News - Football Manager 2018 Patch 18.0.2 - Hotfix Update for Beta
Sports Interactive have released the first hotfix patch for Football Manager 2018 Beta and FM Touch 2018 Beta, the public pre-release version for those who pre-purchased or keep pre-purchasing FM 2018 from our store (or certain other digital retailers).

This update fixes crash issues and other bugs reported by users in FM18 Beta version 18.0.1.
More specifically, it includes the following changes:
  • Stability fixes
  • Added new preference for "data language", allowing you to have game text in one language, and the in-game data in another language
  • Added zoom functionality to 2D Classic
  • Improved pitch lighting in 2D Classic
  • Improvements to game speed and fluidity
  • Enabled Online Career and Fantasy Draft modes
That means you can now try playing a network game or a Fantasy Draft with friends!

Released: 31 October 2017

As usual the update is save game compatible, so you don't have to start a new save game.

To update you will need to close down Football Manager 2018 (or Football Manager Touch 2018) and re-launch for it to update. If this does not work for you or you feel it has not updated you will need to restart Steam.
Even if that doesn't do the trick, then verify the game cache will.

List of changes

- Generated player & staff portraits disabled
- Launch may hang on a white screen
- Game may hang on black screen after splash screens
- Text on Retina Mac display not sharp

- Default attacking corner routines lacking variation
- Some red & checkered flags showing in crowd
- Camera height can reset on game reboot
- Unable to disable in-match condition icon

- Too many loan rumours in the social feed

- Assistant may not arrange youth team friendlies when instructed to do so if there are no competitive matches
