PES 1.3 released!

Post by Neil »

Dear all,

I am pleased to announce the release of PES 1.3 for the Raspberry Pi and Raspberry Pi 2.

All users are encouraged to update to this new version as it addresses a number of bugs and adds new features and additional emulator support.

One of the main new features is that PES 1.3 will automatically partition your SD card for you when it is first booted.

  • Fixed page total bug in game thumbnail menus
