My game keeps crashing on this date and I can't advance.
My game keeps crashing on this date and I can't advance.
Hacked copy of the game?
Hmmmm....have heard a rumour that that is down to a pirating issue. May of course be wrong and apologies if I am.
Apologies for the comment then!
Yup, same here.
I have a 100% copy of the game. I don't pirate anything. I can post a picture of it if I have to.
they have now closed that thread because they know what the problem is.
So I now have a game and save I am playing and I can't get past that date.
So what are my supposed to do play one season only or maybe not load the italian leagues?
It looks like it is a problem with the Serie C Cup that is causing your save games to crash.
Try another league?
I had a 46 league career game going, so I am a bit gutted.
I am now running a holiday game with just down to serie b running to see if it gets past that date.
I think SI should get a small hotfix out for this asap.
I remember a couple of years back there was an issue with the Spanish Leagues where there was a problem with player registration that virtually made playing the Spanish Leagues unplayable, it was eventually rectified in a patch, took a while though iirc. Think it was FM06?
I think SI should put a sticky up telling people not to run Serie C until its fixed.
3.2 ghz quad core, 8gb ram(FM only uses 2 gb despite all of that ram I have.
Go on holiday to overide the crash, hopefully.
Did go on holiday and it did not avoid it.
OMG Thanks for the warning, Im glad I did some reason before starting a game AGAIN!
So this Serie C bug only happens if you have it running? If so I'll just run Serie B.
No way in hell am I waiting till end of feb for ta fixable patch.
BTW I'm gutted for those who have ready have this league running, it is actually one of the default recommended leagues for most computers.
WARNING TO ALL!!
Must say don't like the way SI say we will fix it in the next patch. Who i the hell is going to wait till Feb to play their saved game?
I completely agree its ridiculous that we have to wait until the next patch to be released surely they could just release a quick fix now?
No such thing as a quick fix.
It has to be thoroughly tested to make sure that there are no knock-on effects.
Why don't you put a sticky up? Would be very useful, no?
And nobody looks at them anyway, they post yet another thread.
Besides, it's working for some people. Even some people who it hasn't been working for, it suddenly works one day and they advance as if nothing was wrong.
do you have 3 divisions of the Iatalian league running. I know this causes a problem summer 2009, if so try a search. I think its a known issue they hope to fix in a future patch
If not do you have an earlier save you can go back to?
Mine works, I even played in serie C past that date. I think it's only for some people.
Mine is doing exactly the same. Crashing at a certain date wich is 24th July 2009. I have quite a few leagues selected as playable. I have tried going on holiday but it wont get past this date whatever i do. Should i try starting a new game with less leagues or is there a way to fix this problem?
i'm playing in italy right now but i've turned off serie c cup in editor. i encountered the dump as well, in my first career game. v frustrating.
can we all please stop with the piracy hysteria? its bad enough we have the drm without everyone getting neurottic.
what on heck??? I was playing serie A with juventus and it just crashed.... darn!!! when are they going to release the fix... hope it is savegame compatible... just won euro cup and italia cup...
I wish someone would explain all the conditions for the Serie C crash. I have Serie C selected and playable, and while I'm only in December 2008, I was able to go on holiday and come out fine on Aug 1 2009.
it seems like a fixture crash rather than a league issue.
this expalins why it is not consisyently reproducable.
anyway it is fixed. si have announced this. just await the new patch.
there are many reasons why they havent released a hot fix: deliberately annoying people is not one of them i am sure. there is probably cascade issue or the crash is linked to multiple tiers of interaction that cannot simply be hacked around without causing problems to other bug fixes. fm has more than one bug remember!
I only have Serie A selected but still got the same error. Thank God, the game was saved a bit earlier than this date so i didn't miss a lot.
I deleted the file which was created under in my documents/sports interactive/ crash dump folder and managed to pass that date.
I only have Serie A selected from Italy, and I am getting this issue, although I get it on September 4. Has anyone come up with a solution that works?
I have the same problem...Crash dumps 24-july -2009.do we have to wait till the new patch comes out or what? What if I start a new game,will the same problem appear?(without Serie C)
Agree, no such thing as due diligence testing either...No such thing as a quick fix.
erm is there anyone this bug DOESN'T affect with serie c on? if so, could you do me a BIG favour please. load this game; http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?mlyyixgnmxn (save it to documents/si/fm09/games etc) just continue til the 25th of july (i'm on the 23rd) and leave/delay all pressing news etc. i'd love you to bits. i REFUSE to start a new game i am desperate to continue with this one!
I'll do it... Just wait a couple of minutes
I haven't played with Serie C, so I don't know if this will afeect me..
I'll report back...
I'm sorry, but I got the same thing...
You have a good squad though...
lame! thanks for trying. yeah it's taken a while to assemble, so desperate to continue
it happens on the 28th may 09 without serie c selected.
disgrace. i dont pay £30 to get told 'wait for a patch'.
si games have lost my loyalty over this issue.
yeah i can take every single other issue i've found with the game but one that has stopped me being able to play it. there's literally no way i will ever buy another version again until the second patch is released, at the earliest.
Will the patch be savegame compatible?
When will it be released. I'm frustrated and I want to play on my current career. No way in hell I am starting alle over again!!
Happened to me too FFS.
Ive got English, Spanish and Italian leagues loaded.
Is there any word on when we can expect a fix for this?
There seems to be a total lack of information on this issue on here, the mods just close the thread, and just say "we know what the problem is"
I'd like to know if there is any sort of timetable for a fix. Cant a small fix be made available for this issue. Its affecting a great deal of people, and makes the game useless until its fixed. Im not wasting my time starting up a new game. (as has been told to people) What's the point in that....the same thing is more than likely to happen.
Seeing as my thread got closed.
I'll ask it again in here.
Can Mac users expect this problem to be fixed in the (hopefully) soon to be released first patch?
Originally when the game started crashing, it was always at 19.45......but ive been continually trying to see if by luck it can somehow fix itself. Its managed to get to 22.00 now. But it seems to not want to go any further at all.
