    FIFA is a swear word round these parts! i'm afraid i can't help as i don't play FIFA but i'm told that 2006 has the same control method as Pro Evo. failing that you could always convert your '5 year old' to the path of enlightenment and get PES5!

    I am a great PES fan but my son finds it a little too furstrating as it is so hard to score goals so I bought fifa 05 as it was cheap and easier to play - can nobody help?

    Indeed, train your son up in the ways of PES and he will thank you for it in years to come. It is a shame to see a mind so young being polluted by FIFA.

    Regarding the button config I must say that I am not sure how you change them. My experience of this game has been thankfully limited. Does it not tell you how in the manual?

    The manual is brief at best - this is really frustrating, I dont know how long I can take being beaten

    Thank you very much for digging that out for me (I do love this forum).

    That is a pain in the you know where - sooner he gets the hang of it the better - I'll get ready for pro evo 8!!!

    Once again, thank you!

    No probs! Glad I could help. The only option is to introduce him to the world of PES! I tend to find that if you just stick the computer on 2 stars then that should be a good challenge for a beginner using just the standard buttons and moves. You can also change the buttons for him to match the FIFA buttons.

    Hello all, having only recently gone over to the dark side(ie buying fifa06) after enjoying pro evo 4 for ages I can say I like the game alot. :eek:
    Anyway back to the question of the controls, you can change to a more pro evo control,x is shoot and b is cross etc.Its in the game controls part i think. This makes it much easier to play fifa if you have been used to evo.

    Hope this helps

    We're talking about FIFA 05 though not 06 and there isn't the option in 05 to alter the controls from what i've read. If any 05 players know any different then great but I would expect that website posted above to be fairly accurate as they have gone into the game in some depth.

    Guys I emailed EA last night and they have confirmed you cant change the controls in Fifa 05 - this is utter rubbish!

    I now have a game I didn't really want and can't play - knew I should have stuck with Pro Evo - that'll learn me!
