I'm sure that will do the job.

Alternatively.. I have bought these, perfect for 21 dollars.

Arrived home, installed KO2 on desktop PC used usb joystick and game is miles better. Still rubbish but it will take me a while to regain the skills i once had :D Had to put rubbish keepers setting on, but it made the game very realistic from an england supporters point of view! Should rename the setting 'English Keepers!' lol.

That's awesome, Steve. Remember to download our competition version for infinite extra options. And once you regain those skills, you know where to find us. :P

Funny and painful! :lol:

And what Jorn said. No need to wait, the best way to get those skills brushed up is to make it along to a tourney! :)

Hi. Long time no see. Sorry I haven't been around. Had some real life issues. Picked up KO2 for first time since last July. I am struggling a bit. What's the easiest setting for me to play against AI, and what is PBD!

Good to see you back mate. :) I'm not up on the differences between those skill levels but PBD stands for penalty box dribbling. It basically slows down the pace of the ball giving a player greater control over dribbling movements in the final third. Check out Dagh's excellent tutorial for a more comphrensive answer.

Btw playing the computer is not a patch on playing someone else. Where abouts are you from - maybe there's other players closer than you think?

I am from Chelmsford in Essex, just in process of bidding for a speedking joystick on eBay. Where is the best place to order an adaptor. I can only find a site from usa (would rather order from uk), currently using a standard usb gamepad (similar to ps3 controller). It's not the best for a game like KO2 hard to do tight turns. I played for about 3 hours solid at work last night! Only a couple of 'penalty!' Lol

I too have tried playing with a gamepad. Nightmare! Good luck with your joystick bid though and you may have seen Alkis has just posted some useful stuff on usb adaptors.

There was a time when living where you do, the south-east was a real hub of activity. There's players not far I'm sure but they're not so active these days. Be great if there could be some kind of LOKO (London Kick Off) revival..... :?:

Steve, grab an adapter from the USA site. I did and it was a smooth operation, so glad I did!

Everybody could should get one really :D
