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)
Also if the file is not your work you have to state who originally created it and that you have their permission to upload it on their behalf you need to tag them into the thread if they are a member here or give a link to where the author can be contacted.
If you have used another persons file and edited it/adapted it the same criteria applies- it will not be tolerated if a user is found passing other people's work off as theirs own, and they will be dealt with by staff accordingly.
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-Forums have a brief description at the top, most are obviously self explanatory.
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 when posting an image just copy and paste it directly into your post, post the image not the link to download it, do not expect others to have to download something to assist you, when it should be displayed here, its easy to do so please follow this.
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 images directly to a thread there is no need to use links or to expect others to download an image just to see it to assist you , 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. Once you have posted DO NOT post duplicate/similar posts/threads on the same issue/question or post in threads not related to your issue, as they will be considered spamming the forums.
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 particularly includes by PM too, ask questions on the forums.
There is a reason why this message/prompt👇 has been added before you send a PM.Users who ignore this will receive warnings at the discretion of staff.
I have started a request thread so you can post requests/suggestions there https://sortitoutsi.net/content/58970/editor-data-requests-thread
General posting etiquette
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
Also post the FULL content of your editor data folder -[mainly because there are so many times users are stating they have issues but its just caused by them trying to run obviously conflicting files ]
please post the image/s into your post directly, I for one am not risking downloading an image to my system when it is simple to post the image directly into your post as explained above- copy image + paste
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
Make sure firstly this filter is not set to active fields only, as that will mean not all fields will be displayed
Then 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
I have also found that some options are not displaying correctly in windowed mode so try using the editor in full screen mode and adjust the size of the text etc to see if this helps
If these tips do not work you have a bug and need to report to SI
Tips to help resolve crashes in game
Sometimes I have found issues with the game game crashing trying to move it forward especially after leaving a game is down to the skin so try using the default one if the issues goes contact the creator of the skin so they are aware of the bug.
Also try doing this clearing the cache and verify the game
Clearing the cahe-
Same as the editor tip above but in the relevant game folder instead
Navigate to C:\Users\Your Username\AppData\Local\Sports Interactive\Football Manager xxxx- Delete the ‘Cache’ folder
NB you will lose your game set up preferences when you do this
When launching the game for the first time after completing this, you may notice the game takes a little extra time to load up (especially if you’re using custom files). This is where the game is re-caching the files in game and will only take place the first time you click on screens. From that point on, the game will be cached and should run at optimal speed.
Find the game version FM xxxx right click
select local files and click verify integrity of game files
This will replace any missing/damaged files but be aware it will possibly over write real name fixes too
