Smoke software discussion

this post is to share general issues for both versions (2017-2018), talking about some issues raised by some users and how we can solve them



P2018 patch X20:
one issue keeps coming up which is the game loading issue for some users, this is an installation problem, because all who face this issue missed a step which is to copy the x20 non-stm fix, if you have this problem fix it by copying the fix in the proper folder as described, the link is at the same place as the patch X20 links.


P2017 patch 9.8.3:
about 20% of the users still have bugs when playing at certain stadiums, this is a high and worrying percentage, most comments describes a problem specially with (emirates stadium, Anfield and etihad), in this version we couldn't find any bug in these stadiums regardless of the condition, in order for us to fix an issue we need to experience this in our tests.

if you are one of these users who have this issue, be sure to reinstall the full patch 9.8 then the update 9.8.3, and then play the game without any changes to the patch files.

we test under these conditions:
- high quality, full resolution, multiple teams and modes
- medium quality, full res and multiple teams.

please report stadium issues only if you are sure you did not change the patch in anyway, it might be a bad game copy or a driver problem, we can work together to fix any issues found.


Generating dpfilelist:
in both games, generating the dpfilelist of the patch almost sure will cause master league crash between seasons and other bugs as well, do not change the patch dpfilelist to avoid bugs, to add things to the patch use the extra cpk files included with the patch (rename and replace), somethings will cause bugs in the game even with this method, like adding tattoos in pes 2017 will eventually bug the game, anything you add or change is at your own risk, we cannot give assistance to problem that is caused by others files

Plans:
Both games will have a new updates, soon will have X21 (full and update) and 9.8.4 (full and update), both will have updated rosters for the world cup, now all teams have submitted their world cup squads, all participating teams are being revised accordingly. and ofcourse every version will have new things and corrections following your reports (like modric face, or the height of a player and similar issues)

  1. I have tried the patch with the tattoos and other stadiums and it works perfectly and without errors of freezing or bugs of any kind, I think the error comes from the stadiums, there is something there that is wrong, because the tattoos with many other pack Stadiums work perfectly, so you have to see what problem there is in the stadiums. Even so, Smoke is the best patch of the world!

    1. anyway thanks for the best patch for pes

      Delete
    2. reinstall the full patch then only 9.8.3

      Delete
  3. problems with stadiums happen in 9.7 patches too. so I think the stadiums are the one causing the error. not the tattoo pack...so i downloaded "New Stadium Pack by JAS_pesclub.pro" where i can change the home ground. like Emirates stadium that keeps crashing. change it to other stadium. and it works fine for both 9.7 and this 9.8 patch..

    1. which means i change every home ground of a club that uses a stadium that freezes the game.

  4. I've deleted all patches amd full game (one that had always works with other patches), erase the pes (from c:) and konami folders (my documents) and reinstalled from zero (Game, 9.8 and 9.8.3). I tested and had problems like man city vs real madrid at etihad stadium playing champions league (eternal loading from outside the stadium). Please fix it before world cup begins so we can play during the torunament. Thanks a lot for the good job.

  7. Could you please update the squad list of all national teams engaged in world cup and add the real players faces for all the 32 teams. It would be awesome you're the best.

    ReplyDelete
  8. after many experiment it is clear that the problem is with players of Arsenal or Man City. because when I change starting eleven at the start of match then game run smoothly. but if i play with default starting eleven then game hangs or crashes. its not a problem of Emirates or Etihad Stadium.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I just played a game (arsenal vs city) at emirates stadium, no problem appeared and game finished normally, can you give more details so i can find the problem?

      Delete
    2. Dido сыграй матч, Man sity vs Arsenal на стадионе Etihad в самом начале, идет просто загрузка и все на этом.

      Delete
    3. i am sure that u changed starting lineup. because every time i played with default starting eleven game won't start. I am telling u to play a match Arsenal vs Real Madrid at Emirates without changing starting lineup. and same at Etihad between Man City and Barcelona

      Delete
    4. just did and game run normally with standard lineup, i did also with man city X real Madrid and made a video of the test without any errors:

      Delete
    8. clearly u have something wrong, are you sure you have 9.8 + 9.8.3?
      and are you sure you didnt change files or generate the dpfilelist?

      Delete

      Delete
    10. try reinstall the full patch 9.8, then 9.8.3, nothing else and try
      you should get the correct default patch

      Delete
    11. Dido, please test playing Man city against Real Madrid at etihad in champions league mode. Non like an exhibition. Like a new cup. Maybe the problem happens at night or during a cup match.

      Delete

    1. you need to switch to low quality turfs, the switcher is made for older version and it needs updating to work on all stadiums in 9.8, will update soon until then use the switcher

      Delete
    2. Dido на твоем видео тесте, у тебя у игроков имеются старые face. На 9.8 например у Sergio Ramos лицо совсем другое, у меня стоит 9.8 + 9.8.3 и все ровно идет постоянная загрузка в матче Barcelona vs Man sity

      Delete
    3. no ryan i play with latest 9.8.3, same thing with Aninda Mitra, i think you have done something wrong, reinstall the full 9.8 then 9.8.3 and try again

      Delete
    4. Что значит, что-то не так? Стоит ваш патч 9.8.0 + 9.8.3 все стоит по умолчанию, нет не каких изменений. И все ровно в ЛЧ Barcelona vs Man sity на стадионе Ethihad идет постоянная загрузка, здесь у многих людей такая проблема.
