V4 Release Notes:

* Do not continue FL modes started with last season's patch. (more notes in the description)
* SmokePatch does not include any real faces. (available as optional addon)

------------------------------------------------
Game Restrictions:

Chile league
this league have 16 teams instead of the 17 of this season, adding the 17th team will bug pes2018

Other missing teams:
PES18 cannot handle the number of teams as in newer versions, SP18 v4 is maxed up and used all the possible slots to have the maximum that the game can handle

Squad number:
the maximum number of players in a team is 32 instead of 40 in newer games, players who cannot be added are available as free agents, also the number of players in the national teams is limited to 23 (26 in newer games)

football life start year:
this is not editable and changing it will most probably bug the game as it needs EXE changes, smokepatch does not change the default starting year of the game.

------------------------------------------------
SP18 General Features:

- compatible with all PES 2018 game versions
- ready for season 21/22
- adds a lot of clubs and national teams to the game
- all teams, leagues, and players have real names and logos
- correct teams settings like managers, stadium name, and rivalries
- all teams have real kits, many of them are updated
- no duplicated teams or players
- applies smokepatch graphics like scoreboards, audiovisual, and backgrounds.
- adds many boots and balls and formation pictures
- and many more

------------------------------------------------
Details:

Leagues and Teams
all the leagues are ready for the new season, promoted teams are now available in their respective leagues, all the teams are with their correct attributes and settings, including the correct manager with photo, correct stadium names, and rivalries.

every season a new teams selection is added to the database, SP database does not have any duplicate teams or players, with no fake names or players (except for the ML default teams and the editable teams)

the fake leagues in the game are replaced with real leagues:

Fake Europe League:
this league is used for the German Bundesliga, all 18 teams of the new season are available.
Fake America League:
the Colombian Liga Dimayor replaces this league, 20 teams participating are available.
Fake Asia League:
Japan J1 League is available in this league slot, with all 20 teams available.

two fully editable teams are still available in the game, 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 import it when we update the patch, see tutorial section.

we take the liberty of adapting the season according to the game compatibility, to avoid problems in football life modes. you might find a missing or extra team depending on what game version is installed.

The teams available in smokepatch V4 HERE
for ID reference, our database is available HERE

------------------------------------------------
Players and Stats
smokepatch uses Konami stats for all the players, although this year we have to adapt the eFootball stats to conform with the PES, some stats would not show precise overall ratting due to differences in the player's details across games.

Real faces: 
Real faces are not included in the patch due to their large size. but are available to download from the addons menu.
* many users get a black screen at the end of some games, this is from faces added from other sources, use the smokepatch face pack, or be sure not to use any faces that have this bug.

Players database is available HERE

------------------------------------------------
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, kits, boots, balls, backgrounds) are all compatible with 4K resolution without losing quality. while consuming the same PC resources as the original game.

Kits:
all the teams in smokepatch have real kits, with more than 200 teams having this season kits, more usually comes in later updates.

Balls and Boots:
smokepatch has 40 real balls and 100 real boots, a selection of the best brands
* no changes in the boot pack, v4 has the same pack as in the previous version.

Formation Picture:
about 95% of the players in the database have their correct and real mini-face, this pack is being constantly updated in each patch version.

Theme (Audio Visuals):
smokepatch v4 has its own bundled theme that includes sp v4 audiovisual, we think that changing the theme every now and then will keep the game fresh, but users have the option to remove and revert to the game default theme using sp switcher, or alternatively, users can change it by applying other ones available at the website addons menu.

--------------------------------------------------------
Addons Compatibility
all SP addons for pes18 work with v4 as usual

--------------------------------------------------------
SP 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.
this tool can deactivate or activate the patch to restore the original game, other options like removing graphics or sound are also available in this switcher.

--------------------------------------------------------
Installation
1- Extract the installer files
2- Run (smokepatch18.4.0.exe)

NOTES:
- the installer will upgrade any existing smokepatch version installed previously

    1. all boots seems fine and appearing in the game,
      be sure you didn't add something that can do that

      Delete
    2. My report to fix:
      Some player with invisible shoes (see Roberto Carlos in the classic team, or a player from Bologna, I don't remember which one though)
      Random crashes by going to free training, and choosing OGC Nice as a team, but SAFE crashes if you do: friendly, choose Newell's Old Boys, go to formations and move on to substitutes. (I don't know if it happens with other teams)
      Then this, however I don't know if it depends on the patch or addon from the V3 faces, which I installed IMM: https://ibb.co/ZSfWGCd
      (Ps. I installed the patch on the clean game, I had the v3 and I uninstalled it before installing the V4)

      Delete
    3. hello,
      crash caused by several formation pictures and boot assignments will be fixed in the update
      im not sure there will be any further updates for the facepack, but be sure you have the facepack update installed as it fixes most face issues.

      Delete
    4. Hi, I installed the facepack fix. There are still some bugs. If I unpack the .cpk file and delete that single folder from the player with the bug face, recompact the file, could it be some kind of contrast to the game? same question if I add a new player's card with a face.
      Ps. beautiful soundtrack! compliments.

  30. Hello SmokePatch team!
    I notify you of a problem with the new patch.
    The first version had many teams that if you played with them, the game would crash on the tips screen, and the game would never start. With the new update, this was (mostly) fixed, but now this issue has a new variation.
    When trying to play a match against the Bolivian national team, the kits of the Bolivian national team or the national team that is selected are not loaded. When trying to play the match anyway, the game crashes on the hint screen and the only way to get everything back to normal is to restart the game.
    I hope I have expressed myself in the best way and I wish you luck. Thanks a lot!!!
    PS: Previously, install the SmokePatch face pack itself, I don't know if it has anything to do with it?? do not know...
    PD 2: The problem happens equally, if the Bolivian team is selected, to play with it, or to play against it, just to clarify.

    2. thanks for your reply, I'll try it later.
      Anyway, is it possible if I only use some cpk files from the new one and mixing it with the older version?
      for example, using the kit.cpk from 4.2 but still using the 4.1 patch. Can I do that?

      Delete
    3. experiments like this is not recommended, for best compatibility you need to install the patch and its update and use them as they are made, cannot predict problem from mixing files
