HELP: Fm issues :/

13 posts in this topic

I have installed the demo on my netbook, used the compatability patch 9.1.0 and even added the -windowed_small_screen fix. I have all the necessary system specs apart from the video card ram.

This however isn't a problem as i installed it previously (before my entire computer got reset) and it worked fine. I have installed the direct sdk from microsoft.

It now does not open and when i click on the shortcut again it says the program is already running.

I go into windows task manager and sure enough it is there in my processes.

Please help :)

EDIT: I hope i posted this in the right place :)

My computer never runs the game in compatability mode - try running it in full mode.

Nopes, fm manager is still already running, it's not even in processes either :/

I'm sure I've seen this brought up a few times in the technical issues/PC support forum, maybe try asking there yeah?

He's talking about the demo patch, not compatibility mode.

Download the 9.3.0 patch (link at the top of GD)

9.3 doesn't work on the demo.

Depends on how good your computer is. What are your system specs?
