New Update News & Some Input Wanted

Hi guys, thought it was time I should update you all on what to expect in the next update. I don't want to set a date for it's release, but hopefully it will be at some point next week. I'm currently just over half way through fixing the kits, managers, etc for the Championship teams, I will then do the same for the Primeira Liga and Serie B. I have also started fixing the NT player names and will have them all done for the next update, dannythebest spent a few hours fixing them all for me, but there is a bug in team imports so all his work was sadly wasted. Once all that is done I will release the update.

After that I will start creating the teams a few people donated for as well as the Bundesliga teams and fixing the NT kits. In between that to give me a break from doing the same things over and over I will start fixing up the licensed teams managers, stadiums and rivals where needed.

Now for some input from you guys, it is possible to add text to the banners in the crowd for each team. There is space for 4 different ones for each team so I thought rather than me search pictures I would ask you guys what you think should be on them for the teams you support. Let me know in the comments.

The other thing I wanted to ask (unrelated to the OF) was about music for the game, PES 2010 had for me the best soundtrack of any PES. There were plenty of songs and they mostly suited my musical tastes, so ever since then I have had most of those songs on PS3 along with a few others and imported them into each game. I've made the odd change but basically I've had the same songs on PES for 5 years now barring the odd change so I'm looking for any suggestions I should have on PES from you all? That's about all I have to say for now.

Cheers, Paul

PES 2015 Version 1 Out Now (BLES/BLUS/BLAS)

Hi guys, it took a little longer than I expected, but the first version of my OF for PES 2015 is out now for BLES/BLUS/BLAS. Links are on the downloads page, it contains....

All leagues and cups have been renamed and most have the correct emblem. Fake leagues haven't been changed yet, they will be done once I start creating the teams for them. Some emblems aren't perfect yet and will be updated.

Premier League
All teams have been renamed and have the correct emblem. Teams have the correct commentary names where possible. All teams have home, away and gk kits, these are a work in progress, some look better than others. They will be updated so they are perfect in future updates. All teams have the correct manager names with images.

SkyBET Championship
All teams have been renamed and have the correct emblem. Teams have the correct commentary names where possible. Other details will be updated in the next update.

Serie B
All teams have been renamed and have the correct emblem. Kits & other details will be updated in the next update.

Primeira Liga
All teams have been renamed and have the correct emblem. Kits & other details will be updated in the next update.

National Teams
All duplicate players have been renamed, remaining players will be renamed in the next update. Kits & other details will be fixed in future updates.

That's about it for now, remember this is still a work in progress. A quick note on kits and emblems, just like last year there is a delay while they load, although it isn't as long as PES 2014.

Enjoy, Paul

Initial OF

Hi guys, I was going to wait until I had my PS3 copy before posting this, but due to the questions being asked I thought I would post it now, so once I have the game I can crack on with getting things done. The game is released here tomorrow so I will start work and hopefully have something for you all before the end of the weekend, this is what I hope to have done by then....

  • All Leagues/Cups renamed with the correct emblems
  • All teams renamed with the correct emblems
  • All fake NT players renamed & duplicates removed
  • Home, Away & GK kits for all Premier League teams
If I have time I will do my best to fix as many manager names as possible as well. After that I will continue fixing all the other kits, stadiums, etc before starting on replacing the fake teams. Earlier today I did get my PC copy of the game, so I have been able to have a look around the edit mode to work out what is/isn't possible, so here is a little bit of info.

Team Emblems
Thankfully this year the limit is 300 which is more than enough to make sure that every team has the correct emblem, so no more Championship teams with the league emblem.

League/Cup Emblems
The limit is 50 which again is more than enough to make sure every league/cup has the correct emblem.

Just like last year the limit is 600 which may be a problem, I have totalled up all the unlicensed/fake club teams & it comes to 141, so to make the home, away and GK kits for each of those teams it will require 423 of them, plus then there are the unlicensed NT's so there may not be much room for 3rd/4th/CL kits. I will investigate this further once I have started editing.

It is possible to add images of managers, the limit is 300 which won't be enough to do every one, but I will do as many as possible.

Something I will need from anyone who has the BLUS and BLAS versions of the game is the code that I need to convert to. Anyone who has these copies of the game if you could copy any PES 2015 save file from your PS3 to a USB drive then look at it on a PC to see what the code is it would be greatly appreciated.

That's about it for now, please be patient from tomorrow as the more questions I have to answer the slower I will be at editing.

Cheers, Paul

PES 2015 PS3 Option File - Final Plans

Hi guys, as you are all probably aware last week saw the end of the embargo for PES 2015's preview code, if you missed all the news then I suggest checking out and as they have lots. Glen The Magpie and DJ Daymos have had a chance to test a few things out in edit mode you can read about what they found out here Here is what I plan to do for my OF and how it will work, a lot of this I posted in previous posts, but I thought I would confirm it all in one place.

The first thing I will do is create a base option file that will include the following...

  • All unlicensed team names corrected (& commentary names added where possible)
  • All unlicensed team kits/emblems fixed
  • All unlicensed league/cup names corrected
  • All unlicensed league/cup emblems fixed
  • All fake NT player names corrected
  • All unlicensed manager names fixed
  • Corrected stadiums for every team

The main reason for this is it is still not clear how the the weekly Konami update will impact OF's, the only thing there that could possibly be messed up is the fake NT players when/if NT's are updated, but this won't be every week so it shouldn't be a problem. I can't guarantee that everything will be done straight away, but it will all get done, a lot depends on how early I get a copy of the game.

After that I will turn my attention to the three fake leagues (there is no fake Division 2 this year). For my own personal use I wan't the Bundeliga for Europe, Liga MX for America and A-League or J-League for Asia. If the league can be reduced to 10 teams (which I doubt will be possible) it will be the A-League, if not it will be the J-League. These leagues are the main issue when data packs are released so each set of teams will be released as imports that you can import back into your game any time they get messed up.

Doing it this way means that if you don't want a particular league you can choose not to import it and create a different one yourself, I may also make other leagues depending on how much time I have. I'm also open to suggestions for any other teams you would like to see?

If you want to guarantee that I make a team then make a AU$10 donation here then send me a email with the team name and I will guarantee to make them. That's about it for now, I will post more as I get more info.

Cheers, Paul

I have also added links to download a Brighton team import thanks to SwallowTattoo's donation. It includes the 2014/15 squad plus the 2014/15 home, away, 3rd & gk kits.

Thanks for the donations over the last 24 hours or so, as a team we have nearly reached our $3,000 target!! It's not to late to donate here

More PES 2015 Plans

Hi guys, first up in case you missed it the BLAS version of the final PES 2014 update can now be downloaded, sorry again for the delay. It's just over a week until I take part in Relay For Life and I haven't raised much money, so I have decided that if my donations get to $500 or above by 11th October then as well as creating the team exports for PES 2015 I will also release a base OF for PS3 that will fix the following...

  • All unlicensed team names corrected
  • All unlicensed team kits/emblems fixed
  • All unlicensed league/cup names corrected
  • All unlicensed league/cup emblems fixed
  • All fake NT player names corrected
This will allow for a simple base that you easily import any extra teams I create into, you can make the donations here any amount you can spare ($2 is the minimum) will be greatly appreciated. This link should work for everyone, but if you are unable to make it there then let me know and I will provide a alternate method.

Cheers, Paul

PES 2015 Plans

Hi guys, I hope you are all enjoying the PES 2015 Demo and my final PES 2014 update. Before I get into the main reason for this post I would just like to reassure BLAS users that the final update is coming, I'm about 50% through the conversion and it will be uploaded at some point over the weekend and then I will upload the ISL update for all versions. I still haven't played the demo, but will do so tonight and will post my thoughts sometime next week.

Now onto my PES 2015 plans, every year around July as I'm busy updating transfers and kits I start thinking about the new game and what I will do. Last year around this time I was pretty sure I wouldn't do a OF for PES 2014, but then I realised how much I would miss it and decided to continue. Even though I have always edited PES for myself I started releasing OF's from PES 2010 and have done so each year since. This year I'm thinking a little differently, so at this stage I won't be releasing a full option file, but I enjoy editing too much to give up completely so I will do something a little different instead.

I have two main reasons for my change of plans the main one being the amount of time it takes to create and maintain the OF, I don't want to release something half arsed or start a OF only not to finish it or stop updating it. I have always taken great pride in releasing updates right up to the start of the new game/season and I don't want to stop now. The second reason is the weekly updates from Konami that will happen this year, obviously until more news is released we don't know how this will impact OF's, but I hope my plans will stop this being a real issue.

What I'm plan to do is just create team imports, so instead of adding a complete file you will just be able to import the teams you want into your game, I will create imports for unlicensed in game teams so you can quickly import the kits/emblems for them. This means that even if the Konami updates mess up the edits each time you can just import the effected teams again each time rather than me having to fix everything every week. It will also give you all the freedom to create the game the way you want it rather than how I like it by changing what you want and exporting it to import back into your game after each Konami update.

Also with the return of the stadium editor I will create stadiums as well as long as the option is still there to export/import them so you will all be able to choose which stadiums you want in your game. Hopefully unlike PES 2013 there is no limit so we can have as many extra stadiums as we like.

At the moment this will all be for PS3, I most likely won't get a PS4 for 12 months, but if this changes then you can all expect PS4 content as well as PS3.

In regards to teams there are ones I will most likely make no matter what such as all the Bundesliga teams, but I'm open to suggestions, any team from any era. All suggestions are welcome, but if you want me to guarantee to create them the you need to make the following donations here

AU$10 Any team created for PES2015 (PS3) with kit, emblem, players with correct stats and at least correct hairstyle, skin colour and boots accessories

AU$20 Any team created for PES 2014 and PES2015 (PS3) with kit, emblem, players with correct stats and at least correct hairstyle, skin colour and boots accessories

These donations need to be made by 10th October, if you can't make the donation throught that link then let me know and I will provide a alternate way. I'm sorry to keep asking for these donations, but it is something that is very important to me as my Dad, Grandfather and Father-In-Law have all died from cancer and so anything that can find a cure to this disease helps. Even if you don't want anything in return any donations are most welcome, I think the minimum is AU$2, even looking at just the downloads of the last version last time I checked that would be more than AU$4000 if everyone did that (I understand not everyone can).

That's about all for now, I will post more info on my plans as more details are released.

Cheers, Paul

Final Update (v3.2) Out Now

Hi guys, the final update can now be downloaded for BLES, BLUS and BLAS, as always there were things I hoped to get done but just ran out of time. I would like to thank all of you for pointing out errors and supporting the OF, but special thanks goes to Bhattu Krishna, Erik Durm, Duck No.99, 70y and Anthony Alcantar for the work they have done that has either improved the OF or saved me time to work on other things. Here is what's included in the update which again includes every file...

As many transfers as I could possibly do have been done, this included creating 100's of new players and I only wish I had time to create more. The updated list is here those transfers in bold text are done and those in regular text are not done. The main reason for this is that the player isn't in the game and I didn't have time to make them, but a few are due to the team already having 32 players.

Line Ups & Squad Numbers
Line ups and squad numbers have been fixed for most teams, if you use a team that I haven't done then you can fix it in edit mode safe in the knowledge that I won't release another update that messes it up again.

Again Bhattu Krishna has been busy adding more new kits and I have done quite a few as well. I believe that every unlicensed Premier League, Bundesliga, J-League and Championship team now has their 2014/15 kit as well as quite a few unlicensed Liga Zon Sagres and Liga MX teams.

Copa Libertadores 2014 Players
While I was away Bhattu fixed all the remaining names of the Copa Libertadores 2014 players.

Player Appearances
I've added a few new appearances for players I have created and Bhattu has updated lots of player boots and accessories.

For those of you who prefer the ISL I will upload it in the next few days, sorry for the delay.

So that's about it for this years game, the PES 2015 demo is out tonight so I will give that a few games and then I might start a ML as I haven't played PES for a couple of months. Please remember that if you would like a team made for 2014 and 2015 then you can find the info here

Cheers, Paul
