We did start on Kick Off 3 when Dino was still at Anco but he wanted somebody else to do the graphics (and move me further out of the equation i think) and then with little warnin he upped and left to Virgin who had offered him a decent signing on fee. It must have been tempting for him and i don't blame him for leaving.

I'm assuming this is a delicate topic, but I gotta ask... _further_ out of the equation? You mean he had done it before? A great man of your talent and also long time co-worker??

I sincerely apologize if I'm being too curious <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_frown.gif">

I certainly do not blame Dino for moving to Virgin. He's a professional and he did the right thing. Although I haven't heard anything special coming from him since then...somehow, he disappeared from the gaming market.

What if UKO will be a hugh success.

EA see it. Offers Steve a good sign on fee and we then the KO era is over. <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_frown.gif">

I definitely hope that steve recieves a big share of the salesprofit.

If any company offers to Steve an attractive contract, I won't blame him if he decides to accept it. Actually I'll congratulate him. If he makes any success with KO2002, then he deserves it. I just hope he won't forget about us. <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif">

That's a nobel act Steve. I would commission you as a "Sir" if I could! But I'm not the Queenie!

Yeah, that's the spirit! <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif"> Money is not everything in life.

I can feel a veiled criticism to Dini's move to Virgin though...? (there am I fishing in troubled waters again)

This is definately equivalent or even better than "shame!", "no need!" and "why the f***...!"
A classic quote by Steve.
