SP Football Life 2023


Smokepatch Football Life 2023
version 1.0.0 (31.Oct.2022)
update 1.0.1 (1.Nov.2022)
season 2022/23
------------------------------------------------

Football Life is our attempt to continue the offline modes of the retired PES series, football life is a heavily moded standalone football game based on pes21, built for offline career modes only. 

SP Football Life is how we like to play a football game, it is made with the same standards as previous smokepatch contents and is built according to our guidelines to the best of our knowledge, users can read the description before deciding to use football life as everybody have their own taste and preference.

- some features are not yet included (like classics in ML and CL badges) but will be added in future updates
- there are some minor issues here and there, that will be addressed in future updates.
- it is prohibited to extract the database or the cpk files for other uses

Main Features:
- Season 2022/2023
- Simple installer and run procedures.
- menu language is English, and multi-language commentaries are available as an addon
- modified sider included in football life, including minimum add-ons.
- free to-play career mode, cannot play online, we choose advertisements and sponsorship to keep our content shared for free for everybody.

----------------------------------

Database:

the new database used is balanced to suit football life, but it is possible to make edits using the standard edit mode, not everything can be edited, but two fully editable teams can be customized (same as in previous versions).
players' stats are similar (but not identical) to the newest efootball database.

* user edits can be exported and imported in case of updates, see a tutorial
* smokepatch database is made for sp football life only, it is not allowed to extract the database or content for other uses.



Addons
addons are optional features that can be downloaded and added separately, most addons are kept optional due to the large file size.

available add-ons can be accessed from the website add-ons menu above, do not add anything unless it is made specifically for football life 2023, every addon has a compatibility note.

football life will have its own compatible content, most add-ons for older smokepatch content will not work, adding mods from other sources can work but at the user's own risk so be sure to make backups.


Sider
football life includes a modified sider, sider is a tool made by juce that allows for more features and allows customization by the community.

* we will be making a tutorial for users unfamiliar with sider functions.


Gameplay
football life gameplay is modified and different, but it is also possible to use the standard PES21 gameplay by using (FL23 switcher.exe) which is located in the game folder, switch and restore by running this tool again.

the hardest difficulty (Legend) will unlock after winning 5 games in the superstar difficulty.
it can be forced in the sider settings but it is recommended to unlock after trying and winning in the superstar difficulty.


Real Faces
real player faces are not included by default due to the large file size, faces from pes21 are compatible and work on football life.

The faces in football life are game-built to approximate the player's characteristics, the real faces of players are available as an option because the file size of the faces is too big, go to the real faces addon

users who prefer to use their own face pack can add using sider or by replacing the extra empty cpk files included in the download folder of the game, players ID can be found here

master league managers (+100) have their faces included by default.

SP facepack addon



Game Commentary
A new English commentary version is included in football life, other 15 languages are also available as an optional add-on. all the commentaries are updated to the newest 2023 version.

see available commentators at the commentary addons page


Teams kits
all teams in football life have real kits, around 300 teams have updated kits for the new season, others have previous season kits, and more updated kits come in updates same as in previous smokepatch releases.

sider kitserver for CL badges is not yet included.


Boots
100 players' boots included, most of the boots are of recent designs, assigned randomly to all the players in the football life database.


Balls
we have moved the balls to sider, which allows for a bigger number of available balls, also by doing that balls will load automatically in the game depending on the tournament, selecting the match ball can be done in the sider menu (space bar), 

* we will be making a tutorial for users unfamiliar with sider functions.


Stadiums
SP Football Life comes with 29 real model stadiums, and 17 fake stadium models assigned to the teams, stadium model size is big, so we kept our selection in the base game to the minimum.

adding all the available stadiums can use over 100 gigabytes of the available disk capacity, users can decide to add more stadiums from our stadium's addons (in progress), but be aware of the size needed, and keep in mind that you might not play in most of them, example if you add all Italian stadiums and you play in a team in brazil, you might never see any of them in the game career, some users prefer the coach mode, which doesn't require any more stadiums.

a modified sider is included in football life by default, stadiums from pes21 can be added with ease, we will be creating a tutorial for that when the stadium's addon is released.

  9. Hi, first I would like to say this is a fantastic project! I have one question though, will I get in trouble for downloading this as it is using files from PES 2021 and is technically pirating the game. I would really appreciate you responding to this as I really want to use this! Thank you for all of your hard work and I am exited to see the project progress in the future!

  11. Just had a quick look though the teams and stuff and this looks like great work! Will be top tier when we soup it up with faces and stuff. One error i spotted is non of the Classic teams or the Angola NT have kits. They have that two tone blue kit. But, apart from a quick look, everything else looks good.

  12. Dear SP Team: I pay tribute to your collective work, the time you spent on the SPFL23 project, thank you for giving us all joy once again and enjoying football, you are real enthusiasts and professionals in what you have created for us . Thank you very much, although I know no words can describe my gratitude. There is a word on footballers kits, that fits wonderfully to thank you, and that word is RESPECT.

  38. I have just tested my first match using a controller and for some reason, O tackles, crosses and backs out of menus as it should. But for some reason, it also brings up the Sider menu.
    I have no idea why this continues to happen but sadly renders the game unplayable for me.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Amazing work, thx for the great job.
    For those that are having issues with the lineups looks like entering edit mode makes the game load the edit file and fix the lineups. The only thing that i was unable to use was the old facepacks, anyone got a solution? While playing my country league (Brazil) most faces load, but almost nonne face for the great European Leagues. Using 20/21 Facepack.

  41. congratulations for the work. Help me with a doubt. I'm using dualshock 4 and I managed to make it work by adding the game to steam by opening it through the big picture. But my doubt is, within a match, all the passes I make are too slow. the passes are slow, even though I hold the button until the maximum force of the pass, the pass goes slowly, as if it had a huge assist connected blocking the direction I choose and the force of the pass. and I didn't find it in the settings about this assistance. how do i solve?

    Can i fix these issues by myself? If yes, how? Im not very prolific with modding, where should i start looking?

  49. For those who encounter problems, please please please read the tuto before installing. Every details are there! Where are the faces? Where is the edit mode? Why stats are different? .... Please read before asking!! Good job SmokePatch! It's very ambitious and the gameplay is perfect. Just waiting for the addons now.

    1. Have you been able to add real faces to the football life game? Using the smokepatch facepack I mean.

    2. No need because they said the database number is different for some players. So if you install the previous version of facepack (even made by them), a lot of players will not have faces, and others will have. They give the new database that we can download if you want to change the code number and install the faces one by one (which is a waste of time) ... So, just wait for the facepack addons now!

  51. Firstly i want to say this is the best game ever made. thanks for the team.
    After I installed it, there are some things that need to be improved. like
    1. player face,
    2. replay goals, and
    3. team formation. there may be a few more that haven't been found.
    but it doesn't matter for the first update, next time it can be improved again.

    note: I've made additions to the face pack part 1-6 and extra face but it still doesn't fit.

    ReplyDelete

    1. It's because the new database for the players is different from the last facepack. Go to database, find the list of the players with their code and change it for some players... Or wait for the facepack addons.

I downloaded the face pack from the link https://www.pessmokepatch.com/2022/01/sp21faces.html and applied it to the download folder, but there are no players such as Son Heung-min and Harry Kane. It probably won't work with the pes2021 facepack. Please fix this issue quickly. There is no other language other than Korean. I would like to be able to use other languages.

  58. Do you guys think it could be possible to change the gameplay in the future? Efootball gameplay is just terrible, players are just too slow, they dont respond to your commands and the foul system is just ridiculous.
    Despite that, amazing work, hope it gets well. If you guys ever open donations, i'm sure i'd help.

    1. Have you played this game though? Because there is a switcher that makes you choose if you want Football Life 23 gameplay or Pes 2021 gameplay. I have been playing it using Football Life 2023 and the fouls have been very minimal...also the game play is different.

      Delete
    2. The gameplay I find very good, realistic. At worst increases the speed of games.
      Smoke will not change the gameplay again and will surely focus on the server kit, facepack and others.

  59. Looks and feels great. I'm sure the specific SP Football Life 2023 addons will improve the experience just like in Smoke Patch.

    Overall and even without some addons it's most likely the best experience of football out there. Some people don't like the gameplay and are reverting to PES21, but i think SP Football Life 2023 is better in the simulation aspect of the sport.

    Still have to play more but you guys did it! That's the game we've always wanted to play.

  60. SP team. Thank for your amazing work. But i only have two preoccupation :
    1. My favorite team which is Paris saint Germain doesn't have kits for this season, it only the last season's kit. Plz in the second update try to solve that issue.
    2. All the players doesn't have their real faces, i know we need to wait for the add-ons of faces and others but we don't know when it will be released while we'reso impatient to start play the game. Even if we add last faces packs, they aren't compatible to all players. The thing is that we need the news faces. Hope it will be released very soon. Thank smoke patch team for your amazing work as always 🙏🙏🙏💖💖

  63. Hi you. At the outset, I would like to thank you for your efforts and work to create something great for fans of the PES series :) However, I read comments regarding the fact that the documents are local and not in the cloud (place of storage) and I do not know what is going on. Mi Football Live 2023 creates a record in MojeDokumenty-KONAMI-eFootball PES 2021 SEASON UPDATE. How can I change it? I read below but I do not fully understand what is going on, because I also have a problem with the compositions and faces of famous players.

  65. extra face pack haven't the good name (07_smkdb_up2.cpk)
    but what is the good file name to put to the extra face pack ?

    ReplyDelete
  66. Hey, first of all, thank you very much for spfl2023, ratings players is perfect, gameplay is good, you know you have to get used to it because you feel a lot of differences. Secondly, people embrace yourself in these comments, this is the 1st version, wait calmly, there will be faces all the other things, these faces do not bother me at all, in some time it will be easy, so far I had no problems, you do not have a lineup in a friendly match, you go into edit later you enter the match already there, in the master league they work. But that's not all I wanted to talk about, please let the creators write me on what settings should I play to be equal to AI, pass assist 1,2,3? Because in the original version of AI, the game on pass asist 3 is obvious, but what does it look like on the patch, another question for this gameplay on which game speed should be played? And I guess that's how much I want you to write on what game speed and pass assist settings should be played on this version. Regards, great job, and the people who write comments can't even install the game. After all, everything is described ...

  80. As far as I understand correctly, the lack of faces of celebrity players is due to the fact that in past facepacks there was no need to make faces for players whose faces were original in PES. So this facepack mainly updates minor players and superstars who have had their faces changed, but mostly superstars don't have faces.

    I really hope you to reply to my error I encountered when starting game, it said:
    Warning : Your computer does not meet the Minimum System Requirements run this software . As a result , you may experience errors during operation . Your Video Card does not meet the required specifications . ( GPU : VRAM 2GB )
    My GPU is Radeon RX 5300M and it is doing great with PES 2021, and I have initially realised that only my onboard GPU works when game started. I've tried force it run High performance (Radeon RX 5300M) in Display Setting > Graphics it still doesn't work. I also tried to update the graphic driver but nothing changed.

  103. Yeah i actually played the game, spent some good hours trying it last night. The gameplay they implemented isn't really bad, it just resembles the Efootball one a bit, but is actually playable. The only downside for me till now have been the fouls, wich gets a bit out of hand in some matches (hope they manage to work on it). I'll give a long try to the gameplay, maybe can catch up with it, but the game is indeed very good, FAR better than any Efootball. Hope the project keep getting big.
