Football Manager 2018 On Load I can't click on anything

Recommended Posts

Hi,

When the game has loaded up,

I can't select anything at all.

I can't even close the game properly as I can't click on anything.

I've tried keyboard shortcuts too.

 

I've got a computer that is more than able to cope with the game and has been running on a average level (ignoring some bugs you have).

 

I've tried deleting caches folder, reinstalling the game and going in a windowed game experience.

 

Not sure what else I can do.

 

Thanks,

David.

What resolution is your system currently set to? 

Have you tried reading and following everything listed in this FAQ post below? 

If that doesn't work, it may be worth trying the following:

- Open Steam and access your Games Library
- Right-click on Football Manager 2018 -> Properties -> General -> Set Launch Options
- Type this in the box: -small_screen -windowed
- Click on OK, close the window and launch FM18 through Steam

Let us know how you get on. Thanks.

Just to point out I had this exact issue earlier, I fixed it by restarting my machine.

 

When I reopened Steam it did a small update. I also hadn't actually restarted in a few days and had updated my graphics drivers. Not sure what it was that actually fixed it but it's now up and running.

As I have already informed you of what I had done in my support request of all the things, I thought I'd give the benefit of the doubt and try again the steps.

Still to no avail.

Not sure what else I can do.

I've done that it's the first thing I run when logged on.

 

My resolution is 1920 x1080

 

I still have no idea,

 

Thanks,

David.

To confirm you also tried the following yes? 

- Open Steam and access your Games Library
- Right-click on Football Manager 2018 -> Properties -> General -> Set Launch Options
- Type this in the box: -small_screen -windowed
- Click on OK, close the window and launch FM18 through Steam

If you did, what happened when you launched? 

Let us know how you get on. Thanks.

I can confirm I have done this.

 

When I launched it did the generally load to main screen, but once there It wasn't responding to any clicks whatsoever, couldn't even close the program in windowed mode (without using task manager).

This means I can't play the game at all.

 

Thanks,

David.

Hi Neil,

Thanks for all your help, I've no idea, what's happened, but seems to be working now.

 

I'll update this, if there are any problems of this nature again.

 

Just would like to say a Thank you after probably the most advertised and buggiest version of the game I've seen and you your team trying to plug away and hold it together.

 

Stay safe over the next couple of days with the snow and all.

 

Thanks again,

David.
