Marko not sure what files you have downloaded however I know the correct setup is on....

probably the same files tho, log on to the chat room tonight and there may be someone around who can talk you thru how to play.

While you are there sign up with and you can post your results and join the leagues that are running etc.

Fillipo is there most of the time but is on hols at the mo.

Cheers Durb - I did sign up last night and I'm on the list - probably need to get the joystick bit sorted

I loaded everything from the site you gave and it works fine on the keyboard - even created a CD with the emulator on so I can play on the laptop going to work!

Just can't get the joystick working - I'll have another go tonight and if struggling put a message on the board - although I'm also hoping that my beta for 2004 will be waiting for me when I get in so may have to split my time

Thanks again

Mate, Have a mess round with the port settings.

There isn't much you can change on the UAE version we have on the site so just have a mess around.

From what I can recall (probably wrong but keep messing as you don't have to reboot or anything) your stick should be set up as port 0 joystick and port1 should be mouse or something.

As long as you have a decent stick (I have managed to get both a sidewinder working via USB and also a normal gameport joystick working without problems)

Just mess with it mate, thats yer best bet :)

Let me know what 2004 is looking like as well :)

Cheers Durbs - after some fiddling - got it working via teh sidewinder on USB

Ready to play

2004 is good - the main improvement I've seen is on aftertouch - more realistic

The dribbling takes a little getting used to - again more realistic

cheers, Steve mate, I'm in Liverpool. I'd love to join in, but I cant get the damn thing to work, hence my original post. I've downloaded KO2 but I cant open the file. Any ideas how I can get KO2 online to work on XP? Bearing in mind you're dealing with a guy who doesn't know his Img from his URL...

Can you get hold of an Amiga? One quick way of brushing up those skills.

I've had online KO2 working ages ago, but it was pretty crap as I'm stuck with a modem at the moment. I'll try to check it out again tonight.

Durban? Can you pop over and help the guy out?!
