New Update Out Now (Apr4)

Hi guys, the new update is out now for BLES/BLUS/BLAS :) It contains all 882 files, here's what's new....

I have done over 500 transfers that were missed by the last data pack, most are from the Argentinian and Brazilian leagues, but there are a few others from other leagues. Some transfers are still missing as I haven't created all the players as yet, I will add these in the next update. The transfers have caused some team line ups to mess up, this is only really a issue in Exhibition mode, again I will fix these in the next update.

The remaining J-League kits have been added along with kits for Avai and Joinville so every team now has the correct kits. In future updates I will continue to improve the existing kits and update the new NT kits.

Player Appearances
Lots more player appearances have been added, a big thanks to who from PESGaming who added lots for me. I haven't started on your requests yet and will do so in the next update along with more players I decide to update. The faces currently done can be found here

I have updated all the managers that have changed for the leagues I had previously corrected the names for. In the next update I will start correcting the manager names and stadiums for the leagues I haven't already done.

That's probably about it, although as always there are probably a few other small things I have fixed and remember if you are enjoying my OF and have some spare cash you can donate here to help a great cause.

Happy Easter, Paul

Player Appearance Requests

Hi guys, in case you missed it the full version of my OF is now on the downloads page, there is nothing different from last weeks update, just everything in one file to download for those of you who prefer that.

I plan to release another update in a week or two, my main focus is fixing the missing transfers and adding the rest of the J-League kits but as a break I have started doing some player appearances so I thought I would start taking requests. Rules will be pretty much the same as previous years, but here they are...

  • 2 players per person
  • No requests from "Anonymous" users
  • Please post the full name & team
  • I won't do players who have a preset face
If you don't have a Google account to post under a user name then you can email your request to I won't reply to the request unless there is a error in the request. As I'm rubbish at making faces I won't be able to complete every request, but I will keep a record of them so if someone makes them I can add them.

That's about it for now, so request away....

New Update Out Now (Mar16)

Hi guys, the new update compatible with DP4.00 is out now for BLES/BLUS/BLAS. For now it is hust the new files so if you don't already have them you need the Jan11 & Feb15 updates before adding this one. Later in the week when I have more time I will upload full updates with every file in one link for each version. The update contains....

Data Pack Fixes
Everything that was messed up by the data pack has been fixed, so teams are back in the correct leagues, player nationalities are fixed and squads are fixed.

Most transfers were done by the data pack, I have fixed as many as possible for now that were missed. The Brazilian and Argentinian leagues still need quite a bit of work and there are still some missing players from European teams such as Jonas from Benfica. I will fix these in the next update.

Brazilian League
The promoted teams have been added, Ponte Preta & Vasco Da Gama have been moved and updated and Avai and Joinville have been created to take up the last two fake teams. As above not all transfers have been done as yet, but they are more up to date than the other teams. Currently Avai and Joinville don't have the correct kits, but this will be fixed in the next update.

A few more kits have been added, the rest will be in the next update.

That's about it (although I'm sure there are a few things I have forgotten). From here on I will concentrate on the cosmetic things like player appearances, improving kits, manager names & stadium names, as well as the remaining missing transfers.

The update is still big, so just like always make sure you give everything time to load before copying to your PS3.

If you are enjoying the OF and have some spare money then please look at my previous post. A massive thanks to those of you who have already donated.

Enjoy, Paul

I Want Your Money

Hi guys, the new data pack is out next Thursday and I will do my best to have a fix a couple of days later. It should be MAL/BAL ready and after that I can fix up the last few kits and start on updating player appearances.

A lot of people have asked about making donations, which I have held of for a few months as I like them all to go to charity. Registrations have opened again for this years Relay For Life and I have signed up again to take part again this year in the 24 hour walk for cancer research. If you are enjoying my OF and have some spare money then you can donate here

Last year I raised just over $200 from you all, but this year I would like to get even more, I've set a target of $500 but would live to smash that and I hope you can all help.

Cheers, Paul

New Update Out Now (Feb15)

Hi guys, I know I said I wouldn't do it, but I have done a new update compatible with Data Pack 3.00. To save time this update only includes the new files, so before adding it you need to make sure you have the previous update (Jan11), then download the Data Pack, then add the new files. The update contains....

All J-League teams have been added, there are a few players missing (mainly young players) and only a couple of appearances have been done so far. Only Shimizu S-Pulse have their kits done at the moment, everything else will be fixed in the next update.

All NT's now have the correct kits, as I posted previously I have had to compromise on some GK kits due to space, if you haven't already seen what I mean you can see here

Other Teams
Steaua Buchresti have been created to replace the last Other European team. Audax Italiano, Santiago Wanderers and Universidad de Concepcion have been created to replace some of the Other South American teams. No appearances have been done yet, but everything else is done, the last two Other South American Teams will be replaced by Avai and Joinville in the next update.

I have completed all the transfers for the teams I have created. For the in game teams I will wait for the next Konami Data Pack.

Classic Teams
Every player has now been used to create current players, they have been renamed Other Players A and Other Players B.

Team Imports
There are also two team imports you can use if you choose, they are Rangers and Crewe Alexandra. These teams can be imported over any unlicensed team.

There are a few other things such as updated West Ham kits with their new sponsor and the new Portuguese Primeira Liga logo as well. Between now and the next data pack I will add the last two teams, missing kits and missing players so the OF is ready for playing ML/BAL. After that I can get to work on updating things like player player appearances and improving kits.

This was never mean't to be released, so there may be the odd error. I've done my best to make sure there are none, but if you notice anything then let me know.

Enjoy, Paul

New Plans

Hi guys, I have decided that I won't be releasing a fix for Data Pack 3.00, there a re a couple of reasons for this which I will explain....

I've nearly fixed everything back to how I had it before the data pack, but even then the OF is not fit for release as I still have the last few teams half done and some players to create that have transferred to teams I have created. The line ups also need fixing for all the teams I have created as they have become messed up when I have been doing the transfers.

The other reason is when importing all my teams back in new files have been created for all the team emblems and kits. This will happen again after the next data pack so I don't want to spend 3 or 4 hours converting those files just to have to do them all over again in a couple of weeks.

So basically you have two options, if you want to play online then you need to download Data Pack 3.00, but you will have messed up Bundesliga, Liga MX and NT's. Or if you don't play online then don't download it & everything will stay as it is.

The next data pack should be out in two or three weeks and I will release my update a day or two after it. Just so you all know I will be away this weekend with very little Internet access, so replies to comments may be slow.

Have a great weekend, Paul

Don't Download Data Pack 3.00

Hi guys, surprisingly Data Pack 3.00 has just been released. I've just started exporting all my teams so I can import them back in afterwards. I have no idea what is in the data pack, but I will update this post as I have more news.

6.30pm 5/3/2015
All teams are now exported, seems like the server is offline so the data pack can't be downloaded yet even though it keeps telling me it is available.

10.30pm 5/3/2015
Don't download the data pack so far I have noticed no changes other than resetting the squads.

11.30pm 5/3/2015
Again don't download data pack 3.00 ;)

9.30am 6/3/2015
I managed to get all the club sides fixed last night, now I just need to fix the NT's.

Cheers, Paul

Who Do You Want To Save?

Hi guys, just thought I would update you all on my progress and ask you all a question. The transfer window ends in a week and hopefully the next Konami data pack will follow as quickly as possible after. I don't expect it until at least 2 weeks after the close of the transfer window and it may take longer than that. Now some players will be removed because they have moved to teams not in the game, so I want to know who you would like me to keep in the OF? Remember Copa Libertadores, Copa Sudamericana and Asian CL teams won't be updated by the data pack so all those players will remain and I don't need to save them. I will do my best to save as many of your suggestions as possible.

So far since the last update I have finished all the NT kits (with compromises as outlined in my previous post), added Steaua Buchresti and I have nearly finished the J-League (minus kits). I'm not sure on the release date of my new update, it will depend on how quickly I can finish the remaining teams as well as the release date of the next data pack.

That's about it for now, thanks for all your support,

A Few Things...

Hi guys, hope you are all enjoying the last update, I thought now was a good time to update you all on a few things.

I have finished all the NT kits & have worked out that I'm 39 kits short to do every fake/unlicensed team, I've found I can make the North Korea GK kit perfectly without any images so that leaves 38. What I have decided to do is use one image for multiple NT GK kits then just use the NT flag instead of the correct federation image. So for example it is possible to use 1 kit slot to do all the green, purple & blue Nike GK kits or 1 image to do all the yellow Adidas NT GK kits. It's not perfect, but it is the best solution I can come up with.

Here is an example...

Belgium Before

Belgium After

Liga MX
I have been review the stats for the Liga MX players, its not making much difference to the team ratings, but they are a fairer representation. I've done a bit of research into the team rating and have found it to be very flawed so just like player OVR ratings I will continue to ignore it. If you want to read about what I found you can do so here

I have started creating the J-League teams and I realized I had made a mistake as Cerezo Osaka who already in the game were relegated so I have had to remove Newcastle Jets from the OF to make space for the extra team. I'm using the WE 2014 stats for the players just like last year.

Other Teams
I still need to make Steaua Bucuresti to replace the final fake European team plus there are 5 fake South American teams. I'm looking for suggestions for these, the conditions are they can't already be in the game, must play in the top division of their country and not be in the 2015 Copa Libertadores.

As I said in my previous post I will only be updating transfers for the teams I have created. I will wait for the Konami data pack for the others. This probably won't be released until mid/late February at the earliest, but I don't want to waste my time doing them when they will be fixed anyway.

Once these things are finished I can release the next update, there is no timescale for this, it might take 1, 2 or 3 weeks. I want it done as quickly as you all do so I can start playing my favorite mode BAL. After that I can start fixing things like player appearances, manager names, stadium names, etc.

Cheers, Paul

New Update Out Now (Jan11)

Hi guys, the new update is out now for BLES/BLUS/BLAS, just like the previous updates it contains every file so when copying give plenty of time for everything to load and say yes when asked to overwrite. The update contains....

Premier League
Kits updated for about half the teams, the rest will be done in the next update along with updated Championship and Serie B kits.

Line ups fixed and duplicate players removed. Some extra players added. Some more appearances added, I know I said I would have them all done but I decided to do the following instead.

Liga MX
All teams added with home, away & gk kits plus correct players. No appearances done yet, they will be done in future updates. A massive thanks to JeeCkho for providing the player stats.

Other Teams
Malmo and Fenerbache added to the other European teams thanks to Zsolt and Adelaide Utd, Brisbane Roar, Melbourne City, Newcastle Jets, Perth Glory and Sydney FC added to the other Asian teams thanks to GronKaroglan. Until I make the J-League some of them appear in the PAS League for now. No appearances as yet, again they will follow in future updates.

National Teams
Kits added for the remaining European teams, all African teams and Uruguay. Thanks to Zsolt again for a lot of these.

I haven't done any as yet, I will only be doing transfers for the teams I have created, I will wait for the next Konami data pack to fix the transfers for the teams already in the game. The same goes for managers, I will wait to see if they are updated by the next data pack before making any changes.

The last data pack reset all of these for the licensed teams, I won't be updating any of them until I know if the next data pack will do the same.

That's about it for now, in terms of creating teams I just need to do the J-League, Steaua Buchresti & 5 South American teams. After that I can start updating things such as player appearances.

Enjoy, Paul
