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 2020

  1. Open the file you downloaded with .rar or winzip.

  2. Select all .fmf files and copy-paste/extract/drag & drop them into the editor data folder, to the following location:
    Documents / Sports Interactive / Football Manager 2020 / editor data
    Create the "editor data" folder if it doesn't exist.

  3. Make a new "Career" game. Choose the database "20.4.0 Update" 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.

    @Buther, transfers that are not officially announced are not included. That's a rule since day 1. So he wasn't included in the new release.

    @nicolas_style, you are welcome :)

    @shauneyboy18, nope, at least I am not doing anything like that.

    @Hugazo, will be reviewed.

  • shauneyboy18's avatar
    Will the subs be changed in this or can we do it ourselves? Eg league matches 3 to 5 and subs available 7 to 9 and then 1 additional sub in cup matches?

    @Tofa1991, all changes I make in my files are based on the fact that the game starts in summer 2019. You won't be satisfied in you download this pack and somehow make it work for summer 2020.

    @nicolas_style, 1st of July.

    @kittyeddie, Current-Potential Ability Changes

    @BartySo, I will run it on holiday and check it myself. Thanks for raising it. Maybe you can provide more information though? Like which files are you running, or if you use any other file from another creator.

    Few things that I've noticed.

    1. Cyprus leauge clubs kind of "lost" all managers after first two seasons. It looks like all managers leave in same time. And then it takes very long time until clubs hire new ones.
    2. Somehow after two seasons played then in august I've added new manager and first everything was fine but then after 3-4 "in game days" game crashed with "unexpected error".

    @pr0 I only ever use your database and the DF11 facepacks and never had any problem until the latest update. Weird. I've tried re downloading both and still the same. It fixes when I remove Leon King and make him myself though but bit of a pain in the bum having to do that from now on everytime I download your latest pack. Cheers for getting back though.

    @kittyeddie, last year's loans (season 2019-2020), are being removed pack by pack. He is still in the database though (if that's what you are implying).

    @FMGray, there are loans in the database with more than a year (1) duration. If I remove all loans, these loans will be removed too. That's why I have to do it manually, pack by pack.

    @GMCG178, I can't do that. Make sure you are not running other files than mine (from other creators). I just made a new game and he has not any face picture at all.

    @Snackcracker, you are welcome! About Chile... We are talking about a whole nation revamp, and it's that period of the year that I am very busy to spend time on a project that requires a massive amount of time. The timing in pretty bad to be honest :/

    pr0, this is a titanic work. Thank you so much for the databases and constant updates.

    Do you do promotions/relegations? The thing is, I wanted to suggest changing the system of my country's league (Campeonato AFP Plan Vital from Chile). After the revolution on my country, football was put into a halt in late 2019 until the point of suspension, declaring Universidad Catolica (my team hehe) as champions. With this, relegations were removed from the cancelled league, but promotions were accepted. For this reason, our current league has now 18 teams (Santiago Wanderers and Deportes La Serena got promoted) and Primera B (Chile's Second tier of football) has 15 teams (San Marcos de Arica got promoted). Would you be able to change this inside the game for the next update?

    Thank you so much in advance.

    Would you be able to give Leon King (Rangers wonderkid) a new ID in the wonderkid file because for some reason in the latest pack he has a profile pic and it's the wrong person. Thanks.

    Any chance you could make the database where you cancel all loan players so it's all fresh? Obviously not the leagues what are still getting played..

    did Illan Meslier just go missing?

    @repetition, it is already known that these players are leaving on a free transfer at the end of the season. And since there are leagues that have already finished, I found it logical to start adding summer transfers as immediate and not future.

    @blackmamba9203, not it's not. If you follow my work all these years, it's that time of the year that I start adding summer transfers as immediate. After all there are already many transfers officially announced. And yes that's the way the pack is going to be released from now on.

    The aim is to get the game running in summer 2019 like it's summer 2020. Me and my team are working towards that.

    do and on fm touch please. not all play the full version
  • blackmamba9203's avatar
    Hello - is it no longer possible to make the transfers as future transfers? In past updates, for example David Silva would be leaving at end of contract, and same goes for some other players. Not sure what to do with this pack now that it is incompatible with the 2019-20 season and basically requires me to skip ahead to June 2020 for this to make any sense.

    If this is just the way this pack is now going to be released, then are there any other transfer packs that have future dates for transfers?
