll just add: it's not just randomness. It's risk/reward, like in real football.. you have no control over how good the goalkeeper it going to be, but the better your shot, the more likely you are to score. Introducing random elements into games of skill is a very old and effective way of making ga...

Re: Discussion about bugfixes and enhancements for upcoming World Cups

1 - Autoslide/-headers. Not actually a bug; this was a design feature. I deliberately did this so that the aggressiveness attribute had some meaning on your team when you play; without it aggression meant nothing, because you totally control when slides occur. It was part of the simulation. However,...
