Validate game files; it may find one or two tiny files that are missing. Worked for me.

Where do we store our own graphics as I have checked my documents and there is no FM12 folder? Do we just create one?

Hard to find.

In STEAM screen go to SETTINGS menu and click on TOOLS

Scroll down to FM editor and download.

My copy didn't arrive in the post today. Please sue the Post Office on my behalf. Also I want a free wonderkid for every moment I can't play.

You have pre-ordered with us and will thus receive your download links and activation key by email from 21/10/2011 00:00 British Time.

This sentence made my day, but now I find that nothing has been dropped in my inbox yet :/ How can I change this?

Seeing as the only means you can play the game is through steam.. No :), all patching is done through steam.

Hi,

It's been almost 20 minutes since the launch and i still haven't got the activation keys email !!

I've stayed awake until nown (1 a.m) just for this...

I bought it from the official Sega FM website...and that's what's most frustrating ! People who have bought the game from other places are already playing, and the ones that bought it directly from Sega are still waiting !

just got home from a day out on the drink with clients. during the day i got a text from the wife to say that game had delivered 2 packages this morning - football manager twice!!!!!

now this is always a bonus and has allowed me to give a copy to a mate free of charge of course (only condition being a look at his wife naked!!!!)

now in all seriousness, having come home at 11pm thursday night the 1st thing i did was load the game onto my mac. having done so and being honest i was concerned by the steam activation. I have to say though within 10 minutes i have installed the game, the game has automatically downloaded the patch and i was ready to go (activated) at 11:50pm on thursday evening.

for someone concerned by the steam activation i am impressed and really looking forward to fm12. i hope this is a sign of things to come. kutgw si

Why is the patch 12.0.2 out of interest? Surely it should be 12.0.1?

Anyway game looks fantastic so far, loving the new layout, glad I didn't use the demo because this is all new to me and more exciting :D

I load the game via steam and it says loading, but nothing appears on screen?!

I've pressed play against and it says FM12 is already open, and i've tried cntrl alt del to end the process and start again but it does the same thing?! Why?

Same problem as Benfran, I have bought from www.play-sc.com and have not received an email with a key

You'll have to take that up with the distributor I'm afraid. Not much we can do here in that regard :(
