Game is currently unavailable

10 posts in this topic

I have been playing fm/cm since 2000 and this is the first time I have considered just stopping playing. I had this error a few months ago, verified game cache and it was fine. Same happened a few days ago and once again verified game cache and it was fine. Just tried to get fm going this evening and it has come up with this error. I have verified cache 4 times and it's still not letting me play. This has just added to my frustration at all the stupid errors in the new patch, especially the fact that you cannot sign scouts for villa or Newcastle which seems so basic. I'm so frustrated at this stage and as a loyal customer just wanted to express my feelings.

Does anyone have any advice, tried restarting steam but it's just giving me the stupid update bar that never moves. Really running out of patience.

What do you mean your steam update is not progressing? What update? Close down Steam, relaunch, verify the cache and try to run the game.

I have tried restarting steam, but it just comes up with a box that says steam update 0% and doesn't progress from there. As I said I have verified cache 4 times before I tried to restart steam.

Okay. Break off your internet connection so that steam will give you the option to start in offline mode. Go to your download settings and change the region to something else (details on how to do this here - http://community.sigames.com/showthread.php/279162-Football-Manager-2012-*OFFICIAL*-FAQ?p=7184714&viewfull=1#post7184714). Save the change. That should fix the problem.

After probably 15 attempts to update stalling it has finally completed the steam update it needed to do, so i can hopefully get a couple of hours in tonight. Thanks for your help, especially you Neil. I hope you understand my frustrations but i do appreciate you taking time out on your bank holiday evening.
