This install started as a request for a WHDLoad patch for the Kick Off 2
competition version by Deleauvive on EAB. After I finished it I just added
support for all other known Kick Off 2 versions and the result is
this ultimate Kick Off 2 patch. :)
Not really hard to do, just time consuming as there were a lot of Kick
Off 2 versions to support. Some of the WC'90 versions have problems,
namely SPS1270 and SPS 0168, you can't choose the side of the pitch.
That bug occurs in the original game on 68000/A500 already, i.e. it's
NOT a fault of the WHDLoad patch. I've tried to fix this problem but
so far without success. As there are a lot of other versions supported
in this patch I don't think it's a big problem though.
If you have an unsupported Kick Off 2 version just let me know and I'll
happily add support for it.
If you already have a data/tactics disk create an image of it using
tools like DIC (can be found in the WHDLoad package), rename
the image to "disk.8" if it's a tactics disk or to "disk.9" if
it is a data disk and copy it to the installation directory.
If you want to import Player Manager teams you need to create
an image of your Player Manager save disk and rename it to
A word about the tactics disk support: Apparently not all versions
of Kick Off 2 support all tactics from the Winning Tactics disk
(v1.6e supports all of them, others only a few).
If the screen flashes after loading a tactics file from the Winning
Tactics disk it means this tactics file is not compatible with your
Kick Off 2 version. Please do NOT report this as a bug as there's
nothing I can and will do about that! Complain to Dino Dini if you
don't like it. :)
If no data or tactics disk is found it will be created, this feature
can be disabled with the CUSTOM1=1 tooltype.
Have fun with this game from HD now.
Love and peace, Sting, 30-Jan-2012
