Hello,

I have tried all fixes mentioned in the forum:

Clear cache

Removing and adding manager

removing leagues

taking vacation

Installing the game on different machines

 

Game keeps crashing on the specified date, first the sound of my machine cuts for a second or so and then game quits with a windows error. Is it possible to look in the save file and edit things to fix this issue?

I would upload the save file to the FTP, but I am getting "You dont have permission to visit this". If you require the save, please advice how to upload it.

Thank you,

Ivan Gergichanov

Please advise the full game version and the crash dump message.  Are you using a custom or edited database?

Hello FrazT,

I am playing on the latest steam version of the game, there are no custom databases, and there is no dump files generated in C:/Users/Ivan/My Documents/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2017

The game just exits without freezing or anything and the windows message that "The program has stopped working" pops up.

Hello,

I am using the standard install of the game in steam, no custom anything.

If you want to check the save please advise me where to upload it so you can download it, as I mentioned the FTP link in the forum gives me "no permission" message.

Best Regards,

Ivan G.

Only the SI staff have the tools to check a save game, so I cant help with this, I'm afraid

Hello,

Do you know if SI staff is known to take a look at broken save files?

If they will be willing to take a look is there some way for me to contact them?

If not do you know some external tools I can try to fix the issues at my own risk?

 

Best Regards,

Ivan

Whilst I can't speak for SI directly, they have not been in the habit of inspecting saves from older games.

Does your backup save pass the problem date?

No, the backup save also fails at the same spot.

Do you think anything can be done for the save currently?

What do you suggest for me to do to have the best chances to fix the save?

It sounds like there has been a file corruption and that save may well be lost, particularly if the backup save also crashes at the same point.  As a last resort, try using system restore ( or a previous computer backup ) on the computer and go back to a restore point before the crash and see if it will run from there

Sadly rolling back the specific machine the game was originally installed on is not possible at this moment. It is a real shame the save cannot be fixed, as I have been playing FM until before the 2000s and I spent a lot of time on FM17 with this save, Also a shame you cant use the save on FM18. I will see if it is worth it for me to continue with the series, if the games go out of support and break so early in their lifespan.

Anyways thank you for the support you have provided in this tread, if there is nothing else you can suggest, feel free to close this thread.

Best Regards,

Ivan Gergichanov

Do you not have a computer or file backup from before the tie m of this issue?- the saves are stored in your Documents folder so other saves should be available

Multiple save crashes on the same date would certainly point to a file corruption- have you tried a full reinstall of FM or at least a check of the file integrity in steam?

Yes I have reinstalled it on the original machine, and installed it on 3 other machines. I am using the same few saves for testing, so I assume its the actual save that is corrupted.
