    Cook Pass, Babtridge - Bringing balance to The Force, not leaving it in darkness.
  1. I'm not about to sit here and read 23 pages, so I'll p resume some has already made a point of suggesting an improvement that the game has needed for some time; realistic preparation before a major tournament. One friendly, 8 months before the start of the tournament, is just shambolic really.
  2. So is today officially 'Freddy Day' in Manchester or what? Will SSN show him arriving etc?

Zone Alarm, Norton Internet Security, Sygate any of these applications installed ? these will all stop you playing fm online. </div></BLOCKQUOTE> Everything is sound at my end. All stuff turned off on both computers. Anything on his Win 98 that may be affecting it?

  6. Thanks for the replies, fellas. This is not the first time that NTL have inadvertantly ruined my day, heh. To be honest, I'd rather sack off the whole idea of a network game than uninstall etc as I have loads of graphics stuff in there that took me ages to compile plus several saved game. I dont have a blank CD on me either. If needs must I'll copy them in to a back-up folder and get on with it. What I will do now is load it up and uncheck the run as server. I didnt know that this would still be activated after I had exited and then attempted an old game. All I wanna do now is just play the game on my own. My bro freaked when I told him this morning that I had 'destroyed champ man'. Cheers again mates
  7. I swear to god Im going to kill someone. Me and a friend fancied a network game. Ive never done it before and seeing as how Ive have my band broadened to 1MB (NTL obv. ) I said I'll host. Came in here for some brief instructions and noticed this thread. So I download that 14MB file. 'Do you wnat to replace yada yada with blah blah'. Clicked yes. Downloads. Attempted to start the game by clicking on said .exe, 'Cannot find data folder!' "Here we go......" Clicked on my desktop FM icon (the non-tainted exe ) and the game starts. Nice one. I go to Network, hit New Game (Prem only, 5.0.5 etc) and it loads up. Before even adding a manager, I go to Preferences and select the 'Run as Server' option, just naming it randomly. Click continue, and that was it. Full-on freeze for about 15 minutes until I ctrl+alt+del the whole thing off. Now, here is the good bit. Hours later, I start the game again and attempt to load my 6 season-long saved game. I set it off loading and put the kettle on. Come back 5 mins later and its frozen again - just on the menu screen with the mouse pointer as the football. Please, for the love of god, someone tell me what the hell is going on.
