I was really into my football manager 2008 saved game which i've been playing on and over for about a year now. On monday my computer went all dodgy and as a result i had to format to get it working again

Anyway this means i've lost my saved game I managed to recover it using a recovery program BUT it wont load is there anyway of rebuilding the file or anything so it will be able to load. It would be such a shame to left this game die!

Have you patched your game?

If the save was from an originally patched game it cannot be played on the game unpatched.

Have you found the .fm file?

If so, it should work if you have recovered it, did you install the same patch as your were using before?

Yes the game is all patched just like it was before the format. I also recovered a file which was also the same file but had (backup7) next to the name. But that wont load either

It is possibly corrupt then I am afraid.

Yea i thought it might be but this there anyway to rebuild the file? is there any programs out there that can do it? I'm guessing all the files are in the .fm file but just not in order

I never heard of one. The usual explanation even from SI testing staff on here is that is corrupt and that is it.

Just try my luck once more. Anyone else know if its possible to get a corrupt saved game working again?
