Vasilis tried a Hex editor in order to find a way to edit the names in Kick Off games and GUESS WHAT! IT WORKED! And yes, it works with both Kick Off 2 & Player Manager! I edited Team A tonight and changed it to KOA 1 with KOA members. Check out some pictures:

Those of you who don't see your name don't worry, you'll be in Team B (KOA 2). I haven't found a way to change the first name's initials yet unfortunately.
Anyone who wants to try it, it's very easy. You can get it here:

Some quick instructions:
-Run the program and load the Kick Off 2 adf file.
-All names are located below line 014180.
-You cannot alter a name's size! If you change "Nicholls" to "Owen", you have to chage it to "Owen ". If you want to use a bigger name, obviously you have to cut it.

This is superb, finally now we can create our own teams!
Thanks Vas!

That is great news! Another Kick Off dream coming true!
I hope we will find an option soon to change the whole name, and not just the last name.

Nice.
I thought that one would need to use a hex editor in the amiga environment but nope...

Another problem is that many teams have common players, so you can't exactly create a proper league, as some players will play both in England & Germany for instance. Maybe if I experiment a bit I will find a way to change that.

That's right Alkis. The initials are put in random order and we need the source code to change that... to retreive the source code from the file, we need a decompiler forr Amiga... when I get my hands on that, I promise you that I'll make the absolute game!

Dear Steve,

There are many members of the KOA that realy would like to see a game based on KO2 and PM. There's an ANCO copyright on both of these games, so I need to ask you if you can supply me with the source codes and give me the permission to use them in order to create a PM-KO2 based game for non commercial perposes.

Why is number 2 the worst player?
