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.

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.

Players database is available HERE

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.

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 that we update in each version, v4 have 20 new balls model added to the pack.
* no changes in the boot pack used 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.

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

more detailed installation tutorial is available HERE

- the installer will upgrade any existing smokepatch version installed previously
- changing the patch files or adding other mods is at your own risk.

  1. Hi, thanks for the new season update but there is a problem. Game is crashing when looking to subs of Fenerbah├že team(when scrolling all the way down in the subs list). I don't know if this problem happens in other teams. I will look more deeply.

    1. maybe a problem with a players miniface, will check it out

  2. Thank u guys, u are great!
    Lil bit fix number Real Madrid font/numbers main kit colours are blue, not black.

  3. big thanks you smoke pathp

  4. thankyouu very mucchhhh admin

  5. Thanks.. but again invisible boot problems...

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

    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:
      (Ps. I installed the patch on the clean game, I had the v3 and I uninstalled it before installing the V4)

    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.

    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.

  6. Hi, SmokeTeam! Please fix ball in Champions League mode

  7. Hey...thanks for the patch update....but there is a problem concerning the UCL matchball...I can't be able to select, and its using a random ball...and also the ucl shirt logos don't seem to appear

    1. hello,
