    After I click on download it just keeps loading, then after some seconds it asks me if I want to repair my download, which I also tried but to no use. As I said I already had problems with some mediafire link weeks ago after I updated my connection, so it's probably only my problem..

    Downloaded the xps one fine, in the process of getting it over to pes6, the only thing that is going to be a problem is skin colours as the csv export from pes2008 editor doesn't export skin colour unlike the pes6 editor where that was kindly added by @peterc10. So changing them won't be a problem but finding them all out will be!

    Judging by the above posts it seems the download is ok. I wonder if there is another way that i can send it to you?

    Wow, thank you! You worked on this for a long time, right? The game plays better than I remembered, slower and surprisingly decent defensively. I might try a ML or league soon.

    Is it normal for AI strikers to completely mishit their shots inside the area, though? Even guys with great shooting like Suarez or Cavani balloon shots way above the goal. I have a tough time shooting too, but I'm new to this game, the AI is not.

    Anyway I like this so much, I'll drop you a little something here. :SAL:

    + a few player edits

    What do you think about giving WBs the +5 STA too? That increase seems wise. I gave it to some guys and registered the as SBs to not break your system (Marcos Alonso, Jesus Navas).

    maybe my link helps you?
    alternatively, have you tried downloading on your phone and transferring to pc via usb/email?

    ..bbbut.. I'm still not capable of convert it for the emulator :LOL::(. Whenever I go to the usual MMC shenanigans, I put the OF in and it just doesn't recognize it when I launch the whole thing.

    hm, I noticed my file has a different name than geeeeee's. maybe rename it like that one? (54913_9370_NEW_FILE.max)

    i use the emulator too and have multiple copies of the game. the first one i tried wouldn't accept geeeee's OF. maybe it's a US/EU thing?

    I tried with both renaming and changing bios but it's the same. Problem is that when I put the OF in my memory card with the MMC program, it just call it "NEW FILE" in the description, despite me editing it in the Ps2 save builder program, and the game simply don't recognize it.

    I'm surely missing something here, no idea what tho :THINK:

    what does it the ps2 save builder do? I exported the file with mymc form memory card and uploaded. was i supposed to do something else?

    my mymc also just says NEW_FILE.

    Ps2 save builder it's supposed to convert raw Ps2 files in emulator ones. Anyway I tried everything.. and I still can't load it.

    I'm sorry to bother you again, but is there a chance you could maybe share your whole Ps2 emu, memory card file with me? As this point I'm just lost :BORED:..

    @mattmid: Thanks man. Are you 'back in the saddle' of editing PES6?

    @geeeeee: Amazing work! While I was browsing your OF I couldn't help but think how great it'd be if we had PES08 PS2 for PC...that gameplay combined with mods would be just perfect.
    Who are those folks on the Classic National Teams?

    @miguelfcp Not quite, but to continue the theme I'm probably looking at the horse at the moment. :D

    There's a few teams more in PES8 than PES6 so I've had to leave off a few Championship teams as they aren't in @geeeeee 's 72 ML teams.


    I've imported the file into a pes6 option file but I've yet to load it up in game and check if it's ok. You have to rename the teams in the editor before doing an import so that the players go into the correct teams. I've kept teams that were already in pes6 in the same slot so at least they'll have their proper kits (or at least two years earlier version anyway) There's probably kitserver kits for all those teams anyway but I haven't looked at that yet.

    As I said though skin colours is the big thing that'll need doing and I'd imagine tactics/formations.

    I'll upload the basic file once I've loaded it up and made sure it's ok

    @Chenghis.Khan heh yep it’s taken quite a while. Still have a lot to do. At the moment i am going through all the Non Aff and deleting players that are fake.

    I find the CPU strikers are excellent maybe because i am on ML only on Regular though.

    Thanks for the file. What changes have you made? Good idea regarding the WB’s i forgot about them. I will make the adjustment on the new one i am working on.

    @Madmac79 sorry you are having problems. Maybe you can get a cheap PS2...

    @miguelfcp those players are just made up random names hopefully similar from their county. I’m lowering the stats for them in the new one.

    @mattmid if you check the Championship teams i have also done Brentford, Reading, Preston, QPR, Sheff Wed and a couple others i think. Check them as i didnt include them in my ML list

    i hope you're right about the strikers. you have certainly played many many many more games than me.

    i edited team tactics for the teams mentioned in the spoiler, adjusted the playable positions for many of their players and also updated some players in those teams with recent psd stats.

    did it work?

    Unfortunately not.. it still doesn't recognize the OF. Don't have the slightest idea on what's wrong..

    @geeeeee I have a Ps2 but I haven't touched it in almost 10 years, I also don't have the device to transfer saves from pc to physical mmc. I'm not crazy with the general idea of putting it out of the dust, as of now I've become pretty allergic to consoles as a whole.

    @Madmac79 do you get any option files to work? PES5, 6 etc..

    If so what format is it?

    Hi guys, it's been a long time since my last post. I had some real life issues going on during these last months and didn't play any PES. I kept reading the thread though. Anyway, i will try to post more these days. I don't know yet which PES i'm gonna play now. Certainly not any modern PES or FIFA, though.:NO:

    I'm quite sure your game doesn't recognise the option file because this one is based on PES 2008 US version. I guess you have PES 2008 Europe version, just try to download the US iso. US version has english/french/spanish langage FYI.

    I practically do not play almost any other Pes game on the emu, as of now.. all the other Pes I have it on the pc, so I've never tried other OFs on the pcsx2...

    Welcome back mate, I haven't posted/played much lately myself, unfortunately, hope you are fine with your RL stuff..

    by the way I already had an american Iso and tried with it, to no effect.. I have no idea if there is some setting I've messed up with, or some version of the emulators I'm using maybe? I've tried both with the 1.4 and the dev one you yourself provided us with months ago..

    Thanks mate, happy to be back here.

    Hmmm... This looks like a really tricky problem there... I never used this ps2 save builder, i just imported the option file as it is with MyMC tool, did you try without that ?

    Hey guys,

    Just one question: how/where could I find instructions on how to play PES08 game on PC using emulator? I'm far from a big specialist on these kind of things (probably that's why I was hesitant to try this game earlier), so if someone has a post, link or anything like that with instructions on how to do it, it would be greatly appreciated.

    I tried the whole MMC that Chenghis generously upped for me, which had an OF that wasn't save builder-made, but nothing changed, so I really dunno.

    Pcsx2 is probably the best emulator out there and Google is your best friend ...

    https://pcsx2.net

    Google for a setup tutorial, although their own guide works fine.

    You'll need a PS2 bios file.

    Setup your controller in pcsx2.

    Rip your copy of pes08 to iso.

    Play game.

    It works fairly flawlessly on my old i7 and geforce 1060 6gb.

    If you have any specific questions send me a pm.

    1. Download PES 2008 and extract the ISO file from the archive anywhere on your PC :
    EU Version : https://cdromance.com/ps2-iso/pro-evolution-soccer-2008-eur-ps2-iso/
    US Version : https://cdromance.com/ps2-iso/pro-evolution-soccer-2008-usa-ps2-iso/
    2. Download PCSX2 last dev build : https://buildbot.orphis.net/pcsx2/index.php?m=dl&rev=v1.5.0-dev-2872-g1b41d1901&platform=windows-x86
    Extract anywhere on your PC with 7-zip.
    3. Download PS2 BIOS : http://fr.dllyes.com/playstation-2-ps2-bios/
    Extract the archive and copy all the content of the ps2_bios folder in a "bios" folder created inside the pcsx2 folder.
    4. Run PCSX2.exe.
    5. A menu with a language selector should appear. Leave it default. Just click next.
    6. A menu with all plugins used by PCSX2 should appear. Leaving everything default should work, so click next also.
    7. A menu related to bios should appear. Select either one US or European bios, depending on your copy of PES 2008. Click "finish". Now the PCSX2 interface should open.
    8. Click System, and then "Enable widescreens patch".
    9. Click Config, emulation settings, GS Window : First uncheck preset at the bottom of the screen, choose widescreeen 16:9 for the first two options, apply your own resolution and choose "standard" V-Sync.
    10. In the same screen, click on speedhacks, and check MTVU, leave the rest default.
    11. Click Config, video, plugin settings : Choose internal resolution 8x Native (or a lower setting depending on your computer performance).
    12. Click CD/DVD, ISO selector, browse and find your PES 2008 ISO.
    13. Click System, Boot ISO (full), the game should launch.
    I didn't need to set up my controller (XBOX 360 controller), it was automatically recognised, maybe you will have to do it with your controller.

    Take in mind, I used these settings according to my configuration which is not that great but still good :

    EVGA GeForce GTX 670 SuperClocked 4096MB
    Intel Core I5-3570k Ivy Bridge Quad-Core 3,4Ghz (3,8Ghz Turbo)
    8GB Ram
    SSD OCZ 512GB

    Maybe try to reinstall pcsx2, following the steps above.
    Or try to create a default option file inside the game, then extract it from the memory card with MyMC, open it with PES 2008 editor, choose the "Open OF2" option and browse to find the Geeee's option file, import everything, save and re-import into the memory card. It might work or not. :THINK:

    @fmicablues7: Great to see you back, I'm with Mad: hope things are better for you in real life.
    I remember you were playing a PSP PES a while back, don't recall which one though. What did you think of it?

    Hopefully, the best is yet to come.

    I tried each one of them. Well, they have classic PS2 PES gameplay, so they're good PES as a fact. But the later ones (2008-2014) lack fouls IMO and feel a bit more arcadey (but more difficult). Honestly, i prefer to play on PS2 or PC because of the comfort, but these games are great value while traveling or during break at work. :LOL:
