Changes in this version are : Teams are reset properly in between matches. This can be disabled in the KO2CV menu if you want to continually play with a modified line-up. Useless but interesting. A debug feature which has been hidden inside the code, I have added an option in the KO2CV menu to enable it. Finally Steve has tracked down the speed advantage that human players have vs CPU players. It can be switched off to make 1 player games more challenging. n option in the KO2CV menu will prevent your team from doing auto slides or auto headers. This does not include the unintentional slide when trying to trap the ball with an opponent nearby. And last but not anywhere least - At last we have the initial release of this feature. Switch this on in the KO2CV menu. Take the ball to where you want to take the free kick from. Hit F2 to set the position. Get possession of the ball and Hit F3. A free kick will be taken from the selected position. When you have possession of the ball again, hit F3 to take again.. and again.
