I have the same problem as everyone else..ive only just installed it and been at it for half an hour trying these code things...does anybody have any advice for how to get the game working? and when will it all be sorted??
"SEGA is aware that there have been some problems with the activation of Football Manager 2009 today. This has been due to a combination of issues relating to the printing of keycodes and the huge demand for the game," reads a SEGA statement.
"A solution is in place and is starting to clear the problem, we are confident that the issue will be solved today. The chances of successful authentication are increasing hourly. At this point consumers still experiencing difficulties are advised to leave a 10 minute gap between authentication attempts.
"SEGA apologises for the disappointment caused by the problems with activating the game and asks for Football Manager fans to remain patient," adds SEGA.
It's weird, i used Steam on my laptop and it didn't even bother with that Soft Anchor thing and is working fine, but when i try to install it onto my PC i'm having the same problem as everyone else. Maybe cos i'm doing it now on desktop and 11am on laptop? I'll list the problems with the game itself some other time at risk of sounding like a smug *******.
