How to install this data update to FM 2021

  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 2021 / editor data
    Create the "editor data" folder if it doesn't exist.

  3. Make a new "Career" game. Choose the "21.4.0 Update" database 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.

    I have literally an article full of instructions & a video. I can't offer better help I am sorry. If anyone uses mac, feel free to help the others. Since I don't have a mac, I can't provide any solution.

    @Blacksoulreaperx, the next release is scheduled for the 10th of September. The updated packs won't stop until FM22 comess out.

    hey bro, can you update the stats of some liga nos players? Like yaremchuk was bought for 17million, made a great Euro but in fm 2021 he is trash. Same for Joao Mario that is Porto 1st right back(amazing player) but in the game he is a trash wonderkid
  • gunnersheaky's avatar
    Same issue as TJGotVibe, did what instructed however the files doesn't show up .
  • TJGotVibe's avatar
    I did this on mac, and put the fmf files in the editor data folder. My game is fully updated, and when I try to start a new career, I'm still not able to see the editor files, there is none? Can anybody help me out? thx in advance!
  • Blacksoulreaperx's avatar
    Don't want to sound rude, but are you going to add the remaining transfers of the turkish League? The transfer deadline is on the 8th september here!
  • JD4578's avatar
    Just popped on to see if there'd be an update about a deadline day pack - then I find you've already bloody well finished it! You are the absolute man. FM would not be the same without you dude!

    They have have that media prediction because the game still think those clubs are still in the Championship.
  • Reece251's avatar
    @pr0 thank you for this! Just wanted to bring a couple of things to your attention:

    - Brentford have a media prediction of 3rd in the premier league
    - Watford have a media prediction of 1st in the premier league
    - Norwich have a media prediction of 2nd in the premier league

  • Amazingortega's avatar
    Can’t seem to get it to work on mac. I verified with editor and after selecting the files at the start of the a new game it’s still not working. Any help will be appreciated
  • Dite De Molay's avatar
    Thank you for answering pr0 !! Also big thank you for your hard work and wish you have a nice day !! :)

    @wuno, 5 comments below, you can get an answer.

    @richbell82, I enjoy my work only when I am streaming ^_^
  • wuno's avatar
    how to start at 2021/2022 season?
  • richbell82's avatar
    @pr0 I fully understand that mate. So much work. How on earth do you find time to enjoy all your work?
  • TheNotoriousPr0's avatar
    @richbell82, All these days, my main focus was on transfers and I didn't add many other things (injuries included). I have to re-check the long duration injuries to add some. But in Fofana's case, which I quickly checked, he got injured in August. I am adding long-term injuries that happened in June or at least mid July. If you think about it, SI didn't include Virgil van Dijk's injury last year because he got injured in October. I know it's not October, but still.
  • richbell82's avatar
    @pr0 yeah that’s the one mate. Is he not out injured then when we start the season? Apologies I’m confused

  • TheNotoriousPr0's avatar
    @Dite De Molay, you need the 21.4 database.

    @mnfsahab, if you are a big fan of my work, you should already know that for my summer packs, every transfer is added immediately and not as a future transfer. It's not about this version. All transfers are from the start of the game since the pack back in 20 June I think. So this is happening at least 2 and half months now.

    I have never even any summer pack with back to the future file or future transfers. In FM21 the game starts in summer 2020, if you want the game to start in summer 2021 you can wait for FM22.

    And how exactly am I going to add promotions/relegations as a future thing? :D

    @grazier, it's only for the full version of the game not touch.

    @richbell82, all last year injured players, have their injury -1 year, the same I do with transfers (guess we are talking about Wesley Fofana).
  • richbell82's avatar
    Is anyone having issues with the injury file? I can select it etc. Game loads fine. But no injuries showing. For example fofana has no long injury. Yet when I open the editor file I can clearly see it’s there. Just not in game. Any ideas welcome
  • grazier's avatar
    does this work on fm touch, for pc?
  • mnfsahab's avatar
    *not only the transfers, but also promotion & relegation
  • mnfsahab's avatar
    Hey, a big fan of ur work here!

    I always love ur updates. However, not about this version:(

    I wonder why did u make the transfers happen in 2020 for this version? I remember in the previous versions, the transfers happened in summer 2021 instead of 2020. Therefore, it would perfectly match the FM 2022 by adding another file of "back to the future", that enables the season to start on May 31, 2021.

    Hello.. in database selection do we need to choose Football Manager database default 21.1.1 or 21.4.0 update? Since when I select FM database there are several that marked with ! icon and it says file need to be tested and verified in editor. But if I choose 21.4.0 update all file are fine checked marked
