As a temporary fix, you can turn sounds off in your Preferences.

I'm getting a message that says: "Direct Sound error -2004287480" when entering a match.

[b]Potential workaround:[/b]

- Update your sound card drivers or disable in game sound.

- To disable sound:
- Go to the Preferences screen ('Options' -> 'Preferences').
- Go to the 'Display & Sound' section.
- In the 'Sound Settings' area, deselect 'Play Sounds' and confirm your changes.
- You should also ensure your DirectX is up to date.
- Install the Microsoft DirectX re-distributable package from here:
- Web Installer: [url]http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en[/url]
- Full re-distributable: [url]http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/d...displaylang=en[/url]
- Update the SoundDriver for your particular system (visit the system manufacturer website and check their support section on drivers for your particular system - See Useful Link below for common system websites)

Hello Jayyidthfc,

The solution to this problem is outlined on the very first post of the first page on this thread. It's a case of downloading a specific SDK I believe.

Hope this helps.

[B][COLOR=navy][FONT=Calibri]My computer will not read my DVD disc

[/FONT][/COLOR][/B]You can download the game in Steam without using the disc using the game code you have from your purchased game.

Download Steam from here - [URL]http://store.steampowered.com/about/[/URL]
Install Steam on your computer
Once installed, open up Steam
Go to My Games
Go to Activate a product on Steam
Enter your Activation Code found on the back of the manual. (Use [URL]http://keylookup.fm2009.softanchorinsight.com/[/URL] to see you got all the 0's and o's right)
Steam should now download your game.

[quote name='kaseychevez']My game crashes on 24th july 2009, it says a serios error occured and the game stopped responding, i have uploaded the crash dump file to your ftp server, please help! i feel like i've been mugged out of £30[/QUOTE]

Hey kaseychevez,

Apologies for the wait for any reply.

If you are still around to read this, can you confirm that you were running the Seria C in your game. If yes, I can confirm that this is a well-known crash that is currently being investigated for a fix. Unfortunately, the only current way to overcome this is to avoid including the Serie C in your game.

If, however, it's not, could you please share information on the leagues you were running to begin with.

Thanks.

[b]I can't play the game due to an XML parsing error[/b]

If you have a shortcut on your desktop you can do the following:

Right-click on the FM shortcut.
Choose "Properties" from the pop-up menu.
In the "Target" field, add the --reset_preferences command line option after "fm.exe", so it should look like this:
"C:\Program Files\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2009\fm.exe" --reset_preferences
Press OK and then try to run the game as normal, using the shortcut.

You'll want to remove the command after you run the game, as otherwise it will continue to reset your preferences every time you launch.

If you don't have a shortcut you can make one and then perform the instructions on the shortcut you've made.

If you purchased and installed the game through Steam you should be able to find the fm.exe in the following directory:
C:/Program Files/Steam/SteamApps/Common/Football Manager 2009/
If you purchased and installed the game from a boxed DVD copy you should be able to find the fm.exe in the following directory:
C:/Program Files/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2009/

You can download the latest driver from here - [url]http://www.s3graphics.com/en/products/unichrome/[/url]

However I would suggest your graphics card is unfortunately below the minimum recommend spec so you would require an upgrade. Sorry :(

Hey,

FM 09 is the first game in the series to have been released on DVD (and not CD). It seems as though you don't have a DVD drive, which is the reason why it was unable to read it.

Fortunately, there is a very feasible workaround. You'll simply need to download the game via Steam, and upon being asked to give in an activation key, you'll need to use the one provided on the back of your manual.

If you have any other problems, please do let us know.

Hope that clears the problem up for you.

[quote name='ben345346346']Hi, will FM 09 run if i only have a 64mb video card on my lap top? Graphics error occurs at the mo[/QUOTE]

Although a 64MB graphics card is below the minimum requirements, the v9.1 patch helped increased the graphics card compatibility pool. Thus, it enabled a considerable amount of players, if not all, with graphics card of a similar memory capacity to yours, who were experiencing problems before, to be able to run the game, albeit without the ability to watch matches in any of the 3D camera views. More and more investigating is being done around the clock to hopefully decrease compatibility issues even further.

If possible, could you please post your DXDIAG information in the meanwhile.

If you don't know how, then please follow the below instructions:

[QUOTE][B]How to get your Dxdiag information[/B]

Windows XP
1. Click on “Start”
2. Click on “Run”
3. In the text prompt box that appears type “dxdiag” and click ok.
4. Once the dxdiag program has finished scanning your machine click “Save All Information” save this to a place you will remember.
5. Copy and past these as/where needed.

Wndows Vista
1. Click on “Start”
2. Click inside the search box

Hi

I have now loaded game onto PC and onto Laptop - problems on both..

PC - upon loading I am told that upload was successful, but some elements are missing. I managed to go on and play the game. I then saved and closed. Restarting is impossible. - please help.

Laptop - Game loads. However, when going to the live match, the PC crashes. I have been onto preferences, and deselected 3D game - but it still crashes.

This is really outrageous, as I have played this game for years now, and never had such issues. Totally unacceptable.

Please advise.

Hi guys,

I've been dealing with Neil from Sports Interactive, who has been a big help thus far but unfortunately hasnt been on while I've been around, he has asked to me to provide my details of my Graphics Card (see below).

Intel(R) 82810E Graphics Controller

Will this be my graphics card? I found it in the Diagnostic tool data? If so, is it good enough for the game?

Also, I have discovered I only have 256MB of RAM (below spec), could this be contributing to my problem? (which is that I cannot load the game as FM.exe has encountered an error and needs to close)

I have downloaded the patch and done everything else that Neil has suggested so far.

Please advise!!!

I see that i am not alone, i am yet to read a solution to this, but there are 16 pages to read through and i may well of missed it, so if you can help please let me know.

You'll find numerous links to download it at [url]http://community.sigames.com/showthread.php?t=60961[/url] in the first post by Miles.

Installed the game, authenticated through steam and all was working fine. Only let me play for five minutes then says: fm.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close.

It then says:
The instruction at "0x7dcb3ea8" referenced memory at "0x7dcb3ea8". The memory could not be "read"

It then gives me the option to:
OK - to terminate program
Cancel - to rebug the problem (when i do this nothing happens)

Have you tried selecting 'Browse' to locate and select the WWSM exe yourself? The WWSM directory should have been installed by default (unless you selected the 'Advanced' install setting to customise where to install to) to C:\Program Files\Sports Interactive.

Also, have you made sure you've downloaded the WWSM 09 v9.1.0 patch and not the FM 09 equivalent by mistake?

Looking at your username, I'm going to take a punt and suggest that you have purchased Football Manager, and not Worldwide Soccer Manager?
