News - Football Manager 2012 Summer Transfer Updates
The summer transfer window has been officially closed, even though there are still a few more hours/days left for free agents depending on the country. It's the time of the year we seek a new challenge for a save game, and having the latest real world transfers is exactly that.

A lot of people are asking the same question every year around this time: Will there be an official data update for the summer transfers? The answer is NO. There never was an official summer patch. Summer data update always comes with the new game release.

However, Football Manager is known for its loyal and powerful community. Certain people create unofficial data updates every year by using the official data editor. These unofficial updates can be used in your game and have nothing to do with pirate copies; they are editor data files you could create yourself.

While we haven't created our own data update for this cause, we are glad to present you with all the quality data updates made around the scene.

Let's have a look at what they do and how you can apply them to your game...

How to Install

First you need to choose which update you want to go with, 1 of the 4 available data updates, and download it.
* Extract it if it's a .zip or .rar archive before moving to the next step below.

→ Place the downloaded file in
My Documents/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2012/Editor Data
For MAC users, the path is
Macintosh HD/users/{your-username}/Documents/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2012/editor data
Create the last folder if it doesn't exist.

→ Start a new game and when the database box pops up, click the 'change' button and tick the box next to the file you have chosen to go with.

Enjoy! :)

Made an update yourself and want to see it here?

Most important requirement is to release the update free for all, so we'll only point to download links that require no registration.
