- all modes started with any version of football life 23 can continue after updating.


update details:


player setting
a major player settings update is included, which mainly affects head size to correspond with the real faces addon, some players would have a proportionally big or smaller head than in reality, sometimes incorrect skin colors, more than 5000 players' head settings have been revised.
this is done at the database level, this allows it to be applied regardless of which edit file is used.


- database updates
the database is in constant review and upgrade, every version adds more updates to the database, including the addition of new players that were missing before and signed them to their proper teams, and many transfer fixes have been applied.


kits updates
included more updated kits and minor fixes for various teams in various leagues, every update includes updated kits for at least ten teams, alongside the discovered minor issues that are not logged as it's a fix-on-the-spot type of correction.


- sider dll/lua update
updated the sider DLL to the latest version 7.1.6 (by juce)
also updated the lua files of most sider addons to their latest version.


- added fixes for face pack update2
added a small fix for some faces that caused a problem, and also added a new empty CPK file for future face pack updates.
* future face pack updates will require this version (23.3.3) to be installed.


- gameplay enhancements
performed minor tweaks in the gameplay.
* FL gameplay is not similar to PES gameplay (much less automatic than pes), pes21 gameplay is also available by using the switcher.


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

Previous fixes from updates 3.1/3.2 are included
see the full change log here

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

Install instructions:

- be sure to install update 3
- extract and run the installer (SPFL23_330.exe) as administrator
- start the game from the main launcher (FL_2023 start.exe)


* other launchers for special cases are available, see the compatibility list
* close the game before updating
* run installer and game as administrator
* for help, see the FAQ section

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

version 3.30 (193 MB)

FL23 Download links at the main thread

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

know issue:

- problem with edit mode transfers contracts
there is a known issue in the master league when started after making transfers in edit mode, this will cause these transfers to have a problem in their contracts and can bug the game in the transfer window.

there is a temporary workaround for this by reducing the starting year, see the tutorial
hopefully, a better solution will be found in future versions.

- some minor issues are not applied like alternating the league's rules, this is postponed to next season, as it will require starting a new master league, which is preferable to avoid.

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

Antivirus false positive:
all the files on the Smokepatch website are safe and free from viruses or malware, we use BAT scripts to install and run the game, antivirus programs mark all BAT-based files as dangerous, and we cannot afford to buy a digital certificate, as the price for that is insane, do not let the antivirus delete or block the installation, don't do this unless you trust the source.

  1. 1.To install this new update are we going to lose all our edits again? If the problem have been solve please tell us in order to do the update. We don't wanna lose all ours edits again. It's so much work which took us months to be finalized.
    2. For the last commentary update when we tried to install it, it didn't accept and they said SP football life was not found in the selected directory. Hope it won't be the case for this update 3.30 too. And please tell us how to solve that problem of commentary update without reinstalling the game.
    3. Hope you did an update of african's national's teams jersey because it's now a long time that they still have the old jersey. And also uruguay national team.
    4. We trust you about the gameplay review because the last one was almost perfect with minor error but we all hope they've been corrected because we have reported them.

    1. 1. i couldnt find any specific errors in the import procedure, however you can backup your edit file and use it after updating.
      2. if you get (SP football life was not found) error it means there are missing files, be sure you did not delete, move or rename FL main files, reinstall to recover any missing files if you are not sure.
      3. kits are being updated every version, but not selective and it takes a lot of time to reach the rest of national teams
      4. there are two type of FL users, the people who prefer PES style and others like me who prefer the new gameplay, if you like the style of FL then any further changes will be a positive thing

      Delete
    2. Thank you i will try to practice your advices. But i really don't want to reinstall my FL game just becuse of commentary because i already do many things there which i can't want to lose. Why cant you make also commentary update easy as face pack. Just to copy and paste in the selected folder instead of that installation ?

      Delete
    3. Anyway i also like the gameplay of fotball life more than the one of PES because is more realistic and fun. Can't never go back to the one of PES. And i hope you won't abandon this FL gameplay and you will continue to update it as long as football is continue to evolve.

    4. if there are missing files, it will cause issues in every update or future addons, don't take missing files from the game as a normal thing, i wont have included any file if there wasn't a reason for it.

    5. Yeah i just reinstalled the game and now the commentary update 2 has been installed without any problem. There was amissing file as you said. Now I just wanna install the 3.30 update. Hope you finally added scoreboard of UEFA Champions league in the sider lua. Many thanks and good job. You are amazing guys. Thanks for everything.

    6. Hello SP team but it seems like you forgot once again to add scoreboard of UEFA CHAMPIONS LEAGUE in the sider lua in this update 3.30. Because when we switch the scoreboard to the one of champions league, it doesn't appear in the match. Only the one of EUROPA LEAGUE and other leagues are better. Please try to fix also for UCL.

  19. First I would like to thank you for the great work on this game, after several hours I would like to mention details that I would like to see improved in the future. The first is that the economic reward of tournaments or cups is very low, for winning the German League there are 17 million, for winning the German Cup there are 500 thousand, for winning the Europa League there are 5.5 million and for winning the Champions League there are 8.8 million, which which is ridiculously low, I would also like to mention that the referees continue to charge for any foul rose, but in the area they do not charge anything

  24. Hi! Everytime an awsome work, thank you guys. I still believe that is the best realistic gameplay so far.
    One question: is there a switcher for the "referee/fauls system"? Sometimes it whistles only against me!
    I would like to know if you notice that player is so weak in protecting ball against CPU: they can steal the ball even from behind easily, even when I'm using very strong players.
    Thank you so much

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. hello and welcome,
      referee cannot only foul you, the refereeing although it doesn't seem so are in fact done properly, they are not perfect, if you find them whistle only on you then you are not playing it right, use the zoomed camera if you want to see what exactly is going on, dont react as you are playing PES, try to different things to get the best out of the gameplay
      referee calls less than 5% wrong calls and it depends on many factors.

    1. remove any changes you added that might cause that, reinstall if you are not successful

  29. Cosmetic changes are welcome, but I'll discuss about the gameplay, which is and should be the most important:

    - Protecting the ball is crappy like it was in v3.0
    - Opponent player can steal the ball from behind, again! Like in v3.0
    - Players are uncapable to receive the ball normaly anymore, suddenly there are too many pinballs in the game. It's like they got blinfolded.

    Sorry to say, but this gameplay changes are sooo bad. And we have just moved forvard with 3.2.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I forgot one more thing:
      - stealing the ball using R1+R2 (super cancel) is barely working now.

      Delete
    2. discussing gameplay is probably as pointless as discussing politics,
      non of the things you mentioned have been changed or edited, the gameplay is fine

      please beware of the placebo effect also you can revert to any gameplay version from the switcher if you feel so.

      Delete

    3. Thank you for your kind reply. I appreciate it.
      As you once mentioned - you don't write in detail about the changes, especially those related to the gameplay, because you want the players to test it themselves, discuss it. On the one hand, it is a very interesting approach, but the possibility of a placebo effect is the negative side of this approach.

      I will explain the points I wrote:
      - protecting the ball - in v3.0 this is how the players behaved. It's just like they didn't have enough strength to save the ball. I'm playing master league with the same team - I haven't changed my team or playstyle since the new 3.3 patch.
      - opponent steals the ball from the back - since patch 3.2 came out I can't remember ever losing the ball like that. However, suddenly, after version 3.3, it happened a couple of times today during the day.
      - pinballs - I don't know why, but all the games we played today had a lot of pinballs, and were full of comical situations. It just wasn't like that before 3.3. Maybe today was just such a day, I don't know... Certainly, it was strange...
      - taking the ball with R1+R2 - I knew not to make a single foul in the game, or hardly any in a couple of games - but today, at the end of one game I remember that we had 10 fouls.

      Something is fishy here... something is wrong. And the interesting fact is that other players are suffering from the same problems.

      Anyway, we have a lot of fun playing FL and we really admire your work. Please continue working on gameplay.

      Delete
    4. I think we should stop disturbing the SP team and let them work on future update. Because we have a switcher and everyone can switch to the gameplay he or she liked. As me i just switched in 3.2 gameplay again because for me it's better than 3.3. So everyone have his preference and tha'ts mine. I don't say that 3.3 is not better but me i just liked 3.2

For example, I always sign Sven Bender as a free agent, he is an excellent defender to start in the second division. 2.- Please, never remove the switch. I like the original gameplay of pes21. Again, thank you very much.

  44. About 3.30 update :

    After playing a single match, always FUMA , i can see clearly that gameplay (cpk_all) have major imporvements !!!
    First of all, SP fixed the "crossing" issues were you could not cross middle but only low, you had all the time to use R1 ( high cross ) or turn and cross in order to achieve a mid crossing.
    This improvement is huge .
    Secondly, they adjusted shooting and ball's weight, i can see that passes are heavier from 3.20.
    As i said, i just played 1 match, but i can see that SP is doing every single time a great job in every aspect of the game !!!
    IF back in the days PES 2021 was like this, no one, literaly no one would care for FIFA.

    At this point i really want to ask from the community to support those guys, because they are doing great work, with love and also because at the end of the day, we all spend hours and hours playing FL.2023.
    And we always should give credits to the game we enjoy and play the most.

    Bravo SP, keep it up !!!!

    P.S : i still cant figure out how to disable the stupid annoying tunnel entrance theme that interrupts the specific stadium songs ( adding a ; at audio.lua didn't helped )

    2. I played many matches but cannot play well with this cross mechanic: it takes too much time to do a simple cross (not the wing ones) cause you have to charge it that much that the opponent reaches you every time and steals the ball. Is there a way to change it? I tried Holland ultimate go too but it's tied to some other file

  45. Is this the last update version for FL23 ?
    Or version 3.4 later .. after Summer transfer window.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Hi Smoke,

    - First of all, thanks for the new update.
    - I still haven't tried FUMA in version 3.3, because it all depends on whom of my friends I play with. It also depends on which difficulty we play - Top Player or Super Star.

    - So far I've only tried the default gameplay on Top Player.
    I can tell that the players are protecting the ball a bit worse, and sometimes they act like they don't see the ball and it just goes by, or bounces off them like from a wall, instead of catching it.

    These are just the first impressions after about 15 matches.

    Please keep improving the gameplay and thanks again for all you do! You are amazing!

    1. Hey mate it is me who was asking you for that missing file in order to install the new commentary update. Don't worry i just reinstall my FL 23 and now eveything is okay. All the missing files are present now. Anyway for this 3.30 update i'm just happy that they corrected the long pass and now is no longer too weak and works perfect. I'm okay with you that players are protecting the ball very worse. Hope they will fix it. Anyway this new gameplay is also fine like the last one. only small error but hope the will be corrected again. SP team you're amazing guys. Thanks. But please add also scoreboard of UEFA champions league in the side lua bcz you forgot to add it again while is very important to make this game more fun.

    2. Hi guys. At first it really bothered me, but I got used to it. Last night we had a really nice evening while playing. I understand that they have to experiment, and the most important thing is that they work on the gameplay. Not only on the gameplay, but on everything. This is still a young game, but it is certainly for me (and all my friends) the most interesting football that exists, and full of potential <3

    3. if you have master league started with incompatible mod, the ML will be affected even if you remove the mod
      i recommend starting a master league without any DB mods so your master league would be clean

  59. Can you make a gold logo of EPL (on left the shoulder) for the team that take 1st place in the next season (Master League Mode). If can, please do it in the next update of FL23. Love you Smoke Patch team.

  60. Hello

    How hard is for you guys to mess around with the game's engine? Because I would love to see, for example, a full qualifiers for the World Cup in ML (which means using all NTs for a full simulation) and a reworked contract system for players as well. Also, when the new UEFA Champions League format drops new year, will you try to add it? I don't know how "hardcoded" these things are, but I'm sure you more or less have access to the game's internals somehow?

    1. hello,
      i am experimenting with such changes, sadly it might be far fetched as it causes all sort of crashes, but you never know... pes engine have much potential, there was no need to switch to other engines expect for mobile compatibility

    2. You guys are doing a tremendous job so far! I'm happy to hear you're experimenting and I'm certain you will also find workarounds to bring us an even more complete football experience. I wish you all the best, I'll stay tuned! Oh, and thank you for bringing this absolute gem to us, for free even! Cheers on that!

    3. Dear Torenico,

      - I'll brighten your day a little more.
      - I think I have read literally every comment on this forum and I can say that I have come across a loooot of very good things that are planned. It's just crazy... I am happy as a little child, and I am 30+ years old.
      - Right now, I am most looking forward to the huge improvements that will come with the start of the new season. Until then, I'm looking forward to no minor patches and add-ons. They just release, work, release, work, it's just amazing.
      - Deep bow! Great respect for the team!

  64. I think we should stop disturbing the SP team and let them work on future update. Because we have a switcher and everyone can switch to the gameplay he or she liked. As me i just switched in 3.2 gameplay again because for me it's better than 3.3. So everyone have his preference and tha'ts mine. I don't say that 3.3 is not better but me i just liked 3.2

  73. Hi, I wanted to report two bugs of FL2023.
    The first is by changing the color of the Ceres Negros shirt (or any other team), the radar dot always turns black.
    The second is that by pressing Reset in Competition Structure, all the teams of the AFC Champions League disappear.
    Lastly, I would recommend leaving the classic teams as editable, in order to have more customizable teams.

    I am running into a problem. I have an updated MLS kit server that works great. However, if I try to add my own custom kits to the server, the game always crashes when my team is displayed (i.e. looking at kits in Edit mode, or immediately when opening Become a Legend)

    Do you know what I could be doing wrong and how I could fix it?

  83. Thank you for your work and dedication! I am really interested in getting the latest updates on the Chinese Super League. In fact, the transfer window for the Chinese Super League has already closed, and the league has started for 5-6 rounds. However, when I checked my hometown team, Shanghai Shenhua, the players listed are still from the previous season. Since many players did not join from the top five leagues' transfers, I am unable to manually update the transfers myself. I'm looking forward to receiving the latest player information from you. Thank you!

    towards the end of a match about 82 to 90 mins in Master league Com cheats with causing my players to commit fouls in or close to penalty box without me trying to tackle. it either ends in an always perfect freekick or penalty from almost any player at all. this happens for all gameplays from pes 2021 to the new FL version. so no matter how i switch gameplays,same scenario always occurs.

      No, you don't have to. But it's certainly nice to have at least player faces. Stadiums are cool, but you can live without them. My recommendation is to insert face update 2 if you are already using the patch 3.3 version.
