What do you mean by "CPU doesn't even behave on set pieces." ?

I have played a little :)

As for....."CPU doesn't even behave on set pieces."

I think the computer isn't good with corners or free-kicks..... i.e. It can't take corners... at least the two I seen it take.. 1. It kicked the ball straight towards the stand and 2. It played a short corner to itself and then dribbled along the goal line.

Free kicks that I have seen from the cpu have all been along the ground and straight at the wall....

Apart from that it all looks great so far.... lots of feedback from me when I can get some time to really thrash it ;)

Edit: I wanted to say that the shooting seems to be improved... but until I get my Joystick delivered I can't tell just how good it is :)

The CPU corners and freekicks were already poor in the 0.06 beta.
I think it's best to leave this aspect out of the feedback for this version, because Gianluca already stated that it is "not behaving" :)

Agreed, I wasn't feeding back, just answering your questions :)

I will feedback when I have tested more thoroughly ;)

Great, I'll start downloading it right away 8)

@Gianluca: are there specific things that you want tested?
Or can we just generally report anything that we encounter?

I bumped down the game speed to 80% and also CPU speed to 80% but it seemed like the CPU players always ran faster than mine.. - They got to every ball first and I had no chance to get control of the ball..

(as you know I play with a gamepad and at full speed the game is un-playable, so only take notice of this is you want to support gamepad control)

BUG!!!!!!!
Try to restart the match. If the game starts with Team A that attcks in the down half then it's all ok.
I'll rebuild a new version without that bug :cry:
