* It was impossible to complete the “Manual-pass” training when the cursor was set to “fixed” when using Personal Data other than “no.1”.
* Sometimes the game would freeze when importing PES 2012 data. This applies to cases where implementing the data would result in players switching to wearing boots which were issued in PES 2012 Data Pack 3.
* When a new Data Pack was implemented, users were forced to restart their hardware as a message informing them of non-matching Data Pack versions would be displayed rendering some game features such as Master League Online, Competition and the Widget inaccessible.
2) The below additions due to customer requests:
* Users can now choose to enable or disable the Auto Save feature in game modes including Master League and Become a Legend by selecting [System] then [Auto Save] in order.
* Players will wear boots which are unique to them in both Master League and Become a Legend. Any editing done to player’s boot settings will also be reflected. However, please note that this only applies to save data created after the implementation of this patch file.
* Changes have been made to how teamwork levels between players increase.
3) General improvements to other modes to improve overall gaming experience.

In addition to these issues, we are also aware of the below.
the exact causes are currently under investigation:
1) Customers can be paired with users they added to the Match Block List.
2) Sometimes, the bonus prize money earned after a Special match can be shown as being 0.
3) In Inter-Community Matches, customers are sometimes unable to substitute COM controlled players.
4) If you play a 2 vs 2 match in Ranking match, but then try to play Master league Online and any other one player online matches without deleting the guest user, no matchmaking will take place.

5) After matches, customers may be returned back to the Online Main menu. An error message stating that an unexpected problem in communications with the PES 2013 server is then displayed.
For these issues, any updates will be posted on this site.
We can also report that the below issues were also fixed during maintenance on 13/11/2012
6) Courtesy level does not recover despite completing matches in the correct manner.
7) Special match bonuses could be earned in other types of matches.
