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

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!

    did you add in the feature of searching for transfer listed players?
  • Bill's avatar
    When I try to update from 0.4.0 to 0.4.6 I get the error message "The update is improperly signed." Any advice Thanoulas?
  • thanoulas's avatar
    Ok, 0.4.6 is out, use the autoupdater to get it for now, I'll soon update this post as well.
    New features:
    13.2.3 Steam Support
    (Estimated) Asking Price (need feedback on that!)
    Some bugfixes

    If you have an unsupported version, please do a diagnostic run and upload the log file in a new bug report, I'll try and release a supported version as soon as possible
  • clarkey1987's avatar
    You don't need to apologise this is a brilliant tool and I for one appreciate the work and effort you have put in on it.

    Looking forward to using this on my game
  • thanoulas's avatar
    Sorry guys, stepped into some bugs with the new Staff features, I will have to initially update for 13.2.3 and Asking Price tomorrow, then I'll work to fix these bugs for the Staff in the week. Sorry for the delay
  • GianFrangiamore's avatar
    Will the new update be coming out early today, or late?
  • dxxbox's avatar
    hi thanoulas,
    The app is indeed wonderful. By using the application, one question came up, how did you do that, i mean, on mac os, there is no ReadProcessMemory or WriteProcessMemory API, did you use vm_read/vm_write directly?

    I am so interesting on this topic, will you share some docs/guides plesae? thanks in advance!
  • thanoulas's avatar
    Yes, 13.2.3 will be supported in the next release, this Sunday hopefully!
  • themerse's avatar
    Hi Thanoulas, well done again from me, was just wondering if you're planning to update for 13.2.3?
  • raw1990's avatar
    I love your work,
    Just pointing a small bug i have came across-
    On MAC OS X 10.8.2 when selecting the app the upper bar becomes Translucent although in my deffault desktop settings its set not to.
    A very small unimportant bug but thought u should know.

    And thanks again for your great app,
    A huge fan and looking forward for the next version.
  • thanoulas's avatar
    Ok, so I've decided to go with the smallest feature releases rather than a big update. So, since I've started work on a few things, here's the next update's features. It is going to be released by next Sunday (17 Feb):

    Version 0.4.6:
    Staff search and Staff details
    (Estimated) Player Asking Price
    Some new design features
    Bugfixes for OS X 10.6
    Support for Russian Retails 13.2.2
  • patsiboy's avatar
    Hey Thanoulas. Thank you very much for the excellent support you provide for the Mac users. Mac Assistant is brilliant. Easy, quick and most of all without bugs.
    I wanna ask you a big favour.. Is it able to load shortlists from the game? (I usually play with 3-4th division teams and I always try to find good tallents, but only a few would like to sign for my club.) It would be great ! Thank you again :)

    PS. if yes, would you like to give me a hint on when would you release this update.?
  • raw1990's avatar
    Thanks to the great update system a "1 by 1 features" update is a wonderful idea as well.
    I am looking forward for the "Asked Price" feature the most.
    Cheers once again!

    I reckon we all appreciate what it is you're doing so no one has any right to moan about it. Whatever you feel would be best, no one else can dictate to you, only you know expected timescales and details. In my opinion, I think if you're happy with some of the updates now, you could release them as and when you're ready, however if you'd prefer to wait for the one massive update because you'd be more satisfied with that then do that. In other words, don't let people on here moan because they can't use certain features, you're the boss, we just appreciate that you're doing this at all.
  • thanoulas's avatar
    Hi all,
    sorry for the delay, but this is taking way longer than I thought it would. It's also a little hectic at work this week, so it is going to take a little while longer. I might have to abandon the idea of one massive update and start pushing features out one by one. What do you think?
  • oetjhill's avatar
    Hi thanoulas, any news for new updates?
    Thanks for your hard work!
  • raw1990's avatar
    Thank you very much for this beautiful app.
    Looking forward for the new version!
    This guy is doing a hard job bringing us Mac users a chance to enjoy FM like PC fans do so support the developer of this beauty!

  • thanoulas's avatar
    @jhoughton2 no, the first compatible version is 13.1.2 and every version after that
  • jhoughton2's avatar
    Hi I have the very first version of FM13 (i.e. no patches) i was wondering if you have a version of this compatible with that version because v0.4.5 doesn't work with my FM13.
  • jxg93's avatar
    Hi Thanoulas, this app is brilliant, I was wondering if you have any plans of adding a feature that shows what the player's stats will be at full potential like on genie scout?
  • themerse's avatar
    Indeed it does, Thanoulas!

    Well done on the app, it's very quick in particular and I haven't suffered any bugs that are so common with FM Apps.
  • thanoulas's avatar
    @themerse to my defense, though, it does say "Drag and drop the icon into your Applications folder" when you open it right? :)
  • themerse's avatar
    Aha. Seem to have fixed it by moving the application into Applications instead of leaving it in the virtual device it creates when downloaded. Took me two days to work that out, and I do it just after commenting!
  • themerse's avatar
    Oh and it's on steam and on Lion OSX
  • themerse's avatar
    Same problem here as Luthman, Thanulous, I look forward to hearing of any updates or solutions.
