Where can i contact about minor trouble shooting issues?
Will post them here if ok as cant find a direct contact link. 1. when i start the game the window instantly goes in to the bottom right of my screen and if i go in to full screen F1 i still can only see the top left of the game screen. ( fixed this with compatibility mode)
2. when playing at 100% speed after 19 minutes of game time the game slows to a crawl (maybe 50%) Im using Windows 10 and running the game through windows 8 compatibility mode. ( Not fixed but Managed to get a game to make it too 32 minutes before slow down using compatibility mode)
Thanks for any help,i played this to death in my youth and would love to be able to enjoy it again
Hi. Firstly, let me say "WOW!!!" - This looks like a real labour of love and thanks for recreating this absolute classic. I have a question though, are you planning at any point in the future to make the Android version work with an external controller such as a MOGA wireless game pad or an xbox 360 like you can on dosbox or mame?
Also, is the 2016 update pack meant for Android and how is it installed.
Thanks again - this is the stuff the internet was made for - well done guys!!
Oh - one more question, why does my team play better when I watch them as opposed to just getting the result?
hi, you should find the saves on careers folder on windows/linux version. You can't share your android saves actiually but on the next version you'll be able to save everything on the cloud so it'll be available on all devices connected to internet ;) (you'll still able to save it locally)
very strange, did u put the sound off? Try click "A" button. Nice the joytokey works for you! We also testing Antimicro to emulate joystick on keyboard key which is 100% open source https://github.com/AntiMicro/antimicro Probably we'll add it to the game!
not a true multiplayer yet, first version of our upcoming football game will be inspired to Kick Off 2 Final Whistle & Return to Europe, so to arrange tournaments with teams & tactics created from Player Manager. So we'll be able to arrange tournaments with teams & tactics from multiple players.
it won't be possible to play together with a friend, it'll be a single-player only since it'll be a direct spinoff from our Player Manager game.
If you're going to buy a gamepad, better buy one with at least 2 buttons, otherwise there would be problems!
