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.

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

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

Other than PES What Shoul I Play?

Hi guys, I thought I would post somethin a little off topic. As I have got older, with other responsibilities I have bought alot less games so haven't had a pile of shame for a while , but since signing up for Playstation Plus in May I now have one :)

I am looking for which games I should look at playing or perserviring  1st from the games on my PS3. Before PES 2013 was released I played alot of Infamous 2 but havent touched it a while & I have played alot of Just Cause 2. However I have either not played or barely played Outlander, Dues Ex, Crysis 2, Resident Evil 5, Rachet & Clank 1-4, Double Dragon Zeon, Scott Pilgrim,
Dead Space 2, Boderlands, Bulletstrom or any of the other games released on plus.

I'm not a big 1st person shooter fan but will play them, I usually enjoy sports games or open world games like GTA, which is why I have played alot of Just Cause. I don't really enjoy online gaming, but do play a bit.

What do you think I should give a bit of time to? (PES editing will still be my main thing)

Cheers, Paul

A Few Random Bits Of Info

Hi guys, just thought I would let you all know that later today I will be creating a new page on the blog containing all the info on player faces such as which scan belongs to which player & info on what teams I have updated every players face for.

Also a few people have discovered a way to add beards to players with preset faces without losing the preset. It's takes about 10 minutes to do one player as it involves starting a BAL & using base copy, so I don't want to do hundreds of these but will do a few. Any suggestions? I was thinking Mata & Pirlo.

I finished the 3rd season of my BAL on Monday & after 3 seasons at NEC I thought it was time for a change so accepted a offer from Fulham. After starting the 1st game on the bench, I've started (& finished) every game since a manged to score my 1st goal for them in my 4th apperance, here it is..

A pretty scrappy goal, but a goal none the less.

Thanks for reading, Paul

What Type Of Content Would You Like On The Blog

Hi guys, hope you all had a good weekend. I like to try & give you all something interesting to read on the blog & discuss in the comments. What I would like to know is besides the current content such as pictures & asking for suggestions what else would you like to see?

Would you like me to post my thoughts, info, tips the various game modes? How about my thoughts on the weekends real life games? Or maybe something else that you think would be good, let me know in the comments.

Cheers, Paul

Blog Comments

Hi guys, I just wanted to post about the comments on the blog. I love hearing from you all whether it is things you would like to see in the OF or just saying thanks. However today for the 1st time since I created the blog I had to delete some comments that included swearing & derogatory comments about other OF users.

Please keep all comments clean & respect each other. We may support different teams, but we are all united though PES, light hearted banter is ok but please no abuse.

Also it would be good if less of you posted anonymously, if you add your name I can tell if I'm speaking to the same person.

On a slightly different note, you have probably noticed a few ads on the blog over the last few days. Please let me know if you follow up on any of these offers & it turns out to be dodgy. I have tried to only select reputable companies for the ads & from what I have looked at all the links seem fine.

If you have any issues with comments aimed at you or problems with the ads please email me at

Cheers, Paul

Subscriber Update & Konami Patch

Hi guys, I have just sent out the link for this weeks subscriber update. It contains lots more player face scan/builds & I have updated Anfield to fix the issue with the large banners. There are also a few more players added & probably other things I have forgotten I have done.

Also it has been revealed that there will be a patch coming in early December that will address some issues with online play (sorry I didn't fully read those bits as I rarely play online). The best things that will be included for me though are the following.

The new patch will allow us to turn off auto save while playing ML or BAL. I know this has been a big issue for alot of you especially in ML so it will be a welcome return to the game.

The other welcome return is that the patch will stop players wearing random boots in ML & BAL, & they will instead wear the boots they have been assigned in edit mode like previous years. I don't know if this only applies to AI controlled teams/players or to your ML team as well. This means that for future updates I will concentrate more than I have been on updating player boots like in previous years. You will need to restart your ML/BAL after the patch for this to kick in though.

I'm only guessing here, but there will most likely be another data pack around this time aswell, in previous years Konami have released one in December containing new boots.

For all the details  have a look here

Have a great weekend, Paul

Who Do You Support?

Hi guys, a 2nd post to day :) I would like to know what teams you all support as it will give me a idea of which players I should concentrate on updating the faces for, rather than you all requesting individual players.

Jailbroken PS3's, PES & My OF

Hi guys, I thought I would make a post about jailbroken PS3's as there has been a few comments on here aswell as in my threads on PESfan & PESGaming. First off although I can see why people jailbrake their PS3's it is not something I recommend or condone.

How it effects PES
Most jailbrake software either stops access or gets you banned from the PSN, this means you are unable to download the Data Packs IG, which in turn means you cant use my OF as it needs the latest data pack (or at least the 1st for the earlier versions). The data packs can't be added any other way so although you can get the latest game patches you can't get the thing you really need.

A Better Option
Although their are other reasons such as being able to install linux & homebrew software I'm sure the reason most people jailbrake their PS3's is to use pirated games. Again I don't condone this but know that alot of people can't afford to buy games all the time as they can be expensive (me included). If you want to get the most out of PES & have other games to play for a reasonable price I suggest signing up to Playstation Plus. You get 3 or 4 free games a month & which is more than enough for anyone, I have a backlog of games on my PS3 that I have either nor played or hardly played since I signed up in May.

It's also pretty cheap, in Australia it's $69.95 for a year (I think) which is less than the cost of one new release game. The games might be a year or two old, but if you havent already played them it's great, I have downloaded around 30 games & the only one I already owned was Red Dead Redemption, but it means I can use my original as a trade in.

On a lighter note....
Ok preach over, here are a few previews of some player faces that will be in this weeks update, also I hope to have a stadium pack for subscribers either tomorrow or Friday.

Online Pass Issues

Hi guys, I know some of you have had trouble registering your online passes, I know there are some issues so I will try to explain your options.

Just to let you know I just activated mine without any problems I entered the code & downloaded the 100kb file that activates it.

First off when entering your code make sure the letters are capitals, if you use lower case you will get the invalid message.

If it still doesn't work a you know the code hasn't been used before then contact Konami Europe here

Fill out the info & someone should get back to you.

Hopefully this helps, if I find out any more info, I will edit this post.

Cheers, Paul

AIK Team Import

Hi guys, I have just sent out the latest team import which is AIK, here are a few preview pictures

I struggled finding pictures of the kits, I know the home is ok, but I'm not sure on the away & for the GK I have used the current standard Adidas template. Any AIK fans out there let me know if I need to make adjustments.

The next team will be Barnsley, but before that I will be creating a stadium pack for subscribers including some of the PL stadiums that didn't make the OF, plus some of the other stadiums I considered for the OF & some Championship stadiums.

Missing Kit Logo's, League Logo's, etc

Over the last few weeks there have been a lot of people saying they are missing things such as kit logo's, so to save repeating myself I thought I would post this as advice to everyone & link it to the FAQ's page aswell.  This is mainly for when you are adding the full file, but also applies to some of the larger updates.

When you access your USB drive on your PS3 you need to give it chance to load all the files in before copying. You can tell when everything is loaded in as instead of a gery icon with a spining circle you will see the kit, face, banner, etc. Once this has happened you can select all the files & copy them to your PS3.

Just to give yo a idea after v1.4 the latest full file contains 740 files, if you start copying to your PS3 & it is showing less than this then it's best to cancel the copy & try again.

Hope this helps you all, Paul

Here are a few pics

This Weeks Update

Hi guys, I have just sent out this weeks subscriber update, it contains more player face scans/builds & a few updated kits such as the new Montenegro kits.

Also I have updated the stadiums & added the names for all Premier League, League 1 & Eredivisie teams that dont have a IG or created stadium. This adds to the Liga Zon Sagres, Bundesliga & Championship teams I had already done this for.  I will do the same for Serie A, Brazilian League & the Other European Teams for the next update.

Here are a few preview pictures...

There are is no doubt a few other things I have forgot I've done that are included.
Have a great weekend, Paul

Player Apperances & General News

Hi guys, I've posted up a few new pictures & a new video on the relevant pages.

I have finished all the apperance requests that I have a Scan or Build for so you can all request again, rememember non subscribers can post 1 request in the comments section & subscribers can request 3 players via email.

Aswell as your requests I'm still working through updating the apperances of the created players that haven't been done. I would like to know what you would all prefer in regards to how I continue this, here are the options:

  1. Do the players I have a Scan/Build for 1st
  2. Make sure the players I don't have a Scan/Build for have correct hairstyle/skin color
  3. A mixture of both working through 1 team at a time
I would also like to know which is more important, the Championship or Bundesliga players?

Let me know your thoughts.

Cheers, Paul

My Become A Legend Tips

Hi guys, I thought I would share my tips for BAL with you all as when I actually play the game it is the mode I play the most. First of I have to say it is not a mode for everyone as you have much less control than other modes, but I love it & have hardly touched the other game modes since it was introduced in PES 2009. I always start out as a AM, as you get to attack a lot without being stuck up front like when you play as a CF.

Use Player Cam
Personally I have always used the player cam as it makes the game feel different & makes it more of a challenge. It can take a while to get used to, but with practice it is great as you really feel part of the action. When you start out & when you sign for a new team you need to rely on the pitch map to see where to pass, but after a while you can play "blind" passes as you know the runs your teammates will make.

I play on Superstar for the challenge, your teammates will play to Professional skill level on Professional or below, but on Top Player they will play to Top Player & on Superstar they play to Superstar.

Don't Transfer All The Time
The longer you spend at one club the more your teammates will get used to you & play more intelligently. If you keep moving clubs every 6 or 12 months your teamwork stat will take a hit & this means your teammates are more likely to play bad passes or not pass at all. Personally I never move in January as I find it hard to break into the 1st team & it always seems like a waste of half a season.

Don't Call For Passes
I have found that when you call for passes your teammates will make stupid passes to find you, instead try & get yourself into space & they will pass to you anyway most of the time, especially after you have proved yourself. Sometimes you will still find yourself charging into the box & don't receive the cross you would expect but that is just like real football.

Think Before Accepting A Transfer
Before transferring to a new club check their formation, if you are a WF & they don't play with one, then you will find yourself on the bench & being played out of position when you do get to play. Try to learn more positions so you have more options.

Don't Be Too Selfish
Although it can be frustrating to play a teammate in only for them to miss, it helps with teamwork if you keep at it, & if you do it enough you will reap the rewards.

Use R2
In PES 2013 pressing R2 just before receiving a pass makes it easier to control the ball, this is especially when you 1st start out & may have poor ball control, practice in training mode to learn how to use it.

That's about all I can think of at the moment, although I will edit this as I think of more things. I finished my second season yesterday playing for NEC Nijmegen, I will give them 1 more season I think before making my 1st transfer, unless something good comes up in August.

Hope you all find this useful, Paul

1st Novemeber Subscriber Update

Hi guys, I have just sent out the latest subscriber update so check your inboxes.

As always there are lots more player apperance fixes both scans & builds.

I have also done a few transfers such as McFadden to Sunderland & some of the long term loans to Championship sides.

I'm away again this weekend, but will have internet access so will keep checking in to answer any questions.
