So nothing is impossible... I like it!

If Warner Bros had not already chosen Brandon Routh to be Superman, you'd be my choice!

Considering the ones you consider easy are the most important features for me, I'm happy! So including European matches is NOT impossible? I only added it as a joke! :shock: Ok then I have more for you:

-Remove the bug which gives the player who gets substituted extra goals
-Top scorer table
-Allow surprise players (cheap players who become super stars or expensive ones who turn out shite) instead of always knowing what to buy.
-Add option to purchase ANY player in any league, whether he's on the transfer list or not
-Add national teams

Nothing is happening yet (other than the new IFFs Jesper put) as Steve in concentrating on Kick Off 2 at the moment, but as soon as the world cup is over he'll start working on PM.

Yes, I haven't started studying the PM code, but as the on-pitch action is practically the same code as KO2 I'm quite confident about modifying that side of it. As for the front-end menu code, that's a whole new world to discover after the WC :)

I've never experienced the bug of subsitute with extra goals???

and I have had surprise players!!!
I used to buy players as cheap as ONLY 1k... but had close to 200 agility... man, they were good! So skilful, and by the time they reached early 20's they improved so much and I could sell them for a tidy profit.
But it was more about their development and seeing them progress.

Adding National Teams would be hard... I think, but I would like to see the top quality players who are on form, get call-ups for their national side, and their stats change as a result. i.e. an increment in their passing or shooting, or even their stamina, cos being with a national team and training with better coaches supposedly makes u better player (I think this happened in Gremlins Premier Manager 3?)

Then you would need to give every single player a nationality...
or simpler way would be to just have a generic message that comes up (like Tottenham have been fined 440k for crowd trouble) as saying "M.Sidhu has been called up for the national side and will be unavailabe for the next match" ... cos they couldn't play internationals and be at the club playing at the same time!!
(that would hinder your goals though Alkis??!)

Thoughts?

The real Player Manager never experianced the sub goals bug ??
hmmm it`s a well documented bug... can`t beleive you`ve never had it!!
At the end of the game... sometimes the sub you brought on had scored 15 goals!! it even added it to his goal tally in his stats.. :roll:

There might be something funny going on with demos games. Did you make it work with "real" games?

How about adding random wind as well to increase the challenge? Would be difficulty 4 also?

Steve Camber wrote:6-Allow more kit designs


Instead of allowing all the kits it would be easier to only use one but to assign home/away colours (or shirt/shorts home/away color pairs) to each team. The default kit can of course easily be changed to another one from KO2.
