Follow these simple steps to use a downloaded tactic in your game of FM 10.

Step 1

On the tactic download page click Download



Step 2

When you download your tactic from FM-Base Save the file.



Step 3

Save the file to...

Step 4

Open FM 2010 and browse to the tactics screen.



Step 5

From there click on Tactic > Manage Tactics




Step 6

Click on Import...



... and choose the tactic from the list.



Step 7

Now click on Tactic again and now choose the tactic you just imported.



Finished

There you go. You should now be all set up ready to select your players for your new tactic.

When I do this it says "The file could not be imported". I've tried ones that come in winrar ones that come in winzip and single tactics that end in .TAC but to no avail.
Does anybody have any ideas?

Read the guide! You do not need to open the .tac files!

I have the exact same problem as vMRMOJORISINv, and I follow the above screenshots exactly. I'm attaching my own to show what happens. I'm certainly not trying to double-click on the .TAC file from outside the game. Any help most appreciated.

I wasn't trying to open .tac files. I was downloading tactics that come in various formats ie. compressed with winrar/winzip etc. When I go to the import screen the tactics are there but you can't import them exactly like Coien's screenshots.
Is there some sort of setting that needs checking/unchecking for these to work?

Sean, the tactics are for 2010 and most of them are from this site.

Yeah, the tactic I was trying said it was to get Newcastle promoted from the Championship, so it's definitely new.

Why have you put it in Data>Tactics for?.. It's just goes in Football Manager 2010>Tactics. Nothing to do with Data.. I don't know how some people can't do this.
