If you're having issues when saving the game, there are a few things we'd suggest trying to see if you can get this process to work successfully.
First of all, if within a save game try going to FM -> 'Save As'. When prompted to save, try saving to a different location than default (such as the desktop) and see if the game saves. If you can save there, then there is a problem with where your default Sports Interactive files are pointed and we'd suggest reading our FAQ on How to Change the Folder Location.
If you're still having issues or the game crashes whilst saving, this can happen when during the saving process the GPU switches from Nvidia to Intel. During the switching phase the Nvidia GPU goes to sleep and fails to respond again when used. You can change your graphics card configuration to fix this as follows:
- Right Click on your desktop and select 'Nvidia Control Panel'
- Click 'Manage 3D settings'
- Select 'Program Settings' and via the dropdown box for 'Select a program to customise' select 'Football Manager 2019'
- Select 'Power Management Mode'
- If the default setting is 'Optimal Power', now select 'Prefer Maximum Performance'
- Select 'Apply'
This will hopefully fix your issue when saving.
If you're having an issue where the game seems to be saving, but you can't see if within FM (only within the folder location) please read and follow the instructions here - https://community.sigames.com/faq/football-manager-2019/183_technical-support/186_pc/cant-load-save-game-as-theres-no-fm-filepath-being-created-r688/
