Newbee Can't play match
« on: 11 April 2018, 21:48:07 »
Wow, just installed SWOS, can't wait to play.

Installation went smooth, startet "ofline-game".
First " problem,": Had to wait for Intro to finish. Wasn't there a way to skip it - back in the 90s?

From Mainmenu went to Friendly, selected teams (1 Player, 1 CPU).
Now I can see the players and formation. I can switch to the opponent team.
And I can switch between Play/Coach and Coach.
But the Play Match Button doesn't react. It's frame keeps blinking and I still can change the starting formation etc.
But I couldn't get the match to start.

Please help an old man who just want's to play his all-time-favorite again!

Thx

 What have you downloaded? PC or Amiga? From which link?

Right CTRL = fire button!

PC I think, but Right Ctrl did the trick.

THANK YOU  :D

Do you know which layout has Space as Fire-Button?

Thanx again, can't wait to play the first games in this millenium....

Just go to menu SWOS++ in game, CONTROLS, there you can select it yourself!
Spacebar is never working, it's a reserved key for recording highlights.

Ok, so I'll stay with Right Ctrl.

Is an Offline-2-Player Match possible?

Selected two Player-teams but can't figure out 2nd-players controls.

Installed from here  http://files.swos.eu/aswos/Setup_ASWOS.exe by the way.

Sure, 2 player mode is possible. But one would have to use a joystick, or USB device.
Press F12 in game,  and set  @ Game i/o Ports:

PORT 0 = Joystick 0
PORT 1 = Keyboard B
