Site Assistant - How to share your FM24 tactic on
If you have a winning tactic that you have created yourself, you should consider sharing it with the Football Manager community. A lot of people are not very comfortable with creating good tactics of their own, so they're always looking to try ready-made tactics.

But not everyone is familiar with using our site. With this article I'm hoping to guide you through the whole process of uploading your tactic here, adding screenshots to your submission and finally give you some quick tips on good practices for your presentation.

When someone is looking to download a tactic, presentation is of crucial importance. You need to convince our visitors that your tactic is worth trying.

Remember that you need a free member account here in order to submit a file. All you need to sign up is your email address, a username and a password.

Step 1 - Uploading your tactic file

First you need to upload your tactic file to an online location. The best place is your personal file space (members only) here on fmscout. Once you're there, click the "Upload Files" blue button on the left sidebar. Then choose your file and click Upload.

Alternatively, you can upload your tactic to a free file hosting site such as hostr. If you do that, make sure to copy/paste the link inside your submission form (see the next step).

Step 2 - Go to the FM24 Tactics submission form

You can find the link to the submission form on the FM24 Tactics area. It's located at the top of the left sidebar as a red button saying "Submit File" (members only).

Step 3 - Taking screenshots and uploading them

You should show some screenshots that showcase the details and the results of your tactic, especially the results.

You can take a screenshot by pressing Alt + F9 on your keyboard. Doing that should save a picture inside your screenshots folder which is located at Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2024\screenshots
Then you can upload these screenshots to FM Shots.

Alternatively, you can use a free screen capture tool such as gyazo or lightshot.

There's also a third option. Press Alt + PrtScn (Print Screen key) and then go to snipboard to paste your image (Ctrl + V).

Once you have uploaded all screenshots, copy/paste their links inside your submission form.

Step 4 - How to fill out the tactic submission form

Choosing a good title
The most important factor for a popular tactic is to have a catchy title. If you can't come up with a catchy title, at least make sure it's as accurate as possible. Using titles such as "The Best Tactic Ever" won't pass here.

A catchy title means using popular terms, such as "wonder", "tiki-taka", "possession", "goal machine", "domination" or similar. But if you do that, make sure it's justified, otherwise you won't receive many nice comments.

Presentation is everything
You should take a little time to write some text for your tactic. Explain a few things about how it works, what kind of players is best suited for and give some advice about training and team-talks if you can. Every bit of extra information can be valuable to those who are trying to decide whether to try your tactic or not.

Advanced settings
You can simply ignore these as I'm personally taking care of that.

Step 5 - Publish and wait

Once you're ready, click the red "Publish" button at the bottom of the submission form. An admin will see your article in the validation queue and will either publish it or ask you for some needed details before doing so. But if you follow the instructions above, 99% you tactic will get published fast.

That's it. I'm looking forward to seeing your submitted FM24 tactics on fmscout!

    Hello, I want to present my tactics with which I managed to win the championship of Serie A with Udinese. Keep in mind that each footballer's attributes should fit more or less to the designated role, as I succeed I will leave download links here. Remember to train the player individually to the role assigned to him. After friendly matches, double the intensity of training, by the way, I will leave you a screen shot of how it should look like. Take care to get the team together as soon as possible and for morale too, and yes, some results hurt me, but you have to get along with such a game engine. And I leave you with some screenshots of the game. Matches were simulated with the instant button results button. Lets me know how the tactic works for you,

    Hello folks!! I play FM since 1996 :). It was CM2 that i got hooked, obviously for a life time. Played all issues and versions, did all the wonders you can imagine ( World Cup Final with Uzbekistan ;) ) along with this fantastic new FM17 really easy and succesfull. Took Metz FC, and after 2 seasons i have 4 silverware already and play CL regulary :)...but, but, but......I live in Serbia! And legal softers in Serbia are like unicorns. Excist only in stories, for the vast majority of us who work for 200 euros per month. So, i have cracked version which i bought from rich kid for 5 euros and cannot play it online and use the Steam as the game is connected to his Steam account. But, no force in the universe could stop me playing new version of FM, even under this hummiliating conditions. And it is such a shame as i can garantie to you that i can replicate any real life tactics in FM..and i do it, but no way for me to share it. So, i can show you only screen shots to convice you about my knowledge, because, even if i decide to leave my kids hungry for one month, still i have no place where nor the way how to purchase the legal software! No need to mention that my bank account is under embargo and how cheerfull is life in Serbia, transitioned in capitalism. I hope that you will find my work interesting, even only seen thru pics.
    From what i've seen on the web i'm sure that my interpretation of Conte's 343 is by far most similiar to actual Chelsea's look on the pitch. Not to mention,how killer narrow attacking based systems can be in FM17. Allegri's 4312 from the Milan period, with real, full Engache role is amazing, for example.......Hope i'll find many same minded FM fanatics here, as a have a ton of topics to discuss.
    Greetings from Serbia :P
