Default Player Manager 2 Extra - The Chase for Glory

Hi,

I see that there is already PM2 available for download on abandonia.com however is there any chance of "PM2 EXTRA - The Chase For Glory" becoming available for download? The PM2 only version currently available for download is very buggy and it becomes unplayable after about 4 seasons! Rubbish...

I have the original CD of PM2 EXTRA and am running it via Dosbox which is good. However I think there's an even better version of PM2 EXTRA which is slightly different than the version I'm playing now. I'm sure the version I used to play back in the day had better / smoother graphics and it had additional features such as, you could click on the tv in the changing room and a video (albeit choppy and awful one) would play of Alan Hansen giving a match prediction... If possible it would be better to have this better version available for download.

If anyone knows what I'm banging on about contact me and let me know where I could get a copy (of the better version with alan hansen on the TV!)...It would take me back to my childhood and be awesome...

Any help is greatly appreciated, Cheers.

I haven't found any buy links.

I think we can label this as 'approved'.

@Clusek not so fast.

Player Manager 2 Extra - The Chase for Glory seems to exist only for Amiga. So normally that would be INVALD! unless it can be proven there exist a Version for PC.

*go rename the Thread properly*

I've dug around, and not only is this game's developer and publisher not on the ESA list, it also isn't sold, and otherwise meets Abandonia's Definition of Abandonware. Therefore, unless Cluseck's link isn't conclusive, I proclaim this game to be [APPROVED].

I think there were different versions of the "Player Manager 2 extra" title for the pc. The one I'm currently playing via an original CD (albeit old and scratched!) and dosbox seems not as good as the version i used to play when I was younger...

All I remember from the good version i used to play when I was younger, was Alan Hansen giving a match prediction on a tv prior to the game! You had to click on the tv in the corner of the dressing room to activate this...So I'd be most interested in obtaining a copy of this version!! Takes me back...

Cheers.

ps I think I accidently posted my request for this game again so ignore that...sorry, i couldn't find my original request from earlier and posted again (I'm an idiot)....

Approved! If someone could find this game it would be awesome. I think the version I'm looking for is the one that was formerly sold at this Amazon link.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

I can confirm that the version of PM2 Extra that was just uploaded via ISO cellar works fine, which is good. But there's something that's really bugging me. I'm sure there is another version out there of this game for the pc which is better. It has the same title of "PM2 Extra: The Chase for Glory" though, so it could be difficult to find.

I can't remember exactly what it was like but I remember it being more slick graphic wise, like PM2 (the non 'extra' edition), and with no people walking around in the rooms (like there are in the version I just downloaded).

One main distinguishing feature was the tv within the changing room (bottom right room of the building within the game), where you could click on a tv and activate a video of Alan Hansen's match prediction. (This is not the same as clicking on the newspaper on the table as this just gives a still image of hansen and a written match prediction (this is included in all versions of the game)...

Maybe I'm going mad but I've been looking for this version for ages and have never found it!...Maybe I have to let it go. Haha...

Cheers for the help anyway, much appreciated.
