    To all of you with missing leagues: that is because you load additional files. We can't test our update with other editted league files. If leagues do not work that is because our update is not compatible with these files. We concentrate on the existing database of football manager and not editted or new leagues that aren't in the standard database. If you want to use our update you will have to untick or delete the other files or it simply wont work.

    Yep, same issue. I can't add the German leagues for example due to one missing team (in Regionalliga).

    Otherwise great work it seems!
  • mistral's avatar
    Sadly, a lot of leagues, top 5 included, are not playable when I choose the leagues. Maybe there is a conflict with other files (I've tried all the links from pr0 with this update and not the FMTU transfer, but doesn't work for me). Too bad, I liked this great work

    @Len : Thank you for your work !
    Can you transfer Luis Henrique from Três Passos AC to Olympique de Marseille and extend contract to Yohann Pelé (until 30.06.2021) ?
  • joniicabj1905's avatar
    Two questions:
    - Is it compatible with Epic store version 20.4.3?
    - Are the transfers of the Argentinean league and lower divisions updated?

    First off, thank you for creating such content! It really does breathe fresh air into the game.

    Just wanted to know if this is meant to have the 2020/2021 league fixtures? I am only able to start games for the 2019/2020 season although I can see the transfers that have been listed.
