Hi, i try to restore my save file but there is nowhere to be seen in the ''restore game'' option!

I use the odb style march update (without tapani) and it worked fine, until season 2011-12 :rolleyes:

I would like to figure out what is the problem...

Any idea ?

Thank you:)

what operating system are you using? sometimes on Vista or windows 7, it gets placed in a hidden folder.... if you go into the tutorials in the tech support sub-forum, you'll be able to see how to find the hidden folder.... that might solve your problem....

Your save file, will be in a secret folder called Compatability Files.

If u go to the normal CM01/02 folder, where ur saves normally are in ur Program files.
Above the main window, there is an option to look at compatibility files.
If u find ur save.
Right Click and then Copy or Cut...

Then press the back button, then paste into ur normal cm01/02 folder, it shud be available to be loaded..

Hello, i did find the hidden file in the appData (i use windows 7), but from there i don't know what to do...

Well, i copy and paste it in the championship manager file but the game did not ''recognised it'' :confused:

Then i tried the directory from the ''restore game'' option but i had the same results...

I think i miss something...

Fodster
22-03-12, 10:37 AM
yeh u did

wato20
22-03-12, 12:11 PM
Yes...

App Data is similar to the Compatibility files..

I know this isnt the exact image..

But when u are in your CM folder in program files..

So
C:/Program files/Championship manager 0102/

So you can see the cm0102.exe file.

Above the folders is the Compatability files bit.
click that and then move ur saved game file to the proper folder.
By Cutting it, pressing the back button and then paste.

and overwrite when it asks, or click yes to edit system details..

Here is an image of the compatibilty folder bit..

Hello, does anyone know why windows 7 create the problem with the save files :(

My save file is at the program/cm01-02 directory but the game in the ''restore game'' option do not show it :((

I did the trick with the hidden files but still no breakthrough...

I wonder if that will happen also if i start a new game...

Was looking at GK Save Game Editor and CM Explorer this morning.

Changed a value in CM Explorer but can now no longer look at the player in question on GK Editor.
Have changed it back to what it was in CM Explorer but still can't view the player on GK Editor.

It crashes the game as well. Can't continue on.

Anyone know what I can do to fix it?

Fodster
26-03-12, 12:10 PM
me finks u entered an incorrect property value. I would recommend never using two save game editors along side each other, did u make a back up?

ebfatz
26-03-12, 12:22 PM
No :tsk:

Wasn't even planning on making any changes.
Just seeing how the figures differed.
Silly idea.
Don't suppose a system restore would fix it would it?

Fodster
26-03-12, 12:23 PM
yeh, you could go back to just before u made the changes, should work!

Any message when the game crashes?

which part did u change?

ebfatz
26-03-12, 01:41 PM
Just cm0102 needs to close.

I changed a player's movement from 9 to 10 in CM Explorer. Just to see how much of a change it would give it in GK because that was showing a value of 227.

CM Explorer still works. I've changed it back to 9 but neither the game or GK are liking it anymore.

Hi everyone. Currently playing with the March 2012 update, but as my laptop has major overheating issues, it is prone to the occasional screen freeze. Unfortunately this happened while I was playing CM 01/02 last night, and having loaded it up again today, when I click on the game I was playing when the laptop froze in the "Restore Saved Game" area the message "Could not find information about save game" comes up. The save file has indeed disappeared from the saved game file (C:\Program Files\Championship Manager 01-02\[Saved game name].sav)- what is going on???

Please don't tell me that because my laptop froze while I was playing the game it somehow deleted the saved game off my laptop? Are there any files that my saved game may have disappeared to as a precautionary measure by my laptop to save whatever was running when it crashed? I really hope it is the latter!
I'll be quite distraught if I've lost this saved game... any help anyone can offer will be greatly appreciated! I refuse to believe that simply 'cos my laptop crashed it wiped out my saved game!

samoore
28-04-12, 03:31 PM
Also, apologies for posting this thrad without introducing myself etc- I've had an account on here for a while (I thought!) so I didn't think I needed to go through that formality, but clearly I must have set up a new one at some point. I'm confused myself!

Fodster
28-04-12, 04:09 PM
I'm confused...

... Think your save is gone though!

Try searching your comp for any .sav files :ok:

Patinoz
28-04-12, 04:14 PM
your laptop wouldnt just randomly delete saves usually.

last resort might be a system restore to before it happened.

samoore
28-04-12, 05:51 PM
Right, I've located the saved game file in the "Compatibility Files" section of C:\Program Files\Championship Manager 01-02\. Annoyed that it was hiding there. Anyway, I've moved that saved game into the proper folder where I normally load CM saved games from. However, the game still refuses to recognise its existence, saying the same old "Could not find information about save game" when I try to load it. Any more suggestions?

Patinoz
28-04-12, 05:53 PM
when you go to restore save game, check what path its checking in-game

samoore
28-04-12, 07:14 PM
That's the thing- I can't see any information about the saved game when I click the "info" apart from "Could not find information about save game". Yet the files are there, and are located in the normal directory.

samoore
28-04-12, 11:00 PM
This is the print screen of what comes up when I click on the game's info. When I try to load the game, it crashes CM half way through too.

Looks like your save game is corrupt.


my laptop has major overheating issues, it is prone to the occasional screen freeze

In other words your computer has a major hardware problem. There's no way Windows can handle that and any files being written to when it happens will be corrupt. You really need to get to the bottom of what's causing the overheating and then run a full check disk.

In future in Game Settings if you set "Save Safely" to "Yes", it creates a temporary copy every time you save instead of overwriting the original.

i have been playing Champman01/02 on my laptop and i think it has a virus so i need to format it, so i have some save games on it that i want to move to my other PC i have copyed the Championship 01 /02 folder that was in the program files, but when i load in champman there is no save games, so i do i transfer them to the pc i have tried to unhide the folder but still cannot not see them.


what do i need to do


i am using windows 7

Dermotron
02-05-12, 09:17 PM
The old laptop may have had C:\Program Files(x86)\Championship Manager 01-02 as the directory. You can change that by clicking where is says directory and adding the '(x86)' or deleting it where necessary.

I have problem with my save...

It just doesn't want to load, it does not give me any error, just keeps loading non stop....I checked game folder and I saw that "Injury file" just keeps raising over 4 GB, and it would rise even more if I just don't get tired of waiting.
I tried deleting the Injury file, but it doesn't help...

I bought another laptop in the mean time, and the same thing happens on the laptop too.

Unfortunately save is compressed so I cannot access save game with save editor...and now I don't know what to do.

I was in 2067 season I think XD


Do you maybe have any ideas?

you'd only played it for 87 hours..

So not much lost then..

just start again..


For future reference..
I sometimes save my games twice.
So i'll have one called..
AYTN

and AYTN back up


and that way if i delete one or it becomes corrupted or something, i have the save from the last time i played...

Hi everyone, I'm Adam and have just started playing CM 01/02 on my laptop again for the first time in a little while!! I'm doing really well with Nuneaton, I'm top of div 3 and have only lost once in 21 games!

However.... When I went to load the game this morning, there was nothing in the restore game option. I play the game in compatability mode and I read about how it might be in 'compatability files', but it wasn't - it was in the usual folder that saved games are kept. I was just wondering if anyone else had a similar problem or could help me solve this!

Thanks guys, appreciate all advice!!

Hi Guys

Firstly, I'm a new users and have looked through the other threads to find info on this but could not.
Secondly, apologies if this question has been asked and answered before but I am at my wits end!

I am an original user of Champ Man and have bought every version until it became FM.

01/02 is by far the most playable version IMHO.

I am currently at 2055 (I previously got to 2088), and now my saved game doesn't want to load. It spews our pop-up error codes relating to friendlies and other random stuff, then crashes the program.

New, and other saved games work.... just not my current one. I think it's corrupted.

Does anyone know of a way to 'un-corrupt' a saved game file?

I want this more than I wanted my first picture of Anastasios Skalidis!

Many thanks

just tried it - still nothing mate!

just looked at properties of both files (DTL save which DOES show in restore saved game and then my Challenge files which does NOT show)

Can't see any differences in the properties

When I cut both files over to Desktop it asks me to add Admin Permission to move the DTL file (but NOT the Challenge file)

Does that have anything to do with it?

Hi All,

1st Post...

Looked all over and can't find anything on this.

I have a game on my PC which has been updated using one of those data updates. Now I want to transfer it to my laptop. What steps do I need to take?

ie will the "Updated Saved Game" need the same updates/installation as the original on my PC, or will simply transferring the .sav file and applying it to the a new installation (without data updates) just work?

Dermotron
22-10-12, 10:47 AM
Once the database version is the same you shouldn't have any issue i.e. since you have an update you have the 3.9.68 patch installed so the new installation will require that patch too.

If you are using a Tapani patch you will need to install that too to avoid potential future crashes

nezbfc
22-10-12, 11:00 AM
thanks for that, i assumed that to be the case.....

Now I need to work out what I did on the PC, and hopefully the files I originally used are still knocking around in the recycle bin

Much appreciated

22-10-12, 01:18 PM
Thanks again.
Just gone through it all (Luckily I still had all the patches/updates etc in the recycle bin on my old pc).

Worked like a charm, and now on my laptop. Only issue I had was a quick test on saving the game once transferred, turns out I hadn't set the executable to "run as administrator", so everything ok... One happy chappy :-)

USA is not selected. I have Portugal with 2Division B and then on the Background I have Spain, England, France, Holland, Italy, Argentina, Brazil and Germany.

Thanks in advance for your help.

I used CM3Series Save Game Editor to try to correct database errors. After saving, It still tells me there are 53 duplicate ID's referenced in 9233 club.dat records. Can't seem to be able to fix that, as the editor can't save the File anymore, I don't know why.

Hmmm, August 1st crash used to be USA specific (only after season 1 though).

Can you check what competitions are due to be drawn or run on that day?

Ok, here's what i found.

Final of the Club World Championship of season 11\12 never happened, and no more tournaments happened since then. This seems to be common, as it happened in my last game (not in the same season, though) and nothing bad came of it.

As of 1 August, i found lots of sheduled stuff:

Champions League Second Phase qualifiers second leg.
Copa mercosur - Start of group stage
Brazilian cup (final, i think) - first leg
Brazilian champions cup - semi final second leg
Dutch Cup, start of group stage.

More Info:
Problem doesn't seem to be with Champions League. I can stop the processing after those games are done. So i guess we can eliminate that option. It crashes when processing something else which wasn't displayed on the processing bar, or was too fast and i couldn't read.

Both Brazilian Cup and Brazilian Champions cup are off shedulle, since they were suposed to end on 30th July. Brazilian Cup final should be first leg 30 Jun, second 4 July. And Brazil Champions cup should end on 30 July. I think. I don't know if that's important, matches are re-shedulled all the time.

Hi, I have a problem with saved games. I can play for a random length of time (in terms of seasons), but at some point when I return and reload my saved game I get an error message which only appears once with the words 'error' and 'hall of fame' and the game crashes to desktop.

When I restart CM and attempt to relaod the saved game, it paused for a while on the loading game data progress bar. Then the game appears to resume as normal, but on the news screen announcing 'Fifa nnounce transfer system change', irrespective of how many years after 2001 I've played until before hte game crashes. Hitting continue game causes the game to crash to desktop.

Even when this bug manifests, I am still able to play other saved games where the bug has not been triggered yet. I'm running windows 7. Anyone any suggestions?

You've played the save with a tapani patch applied and are now trying to play on a database without a tapani patch applied. If you apply the patch to the database you will see those errors disappear. I'm guessing it was Tapani Patch 2.19 you used

Yes I'm having the same problem as Zimmie, and am on Win7 also - all of a sudden with my GK CM3 editor. It has always worked previously but all of a sudden when I run as admin (which I've always done) it runs to allow me to pick my save file and then disappears never to return. It works to completion when I DON'T run as admin, but changes aren't saved to disk then. It's puzzling as I've used it tons of times without problem. I tried uninstalling it and re-installing it but encountered the same issue. Thought it could've been my save(s) so started a new game and still the same problem. It's truly bizaarre as I've used it for years....:confused:

I need a Save Game Editor to CM0102, that works...

Downloaded everything "new". Bought Mario Götze to Arsenal. Signed him on a 5 year contract, worth 2,75 million SEK per month. So far so good.

Then I took my first look at him as a Gunner (after the transfer), just to realize that his bad ass agent (or someone else) changed the contract after I signed it! Now he get's paid 16 million SEK per month! This brakes my wage budget, and will probably ruin me during the 58 months that's left on his contract.

I've tried CM Explorer. That Editor works with other stuff, but doesn't change Götzes contract. I even tried to make Götzes contract end, so I could either force him out, or resign him. But the editor doesn't change the contract.

I tried the Graeme Kelly editor, but it crashed when I tried to open Götze...

Is there any Save Game Editor that can change contract info?


Oh yeah... In the CM Explorer... I saved my save file within the CM Explorer. When I then open that file in the game, nothing has changed. When I open that file in the CM Explorer again, the Explorer shows me what I actually edited. How can CM Explorer and the game itself read my Save File different?


Please, help me out here!

Sometimes the GK Save Editor (available in the downloads section) can help..... there is a small check box on the bottom left of the screen right next to "Fog of War on?"... if you click that it will attempt to analyze and repair the save file.... it's a long shot once the save has already stopped working but I've managed to recover one once... what I try and do now is use that feature every few seasons or so in the hopes that it will fix any errors before they build up and kill my long term games

I know I have done it, since I remember doing it like 10 years ago, but I cant even remember which editor I used. I want to manage team and national team at the same time, with one manager. From the start of the game, so no waiting for national team manager to be sacked so I can take it over. I cant seem to be able to make it work with either GK editor, or CM Explorer.

What I normally do is Select my club, save the game and Increase all my Abilities to Max, then choose a player of the Nation I want to manage, click on the nation on his profile and Apply for Job that way, normally get the job within a week or two.

At first the game froze when it finished loading, but it didn't actually enter the saved game.
now it enters the saved game, but when i press continue the game freezes and i get a msg saying "The game has stopped working..."

I installed a SSD on my computer but i kept running the game from another hard disk(instead of installing it on the ssd too) and it worked fine. but suddenly it started giving me that error.
Maybe it has to do something with some edits i made in the saved game by using CMExplorer?

Hi

Apologies if have missed a similar thread but I was going through a my games, deleting them for space and I thought I had then switched to the Restore Game menu but accidentally deleted my current game :(

Is there anyway to restore it? Is it still on my computer somewhere?

Thanks

maybe... just maybe... if you are on a newer version of windows, you can use the "restore previous version" function on the folder your save game was in and you might be lucky enough to be able to find a copy.....

playing the game on win 7 without any updates. 3.9.60.

today i played the game and saved. afternoon i opened my game but when i press continue game the game crashes it says 'cm has stopped running'.

i can access my game with same game editor.

but whenever i try to continue game, go on holiday or clicking player staff search game crushes.

also i tried to resign and said continue game. this tame game gave this error:

player_stats cpp 4189 and crushed.

can this be solved?

Most save gem crashes can't be saved. Try opening a Save game editor and validating, then try again otherwise it's likely to be lost.

Hey there.

I've been playing this game for a long time, and I have been playing on the same 2 saves for a very long time.
When I today wanted to start a new save it crashes pretty during the "load" with the message - V3.9.68T Setup..cpp 1672.
Anyone knows how to solve this? Im playing on september 2012 data update afaik.
Edit: Sorry if this problem has been written about before, I read through some but couldn't find anything about it.

Thanks in advance

So i've download the game. Mounted it, installed it, updated it. Game time of several weeks and i'm second in the league with player negotiations ongoing and players scouted.

And then another piece of software kicks in, minimizes CM0102 and the screen res reverts to default. I close down that software but now when i try to resume CM the screen is black. I can see the mouse and it obviously recognises the page as it alternates between arrow and hand. Also when i go back to the game from the desktop there's a brief flash of the proper screen / CM page but then it's black.

I don't want to end the process and restart the game.


Any suggestions ?

As a workaround go to the Championship Manager folder and run piced.exe. Leave both open until you save and close the game as it will only go back to black screen

Barnes10
04-10-13, 09:57 PM
Not sure i understand this. Will opening piced help ?

I opened it and could see that screen but as soon as i ctrl+del back to desktop and then try one of the two CM icons in the taskbar ( one for the game, one for piced ) i either get a black screen for the game or a border / outline for piced.

What i did do was manage to get to the save screen where you input a filename ( i remembered where that was on the left so clicked at the lowest point where mouse arrow changed to hand.

Where about do i click " save " on the screen after that ??!!?!

Hmmm, on modern pc's you should play in Window Mode only tbh.

Hope someone else has a suggestion for you.

If you can change the color settings on your machine to 16bit it might fit it (since this is the issue in the 1st place). Google, "change to 16 bit color for xxxxx" where xxxx is either XP, Vista, Windows 7 or 8

Might be a solution in here http://www.champman0102.co.uk/showthread.php/1773-Screen-Resolution-Queries

What's the order after Game Options ? Add Manager.....then ?

Alan
04-10-13, 11:29 PM
Save Game
Add Manager
Manager Status
Game Settings
Selected Leagues
Hall of Fame
Game Credits
Web Sites
Restart Game
Exit Game

Probably best to try and hit the Exit Game option at the bottom, then drag the pointer across to the bottom right of the screen and click twice (Yes, and then OK to save the game)

Barnes10
04-10-13, 11:36 PM
Yes, i've hit Exit Game and when the screen flashed saw " Please Confirm ". Hit the lower right corner of the screen when the arrow changed to a hand and now when it flashes i can see " Enter File Name " and my save game file name. So bottom right again ?

This is a bit mad but it's the only way round it without restarting.

Then i'm going to change the settings.

Alan
04-10-13, 11:38 PM
Bottom right twice, not bottom left

Barnes10
04-10-13, 11:41 PM
Yeah, thanks. I edited the post. It's three times because i needed to confirm the overwrite. Then the pointer changed to a football and the game closed. When i checked my CM folder, the saved game had been modified seconds ago !!!

Thanks for the help.

the resolution of the PC is much higher than 800x600.
Like Derm said, playing in windowed is the best way to avoid this problem.

I've never had the patience to fumble in the dark, but have lost a few decent progressions on a save this way :D

hey guys prob not the correct place to post this but having trouble with the gk save games editor with the autum update, anyone know why when i change something and save it, it has no effect on the saved game at all, im sure im just doing something silly?

Mark
14-10-13, 03:29 PM
Do you have Windows 7? Maybe you need to enable compatibility on the GK Editor?

Craig Forrest
14-10-13, 10:08 PM
or make sure you run the editor as an admin.... I run all my tools and the game as admin and have no issues :ok:

It does not happen often, but now and then an error message is displayed which says that CM0101.exe has stopped working, it offers me the option of going online to find a solution to the problem, but I do not have internet access on the laptop I used to play the game.

I made sure of changing the compatibility settings to windows 98/XP as that is the most recent format listed on the back of the game's box (my laptop is Vista I think)

Any solutions or anyone experienced similar problems?

"Unable to write data to disk..... Debug Info: v3,9,68 setup..cpp 9090(load_game_data(): unable to unpack the temporary files) Championship mananger has been unable to write data to disk, reason for this could be (1) lack of disk space (2) file locked by system (3) bad sectors on disk being written to"

I played with Rangers second season, but as I played, my nephew activated Task Manager and clicked something. All icons on Windows were gone, and i Save the game, and end it, to restart the PC. I started the game again but the file/game crashed , cm0102 HAS STOPPED WORKIN. I clicked INFO on the file-Rangers, and this appeared - COUL NOT FIND INFORMATION ABOUT SAVE GAME.

Sorry about the thread, i am just emotionaly connected do the file :(
