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.

    GMCG178, basically I can see now that Sam Allardyce has an option activated. He is retiring in-game and that's why he won't exist in the game. But I will fix it for my update, no worries.

    pr0 Yeah always run a large database with nearly every European nation and Brazil and Argentina.

    GMCG178, do you run a large database?
  • GMCG178's avatar
    Do you know why Phil Cannon and Sam Allardyce aren't actually in game but are in the database when you search them in the editor.
  • TheNotoriousPr0's avatar
    @Gunner4Lyfe, Yes I will, but I want to test some things first, before releasing this file.

    Can you add the Japanese league to the update?
