News - Football Manager 2013 Patch 13.2.1
Sports Interactive just released yet another hot-fix update for Football Manager 2013 via Steam. This 13.2.1 patch will help fix some issues of the match engine.

To update you will need to close the game down and re-launch for it to update. If this does not work for you or you feel it has not updated you will need to restart Steam.

Released: 24 December 2012

Once updated the version number will be 13.2.1, more specifically the full version numbers will be:
PC: 341620 Mac: 341502

For those playing the Russian, Korean, Asian or demo versions the version will be 13.2 with the version numbers below, for a short while longer:
PC: 341019 Mac: 341027

As with the previous updates:
  • It is save game compatible allowing you to continue your current save game.
  • There are no database changes, if you start a new game the database number will remain 13.0.0.

The changes in this update should help to fix the following issues:
  • Players dribbling through the middle of the pitch too easily, too often
  • High number of goals per game
  • Teams winning games by margins of 5+ goals far too often

You'll find complete changelog below.


  • Further refined engagement of ball player
  • Toned down speed players can run with ball a little
  • Slight toning down of run with ball probability
  • Fine-tuned kick and header accuracy a little further

    @princejero: It's indeed sad we have seen so many patches since the public beta was released, and yet people are still having problems with certain aspects of the game.

    @djokanice: Write in English please on this site. All official updates are automatically downloaded and installed through Steam.

    @slasher: New GS13 version was released early this morning for that reason.

    @smokeydogg: I don't know. Your best bet is to ask on the official SI forums.
