    Well that's STRANGE

    Just loaded my database to have a look to see if i could find a fix for issue, but game has verified straightaway without having to do any changes

    yet can't see anywhere on forums about a hotfix for editor issues after the winter update, so looks like they may have done a fix for the editor again without telling people

    To clarify, there wasn't an additional update for the Editor following the Update 2 release last week. We've had a few sightings of this issue (with the 2 teams from 7 for the CWC failing verifications) but there's been no discernible cause we've found (or way to reproduce internally).

    On the off chance this was the cause, were both the game and Pre-Game Editor Update 2 patches downloaded when the error first appeared?

    So I paid for the In-Game Editor to fix the following data bug as Arsenal should only be covering Ozil's wages until 2021, not 2024. However, the In-Game Editor doesn't allow me to make that change? Is that right?

    Hi there, I'm afraid the IGE indeed doesn't allow for editing player sale clauses mid save.

  3. Not quite sure how this thread ended up in UI, I think it was accidentally merged - I thought it was weird it had suddenly gone missing from League Specific. Moving this bac now.

    Just to clarify on the issue regarding players being suspended indefinitely in the league due to suspensions from the league cup, this is an issue we have under review and are looking to get fixed soon (including for existing save games if possible) for FM21 soon.

    The SI Gibraltar file provided on the Steam Workshop does not work with the latest update. It's an unverified file and due to the existing Editor bugs cannot be manually verified by users with the latest update. Could do with someone at SI verifying it on the latest database and updating it (although an Editor fix wouldn't go amiss either ;)).


    Heya, cheers for pointing this out - I'll see about getting the file updated (or a new one uploaded for 21.3 database if needed).

    you can't even add them for one nation right now yet alone two, the game won't load ANY custom nation rules at all.

    Hi there, this isn't reproducing for me on the latest public build - to clarify is the Editor unable to do Rules > Add Nation Rules or is the issue after that point?

    I am on a MAC and the top row you mention (ID, age, club,  etc.) do not show up for me, so no place to right click...

    Any solution since SI apparently can't fix it ?:)

    Hi guys, if the right-click solution doesn't work could you upload your cache and preferences file to our cloud service please?

    (Instructions below on finding said files, but use the Editor 2021 folder instead of Football Manager 2021)


    The original fix should in theory have resolved the issue (or at least made the right-click workaround resolve the issue) so this might point to it being a separate root cause.

    Made it to the cup final with Lillestrøm in second tier. Unfortunately it's impossible to set up training between the season end and the cup final (17 days). Also, shouldn't the cup final be on a Sunday early afternoon and not a Wednesday evening, like in the game?

    Hi there, I've attempted to reproduce this internally but have been unable to do so (training appears to still be do-able in the fixture gap). Could you upload your save game to our cloud service for us to investigate please. Thanks

    In Scotland L2, after Brexit I have to suddenly register some players. I have a young squad, 100% locally born and bred so it should be straight forward? But the registration screen is telling me that I don't have the minimum required squad size. Do I now have to buy additional over 21 players just so I can register half my first team squad?

    You should be able to register the U21 players to progress, but you are correct that you shouldn't have to - I can log this one internally. Thanks for raising.

    Only clubs from Dominican Republic, Haiti, Jamaica, Trinidad and Puerto Rico seem to be able to qualify to the North American League in the FM2021. IRL, for a given year, one club from any Caribbean nations may qualify from times to times to the North American League. See Robinhood from Suriname in 2019 Concacaf League https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2019_CONCACAF_League


    Hi, this one is known and under review internally - thanks for raising.

    I knew there was a change but i thought they still tried to make it russian/ukranian games as 1 of the 2 if these teams are playing that day. 

    Actually this is something I happened to ponder recently but couldn't find anything in official uefa documentation stating that this is the case. I'm pretty sure you're right and they skew towards Ukrainian/Russian/Kazakh/etc. clubs getting the earlier kickoff but have been unable to find a source on it.

    Hello.  I found a bug in Portugal and it has happened on every save I went back and checked.  After one year the 3rd tier splits into 2 tiers and then the 4th becomes playable. That part works fine.  For some reason every team in Portugal Tiers 1-4 suddenly turn pro.  Even amature teams that drop from 3 to 4 turn pro.  I know its not in the league settings because the following year the teams that come up from tier 5 are semi pro usually.  Basically teams that have no buisness being pro are suddenly forced to and just start losing money fast.  Can you please take a look into this?  Thanks.   

    Hi, this is a known issue under review currently - thanks for raising.

    My editor crashes when I run Test Competitions. Constantly on the same date 16/10/21. I can't for the life of me figure out why. When I try and load the database in game, it works as if it's valid but constantly crashes November 29th 2020. It must be an easy fix in the database but can't find explanations as to why. Is there a service I can pay someone to figure this out?!?!?! Seriously!!!

    Hi, to clarify is this with a specific custom database file loaded or for all competition tests even with a default database?

    If the former, could you upload your edit file to our cloud service and we can investigate. If the latter, which divisions do you have active whilst testing competitions (or does it reproduce for any divisions being activated in said test)? Thanks

    Just tested this.

    I think Mike has nailed it with the staff attributes.

    Editor worked as normal (as Luke showed) with Eric Bailly, but not with Romero (who has staff attributes). 

    Thanks for your help



    confirmed this with other players who also have staff attributes now. 

    will just avoid them for the scenario I’m setting up.

    Cheers for the info here, I've logged this for review internally.

    Just wondering if anyone's seen this or knows why it happens. I'm managing in Ligue 1 in France (the year is 2025). In the January transfer window I offer a contract to a player on about January 29th.

    On February 2nd, I get an email saying it's the deadline to register players for the rest of the league season. Fair enough.

    But the transfer window shuts on February 3rd. This player I'm trying to buy hasn't seen the need to hurry up making his mind up before the registration deadline, because as we know it's the transfer deadline that causes contract negotiations to get sorted faster than the standard week or so for non-deadline deals.

    Sure enough on February 3rd he says "I'll come!" But by that point I'm a day too late to register him and he can't play until the summer.

    It's highlighted quite well in the attached image of the day's inbox. I mean, it feels like a bug, because if this is how it actually works in France it's completely arbitrary and must drive people mad.

    Any thoughts?

    Hi, this is due to an issue with the game code seemingly forcing the registration end date to change under the hood and be a day early (in this season it should be on the 3rd) - I'm afraid we haven't been able to find out the root cause behind that but it is currently under review.

    Trying to search for players in the pre-game editor and not getting any results when trying to search by an attribute (regardless which one: pace, flair, acceleration, etc.)

    Any reason this is happening? when trying to search by position/name/position I am getting results and only getting a problem when adding an attribute

    Hi, this is a known issue under review internally - I'm afraid there's no workaround I can recommend for now on this.

    For some reason, it seems that every other round in Champions League, it reverts back to the old substitute rules, with 7 on bench and 3 subs during match. Must be a bug?

    Indeed, there is a known issue under review currently where midway through stages the substitution rules can change for the European competitions.

    I believe that teams from UEFA aren't supposed to be in the same group at the Club World Championship?  Group C contains no teams from UEFA, Group G contains two (unfortunately for me).

    Also related (I think).  I went to change my registered players (since some are on international duty during the Club World Championship) and the button seems to be a testing dialog.  I'm not sure if I should be able to change registration at this point, but the button at least seems wrong.

    Hi, thanks for raising these issues - both of them are known issues under review currently. With regards to the latter issue this is indeed not meant to be able to change registration at this point.

    Just had the same issue as @Jeter7256. Slovan Bratislava and Spartak Trnava have swapped between Championship and Relegation Group.

    I have uploaded save games available from moment pictured above, and three games earlier, before the bug had occured:

    • Slovak First Division Championship Group Bug 01.fm
    • Slovak First Division Championship Group Bug 02.fm

    Hi there, I would just like to update that this a known issue we have under review internally currently - though we have as yet been unable to isolate the cause in code. Thank you for the uploading of the save games.
