PES 2014 Option Final Plans & Schedule

Hi guys, today I will outline my plans for my PES 2014 OF. The game is released next week in Europe, is normally released in Australia the same week, this would mean the 19th. Both major game retailers have until recently had the Australian release date as the 26th and in the last few days have changed it to 3rd October. I never believe them when it comes to PES though as this kind of thing happens every year here, a few years ago they had the release date as early November when in fact it was released in early October. If however it is released later here, I will try to get it from the Playstation Store instead so I don't have too much catching up to do.

Now a little bit of bad news, I going away from 28th September until 5/6th October (poor planning I know) so won't get any editing done during that time, the good news is that I have the week before that off as well so providing I get the game next week I will be able to dedicate all my time in that week to editing.

My plan is to get at least the unlicensed stuff like League names/emblems, Team names/kits/emblems and the NT player names fixed within 2 to 3 days of getting the game so I can release v1.0, I will then start on creating the extra teams so everyone can start on ML/BAL. I will leave appearances until after that as Konami will be adding lots of new ones with DLC.

This year there will be no schedule for updates, I will just release them as and when I feel there is enough new content to justify it or after any DLC that messes the OF up. I will aim for at least one update a month though, and obviously they will be more regular at the start as I'm adding all the new things in.

The four editable leagues will be used for the following...

  • Europe - Bundesliga
  • South America - Liga MX
  • Asia - Indonesian Super League
  • Div 2 - Sky BET Championship
These were all pretty easy to pick except for Asia, personally I would prefer to add the J-League or even the A-League, but there are so many fans of my OF in Indonesia, Malaysia and Vietnam that I knew I would have to add one of them. Indonesia was chosen as outside of the UK that is where the majority of people who visit my blog or download my OF are.

Now just as a small thing I want to point out after comments about the extra NT's I added for 2013, the Indonesian League is a weak league so the players will have pretty poor stats, also the appearances will probably all just be the correct skin color and hairstyle. If any Indonesians are not happy with that then I will make the J-League or A-League instead.

Now as none of the three leagues are 20 teams there will be a few teams left over that should go into the other teams sections for each region. There will be 5 from Europe (as 3 Bundesliga teams are already in the game) which will be used to create the four missing CL teams Austria Wien, Basel, Steaua Bucuresti and Viktoria Plzen. The fifth team will be Dinamo Zagreb.

There will be a least 2 from South America, possibly more if the in game teams from the Libertadores mode can be moved into the league, I haven't decided what teams to use these for yet, but they will be South American teams not already in the game.

There will be 4 from Asia, they will be used to make 2 A-League teams, 1 Malaysian team and 1 Vietnamese team that are not already in the game.

I will again update player appearances, but as I said earlier I probably won't do any until I have got all these extra teams created, but rest assured plenty will get done throughout the year.

This has turned into a much longer post than I thought it would, but finally at this stage it is unknown if there will be a converter that enables the use of PC editing tools although I expect there will be, it just may not happen for a few months. This means that I can't say what hidden extra things that may be in the game I will be able to edit and it also means that there may be no way to convert my OF to BLUS or Xbox. As soon as I have any news on this I will let you all know.

Have a great weekend, Paul

  1. wha? IPL? how generous are you Paul! i'm from Indonesia and love football, but soooooo lack update about my own country competiition except my local club which have a player that known by Indonesian Messi here (Andik Vermansyah from Persebaya 1927)

    But the most urgent like correct unlicensed stuff already you stated above, and guess what? likely i won't buy my PES until you launch your v 1.0, will stay for my PES13 (with your 2.8 OF off course! ) for a while...

    2. Paul...whyyyyy....Indonesian league?? If the stats not even close to 70 average, will they play those teams? Or maybe just putting CR7 onto the team? (euww).
      Btw I am Indonesian in Oz but prefer A League or J League like yourself..Is there any chance you will make alternate version with A/K/J League for yourself? If yes, please share it with me!

    3. As I have said mate, it is just because outside of the UK most users of my file are from Indonesia. Most other OF makers will add leagues like the J-League so I thought I would do something different. The main file I release will be what I use myself, in a few months I may make extra teams/leagues for people to import depending on time.

    1. No subscriptions for PES 2014 mate, as I said a few weeks ago doing weekly updates was fun, but it was hard being tied down to making sure there was enough new content each week. This year will be updates for everyone whenever I think there is enough new content to warrant it ;)

  12. hey paul just wanted to start off by saying i loved your file last year.
    I was wondering if the import team function is still in 2014 and if it would be easy to implement the k-league, j-league or Chinese super league instead of the indonesian league (no offence any indonesians here =])using your file as a base.
    thanks for any info.

    1. Glad you enjoyed the 2013 OF. Import function will be added via a Konami patch mate. Once it is there it will be the same as any other year when it comes to importing teams.

  13. Paul, I have nothing against Indonesian league or people but why don't you consider better Asian leagues? Saudi Arabia, Qatar or UAE all have better league with better and known players players. So maybe you should give it a second thought!

    Replies
    1. As I said personally I would prefer the J-League or A-League my reason for the Indonesian league is outside of the UK most users of my 2013 file were from Indonesia.

      The best thing this year is with these extra leagues every OF maker has a chance to do something different. In previous years both my OF WENB's & GTM's have both featured the same leagues & it has been down to personal choice as to which people use. This year there will be a lot more variation as we each choose different leagues.

  14. great.. indonesian league!!!
    but Indonesian Super League is far more popular and competitive than indonesia premier league... trust me. indonesian people would prefer ISL than IPL.
    thanks for considering our league paul.

  17. Hello,

    I think you would be add the five europeens teams:

    Fenerbache
    Besiktas
    Dinamo Kiev
    Spartak Moscow
    Dinamo Zagreb

    They are all in the Pes 2013.

    1. They are good options, but it will be the 4 missing CL teams plus Dinamo Zagreb mate.

  19. Hey paul, i think you should seriously consider adding top teams of other Asian leagues, rather than just adding the entire Indonesian league so that we will have more variety, and more fans from different Asian countries (such as myself) will get a chance to play a team from their country.

    You can maybe add 2 top teams from each leagues from Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand, and such. I think it's more fair, and will add a lot more depth in the AFC Champions league! Teams which i personally wish you could include would be Lions XII (Malaysia Super League Champion 2013), Tampanies Rovers (Singapore League), and Warriors FC (Singapore League).

    1. Sorry mate I don't like mixed leagues as they are not realistic. There will be plenty of option files out there this year offering different leagues.

      Depending on time I may even do extra leagues later in the year ;)

      Delete
    2. Hi Paul, I understand, as you dont wanna spoil the realism of football. May i suggest adding in the AFC Cup instead? It is like the Europa League of Europe, where top teams who couldnt qualify for AFC Champions League plays. I think it will be a perfect fit for your option file!

      You can check out more info here! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2013_AFC_Cup

      It will make AFC Champions League, and Master League a lot more fun, with a lot more depth on the Asian side.

      Delete
    3. Again though it will be unrealistic as it will be a league made up of teams from various countries. I'm sorry but it is going to be the Indonesian Super League

    1. Hi mate, as I said I won't be worrying about appearances until everything else is done. Konami will be adding lots of faces through DLC & I would be surprised if they aren't 2 of the first ones to get proper faces ;)

  21. yay... good plan though, can't wait the OF for this new games. Btw paul for ps3 which version will you use for the OF? BLES or BLUS ? so no need to convert again.

    thanks

    1. Probably best just to start a practice one for now, as if you add my OF then continue a ML you have already started the team names, kits & player names will update, but the player stats, nationality & position will stay the same as the default players I use to create them mate

  25. What..? Are you serious?! The Indonesian League?! Your option file were the best out there for PES 2013, but I will probably find another one for PES 2014.. :( I want 3 European leagues instead of an Ansian and South American. And I don't ever play Master League or anything like that, so that won't be a problem for me.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Sorry to hear that mate, I would prefer 3 Euro leagues as well, but as they are fixed for ML/BAL it will be one from each region. Every option file maker I have spoken to is doing one from each region as well, so you will most likely need to mix & match various files using team import/export once it is added back into the game ;)

      Delete
    2. If that's the case, I will for sure use your OF ;) And I'll probably make the entire Danish league and overwrite the Indonesian.

    3. Sounds like a good idea mate ;)

  26. Thanks for all your efforts, very nice job, I haven't tried your OF yet but regarding comments I know it will be excellent! Just want to know if you are planning to add J-League in the future or in a separate OF, thanks again mate
