Interesting Player Manager detail..

Postby Stainy » Thu Oct 27, 2005 8:15 am

oooh.. I just got my latest Ebay purchase this morning..
and it has a sheet.. with Player Manager ammendments on it.. it reads :-

The referees and various types of pitches have been taken out as they were having unpredictable effect on the managerial game performance!

Interesting eh ?

oh this is in the extra instructions for Kick Off Collection, which was only sold to The Home Computer Club members.. :o :o

Interesting but most likely false. My guess is either Dino didn't have time to finish it or perhaps they wanted to save it for KO2. If the engine was the same, who would buy KO2 (or something) :?

Just won another auction... Non crushed PM box and disk..

I noticed that the bottom screen grab on the back of the box is covered with another screen grab.. it`s litterally been stuck over with another picture..

Im wondering whether I should remove it see whats behind :shock: :shock:

In my original scan of my original PM box inHOL

The stat screen grab ( at the bottom ) has been replaced with a screen grab of the `select Team` screen..
