Transfers Update

  • Transfers from all around the world from the very best leagues to the small ones
  • Contract changes to reflect corrected wages
  • Managerial changes
  • Passed away players / staff are removed from database
  • Corrected squad numbers
  • In some cases adjusted personal attributes such as height and weight
  • Added favorite clubs, favourite staffs and so
  • Nationality changes

General Changes

  • Chairman changes - Newly created chairmen take the place of the ones who left
  • Added affiliations between clubs
  • New people created that are not in the game, and are not wonderkids
  • Stadium removals

How will this feature affect our games? Can we play this update without the CA/PA changes?
Yes, the CA/PA file is a new file beside the others. If you don't want this file, simply don't choose it when you start a new game.

How to install pr0's data updates to FM 2017

  1. Extract the downloaded .rar file using 7-zip for Windows or The Unarchiver for Mac OS X.

  2. Move the extracted .fmf updates you want to the following location:
    Documents / Sports Interactive / Football Manager 2017 / editor data
    Create the "editor data" folder if it doesn't exist.

  3. Open FM 2017 and start a new save-game with your selected databases of choice.

In case you have more editor data files:
When setting up a new game, do not have any other data update files ticked on your Editor Data Files screen except this one.
Choose only my files if you are not sure about the changes in every file. Many files together from different creators can cause crashes to the game, duplicates and other problems. Avoid using files from different creators.

    Waiisee do you have the original game updated to 17.3 patch?
  • Waiisee's avatar
    After loading the save, it still appears has the default data-base ( depay in United, Draxler in Germany, Guedes in Benfica etc ). What am I doing wrong here?

    Download link has been updated. 14.499 database changes until the 15th of May. You need the official 17.3 patch to make these files work.

    Main focus has been given to these files:

    ♦ 10.379 changes in transfers file. All confirmed transfers are set as future transfers and players will leave their current clubs on the end of their contract/will join their new clubs on the 1st of July 2017 in-game (retirements and managers are excluded). This is the last version which will have player transfers as future transfers. Starting from the next release on the 1st of June, all transfers will be immediate, so players will be immediatelly, from the start of the game, in their new teams.
    ♦ Current/Potential Abilities : (CURRENT/POTENTIAL ABILITY CHANGES)

    sturridge really needs a downgrade lfc are offloading this summer anyway but on the game he still gets picked as first choice over the others cos that's how the game is setup but downgrading his stats should stop that
    milner needs maxing out on penalties
  • interchn's avatar
    INTER's owner shouldn't steven Zhang(actually,it's Zhang Kangyang's nickname. Kangyang should be INTER's vice-chairman now).The real owner is Zhang Jindong(Jiangsu suning Football Club's chairman,Kangyang's father.).In addition,suning should become INTER’s renewable feeder clubs.
    Finally,considering Erick Thohir has already quitted(effectively),so I suggested “Zhang Jindong”should be"chairman” “owner” both.
    Thx pr0

    Hello, I'd like to know if the transfers are effective at the beginning of the game or if they are marked as future transfers. Thank you !
