<< UPDATE >>

For all those that have been testing the Alpha - thanks once again. :D

If you haven't yet downloaded the Alpha Demo (sent as a PM or an email), I have managed to already implement some of the suggestions, so a "new" version (Alpha #2) is available for download via the same link I sent you.

So what's in Alpha #2:
  • Various Bug Fixes (problems with some controllers resolved, problems where game couldn't go Full Screen on some machines due to insufficient "delay" for the Graphics Hardware to switch resolutions resolved)
  • I have also included a LOT of new Tournaments, so now we have available: World Cup 2006, Euro 2008, Champions League 2008, Champions League 2009, English Premier League, Scottish Premier League, MLS, Spanish League (La Liga) and a Home Nations Competition.

What's next?
  • I will include the French, German and Italian leagues in Alpha 3 (this will also include updated Names). And I'm open to suggestions as to others.
  • Improved AI as per comments and feedback

By the way, I've written the game so that ANY league or tournament can be simply added to the game (downloadable for free with the proper Players, Teams, Badges, Logos and Background Screens etc), and in addition I hope to include some "retro" competitions - so if you're favourite team won the World Cup, the Euros or The Champions League in 19xx, you could download that tournament with the proper players from that era. Cool, huh?

I'm still hungry for more Alpha Testers, so if you're interested - please email me at alphatester@red27studios.com, or post here.

Cheers!

Pete.

Looks nice. Good music in menus and good looking menus. (please speed down the ball animations in there though)

Sadly I can not enter the game (loading stop at around 55%). I Probably need to update my GFX-card but I am looking forward to play this. Really happy to see more KO2 inspirated football games.

Hi Danne,

Thanks for trying. Sorry you had a problem loading the actual game. Quick question - were you attempting to play at 1280 x 1024 resolution? If so, please could you try 1024 x 768. I'm pretty sure that will work for you. The memory demands of 1280 x 1024 can cause an out of memory error on some machines (which the Alpha has helped me identify), which I am working to resolve and will resolve for Alpha v3.

Thanks!

Looks great, please PM me the alpha demo if you still require testers. Can't guarantee I'll be too much help, as quite busy with work etc, but I'd love to take a look all the same.
