Hi everyone,

I have a problem, i tried to add some new skins and player faces. After that when i try to start fm2009, i see a black screen where i used to see the load or new game menu. I tried to uninstall the game but i receive some java errors(java is up to date). After that i deleted it from registery and installed again, but i still have the same problem. (i also removed all the files from graphic folder)

what can i do to fix it? have you any idea?

Try running the game with the --reset_preferences command line option.

Sounds like one of the skins you had was a bit faulty and wasn't loading the graphics correctly.

  • Right-click on the FM shortcut.
  • Choose "Properties" from the pop-up menu.
  • In the "Target" field, add the --reset_preferences command line option after "fm.exe", so it should look like this:
    "C:\Program Files\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2009\fm.exe" --reset_preferences
  • Press OK and then try to run the game as normal, using the shortcut.
