So, I was trying to test some tactics and I downloaded a few which were in the file format .tac and when I tried to import it into my game, it simply didn't show up, neither in the directory SI/FM2015/tactics or in any other folder.
I'd like to know if any of you knows about this issue.
They changed the extensions for some reason. I can't import my old views neither. Somehow my filters do still work.
New extension view = .fmf
Old extension view = .fmview
Does somebody know how to fix this?

Change them to .fmf
doesn't work, unfortunately not that easy, thanks though
I cant do this either. Ive downloaded the tactic into the tactic folder, but it isnt showing under "Archived"..
Same thing happening to me. Anyone know a fix?
You don't import .tac files, you just move them to the tactics folder and they would appear under the "Archived Tactics" option on formation screen.
However, after the 15.3.0 update, .tac files no longer work. If the .tac file was from a previous version (before 15.3) the game isn't going to recognize it.
SI wants to eliminate .tac files (as well as slf, pft, dbc and tsh) and keep only the .fmf one. With FM15 it has been a transition year, which is why we've had the option to use both .tac and .fmf. But that was confusing to a lot of people. So after the update to 15.3, .tac files won't work unless they're somehow created after the 15.3 update.
If your .tac file is not showing, then there's nothing you can do. Unless you have that .tac file loaded on your formation screen in a previous save. If so, re-load that save, go to the formation screen and re-save the tactic (will be done as a .fmf file).
If you are not able to do that, then go back to where you got the tactic and find the information to recreate the tactic yourself.
So no downloading Bashy's Tiki-Taka tactic then
@dksauron: I've just messaged him and asked to create a .fmf version of his tactic to update the download link. Did the same with Sacuri's Spearhead. Both have updated their download pages with equivalent .fmf files. Will do the same for every other .tac file we have, hoping the authors will respond as fast.
