Sports Interactive have released a second hotfix for Football Manager 2018 to address a couple of stability and performance issues. In order to install the update, you will need to close Football Manager 2018 and re-launch the game to download and install the update. As always, the update is save game compatible, so you don’t have to start a new save to apply the hotfix.

For us at FMInside a good day, as the game has fixed the slowdown when using editor files. Now you can use the FMInside Data Update without any problems.
