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 2016

  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 2016 / editor data
    Create the "editor data" folder if it doesn't exist.

  3. Open FM 2016 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.

    I know I'm late here but I have a new laptop but am still using FM16 and have downloaded this update (which I used without a problem on my old laptop) but this time around it's not the same, unfortunately. I'm having zero problem downloading but my Sports Interactive folder isn't showing in WinRAR when I want to extract the files. Can anybody be of any help as to why this is happening?

    rudyaddo, use only my files from my last pack, and not previous files from me or another creator. Also make sure you are using the original game updated to 16.3 patch.

    I cannot select the spanish nation
  • StojC's avatar
    pr0, then I must have done something wrong. I will check again. I apollogize. Great work!
  • TheNotoriousPr0's avatar
    thev, thanks mate. I really appreciate it :)

    Spanish Red, he is actually set as manager in his team many packs ago. Do you use also other files than mine, or previous files from me? Because you have done something wrong.

    Khorne, thanks :)

    StojC, I have to disappoint you, but they are both in the teams you are mentioning.

    benkhowe, use only my files from my last pack, and not previous files from me or another creator. Also make sure you are using the original game updated to 16.3 patch.

    When I load a new game I cannot select England just not there with a ! next to where England should be to select England League
  • StojC's avatar
    No Berghuis @ Feyenoord
    No Wijnaldum @ Liverpool
    This sucks a bit...
  • Khorne's avatar
    Excellent work as usual !
  • Spanish Red's avatar
    Great work as usual! Also, as usual, what stops this from being the best update is the little oversights which are annoying to find out once a new game is started and all set up. One of the first ones this time is Roberto Di Matteo. He has been the manager of Aston Villa for a while now or were you not aware of that?

    Chris, Just wanted to say. I' a religious follower of your work. For the past year, I keep downloading your updates the moment you release them. I love to keep my game updated and you've always been the one I turn to. For a game like FM and most of us players being very picky and detail-loving, your work is a godsend. Thank you for the past year for FM16. Looking forward to continuing in FM17
    You are awesome mate

    Just wanted to say thanks to everyone. Thank you for your faith, your loyalty and your suggestions all summer. Also a big sorry for the leagues I haven't done, or the missings that I didn't include. I did my best the whole summer to include as much as possible though.

    Have a great time until FM17. great games, lot's of luck with crossbars and penalty shoot-outs and we will catch up again for FM17.

    As you may know, all this huge work is for free and a lot of time is spent editing. So for those who want to donate to say thanks in a different way, my paypal account is [email protected]


    ◘ Remove ALL my previous files and add ONLY the new ones, so they won't conflict with each other

    hiya pro, first massive thanks for everything you've done its extremely appreciated. not sure if they've been mentioned but its extremely small detail and as I'm a aston villa fan i notice these things haha...

    our chairman dr tony xia is called xia tony on the game so would be good if you could just change the name around and also would be great if you could add our ceo keith wyness onto the staff instead of a random chairman. the following change is one i realise was after you published your pack but to inform you that steve round has become villa's director of football and lastly concerning salford city not all of the class of 92 are owners?? anyways thanks again pr0 looking forward to update tonight

    nice work bro thanx
  • TheNotoriousPr0's avatar
    Due to my personal desire to update furthermore (will try to update the 2nd divisions of Germany + Spain) , and having real life business to take care of, I will delay the release of the final update. SO... The final release is coming on the 12th of September, probably early evening. Keep the suggestions coming, 2 days left!
  • pw75's avatar
    Downloaded the update but just noticed that in my game Spurs are in the Club World Championship!!!
    Looked at the winners of the Champions League and it does state Real Madrid but think you have an error somewhere as Spurs defo in the Club World Championship!
  • londrakan's avatar
    Hey you guys! I'm so appreciate that patch and wanna see final version. Is this version coming out soon?

  • Shanamaj's avatar
    Please update Romanian league, transfer window still open so changes also after September 1st:
  • TheNotoriousPr0's avatar
    Space-Pirate, you should use the original game updated to 16.3 patch.
  • Space-Pirate's avatar
    This is a wonderful data pack. However, Zinedine Zidane isn't even the coach of Real Madrid in this. In my save game, Madrid hired Gerardo Martino!! Please fix this. Thanks.

    Good job. Can you upgrade to PS-Kemi Kings team? Finland Premier league. Billy Ions left pskemi -->SJK. Kaby (Aliu Djaló) left -->Crawley Town FC Sky bet 2 division. ERIK TÖRNROS loan PSkemi (can not find the whole team) the whole team

    Valmentaja = Coach
    Apuvalmentaja = Assistant coach
    Mv-valmentaja = Goalkeeper Coach
    Hyökkääjä = Forward
    Keskikenttä = Midfielder
    Puolustaja = Defender

    I have the official winter update 16.3 and I can select all the 20+ different changes when I chose my custom db. But it doesn't work. It cannot see any different. I installed the no fake and I can get the German NT though.
  • TheNotoriousPr0's avatar
    Boolbi & DiogoF8 , thank you guys :)
  • DiogoF8's avatar
    Awesome work, every transfer up to date in my team.
    I installed the WizzKids and there where some players that were not to date, this is perfect.
  • Boolbi's avatar
    Thank you, awesome work
  • TheNotoriousPr0's avatar
    DNeves07, seems like I have to rename my files from "updates by pr0" to "◘ IMPORTANT NOTICE : YOU NEED THE OFFICIAL 16.3 PATCH TO MAKE THESE FILES WORK". I have told that thing like a million times until now.

    ExtinctionFMCL, yeap you are right, this needs a fix.

    serkie, you are welcome :)
