I have downloaded a number of data updates (new leagues, transfer updates etc) which are in .fmf format. I have put these in the following directory

users/(My username)/My Documents/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2015/Editor Data

But they are not showing when I start a new game?! I have the latest update v15.3.2

Fmf files WILL NOT WORK if they are in a sub-folder within the main editor data folder. They need to be in the main editor data folder.

If that is the case in your system, can we have a screenshot of your editor data folder so we can perhaps see what's wrong with it?

Files need to be directly in the editor data folder, not in a sub-folder. Take them out of the real fixtures folder and see if they show when starting a new save.

Hi, I've downloaded a database which downloads a .zip file. I then extract it and press the editor data subfolder and drag all the .fmf files into the sports interactive editor data so it's not in a sub folder. But when I load up fm22, it won't show up in editor data. Please could you help me.

Post screenshots of where you installed them please.

 

What files are these? Can you not ask the file creator?

I moved the files from the WSL FM22 file to my editor data but it won't come up on my fm22. I have also contacted the creator but they are yet to reply. If you know how to fix this, please help.

Maybe the below helps, but if not, I don't see why we have to do the job of creators of files which are not even hosted on our site! 

 

From FM20 onwards, there's been a substantial change to how Mac FM documents are stored. Previously the files would automatically go in the Documents folder here:

Users/YOUR Mac USERNAME/Documents/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 202x

Now the files will instead appear in the following location:

Users/YOUR Mac USERNAME/Library/Application Support/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 202x

By default this folder is hidden, so to access you need to do as follows:

Open Finder
Click ‘Go’ from the menubar
Press and hold down the ‘Option’ (Alt) key
This will bring up the ‘Library’, click to enter then go to ‘Application Support’ -> ‘Sports Interactive’ -> ‘Football Manager 202x’

Thank you so much, that worked! I didn't realise this website was just for databases that you host but thanks a lot for helping.

I'm having this same problem - have attached a screenshot of where the files are installed.  I noticed though that the game in Steam is pointing to local files under a Steam folder…is this part of the problem?

Have been trying lots of things today…for some reason, whenever I load the game and try to create a new one…it shows no files….then when I quit, I have another ‘editor data’ folder underneath the existing ‘editor data’ folder?  This just has a config file, but nothing else in it
