I'm Back!!

Hi guys, I'm back home now (with my solid internet connection). Sorry I have been slow to respond over the last few days, but while I was at the coast & I only had my mobile internet connection which was overloaded due to the number of people using the service so I could only get a good connection after 1am.

As the transfer window is about to open I will be creating a new page on the blog listing transfers. I will do my best to keep on top of them, but any input from you all will be much appreciated, please only post transfers with confirmed links from reliable sources such as club websites or sites such as Sky Sports or BBC (or other countries equivilants).

You can find the page here

I will list all transfers on the page & if you can provide squad numbers where they are missing that would be great.

Cheers, Paul

Responses Over The Next Week

Hi guys, as it is the holiday season I am currently spending time with family & I am away from home (since yesterday). I have my laptop & PS3 with me but will most likely be spending less time on both over the next week, but I will still answer your questions as quickly as possible.

Until the 30th/31st of December though my PS3 will not be connected to the internet, so I won't be able to respond to any messages you send or any friend requests through PSN. This means if you need to ask me something then you can contact me on here, via email, ton twitter or my threads on the PESFan & PESGaming forums.

I will leave you with a couple of goals scored my OF user Pablihno.

Enjoy, Paul

New Subscriber Update Out

Hi guys, I sent out the latest subsciber update out a hour or 2 ago, it is fully compatible with the latest patch & data pack. It contains more new face scans/builds plus a small update to the West Ham home kit. Below are a few preview pics.

Have a great weekend, Paul

New Patch & Data Pack Out Now

Hi guys, just a quick heads up that new patch v1.03 is out now & as a added bonus their is also a new data pack v3.00. I have just installed the patch & I'm currently downloading the data pack.

If you haven't seen what is included in the new patch check here

From the notes when I logged in the data pack contains some new celebrations & some new boots. Once it has downloaded I will list the boots, the celebrations are for Neymar, Hernandez & Yoshida (there may be more). Again once the download finishes I will post some videos.

Make sure you download both (it wont effect the OF as long as you say no when asked to update lineups) & I will send out the subscriber update later this evening & v1.6 of my OF will be released tomorrow (Friday) afternoon.

Enjoy, Paul

New Boots

New Celebrations

PC OF Editor

Hi guys, for the last few days I have had access to a few bits of software that allow you to take the Editdata file from your PS3 & convert it to a PC file so it can be accessed using one of the many PC OF Editors (I have been using wild's) then convert it back to PS3. I'm still playing around with it at the moment, trying to work a few things out with it. The PC editing software allows me to do a lot of things that can't be done using the IG editor, so far there are 3 things that I'm pretty sure it will be possible to do plus one thing I hope I will be able to do by using this method.

Bring back old presets
Even though a player may be taken out of the game from one year to the next as they have moved to a club that isn't IG or their club is no longer IG that players face is still on the game. For example Henry was added back into PES 2012 after the last data pack, but was removed this year as he had gone back to NY. Using the editor I should be able to give players like him their preset face.

Edit hidden teams
Some of you may have come up against the odd fake team in ML/BAL that don't appear anywhere else in the game. I have played 2 different ones in friendlys on BAL. Using the editor I can edit the team names aswell as the players. What I would like to know is if anyone has met any of these teams in the CL/EL/Libertadores while playing ML/BAL or even seen them in the competition? If so were you playing in Europe or South America? If you have then I will edit them to be real clubs with real players, that even though we won't be able to play with them it will add to the realism.

Make the latest version of the OF compatible with no data pack Their is a option in the editor to make the game work with various data packs, if this works I should be able to create a seperate download for each new version of the OF that works for those of you who don't have the latest data pack installed.

The final thing which I don't know if can be done, but I think it can is unlock licensed teams so at the end of the season when new kits come out I can update the licensed teams aswell and not just the unlicensed teams. Let me know your thoughts, Cheers, Paul

1st Online Community Match

Hi guys, I just played the 1st community match against RahemproBarca. I've got to say it was very enjoyable as just before I played a random ranking match for the 1st time & ended up playing  someone who picked Milan & the match lagged from start to finish (I got thumped 4-1, I was Sampdoria).

I thought maybe it was my connection (which can be dodgy), but once we got in the community game was lag free & a pleasure to play. Rahem even sent me & message before hand saying no Madrid or Barca. He picked Deportivo & I picked Fulham.

I have to say he dominated me for most of the match & I was lucky to escape with a 1-1 draw thanks to some good defending from Hangeland. I recorded the highlights but I was a bit slow so they cut out before the finish, here they are

So thats match one done, hopefully more of you will join soon. Cheers, Paul

Online Community

Hi its me again, I have just setup a community for users of my OF as discussed over the last few days. The community is called paul2478 OF Community, I have set a password for it so I can keep control of it.

If you would like to join email me & I will send you the password, you can also add me as a friend on PSN my user name is paul2478.

There are over 5,000 people using this OF so hopefully there will always be plenty of people online. If enough people take part I will try & set up monthly prizes in the New Year.

Something For XBOX 360 Owners

You can download them here the rar file includes a text document on what you need to do to get them in the game.

Hope you all enjoy them, Paul

Hi guys, about 2 minutes ago this blog hit 200,000 view since I started it in July. I started a competion to guess the day this would happen at the end of November.

New Subscriber Update

Hi guys, I have just sent out this weeks subscriber update, as I said yesterday there are alot more player apperances, new Thailand kits & some extra players added. Here are a few preview pics.

Have a great weekend, Paul

New Konami Patch Coming Next Week

Hi guys, just thought I would alert you all to the fact that there will be another Konami patch next Thursday (European time) v1.03, you can see some of what will be changed here in a very brief interview with Jon Murphy.

Looks like the main changes will relate to 2vs2 but the comment about added celebrations makes me think that along with the new patch we will also see Data Pack 3.00. This is just my opinion, but if it does come then that will mean some new boots & posssibly a few licensed NT kits updated.

This will mean that v1.6 of my OF will be released on the 22nd December with subscribers recieving their normal update on the 21st.

Cheers, Paul

Heads Up For Tomorrow's Subscriber Update

Hi guys, just thought I would give you all a heads up on what to expect in tomorrow's subscriber update. First up as always there are lots of player apperance updates both scans & builds & quite a few boot updates. Also the new Thailand NT kits are in & finally there have been a few more players added such as Townsend & Falque of Spurs.

Not a subscriber yet? Christmas is coming, why not treat yourself to the gift that keeps on giving (well until September) & treat yourself (or a friend) to a subscription to my OF.

Fianlly for today thank's to the guy who suggested Hernandez's hairstyle for Rafael, I tried it today & it works a treat, check my twitter feed for a picture.

Cheers, Paul

Online Community & Other Ramblings

Hi guys, I would like to know who would be interested in a online community for users of my OF? After comments from Gavin & Kakarot I think there may be interest for a community where we can all play fair online matches without constantly having to play Real Madrid or Barcelona every game.

I was thinking something along the lines of if you pick a team for a match, you can't use that team again for the next 4 matches so we seem some varation at least. Also it would be nice if you see someone pick a smaller team while you are still choosing then you also go for a smaller team.

Because there are people using this OF from all over the world obviously some lag may be experienced as not every country has access to the same internet speeds as others, what I do suggest though is if you know your internet is a bit slow, then only play when your PS3 is the only thing conected to the internet.

Disconnections can happen for various reasons, but if it can be proved that someone is using disconnection cheats then they will recieve a 2 week ban from the community & a complete ban if caught again.

I'm not sure exactly how it works, but if I am able to see all the results from the community then maybe I could try & get some prizes for the person with the best record at the end each month.

If you are interested let me know in the comments or via email.

Next up many of you would have watched the Manchester derby on Sunday & noticed Rafael's afro has been shaved into what to me looks like a Lego minifig hairstyle. Here are a few options I have tried.

Let me know your thought's on which looks best or any alternate options.

Finally for today Minh from Brisbane sent me a few videos so here thy are for you all to enjoy.

Cheers for reading, Paul

Catch Up

Hi guys, here's another random post with no real theme, just me wanting to let you know a few things & check if there is anything you all need or would like to see.

First up I have been bust adding more player apperances so far this week, I will try & get some pictures up either later today or tomorrow. As always let me know if there is a certain player or team you would like me to do.

Next up alot of you would have see the 200,000 Page View giveaway post here it is getting very close & I would be suprised if the number isn't hit by Sunday so get your votes in now if you haven't already.

Finally this one is just mainly for football fans in Australia, yesterday it was confirmed that Man Utd will be coming to Australia in July to play the A League All Stars at Sydney's ANZ Stadium. Tickets go on sale at 9am tomorrow I will be trying to get some as I haven't had chance to see them for a few years now. More info is avaliable here

Cheers, Paul

PES 2013 Online

Hi guys, I thought I would start a discussion about online play. I'm not a big fan of online in any game due to the large number of people who cheat just to get high rankings, this is not only in PES but almost all online games. Last year I played alot of MLO as it was a good way to build PES points to unlock everything from the shop but as this year everything is unlocked from the start I have only played one game online, & that was only because someone on my frien list sent me a invite. We had a good fair game with low ranking clubs & I lost 1-0.

How many of you play online? & how are you finding it? What modes do you play the most online? Also do any of you use the community mode? My main reason for asking this is Gavin posted a comment the other day saying he could never find a game in community mode so I would love to hear your thoughts.

Cheers, Paul

Editing Delay

Hi guys, no editing today due to this

I'm currently backing up my PS3 so I can replace the nearly full 250gb HD with my new 1tb HD :) Hopefully restoring the backup to the new HD won't take as long (I'm sure it didn't when I went from 40 to 250) & I will be able to get some more done tonight.

Cheers, Paul

Tuesday, 4 December 2012

Share Your Videos

Hi guys, due to all the time editing I don't have as many videos as I would like to share with you all, so I was thinking if you have any videos you have made from PES using my OF then you can send me them or the youtube links. I will then post them up on the blog for everyone else to enjoy.

Videos can be of anything, a great goal, a nice bit of tekkers or your ML/BAL team celebrating a trophy. If I get enough I may even set up a GOTM competition, email the videos or links to

Cheers, Paul

v1.5 Avaliable

Hi guys, I have just posted the links for v1.5 of my OF, It contains:

  • Lots of player face scans/builds
  • A few new kits & kit fixes
  • More players created
  • All English, French, Italian, Dutch, Spanish & German teams without a stadium have had their stadium name added & been assigned the closest default stadium.
Plus lots of other little tweaks. I suggest downloading & adding the latest Konami patch v1.02 befor adding this (although it's not vital). If you are a subscriber there in no need to add this as it doesnt contain anything that you don't already have.

Hope everyone is having a good weekend, Paul

Konami Patch v1.02 Now Out

Hi guys, I just downloaded the new Konami patch v1.02 its around 12mb in size.

 For any of you who have not seen what this patch addresses here is a rundown (credit to PESFan)


1) Fixes to the below issues. We would like to apologise for all inconveniences caused.

Master League Online
* The transfer fee and contract fee shown when signing a player is different to the one shown in the breakdown of such costs.
* Changes to the squad and the team funds were not reflect immediately when signing/releasing players or receiving gate receipts from matches played.

Master League
* Sometimes the game would freeze when items obtained in Master League Online were used.

Performance Training
* It was impossible to complete the "Long-pass" training when Pass Assistance level was set to either [0] or [1].
* It was impossible to complete the "Manual-pass" training when the cursor was set to "fixed" when using Personal Data other than "no.1".

* Sometimes the game would freeze when importing PES 2012 data. This applies to cases where implementing the data would result in players switching to wearing boots which were issued in PES 2012 Data Pack 3.

* When a new Data Pack was implemented, users were forced to restart their hardware as a message informing them of non-matching Data Pack versions would be displayed rendering some game features such as Master League Online, Competition and the Widget inaccessible.

2) The below additions due to customer requests:

* Users can now choose to enable or disable the Auto Save feature in game modes including Master League and Become a Legend by selecting [System] then [Auto Save] in order.

Football Life
* Players will wear boots which are unique to them in both Master League and Become a Legend. Any editing done to player's boot settings will also be reflected. However, please note that this only applies to save data created after the implementation of this patch file.
* Changes have been made to how teamwork levels between players increase.

3) General improvements to other modes to improve overall gaming experience.

The details of Patch 1.02 are as listed above.

In addition to these issues, we are also aware of the below.
the exact causes are currently under investigation:


1) Customers can be paired with users they added to the Match Block List.
2) Sometimes, the bonus prize money earned after a Special match can be shown as being 0.
3) In Inter-Community Matches, customers are sometimes unable to substitute COM controlled players.
4) If you play a 2 vs 2 match in Ranking match, but then try to play Master league Online and any other one player online matches without deleting the guest user, no matchmaking will take place.

Master League Online

5) After matches, customers may be returned back to the Online Main menu. An error message stating that an unexpected problem in communications with the PES 2013 server is then displayed.

For these issues, any updates will be posted on this site.
We can also report that the below issues were also fixed during maintenance on 13/11/2012

6) Courtesy level does not recover despite completing matches in the correct manner.

7) Special match bonuses could be earned in other types of matches.

200,000 Page View Giveaway

Hi guys, inspired by PES Fan's 10 mil;ionth post giveaway I thought I would do one of my own. Since starting the blog 4 months ago I have been suprised by the number of views it gets each day especially since PES 2013 was released.

As of now there have been 181,489 views, so the what I want you all to do is guess what date the blog will hit the 200,000 mark? post your guesses in the comments for a chance to win a subscription to my OF (if the winner is already a subscriber they will be refunded their payment). If more than one person selects the correct date the 1st person to post will be the winner, so check the comments before making your guess.

Anyone who is a member on PES Fan & is in the UK, I suggest you check this out as the prize is something money can't buy.

Cheers, Paul

v1.5 Coming On Satuday

Hi guys, as the new patch is out on Thursday I thought I would release v1.5 on Saturday just in case there are any compatibility issues (which there shouldn't be). Subscribers their update on Friday & v1.5 will contain everything that is in that plus what has been included in the last few subscriber updates.

What I would like to know is what would you most like to see in the update? I can't promise I will get everything you request done, but I will try my best.

Over to you guys, thanks for reading, Paul

Monday, 26 November 2012

Master League

Hi guys, even though I haven't played ML since PES 2011 (& not more than 1 or 2 seasons since 2008) I thought I would post this to find out a bit about how you all play & give you all a chance to discuss ML.

First up what teams do you all play as & do you start with the original lineups or the ML defaults? I have always played as Manchester Utd & as I have got older & started editing more I have always started with the original lineups. I think this is what has killed ML a bit for me as since it was introduced in PES 4 my interest has in the mode has wained & the introduction of BAL in PES 2009 finally finished it off.

Back when you were forced to start with the defaults I would play for season after season trying to replace the defaults with the actual Utd team plus & few favourites.

Anyway over to you guys, let me know your thoughts & if you have any videos send me them or the links & I will post them up on the blog.

Cheers, Paul

4th November Subscriber Update

Hi guys, I have just sent out this weeks subscriber update. It contains lots more player face scans/builds & I have fixed the kits for Everton (home), Mainz (home) & Brazil (home&away) so that they dont have the wrong colour on the sleeves when players where long sleeves.

What would subscribers like as their next exclusive? Millwall team import, Peterborough team import or another stadium pack? Let me know in the comments or via email.

Have a great weekend, Paul
