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.

    @Colonel Getafe, you need the official 20.3 winter patch to make these files work. These players you are talking about are already transferred in the winter patch.

    couple of transfers post winter window that don't appear to be reflected in the download files: Victor Wanyama transferred to Montreal but is still listed in the Spurs squad, Steven Bergwjin transferred to Tottenham but is still listed in the PSV squad, Gedson Fernandes loan to Tottenham until June 2021 but is still listed in SLB squad, Jarrad Branthwaite transferred to Everton but is still listed in the Carlisle squad, and Carlo Ancelotti as manger at Everton not Napoli. Otherwise, very good updates cheers!

    @Rapid_IlluZioN, Promotions/Relegations in England are done in the "EFL League One 20-21" file and not in the "Promotions/Relegations" file.

    @tempura, I forgot to change that ^_^. Every 10 days I release a new pack, it's a "fixed" date.

    hi @pr0: when is the next release? I normally refer to the download section here but the information does not seem to be up-to-date. Please refer to below screenshot:

    @pr0 I noticed every time I load up the file in editor and the promotions and relegation aren't done with England, but the previous had them ?

    Few suggestions for CA/PA change: Alphonso Davis and Thiago need a bump. Davis acc should be 18, not 16. Thiago has a 10 in concentration, that's bad. Even Muller can need a small buff.
    Multiple Barca players need a small nerf. They are all very fast and have great concentration. Busquets, Pique, Vidal need a nerf. The wingbacks in Barca all faster than Davis, wtf? I did all this changes so no big deal for me, but maybe you want to look at it too.

    @pro i don't know how to provide a link but if it helps stockport are renting carrington for 3 years their is also an article on the county website if this helps you

    Can you remove the "coupe de la Ligue BKT" (France) in the next update ? The French league abolished this competition
  • tempura's avatar
    @pr0: i wonder why your wonderkids player ID now starts from 1915387201 (João Mendes from Cruzeiro); it was 1915387198. so, it has shifted 3 slots. Do you know why it can't remain static from the last update? The reason why this is important is because we have player faces mapped. Nevertheless, GREAT WORK my friend !

    @id777, Ukraine will be updated either on the coming release on the 20th of Sep, or on the 1st of October. I will announce it in my next changelog. Also please avoid comparisons. I firmly believe that my work this year is very completed in many terms, I don't think it's appropriate to compare it with someone else's work. Thanks.

    @roynaldo, please provide a link where I can get more information about their training ground.

    @Taiby, no it's the same about Ukraine. Either on the 20th of Sep, or on the 1st of October.

    @meclord, 2019.
