Going 'Offline' is the only other suggestion I have mate. I downloaded FM via steam so I always have it on. Hopefully someone else on here knows what to do

Do you mean whenever you want to play FM, you have to log into Steam?

I also bought a disk version, I just click to the FM2012 desktop icon and that's it.

Fm will be installed into your Steam directory. So to change where you install FM you need to move your Steam directory. It's very easy to do, just follow these steps...

  1. Log out and exit Steam
  2. Navigate to the folder where Steam is installed (by default: C:\Program Files\Steam\)
  3. Delete all of the files and folders except the SteamApps folder and Steam.exe
  4. Cut and paste your Steam folder to the new location, for example: D:\Games\Steam\
  5. Launch Steam
  6. Steam will briefly update and then you will be ready to play
  7. All future game content will be downloaded to the new folder D:\Games\Steam\Steamapps\


Warning:
It is highly recommended that you create a backup of your SteamApps folder before attempting this process. Neglecting to do so may result in a loss of all of your game content should something go wrong.
