This page serves as an overview over useful software for cup-related activities. This does not just include PES modding, but also contributing to the culture around it, for example through promo material and team logos.

2D Graphics


Inkscape is a free and open-source vector editing software. It's especially useful if you're looking for a way to create team logos or interface graphics.

The wiki allows for .svg uploads and renders them out automatically; though saving a copy as "Plain" or "Optimised SVG" inside Inkscape is recommended before throwing it on the wiki, as Inkscape's default SVG output format contains a lot of editor metadata.


GIMP is a free and open-source raster editing software, similar to Photoshop (but more of a pain in the ass to use).

GIMP could be used to edit kits and faces, as well as the usual applications in promo material such as posters.


GIMP DDS Plugin is an optional Plugin for GIMP which enables it to open and save DDS files, a common format for textures used by DirectX games.

Note: Some of PES files are 'zlibbed', i.e. compressed. You first need to 'unzlib' them before GIMP will be able to open them correctly.


Paint.Net is a free raster editing software for Windows. Among other things, it allows to load and save .dds files, which are the texture format many DirectX-based games such as PES use.


Krita is a free and open-source digital painting application. If you're looking for a tool to help you draw porn of your favourite player, this might be of interest to you.

3D Graphics


Blender is a free and open-source 3d editing software. Using the addons developed by the PES modding community, Blender can be used to create custom faces for PES players.

As Blender features video editing, animation and rendering features, it can also be used for dank promo material.

IRC Clients


HexChat is a free and open-source IRC client for Windows, Linux and OSX. It comes with most of the functionality you'd expect from an IRC client, such as colour support and scripting capabilities.


Quassel is a free and open-source IRC client based around a separated client/core architecture. The core runs on your own server which keeps you connected to your IRC networks, while the clients simply communicate with the core. It is available for Windows, Linux, OSX and Android.

Quassel sports less features than your usual IRC clients, but can also be used like a regular IRC client using the "monolithic" version.


WeeChat is a free and open-source terminal-based IRC client for UNIX systems such as OSX, Linux, BSD and cygwin. While not what most GUI users are looking for, it's very modular and easily extensible.

As a terminal client, it's possible to run it in a remote shell through a tmux or screen session and attach it as needed.


mIRC is a popular shareware IRC client for Windows, featuring a lot of features you'd come to expect from an IRC client, as well as a default font that looks absolutely disgusting. It is developed by ISIS, ensuring that you'll always be behead ahead of the competition. Ironically, the U.S. army also uses it to curbstomp Pakis with their drones.



Open Broadcaster Software is a free and open-source application for Windows, MacOSX and Linux to stream gaming and other content to streaming sites such as Twitch. If you're planning on streaming an invitational, OBS is a good choice.

Furthermore, it can also be used to record gameplay footage to save locally, and for example turn into WebM files.

Note: Unless your CPU absolutely can't take it, don't use the hardware encoders (QuickSync/NVENC), as they produce an inferior quality output at the same bitrate as x264.


FFmpeg is the Swiss army knife of multimedia applications. The free and open-source command line application allows you to encode, remux, capture and stream audio and video streams in a lot of formats.

The insane amount of features make it the perfect tool to encode videos such as promos or WebMs, if you're willing to put in the time to learn it.

WebM for Retards

WebM for Retards Bakas is a free and open-source graphical frontend for FFmpeg which makes it easy for inexperienced users to create WebM files without learning FFmpeg's command line interface. If you want to show off your favourite gameplay moment or some aesthetics you've made, this might come in useful.



rigdio is an automated goalhorn/anthem player designed to ease the burden on streamers during cup events, and increase the options available to managers. It is available for download here. The source code for it is also available here. The latest versions are Rigdio v1.172 and RigDJ v1.121 as of 3rd April 2022. Patch notes


Puush is a software and service for OSX and Windows which allows you to quickly share screenshots and files. It's popular with many people from the cup, and you'll often find them linking links.


7-Zip is a free and open-source tool to extract and create various file archives such as .zip, .7z, .tar.gz/.tgz and .rar.


WinRAR is a popular shareware software to create and extract .rar archives. If 7-zip can't extract a .rar file, try using WinRAR instead.

Group Stage Matrix Tool

Group Stage Matrix Tool is a spreadsheet to automate the process of calculating possible group stage winners when only two group matches are left.

PES Next-Gen Editor 2015

PES Next-Gen Editor 2015 is an editor for PES that allows you to change cards, names and stats and so on without opening PES. Also enables longer names and special characters. Don't make tactical changes as it is unreliable and always double check before exporting your team.


VJoy emulates Joysticks or gamepads, allowing you to properly enable coachmode.


Pesutils is an open-source collection of command-line utilities to alter PES game files. Currently, it only consists of a tool to extract and compress WESYS ("zlibbed") files. Mostly of interest if you're trying to automate something.
