The latest update for Football Manager enables a security feature in the MacOS operating system, called "SIP" (System Integration Protection) (https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT204899)

This system is designed to protect your system from malicious programs. Amongst these protections, are protections that declare that processes cannot access another process' memory.
MacAssistant RT is affected by this issue, as it accesses Football Manager's memory area in order to read its data.

The only workaround at this moment, is to disable SIP on your MacOS computer. SIP can be partially disabled, and more specifically, the "debug" protection needs to be disabled.

You can do this by following this process:
1. Click the Apple logo on the menu bar
2. Click Restart
3. Hold down Cmd+R until you see an Apple logo with a loading bar, to boot into recovery mode.
4. Select your user, and enter your password
5. When everything loads, click "Utilities" on the menu bar
6. Select "Terminal"
7. Enter the following command: "csrutil enable --without debug"
8. Press the Return or Enter key on your keyboard
9. Click the Apple logo and select "Restart"

Disabling this protection is done at your own risk, and we cannot be held liable for any issues that may arise from this. If you feel unsure about it, feel free to look up this specific setting on the internet and draw your own conclusions.

Unfortunately, this is now entirely out of our hands, and there is no other known or possible workaround at this moment. Please rest assured, that if something changes in the future, it will be in our highest priority to implement a safer workaround.
I think you mean "csrutil disable --without debug" but I would just go with "csrutil disable".
Is it possible to let the macAssistant read information from save game files and load the database as the old system did and then we don't need to worry about this disabling of SIP ?

No - I mean csrutil enable --without debug. This command will enable all protections except for debug, which is what needs to be disabled.

If you do csrutil disable this will completely disable all protections in the system, which of course will make MacAssistant RT work, but I don't recommend it.

This would be a massive rework for MacAssistant RT at this point, that wouldn't be ready for at least a year.
Surely a rework is the best option? As asking people to disable the SIP is very dangerous

You can revert by following the exact same process, but instead enter the command "csrutil enable"
when computer restart after holding Command + R, I get no page asking for login and PW and the opening page doesn't give acce to terminal via utilities. What do you recommend ?
just wondering, does the In-game Assistant still work or is that screwed too?

I didn't appreciate how much I use the MacAssistant to check players Cuurent & Potential Ability, really missing it now!!
