    Default Football Manager Handheld 2012 Support & F.A.Q.

    iPad/iPhone/iPod

    What should I do if I find a bug in the game?

    Please report it in the iPad/iPhone/iPod Bugs Forum providing as much information as possible. Screenshots are always very helpful.

    Can't continue at the end of a season on iPhone3g with iOS4.0
    This appears to only inflict iPhone3 owners (not iPhone 3gs) and can be solved by upgrading your iOS version to a later revision. The original iOS4.0 version uses slightly more memory than other revisions and also has some known issues with GameCenter which may affect the stability of your device (not just with FMH - this is a problem for all applications).

    How do I confirm a national team for a tournament?

    For International tournaments, your national squad must contain a certain number of players, usually 23. This is the case for the World Cup, for example. In these cases squads cannot contain more than, or less than, the stated number of players.

    If your current national squad contains the wrong number, you will be told the required number when attempting to Confirm your squad in the News message. You will need to remove any excess players or call up additional players if you do not have the correct number in your squad. This is not related to your team line up, which can be chosen when matches are about to take place.

    How do I start unemployed?

    Set the “Start Unemployed Allowed” to Yes in the Preferences, from the Main Menu. When you next start a new game, instead of picking a team to manage, just press Confirm. This will begin the game unemployed.

    How do I start as a nation?

    To start as a nation, you must first get a job as a nation during the game. Regularly visit the Jobs screen to see if any national teams have a manager vacancy. If you get a national job, you must win an international tournament in order to unlock national management. After winning it you will then be able to start as a nation in new games.

    How to email us a Save Game/How to delete saves:

    1) Plug your device into your computer
    2) Start iTunes
    3) Select your device within iTunes, from the Devices menu section
    4) View the 'Apps' tab
    5) Scroll down the screen to the 'File Sharing' area
    6) Highlight 'FM 2012'

    .dat files are your save games, and there can be up to 5 of them. The Manual Saves are named fm_save1.dat through to fm_save4.dat with the name reflecting the save slot used (1 = top slot, 4 = bottom slot). hidden.dat is the current Automatic Save file on the device.

    Email them to alari.naylor@sigames.com when requested.

    File sharing can also be used to transfer saves, shortlists and team selections to another device which has the game.

    Any file can be deleted here, by pressing Delete on your PC keyboard or Backspace on your Mac. Be careful not to delete game.cfg, which is your Preferences file, as it will contain any unlockables that you have achieved.

    The Manual is blank/empty:

    If the Manual is failing to display, try rebooting the app. This will fix the problem temporarily but a longer lasting fix is to reboot the device.
    To turn the device off: Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button for a few seconds until the red "slide to power off" slider appears, and then slide the slider.
    To turn it on again: Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears. It will then boot up in a few seconds.

    Why can't I play the Saviour Cometh Challenge in Australia or the Scottish Third Division?

    Because they do not have relegation, the Australian A-League and the Scottish Third Division are not available to manage in when doing the Saviour Cometh Challenge.

    The game fails to boot after I have installed it, what do I do?

    This will happen if the app has not installed correctly. The best advice is to delete the app from your device, reboot the device fully and then re-install the app. Don't worry, iTunes will know that you have already purchased the app and will let you download it again.

    To delete the app: Hold your finger on the FM 2012 icon until all the icons on your home screen begin to shake. Then click the "x" in the upper left hand corner of the FM 2012 icon and confirm.

    To turn the device off: Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button for a few seconds until the red "slide to power off" slider appears, and then slide the slider.
    To turn it on again: Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears. It will then boot up in a few seconds.
