Welcome to the forum!

About time we had some Irish KO action, I say! :) I believe Pedro's over there still? Who know's one day you may put Ireland on the KOA tourney map! KOLA (Kick Off Limerick Association) sounds a worthy addition to join the ranks... 8)

That about sums it up. :mrgreen:


As for the tourney, give us a few months to at least get back upto speed and who knows maybe we can get something going. I'd love to make the WC this year but I just wouldn't be ready to compete. There's so much more to our game than we're getting now, but it is coming back.

Is that PBC tourney standard? I never remember using that, also I remember the Kickoff2 we have not have the overhead kicks and we had to play final whistle (which had a habit of crashing) but now the KO2 I got has them. :?o:

The KO2 we use doesnt have overhead kicks, although it appeared in later versions.
PBD is optional, each player can choose to have it or not. If you used to play the "cracked by oracle" amiga version, or Player Manager, you will be used to this. Otherwise avoid it!

For the difference between PBD and NOPBD, check out the 2nd video in the video compilation thread:

viewtopic.php?f=5&t=14866

Before the fine Mr. Camber managed to integrate both into the game, now each player can choose - even on the fly - to switch between the two, we always needed two-legged rounds, having to play one match in the "wrong version".

Hi folks. I met some of the guys at the Retro Computer Museum weekender yesterday and was crowned the Newcomer's Champion in the mini tournament they ran 8)

Used to love KO2 back in the day, but haven't played it for years. Am putting that right now though and will be playing it a lot (if I can get an emulated version to work on my Mac).

Great to see you keeping the game alive and I hope to get to one of the tournaments this year.
