i'm having problems i've never had before on any fm game. Game seems fine but then in october or november the game crashes. Gets stuck or just shuts down. I keep forgetting to save the game, so keep having to restart.
I am running intel mac book pro, 2.2 Ghz intel core 2 duo and 4gb ram, with Leopard.
I'm a Mac user and mine has crashed only once. I have however only played on it once, for around seven hours consecutively. I was playing a Europa League qualifier and it crashed just as the oppositions forward scored, the game seemed to freeze for around 30 seconds before exiting and bringing up Crash Reporter.
Looking on the bugs forum it seems as though a lot of people are experiencing crashes, and they are concluding it has something to do with the game being somewhat memory hungry.
I had it all the time (about 3/4 in a row, the players just started running in one place, then it crashed) in one match on my macbook pro on the demo, again around october; it's the reason i haven't bought the game.
I also had a few 'unexpected shutdowns' on my MacBook yesterday and it was really getting frustrating. I read somewhere that sound was the problem so I disabled the sound 'in-game' rather than computer volume.
Fingers crossed, I haven't had another crash since. Might be worth a try.
hi, yes i posted a similar thread and this does seem to be a common issue. i wish si would get back to us mac users as to why this is happening! just make sure you save fairly often incase it happens again!
I'm having the same problems. SI games can I just say even if turning the sound off does work, can you confirm you'll create something in a future patch to fix this? I paid 30 pounds to play this game fully, not just without sound to make it work.
Well we'll definitely be looking to fix it for a future patch but for the time being its probably best to keep sound disabled if it is causing crashes for you (it isn't for all Mac users by a long shot)
Which setting are you using on the "sound cache" in the preferences ? If you are not on the "All" setting, can you try that and see if it helps with the crashes on goal-bound shots. The next step would be to try turning the sound off completely as some users have reported this to have helped.
