I've been playing FM fine on steam for a number of years, all of a sudden the other day when I come to play FM and click the icon it says 'could not connect to the steam network'.
It is not an issue with my internet as I'm using that for other things.
Any ideas what i should do, and can i say goodbye to all my saved data

I'm on a Mac, and can easily open Steam. However, when I click to play FM12 it just states "Preparing to Launch Football Manager 2012" but nothing really happens? I'm from Denmark, but currently living in London and haven't brought my copy of the game. So I cannot re-install it

Apologies if this has already been mentioned,

Just bought FM12 on Steam and looking to download facepacks, Logos ect...

If I download these files, where do I save them to on my Computer? On prior versions of game I used to just save it within my Football Manager Folder. With Steam, I don't actually seem to have this folder.

Steam support flat out sucks

I sent an email three days ago asking for help regarding issues i have been having that have not been fixed by following the suggestions on the steam website. Three days, to me is a ridiculous amount of time to have to wait for a reply.

I posted in the other crash dump thread here and got no reply either. Since then i have tried just about everything i could find online to try to rid me of the issues but they still persist. I had my doubts about buying this game mainly because i didn't like fm 11 but i never expected to dislike fm 12 because i cannot get the thing to play as it should.

Update Steam

I'm on a Mac, and can easily open Steam. However, when I click to play FM12 it just states "Preparing to Launch Football Manager 2012" but nothing really happens? I'm from Denmark, but currently living in London and haven't brought my copy of the game. So I cannot re-install it
Hi!

I had the same problem. I tried everything that this thread has said. Re-installed the game and it didn´t help until I went to install Steam again. My Mac asked if I wanted to replace this intallation and I did. After the Steam installed it right away started to update Steam. Check updates didn´t do this.

So only thing worked for me was replacing Steam in the Application folder and after installing and updating Steam i managed to start playing again.

Hope this will help all of you and helps coding better Steam program also!

Yet im on a PC and having the same issue...

I was playing FM12 last night when my laptop ran out of juice with the game running. It was late anyways so I just left it and went to bed seeing as I had basically saved the game a few minutes earlier. During that time, I was playing in offline mode. Now, I am at school where they have blocked Steam's internet connection. Fine, I thought. I'll just get it in offline mode and we'll all be good. Nope! Whenever I try to run the game, Steam says "Football Manager 12 Starting" for about one second and then disappears. Of course, FM12 never does run. Any idea on what to do?

Yeah, tried this and it seems to work. But it would be better if it would just work every time. A bit demanding maybe:)

Football Manager 2012 is running again on Macs. Although there is now an issue where Steam is using around 200% CPU.

Go to your Steam folder and delete everything except for your steamapps folder and Steam.exe.
