Who has the game and it's working fine?

25 posts in this topic

It seems that almost all of the people on this forum are having issues with their copy of football manager 2009. I on the other hand have experienced absolutely no problems installing/downloading or activating it. It might be because I did it with steam, but I'm very happy with how easy and smoothly it all went. Who else has got it working fine? Either using steam or not.

Mine's working fine, it seems. Even the freeze I got with the demo is now gone.

The reason most people are complaining is simple: the ones who have no problems are sleeping or playing. Same as every year at this time :)

Me :)

Admittedly I had to download a .net framework and then use Miles' solution to the serial problem, but it's now running nicely on my machine.

Im up and running using Steam. Which i think is a great idea, dont have to worry about waiting ofr the patch, updates automatically. So you'll always be up-to-date.

That depends on what the error is. Take a look through the Bugs forum. I found a solution to my problem within 10 seconds and got it sorted in 2 minutes.

I had no problems at all. Playing the game right now and enjoying it so far.

Mine is working fine. Had to type my activation key in a second time as the first time I did a o instead of a 0 but apart from that no problems.

Authenticated fine (minor 0_o issues) started it and it crashed. Patched it and it's gotten to nearly the end of setting up a game with absolutely everything loaded (fake players though).

It's slightly faster than FM08 with everything running, it finisherd while I was typing this so had to play for a little before posting :p

I liked the way Steam worked, after reading about people struggling to type the code in etc, no code with Steam. Patch downloaded and installed automatically, launched the game. Activation must have been automatic because I didn't need to do anything. Even my FM08 facepacks and logos work!

well mine is sayin graphics setup error wich is pure bollox!!!

the demo worked perfectly on this same computer, I used steam to install so i have the update on, and i tried to install the graphics fix as recommended and it told me i already had it so basically its just a complete joke.

As sigames have turned out to be, worked me arse off for them all summer giving them files for there database for barrow and for what??? them to bring out a shoddy game that doesnt even work properly.
