First a timeline for how this FM exploit / glitch / bug (pick any word) came to us:

  • We were contacted by as user on Scout who had found this.
  • The same user has posted this on SI bugs forum, where the thread was locked and hidden.
  • We were asked to do a video, but considered it no point as SI have said no more fixes not matter what.
  • We chose to instead make a thread as we still believe in transparency.



This bug essentially uses the DoF to trick the wage budget, so that you can sign any player on incredibly low wages. The transfer fee will stay the same, but if done right you can get any interested player on a ridiculously low contract.

What to do:

  1. Set your wage budget to minimum.
  2. Make a bid in the normal way that get's accepted.
  3. When moving to contracts, ask the DoF to do the contract negotiations.
  4. He will offer a contract based on what is left in the wage budget, so the less left the less he will offer. Normally the player will not accept this, and the deal will be cancelled. But..
  5. Then go to the player who is considering the contract, click change contract offer, and suddenly he is interested in the low amount. It seems the "roof" of the wage budget has become the new maximum he wants. Just offer him what he wants, he accepts.

You could just... Not use it? It's a single player game, don't like it, don't use it. If you don't have enough spine to resist that urge... Well, that's kind of your own problem.
i agree with gfxjg don't be spineless and think only your opinions matter. if you don't like it don't use it. tell me any single player game where people don't cheat. it's the wish of the people who buy the game as they pay their money to buy the game to enjoy playing with it and it's not like you are the only one who plays the game. it's your problem if you want to use it or not, just don't use it,it's simple and don't waste other people's time just for your selfish wish to create a program just because you can't resist the urge or just create your program yourself nobody cares
let me see if I can explain ...
Is adding a coach available in the game ? Yes
Has the editor been available in the game ? yes either online or official
was there a programming error in the game? yes, but never with this dimension.
but you can choose not TO USE reuben, but you KNOW HE IS THERE The error ...
ITS DENAIL...

You're right, SI should really care more about the game, and fix their bugs. Everyone agrees on that. But does it really bother you SO much that people should spend time and effort on creating a program to disable it, when you can really just... Ignore it?

Also, this is far from the biggest bug ever. You clearly didn't see the one where you can sell any player for whatever sum of money you want, which, surprise, is also still active in the game. SI just don't care.
