It screws up the cup mode, including World Cup 90. What a joke!
DT: Or any kind of neutral match. But it ratifies itself in league mode, 1 leg domestic cup or any 2 leg affair.
Logically, it's one thing to say that it's an oversight with regard to neutral cup matches, and by extension, any neutral matches (however there are no other types of neutral matches available within the game except for neutral cup matches. A desired facility for a 1 leg neutral match under any other circumstances is a contrivance).
Steve: Error. Single game.
Evidently you think this is a certainty. As such, you should be able to quite easily explain why it is necessary that a single game should be played on neutral territory, why that's the way the game was designed to be played by default and why it is definitely an oversight on the part of the developers that this is not the case.
Can you intimate the answers to these questions please, in explaining why you're sure that KO2 was meant to be played netural by default?
In original KO2 there is no documentation on original box or original game manual about the advantage of team A.
So no one could know that Team A was advantaged.
Unsually I have got a good memory and I think that Gianluca might confirm me: at Italian Championship 2003 Dino said (in a good italian, since he worked in Italy for a lot of time) that he used that trick of A>B to simplify his programming of the game(avoiding problem with collisions).Of course, this one it could be interpreted also as the home advantage.
Probably, when he used that trick, he thought that no one was able to notice that slight advantage of Team A, and probably he was right if his game had a normal life of a pair of years, nobody would have noticed it.
But the story of KO2 is slight different.
