Game working fine, then crashed now won't even load (on Mac)

85 posts in this topic

Game was working really well on my Mac, flying through my pre-season then it unexpectedly quit with the error message:

Football Manager 2011 v 11 . 0 . 0 rc 150727 quit unexpectedly

I've tried reloading the game (via Steam) a few times and it now continually crashes just before the Start menu would appear (once all the sponsors, licence issue etc has run)...

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Can you try removing the 'Sports Interactive' folders from the following locations and trying again:

User > Library > Preferences

&

User > Library > Caches

Thanks

The demo code is the same as the full version but hopefully you won't have to keep doing this. Unfortunately this isn't something that I have encountered on any of our Macs in the office (or on my iMac or Macbook Pro at home) so I'm really not sure what has caused this issue.

Are you by any chance using MobileMe? FM2010 had an issue at a similar point which could be solved by disabling iDisk, it's a bit of a guess but it might be worth a look?

Can you also try clearing the 'Sports Interactive' folder from User > Library > Cache and let me know if this helps at all? It's only happening in Windowed mode? Is it happening with all graphic detail levels?

And this is happening every time in windowed mode? Sounds like a very odd issue, certainly not something i've seen on any of the machines i've tested on.

Just happened to me again, even after clearing the folders. I'm playing in windowed mode, will try in full screen.

If you kick off a match in full screen mode and then switch to windowed while the game is running (shift + cmd + f) do you have the same problem?

Maxtheking, are you discussing the graphics error or the crash?

Krybel is that correct that you're graphics card has 64mb of VRAM? That is way below minimum spec if so

Are these crashes happening after you've made a big transfer at all? Do they recreate from save games? If so could you upload them to our ftp so I can take a look, thanks

The problem just got worse for me - it now crashes at the last point before my saved game loads, so I can't even get into the game at the moment (this is after constantly deleting the folders)...

I think this is the same crash as a couple of other people have had in the demo information thread. I'm fairly confident it is regarding breaking your team's transfer record. Rest assured that we're looking into it and apologies for the issues.

It crashes everytime i try to respond to "Unbeatable Newcastle enter the record books". Maybe it has something to do with breaking records?

Thanks for the info Max. The issue is very much under review

happening on my macbook aswell. crashed after completing record signings with birmingham.

when you say 'the issue is very much under review?' what do you mean by that? are you going to fix it for the full game release? or update the demo? im gutted ive waited to play the demo for a long time and not it is unplayable.

Are those of you experiencing the records crash logged into Twitter in the game at all? If not could you perhaps try logging in when you add a manager (if you have an account obviously) and giving it a go?

If you go to the 'Manage Subscriptions' screen and unsubscribe from any 'Records' related news items for both club and competition does the game still crash?

Had the exact same problems, happens at different times during the game and gets to the point where you load the previous saved game and before its loaded it quits unexpectedly.

having the same problem as everyone else on my macbook pro. game crashes after I make a big money signing, i realised it was when i broke record transfer fee so stopped signing torres but the crash still happens after signing chiellini for 30m. im assuming its after big money transfers? would really appreciate a quick solution.

That said however i've just loaded the saves provided yesterday in the non-steam demo and neither of them crashed here so it would be worth a try.
