PES 2017 Errors:

#1 PES 2017 Server Issues


A lot of players are complaining about server issues, it seems that on the first day of the release the game servers were down. This issue is persisting for some players and they receive this error when trying to connect to the server: “Service is unavailable!”. Other players are complaining about different error codes when they try to connect to the game servers, this is because some application or antivirus is blocking their connection. To fix the server issues and connect to the game server follow the workarounds below.


  • First, make sure that the problem is not your PC and that your internet connection is working, try to restart your router or modem and connect to the game again.
  • Make sure that the game is not blocked by your firewall or any other antiviruses that you have installed on your PC
  • You should consider setting up a port forward for it to better your online gaming experience. There are quite a few reasons to set up a port forward for Pro Evolution Soccer 2016, such as: Fewer crashes when online, Easier to play with friends, Improved connection, Less lag, More stable, Enhanced overall online experience.  If you need an open port on your router then you need to create a port forward. Open ports are used to allow a connection into your home network from the Internet. They are common in gaming, torrenting, and VOIP configurations. Use these guides to help you learn how to forward ports:

To change the game resolution go to settings.exe and to find out your screen resolution go to Desktop-> Right-Click->Screen resolution.

  • If you can’t find your resolution in settings.exe follow this: Open properties of Settings.exe and in compatibility tab, check the option that says “Disable Digital scaling on high DPI settings”.

#3 PES 2017 Crashes


Users are complaining about crashes, most of them encounter startup crashes and are unable to play the game at all and some of them encounter random crashes while playing a match but they can’t play the game for more than 10-15 minutes because it crashes.

As for the controllers, the default layout will work just fine, however, if you want to change them, you should make sure you select the right controller number for the changes to work properly.
