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

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.

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!

    @oetjhill these are probably future regen players, not yet visible in game. They will probably become visible when you progress tha game a little

    You need to have FM 13.1.3 already running and you must have loaded a game before you run MacAssistant. Both MacAssistant and Genie scout are no longer save game assistants, so the game must be running in the background for the data to be loaded.
    Stam is working on the troubleshooting page, and you will soon be able to track all issues from within
    Until then, you can visit to report and track the progress of any known issues.
    Graphics and Lang.db support will follow in the next version(s), for now it is not applicable.

    Looks like I'm having a similar issue as a couple of other players.

    I'm running - FM Version 13.1.3
    Mac OS X 10.6.8

    It opens fine, but it doesn't find players when i search. Ive noticed though that the 'graphics location' is under fm12 graphics and the game location is users.

    I found my lang-db.dat, which folder should it be placed......

    Last year when i used genie scout with wine bottler, when you clicked load game it came up with my saved games to click on. Should MA do this or does the game need to be loaded.

    Will regens be there.

    It would be great to have a trouble shoot page for things like this that may be easy to answer.

    BTW Thanks for all the hard work with this, i will definatly be donating when i can get it to work.

    Thanks again.

    Keep up your good work thanoulas! Thanks a lot.

    Just quick question, why there are some player i found in MacAssistant cannot be found in game?
  • thanoulas's avatar
    @Ramival If you cannot open a .dmg file, you're probably not running Mac OS X. This is not a Windows application!

    @costinhaScout You need to search for something!?
  • costinhaScout's avatar
    man! version 3.1.3 it seems to work, because i can see the date of my game in the right corner (down) in macassistant's window, but it doesnt show players why?
  • Ramival's avatar
    hi guys. sorry for my ignorance but it's the first time i'm gonna use it. Now i dowloaded the file but it's just a .dmg file and thus i can't open it. what else do i require to make it run?

  • antisborrat's avatar

    The only lang_db.dat file I have on my computer is one from FM11 <erm>

    So at the moment it cannot load a gain.

    But this is all academic anyway as it won't even let me change the root of the files it searches for in the preferences

    13.1.1 is not and will not be supported. 13.1.3 is a minimum requirement.
  • hirwan_dzahir's avatar
    Hi, its looks like MacAssistant crash after loading. Using Mac 10.6.8. FM13 13.1.1
