to use manual pass u have to make the long pass config to be manual in button config. type 1 is auto, type 2 is manual, type 3 is auto, type 4 is auto, type 5 is manual. i use type 2, and yes it's freaking accurate. although done with wrong foot, in bad position, manual pass always make it right. but i can't do manual pass in angle other than default. to head well or voley well use super cancel (R1+R2). it's very useful to chase the manual pass ball. the best of this manual pass is that u can score very early in the game, right after kick off, when it least expected.
