    Does this have Stockport County's new owner or would I need to wait for the official data released in March?
  • manager1983's avatar

  • Len's avatar
    @abdufradi10 - no, sorry. Its for FM20 only
    @manager1983 - we are aware of the Moyes flaw. Will be fixed in the next release.

    can i play with this database the fm 16?

    @JereFere You can go to Steam, go to Library, and under the drop-down box click tools. Go to FM2020 Editor, download. Open and load in the CA/PA changes file, go to Database Changes, and you can see the changes. Alternatively, if you only want to check changes for the club you are managing (i.e. Liverpool), go to Liverpool's page in Database and clubs, and click on a player (Salah), scroll down to Changes, and check the changes.

    @yury - our update doesnt affect graphical add-ons, so im not sure why these kits aren't showing in your game.
  • yury veiga's avatar
    @Len Brazil Kits. The kits in Brazil only work the 3rd shirt.
  • Len's avatar
    @yury veiga - Which kits do you mean exactly? You say you downloaded the kits? Which ones?
  • yury veiga's avatar
    This update corrected the colors in Brazil. But that removed the team shirts. Can this be fixed?

    I downloaded the team kits and after installing this update, they all disappeared. Only work without the update.
