Now I now that transferring games from PC to PC is possible as I've done it several times via my Maxtor (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maxtor), and after re-installing FM, I can just choose my game from my docs. However, soon, I'm getting an Apple MacBook.

Now my game looks like this:

Notice, it says 'Games for Windows' at the top but underneath, it says 'Mac' and 'Universal'. So does this mean, that my current Windows compatible save can be transferred to my Apple and I can continue my Career as normal, or is this not correct?

Obviously, I'd need to download the mac patch, but otherwise...

i use a mac mate, i think it should be possible, never tried it but i cant see why not as long as the game definitely says "Mac" & "Universal"

Ok, thanks mate.

Does anyone know for sure, because I'm not sure if my game will still be ok if it hasn't got the right patch on it?

Yes, it's definitely possible, I did it when I got my MacBook Pro.

It'll be fine, the save file is in the same format on both systems, so all you have to do is patch up to 9.0.3 on your new system and it'll load normally.
