I tried asking on the Steam Mac forum earlier, registered hours ago to post my problem and still not been activated. Waste of time!

exactly the same scenario for me!! my one day off which i want to play FM and its ruined. have to say this would never have

happened on previous versions. granted these last few are better but for people who dont play it online its a heavy price to pay

This is the particular problem, why can't we boot from the disc like we used to and can we have that feature back? a valid question since someone from SI is currently on this thread

Use the search function and you'll find it discussed ad nauseum, this thread isn't for that discussion, ta!

Edit, you could start here http://community.sigames.com/showthread.php/275972-Football-Manager-2012-Activation-Steam-FAQ

the reasons for not be allowing to boot via disc are to stop the illegal copying and distribution of this game and to protect the profits that sega and SI will make from each new version, thats acceptable and understandable but not if these problems caused by updates and steam are going to stop us paying customers from playing our product..

It is focussed on the particular problem. Im just stating that we never used to experience these problems with previous games before all the updates came along?

Your right, we experienced different kinds of problems before steam came along.

Nope, we just had different sets of problems, how short people's memories are:)

Nevertheless, let's keep this thread on the topic of resolving this particular issue please.

Fantastic gaming platform!! Great pick, SI!

We didn't delete complaining posts actually we dealt with posts discussing piracy. Please keep this thread on topic so we can keep track of users experiencing the issue. Thanks.

I'm seriously sick of this . I own the game and I can't play whenever I want, because there is something wrong with steam all the time. I'll never buy it again.

Wait, after almost 12 hours with this issue, you still don't know where is the problem?

You have to call Mr. Wolf then, my dear

Yea of course. Sorry for that. I'm just a bit pissed off for the problem. Just keep us updated about steam responses.

Seems that the issue is hitting all mac users (as i am)

Nope, just with FM, mind you I only have one other game via steam but that works fine.

I remember back in the days...before the "modern age" with Steam. Then I could play my FM game whenever I wanted. That was really fun.

Now I can't play it when I want. Not as fun anymore.

Will I continue to play FM after this? Not sure.

Have the same problem for the record.

Played until 00:45 this morning and was up and ready again at 07:30

Still waiting, and getting very bored of Mario Kart!

Sid Meiers Pirates is a better standby, sinking a few galleons is cathartic:)

Indeed this sucks, a whole day off meant for my fm save just down the drains. Is this a mmorpg we're playing and downtime is expected? Erm, no.
