I'm sure there are other people out there who have had there game
destroyed by Crash Dumps errors, sometimes screwing your save, sometimes
even preventing you from starting new games forcing you to re-install
only to come across the same problem later down the line.
So here is my 2 part guide to Crash Dumps, part 1 is how to set your
game up to minimize the chances of your game ever getting this error,
and part 2 is what to do to recover your save (If possible) and get your
game back to a working state if you had this error already. Part 1
pretty much lists all issues that cause Crash Dumps and to set your self
up to prevent it from happening.
Crash Dumps Prevention
There are certain things that increase your chances of getting an error, here is a list
1) FMRTE - Just dont go there, it screws your
data base up beyond repair, you will not be able to get your corrupt
save back if you have used this editor. Sometimes its been to known to
cause damage to your windows registry too, unless SI make an official in
game editor, using third party programs like this is all to risky stay
2) Size of Game - Even though I believe I have
found the solutions to 99% of crash dump issues, it does not change the
fact the game is not without major issues, the games coding causing
endless memory leaks that lead to Crash Dumps errors.
So what I'm saying is try to go easy on your database size, either slow
or at most medium size data base when starting a new game.
Also dont go crazy with the amount of leagues you select to be playable, if you have a good system 10 leagues at max.
If you must have lots of leagues and large data base I recommend you
have at least 6GB of DDR2 or DDR3 ram, if you have an older system DDR
ram will not cut it for crazy data base sizes.
3)Everything Up to Date ? - Make sure the following are up to date
+ Graphics Card Driver (Use manfactures site, sometimes windows will not find the most up to date driver)
+ Java - Make sure you have the latest Version
+Direct X - Latest Version your system is compatible with
4) General Settings in Game These are optional but I recommend you use these settings to prevent errors.
Uncheck the following boxes
+Use Skin Cache
+ Enable Data Collection (This is an important one, it will stop FM constantly building up the RAM useage and prevent Crash Dumps)
+ Play in Windowed Mode, Minimize, and Maximize Every Hour.
+ Disable sounds, and 3D cameras, the 3D sucks anyway text all the way.
+Play with Autosave weekly, 3 file rolling save for back ups, better safe than sorry.
+ Uncheck Threading, if you have a Dual Core processor, you do not need
this to be checked, it takes away a complication. However if you have
one processor with Threading technology keep it ticked, other wise the
game performance will be poor.
5) Your Hardware Before Playing FM
2010 you need to be confident your hardware is all fully working, so
you can rule that out if you need to trouble shoot in case you get the
Consider and do the following before installing the game
+Power Supply - Is it at a high enough Voltage for my Graphics card ?,
find out and upgrade power supply if need be, you should not be using a
Graphics card if your power supply is under the recommended amount, your
system will become very unstable, let alone Football Manager.
+Hard Drive Error Free, run Chkdsk, a windows tool to see if your hard drive has any errors.
To run chekdsk press the windows button and R, then in the run box type
in CMD, the in the black command box type in chkdsk and press enter.
You should have a report of no errors, or windows will fix errors
+ Faulty RAM - This was the culprit for me, run a program called
MEMTEST86, you need to download and Burn it to CD, restart your PC with
the CD in the drive and let it scan.
If you are error free all good, if not note which RAM slot is reporting errors, remove or replace that RAM.http://www.memtest86.com/
+Dust Bunnies - Your system would be unstable in general if you have
these, if it is a little unstable check the innards of your PC for
obvious dust, blow to free dust from sensitive areas.
If you ever get Blue Screen errors while browsing, gaming, multi
tasking, then Football Manager will certainly Crash Dump you ***.
Okay if you follow all these steps prior to installing your game you are very unlikely to get the crash dumps error again.
please rate me if this help you thanks...
