Where do I place files/mods I have downloaded-read this for full details¬†PC+Mac users click on quote belowūüĎá



PC users- As always Download a file and paste them into -Documents \Sports Interactive \Football Manager 2024 \editor data folder if there isnt an editor data folder create one[using lower case do not use caps ]

If the file is compressed eg a zip/ rar file you may need to use software to uncompress the file eg winrar


Mac Users


This is from SI


Whether you have created the files yourself or downloaded them they need to be placed in the following locations for them to be loaded into the game.


Mac-Due to a change on Mac OSX with Catalina regarding permissions, Sports Interactive made a substantial change to how Mac FM documents are stored.

Previously the files would automatically be generated in the Documents folder here:
Users/YOUR Mac USERNAME/Documents/Sports Interactive


Now the files will instead appear in the following location:

Mac - Users/YOUR Mac USERNAME/Library/Application Support/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2023 > editor data


By default this folder is hidden, so to access you need to do as follows:

Open Finder
Click ‚ÄėGo‚Äô from the menu bar
Press and hold down the ‚ÄėOption‚Äô (Alt) key
This will bring up the ‚ÄėLibrary‚Äô, click to enter then go to ‚ÄėApplication Support‚Äô -> ‚ÄėSports Interactive‚Äô -> ‚ÄėFootball Manager 2023‚Äô


If you get issues after following these instructions you need to ask for help on the official SI website here


Starting a new game

Open the game and start a new career


Select Database

There is a drop down menu all the files in your edited data folder now display[if files do not show here you have placed them in the wrong folder]

after selecting  the data base you want[ currently there are 3 options The Default DB-23.0/The 23.3.0 Update/ or the 23.4.0 Update]


now  select the edited file/s you want to load to start a new save game with, tick the ones you want to use[ NB you can only use one custom start date file, and IMO you should only have one version of the custom start date file in your editor data folder]

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

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 ‚ÄėCache‚Äô 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.


Verify game

 Find the game version FM xxxx  right click 

click on properties


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
