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.

    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?
  • TheNotoriousPr0's avatar

    I have noticed that in your Indian super league database the i-league format is wrong. Dsk shivajians have lifted there team from i-league. Indian arrows have taken their place. Indian arrows is filled with u-17 players of Indian team participated in u17 world cup 2017 u-19 Indian players and they are not in the database. Komal thatal has joined ATK.
    The squads are also wrong. i-league began on 25/09/2017. chennai city fc have changed their home ground. you can get all details here.
