Submitting a file/mod for Download

 

When you have a File/Mod to share please when starting a new thread use the DOWNLOAD option to start the new thread. Please add as much information as possible and use screenshots etc to show what the file/mod is about[feedback from users is they are skeptical to download anything without information to do on and I agree with this]

 

 

 

Thanks for using the site to host your work it is appreciated but please note to use the site YOU MUST upload the file/s directly here it shouldnt be just a link to another site in order to download the file/s, so it should look like this when the Thread is saved- with the Download direct from here

 

I would also suggest putting a brief description of where the file/mod needs to be placed (use the details above if you wish)

 

General Posts

 

When you have an issue or just seeking some advice, and want input from staff/users on the forum please give enough information when initially posting so you can receive the help/feedback that is appropriate and to make sure your thread is posted in the correct forum.To do this when starting a new thread now select Discussion-



Please post in English I know it is not everyone's natural language so you translate if you need to.

The information should include the version of the game/editor you are using(ideally in the title) and it is required for you to clarify in the post the EXACT version eg Football Manager 2019 - 19.3.3 (1202861) and if you are a Beta tester for SI[AS YOU WILL BE USING A VERSION WE DO NOT HAVE] also if using Windows/Mac and any other platforms xbox etc.

Please use the search function here too first as there are many occasions where users are creating threads with no need when the same issue/question has been already raised and answered. If you create unnecessary threads they will be closed deleted at the discretion of staff.

Use screenshots to assist with your question/issue. I use Gyazo- it is free easy and quick to use, and if you have a few points don't post as one big paragraph break it up so it's easy to read.You can now post directly to a thread there is no need to use links or to expect others to download an image, just right click copy image and paste it directly in your post.

 

If you are having issues with a file not working you need to list all other files you are using too[screenshot of editor data folder would be better and quicker]


(when using third party content be careful as some do not tell you all the changes in their files and they can cause conflicts if you are running another file with similar changes, best option open any third party file in the editor and physically check what changes have been made

eg I have used files that are supposedly just for 'missing wonderkids' on opening the file the creator had also made changes to teams and other club/european changes that would have caused conflicts with my other files later in game)

 NB sometimes you get duplicate players in game because of this as 'missing' players may have been added to various files and so the game will just give the player concerned a different random unique ID.

After you have received some feedback especially if it is advice can you report back on the thread if that worked for you not just out of courtesy but for future reference for us/other users.


When a thread is closed if users have further comments to add to the thread just PM a mod/staff member and we can reopen it at any time if it is required.

 

Requests and posting etiquette.

Please note staff here are involved in various projects that take up our time along with moderating the forums and assisting with the live update/graphics etc so you may have to wait for an answer.

Can there be a bit of etiquette too on the forums when users are making a request etc it is not much to ask to use a bit of manners- a please/thank you goes a long way.

 

 Remember the person you are asking a question or making a request to  is helping you so its not much to ask to be polite most users are really good but some are being rude/entitled/demanding and this needs to stop.

 

Also anyone who is seen hassling/pressurizing  another user to do something for them or making someone feel guilty because they wont take on other projects and or being rude because it isnt done instantly will have their posts removed and or receive a warning at the discretion of staff .

 

So to be clear-There are to be no undue demands on individuals who have already put a lot of time and effort into creating files/updates to share with the community this includes by PM too.

If you have an issue with editing also state which version of the Database you are using and what format your file is in xml/fmf

General posting etiquette 

Also state what editing has been done normal/advanced rule editing and what the file is

 

 eg a Continental Super League for so called ‘elite’ clubs- Teams removed/banned from UEFA comps now  taking part in fixed league structure with no promotion/relegation on an annual basis - in Beta testing 

 

European Super League-😉

Issues with editor not working correctly

 

If you are getting issues with the editor eg some users have missing tabs /search options etc

 

First Try uninstalling the editor and then re- install

 

If issues persist  try clearing cache here- AppData -local……C:\Users\YOURUSERNAMEHERE\AppData\Local\Sports Interactive

copy the file -editor 2021(or whatever version you are using) and save to your desktop etc so if you wish you have a back up of the original folder

 

it contains these files it basically means you would have to set up your preferences again you wont lose any edited files you have in the editor data folder

If those tips above do not work  try this -

 

go to steam library select games and tools

 

Find FM 21 Editor right click 

click on properties

 

select local files and click verify integrity of tool files

 

 

If this doesnt work you have a bug and need to report to SI
