The first release in my series of Central European Countries is Austria. This file goes from the Bundesliga (top league) to the Regionalliga (Level 3) The Landesliga (Level 4) is unplayable for now. One of the best features is that your reserves won't be wasted since a few reserve teams are in the lower leagues.
Step 1Move the downloaded file osterreichische_footballmeisterschaft_59035.dbc in your Football Manager 2014 editor data folder:
Win Vista/7/8: C:\Users\<username>\Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2014\editor data\
Win XP: C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\My Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2014\editor data\
Mac OS X: /Users/<username>/Documents/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2014/editor data/
Create the folder "editor data" if it doesn't exist.
Step 2Start a new career game (won't work with classic mode).
A little pop-up window will come up that says there is 1 enabled editor file (number changes depending on how many other custom leagues you have installed). Click OK.
Step 3After this click on Austria, then Next Game overview in the corner.
It will then bring up the lowest league, when you click the menu you can go lower! Click this then Start Game on the right.
Recommended set-up for your save gameIf you skip this part, the level 3 team you're going to choose will have few real players in the roster. We recommend taking the following steps when starting your save game to ensure you have all available real players in the database for the Austrian leagues.
So when creating your new save, do the following:
- Select the Advanced Database Size option. You'll get the Customize the Database screen.
- Click on the Add button for Nations.
- Enable the options Players based in nation and Players of nationality for Austria.
