FM 2013 Tools - MacAssistant RT for FM13 - Exclusive
MacAssistant RT is a real time scout tool for Football Manager 2013. It supports Mac OS X 10.7 and 10.8, and the latest 13.3.3 Steam version of FM2013.
Exclusively available from

Picking up where MacAssistant 2012 left off, the work continues on MacAssistant RT for FM13.

Released: 29 November 2012 - v0.4
Updated: 29 March 2013 - v0.5.1

Redistribution Policy:
People who want to put MacAssistant RT on other sites, you may link back to this very page but you cannot host any files yourselves. Thank you!


Current MacAssistant RT version 0.5.1 supports:
  • FM13 version 13.3.3, 13.3.2, 13.3.0, 13.2.3, 13.2.2, 13.2.1, 13.2 and 13.1.3
  • FM13 Russian Retail 13.2.2, 13.2 and 13.1.3
  • Mac OS X 10.7 and 10.8

Update 0.5.1

Use MacAssistant RT's autoupdate feature to update the application. If you selected the option to be notified when a new update is out, a message will appear once you launch the application.
If this is a fresh install, simply drag the icon in your Applications folder, and then run the updates to make sure you have the latest version.


After SI's decision to lock down the saved game files this year, the only solution was to get the data from the memory, and that is what I did with MacAssistant RT.
  • Ability to scout for players
  • See the player's statistics in detail, as well as their hidden statistics
  • Amazing predicate editor, so you can search for that awesome player you couldn't find till now
  • Automatic application updates keeps you up-to-date with new features
  • Person Statistics
  • Player Status icons in search results
  • Player Contract Details
  • Nation Flags
  • Player reputation
  • Fitness / Jadedness
  • Reset Search terms
  • Case-sensitive or Case-insensitive search
  • Player faces (megapack) support!
  • Detects running version of Football Manager
  • Search for Free Agents, Expiring and Expired Contracts
  • Added Ctr, Loa, and Lst Player Statuses
  • Estimated Asking Price (Not 100% accurate yet)
  • Staff Search
  • Staff Detail Panel
  • NEW!! Support for 13.3.3
  • BUGFIX! Fixed some minor memory leaks
A lot of exciting features and improvements are coming too, in later releases. MacAssistant RT will include shortlisting functionality, so you can save the players you find in MacAssistant RT and load them in the game, without the need to search again for them. Clubs, Nations and other game objects will be included as well, all through a constant stream of monthly updates you'll get from the application's smart auto-update system.


Support MacAssistant RT

Instructions for the First Run

The first time you load the app, it will ask for your password. Please fill it in because it's important that the app will run with root access, otherwise it will quit.

Also the app will try to locate your game's lang_db.dat file automatically. Please, open preferences, by clicking the MacAssistant RT menu bar and then Preferences after you've successfully loaded a game, to make sure that the file was correctly located. If it wasn't, please click on the default path and point it to the correct location. The game, however, can still load fine without it, so you can safely ignore this for now, until all the new features are added.

Bug Reports

MacAssistant RT will also need your help! Due to the fact that I had to completely rewrite the loading engine, it is to be expected that there will be some bugs to hunt down and kill. Reporting any bug you come across is vital, and this will be handled by the new bug tracking system.
So if you find a bug, please file a bug in the issue tracker, and I'll try and fix it as soon as possible.

Feature Requests

You can always request a feature that you want that will make this tool better! Just leave a message in the official MacAssistant RT Forums!
Any doable feature requested will make it in the next release if it's not that time consuming. But if it is, you'll probably have to wait a few releases. It's still gonna be added!

  • thanoulas's avatar
    No ETA, it will be ready when it will be ready.
  • Herrjensen's avatar
    That is excellent news indeed :) Any idea of an ETA yet?
  • thanoulas's avatar
    Work on FM 2014 support has already started ;)
  • Herrjensen's avatar
    Hey thanoulas. I know it's perhaps quite early, but any chance that we get a 2014 version? Been enjoying FM2013 immensely with your scout so would hate to miss it for 2014 :)

    Hey guys, I'm using Mountain Lion 10.8.4 and the program can't seem to update to 0.5.1 through the 'check for updates' option. It just says 'an error occurred receiving update information'. Any ideas how to fix this?
  • thanoulas's avatar
  • voehahn's avatar
    It's says i'm running unsupported FM version.. =(
    I'm running 13.3.3 Russian Steam and 0.5.1 Assistant the latest version..

    Please help.. I have run diagnostics, where to upload the file?
  • ASCATES's avatar
    Is the players Sale price / Asking price correct as i can never get a player for the value listed?

    It always seems to be much higher?

    Does anyone else find this?
  • k1rups's avatar
    Hey I've downloaded it and I want to remove a manager from the save I have at the moment but can't figure it out.

    Any help would be appreciated thanks :D
  • Itzatez's avatar
    Hummm I started using this great tool, but it reports lots of players that dont exist… Specially loads of brasilian players.

    Is this normal behaviour? Or is this a bug? If its normal how to deactivate it?

  • Stevenel4163's avatar
    This doesn't work maybe because the Version in download link of this page is the V 0.5.0 and not the V 0.5.1 as it's said in the presentation ;)

    You have to update the v 0.5.0 before using MacAssistant RT.
    Go to the toolbar --> Check for updates ;)

    It will work then !
  • thanoulas's avatar
    Please post a diagnostic log to the bug reporting tool (File > Run Diagnostics)
    and keep in mind that the only supported version for 13.3.3 is the one from Steam. If you have a different version and you want support for it, you need to post a diagnostic log, so I can implement it in a bugfix version.

  • mambo12's avatar
    Running the latest version for 13.3.3. However search doesn't seem to work and no results appear.
  •'s avatar

    I'm running FM version 13.3.3
    and Mac OS X 10.8.3

    but it doesn't work
    it says Unsupported FM Version.

    can't find out what's wrong

    I'm afraid I haven't tracked down the name bug yet but it's surely there. I am going to make some experimental builds with an alternative way to read the names, hopefully I'll manage to fix it this way
  • milan97's avatar
    It's pretty good, but there is a name and country bug which I have reported. Very useful in a future update would be star ratings for coaches and ability to search for players who are on the loan list.
  • thanoulas's avatar
    Yes, 10.6 version is up to date. Make sure your MacAssistant RT version is 0.5.1 (from the menu: MacAssistant RT > About
    If not, in the same menu, choose check for updates and do the update.
    If yes, can you please do a diagnostic run and upload the log file in a new bug report?

  • FM100's avatar
    does the 10.6 version work with FM13.3.3 as im getting the outdated message?
    I am running the latest version and updates. It doesn't work.
  • robin128's avatar
