News - Football Manager 2019 Patch 19.2.0
Sports Interactive have just released the fifth hotfix patch for the final retail version of Football Manager 2019.

This update has been in the works for some time now (made available to public beta users). It contains a number of fixes and tweaks, mostly for the match engine.

Released: 11 December 2018

As usual the update is save game compatible, so you don't have to start a new save game. However, any fixes related to competitions rules or schedules require you to start a new game.

To update you will need to close down Football Manager 2019 (or Football Manager Touch 2019) 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.

    Is the latest version of the Genie Scout taking ages to load the game data for anyone else? Old version took a max of 15 seconds, taking about 15-20 mins now

    I noticed the same thing when I went to scout Donnanruma on my game, right before their champions league 2nd leg knockout stage.

    I think this patch ruined my game. Before, I don't need to register Donnaruma and Cutrone, or any of my U19 and U21 players as Milan when I'm playing on Champions League because they're 20 years old or younger and has been on the club for two years. After updating, suddenly I can't do that anymore

    @All That's because it wasn't a Database Update, that's why it will still say 19.1 when you start a new game
  • richbell82's avatar
    Mine does state 19.2 on the main menu screen, just strange no file
  • RoMbA's avatar
    When you open the game, don't say 19.2 in the main menu in the lower left corner?

    Or open a game and in the Menu FM>About FM says there...

    I had an update for 250-260mb but I cannot see a 19.2.0 file in my steamapps>fm19>data>db route. I have the 3 other db folders 1900, 1901 and 1910 but no 1920 folder. I have tried doing the verify option through steam and also closed steam. Still nothing.
    Any suggestions?
