  • FORUM On KOA Forums you can read all the latest activities and the latest discussions other than write your criticisms and suggestions.
  • Kick Off 2 competition version - The updated version of Kick Off 2 works on regular Amiga hardware and on WinUAE. Check out this advanced work-in-progress thread! All reports indicate that efforts to update Kick Off 2 on Amiga hardware are being met with great results. Those with Amiga hardware report identical feeling with the classic game. The game is even more enjoyable allowing the chance of competitions without Team A/B dfferences and to choose to play with or without PBD. Others who have played the Competition version on WinUAE have also found great success, although there remain a lot of discussions about how much the classic game can be modified without the changes becoming too extreme.
