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.

A lot of exciting features and improvements are coming too, in later releases.

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!

    The update for 13.3.3 is now out, get it with MacAssistant RT's autoupdate feature. I'll update the dmg disks on Tuesday

    Cheers, have a fun long weekend playing FM! :)

    What time will it release???
  • ASCATES's avatar
    Great - cant find update? Where do I go as it only shows old version??
  • ConSlom's avatar

    My asking prices always seem to be a long, LONG way off. An example of this would be it suggesting to ask for 75mill for Rodrigo, who I couldn't sell for 35! I was just wondering if you knew about this and if you had a timescale for fixing it?

    By the way, I would like to say, other than the asking price, this is a phenomenally reliable and solid app! Thanks for making it!

    If there was one suggestion I could make it would be that is there a chance you could make it so that when you close the apps window, it stays running until you quit it? Just it can be a pain to have to load the game every time you accidentally close it! Other than that, PERFECT.

    I'll release an update today
  • ASCATES's avatar

    All new to this but I have the latest patch and its not working with latest version?
    It was working with old patch but no with current 13.3.3?
    Is there anyway round this or do I need to wait for update.
  • recordfair's avatar
    does the 10.6 version work with FM13.3.3 as im getting the outdated message?
  • thanoulas's avatar
    @themerse is the issue going away when you close the game and start it again? I've seen this issue before but I've never managed to track it down as it has never happened to any of my saves. Can you upload your save to

    Are there any ways to solve the problem of players clubs displaying innacurately? Quite often MacAssistant is listing a huge number of players as being at some obscure south american or african team for me. It's a problem when I want to search for my own players using the 'team - contains' search option.

    Also- any way to solve another issue I'm having with the surnames of some regens not displaying at all?

    example of both problems-

    @irishceltic sorry for the confusion. I wasn't planning on revealing this, but the only editing plans I have for MacAssistant right now is the ability to edit transfer and wage budgets for clubs. Adding full editing capabilities in MacAssistant is really hard work.
  • irishceltic's avatar
    it was told at the Live Editor comment page:

    @ANDYLAD52: I'm glad you feel that way. The plan was to create a free alternative to FMRTE with essential features only that would work faster and be easier to use. We'll be adding new stuff into it slowly, based on what you guys request the most.

    @irishceltic: Initially MacAssistant RT doesn't have any editing features, but it shall start having them in upcoming versions. Thanos (the author) is the only one who could create a Mac alternative of this tool, but he said he'll start implementing editing in MacAssistant instead.

    @kk1138: Thanks!

    @Richard76 not yet but it is planned for a future release

    The staff search now works great but can you tell how many stars the coach will have for each training category using mac assistant??
  • Nairmb's avatar
    The app crashes everytime I try to do a Staff search.
  • brady1983's avatar
    Hey Thanoulas, i'm just want to say thanks for all your work on creating MacAssistant, you have made a great game even better. Cheers
  • ahyang20's avatar
    Hi Thanoulas, I think there might be a bug with the PA search option of the staff attributes. The MacAssistant will automatically exit whenever I try to search for staff PA.
  • thanoulas's avatar
    @clarkey1987 hm, I don't quite remember about transfer listed players right now to be honest, but you can search for coaches with a skill > 19 for a 5 star coach for example. Just choose "Coach" on the right hand side filter options, then set a number from 1-20. stars are value / 4
  • clarkey1987's avatar
    Brilliant App mate, can we use this version to search for transfer listed player and also can you search by star rating a coach will be?
  • thanoulas's avatar
    @irishceltic I'm not sure I ever said anything about editing...
  • irishceltic's avatar
    I really hoped that in this version I was able to edit some things.. will that be in another update?
  • marcodecuadro's avatar
    many thank you very much friend, it's amazing that you've upgraded so fast!
  • thanoulas's avatar
    @Smile25 make sure that you have loaded the game inside FM13 before using macassistant, it need to be running in the background. Then wait through the finding offsets process, it takes quite some time to do that, maybe 2-5 minutes depending on your system.
  • Smile25's avatar
    Hey, thanks for all the work, but every time I try to launch the assistant, it keeps loading on Finding Offsets... I've located the game, the graphics folder etc... But it wont work. What should I do ?

  • sanbenno's avatar
    Thank you for the update. I know a scouttool is considered cheating for so many. But I just love using it in one save game
