  1. Football Manager 2018 Announcement

    We haven't released a list of compatible tablets yet.
  2. Broken achievements.

    Thanks we will look into these.
  3. Have you tried the above? Have you removed any custom graphics?
  4. Thanks. For now I'd suggest using full screen then in this case.
  5. Please try the following:- I've updated/tried launching the game and it is crashing. We have found that some users with extremely large amounts of files in their user data folder such as graphics, tactics, may have difficulty launching the game on Mac. Go to Documents > Sports Interactive > Football Manager 2017 Back up any save files you need. Delete the Football Manager 2017 folder Launch the game again

  7. Can you try running the game in windowed mode? Set the Custom Launch Option "-windowed" on Steam. It may be worth also trying to roll back your drivers, and if you are using multiple monitors, to disconnect the extra monitor(s) from your system and try again. Let us know how you get on.
  8. No, it's not possible on Windows Phone I'm afraid.
  9. Make sure both of you have the download region set to your nearest location. I'd also like to hear whether there is any improvement if both of you play on a wired connection.
  10. Go to the Apple Logo at the top left of your screen -> About this Mac. Screenshot the window that comes up please - this will give me an idea of your specs
  11. There are a number of factors that might affect speed. In this case we are looking at the 'client' - the person connecting. First and foremost the person hosting the game should have good upload speeds. For best performance for speed, you should use a wired connection, not wireless (wireless devices will generally get much worse speeds). It will also help if all users connected are using the same Steam Download region in your Steam settings (this is so you can see the game, but if its close to you as well will also optimise performance). The size of your save game will also matter a great deal in terms of leagues and players loaded. The more the game has to process that information, send it, then display it can also contribute to issues among users. It's worth checking your bandwidth (are others in the home using the internet as well, are you streaming at the same time etc) - and also, playing outside general peak hours to see if the connection improves at all. You can choose to optimise your routers to prioritise Steam gameplay, too if your router provides this option in the admin settings. So, some questions: What leagues are you running How many players are loaded Is the save game using edited data files? Are either of you using third party graphics? What Steam Download Region are you both set to? What times of the day are you usually playing, and when do you encounter the issue? What else are you using the internet for generally when playing FM online? Streaming? Downloading? etc. Are you played wired or wireless? Do either of you have a firewall set up? Does performance increase in Windowed mode?
  12. Morale - How are you finding it in FMC?

    There isn't really any need to bump a 5 year old thread. If you need help with the game please post your own thread and people can help you.
  13. Football Manager 2008 Install MAC help =)

    To get the best help for you, it would be helpful to know in the first instance what your Mac specs are. Without this its hard to provide you tailored feedback to help you. Back in 2008 (2007 even, as that's when FM08 was released), there were still a lot of Macs that were not Intel based. So, the game was made as Mac 'Universal'. What this means is if you have a later Mac OS, (up to Snow Leopard / 10.6, you might need Rosetta installed.) It may have issues running on Lion (10.7) or later. Something like Parallels may help, but you would need to source a Windows license too for a compatible Windows version that will run FM08. And of course, make sure you have a Parallels version that works on your MacOS as well.
