What happens when you try to use the 3D view? Do you get an error? Does it look all black?....

The 3D match engine is dogshit anyway. I couldn't point out one single thing good about it at all.

I am now using 2D. Basically should have just stuck with FM08.

SI should be ashamed.

Does anyone know how the 3d match engine is activated? My first match started in 2d and i cannnot work out how to change it to 3d. Is it an option that needs to be ticked?

Its on the match screen, near the bottom. Select the view to 3D rather than classic 2D mate :).

The 3d option is not available on the match screen. I also tried it in the games options screen - still not available.

Are you playing FM 08 by mistake, they are very similar.

I think it's more of a dig at SI rather than asw1505

I had problems with mine freezing while loading the 3d engine when playing pre season friendlies, when I got to the first game of the season I tired it and it froze first two times, but then has worked perfectly ever since the 3rd attempt. I never changed a thing!

No Java has nothing to do with the 3D.

Try updating your graphics card driver.

On the FM Preferences > Display & Sound just change the 3D quality.

sean is right, i had exactly the same problem, i had recently formatted my computer and hadn't updated the drivers for my graphics card, once i did this 3d worked fine... although i still watch it in 2d because 3d is disappointing.
