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.

    @pr0 Shoya Nakajima isn't on loan he was bought and he shouldn't be this bad, it's awkward because he was buffed after the beta and now he is back to his original stats.

    @pr0 Sporting CP doesn't have a B team anymore, they have U-23 team that plays in a U-23 league, this is a new competition that isn't in the game it's called Liga Revelação Sub-23.

    pr0 i understand you updated the Belgium league's. but what i said before about Lierse SK is not up to date. no hard feelings, just wanna play with my childhood club :)
  • TheNotoriousPr0's avatar
    Scheyltjens, did you download the pack above and you have to say that I haven't updated the Belgium leagues?
  • Scheyltjens's avatar
    Hi, no update for the belgium league? Lierse SK went bankrupt in second division. their succecors are KSK Lierse Kempenzonen (previously Oosterzonen) in 3 division. Also a part of the fanbase gathered at Lyra TSV (5division) there new name is K Lyra-lierse SK.

    lierse kempenzonen play's in the old stadium of Lierse SK

    @mahony88, do you use FMTouch maybe?
  • mahony88's avatar

  • EriS's avatar
    Hello everyone,

    Does anybody know if Riqui Puig's ( Barcelona wonderkid,he really is) CA/PA abilities have changed because he should have better stats based on his real life performances. Thanks ;)

    @alexpuk2002, Steve Evans was updated in the official winter patch (18.3). So if you don't see him, then maybe you didn't load the files with the 18.3 patch.
  • alexpuk2002's avatar
    Just downloaded this and it seems that Peterborough United don't have a manager. Steve Evans who is the Peterborough manager is still at Mansfield town. Everything else seems to be ok. I have check on the FMTU website and it does say Steve Evans is the manager of Peterborough so not sure what is going on. I don't have any other editor files excepted the ones in this pack
  • TheNotoriousPr0's avatar
    We are up boys!

    88.822 changes until the 1st of September!

    Check the download link!

    @joebcfc, what do you mean by "the premier league to level 22 leagues"?
  • joebcfc's avatar
    @pr0 basically is there a way where in fm 18 you can have the premier league to level 22 leagues (the leagues updated e.g. Wolves in Prem) and have the transfers at the same time?
  • TheNotoriousPr0's avatar
    @IronicThread77, yes the files work only with the full version of the game, because FMTouch won't let you choose additional files.
  • IronicThread77's avatar
    Tried downloading to my fm touch 2018 on my Mac but the downloads are not found when creating a career... Is it because I'm using fm touch?
    If not I would appreciate any help.
  • TheNotoriousPr0's avatar
    @karcho, Is your pc good enough? Because now that my pack has too many changes in it, it would be a bit heavier for your pc to handle all these changes. Also make sure you don't use any other files beside mine.

    @sketchz89, you can find them here: Wonderkids

    @Oktavi_30, you need the official 18.3 patch to run this pack.
  • Oktavi_30's avatar
    virgil still in soton, cou in LFC,
  • sketchz89's avatar
    Could someone list the 25 new wonderkids as I did not purchase the editor? Thanks in advance.
  • karcho's avatar
    hey,i have an issue because my game keeps crashing on the transfer deadline day,it was all good until the last patch,im not sure but it might be the reason why my game keeps crashing,every new career i start crashes on the 31st of august ( deadline day )
  • TheNotoriousPr0's avatar
    @jonboy, in the 18.3 patch he had 147 CA and I increased that number to 156, I will raise him a bit more though.

    @rapt91, Yes he left, thanks for pointing that! In my opinion. it's not a good idea, starting the game in 2018.

    @Naysmith, no that's way to hard and time consuming to fix.
