    @surf thanks for the suggestion, we'll certainly take them into account for our next release!
    @timmymc could you please let me know what version of MacOS you are using? Thanks
  • timmymc's avatar
    I repeatedly have the error that I haven't authorised the process, I delete, re-download and yet I get the same problem again. What do I need to do differently?

    The error is:

    "MacAssistant RT could not access the FM process - not enough access rights. Did you authorise MacAssistant RT when you were asked to?"

    Feature request: tabbed searching

    I have a couple of different searches i like to do: young players with high potential, players nearing free contract, players from my own club, players from other clubs.

    Every time i want to switch from one to the other i have to delete the search settings and prepare new ones. It would be so much easier if it was possible to have a few tabs to save each search to one of the tabs. No more deleting and remaking all the searches.

    @dubby151 question marks on stats page? What do you mean exactly. Never in the last 6 years I've been developing this app have I ever seen question marks in the stats page! Not complete? Each version is an iteration from last year, adding new features every time! What do you want for it to be complete?
    If you, or @rahulrego have issues seeing the In-Game Assistant, you can contact and they'll help you.

    Hi, I'm having trouble with the mac assistant rte, particularly the in game editor I've tried reloading the skin and game multiple times, no success
  • dubby151's avatar
    and where is in-game assistant meant to be - ticked it in preferences then reloaded skin and nothing.
  • dubby151's avatar
    So dissapointed in this. It's been out since October so nearly 4 months now and still not complete. I get question marks on all of the stats page so dont know what I am changing. When i save it never saves in the game first time of asking. Any work around for this? And yes I have a paid licence

    Hi, in fm scout 17 for PC, you can search after a player based on his role, like box to box midfielder. Is that something you are looking to develop on macassistant as well? I thought it was a great thing to have.
  • thanoulas's avatar
    @andymathias, @Marianomaida please contact for help with your query.
    @doney070707 FMRTE is for Windows, iFMRTE is for Mac like MacAssistant. MacAssistant, however, offers features that iFMRTE doesn't. I will obviously tell you that MacAssistant RT17 is better :D
    @CaptainAllasFun licenses are automatically emailed at the time of purchase. Unfortunately, we can't provide support outside of working hours. You did however get a response on Facebook on Sunday night, something we don't normally do.
    We do suggest you always check your spam/junk folder for our emails before contacting our support team, chances are you will find the emails in there 99% of the times.

    anyone can sell me a license? seems RT support doesnt work...please contact me if you can sell me your license thanks
  • CaptainAllasFun's avatar
    what is the point to ask people to pay for your services, when there is none at the end of the day is very frustrating...we bought 3 licenses, none of it where given by email, even over answer to emails...don't build a software if you can't provide the support to ppl that are willing to pay for it. make sure you can live up to your promises...HNY
  • CaptainAllasFun's avatar
