  1. xml parsing error

    I can't play the game due to an XML parsing error If you have a shortcut on your desktop you can do the following: * Right-click on the FM shortcut. * Choose "Properties" from the pop-up menu. * In the "Target" field, add the --reset_preferences command line option after "fm.exe", so it should look like this: "C:\Program Files\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2009\fm.exe" --reset_preferences * Press OK and then try to run the game as normal, using the shortcut. You'll want to remove the command after you run the game, as otherwise it will continue to reset your preferences every time you launch. make sure theres a space so it should look like this "fm.exe" then a space --reset_preferences If you don't have a shortcut you can make one and then perform the instructions on the shortcut you've made. * If you purchased and installed the game through Steam you should be able to find the fm.exe in the following directory: C:/Program Files/Steam/SteamApps/Common/Football Manager 2009/ * If you purchased and installed the game from a boxed DVD copy you should be able to find the fm.exe in the following directory: C:/Program Files/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2009/

  4. Known issues and solutions - FAQ

    run it in windowed choose options then preferences then display and sound then choose your screen resolution at the top choose windowed Full Screen 'Freezing' Issue We are still working on improving this issue for Patch 3. Some hardware may have already benefited from some of the changes we've done in Patch 2, but we are aware there are still some users affected by this problem. If you are still experiencing the game locking up when playing in full screen mode, please play in Windowed Mode. its a known issue

  7. gob smacked

    i know this isn't about football manager but i have just come on and read the sticky for the new patch, good idea walkers and the mods for putting it up but after reading it i am very disappointed, is this what we've descended into they try to help and thats what happens forums are supposed to be about debate and help and its turned into a disgrace the person has been banned but a public flogging would be better. sir shame on you that was there for the good of the forum for people to read and contribute but again another thread ruined by members that cant even be civil or constructive, another good idea ruined. i dread to think what new members think when they read some of the things posted on this site. i go to bed now hoping tomorrow that i will have a early Christmas gift off si but if not i will like the rest wait with baited breath for news of the new patch. good try guys thanks for the effort but another thread shot down in flames
