OPTION FILES ARE SUPER EASY TO INSTALL, HERE IS A GUIDE:

http://www.gamesradar.com/pes-2018-p...e-option-file/

What you need
A USB stick with at least 2GB space
An option file (e.g. PESUniverse, PESWorld, WEHK)
The day one Live Update

PS4
1. Download your option file of choice and unzip it.
2. On your USB stick create a folder called WEPES. Inside that folder copy all folders unzipped from the option file
4. Plug the USB into your PS4 and start PES
5. From the main menu go to Extras > Live Data Update and install the day one update (this is important, otherwise transfers won't be current).
5. Go to Edit mode > Data Management > Import teams
6. Select all teams that appear, leave all options as default and press Import. Go and make a cuppa and wait for about 10 minutes until the automatic import is done.
7. Now choose Data Management > Import Competitions. As with teams, select all competitions and Import.

Once those have imported, that should be it. Save your edit data and play a match to check everything looks right.

PC
You have two options, a PS4 option file, or (when they're out) a PC patch.

Using an OF
1. Follow the steps above but instead of copying your WEPES folder (with the OF files inside) to a USB stick, put the folder in your Documents > Konami > Pro Evolution Soccer 2018 folder
2. Once this is done start PES and follow the instructions above from step 5 onwards

Using a patch
1. Download and unzip your patch of choice, it will be an .exe file
2. Run the .exe, point it at your PES install location (probably C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Pro Evolution Soccer 2018)
3. Let it install, start the game and that's it.

Xbox One
Unfortunately there are no complete option files for Xbox One, nor will there be. Blame Microsoft. Their policies disallow the import of data which the game requires to be able to load user-created option files.

Great OT!

Still downloading the demo. Are the settings finally inside the main game or do I still need to find a "settings.exe"? Full screen 4k support?

It's not on par with consoles.
It's widely superior.
144 fps on PC vs 60 on consoles.

970, OC'd i5-6600k should run 4k easily enough, surely?

6700k/1080 here and its running mostly 144fps but its stuttering as shit and I'm running a gsync monitor.

I can't seem to find the option to disable (if there's any) v-sync but I dont event think its related to that.

Also PC servers are not live, can't get latest rosters or play online.

I think it was the anti aliasing, turned everything up full and changed the AA and it seemed smoother. Turned motion blur off too which is godly.

There's a setting in the settings thing when starting the game to put replays at 60fps. Make sure you have that checked. Default is 30.

Played on the highest difficulty and man this game is great, and the games are tight as fuck. Much more controlled and less end to end. But if you can manage a quick interception (which is much rarer now) then you can cause havok.

I've a lot to learn this year.

Yeah, it's at 60. It's just some up close ones that look like they're running through mud and ny G-Sync frame counter goes nutso.

Make sure you're aiming, left for left side, up for top half of the goal etc.

Notable changes to ML are preseason tournaments & the addition of release clauses. Similar to 2017 otherwise.

I only play ML as well and PES 17 last year was more than worth it, best soccer game I ever played. I jus Thor 18 so can't say anything about ML on it, but I trusted it and bought it.

There should be a setting.exe in the installation folder and also change the render settings in game to maximum.

I haven't played it yet as I am working, but that is what I have been reading.

I just downloaded the game off steam. I have a gtx1080, ryzen 5 1600 overclockled. gsync monitor, 165hz.

I put everything high , I am getting max FPS in game (165fps), but it seems that I get some slow downs when the screen is too crowded, even though I am still getting 165FPS. What the hell is going on?

I did not have any problems like that playing the demo.

how come I perceive frame rate drops when the FPS is maxed out and I have gsync monitor? tried with motion blur on and off, no difference.

I remember thinking the same thing with PES 2016 when I got it at launch.

Maybe they'll fix it with a patch.

Have you turned V-Sync off? If you have G-Sync you don't need V-Sync.

I remember the first time I saw this in real life, I was bemused, shouting "how's that allowed" until a fellow fan sitting next to me told me about the change. I felt a bit daft.
