Sensible Soccer - Online Multiplayer?

Me and a friend used to be addicted to Sensi Soccer (among the other Sensi games Jools & Jops came up with). We have recently been playing with Amiga emulators (since our original amigas are long gone) and got Sensible soccer going.

Anyhow, we were talking about how it would be great if we could set up an online community so you could play people on the net. Now we both know little about this, but would be willing to put the time and effort in to do it.

I think Sensible is freeware now, and if not we would contact them before doing anything. Also, is there anyway that if we could not set up some kind of website to meet other sensi-fans, that I could play my friend online somehow. Any hints/tips/pointers in the right direction would be great.

You think wrong. Why is it that most people think that old software is "freeware"?

The rights are still with Jon Hare and crew and surely he also has or have had plans for Sensible Soccer today so chance is you WON'T be able to use their IP. And if you do it without permission you will be infringing copyright laws.

Codemasters now own the rights to the "Sensible" name and it's software. The sensi soccer game for mobile phones was done by John Hare and two other people from the Bitmap brothers ( called tower studios), but only after Kuju aquired the rights from Codemasters. Apparently sensi soccer on cell phones wasn't that great

The rights aren't with Jon Hare, but with Codemasters who bought Sensible Software entirely. We also got a Sensible Software for cell-phones (although it can't exactly be called a port), and Codemasters had to be contacted for the rights.

Codemasters unfortunately just sits there, doing nothing with their IPs. I for one think Cannon Fodder in particular would work perfectly on a Nintendo DS. Sensible world of Soccer too, using the pen to sign transfer deals and such would be nice.

Dunno why Mr Modem deleted his post but the link contained within showed Sensi for mobiles and it looked nice, except for one thing maybe: the field is TOO SMALL. look at the distance between the corner and the goal... ridiculous!!! how could Jon Hare let something like that hapening?

A fast paced game like Sensi surely is not suited for mobile phones.

I really don't know why I deleted it, anyway here comes the site again for those of you who haven't found it yet: http://www.myphonegames.co.uk/xq/asp...one%20game.htm

I agree with you Akira the field look way too small. Anyone played it?

jakc:You should be able to play it with WinUAE kaillera. Here's a site I found: http://www.purplesensi.co.uk/swos/hints/swosonline.html
And another, some kind of online league http://swos.elmichaj.de/index.php?si...amiga_tabellen

It's a pity that WinUAE Kaillera is based on an old version of WinUAE. It have happend a lot since WinUAE 0.8.14.
