PES 2021 Sider 7.2.0 Special Edition – a new version of the “Special Edition” program from the nineteenth of April adding files for eFootball Pro Evolution Soccer 2021.
Features from the Author:
You may not want to upgrade from version 7.1.6 to 7.2.0 because the two versions implement sider initial loading logic differently.
In version 7.2.0 Special Edition, everything works the same as in the old days of kitserver – where PES2021.exe is fixed to load sider.dll on startup. This way you don’t start sider, instead you just start your game and it loads sider.dll. There is no sider.exe in 7.2.0 because it is not actually needed in this scenario. (The original motivation for taking this path with the Special Edition was Steam Deck because it didn’t work well with sider.exe)
In version 7.1.6, this logic is different: you run sider.exe, then it starts the game and matches sider.dll with the game process using Windows Hooks. This actually works fine on a normal Linux distribution like Ubuntu for example. But it doesn’t work well on Steam Deck.
In any case, in short, an upgrade might not be worth it if you’re used to a certain way of launching the game.
After installation, launch the game with PES2021.exe
So that there are no questions after installing the new Sider 7.2.0, copy your registration from the old sider.ini to the new one, from the sections – cpk.root = … and lua.module = …
