Thats how you IMPORT them into your game and save. Next , you have to pick it as one Of your 3 Tactics.

I am struggling to install tactics on my mac, i had no problems when on pc.
When i download the tactic, it comes up as a rar file, with any other rar file on my mac i just have to double click it and the mac sorts it out but for some reasons with any of the tactics it doesnt work and just trys to open via vlc media player, anyone got a clue whats going on?

Bit of an odd one here and only since around the new year. I have working copies of both Winrar and Winzip installed on my computer yet when i try to open downloaded tactics (Happened today with Raikans DM one), i'm getting a message asking me what program i want to open the file with. In my experience, this message tends to be when you don't have the correct software.

There's an option on the message to choose a program to open it with but neither the Winrar or Winzip are in the list. Very confused. Does anyone know whats happening here?

My guess would be you are trying to open the TAC file, which doesn't need unzipping, just put it straight in your tactics folder?

Really sorry, being a dufus, probably cause I've just got in from work, but have downloaded a tactic, imported it, now when I try and "Add Tactic" it doesn't appear in either formations or archived tactics. What am I doing wrong? Thanks

1) Make sure the tactic is unzipped.

2) Make sure you move the unzipped tactic (it will have a .tac extension) into the correct folder (Documents/SI/FM2013/Tactics). Note that you may have two "SI" folders - make sure you are using the correct one - it will contain other folders within SI/FM2013 such as games, matches, sounds, graphics etc. If you are using the one that only has SI/FM2013/sounds in it, it's the wrong one.

3) Do you play FM Classic or the full game? Not all tactics here will work with FM Classic.

4) When you go to "Add tactic", click "use an existing tactic" then click on the little arrow underneath, then select "archived tactics" and you should get a list appear containing your downloaded tactics.

Good luck :)

Hey - i'm just starting with FM13, have been playing this silly game since CM3 or something.... anyhoo, when ever i go to download a tactic to try from the forums it defaults to FM10 (which i have never had on this machine) which means that i cannot download any direct links hosted here. do any of you guys know of a way around this? i have been through the forums and got no love. i'm sure i cant be the only one with this issue. I am playing on a mac osx 10.6.8. any help greatly appreciated.

Hi,

Can we use classic tactics in the normal (Career mode)? There are so many good tactics here but they are all classic

Classic tactics just refers to the old style of tactics used in previous versions of FM, not Classic Mode, so they work in the normal career version, but they just look a little different, and you can't set/change player roles.
