Update 13.1.2 for Football Manager 2013
A quick announcement to say we’ve just released an update containing a number of fixes for Football Manager 2013. We want to thank everyone for their feedback so far, it has been very much appreciated and alongside the reports in the Bugs forum it’s really allowed us to make some of these improvements.

As with all updates it is save game compatible and you will be able to continue your save game. To update you will need to close the game down and re-launch for it to update. If this does not work for you or you feel it has not updated you will need to restart Steam.

Once updated the version number will be 13.1.2, more specifically the full version numbers are listed below:

PC: 330075
Mac: 330073

Just to emphasise, there are NO MATCH ENGINE CHANGES in this update. As some of you are aware PaulC and his team are hard at work on the match engine but more time is needed to both code and test all these changes.

Likewise there are no database changes, if you start a new game the database number will remain 13.0.0.

A changelist is included below.

If you’ve posted an issue on the bugs forum which has not been fixed in this changelist, do bear in mind we’ve only put in the most important fixes which we have been able to test enough to be sure they will not cause issues elsewhere. Just because an issue has not been included in this update does not mean it has been ignored.

We hope you continue to enjoy playing Football Manager 2013 with this update. Thanks.
