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.

    Thanks for the update! I've a question about it, if I play it the promoted/relegated teams aren't updated. Are you still gonna update them in the near future?

    SGDynamite, At FMTU the transfers file is updated every day at 03:00 EEST, 01:00 BST, 02:00 CEST. Which means, 7 hours and 38 minutes from now, until you get the file!

    Sh*t can happen right?

    I have re-uploaded the file, with Rangers in Europa League, corrected and tested plus some small tweaks in European places. Download from the link above.
  • TheNotoriousPr0's avatar
    Seems like there is still a bug with Rangers and they don't enter the Europa league, just to let you know.

    Download link has been updated. 31.157 database changes based on the 18.3 official patch.

    Important pages to visit:

    FMTU, which stands for the online database, in which you can update the database by yourselves and see the changes applied in your games.

    updatesbypr0, a special dedicated to my files forum, with details for each of my files. Also it's the place to propose new updates, missings or discuss included changes so far.

    Next release is scheduled for the 15th of June.

    *Transfers from this pack and after are considered immediate. Yes there will be future transfers/loans, but I am working on that. Also please submit on FMTU transfers as immediate and not future, or else I won't accept them.
    **European places have not been updated in this release.
    ***You need the official 18.3 patch to make these files work.
    ****I am not updating previous FM releases, so no need to ask.
