Thanks for the heads-up
It will take as long as it takes, better to get it working as you want rather than rushing it

Hi Footygamer,

Yes it will be nice to update nationality because some players don't have their second nationality in the game and I didn't see the possibility to update this data in the template

@Footygamer When are we expecting the FM21 data update to go live? Looking forward to it 🙂

Is this compatible with FM20 because I have found with the FM20 DU, there are so many things incorrect. FE, Pep is set as Assistant Manager, Juventus have no manager, among many other errors.

It’s not overly clear that the FM21 update is now live in the main data update thread..

There were a few teething problems particularly with old changes being included in the first pack and FM21 changes being improperly linked to FM20.

It should now be clearer
- The Data Update only contains 43 changes specifically made to the FM21 Update
- Player threads only contain comments and submissions related to FM21

If anything is not clear or appears not to be working please feel free to give any feedback and i'm sure I can improve things.

Hi guys, when I download the Download Latest Football Manager Data Update file, an .xml file appears. With this file do I have to start a new game or do I need more files to be able to use the database of this site? I do not understand well. Thank you.

I have seen that there are more .xml files in the FM20 database than in the FM21 database. Please help.

Hi @Footygamer, I have tried to start a new file with the data update and I have this message saying it requires verifying before using. Not had this before when downloading latest Data Updates? Will I need to do this in the editor every time I download a new update? Thanks

The data update page tells you when the file was last updated and for which version the latest update is for

NB It is for FM21 NOW

Older versions click as shown in image(NB older versions are not being updated the last updated stable version is shown)

There is an issue currently with only the download link for the last FM20 update working

when you try to use a file created using an earlier version of the DB it sometimes has to be just opened in the editor and saved then its good to go

you will get an warning message saying something like- this was created on an older version etc ignore this that is normal

also the new editor/game SI have released it has been very buggy and it sometimes doesnt like xml files

but files like this dont need verification in fact they cant be verified in the editor as they are not changes to league structures/ rule changes.

try loading it in the editor and using save as then you will get a fmf file this will load in game

NB it is a XML file so you need to use import to load it

Hi, Will we have to do this every time we download the update? Never had to do this on any other platforms in the previous years using this update?
