Afternoon chaps,

After 15years of PC windows based Football manager, I recently bought a macbook laptop - immediately followed by a new copy of FM2011 on the new Mac format, via an online download purchase from Steam.

Wanting the new transfers, features etc. I soon after downloaded the 11.3 patch from (official website) only to then realise the game would no longer run as i would be prompted for the disc to be inserted upon the home screen. (which i dont possess having downloaded the game digitally).

Long story short - ive clearly messed up and downloaded the wrong patch. Does anyone know which patch I should now run to fix this? Or should i just re install the game and try the 'Mac esellerate' patch instead?

Thanks very much

I would recommend to re install and try mac patch.
Just to clarify, it was the mac patch - the top mac option 'Download Patch 11.3 (Mac Disc)' - seems this may be the patch to install when you have the cd present? anyone know the best option for digital download?

This is what i've read from football manager's website regarding the new 11.3 patch:
"Steam purchasers or any boxed copy users who have registered their game through Steam DO NOT need to apply this patch as you will automatically be updated to the most up-to-date version of Football Manager 2011."

You should reinstall your game and wait to automatically update or try to manually update it.I'm no steam user so i don't know exactly step by step what you need to do but you should try this.Good luck!
The version you purchased from STEAM should have been the most up-to-date version but if it wasn't it's just a matter of opening the STEAM console and highlighting FM2011. An option should come up to check for updates.

'Download Patch 11.3 (Mac Disc)' only works if you bought a physical copy of the game on disc. If you buy it on STEAM all updates need to be done through STEAM.
