    I just started a save with this update using the Chicago Fire of MLS. The team has two copies of Mo Adams. They are also missing starting Goal Keeper Richard Sánchez.

  • Len's avatar
    @GWhte84; Those are not on FMScout. You should google for it.
    @Willz: we have merged our old database with the 18.3 database. Meaning; all transfers that have been corrected by SI are removed from ours, the ones they have missed (and that are a lot!) are done by our update.
  • willz71172's avatar
    is this update fresh after the 18.3 update or was it done before
  • GWhte84's avatar
    @Len...... Hello mate do you know where I can find that Tempo 18 skin an the cutout megapack? as i could not find it on here
  • Len's avatar
    @Forzaroma; no we will keep updating the game throughout the season and the summer until the release of FM19. After the winterwindow ended, we will be switching to monthly or every other week instead of weekly updates.

    @Sflatos; we dont update that. Too time consuming and it would be just a minor add-on

    @GWhte84: I am using the Tempo 18 Skin and I am using the Cutout Megapack by sortitoutsi.
  • GWhte84's avatar
    Hi Len, what skin do you use? as they look pretty good in your winter updates page.
    also what face package do you use as well?
    thanks mate
  • sfaltos's avatar
    Hey there! I've downloaded the update via steam and worked just fine. The only problem was that in players' history does not appear the transfer fee.. is that a bug that will you fix in an update?
  • forzaroma's avatar
    is it your final transfer update ?
  • reicamara's avatar

    @Nath77: yes. Im not sure if we have them all, but if a big takeover has taken place, we have it updated.

  • fmsharky's avatar
    hi guys when you download the update via direct download it only loads your previous one fm inside update 1901 not 2201.
    But i downloaded it via steam and the 2201 update is in there .
    So ?
  • EL-TEV's avatar
    Fmsharky: are you sure you have deleted the past update from the editor data? You must delete the previous ones before or else the game will be corrupted as mentioned above :) worked for me as having the same problem as you
