FM 18 Stopped working after updating to the full game.

Recommended Posts

Previously i was able to launch the game and even started a save with Chelsea now i can't even launch the game at all after updating to the full game.. Is there any way of reverting back to the beta version until you guys are able to fix it?

Are you trying to run any custom graphics/logos/skins etc? If so try removing them and run the game again.

If that doesn't help, are you running any kind of anti-virus program? If so, what type?

Already removed all the custom graphics and it didn't work. Running Avira Antivirus..

Okay Avira can sometimes interfere with the installation or updating of games on Steam even when disabled or with exceptions set up. What we would suggest is turning on Windows Defender. Once this is done, if Avira is paid for, back up the activation code then uninstall it. Once it's fully removed, uninstall and reinstall FM. This will give it a chance to install correctly without any interfere. Then try the game again and let us know if you encounter the same issue.

Still doesn't work, Guess I'll have to wait for another patch. Thanks for the help anyway.

I don't think an update will fix this as it's related to how your system is trying to run the game - that's not trying to shift the blame, it's just how it seems to be in my experience with dealing with these types of issues.

Can you confirm if you're running any custom graphics/logo/skins or any add-ons? If so, if you remove them do you see the same issue?

If you're still having issues after trying the above, I would suggest a graphics card driver uninstall and reinstall could solve the issue. Details on how to do this below:

Let us know how you get on. Thanks.

I'm able to launch the game now, Hopefully it won't crash again. Thank you again for your patience and assistance.
