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.

    Does creating a new game with these database files enabled still allow one to earn achievements?
  • Mauve's avatar
    Hi, when is the new update planned? Couple of players (Kabongo Kasongo,...) their transfer is missing
  • Tatavo's avatar
    First of all, thanks for all your work.
    I'm having a problem with the Serbian update. After the 1st season when 6 teams get relegated from the Superliga to the Prva Liga, only 3 of those teams show up in the Prva Liga for the next (2nd) season.
    Any way to fix this?
  • Mauve's avatar
    Would it be possible to have one for FM21? As wonder kids below 16 aren"t made
  • Dimartino's avatar
    Top work. It would be great if you guys could make a FM Touch version...

    Excelente trabajo. Por poner un error, yo juego en la segunda división B española, y el formato de competición ha cambiado y no está actualizado. Se podría cambiar eso? Gracias

  •'s avatar
    Hi the link is directing to FM21 files.
    Can you post a link to FM20 transfers pack? Thanks
  • Mauve's avatar
    Hi mate, do you have an idea when the FM21-files (like wonderkids are available?)
  • mr11_09's avatar
    Why are FM21's data files downloading?
  • Simonice's avatar
    Hello pr0 your files are awesome and they work like a charm except for the promotions/relegations on the England database where they are still the same as the 2019/2020 seasons, i tried to cancel everything else i had on the editor data folder but it still doesn't work, how come is this possible and there's a solution? They work for every other league, strange
  • nicolas_style's avatar
    Why not continue this fabulous work until the official release of Football Manager 2021?
  • TheNotoriousPr0's avatar
    @Satriya833, yes exactly.

    @redemptor, in this pack, I am not doing any club/competition name changes at all.
  • redemptor's avatar
    It is indeed a great pack! But why did you leave "Zebre" instead of Juventus?!
  • Satriya833's avatar
    oh, so pack november 1st will be last for fm20?
  • TheNotoriousPr0's avatar
    @Dan1_47, with this pack, you can't.
  • Dan1_47's avatar
    how to play in 2020/2021 season ? dont want to start 19/20
  • TheNotoriousPr0's avatar
    @nicolas_style, FMTU is currently locked until FM21 comes out and the database is updated. It was locked on the 1st of November, after I released my final pack.
  • nicolas_style's avatar
    Hi pr0, I saw on FMTU that the daily database keeps updating every morning. Is the countdown an error or is the version really still evolving?
  • TheNotoriousPr0's avatar
    @RAFAELCHIK, this was my final update pack for FM20. I won't release another. I will start working on FM21 when it's out.
  • RAFAELCHIK's avatar
    Virgil Gomis

    Geoffrey Kondogbia
    Transfer from Valencia to Atletico Madrid(contract for 4 years)
  • DJTrennel's avatar
    Hi, the update doesn't work for me. I followed the procedure but when i load a new save on fm20. i can't select the updates. However, when I downloaded the sortitoutsi update, it worked. Does this have something to do with the fact that the files on this update are .fmf while the updates on sortitoutsi are .xml?
  • RAFAELCHIK's avatar
    Oh, I'm sorry I confused him with Michael Dawson
  • TheNotoriousPr0's avatar
    @Shubham_pawar, retry please. Works fine for me.

    @RAFAELCHIK, as I can see here, Ben Watson, he is contracted for 1 year.
