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 http://bit.ly/1u1mVuv
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.
