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.

    sudeepdinakar, no it doesn't. Injuries will be updated for the summer packs.

    A simple question. The players who were already injured in the FM database at the start of the season(16-17) but are now currently(in real life) are not injured. Does the update reflect that ?

    Cheers for the great pack. :)

    joshpjr, you mean there are 12 players on the bench?
  • pr0's avatar
    bramcarella, can you please post them here? Thailand & Indonesia
  • pr0's avatar
    MartinsBanana, I still don't know. Right now there is no high demand for updated files. So I will delay the new update for now. I will announce a date the coming days though. Yes there are some new agents, also the FM16 agents file can work too. But you have to choose either the FM16 agents or FM17. Together they will conflict.

    Pr0, the Premier League already uses 12 substitutes. Can you change this?
  • bramcarella's avatar
    thanks, good job pr0
    and i hope you will add latest transfer from Indonesian league and thailand league. so many missing latest transfer in default database from league in asia especially in indonesia and thailand, i'm willing to help you if you are looking for link and resources about that leagues.

    But will you release them every 15 days like past years?

    Another question: Real agents and media included? Can I use those from 16?
  • pr0's avatar
    deva5tator, thanks for your kind words. Before making any change just make sure we haven't edited the same thing. Just keep that in mind. I believe that the unique ID's, is not any kind of issue. So yes, you can have both my files and yours. The only thing I would suggest you, is that before advancing on a new game, to check if anything is correct.

    MartinsBanana, Most likely it's coming on the 1st of Dec. :)

    Amazing. Waiting for this since I bought it. Will you release them in 15 days like in 2016?

    If so, I will start every week a save xD

    Love this updates. Hope you changed the needed players to better CA AND PA

    Hey Pro! Great update as always! Thank you for the effort you put in!

    Just a question, I want to add my own editor file to yours to overlap the changes that you have made specifically for my club, e.g. incoming/outgoing transfers, some data changes, finances, staff etc.

    But normally I just edit the transfer file of yours and make those changes each update, but i find it takes too much of my life to do this upon each update.

    Is there a way I can make a separate file with my changes, to overlap yours but critically not change or reset changes from other clubs that you have edited? If that makes sense... My other concern is if I create new players/staff from the original database.. are unique ids an issue? Say I create a new assistant manager from scratch, the id he/she has, will that conflict with new staff/players that you have created in your data updates. It's so confusing..

    Basically so each time you post an update, I can just download your new files and just add my one editor file with my club updates, without the effort of individually editing a whole new file from scratch..? Is this possible? Thank you! :)
