This thread of Seans is from FM10 but as the procedure is the same in this years edition...


Follow these simple steps to use a downloaded tactic in your game of FM 11

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...

My Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2010\tactics



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.




FAQ:

Q - I have downloaded a tactic, a set of tactics and when I put them in the tactics folder, just like in the thread, I can find them when loading up the save

A - Check that the file has the .tac extension. Some users, especially when uploading sets of tactics, have used winrar or winzip to compress the file. Thes files needs to be unrared(unzipped). If you don't have winrar/winzip, buy or download an evaluation copy and install it on the computer. Then right clock the file you want to unrar/zip and select unrar/unzip. Move the files from the new created library as in the thread.

another way is by downloading it, click on the arrow next to the tactic in the downloaded bit, click show in folder, copy the file into the tactics file :)

Are you trying to upload it in the "Download section", then the file has to be approved( might take a day)

Some tactics i download appear not to be a 'TAC File' but a 'Shortcut'? How do i get these to work?

Forget that question! Just had a mess and figured it out.

I right-clicked the shortcut, clicked properties and then opened file location.

Mine says it cannot open the file, and that I must look for the program to open it with. Any Ideas?
o_O

what is the filename and extension?

an archive would be <filename>.zip <filename>.rar <filename>.7z or similar

a tactic file would be <filename>.tac and this is what FM uses (you would import it by going to "tactic>manage tactics" on your team's tactics page and selecting "import")

if it's an archive, then you need to get the appropriate program to extract it (or just get 7zip as it will handle them all and it's free.. Google it ;) )

Are you sure that the tactics have been placed in

My Doc/ Sports In./ Fm11/ Tactics ?

If so, do they have the extension .tac?
If so, have you left the tacticsscreen ( ex click your team and go their again) and re-entered, clicked the archieved option in the drop meny ?

If so,then I dont know
