On behalf of everyone at Sports Interactive I’m proud to announce the release of the Winter Transfer Data Update, 14.3.0.
When starting a new game you will now be given an option to start with one of two databases, the default database (14.0) or the Winter Update (14.3). Included are all the latest transfers and updated squads, so for example, if you want to see if you can best Moyes with Mata at Manchester United, now is your chance! The data is compatible with new saves only on both full Football Manager and Football Manager Classic.
Also included within the update are a number of other changes and fixes to the game and the match engine which are save game compatible. So if you're in no rush to use the latest data you're fine to continue on with your current save. A link to a changelist showing the majority of these changes is listed below.
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.
Upon launching the game you will see the updated version number of 14.3 in the bottom right hand corner of the Start Screen.
If your version still hasn’t updated we suggest again restarting Steam and if that still doesn’t work, try verifying your game cache as explained here in our FAQ - http://www.footballmanager.com/faq/?game=38&id=221
Please remember as with all data updates, short-term loans are not included, and some late transfers/managerial changes or those conducted after February 1st 2014 may not be included.
The changelist includes but is not limited to the changes found here - http://community.sigames.com/showthread.php/386142-Football-Manager-2014-Update-14.3.0-Winter-Transfer-Update-RELEASED?p=9462928&viewfull=1#post9462928
