Winning a Penalty Shootout
« on: 19 December 2018, 21:42:37 »
Hi all,

I've been playing Amiga SWOS for years (various versions, but mostly 96/97, amd 99.9% of the time against the CPU), and one thing that has always frustrated me was penalty shootouts.  I rarely win them.  Am I missing something?  I score most of the time, but my keeper never saves, or if he does, it's once every fews years (real life, not SWOS career years).  Is there something I should be doing when saving?  I'm under the impression that he's also CPU controlled for the shoot out.

When shooting, I usually either quickly aim one was (up-left or up-right) and shoot, or sim one way then flip to the other.  Any other shooting strategies?

Cheers,
Sok

I read somewhere that underdogs never win penalty shootouts in swos, meaning that if your team is worse, you will lose no matter what.
So its decided on in-game player skill stats.
