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 this data update to FM 2018

  1. Extract the downloaded .zip file.

  2. Move the extracted .fmf updates you want to the following location:
    Documents / Sports Interactive / Football Manager 2018 / editor data
    Create the "editor data" folder if it doesn't exist.

  3. Make a new "Career" game. Choose the "18.3.0 Update" database option and select my files.

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.

    Serbian, Return to Atlético Madrid
    On 21 September 2017, Chelsea announced that Costa would return to Atlético at the start of the next transfer window in January 2018.[138][136] On 26 September 2017, it was announced that after passing medical tests Costa signed a contract with Atlético. He was registered and became eligible to play after 1 January 2018, due to a transfer ban imposed on Atlético.[139

    richbell82, no, because I am not making graphics at all :/

    Besides costa, atletico de madri is blocked from buying players no comment

    Love the real agents file, makes FM even more realistic. Great work!
    Quick question, is there a player agents facepack?
    Many thanks

    Sad that no finance changes are made, Liverpool is still very poor even after they sold Coutinho for 163M euros..

    sfaltos, I have never fixed transfer fees in the past.
  • sfaltos's avatar
    Hey there! I've downloaded the update but the problem is that in players' history (in the information column) does not appear the transfer fee in January's transfers.. is that a bug that will you fix in an update?
