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

I'm Back!!!

Happy New Year guys, I hope you all enjoyed the holidays (I certainly did), I'm back home now so I can start work on the next update. I got a little bit done before & while I was away, but I will get to work properly this week and hopefully have it ready for you all sometime next weekend. The new update will include....

  • Fixed lineups for Bundesliga teams
  • Duplicate Bundesliga players removed
  • Faces for Bundesliga players
I will also replace the remaining extra European teams with Malmo, Fenerbache and Steaua BucureČ™ti, once I have finished adding all the teams for the other leagues I may take request for other teams, but for now I don't wan't any suggestions. There will also hopefully be improved Premier League kits and more NT kits.

While away I actually got to play some PES and started & ML for the first time in years, I only got about 10 games in but my Cardiff team is sitting in mid-table and knocked West Brom out of the FA Cup on penalties (I've got Utd in the next round).

Thanks for understanding the slow replies while I was away, I was just to busy to log in most days.

Cheers, Paul

New Update Out Now (DP2.00 Compatible)

Hi guys, it longer than I had hoped, but the new update is out now for BLES/BLUS/BLAS. It is fully compatible with Data Pack 2.00 (if you haven't already download the data pack before adding this), contains every file again (so you will need to say yes when asked to overwrite) and contains...

Serie B
All kits, managers, rival clubs and stadiums have now been added. A big thanks to Zsolt for letting me use his team imports to add the kits quickly.

All teams have correct kits, managers, emblems, rival clubs and stadiums. Almost all players have been added (10 or so reserve players are missing) with correct stats, nationalities and positions. There are currently only a few appearances done.

Other European Teams
Celtic and Brondby have been added, no kits for Brondby yet, but the players are all correct for both teams as are the emblems.

Campeonato Brasileiro
Thanks to Julio Tonello all players now have the correct name. This is only for the original teams and not Copa Libertadores/Copa Sudamericana duplicate teams. I'm still hopeful that they will all be fixed in a future Konami data pack.

National Teams
Kits have been added for Austria, Belgium and Chile.

Classic Teams
As I warned earlier I have started to use some of the classic players to create current players. The rest will be replaced in future updates, the same goes for duplicate NT players.

There are probably a few other things as well that I have forgotten. In the next update I will start fixing any issues with existing kits and add appearances for the Bundesliga players. I will also add Malmo along with two other teams to the Other European Teams, I don't want suggestions, I will decide on them myself in the next few days.

Enjoy, Paul

New Data Pack & My Next Update

Hi guys, as you have probably seen the new Konami data pack has been confirmed to be released today for everyone, if you haven't read about it then you can do so here . Now the only damage it will do to what you all currently have is it will move all the duplicate (fake named) NT players back into the NT's instead of the real players. If this is something you can put up with for a couple of days then you can download it as soon as it is out, if it is a issue then don't download it until I release my next update.

The new update has taken a little longer than I expected, currently all the Serie B kits are done, a couple of NT kits have been done and I just have to fix up the stats for 6 Bundesliga teams to have it complete enough to release. Tonight after I get the data pack I will need to fix the damage caused (more for me than for you) and then I can finish off those last 6 teams.

All being well the update will be out in time for the weekend, so a couple of days later than I initially expected.

Cheers, Paul

Just seen thice so it will give me a bit more work to fix...
