following a crash i am not able to open the game anymore, don't know why


Origin of the crash

I have skins associated to the game, never had issue with any of it, i decided to add a few more, following this as usual i unchecked load from cash and reloaded the theme.

Then i got the crash related to the uploaded file.

Now when i launch the game, it loads forever on the loading screen and nothing appends. I don't have any other crash dump because the game doesn't stop loading

What i tried :
 - i tried verifying game files integrity

- uninstall and re install

- update graphic card driver since i got a message not long ago in-game that told me drivers where not up to date anymore (GeForce GTX 960M)


None of those resolved the issue.

From what you've said the issue will be a compatibility one with the new skin and your machine, so can you please try removing the custom files from the Sports Interactive folder entirely.

Deleting your cache and preferences folder afterwords will then perform a soft reset of your game, let me know if that solution helps or not.

Thank's for your answer but it doesn't change anything.

Following what you've said i tried to remove my entire graphics folder and only have graphics/faces/default in. Didn't change anything either.

I noticed tho, in the log directory there are multiple weird things

the graphic config.txt file says

Couldn't find graphics config file!

looks a little alarming for me that the game doesn't load the graphic config file i don't know if it's supposed to be or not.


And i also have a MATCH_CRITICAL_ERROR_LOG.txt file that says


12:26:57:119/00:12.05 D 12180 Application: COMMENTARY_EVENT_HANDLER::read_config() - unable to parse xml file

Stack length: 5


I have no clue if this is supposed to be like that or not.

Neither your Intel or Nvidia drivers are showing as being any newer than the 2018 versions - can I get you to reinstall both from the links provided in this thread:

Hello again,

I've updated both drivers, deleted cache and preferences folders and nothing has changed.


Here's the new directX diagnostic if needed, i have not been proposed an intel driver newer than 30/04/2019 tho.

Can I get you to remove the Sports Interactive folder in its entirety please. (Its the latter half of the instructions in the thread below).

Make sure that you copy any save games to paste back over as the folders will generate empty when you boot up the game again.

I'm sorry I'm still on the trial-and-error stage, but given all the troubleshooting you've done already I'm running thin on options. 

The skin is the most obvious cause for this, but why it would still be causing issues after being deleted I can't say for sure.

Alright, it worked i don't know  why, because if copy back what i had in there, i still works. 

Thanks for helping me and good luck for the other tickets.
