Fantastic work, Steve - most impressed! The extra menus will increase the scope of future changes/settings tremendously.
Have to admit I was, however, slightly dubious about the 'fun' options when I read about them. Whereas the the low gravity game is completely wacky, forever waiting for the ball to the drop, the high gravity game is suprisingly enjoyable! Its like playing a super soggy pitch (just how I like it
). I love the way the ball isn't always running away (I know, I'm Mr Low-Skill-Can-Only-Play-On-A-Soggy-Pitch compared to some of you guys), but this option actually forces more of a passing game!!!

I completely agree about forgetting which way I'm playing - this happens to me all the time (how dare the kids bother me when I'm playing KO2
). Is it at all possible to include some kind of in-game indicator so you don't have to pause the game ? I'm not thinking of the coloured arrows which could be distracting. I even wondered if the score could be displayed vertically instead of horizontally, with the top score for the team kicking down ? How possible is this, Steve ? (If you know what I mean?)

- Confirmation is required to quit when ESC is pressed during a game - No more accidental gameovers when fumbling for formation keys.
- When accidentally selecting International Friendly, just go to "Done" to avoid having to select teams and start a match - I'm always falling for this one.
Good to see these changes too - small details but add to the user-friendliness of the game. Cheers.
Another little detail but a minor irritation for me. Its great having the multi-speed replays but I often press the speed button once too often when changing the speed from normal to very-slow, and end cycling through the various speeds numerous times! I wondered if you could include some kind of on-screen indicator to show which speed I was on? Something simple like '.' or '*' after the word "REPLAY" and the more '*' the slower the speed ? Bit like a dvd player. Just a thought...
Anyway, haven't tried out all the changes yet but thanks again for the new update - always great to see the latest incarnation of KO2
