FM2012 Editor - how to use the editor files
An example can be found here on YouTube which shows how to add your own leagues and save to a database. The video is for FM10 but it still applies.
Even better, you can follow Nick's quite superb step-by-step instructions here.
You can follow the instructions below on how to utilise all the additional leagues together into a database, i.e. download the new leagues for all of Asia, Egypt, etc and have them all on the one database rather than loading separate games
Instructions on how to use the .xml editor amendments
You should download these files into the following path:
C:\Users\username\Documents\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2012\editor data
This should be a pre-existing folder but, if not, create one.
Once the appropriate files are in this folder you will be able to add them to any new games you start. You will not be able to amend any existing games to include additional nations / leagues
When you click new game the default database will not automatically load. Instead you will get a screen like this:
To add the additional leagues, changed leagues or any other amendments you may have made / downloaded, tick the 'change' box in the bottom right hand corner. Then click ok.
The next screen you see will allow you to pick and choose which .xml files, or database modifications, you wish to load on this occasion and will look something like this:
Hit confirm and, as you can see from the next screenshot, the amended / created leagues will be available to play and you can progress as normal:
Should do the job but you might also want to consider the pitfalls of loading conflicting databases, e.g. loading a SuperLeague database which contains Arsenal, Liverpool, etc and also load an edited Premiership which also contains these teams... of course the game will probably reject them as conflicting but something to consider
