    I don't know mate you need to put some more detail up example: leagues loaded, has is happened before?, are you running any unusual apps?, type of mac (probably not the problem as all macs are great)

    I've got this problem too, only happens during the match though. Quits to desktop and gives you the option of reporting to Apple, ignore or relaunch.

    Used to happen every now and then (every 6th match or something) but now I've got chelsea in the League Cup and it happens every time I try to play this game, which is weird.

    Running:

    Macbook - 2.1GHz, 4GB Ram on Leopard 10.5.8 and the latest Mac patch.

    Probably a compatibility issue between FM and Macs, could be a Mac problem though.

    Could be to do with the Operating System you are using, evryone should post what Operating Systems they are using and say if their game's are crashing too? (like Snow, Lepord, OSX)



    Sorry I don't know much about Apple Mac's, just trying to help.

    What were you doing when the game quit? Were you in a match, changing tactics, processing etc? Please let us know, thanks.

    happened during a game, crystal palace player was through on goal, about to score, then it crashed. I wasn't on the new patch though, just original, how the game comes.

    It's only ever happened to me when I was in game, runs fine when I'm going through the menus etc.

    It also only ever seems to happen when a player is through on goal, just after the ball is played. It will freeze for a few seconds then quit back to the desktop.

    Those of you who are getting crashes during matches on Macs, can you try disabling your sounds in the game's preference screen, this could help. Thanks

    Not had any joy with this. I've had it crash 3 times, each at different places. First was at half time in a match, second was making a substitution and third was going to a news item.

    Have the sound disabled and am running the newest patch.

    So not in actual match action at any point? Have you tried deleting your cache before starting the game? What are your machines specs please?

    The substitution one was as it was making the subs in the match.

    Yeah saw that suggestion and tried that too, no joy.

    Here you go;

    Model Name: MacBook
    Model Identifier: MacBook2,1
    Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo
    Processor Speed: 2 GHz
    Number Of Processors: 1
    Total Number Of Cores: 2

    Mac user here. The issue is exactly the same as I have experienced - game crashes during a match when a team is about to score a goal in 'key' highlights. The save game is not very old, and the issue is doesn't happen too frequently (I tend to save before matches anyway).

    FM 10 v10.1
    Mac Snow Leopard (up-to-date)
    2.0ghz Core 2 Duo, 4gb RAM, Nvidia 9400M

    Does it create a crash report anywhere that we can upload?

    Thanks.

    It happened to me four times in an hour the other day but after disabling the sound in the preferences, I haven't had it happen again.
