How to put Downloaded Tactics into the game

Important: When playing the game in the new "classic mode", you can only use tactics made with the Tactic Creator. Also notice that you no longer use "training" the way one did in FM12 so here, there is nothing to download



Step 1


Download the tactic


Step 2

Make sure that the file has the extension “.tac “
If its has .rar or .zip, it means that it’s a compressed file and then you need to use WinR or WinZip


Step 3


Put the file with the extension .tact in here

User / My Documents / Sports Interactive / Football Manager 2013 / Tactics


If the folder does not exist then just create it your self


Step 4

Go into the Tactics screen. Click the options, then manage Tactics




CLICK IMPORT

Make sure that you chose the correct folder, in this case the tactics folder. Pick a Tactic and then click Select





Step 5


Now, you have imported the tactic into your save and not only into the game and can pick it as either a starting tactic or a backuptactic.



Step 6

Have some Cheese and if being as I am, an adult, some really good wine. Put your feet up and enjoy the best game so far in the FM series.

Wonder why they got rid of the ability to share normal tactics? For me it was a huge part of playing the game
You still can, just classic mode is a much simpler and faster way to play the game as compared to the normal mode. So it just sticks with the tactics creator because it basically walks you through everything in about 10 seconds and requires no real work to get what you want from it.

Also TBH you spelt Adult wrong in step 6.

Then I have no idea. Is this happening to all files ? And you have not altered the extension your self without unpacking à rarfile ?

How do you create a destination yourself? Downloaded tactics and used winrar to unzip them but when I try to export files there is no tactics folder. Should one be created whenever you create and save a tactic in game?
