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

  2. One thing I didn't understand is if this: I have renamed some players from Grêmio (Brasil), and, if the DLC doesn't update them, will the names still be corrected or will they be default after DLC? If they are back to default, how to correct them without having to correct one by one?

    1. Names won't be defaulted they will stay as you edited them

  3. dear Paul,

    can you please put a full guide regarding the color of the number and name for each customized kits. I think we need to adjust the color of the kits manually as well because I havent found any file that change the color of the customized kits.

    1. I usually just make the name & number the same color as the other markings on the kit. So if the kit has a black Nike logo I make the name & number black

  4. Paul, if I correct a Brazilian team names, export it, and then download an OF, when I import the team again will the DLC get applied to it?

    ReplyDelete

    1. If the import is done before the DLC then yes. If you import it after then it will overwrite any changes. Personally I would wait until after the DLC before correcting the Brazilian player names as quite often some of them get fixed by Konami anyway.

      Delete
    2. Man, I'm really confused. My last doubt: if I correct the names before the DLC, when it comes will it get the correct names as default (maybe corrected) and add new players or if I correct the names the DLC won't get applied to these players? Thx for replying, I want to start ML...

      Delete
    3. If you correct names they will remain after the DLC whether Konami update them or not. Don't export/import & any DLC changes will be applied to those teams.

    1. If you base copy them in the created players then the faces will stay after the DLC.

  6. Hi Paul,

    1. Hi mate, it isn't possible to combine 2 OF's. If you add a OF you will lose any changes you have made.

  7. Hey Paul, I decided to do a custom GK kit for all NT (Nike, Adidas, New Balance, Umbro and Puma) just like you did in your last OF to save spots. Unfortunately, I can't add the flag of the nation after importing the image. Any trick in that or impossible on PS4?

    1. You can't on PS4 as adding the image replaces everything else.

  8. Hey mate, did you authorized this guy named Rich in ebay? He was selling your previous option file under his name. I am pretty sure those option file was copied

    1. Hi mate, no I didn't. People are always selling my OF's on ebay, nothing I can do about it.

  9. Paul, I was wondering, how can I import teams from your pes 2015 option files into pes 2016 on ps3? For example, I want to import Steaua Bucharest from your pes 2015 OF, with all the player stats and all, but don't know how. Could your respectable knowledge guide me, good Sir?

    1. Mate, I didn't think you can transfer a team from one game to another... But Paul will be sure about it.

      Delete
    2. No you can't transfer teams form one game to another unfortunately

  10. Hey Paul, can you give me a suggestion about using the kit slots and the others for import? There aren't enough to do every single team with home, away and gk, so I would like to hear your ideas to use them. Please tell me the most important teams and which I can pass by as you do this year :)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yeah the PS4 has nowhere near enough slots, personally I'm going to concentrate on the European teams has those are the leagues I will use the most. Also don't bother with manager images as every 10 of those means 1 less kit.

  11. Paul, I downloaded an OF for ps3, but, when I copy, it says that i will not be able to Wim trophys again. What should I do?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Ignore it mate, sometimes that message will appear, but you will still be able to win trophies. The only thing that stops you winning trophies is if you copy someone else's systemdata or save game.

  12. paul is there a different between pes2015 to pes2016 stats?

    Will this also happen with the roster update for offline ML mode 29 october everything back to default fabric status.I know you write about it but this is what i experienced

    1. Hi mate, it should be as I said. When you use the Live Updates things default just as they do when playing online. This doesn't happen with the data packs, the only things that default are the things I mentioned.

  14. Hi Paul,

    Thnx it takes a while but i get now haha there is a difference between live update and datapacks.
    Thnx Paul

  17. Hi Paul,
    if the official have the new OF update, is it affects the OF that I am using now?
    because I am using other OF that have the new kits. THANKS

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi mate, it depends on what is in the OF you are using. Kits/emblems/team names will remain after the official update. The things that mess up will be the same as happened in previous years with my OF's. The best thing to do is ask the person who has made the OF if they plan to update it after the data pack ;)
