Step 1. Downloading the game

base game
Download PES18 using the magnet link from above. If the torrent and links are not working or dead, please bring it up in the thread.

Step 2. Installing the game

After downloading the torrent, open the folder with the installation files and run setup.exe.

Step 3. Downloading and installing the 1.05.02 patch

When the game installation is done download the PES18 1.05.02 patch from here.

Once finished, extract the files inside the archive and put them in your PES18 folder.

Step 4. Downloading and installing the aesthetics pack

Get the latest official aesthetics pack from the Pro Evolution Soccer 2018 main page.

Create a "download" folder inside the folder where you installed PES18 (or empty its contents if there is one already) and extract the contents of the pack to that folder.

Please note that Final packs are usually update packs and need the Base pack to be downloaded and extracted first.

Step 5. Downloading and installing the save

Get the latest official save from the Pro Evolution Soccer 2018 main page.

Once finished, extract the archive and copy the files to your save file folder.
EDIT00000000 is the actual save file, while COACH files are optional, they are just the in-game coach pictures.
SYSTEM00000000 is a settings file that among other things, unlocks the Legend AI setting.

Downloaded save files go into C:\Users\...\Documents\KONAMI\PRO EVOLUTION SOCCER 2018\save.
If you don't have a save folder just run PES18 once and it should automatically generate it once you get to the main menu.
Close PES before copying the savedata.

Step 6. Settings and running the game

You might want to run Settings.exe in the main PES18 folder and set up several things to your own liking first.
After that run PES2018.exe as an administrator and make sure the game says Version 1.05.02 and Data Pack 4CC.

Help, the crack keeps getting deleted

Stop using Windows Security Essentials or any other terrible antivirus and get a decent one. And yes, Windows Defender will keep deleting your files without informing you even if you've disabled it. No, they are not viruses. You can set up an exception: XP/Vista/7, 8/8.1/perhaps 10.
