Hi all. It's the first time I write in this forum, but I've been reading for a while.

I'm in serious trouble with FM06. I've been playing for years in my computers, without any kind of problems, in my original copy and with the 6.0.3 patch.

But now, everytime I start a game, after some years it appear the next message I add on the picture: "A serious trouble was found and the app will close. An error archive has been generated in d:/Sports Interactive/ Foo...". (I've translated from Spain but is basically that).

It always happen the same over and over again and in the same date. I've tried to uninstall and eliminate any remains of the game, but the problem remains.

I may tell you that, recently I format the pc and installed windows 8.1. With any other previous versions the problem didn't appear, but I don't know if this could be an important fact. Maybe Nvidia drivers?

I'm desperated. Football Manager 2006 is my favourite. I've playing games going throug the 2020s without problem, but now I don't know what to do.

I'm not using the editor or a third party database, just the official 6.0.3 patch

If you reformatted your PC you will have lost all hardware drivers so start by updating the graphics card driver and make sure that DirectX and Java are also fully updated.

But I think the problems could come from the change from 8.0, to 8.1 

I formatted the pc 3 or 4 months ago, and changed from 8 to 8.1. Before that, I was plating FM 06 at this compiter for more than 2 years without problem

Drivers, directx and java are fully updated

After the pc formatted I had to unistall some Windows 8.1 updates to make the game run, becouse I was unable to start the game due to this. I uninstalled some W8.1 updates and I made the game run, but now I found this.

That's why I think that I may get back to Windows 8 or 7

another question... does it also matter the amount of leagues? I'm pretty sure that with Windows 8.0 I didn't experience the problem I'm suffering now. But I may tell you that, in the current game, I'm running almowst 40, however just 15 of them in "playable mode". I also read some years ago in that "crash dump guide" http://www.fm-base.co.uk/forum/football-manager-2010/33419-crash-dumps-prevention-solutions.html that the amount of playable leagues is extremely joint with the chances of experiencing a crash dump. Anyway just 15 of my 40 leagues are playable. My pc has a 4 GB RAM

Personally at this stage, I would suggest that there are very few advantages in updating to W8 from W7- W7 is much more stable.

We always recommend that , if possible, you switch off all other programs that are running while FM is on, to reduce the chance of a software conflict.

The amount of leagues and database size that you use will certainly have an impact on the long term stability of the game and exceeding the recommended limit will definitely increase the chance of the game crashing.

I'm gonna try to reformat and install Windows 7. I don't like 8.1 at all.

I'll try that and beginning a game with jast about 9 or 10 leagues and see what happen. 

Before the last format I played FM06 games in which I entered in the 2020s without problems. I did it in Windows 8 before the last pc format, but I'll try Winows 7.

I'm tired of having crash dumps and broken games always in January at the same dates. It get me sick. I've been playing FM for the last 20 years and I need it without being afraid of that

Just the last question, as I'm in doubt.

I know it's important not to select too much leagues in order to prevent from crash dumps. So, does it mean to not select it at all or it's enough with running it in "view mode".

I mean, everything I've read recommend not to select more than 9-11 leagues, but I don't know if it just refer to "playable leagues". I.e. selecting 9-10 playable leagues, and some other in "viewable mode" also increase the risk of suffering crash dumps?

I ask that becouse, when you are configuring at the beginning of your game, If you select a league in "viewable mode" it doesn't increase the number of players, neither affect to the game speed.

Personally I cannot see any point in having leagues in view only as the amount of detail that you can access is limited, so I would suggest that you load the leagues that you are really interested in and leave the test

That's why I'm asking. I've read in some forums that you can add leagues in "view mode" as much as you want, as it doesn't make the game slowly and the amount of detail is limited.

You don't find it interesting, but I do, becouse, despite I'd only choose 7-8 leagues in which I'd like to play, i find interesting to see the results in as mach leagues as possible. Just only to see who is the champion, but I'd like to do it.

That's why I'm asking. I've always read that adding leagues in "view mode" doesn't affect to the speed of the game nor increase the chance of suffering a crash dump.

Secondly; I know it will sound stupid but, using an external screen conected to my portatil pc with a VGA to VGA cable, could affect or increase the chance of suffering crash dumps?

You play the game whatever way you like it- if there are no extra players added, then the impact on game speed etc will be small.

Using an external screen should have no effect on having crash dumps

Hi! I was playing in my favourite FM 06, best game 4 me, I love it. I was manager of one team many years (Monaco). But it seems to be crash dump, cause I can't open two save-files - "Saved game didn't load". I was using original disc, patch 6.0.3 and live-editor. My OS - 7. It's the disaster for me : ( I can send the files to repair if I can ask for it...

Regards, Kamil "kamil zumek"

Do you have a backup save that loads?  Has there been any power issues while running or saving the game?

That were the backups on pen-drive and they crashed. Hmm, what kind of power issues? I don't think so. I had that crush dumps many times, but now I saw the saves on pen-drive broke.

That could be a hardware issue with the pen drive.  The power issues could be a crash while the game was running or saving or a power cut or a battery running out etc

If a save has been corrupted, then it cannot be recovered.  The only repair that can be done is for a coding error and for a 12-year-old game, that would be unlikely I'm afraid.
