View Full Version : Football manager on notebook

09-04-2010, 12:26
hello, I need help. I have new football manager 2010 and I want to play it on my Lenovo notebook, but I can't. On my big computer I installed the game and it works, but i have weak computer and it works very bad. my notebook is good, it has 128mb graphic card, 1gb Ram, but it doesn't work. I install teh game and when i go to play, nothing happens, nothing shows on screen, it works in bacground, and when i click again on FM icon, it says that game is already running. I assume that's because notebook has small screen. Can somebody tell me how to get it work, what should I do?

Don't think you can play it on notebooks

Try this courtesy of michaelmurrayuk in another thread:

To get FM working on a netbook you'll need to either expand your desktop resolution to 1024x768 or greater or apply the Netbook skin for best results and follow the instructions here (http://sites.google.com/site/michaeltmurrayuk/Skins/netbook09-skin)

I'd also recommend setting the Windows Taskbar to Auto-Hide mode.

It could be your resolution stopping the screen from showing. Try adding -windowed to the shortcut by right clicking and going to properties. Then where it says Target: add -windowed after the last " so it should read something like fm10.exe" -windowed at the end of the box. This will force FM10 to open in a resizable window.

I think michaelmurrayuk even made a nice skin for notebooks too.
