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.

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!

    Thanos, Thank you for all of the great work you do with MacAssistant!
  • Herrjensen's avatar
    Sounds awesome, hope you've gotten the best of the sickness ;) Again thanks a lot for the great work you're doing. It's highly appreciated as it lets all of us get more out of a super game.
  • thanoulas's avatar
    Hey all,
    sorry for the slight delay but I spent my weekend in bed with the flu. I'm better now, so I'll be updating MacAssistant RT today.

    Hey guys...I think we shouldn't rush thanoulas on when he can update this excellent program. The timing of the FM2013 update is out of his control and we should just let him do his already brilliant work in providing us with this MacAssistant. I've done a bit of programming myself & I know how tedious it can be, especially when it's such a big scale project like the MacAssistant. Sometimes, if you rush things too quickly, the result may not be good. Cheers!
  • Herrjensen's avatar
    Thanks a bunch for putting in the huge effort I'm sure is involved in making the scout :) I've been a keen user for the last few updates - since I discovered it.

    Any ETA on when the new update might be ready?
  • marcodecuadro's avatar
    thank you very much! but now it does not work with the new update. Update it please! Thank you.

    hi i downloaded mac assrt but can not open what do i need or what program i need please help thx amrik
  • allyinnes's avatar
    Ok thankyou, i'll keep checking for updates
  • thanoulas's avatar
    The reason is the update and the solution is to wait for a MacAssistant update
  • allyinnes's avatar
    My fm2013 has just automatically updated via steam but now my macassist does not work, is there a reason or solution ?
  • thanoulas's avatar
    @konovic you need the latest FM version (13.2.3). There is currently a bug with the previous version, it will be fixed soon
  • konovic's avatar
    l have a problem. l get the text this dose not appear to be a valid fm save game?
  • thanoulas's avatar
    @spacemurq you can either update directly in MacAssistant by choosing MacAssistant RT > Check for Updates on the menu (if you already have the previous version)
    or download it from this page, then do the update. The next version is due out this week
  • spacemurq's avatar
    where can we download the latest version of macassistant? also, is there an estimate for the next udpate?
  • allyinnes's avatar
    I have it working now thankyou its brilliant.
  • allyinnes's avatar
    I have OSX 10.6.8 but a message pops up saying it has found fm 2013 but says i am running an unsupported version. HELP PLEASE !!!!!!!!
  • irishceltic's avatar
    hi there, any idea on when the editing options will be available in the newest update?
  • allyinnes's avatar
    Also can a players attributes increase from what they state in the editor, for example if a players passing is 17 in the editor can you get him up to 20 in gameplay with training or are the editor stats all maximum ??
  • allyinnes's avatar
    Ok cheers i'll try it tonight, just dont know how to get to my desktop whilst im on the game ?
  • thanoulas's avatar
    @cptjohnnyo As I said in the release notes, the asking price is an estimate. It is impossible to read it from the memory (or anywhere for that matter) since the game calculates it on the fly. I still haven't implemented a few cases for the asking price, such as if the player importance (indispensable, not needed etc.) which plays a big part on the asking price. Once these are in it will become more accurate
  • cptjohnnyo's avatar
    The asking price seems well off. For example the stated asking price estimate for Mateo Kovacic 5.4 million pounds but in the end Dinamo wanted 15 million plus for him. Also I tried to buy several regens via the asking price and none were accepted.
  • thanoulas's avatar
    @clarkey1987 Not yet, it will be implemented this week though, another update is coming soon

    @CPM the 10.6 version is already seeded as an update. Get the special edition from here, then just run the updater

    @allyinnes Once you've run the game and loaded your savegame, you need to switch back to the desktop, run macassistant and click the Load button. To make your life easier, just set Football Manager to windowed mode so you can see all apps on your desktop.
  • allyinnes's avatar
    i have installed macassistant and dragged it to my applications but have not got a clue what to do next ? once i have loaded my fm game how do i get macssist ??
  • CPM's avatar
    will you make a "special edition" for OS X 10.6 users too?
