  1. didn't need to delete the cache - started right up. I will now systematically add in folder by folder and see if I can isolate which one was the culprit so others can learn from this. (I am very familiar with how to do this, I have been troubleshooting and fixing these types of problems for 30+ years now) will report back and hopefully help isolate the issue.
  2. Yes I have a ton of custom graphics and I can remove them and report back. the once concern I have is these did not occur imedialty after custom graphics, but sometime after. alos since it wont even load to initial menu not sure how I can get it to reload skin and forget about the previous graphics file. But I will delete all of the downloads from the drive and go from there to see if I can at least get it to launch
  3. last piece of information. took the same game files and copied them over to my laptop. all runs with zero issue on laptop, game loads, file loads all perfect. laptop has good specs (i7 processor, 12G RAM, 2G video card) but it is a minnow compared to the desktop it is crashing on (Xeon e5 processor, 32G RAM, Dual 8G Video Cards)
  4. also hotfix v 18.1.3 has been installed and has not solved problem
  5. tried reverting to NVidia drivers from August (crashes started 11/17) but no luck. still getting crash also already tried uninstall and reinstall of complete game. was really enjoying this version, but this is really frustrating FM 2018 v18.1.3.1045020 (2017.11.24 20.44.35).dmp DxDiag112417.txt

  7. I found and signed Gabirel Barbosa a couple of versions back and now every time I get a new game I make it a priority to sign him since he was so outstanding for me in the previous years. I noticed this year in game it says "Gabriel" and not "Barbosa." As a mostly clueless american football coach I am assuming that is because he goes by that name in real life. But I have gotten so use to "Barbosa" scoring that I would prefer it to say that. Is that something I can easily change? (yes, I did buy the in-game editor)
  8. I found this as well http://www.footballmanagerstory.com/fms-podcast/ But I miss the official podcast, it was perfect background for walks, traffic, etc. Not that I really need another podcast with the 1000+ unlistened to ones I already have on my phone, but I did really enjoy this one.
  9. wow, didn't mean this discussion to get off target. I will say I believe being able to continue saves would make we CONSIDERABLY more likely to buy the next version as I would always want to continue with my save, but enjoy the new features. I have purchased every single version of OOTP for that very reason (and to support the developer.) I believe the profit motive would absolutely make this a smart option. Having said that, one of the early responses pointed out how the database format changes too much, thus making it a technical hurdle. I do understand that, and their reluctance to dedicate resources to some sort of conversion utility. Would be a great feature if they ever added it, and I think they might be underestimating its appeal to the end user. I have already purchased FM14, but I do believe of all of the feature lists I have seen, continuing a season would be at the top of my list, surpassed only by the tactics plan.
  10. looking over the past four years the official FM Podcast has always started in September, we are now just days from October and I haven't seen anything. with the release imminent I would think now would be the time they would want to produce a podcast to increase awareness. I am hoping that haven't decided to abandon this podcast, I always found it insightful and entertaining. Perhaps I missed an announcement somewhere, but I cant seem to find any information one way or the other.
  11. best explanation I have heard. Makes complete sense. Still disappointed because of how much time I have invested in this save, and I am one of those people that simply plays one save for a long time vs lots of different ones. But I understand now and can plan accordingly.
  12. Please excuse me if this has been long answered or is not possible. My only defense is I am an American still relatively new to futbol and FM I preordered FM14 yesterday after being sucked in by several you tube videos, but I LOVE my v13 save. I have almost 500 hours in and am only in my third season. I am only doing so\so (4th in the EPL) but have spent so much time micromanaging this club I would hate to have to start all over. I have scoured the earth and built up a youth system of future stars and it will be so sad to never see them reach their potential. I also am having a hard time playing on, if I know that I wont be able to continue this save in about three weeks. Is there any easy way to import this save into the next game? I have been doing this in OOTP for years (in fact I have one save that I started on v1 and have imported every single year through the current v14)
  13. when it doubt with windows make sure to install by right clicking and choose "as administrator"
  14. OK, so I did play FM10, but just bought FM13 and am having some trouble. Please forgive me as I am sure this information is all over the forums, but I cant seem to find it - I also did a google search but am not finding anything definitive. I am playing in the Premier League and all of the kits look generic and not premier league specific. Also all my player faces are blank. I am a longtime OOTP player and in OOTP there are some simple all in one files that install logos and facegen images. Is there anything like that for FM? Also in OOTP I much prefer facgen images to "real" images for the simple reason if I sign a player, I want to see him in my colors and not his old team. any veterans have some advice for me, it would be much appreciated.
