How to add TheFMEditor Updates in FM18

  1. Move the downloaded .fmf file to:
    \Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2018\editor data\
  2. Create folder "editor data" if it doesn't exist already.
  3. Run Football Manager 2018 and start new save with this database enabled.

  4. If you want to play in the English lower leagues, it's highly recommended to disable "Do not Add Key Staff" and enable "Add Players to Playable Teams" in advanced options. And also load all players from England using the Advanced... Database Size options.

    ivanauskas - I am having the same issue as him... it makes the Ireland league unplayable... also @TheFMEditor I really appreciate the update bro it is really good
  • ivanauskas's avatar
    Looks like after the recent update Ireland is now missing from the list of leagues when you start a new game.

    Hidayat - The Premier league does have history! What are you on about?
  • Hidayat's avatar
    why primer league doesnt have history ??
  • TheFMEditor's avatar
    Right sorry if this comes across bad but please could anyone using my database actually look before they comment please. This isn't the first time someone has said a player is missing then i check and its been correct. Thank you

    Tamiflu - Gelson Martins is on loan at Rio Ave! Are you sure you're using the right update?
  • Tamiflu's avatar
    Gelson Martins on loan to Rio Ave? lol Gelson Marting is one of the keyplayers to Sporting CP. Please take a further look into transfers, loans etc..
    And Goretzka is on Bayern.. and some more.

    The rest great work, i know it's a difficult task, but those i said are some huge mistakes. But Thanks for the update.

    Great, thanks for the reply.

    Any idea of which settings I should change? I disabled "Do not Add Key Staff" and enabled "Add Players to Playable Teams" but with no luck. In one-player mode the game works perfectly but as soon as another player tries to pick a team the game freezes.

    Malawian Boi - Are you serious? So i'm not entitled to my opinion but he is? Right ok.....For him to say it's 'very very poor' is a stupid comment. I have a lot of people who message me saying if i have missed a transfer but never have negative comments from them so please understand their is a way about telling me i have missed something. Hittmer has only just joined and his first post/comment is on this post so i'm not taken it serious after this post. I have a big following on social media who would probably say the same as me towards him. But anyway i'm moving on from this. Cheers for your response.

    TheFMEEditor your response are really immature answerthe questions posed with no spite mate because the tone of your response is just asking for more attacks shut people up by your maturity, integrity, calm demeanor and wit. HittmerOtzfeld is entitled to an opinion he obviously think the update is faulty and explains it badly by giving one example of you missing Goretzka...instead of insulting him you shouldhave enquired. I know this job is tiresome and depressing but pride and integrity in our work should keep you going , always seek to improve and take all criticism as a positive thing and take it all whether helpful or not.

    metal66 - Sadly not not updated databases work on touch.

    MEastgate - What teams need updating? I work on non league transfers a lot.

    worswick - Yeah might be setting because a database won't make online games freeze.

    HittmerOtzfeld - One person missed that is a mistake. 14k downloads just on this site and you're the only person to think its 'very very poor?' Think before you make stupid comments. As i always say if i miss something let me know it will be sorted straight away not stupid comments from idiots. Thank you
  • HittmerOtzfeld's avatar
    How you could have missed Goretzka to Bayern is beyond me. Very very poor.
  • worswick's avatar
    Great update, but only seems to work in single player.

    Spent a few hours yesterday with an online game but whenever my mate tries to join the game just freezes. Do I need to fiddle with the settings or is it simply not designed to function as an online multi-player game?
  • MEastgate's avatar
    Any ideas when the next update for the lower/non-leagues are?! Really want to start a national league FM, but waiting on updates so squads are confirmed.
  • metal66's avatar
    does this work for fm touch ?
  • TheFMEditor's avatar

    Works perfectly!! You're the only one who is having trouble with it. Don't just say it doesn't work give me more info!!
  • nihat1702's avatar

  • Nixz's avatar
    okey i have contacted SI and they told me to upload my save fil to their servers so they could take a look at it. that is now done, so just waiting for them to reply.
  • TheFMEditor's avatar
    vignjoslav - It won't be the database because i can't edit that. It will be the game.
    nick69 - That will be the game not my database. crashes won't be caused of the database.
    Nixz - Not sure, I've never seen that problem before. Maybe contact SI
  • Nixz's avatar
    so i have a problem with the youth intkae in the lower leagues, for some reason it sais that my youth players tuhat i have signed, still need scouting to see there squat role, i have signed some on youngster contracts, but since they need scouting for the game to be able to know that they have a youngster contract, i cant tutor them, and the game sais that this kid has a first team role and therefore cant be tutored, even though i know he doesnt. i have tryed releasing and resigning the players to see if that would fix it but no.
  • nick69's avatar
    hi im trying to join a lower league team but in the interview it crashes and this is from your last update
  • vignjoslav's avatar
    I have a problem with signing new contracts at lower leagues. In first season i could sign part time contract, but later i have only non contract option. Probably there is some problem with database u made.
