FM 2016 Data Updates - Huge Database option for FM16
By default, when creating a new save-game you can choose between small, medium and large database size. This file will give you the choice of loading even more data. The huge database option adds nearly 4,000 players to the extensive database which gives you more choices. Be careful though, a larger database may slow down your game.

This is mainly an option for people who don't want to bother with custom / advanced database settings for their game. Huge database will load more players compared to the other database size options.

  1. Use a tool such as 7-zip for Windows or The Unarchiver for MacOSX to extract the contents of the downloaded .zip file.

FME was founded in 2004. On our website you can find a database update, which is our main product. But we also create some graphics as logos, kits or faces. Moreover, there is also a Coaching Academy which helps the members who want to understand the tactic aspect of the game. At last, you can write your story and/or read the stories of our members. We hope we will meet you soon on our forum.
