Why is this version "special"?

Player Manager with NO PBD (by Jesper)

I found it on the download area.
What does PBD mean?

Thank you and regards.

Ok but when they all turn up I am running away!

As I understand its a BUG in the non official games of Kick Off.
Played by people that didnt actually buy the real game, instead played cracked copied versions.
Its simply where by a player has superhuman control of the ball in the Penalty Box.

NOW RUN!!! RUN SAVE YOURSELF!

It depends on what you are used to!

If you learned KO2 on a bought copy instead of a pirated copy, it's likely that you will prefer playing this version.

Hola Magnificus, this is a subject discussed to death in the KOA. PBD means "Penalty Box Dribble" and it refers to a special characteristic in some versions of KO, usually earlier ones if I'm not mistaken, which displays higher friction of the ball when dribbling in the opponent's penalty box (i.e. when attacking). A technical explanation and a video displaying this can be found in http://www.kickoffworld.net/wiki/index.php?title=Penalty_Box_Dribble


The most common version of Kick Off 2 featuring this is v1.2 or the version cracked by Oracle, while the common "official" version 1.4b does not display this behavior.

I did however make a version (based on the Oracle version) with the blue cracker screen and "Cracked by Oracle" removed! Playing-wise there is no difference btw. the two.

It would only need one byte changed in the ADF to remove the PBD... Hmm.. Didn't think anyone could be bothered to play non-PBD Player Manager!. Shall we make an ADF anyway ?!
