Hello, 

 

I have been having trouble finding the exact location on macbook of where to download data updates to. The process I have gone through has been: Download and Extract to zip file (via Unarchiver), then application support, sports interactive, Football Manager 2022, Editor Data. I still have been unable to translate any downloads to FM following this procedure. I have tried this over the course of FM 22 with skins, logos, kits etc but this is yet to work - although I am not too fussed about those additions, the biggest one I'm hoping to actually get working is data update so I don't have old transfers.

 

Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated. 

 

(If anyone can help but requires screenshots, I'd be happy to send them.)

 

Thanks

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’
