Apologies, I can't add a tag of the build number as the game won't load. I have the latest update (as far as I'm aware) and have updates set to automatic. AtarinFM 2017 v18.104.22.1680983 (2017.10.04 15.15.22).dmp - I am using Windows 10 and the latest Java.etc The process I used to change the launch location was as follows. - I created a Sports Interactive folder in the new location. - Within that I created a Football Manager 2017 folder. - I copied across all of the subfolders (including files) from my current launch location. - I went to Steam>Library>Games>Football Manager 2017. - I right clicked on the game. Went to Properties>General>User Launch Options. - I coped and pasted the Command Line --user_data_location="G:\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2017" from the official guide here link. - I changed the G to the letter that corresponds to my HHD. - I closed Steam. - Launched FM17. - The game got to the loading screen (FM logo background with the word "Loading" flashing in the bottom right hand corner in various languages) and the game crashed, alerting me to a crash dump file. - I attempted to launch the game a second time, this time the game reached the same Loading screen again but remained there for some minutes. - I was unable to close the game safely and so hit Cntl+Alt_Dlt and closed it that way. I imagine by setting the launch options back to their original location I will be able to play the game again but its important that I do change the launch location relatively soon and so would appreciate some guidance on how to fix this problem. Thanks.
