Can you be a bit more descriptive about whats happening?

Do you get any error messages?

What are you trying to do when the game crashes?

IT HAPPENS SOMETIMES WHEN I SAVE IT AND SOMETIMES WHEN IM JUST PLAYING! WILL IT BE ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE SAVE FILES, ROLLING SAVES OR SOMETHING? IT SAYS A CRASH DUMP AS BEEN ENTERED OR SOMETHING (FM 2009 v9.2.0.30301 (2009.01.02 18.08.01).dmp)

Is it happening at the same point every time?

Do you do a rolling save?

What are your computer specifications? What's in the dmp file?

Are you patched to 9.2.0?

[quote name='peter-evo']Why can't you play in windowed. Have you tried using the shortcut code?[/QUOTE]

Probably due to his window resolution.

[quote name='ahmufcwafc']Make sure you made no mistakes in adding that bit to the end of the target. It should read like this:
"C:\Program Files\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2009\fm.exe" -windowed -small_screen

Is that the exact target that you have? Also, are you using a PC or a Mac & did you activate with Steam or UniLoc?[/quote]

Failing that, get on the phone to Customer Services to get a run through of your computer spec.

This is probably no help but I had this problem on 08. If you click ok the game should minimize, click the icon at the bottom of your screen and hopefully it will continue.

Like I say it was 08 but I definitely had the out of bounds box pop up numeroes times.
