        Start patching the game from earlier patches and then apply the latest patch. Make sure that .exe file in your game is the default one. If you don’t have the idea what i am talking about then reinstall the game and then apply the patches.

      lol pes have let the fans down again. Fifa has taken over. I used to be a pes fan then the last ps3 version froze and had so many problems. They’re losing their fan base and fifa are now showing the way ;)

        Frankly as per the demo of PES, FIFA 11 just blows it.
