    Default Football Manager 2012 Demo FAQ

    General Questions:

    First things first, where can I download the FM 2012 Demo?

    The demo this year is only available to download and play via the Steam platform. If you don’t already have Steam, you can download and install it from here:

    If you already have Steam, the demo can be found here:

    A general FAQ in regards to Football Manager and why the game is on Steam this year can be found here:

    How do I install the FM 2012 Demo?

    You can download and install the game by clicking here:

    - Click the green ‘Install Demo’ button for the Football Manager 2012 Demo
    - You should now be informed of the game size and estimated download time, make sure you have enough space on your hard-drive to install the game
    - Click the ‘Next’ button
    - Choose whether you want a start menu shortcut and/or a create desktop shortcut, then click ‘Next’
    - The demo should now begin downloading; you can track the process of the download by looking at the blue process bar at the bottom of Steam
    - Click ‘Finish’
    - If you click in the ‘Library’ section, the demo should be highlighted in yellow showing you how much of the download has been completed and the current download speed
    - When the game finishes downloading there will be a pop-up in the bottom right hand corner of Steam telling you it’s completed
    - Go to your Library, right click on the Football Manager 2012 Demo and click ‘Play Game’
    - The game will perform the first time set-up and when complete will launch the game

    I’ve gone to start up my game via the Football Manager 2012 Start Screen, but ‘Start New Game’ is greyed out – why is this?

    Included in the demo are the Quick Starts only, so to start the game click the Quick Start and choose the league which you wish to play. Bear in mind the available leagues will depend on what region demo you have downloaded.

    What are the minimum specs for running the Football Manager 2012 demo on my system?


    OS - Windows XP/Vista/Windows7
    Processor - XP - 1.4ghz or faster Vista/W7 - 2.0hgz or faster
    Memory - XP-512MB Ram, Vista/W7 - 1GB Ram
    Video Card - 128MB minimum.
    Supported Chipsets – Nvidia FX5900 Ultra or greater; ATI Radeon 9800 or greater; Intel 82915G/82910GL or greater
    Earlier cards may only display 2D Match Viewer Mode and are not supported. Laptop versions of these chipsets may work but are not supported.


    OS – OS X 10.5.8/10.6.x or higher
    Processor – Intel Processor
    Video Card – 128MB Nvidia GeForce 7300 GT or greater, ATI Radeon X1600 or greater

    Please note, if you system doesn't meet the requirements, the game may work, but we/SEGA do not offer support on these machines. We suggest people who aren't certain if it'll work do indeed try the demo first before buying the game.

    What leagues can I run via the Demo?

    In the demo you can only run 'quick start' games, which only run one league and a small database.

    The demo includes the following:

    Australia, Belgium, Denmark, England, France, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, Scotland, Spain and Sweden.

    Will I be able to download the Demo no matter where I am?

    I'm afraid users in Germany, China, Hong Kong, North Korea and South Korea will not be able to download the Demo.
