Cross-Sync

Simply tap ‘Cross-Save’ from the Start Screen. If you haven’t logged in already, a web popup will open to take you through the log in.

This will connect your App Store/Google Play account to your Steam account. Doing so will also enable Cross-Purchase. For more information on Cross-Purchase, see here:

The Cross-Sync panel lists all save games on your tablet and on the Steam Cloud you are logged into.

A date in the ‘Device’ column indicates the date and time the save was last modified on the tablet. A date in the ‘Cloud’ column indicates the date and time the save was last modified on the cloud. A hyphen indicates that the save does not exist there.

Open the ‘Cross-Sync’ panel from the Start Screen. Tap the file you want to upload, then tap ‘Upload’.

Once this has finished, start Football Manager Touch 2018 on your computer. If it was already running, quit and restart.

To load a save file, click ‘Load Game’ and then click the ‘Cloud’ button. Your save game from tablet should be listed here and can be loaded as normal.

For other files, you’ll need to load into a save file then proceed to the screen where the respective file would be used – e.g. the Tactics screen for tactic files – and there will be options there for loading files (on most screens it is a button with a cog icon on it). Once you select the load file option it functions in the same way as save files, where you click the ‘Cloud’ button to view files saved in the cloud.

For a save file, click the ‘FM’ button while in that save game, then ‘Save Game As’. On the popup that appears, click the ‘Cloud’ button and save your game. Afterwards, quit Football Manager and Steam will synchronise the save game with the Steam Cloud.

For saving non-save files, proceed to the screen where the respective file would be used – e.g. the Scouting Shortlist screen for shortlist files – and there will be options there for saving files (on most screens it is a button with a cog icon on it). Once you select the save option, it functions in the same way as saving the game – tap the ‘Cloud’ button to save files to the cloud. As with save files, you’ll then need to quit FMT and Steam will sync with the Steam Cloud.

Once this has done, go to the Football Manager Touch 2018 Start Screen on your tablet and tap ‘Cross-Sync’. The panel should now display the new file. Tap it, then tap ‘Download’ to download it to your tablet.

When the download has completed, tap ‘Close’ and then tap ‘Load Game’ to load a save file as normal.

To load a non-save file, load into a saved game then proceed to the screen where the respective file would be used – e.g. the Tactics screen for tactic files – and there will be options there for loading files (on most screens it is a button with a cog icon on it). Select the load file option and you should see the file you downloaded.

First, check on tablet that the file has a date listed on the Cross-Sync panel in the ‘Cloud’ column. If so, the file has successfully been uploaded to the cloud.

Next, quit FMT on your computer, wait a minute or so and then start it and try again. Ensure you click the ‘Cloud’ button on the Load Game panel.

First, check on tablet that the file is displayed in the cloud section of the Save File dialog on the computer. If so, the file has successfully been uploaded to the cloud.

Next, quit FMT on your computer, wait a minute or so for it to sync then check again on the tablet.

If that doesn’t work, trying logging out of Steam Cloud on the tablet and back in again.
