FM 2019 Fantasy Scenarios - Return Of The Legends for FM19
Here we go again! 4th edition of the most popular database for FM is released! This year with another expanded version that will include even more legendary clubs and players. With this update you will have an opportunity to play and manage 4000 legends spread all over the world in their respective teams.

All of the major and many minor leagues are filled with clubs which possess their all-time greats and are under the guidance of some the managers , coaches and chairmans who ever graced the game.

Winning anything in this update is a success, as many clubs and national teams have some of the best talent that ever appeared in history of football. Italian, English, German, Spanish and French clubs are strongest competitors. And not just the major ones. There are teams from Holland, Belgium, Scotland, Russia, Ukraine, Austria, former Yugoslavia, Romania, Bulgaria, Hungary or from Portugal who have good chances of winning the Champions League as much as the teams who are coming from the stronger leagues. This is like a Football Manager hard mode!

The players who are coming from the oldest eras of football are older than the ones who are appeared later and therefore are closer to their peak and reaching their full potential.

And don’t worry the likes of Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo & Mbappe still exist, but are a younger versions of themselves and are relocated to their parent clubs. Because of that your task as a manager is even more challenging as it’s up to you to develop them into world-class players they are today and if you succeed to make them a part of your squad.

This is a thrilling update which can bring any Football Manager fan into an ecstatic state of nostalgia with no doubt that they will enjoy the game even more and find it refreshing and challenging like never before. Also were done and facepack for almost all players, which will further give the game interesting.

Installation Instructions

  1. Extract the contents of the .zip file using the default zip utility of your OS or get a free tool such as 7-zip.

  2. Move the extracted "Return of the legends 2019.fmf" file to the following location:
    Documents / Sports Interactive / Football Manager 2019 / editor data
    Create the "editor data" folder if it doesn't exist.

  3. To install the facepack, move the folder "Legends facepack" to your graphics folder:
    Documents / Sports Interactive / Football Manager 2019 / graphics / facepacks
    Create the "graphics" and "facepacks" folders if they don't exist.

  4. Go to Preferences screen and then into the Interface tab. Click on "Clear cache" and then "Reload skin".
    Now you can see pictures of all legends.

  5. Open FM 2019 and start a new save-game with 19.3.0 update and only this database selected, not other databases and transfer updates.

  6. To load shortlist with all legends and managers move the extracted "Legends shortlist.fmf" and "Managers shortlist" files to the following location:
    Documents / Sports Interactive / Football Manager 2019 / shortlists

When creating a new save-game, you have to be patient because the process of loading game database takes about 2-3 hours. The problem is due to the conversion of the database from the previous series and a lot of data, which is not possible to fix it.

    Hello David!!

    First of all, thank you very much for your work every year.

    For me , your data is the best in FM.

    I would like to know, if it is possible to combine your mod with World Super League.

    Will I have a lots problems, if I combine in the editor?

    Thanks for all.
  • Frafra96's avatar

    Are there in the mod?
  • Lockon Stratos's avatar
    guys, did anyone know what type of skin they used?
  • jevoux's avatar
    do you have any version of the mod for the version 19.1.0?
    by the way great mod!
  • downloadkct's avatar
    Lol, its not that hard to follow the "use 19.3 database and do not use any other custom database", but ok.
    Great mod anyways
  • davidczv's avatar
    Nothing is messed up. IDs must be different because database has converted from last year, so the persons have new IDs, and names of photos stay same as previous IDs. That problem with mixed facepack occurs if you don't follow instructions, so that is your mistake.[/url]
  • downloadkct's avatar
    Facepack are all messed up.
    Pelé have "1915389515" ID but on config.xml its writen to overwrite the picture of "1394634280", which is Rivelino, on your own facepack folder. And i have no other facepack installed.
    Adriano from Flamengo doesnt even show on config.xml lol

    arian.mozaffari :
    Thanks. I think that problem occurs if you select small or medium database when starting new game, or when you include some other editor files. Try again with large database. I usually set up top 5 european leagues as playable, with brazilian and argentinian, and it never happened before.
  • arian.mozaffari's avatar
    Hey David, nice work again, thanks a lot for the whole work. I just have a problem with some players nationality. I started in Premier League and saw players like Pele and Cruyff as free agents and with English nationality.
    I just had to congratulate Cruyff for playing his first game with England and it was a bit awkward.

    Any idea how to fix this? Your last versions never had the same problem.
  • davidczv's avatar
    There isn't any error if you follow instructions
  • JamieTheGee's avatar
    so many errors and it doesnt even work to begin with just crashes my fm
  • ozarslan's avatar
    something is wrong with players' faces. when i enter to bobby charlton's profile, someone else's photograph just stands in front of me..
  • MR11's avatar
    19.3.0 update and no other databases i did nothing wrong lol as i told you my first save was ok then i created another one and this happened
  • davidczv's avatar
    Because you didn't follow instructions and probably included some other editor file or you dont have latest update. People read previous comments, I cant answer on same questions hundred times. If you follow instructions everything must working just fine. End of story.
  • MR11's avatar
    why Johan Cruijff is from england? :P
  • icyway's avatar
