Tutorial - how to merge CPK files

Merging multiple cpk files into one:

in this tutorial we are going to merge multiple cpk files into one file in case you want to arrange your customized files or you need to free up extra slots, in this example, we are going to merge the four face cpk files into one cpk that contains all four faces.


1. Locate the extra CPK files:

Open the download folder of the game and locate the extra cpk files

Locate the extra CPK


2. Drag and drop the CPK file in the CRI file maker:

download CRI packed file maker v2.40.13 and run the tool, drag and drop SMk_extra1.cpk into the tool, you should see a face cpk file inside the tool window

Drag and drop the CPK file


3. Extract the file:

after the file is opened in the CRI file maker, extract the face cpk file by pressing the top-right icon in the tool.

Extract the file


4. Create an extract folder:

now you should create a folder to extract the multi-files, in this example, I created a folder on the desktop and renamed it to (merge), select this folder, and press OK.

Create an extract folder


5. extract the next cpk file:

after the tool finishes, press ok and close the tool, now repeat the steps (2-3-4) for the other cpk files, extract them all in the merge folder

extract the next cpk file


6. Verify the extracted files:

open the merge folder, browse the folder real as shown in the picture below, all face cpk files that have been extracted there with the correct ID, note that the face files are all in CPK format (not a folder).
you can add more face cpk files in this directory, add as much as you want.

NOTE: faces must be in cpk format (like shown in the picture), all other files must be in folders.

Verify the extracted files


7.  Load the MERGE folder:

open the CRI file maker tool, drag and drop the folder (merge) inside the tool, the result should be similar to the picture below

Load the MERGE folder


8. Build the new CPK file:

now after the merge folder is loaded in the tool, press (build CPK file), in the small window rename the file to SMK_Extra1.cpk, and press start to build.

Build the new CPK


9. Replace the old cpk with the new one:

the new CPK file you created contains all 4 CPK files, now copy or move the new file into the download folder of the game to replace the old CPK file

you can now use the other extra cpk files to add other things.

Replace the old cpk


  1. Does it work with PES 2019? Thanks in advance.

  2. Can I name it SMK_Extra17,instead of Extra1? Because I've already used the Extra1.

    1. no you cannot just add,
      better merge multiple cpk files in one, see tutorial merge cpk

  3. Hi! Smoke-team, thanks again for making easy patching possible. After I downloaded the file-maker as instructed, It couldn't just turn the Smk_Extra 1 stuff to show any cpk in the tool(file-maker),instead, it shows an Smkdb file. May I know what's the issue cause my few of my friends encountered same result...Please, I need your guidance urgently!

    1. hello and welcome
      all the extra files are empty cpk files, you can replace them to add your customized mods (at your risk)
      the empty cpk files have a tiny identifier file in them, cannot create 100% empty cpk file, that will cause crash.

  4. Hi Smoke-team
    how many CPK faces can be added under 1 extraCPK file ?

    1. hello
      there is no limit, you can add as much as you want in a single cpk file
      i recommend to keep the cpk file under 2gb

  5. Hi smoke team, will it work using cpk for PES 2017 in PES 2021? Thanks
