PES 2016 Editing Tip 2 - Creating Teams/Leagues

Hi guys, next tip for editing your own game is creating teams or leagues, a lot of this will also apply to general editing as well. Doing this is pretty straightforward like everything else, but it does take a lot of time, here are the basic tips...

1. Be Organized
I usually set up a few spreadsheets before I start. I have one for general notes & keeping track of things like kits or appearances I have done, I then also create separate spreadsheets for each league I create with a sheet for each team.

2. Use A USB Keyboard
When creating players or editing teams names you will need to do a lot of typing, you can do this using a controller, but if you plug in a USB keyboard you can type this information in much quicker.

These tips will help save time as well as help you keep track of what you have/haven't done.

Data Packs

Data packs are great for a lot of things like updating transfers, adding new boots or new player appearances, but they do cause some issues. Most things you edit will remain after each data pack but the following will be reset....

  • Player transfers
  • Player nationalities
  • League structure
  • Squad numbers
So you will keep kits, emblems, names, stats, appearances. What this means is that after every data pack you will need to move players back to the teams you put them in, so for Example if you create Dortmund who have a lot of their players already in the game you will need to transfer them back after each data pack. This is also true for any NT's where you may have replaced the fake duplicates with the real players.

Personally I wouldn't bother doing too much other than kits until after the 1st data pack on 29th October. On PS3 there is the import/export team option, you can export any teams you have created (20 at a time) then import them back in after the data pack.

Editing Leagues

There are 3 fake leagues inn PES that you can edit to create new leagues, one for Europe, one for America & one for Asia. These leagues are tied to those regions & have 20 teams each, you can change the number of teams to 14, 16 or 18 & the remaining teams will be moved to the "Other Teams" section for that region. It is also possible to move teams already in the game to these leagues, so for example when making the Bundesliga you can swap 3 fake teams for the 3 teams already in the game by going to "Edit League Structure".

Editing Teams

I won't go over adding kits or emblems as that is exactly the same as fixing those things for the unlicensed teams. Most the information you need will be on various PES forums or club websites, PES Gaming always has lots of league creation threads, some are better than others but they are all a great starting point. These threads will provide you with kits, formations, stats & appearances, for example the Bundesliga thread already has pretty much everything you need to create that league.

Besides forums these sites are also useful for finding player stats...

www.pesmaster.com (Has stats from previous PES games)
www.pesstatsdatabase.com (Has stats for 1000's of players, although they are a bit overrated)

You can also use other football games to make stats, I always use Football Manager, but you could also use FIFA. The stats aren't the same between games, but it gives you a good guide if you can't find them anywhere else.

That's about it, if you have any questions then post them in the comments & I will help where I can.

On a unrelated note, on 10th/11th October I will again be taking part in Relay For Life, a 24 hour walk for cancer research in memory of my Dad & my Father-in-law. If you can spare any money I would really appreciate any donations here 

Happy editing, Paul

How To Convert A PS3 Option File To A Different Region

Hi guys, here is the guide on how to convert a PS3 OF from one region to another, before I can give you a working link to Bruteforce I need all the region codes for PES 2016, so post them in the comments & as soon as I have them all (BLES/BLUS/BLAS/NPUB) I will upload a link to download a version that will work with PES 2016.

To find your region code copy the EDITDATA file from your PS3 & open it on your PC.

Bruteforce Download (Currently works with BLES/BLUS/BLAS/NPEB/NPUB/NPHB)

*Updated* Now works with BLES Euro 2016 version


  1. Download & extract the OF you want to convert
  2. Download & extract my version of Brutefoce
  3. Copy the EDITDATA file from your PS3 to a USB
  4. Open Bruteforce locate your EDITDATA & press "Update Account ID" & Choose Update Account ID & Copy Params
  5. Close Bruteforce & delete your EDITDATA from the USB
You will only need to do this once to set up Bruteforce to work correctly.


Here is a screenshot of what Bruteforce looks like so you can see where all the buttons are...

  1. Open Bruteforce & locate where the files are
  2. Select the first file & press Ctrl+i
  3. Type in your region code
  4. Highlight the code & press Ctrl+c to copy it, then press Enter
  5. Move to the next file & press Ctrl+i then Ctrl+c then Enter
  6. Keep doing step 5 until you have done every file
  7. Select all the convert files then press the "Verify PFD" button
  8. Close Bruteforce & copy the files to your PS3
That's about it, it is pretty easy, it just takes a long time if there are lots of files.

Enjoy, Paul

PES 2016 Editing Tip 1 - Adding Images

Hi guys, I still don't have the game as Konami have pushed back the release date here to Tuesday with no explanation. I thought though I would post my first tips on editing for those of you that want to do your own edits.


Once you have your images you copy them to a USB in a folder called "WEPES" then plug it into your PS4.

Start the game & go to edit mode & under data management there is a option to import images where you can copy the images from the USB to your PS4.

Still in edit mode go to teams then strip and then you can paste the correct image for each kit.

The process is exactly the same for team emblems & manager images.


Once you have your images you copy them to a USB in a folder called PS3/PICTURES then plug into your PS3.

Start your PS3 & go to Photos & copy the images to your PS3, then start the game.

Start the game & in edit mode go to teams then strip & for each kit you will need to import images for each part of the strip. As each part of the kit is a seperate image you will need to say yes when asked to overwrite the image.

As PS3 images don't cover the whole of the kit you will need to use some of the options in the game to make the kits look perfect.

There are plenty of images available on the sites I mentioned in my previous post, but these are the ones I will be using for my game http://www.pesuniverse.com/pes-2016-downloads/ there is only the Premier League, SkyBet Championship & Sassuola so far but lots more will be added in the next few days.

I will post more tips over the next few weeks, if there is anything you would like me to post tips on then let me know in the comments.

Happy editing, Paul

PES 2016 PS4 OF Sharing

Hi guys, I have been told that sharing of editing on PS4 is limited just to kits so at this stage there will be no OF's. This may change in the future if Konami or Sony find a solution, but for now I will just go back to editing the game for myself like I used to on PS2.

As I can't provide a OF I will instead make posts on how you can edit the game yourself by sharing tips & information. The best place to look for this is the various PES forums that are around, some of the ones I use are as follows....


as well as the partner sites PESHungary & WEBrothers that you can find on the side of the blog under partner sites. I will also post links to all the info that had been gathered by myself & the other guys I was planning to work this year that isn't posted anywhere else (although most of this will be on pesgaming & pesuniverse anyway.

That's about it for now, before anyone asks I won't be going back to PS3, but all the links provided should be able to point you to either PS3 OF's or the information to make your own. I will post some more once I have the game & have had time test out the new edit mode.

Cheers, Paul
