Links 2003 v1.07


The Links 2003 v1.07 Update includes all previous updates including v1.02 and v1.05. Changes are listed below.

Note: If you currently use Career Mode, installing this update for Links 2003 will overwrite the standard seasons (Season 1, Season 2, and Season 3) and the rosters. Doing so will require you to start a new career. Version 1.05 of Links 2003 introduced some significant changes. Most of those changes have affected Career Mode. You will need to start a new career in order to take advantage of new features. You are strongly recommended to delete your old career mode files and start fresh. Career Mode files are located in My Documents\Links 2003\Career\.
