Post Need help locating installation files on Mac
Hi guys,

Recently purchased the game for mac, purchased straight from the app store, its installed and works fine. Problem is i want to add good horses to my game but i cant for the life of me find where this game is saved to on my hard drive, im familiar with add ons for football manager so i dont know why im having so much trouble locating where i need to put these horse files.

Also if you can give a step by step guide on that would be great.

thanks in advance

I never had a mac but my export horses files are stored like this.

Click My Documents which is in library open up SO5 click exports folder you get four folders all named click the one that say horses.
Like I said it may be different on mac never had a mac 8)

P.s

If you talking about horses you have exported into the game pool then just click the Transfer button on your games main page all horses saved tha way are in there.

Go into the RACE BUILDER from the main game menu and look for the path displayed towards the bottom of the screen. That is where your exports are.

thanks, still not solved it.

this is the link on my race builder

users/Me/Library/Containers/co.uk.strategicdesigns.so5/data//library//startersorders5//exports

Users (fine), Me (fine) library (problem its not there) to add insult to injury, i even searched for containers and there is no folder relating to the game called containers.

the only file related to this game i have found on my mac is the actual file to open the game.

hmm love this game but is frustrating because i know it would be even better

HI,

The library folder is hidden on a mac, which is why you are having trouble finding it :D

use the Finder's Go->Go To Folder… menu and paste in "~/Library/Containers"

You will then find the folders you're looking for.

I used this information to change the jockeys names.

However the changes don't take effect and even if i save the file it reverts back to original. How do i change the names please?

can any admin help with this situation as i feel the incorrect names for jockeys & trainers ruin the game?

thanks
