What is this? - Author's statement
"The largely inadequate representation of continental African football is the most severe issue that has to be taken into consideration when intending to create a more realistic gameworld within FM. So, that was my main motivation to start an overhauling of the African Database for FM2009, that was resleased as the AFRICAN MEGA DATABASE.
I have now transfered this update to FM2010 by converting all my changes to a massive XML file which adds nearly 5000 African players to the Database! Compared to the FM2009 version I just excluded a few hundred Malian players which I will release in a seperate file which will also include the Malian league structure.
Apart from that, almost all black African countries are covered with massive updates. I will gradually update this file to add even more players from more countries in the future. Please, let me know what you think about my project."
List of heavily updated countries
Central African Rep
Dem. Rep. Congo
Mali (subject to an upcoming special update)
How to install:
* Place the .xml file to the folder My Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2010\editor data. In case you can't find this folder, it's within the folder that savegames get saved.
* When starting a new game, in the "Choose Database" box, hit "Change" at "Editor Data Files" and then OK. Select the file you placed to "user data" folder. Click "ÎŸÎš".
