I have the same problem with my FM12 save. It's been working fine for the last few weeks but just there I got "the save game could not be loaded". I can't restore the file unfortunately as I don't have file history enabled on Windows 8. Other saves on my Laptop work fine. Is this a lost cause? Nothing unusual happened when I saved it the last time so it's a shame...
What version of the game are you running?
How many leagues were you running in your save with what sized db?
1 league playable, 10 view-only, large db
Do you know which leagues they were?
French league playable 3 divisions, view-only: England (2 divisions), Russia, Spain, Portugal, MLS, Netherlands, Argentina, Brazil, Italy, Germany (all one division)
Have you used the add/remove function at all?
No kept it that way from the start
Have you used the Editor/Advanced Editor or FMRTE? If so what changes have you made with which one?
Have you got any backup save games? If so do these still load?
Yes a couple from a long way back which still load, name of the file is "Rennais New 2"
Please tell me if I should upload the file and let you take a look at it. Wasn't sure if I should have made my own thread but I will if this doesn't get answered in a few days.
Thanks in advance! (Sorry if I missed any info I should have given)
