Good point.

Although I don't fancy reprogramming the AI, so maybe offside should only be checked if a human kicked the ball :)

Please make the offside optional, not mandatory!
So only 1.1 of my wishes is feasible? :(

These will all be instantly done if the KO2+PM code+data transplant is successful:

1.2 The exact Kick Off 2 gameplay (aftertouch on)
1.3 PBD on/off choice
1.5 KO2 throw-ins, freekicks and corner kicks
1.6 Replays
3.1 All four Kick Off 2 pitches
3.2 Multiple kits, and option to choose your team's kit before the match
3.3 Kick Off 2 ball


Simple changes (in theory):

1.1 **IMPORTANT** I want to play as Team even if my Player Manager is not playing!!! First priority please!
2.3 Large database of randomly generated names
2.4 Top Scorers table
2.8 Top scorers table (OK, I get the hint!)
2.6 More good players in the Transfer list. In fact, more good players, period (most players in the PM disk are crap).
2.11 Earlier starting age for the player manager

Moderate changes (in theory):

2.1 Multiple international leagues, ideally the Top 16 of UEFA (HINT: The KOA can help!)
2.2 Champions League & UEFA Cup
2.5 Option to buy players from any team at any time of the year
2.7 Player trading option
2.9 International teams
2.10 European Championships

More complex (in theory)

1.4 Much better computer AI (or at least enhanced computer teams such as the Polyrakis & Troiano teams in KOACV)
3.4 Enhanced menus (ok, you can leave that one for next week)

Remake of the best game veer, Player Manager. I can't wait!!!!!! :)


1. GAMEPLAY


1.1 **IMPORTANT** I want to play as Team even if my Player Manager is not playing!!! First priority please!


I disagree. If this should be implemented there should be an option before you start your career. I wouldnt have it on. Basiucally because I hate cheats that make it possible to play any team any player at any time. I like it the way it was in PM. You play your player and nothing else.


1.2 The exact Kick Off 2 gameplay (aftertouch on)


Maybe, dependent on how good the AI is implemented. I like the AI in KO1 and PM (for playing in position use) much better cause of that the keeper is weaker and that suits PM much better than the KO2 gameplay. If only you will do good aftertouch shots and not the AI then it is better to have aftertouch off.

1.4 Much better computer AI (or at least enhanced computer teams such as the Polyrakis & Troiano teams in KOACV)


Very difficult to do this. The CPU AI in PM is so fun. ( I play in position). To be honest I doubt if anyone can malke the AI more fun than it allready is.

1.5 KO2 throw-ins, freekicks and corner kicks


Agree only if the AI can do this too. good freekicks and that a good keeper AI is developed.


1.3 PBD on/off choice
1.6 Replays


I agree


2. MANAGER

2.1 Multiple international leagues, ideally the Top 16 of UEFA (HINT: The KOA can help!)
2.2 Champions League & UEFA Cup
2.3 Large database of randomly generated names
2.4 Top Scorers table
2.5 Option to buy players from any team at any time of the year
2.6 More good players in the Transfer list. In fact, more good players, period (most players in the PM disk are crap).
2.7 Player trading option
2.8 Top scorers table
2.9 International teams
2.10 European Championships
2.11 Earlier starting age for the player manager


I agree with everything here.


3. GRAPHICS

3.1 All four Kick Off 2 pitches
3.2 Multiple kits, and option to choose your team's kit before the match
3.3 Kick Off 2 ball
3.4 Enhanced menus (ok, you can leave that one for next week)


I agree on everything except the pitches. Like the PM pitches.



Personal wishes.

TACTICS
1. Possability to set the positions for the players dependent on which team that has the ball.

PLAYING MODE
2. Possability to play as player. (not managing)

OTHER
3. Team stats
4. Player stats with grades after every game.
5. Job offers

I don't think that game would be even close to as fun as the original PM. At least not when playing in position.

You don't have to play it ;)

Most things would be optional anyway so you can tailor the game to your own personal favourite settings. As it's not for competitions, there need not be any compromises!

Do you guys play as team or in position? I am just surprised that anyone who play in position prefer KO2 gameplay over PM.

Has anyone ever seen a beautiful CPU goal in KO2? In PM there are loads of them.

Dino changed the keeper AI for KO2 so that it would be better and take the human aftertouch shots. However he didnt updated the player AI enough so the AI attackers are far to weak comparing to the AI keeper. In PM the other hand they were on the same level which made it so great.

I actually would choose. (PM, PM, OFF).

However I think it is good that someone make updates on PM. It is such a fantastic game.

What I want most is just an easy game where you don't have to deal with emulators. Those are so tricky.

That's the biggest reason why I so rarely play KO2 and PM today.

That's why Amigas were invented, so you don't have to use emulators ;)

Can you add a friendly option with any teams? It would help the testing process.
