    I believe FMTU is the future of transfer updates. Anyone (with a free member account) can submit missing changes using a user friendly transfer wizard that's much easier to use than the pre-game editor. Then a team of admins approves the submitted changes. There are hundreds of changes added daily, while the downloadable update is repacked every morning. Check it out at
