This is the full edition of smoke patch 9.4, introducing the new league switcher which gives you more league options to replace the fake ones in the game, the team squads and kits are made of the season 16/17 and will start updating the transfers in updates as they happen. with more than 600 real teams in the patch we try to reach to full potential of the game without compromising the stability or game-play, this is the first editing in pes 2017 that is detached from konami live update, as a result we will keep reviewing the stats and transfers starting with the patch 9.4. please read carefully all the features, install instructions and notes of the patch before downloading or installing the patch to avoid any confusion.
the new league switcher contains a variety of choices that you can choose from, all the teams will be available regardless of the leagues you choose, there is also an option to remove completely MLS teams from Latin america continent.
as in the previous versions, all the leagues have correct names and logos, it is worth mentioning that it is not possible to change the league structure without bugging the game, for example, so we are aware that African cup should be groups rather than knockout as konami made it, but changing the structure caused a sea of bugs, so do not expect changes in that concern.
the 10 options in the league switcher are:
- Germany - Colombia - China
- Germany - Colombia - China (without MLS teams)
- Turkey - Colombia - China
- Russia - Colombia - China
- Germany - Colombia - Japan
- Germany - USA - Japan
- Germany - USA - China
- Germany - Mexico - Japan
- Turkey - USA - Japan
- Russia - Mexico - Japan
this edition have 90 teams more than the previous version, you can see all the teams in the game in the TEAMS 2017 page, all teams and national teams can be used normally in FL modes.
the patch have 606 overall teams, with correct logos, kits, squads, manager, stadium name and fans color, as usual when we find any error we will correct in updates.
the number of players in the patch is more than 13.000 player, around 3000 of them have real faces in this version, note that we do not create the faces, we only re-texture and re-assign, to see the face maker you can check pes-stars website.
as the original game have fake teams and players, and incorrect names due to the lack of licencing, this also resulted in duplicated players, the patch removes and replaces all fake and duplicated players with real life players.
the stadiums have a lot of special ad-boards, all leagues new and old have correct ad-boards, with a lot of the major teams have their own special ad-boards.
we have created HD turfs for the stadiums for optimal quality and game-play, we are aware that some find it bright or saturated, some find it dark, it is a matter of taste, our only goal is to have them as real as possible, you can always change the luminosity of your screen if you have other preference.
LOW QUALITY setting users will not benefit the full potential of the game graphics due to a limited system power, the HD turfs will show a flat green color at night, we made a special turfs similar to konami turf that is compatible with low quality settings, can be downloaded and installed separably from addons.
all teams in the game have correct stadium names, but as you surly know there is a bug that shows default name for teams without original stadium model in FL modes, we still cant find a solution for this so far.
some fans really need a more updated boots, a new boot pack will be made separately sometime in the near future, until then you can install other boot pack by renaming and replacing the boots file (010_smkdb_bo.cpk)
smoke patch uses only konami game-play, we never change or edit or modify the exe in anyway, as we believe that konami did a fine job with that.
Other changes in this version
- fixed konami bug with master league game plan
this mistake was made by konami after one of the live updates released, this prevented the game plan changes to be saved after exiting the game, in this version we corrected this mistake and now you can save the changes without any problem.
- revised stats for major clubs (SRS)
since this version is detached from live updates, we started revising the stats according to our system which we use in all previous pes version, in the 9.4 we started with the big teams, and will keep reviewing the stats in future updates.
- Extract patch files
download all parts and be sure all are completed, extract only part one the rest will be extracted automatically, don't move any of the installation files or folders.
- Run Setup 94.exe
run the installer and choose PES installation folder, the patch must be installed in the same game folder, be sure you don't get errors and that the installer finished successfully.
- always check and install the latest smoke update when available.
- delete old patch and old edit file is highly recommended (to avoid any possible errors and to free disk space)
- starting new ML and BAL is recommended (to use new teams, new players and others)
- do not use old edit00000 files (using older or other edit files might bug the game)
- do not generate dpfilelist (use smoke extra cpk instead to add things)
- This version is made to focus on offline modes, online feature will not find opponents due the the difference between the patch system files and the original game.
