Some News & Some Help Needed

Hi guys, I thought I would update you all on my progress as well as ask for some help regarding the final version of this years option file.

Some Help
In order to fix the ML issue I had to export all the teams I had edited since v2.8 & import them back in, this has mean't that almost all kits and emblems have changed position meaning the final update will include every file. Converting 700+ files to BLUS and BLAS takes quite a few hours so I'm looking for a couple of people who know how to do this to do it for me. I obviously don't expect this to be done in one go when the final update is ready, so anyone who takes this on will receive the OF as it is now to convert everything and then receive the updated files as I do them.

This means if you are happy to do it you will get the updates before anyone else, if you are interested in doing this then email me at paulc2478@gmail.com.

Final Update (v3.1)
The transfer window closes for most leagues on 2nd September and I'm going away for a week or so on 6th September so the final update will most likely be released on the 5th. Since the last update I have updated 100's more transfers and with the help of Bhattu Krishna have updated more kits and will continue to do so up until release. I will also do my best to fix up the line ups for as many teams as possible as well as add some other things. The transfers page was update a day or two ago so if you think I'm missing any non-European transfers then let me know.

What Happens Next
Once I back from my trip I will make a announcement about my plans for PES 2015, I don't have a PS4 yet so at the moment anything I decide to do for it will be for PS3. Normally I stop editing in September as the new game is released at the end of the month, but this year as PES 2015 isn't coming out until November I thought I would do something extra.

As I have previously posted in October I will be taking part in Relay For Life, a 24 hour walk to raise money for cancer research. I was asking for a AU$50 donation for teams, but I understand this was a bit to high, so instead I have come up with these....

AU$20 - I will create any team not in the OF for you that can be imported over any unlicensed team including kits, emblem and correct players with correct stats and at least the correct skin colour/hairstyle and accessories.

AU$5 - I will fix the appearances for every player for any team in the OF with at least the correct skin colour/hairstyle and accessories.

Donations can be made here http://fundraising.cancer.org.au/site/TR/RelayforLife/CCNSW?px=1018858&pg=personal&fr_id=1860 Once you have made your donation send me a email with the team you want and I will let you know when to expect it. If you want to donate but can't make it through that link then email me and I will give you a alternate way to donate.

That's about it for now.

Cheers, Paul

The ML Issue

Hi guys, I had a break from editing yesterday and today I started to test some solutions to the problem of European teams appearing in the Copa Libertadores and South American teams in the Champions/Europa Leagues. I thought maybe the issue was that Betis played in the Europa League last year so I just put them back, but it made no difference to the Copa Libertadores. Next I tried putting all the teams back, this again made no difference so finally I took v2.8 & switched all the teams except Betis and again the problem continued.

So this means that I won't be able to include all the promoted teams unfortunately without breaking the game. I still have a spare South American team so I will use them to create one of the promoted Argentinian teams (probably Banfield). In the non-licensed leagues I can create Koln and Paderborn for the Bundesliga and Moreirense for the Liga Zon Sagres they will just replace the existing teams of Nurnburg, Eintracht Braunschweig and Olhanense instead of being new teams.

The Premier Leagues teams have no issues as they were all already in the the OF and the same goes for the Brazilian and Liga MX teams. It will be a bit of work for me to fix the issues, but shouldn't impact on anything else.

Cheers, Paul

v3.0 Out Now

Hi guys, v3.0 can now be downloaded, links are on the downloads page. It contains.....

J-League
The J-League has been added to the OF with full squads and 2014 kits for most teams, the licensed teams kits can't be updated, but I will fix up the last couple unlicensed teams in the next update. In this version 4 ISL teams replace the licensed J-League teams in the ACL. Big thanks to Erik Durm for doing this for me as well as Muta who's 2013 teams Erik used as a base for the teams.

ISL
If you want to keep the ISL instead of the J-League then there is a second download, add the v3.0 update first then the ISL one. You will have everything else that is new in v3.0, but keep the ISL.

Promoted Teams
Caen, Willem II and Paderborn now have there correct players, remaining teams will be done in the final update, unless....

ML Issue
Some people have reported that European teams are appearing in the Copa Libertadores and South American teams in the Champions League. I gave it a try and got a few European teams in the Copa Libertadores, I don't know exactly what is causing this yet, but it may be due to moving hidden teams into the game. If it is then I will have to remove the promoted teams and put back the original teams.

Kits
Remaining PL kits have been done (West Brom away, Newcastle 3rd & Leicester). There are also a few other kits added and some others that have been improved. Big thanks to Bhattu Krishna again for doing a lot of them for me.

Player Appearances
I have added a few more player appearances, these are all for players I have created. Erik has told me that every J-League player has a appearance, but I haven't had time to check if they are just correct hairstyle and skin colour of full appearances. Once I do I will update the index.

Transfers
Lots more transfers have been done, I have updated the transfers page with everything I'm aware of. Most of these are done, but some still won't be due to squads being full or needing to create the player. I still haven't gone through the Ligue 1 or Other European Teams from Duck No.99's amazing transfers page yet and I would still like help from all of you regarding non European transfers.

Team Lineups
Just like the last update they are still messed up sorry, Again I suggest these quick solutions for the problem...

  • When playing ML/League modes fix your line up in the menu at it will be correct for each match.
  • If you use a team a lot in Exhibition mode then fix the line up in edit mode so it is correct each time.
They will all be fixed in the final update.

That's about it, I hope you all enjoy it and let me know if there are any issues.

Have a great weekend, Paul

V3.0 & the J-League

Hi guys, I have been away over the weekend, so sorry for the slow replies to your questions. This also means I'm only just starting to look at the work Erik has sent me for the J-League and I know he had a few issues regarding space for kits I need to fix. I will know later tonight how much work I need to do and will update this post as I go.

Due to the number of kits some teams may lose their 3rd kits to make space for the J-League kits as well as the kits I need to add for the promoted teams. As Erik has finished quicker than I expected I probably won't have completed all the players for the promoted teams for the release of v3.0, but hopefully I will be pretty close.

There will be other things included such as more new kits and lots more transfers as well. As I said this post will be updated through tonight as I add Erik's work and I will aim to release v3.0 on Tuesday or Wednesday.

*Update*
Just a quick update, I still have to fix a few more J-League kits so release will be delayed until tomorrow or Friday. Hopefully I will be done by tomorrow night, just depends on how long it takes to convert all the files once I'm done, but either way you will all have it for the weekend.

Cheers, Paul

v2.9 Out Now

Hi guys, v2.9 is now ready for download, it includes.....

Promoted Teams
Koln have their new kits, some teams have last seasons kits and some have no kits yet, I have added emblems for as many teams as possible, but can't do the rest due to the emblem limit. Koln, Cesena, Empoli, Palermo, Cordoba, Deportivo La Coruna and Eibar have the correct players (still some transfers to do), the remaining teams either have some players sone or none at all. Hopefully by the time Erik has finished the J-League I will have them all complete.

Relegated Teams
They have all been moved to the hidden teams so will still appear at random in ML/BAL. The licensed teams still have correct names, emblems and kits, the unlicensed teams (Nurnburg, Braunshweig, Olhanense) still have the correct kits, but default names and emblems. All teams still have the correct players and will continue to have transfers done as they happen.

Kits
There are lots of new kits, a big thanks again to Bhattu Krishna for doing a lot of them for me. All Premier League teams have new home, away and gk kits (except West Brom away) as well as some 3rd kits. All Bundesliga teams have new home, away and gk kits as well as some 3rd kits. There are also quite a few Championship team kit updates as well as some other teams. Hopefully by the next update the remaining kits will be done, please remember this excludes licensed teams as there is no way to update their kits.

Transfers
I have done lots more transfers although not all are done yet. I have updated my list & will continue working through Duck No.99's list of European transfers. No need to let me know of any European transfers, but I still need your help with other teams. No squad numbers have been fixed as yet.

Team Lineups
Most are still messed up sorry, I started doing them, but decided it I was wasting my time as there are still a lot of transfers to be completed. Here are a few quick solutions for the problem...

  • When playing ML/League modes fix your line up in the menu at it will be correct for each match.
  • If you use a team a lot in Exhibition mode then fix the line up in edit mode so it is correct each time.
Player Appearances
There are a few more player appearances added, mainly Koln players, you can see which ones have been added on the player appearances page.

There are probably a few other things that I have forgotten and if you have any issues let me know.

Enjoy, Paul

v2.9 News

Hi guys, I thought I would update you all on the progress of v2.9 so here goes....

There are lots of new kits done, Almost all Premier League kits are done and the same goes for the Bundesliga, there are also lots of new kits for the Championship teams as well as a few others. Hopefully I will get a few more done in the next few days. A big thanks to Bhattu Krishna who has done a lot of them for me so I can concentrate on other things. Remember licensed teams can't be updated so there will be no new kits for Manchester Utd, Bayern, etc.

There will be loads of transfers done, I have just updated my transfers page & I'm still working my way through Duck No.99's excellent list of European transfers. Hopefully I will get as many done as possible before the update is released, but anything that is missing will be done for the final update. Again thanks to all of you who have pointed out transfers to me.

My main priority is creating all the players for the promoted teams, I have a few teams 95% done, but there is still plenty to do. What I would like to know is if I don't finish them all by the weekend would you still like me to release what is done?

Erik Durm is still working hard on the J-League and if he is done by the weekend then I will release two versions on all formats. One with the J-League and one with the ISL, if he isn't done by the time I'm ready to release v2.9 then I will release a extra update as soon as he is finished.

That's about it for now.

Cheers, Paul

Transfers Again

Hi guys, I have disabled editing on the transfers spreadsheet as people have continued to mess with the sorting & I keep having to double check I haven't missed things that have been added. This means I will go back to the way I have done this in previous years, you can post anything I'm missing either in the comments on spreadsheet, on here or if you have a large amount you can email them to me at paulc2478@gmail.com I will then add them to the list.

Thanks again to everyone who is adding transfers as it's a massive help.

Cheers, Paul

Transfers

Hi guys, thanks to those of you who have been adding to the transfers page here https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1hRs7_-vtQz82ppJlx8PAEd2cXKY8dZtLNxyOe7Jbn8w/edit?usp=sharing I would just like to point out a few things so I don't miss anything....

  • Please don't mess with the formatting or sorting.
  • When adding transfers please add them to the bottom or type them in a different colour so I can see what has been added.
  • Please don't forget to add links.
  • Please remember to add full names, not just surnames.
  • Don't add loans where the player has gone to a team not in the game.
Cheers, Paul

Moving Forward

Hi guys, a little later than planned here is what to expect in future updates to my OF.

2014/15 Kits
I will continue to add the new kits for all the unlicensed teams, unfortunately there is no way to edit the kits for the licensed teams.

Promoted Teams
I will be adding the promoted teams for all leagues, the Liga Zon Sagres has expanded to 18 teams and I don't think there is any way I can increase the size of the league (but I will try). If I cant then I will just add Moreirense. I will be using the fake hidden teams to create the new teams, so the original teams will remain in the game as hidden teams. The licensed teams will keep there name, emblem, kits and players, but the unlicensed teams will only have their kits and players. There names and emblems will revert to default.

Duplicate Teams
When the Copa Libertadores 2014 was added it created some duplicate teams, I have already removed the duplicate Atletico Nacional and I will use the duplicate Deportivo Cali to create one of the promoted Argentinian or Chilean teams. Unfortunately I can't move the three Mexican teams to the Liga MX and they can't be edited, so I thought the best solution would be to remove the duplicate players and just put some free agents in the teams instead so there isn't two of the same player.

Player Appearances
I will continue to update the appearances of as many players as possible.

Transfers
I will continue to update transfers and this is where you all come in. Here is a list of every transfer I'm aware of https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1hRs7_-vtQz82ppJlx8PAEd2cXKY8dZtLNxyOe7Jbn8w/edit?usp=sharing If you know of any others you can add to the bottom of the list & I can review it each day. Please add a link with each one and the squad number if you know it. Reputable links only please such as the buying or selling clubs website, no rumours or sites like Goal.com.

J-League
Currently Erik Durm is working on creating the J-League in place of the ISL, once he is done I will release two versions of my OF after each update, one with the ISL and one with the J-League.

Cheers, Paul

v2.8 Out Now

Hi guys, v2.8 is out now for BLES/BLUS/BLAS, it contains...

Data Pack Fixes
I have defaulted all the stats for the WC players. I have also defaulted the appearances for a few players I had edited that got a preset face in the last data pack such as Lamert (England) & Ospina (Colombia). I have also fixed the name issue with some more Copa Libertadores 2014 players, I thought they would all be done for this update, but I ran into a few issues. Thanks to bhattu krishna for helping me work out what was going on.

Player Appearances
There are 30+ new player appearances added, most are World Cup players. You can see the new ones by checking the player appearances page.

Promoted Teams
I have added Leones Negros to the Liga MX in place of the relegated Atalante. Atlante have been moved to the other Latin American Teams, more info will be posted on regarding this.

Transfers
I havent done any more transfers since v2.7 other than the players needed for Leones Negros. As with the promoted teams I will be posting info about transfers very soon.

Kits
New kits for Arsenal (home & away), Aston Villa (home,away,gk),. Chelsea (home,away,3rd,gk) & Liverpool (home,away,3rd,gk) have been added. /more to come in future updates.

Enjoy, Paul
