Load Last Game ('No game available')

Recommended Posts

 

I have recently bought a brand new Macbook Pro. I installed steam and it seemed to detect I was on a new machine and re found my Football Manager 2016 game for me.

Loading up steam it's there the same as it always was - with all the hours I've played, last played and most recent achievements unlocked etc.

Clicking 'PLAY' loads the game up very smoothly but at the start page I get

Load Last Game ('No game available') which is greyed out.

When I go to click 'Load Game' there doesn't seem to be anything to load.

---

Is this a simple case of just finding the game file?

I am using a brand new Macbook pro running macOS Sierra 10.12.6

Any help much appreciated on this

Steam doesnt hold the save game files as they would be stored on the computer- you will need to find it on your previous machine, save it onto a usb stick then browse to it from there

Only thing in Sports Interactive -> Football Manager 2016 -> games folder is 'config.xml' is that what I'm supposed to be looking for or an actual file with the game's title in?

In that folder there should be the save game with whatever name you called it.  If there is no save game in there, then the save is gone for whatever reason, but bear in mind that the save cannot be deleted without user input.

Solved it. It was because I have many different folders called Sports Interactive for some reason.

I ended up dragging two folders with this name over from my old machine.

It was in 'games' of the second folder.

Can someone explain to me the difference between these two folders and if it's normal to have both called the same.

 

Somehow I managed to end up with 8 different folders called "Sports Interactive". I don't know how this has happened.

Glad you have found it- I am not an expert on Macs, so cant really give you any further info on the multiple folders.
