Hey guys, most of you probably know me from PES 2016 (I hope). Back then I uploaded patches with updated stats for PES 2016. Now I've chosen PES Galaxy as a base patch because it's the most complete patch for PES 2017 until now, probably is the patch I'm going to use this year and next year too if nothing goes wrong. I just update player stats, positions, transfers, line-ups and call-ups to the National Teams, nothing else. All the rest will remain untouched and all the credit for the leagues structure, player faces, kits and more goes to PES Galaxy team, they've made a great job and extremely fast. This is compatible with PES Galaxy 0.50 and 0.51, works fine with both. If you'd installed PES Galaxy correctly, you'll have no problems playing online either.

1) Download the file and extract it with winrar.
2) Copy-paste the EDIT file in Documents\KONAMI\Pro Evolution Soccer 2017\save.
3) Replace the old EDIT file.
4) Open the game and turn off the live updates pressing R3 in your controller. This is essential, if you don't do this you won't be able to use the updated stats and the league structures will be a mess. You have to turn off the live updates in any mode you play.
What do I mean with "Updated Stats"?
Let's cut to the chase, what does this add-on include? Basically updated stats for all the teams in the list above. Why updated stats, aren't Konami stats good? No, no way. They're terrible. With those stats, which are much more realistic, the gameplay becomes more realistic too, because you don't have overpowered players in some areas (like Boateng with 95 Ball Winning, for example) and the mid-table teams are not so underrated as they are by Konami. You can try it yourself and let me know your thoughts, I know y'all like it. Where do I get the stats from? For this edition I've chosen PKKE (PES Kings Edition), a very complete PES stats forum which I'm part of. That means I'm fully aware of the ladders we use and why that player has that value instead of having another one. Most of the sets of european teams have been updated recently (a lot by me), and I'm updating the rest, so there won't be outdated stats for any player who I include in this patch. What happens to the players who are not created on PES Kings Edition? Well, in those cases I use a mix of PSD (PES Stats Database) and my own judgement based on full matches or videos I watch online. If I don't know the player at all, it isn't created in neither of these two forums and there are not videos of him online, then I'd just let the player untouched, with the original stats by Konami.
What do I mean by "stats"? Well, everything. Player attributes, positions, special abilities, everything except for height and weight. Why, if I used to do this before? Because Konami has implemented a new line-up system with pretty cool player faces on it. The problem is that if you edit any of the appearance options in a player, the face in the line-up menu will dissapear. This includes height, weight, long or short sleeves, boots, anything. I'll just update this things in those player who don't have a face in the line-up menu or that were created from scratch, like most of the Bundesliga Players. If you guys want me to edit the players height/weight anyway, I'll do it.
The completely broken overall system
We all know the overall system is broken. It has been broken in every PES until now and probably it won't be fixed. Before complaining about any player stat, please take a look at his set, at the abilities, not at his overall. You'll find Cazorla is at 90 and Iniesta at 92, there's just one point difference between them even if Iniesta is better than Cazorla in every single stat and he even has a 6 points advantage in some areas. Or you'll find Ramos is rated 87, same as Godin, even if Godin has like a 10 point advantage in Defense and Ball Winning. As I said, the overall system is broken. I won't edit players making shitty sets just to have him on a "logical" overall. That's what Konami does and that's why their stats are so bad.
