Football Manager 2009 patch download details (was authentication and update)

1,684 posts in this topic

The authentication servers are now live for PC users.

We highly advise people to authenticate through the STEAM platform, as with STEAM installed you will get automatic updates, the first of which is already uploaded and ready to go via STEAM.

Updates for non-STEAM platforms, for those who choose to authenticate through Uniloc online, or via telephone, will be available in the next few hours, and links will be posted here. The torrent file will come next, followed by direct downloads, and this thread will be updated.

FM 2009 v9.1.0 PC Patch

If you wish to mirror the update, feel free, but please email the mirror information to blogs@sigames.com, NOT on this thread, so that we can verify and update this thread with that info.

For a changelist for the update, please go to http://community.sigames.com/showthread.php?t=60956

Please note that whilst the update will allow many people with below minimum spec machines / graphics cards who had problems with the demo to get the game up and running, some below-spec graphics cards may require the DirectX 9.0 SDK is installed to run the game. This can be downloaded from the following url: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=5493F76A-6D37-478D-BA17-28B1CCA4865A&displaylang=en

We have been unable to test this on every graphics card on the market as, well, we don't have all of them, but this should fix the problem for the majority of those with below spec machines. If we find some that are still not up and running, we will look into these issues in the coming weeks.

Please also note that for those who want to get the demo up and running on their below minimum spec machines before purchasing, we are still planning on releasing a compatability patch for the demo, and this will follow in the coming days. We do not have a firm date for this as yet.

IMPORTANT ACTIVATION INFORMATION

When activating your copy of the game. Zero's and O's are virtually identical in appearance on the code itself, so please be careful when you are typing them in.

If you need any help with this, please go to http://community.sigames.com/showthread.php?t=61131

For guidance, please check here for a visual of the font - http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3274/3028118710_f04d50ffdb.jpg

If you are still having trouble, I'm afraid it's a case of trial and error.

Apologies and hope you don't have too many Zero's (O's) in your code.

if it has a zero in the code and is not working try an "O" (letter) just in case? (or the other way round, obviously)

Would've made more sense to just have 0's and no O's ;)

Still, good to see that activation is ready so early. The SEGA announcement made it seem more like they'd be activated at around 10pm or 11pm.

Also, wish I ordered off Steam :( Instead, I went for the cheap option of The Hut and now probably won't get it until Monday. Bah.

Mac users - it has not been possible to get the Mac update through our and SEGA's QA department in time for release tonight. We still plan to release this at some point tomorrow (Friday), and will update when we have more information.

Well, that's a bit disappointing. Though not surprising considering it probably required testing by the same people who failed to notice the Mac right click bug I (and many others) found within like, 5 minutes of playing the game..

Guess I'll be playing it when I get home tomorrow.

Why does the counter still say that there's another 1 day and 2 hrs left to unlock? I'm from Malaysia and I bought it via Steam.

Still saying "unreleased" on Steam with no mention of a key code. I suppose the delay could be while Steam upload the patch. Also no mention on Steam of how to get the manual!

So I guess soonish Steam users will be able to play too ?

Since authentication for normal pc users has started it would only be fair to start for Steam buyers too ;)

How can people play it now? Mine stills says - 'pre-loaded, unreleased'. Where do you get the activation code from? Not really used steam much before so it all seems abit confusing!

I think it's because Steam is region coded. Maybe because the release seems staggered? As far as I know UK region gets unlocked at midnight, but Australians get it at 6 am (5 hours earlier), so we don't lose a day

thanks for that!

although...i dont have any zeros in my code! :D

(EDIT) I was mistaking a 1 for an I

sorted now!

I had an I followed by two 1's so I was able to just about notice the difference. It looks to me like the I is perfectly vertical and the 1's are slightly slanted. Not sure if it's just the way it's printed as a few of the other numbers look slightly wonky.

Good time for activation though, just as Hollyoaks has finished, booya! :D

What the hell is going on? My 0's and O's I have 2 and I tried all possibilities and it still says invalid. I like this new system but the serial printing is absolutely bull crap.

STEAM as a retailer have been a good retailer, and are sticking to the original release dates, as are most retail outlets. So at the time when STEAM are meant to be selling the game, they will be.

There is absolutely nothing that I can do about this as it's completely out of my hands, and I have been told that that decision will not be changed.
