Tips For Importing Option Files

Hi guys,

The new data pack is out next Thursday so I thought now might be a good time to offer a few tips on importing OF's. This will mainly relate to the PES Universe OF but a lot of it will be the same with any OF you choose to use on PS4.

Bulk Imports
It is now possible since the last patch to import all teams at once which is great, however.....

Import NT First
It is best to import all the NT's first as sometimes player nationalities change, as an example Valon Berisha is in the Norway NT but now plays for Kosovo. This will be reflected in V3 of the OF. It also means that if we run out of players to create teams in the future then you won't have any issues.

Choosing Which Team To Overwrite (The 1st Tick Box)
In theory you can import any team over any other team which appeals to people who want to mix & match OF's. This doesn't work well though as you can't choose which players to overwrite. As an example this is why you can't use both the Bundesliga & SPL together by importing one over the PES League & the other over the PLA or PAS League as myself & CelticFCMaster used the same players.

Update Squad Data (The 2nd Tick Box)
This doesn't need to be used for every team, only those where changes have been made to players. This means any team where faces have been updated, teams we have created or NT who have fake players by default (I will post a list below). These teams also need to be re-imported every time you do the Konami Live Update (which could be every Thursday).

Teams To Re-import After Live Update

  • All National Teams
  • All Bundesliga Teams (except Leverkusen, Dortmund & Schalke)
  • All Liga MX Teams
  • Celtic
  • Rangers
*This list will be updated after V3 as there will be more teams.

V3 should be out sometime around the next data pack, content will be previewed on Twitter by @PESUniverse as well as members of the team such as myself.

Cheers, Paul

PES 2017 PS4 Option File

Hi guys,

It's been a while, but I haven't really had much to post over the last few months, how are you all? As anyone who follows me on Twitter knows this year I will be working with the guys from PES Universe on a PS4 OF this year, as much as I loved doing my own thing I just don't have the time anymore. They have some of the best kit makers around & with so many people working on different aspects it will mean the best quality OF delivered much quicker.

Some of the team got their copy of PES 2017 on Saturday, some on Monday & Some Yesterday, others like me are still waiting on theirs to arrive. I don't think my copy from Konami will be here any time soon, but I have bought the digital version so will have the game tomorrow. Those that got it early have been working hard to get as much done as possible for release day tomorrow.

The sharing is a little different on PS4 than it used to be on PS3, you can only share teams not a full OF, what this means is you will import all the teams with everything included, but you will need to manually rename the leagues/cups & add the league/cup emblem. There will be a full instruction video on how to do this.

There are 3 tiers avaliable, the first was Gold membership which means a USB sent to you ready to go along with other benefits such as exclusive custom kits (this has now closed), the second is Silver membership which includes a emailed link along with the extra benefits & finally the free option where you will be able to download everything from the website. For more info check out this http://pes2017optionfile.bigcartel.com/product/silver-membership-w-pes-2017-option-file-add-on

As this is a PES Universe OF & not a paul2478 one I won't be posting the links on here they will instead be posted on PES Universe http://pesuniverse.com/

I will post images & info about what is being worked on here & don't forget to follow me & the rest of the PES Universe team on Twitter.

Data Pack 3.00 Preparation

Hi guys, it has been a while since I posted anything sorry, Work has kept me very busy, so PES has been neglected a bit, so much so that I still haven't finished editing my own game. There is a new data pack this week which is released on Thursday and I hoping that a few days after that I will finally finish and be able to start playing BAL.

I'm sure you have all seen the announcements about the data pack but for anyone that hasn't it will include the winter transfers, Euro 2016 mode as well as the usual new boots and player faces. It is also rumoured that NT squads will be updated, I have sent a tweet to @officialpes for confirmation, but haven't got a reply as yet.

Yesterday I spent the day preparing for the data pack, so I thought I would share this with you all so you can carry it out as well.

Base Copy Players
I have base copied players that will be removed by the data pack because they have been transferred/loaned to teams not in the game that either have a Preset face or I need for a team I have created. You can find a full list of players with a Preset face who will be removed by Megatrom on pesgaming here http://www.pesgaming.com/showpost.php?p=2170804&postcount=387

Check for players created over fake NT players
There are some new licensed NT's in the data pack, these include a few teams that previously had fake player names. The teams are Albania, Croatia, Czech Republic, Iceland, Northern Ireland, Slovakia, Turkey, Ukraine and Wales. I base copied any players I had created over the fake duplicates as they will disappear after the data pack.

New/Old NT duplicates
I have base copied any players that will no longer be duplicates over their fake version and defaulted the names of any players that will now be a duplicate. There is a great spreadsheet by Duck No.99 that shows the changes between the data packs here https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/11RWZReJrXBsq1-zvMuH3ojK4N8K5rsdewf3U_gzBAo4/edit?pref=2&pli=1#gid=1555080046

If it is true NT squads will be updated then there may be other players removed from the game that may need base copying before the update. I'm trying to get confirmation of who these players might be and will update this post if I get any information.

Normally the data pack comes out just as I'm getting home from work so I tweet anything I notice or answer any questions on Twitter while I'm editing, but I will be travelling on Thursday evening so I won't get to look until 11pm/midnight, but will be happy to answer anything then.

I hope everyone is well,

Paul

Relay For Life 2015

Hi guys, just a short post to remind you all this weekend I am taking part again in Relay For Life, a 24 hour walk to raise money for cancer research. This is a very important charity to me as both my dad & my father-in-law died from cancer. I wish I could repay you all with a OF for your donations, but all I can do being on PS4 is offer the tips I have been posting.

I'm just over half way to the fundraising total I set, but would love to go way past it. If you can spare any money your donations are very much appreciated here & if you would like a alternative link then let me know & I will see what I can do.

Like last year I will try to post some pictures or video during the event.

5 hours in, I've walked 10km so far, it's not too late to donate if you can.

Finished & home, managed 40km over the 24 hours in the end. Thanks to everyone who donated, it's much appreciated. A few more donations & I will reach my target.

Thanks, Paul

PES 2016 Editing Tip 2 - Creating Teams/Leagues

Hi guys, next tip for editing your own game is creating teams or leagues, a lot of this will also apply to general editing as well. Doing this is pretty straightforward like everything else, but it does take a lot of time, here are the basic tips...

1. Be Organized
I usually set up a few spreadsheets before I start. I have one for general notes & keeping track of things like kits or appearances I have done, I then also create separate spreadsheets for each league I create with a sheet for each team.

2. Use A USB Keyboard
When creating players or editing teams names you will need to do a lot of typing, you can do this using a controller, but if you plug in a USB keyboard you can type this information in much quicker.

These tips will help save time as well as help you keep track of what you have/haven't done.

Data Packs

Data packs are great for a lot of things like updating transfers, adding new boots or new player appearances, but they do cause some issues. Most things you edit will remain after each data pack but the following will be reset....

  • Player transfers
  • Player nationalities
  • League structure
  • Squad numbers
So you will keep kits, emblems, names, stats, appearances. What this means is that after every data pack you will need to move players back to the teams you put them in, so for Example if you create Dortmund who have a lot of their players already in the game you will need to transfer them back after each data pack. This is also true for any NT's where you may have replaced the fake duplicates with the real players.

Personally I wouldn't bother doing too much other than kits until after the 1st data pack on 29th October. On PS3 there is the import/export team option, you can export any teams you have created (20 at a time) then import them back in after the data pack.

Editing Leagues

There are 3 fake leagues inn PES that you can edit to create new leagues, one for Europe, one for America & one for Asia. These leagues are tied to those regions & have 20 teams each, you can change the number of teams to 14, 16 or 18 & the remaining teams will be moved to the "Other Teams" section for that region. It is also possible to move teams already in the game to these leagues, so for example when making the Bundesliga you can swap 3 fake teams for the 3 teams already in the game by going to "Edit League Structure".

Editing Teams

I won't go over adding kits or emblems as that is exactly the same as fixing those things for the unlicensed teams. Most the information you need will be on various PES forums or club websites, PES Gaming always has lots of league creation threads, some are better than others but they are all a great starting point. These threads will provide you with kits, formations, stats & appearances, for example the Bundesliga thread already has pretty much everything you need to create that league.

Besides forums these sites are also useful for finding player stats...

www.pesmaster.com (Has stats from previous PES games)
www.pesstatsdatabase.com (Has stats for 1000's of players, although they are a bit overrated)

You can also use other football games to make stats, I always use Football Manager, but you could also use FIFA. The stats aren't the same between games, but it gives you a good guide if you can't find them anywhere else.

That's about it, if you have any questions then post them in the comments & I will help where I can.

On a unrelated note, on 10th/11th October I will again be taking part in Relay For Life, a 24 hour walk for cancer research in memory of my Dad & my Father-in-law. If you can spare any money I would really appreciate any donations here 

Happy editing, Paul

How To Convert A PS3 Option File To A Different Region

Hi guys, here is the guide on how to convert a PS3 OF from one region to another, before I can give you a working link to Bruteforce I need all the region codes for PES 2016, so post them in the comments & as soon as I have them all (BLES/BLUS/BLAS/NPUB) I will upload a link to download a version that will work with PES 2016.

To find your region code copy the EDITDATA file from your PS3 & open it on your PC.

Bruteforce Download (Currently works with BLES/BLUS/BLAS/NPEB/NPUB/NPHB)

*Updated* Now works with BLES Euro 2016 version

Preparation

  1. Download & extract the OF you want to convert
  2. Download & extract my version of Brutefoce
  3. Copy the EDITDATA file from your PS3 to a USB
  4. Open Bruteforce locate your EDITDATA & press "Update Account ID" & Choose Update Account ID & Copy Params
  5. Close Bruteforce & delete your EDITDATA from the USB
You will only need to do this once to set up Bruteforce to work correctly.

Converting

Here is a screenshot of what Bruteforce looks like so you can see where all the buttons are...


  1. Open Bruteforce & locate where the files are
  2. Select the first file & press Ctrl+i
  3. Type in your region code
  4. Highlight the code & press Ctrl+c to copy it, then press Enter
  5. Move to the next file & press Ctrl+i then Ctrl+c then Enter
  6. Keep doing step 5 until you have done every file
  7. Select all the convert files then press the "Verify PFD" button
  8. Close Bruteforce & copy the files to your PS3
That's about it, it is pretty easy, it just takes a long time if there are lots of files.

Enjoy, Paul

PES 2016 Editing Tip 1 - Adding Images

Hi guys, I still don't have the game as Konami have pushed back the release date here to Tuesday with no explanation. I thought though I would post my first tips on editing for those of you that want to do your own edits.

PS4

Once you have your images you copy them to a USB in a folder called "WEPES" then plug it into your PS4.

Start the game & go to edit mode & under data management there is a option to import images where you can copy the images from the USB to your PS4.

Still in edit mode go to teams then strip and then you can paste the correct image for each kit.

The process is exactly the same for team emblems & manager images.

PS3

Once you have your images you copy them to a USB in a folder called PS3/PICTURES then plug into your PS3.

Start your PS3 & go to Photos & copy the images to your PS3, then start the game.

Start the game & in edit mode go to teams then strip & for each kit you will need to import images for each part of the strip. As each part of the kit is a seperate image you will need to say yes when asked to overwrite the image.

As PS3 images don't cover the whole of the kit you will need to use some of the options in the game to make the kits look perfect.

There are plenty of images available on the sites I mentioned in my previous post, but these are the ones I will be using for my game http://www.pesuniverse.com/pes-2016-downloads/ there is only the Premier League, SkyBet Championship & Sassuola so far but lots more will be added in the next few days.

I will post more tips over the next few weeks, if there is anything you would like me to post tips on then let me know in the comments.

Happy editing, Paul

PES 2016 PS4 OF Sharing

Hi guys, I have been told that sharing of editing on PS4 is limited just to kits so at this stage there will be no OF's. This may change in the future if Konami or Sony find a solution, but for now I will just go back to editing the game for myself like I used to on PS2.

As I can't provide a OF I will instead make posts on how you can edit the game yourself by sharing tips & information. The best place to look for this is the various PES forums that are around, some of the ones I use are as follows....

www.pesgaming.com
www.pesuniverse.com
www.pesfan.com
www.wenb.com
www.onlyproevolutions.com
www.pesgalaxy.com

as well as the partner sites PESHungary & WEBrothers that you can find on the side of the blog under partner sites. I will also post links to all the info that had been gathered by myself & the other guys I was planning to work this year that isn't posted anywhere else (although most of this will be on pesgaming & pesuniverse anyway.

That's about it for now, before anyone asks I won't be going back to PS3, but all the links provided should be able to point you to either PS3 OF's or the information to make your own. I will post some more once I have the game & have had time test out the new edit mode.

Cheers, Paul
