SI have released an update to FM 20

Recommended Posts

Leaving this thread up for a few weeks as the updates will be regular now from SI even after the full game comes out😉


 So when SI release an update AGAIN to the  game then The current version of FMRTE will be incompatible for those who did not follow the tips as outlined on the site in the forum rules I will outline again below.


Steam (top left) > Go Offline > Restart in Offline Mode


 Besides the above method to stop FM from updating, there is another method that you can do.  Backup the following folder (x = yearly release i.e. 2016, 2017, etc) to another location, however make sure you have enough disk space as this file can be large.


C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Football Manager x

To revert back to the previous version, just copy and paste this folder back into the location that you copied it from, overwriting the current folder.  This method has worked in previous FM versions, however this may change in the future as either Steam or SI can change the way the game is installed to prevent this method from happening.


All users who participate in the SI beta testing option after the full game release will not be able to use FMRTE on their saves as the public/Dev team here do not have access to these builds.  This option is used to test fixes for SI for future releases and may never be released to the public. Support is not given for these builds.


The Dev team WILL BE  aware and working on an update and information will be posted here in due course.


In the meantime keep any posts about it in this thread and within the rules do not post in the main FMRTE 20 thread


NB The time taken answering posts asking things like when is the patch coming out etc delays the actual release of the update.


There are to be NO NEW THREADS/POSTS asking where is FMRTE? how long until FMRTE is released? or similar posts, otherwise you will be given a posting ban. keep all posts about the release in here

Once you get that update queued its too late if you go offline then, because as soon as  you launch the game it will automatically self update. 


You need to get in offline mode before any queued updates then your fine.


The game cant update and then you can safely go back online once you have a patched FMRTE and safely download the latest version of the game, and then as soon as your game is patched  set steam offline again.
