* This update requires full patch 18.3.2 

please read and follow the install instruction and notes carefully.

the demo above from sp21 is similar to sp18 except for changes:
SP18 v3 is converted from SP21 v3, there are differences between the games so there are changes made to run without errors, see restrictions below

Restrictions:

Squad number
in pes 18, teams cannot have more than 32 players as a maximum in the teams, many teams have near 40 players, these players are mostly youth players and are available as free agents.

Players
in pes18, the game cannot handle the current number of players in the database, the player's number is limited to around 20000 players only, the original SP21 database has 25000.
most players deleted have low rates from free agents.

Teams
in pes18, the game cannot handle the current number of teams in the database, the slots are limited to around 598 teams only (registrable in the edit file), the original SP21 database has 742.
most of the players from the removed teams can be found as free agents.

Leagues:
the leagues in pes18 are less than the newer games, some leagues are not available in SP18, famous teams from these leagues are moved to other teams, teams from brazil's second division are removed.

ACL league
in pes21 this league is located in the main database of the game, in all previous versions this league needs to be in a separate database level, this resulted in these teams missing some players especially players who play in a national team, meaning the players in these clubs that also play in a national team are not assigned to the club, this is to avoid duplications and bugs.


SP18 Addons compatibility:

Faces:
this addon is compatible and can be used with v3 (around 97% of the ID are similar)
a newer face pack converted from a new game might be done, but that will take time due to the huge size of this addon.

Stadium Pack
this addon is pre-installed in v3, no need to apply this addon as it will be installed automatically with sp18 v3

the other addons should work fine, some will get new versions, be sure to read the details of the addon to have any needed information about the addon and its compatibility.


SP18 General Features

- compatible with the latest game version
- ready for season 20/21

Teams and Players
currently, the SP18 v3 database has 598 total teams including hidden and classics teams, the database includes around 20000 players, all real players except the players in the editable teams, no duplicated teams or players, players stats are from the latest Konami live update, we constantly keep updating the transfers and adding players if possible.

all the players and players added with their original game ID, if a player or a team does not have one then we assign a temporary ID until is added in the game database.

two teams remained fully editable, pes united (Zalgiris Vilnius) and we united (Ceres Negros), you can use these teams to make your own, it is possible to export the team and import it when we update the patch, see tutorial section.

for ID reference, our database is available HERE
teams list in sp18 v3 can be found HERE

Leagues
all the leagues are up to date for the current season, created all the promoted teams, fake leagues replaced with real leagues (Colombian league, Chinese league, Germany league)

Graphics
all the graphics files we create for best quality and performance at the same time, with the lowest file size possible for high quality, the graphics (emblems, logos, boots, balls, backgrounds) are all compatible with 4K resolution without losing quality. while consuming the same PC resources as the original game.

Stadiums
the stadium pack is preinstalled in this version, you can find the available stadiums on the addon page

Kits (team shirts)
we create and update kits constantly, all the teams in the smoke patch have real kits, most of the kits are of the current season, we keep updating the kits and include the new contents in updates when we have sufficient new files ready.

Addons
there are many more options you can add to the patch, check the addons section of the website, the addons are being upgraded periodically and we plan to add more options in the future.
be sure to read carefully about any addon before using it to know more about its functionality and compatibility.

Switcher
a small switcher tool is included for various functions, located in the game folder, be sure the game is not running if you want to use this tool.

  23. Hello,
    Okay, I have a "clean" game (without patch). First I install patch 18.0 and then 18.3.2? And I'll have all faces etc.? or I need some other facepacth? What is a correct way to install Smoke patch 18.3.2 correctly ? Thank You

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. hello
      only install 18.3.2 as mentioned in the install instructions above
      for faces you can download the optional facepack from addons

      Delete
    2. First of all thanks for your reply. I did a little experiment.
      For a clean game I installed:
      Case 1) patch 18.3.2 + facepack V3 and fix for (players appearance preset) now for example: Bundesliga - Wolfsburg team player K. Mbabu has no face (no head), Orban (Leipzig) has an original face PES, but we have the correct face, for example D. Olmo from the Leipzig team.

      Case 2) When I installed patch 18.3.2 without facepack V3 and fix I only have the original PES faces

      Case 3) When I installed patch 18.0 + 18.3.2 it's Olmo's face original from PES but I have the face of K. Mbabu and Orban

      What to do with this? Is there a way to make the faces of Olmo, Orban and Mbabu correct?

      I'm playing the Bundesliga and that's why such examples ...

      If you understand me, please help.

      Your biggest fan P.H.:)

      Delete
    3. here is the structure
      the default patch does not include any faces at all, faces are optional download to make the patch much lighter in size
      the facepack is the faces converted from newer games, you can see the players that the facepack add faces to in the facepack addon page.

  25. Sir, I just want to let you know that 'Name Print' in team's strip marking is not showing up. I was trying to edit CERES NEGROS's strip and then I opened team's strip and I figured that name print wasn't showing up. I tried to edit ZALGIRIS VILNIUS also and had the same problem. I did make a screenshot for the problem but I suppose I can't upload it here. So here's the link of my screenshot: https://ibb.co/x1DwG6p . I hope you guys could help with this, as I really wanted to make my own club. Ps: I did make a kit in peskitcreator lol.

  29. Hey mate great work as always. Just a question, I have a weird graphical glitch where in some day matches the shadows are both shown for the day and night pitch. Eg the normal shadow for the day game is there but also the night shadow that has the 4 shadows from the night lights.
    Also in my master league I just had my first Champions League game and it was played during the day. Could you help out with these problems at all? Thanks for your help and all your hard work you provide to keep these older editions fresh.

    1. hello,
      all this issues might be the from the stadium pack added by default, sadly stadiums are no longer updated,

  30. Hi, I encountered these two problems:
    1) the Juventus logo, being all black, becomes invisible in many tabs in the ML. It should have a white border.
    2) still problems with the boots, some players like Zieliński (Napoli) have not selected any type of boots. I guess why the old problem boots have been eliminated.
    I took the screenshots. Good job! ;)

  32. hello, would it be too much to ask you to add more South American teams (such as teams from the last 2020 or the next liberators cup 2021) supplanting the North American teams (less important)? for a probable pes17 update (v3.3 to put an example xd) it is more pleasant to play a liberators in a master league without so many North American teams in it. It's not that I'm asking you to permanently delete the North American teams, I'm just saying that they could leave more South American teams than there are (which is an excellent job really), such as adding Cerro Porteño and Delfín SC again. without having to eliminate two other South American teams at random. That would be all, I hope you read this message and thank you for having read it if someone got here. I had to use google translate to write this message to them. XD
