It'll work fine if you can be bothered to switch the name of your Piboso folder in documents when you play each version.

No matter which version you run it will look to your documents folder for the Piboso folder. So if you want to run to versions of the game and keep the setup and replays etc that are not compatible separate you must use 2 versions of this folder. So make 2 new versions of the Piboso folder in your documents and label 1 Pibosob13 and another Pibosob14, for example. Then when you want to run b13 rename your Piboso13 folder to just Piboso, then when you want to play b14 rename it back to Piboso13 and rename your Piboso14 folder to just Piboso and all will be well.

Another easier way would be to install both in compatibility mode? No documents folder used.
I cant give you a sure-fire formula for success, but I can give you a formula for failure: try to please everybody all the time.

That's the proper way, I always use this.

Pros: when you install a new release you have to manually copy the important files (e.g. license.ini).
Cons: when you install a new release you have to manually copy the important files (e.g. license.ini).
