I also worked out how to score from crosses, so now i'm just one step away from knowing how to do everything i need to have a basic mastery of the game..
Anyone know how to defend corners? If i use the header button, my keeper runs out of his goal because it's also the keeper rush button. And the other buttons dont seem to do anything. The only clearing that i've ever done from in the box seems to be done automatically by my defenders!!
I have two Pads. A WIngman Rumble Pad and a dual analog PSX Pad with a PSX-USB adapter. The PSX pad has nothing mapped to the right analog, and the default WInXP drivers for it don't let u map anything, though they let you test the button presses of all the controls. My WIngman Rumblepad seems to have the right analog mapped, though it doesn't seem to work in game evrytime I use it. If I stand still and press down/up, the player moves in that direction while kicking the ball, kinda like a short speed bust while kciking the ball slightly forward. This works 100% of the time. However, the other directions do not do anything except in certain instances when I am attacked by a defender, sometimes the player does a leg fake, sometimes a 180 and sometimes nothing, he gets the ball stolen. I thought maybe the computer just did dribble moves for you sometimes or with certain players, but when I do not wiggle the right analog, they never do anymoves so I can confirm that the right stick does do dribble moves somewhat. With your pad marc, does your dribbling happen all the time or only in certain instances? And do you get rumble in the game because I don't, only at the start of the game, my pad rumbles at the first screen, after that I get no rumble. DO your dribbling tactics work 100% of the time or only in certain situation. Like if y ou stand still and hit a certain direction, does your player do dribble moves because mine doesn't. It's only if you encounter a defender or you are being attacked that it "SOmetimes" works though certain players it happens more times than others.
Also, what happened to the arrows for taking Goal Kicks/Corner Kicks?? How can you place the ball when taking corner kicks if there is no directional arrow? And anyone know how to spin the ball????
I have bought Fifa 2003 a week ago and it took me some time to figure it out. (I am talking about the PC version)
SPACE is the trick button and it works when your player is just near the opponent. For sure it works if you double tap it, but I think it can be done with only one touch. It doesn't mean that you go right through, but you can see your player trying some amazing moves and sometimes it is a delight to see him go through 2 defenders and score.
For overhead kicks you have to hold A.
I don't know if it is possible to curl the shots. Beacause they keep missing from right outside the box when I try to shoot in the opposite side of the net. And it was nobody in front and...Raul. I even put a control on the other side and kept trying to score without the defenders bothering me too much ) ...and nothing. So I think maybe you have to curl the ball. If you know something please let me know. Thanks!
Cool features with the right analog stick. I was playing a game and while retardedly rushing right into a defender with Zidane (I'm still getting used to the sprint control okay?!), I tapped the right analog stick forward. That sly bastard spun right around the defender and deftly booted the ball in! Anyone else stumble across crazy moves like this? Is that one reserved for Zidane/good strikers only and how do I do them again?

I think the shooting control is touchier than ever. I do know that you have to direct your shot towards the goal in the same way that you would use the "pass through" button. I would recommend pointing more towards the middle of the goal and gunning it (not too much of course ).
Originally posted by nikothepotato Once when I was playing with the mighty spurs I did an easy pass to Robbie Keane and kinda pressed shoot and held it past the red and he scored.:Bow:
i did the same thing off of a corner kick with Pascal Cygan (Arsenal), and i was standing on the penalty mark.
also, regarding the spin move that has been reported:
there are certain players that have certain moves that they do in real life...well, Zidane happens to do the spin in real life so it is his "special move" not everyone can do it. there are others that can do it, but Zidane is the only one i know of so far that can do it.
i've not had the opporitunity to see anyone do a spin, i just know that Zidane can do it, and you say Ronaldo can too. Maybe i should just put it on World Class, and play a Brazil vs. France game, and see what happens.
i'm too busy playing Premiership and UEFA matches with Arsenal though. this game r0x!
