Just to be absolutely sure (I've lost 3 games in 1 and a half days), there is absolutely no way of de-coorupting saves, right? I am massively annoyed.

If you get this message

"not well-formed invalid token at line 1 floating_league_table_state_changed xml"

Try this:

Delete the following folder:

XP: C:\Documents and Settings\[your username]\Application Data\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2010\settings

Vista\Windows7: C:\Users\[your username]\AppData\Roaming\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2010\settings

Once deleted restart your computer and try launching the game again.
jack that doesnt works...

Delete the settings folder located in:

XP: C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2011\settings

Vista: C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2011\settings

Sorry I'm not sure where it is located in Windows 7. You might also need to show hidden files to spot the settings folder.

Hi guys, I really need some input for my crashing FM 2010 save game (yeah I know its FM 2011 era but..)
I have played that save game until 2052 season, somehow during that season the game crash in the process of entering an international match against japan.. I reload so many times and still it crashes.. even though I retire as the national team manager..
every time it happens there is a new crash dump file in the folder..
please give some solutions..

What do I do if using Steam to load and get the error "XML parsing error" which says "no element found at line 268 of". This pops up twice but doesn't seem to be effecting the game loading or playability.

Windows Vista and Windows 7:
1. Click “Start”
2. Click your username on the start Menu
3. Click on “AppData” and then “Roaming”
4. Go into the “Sports Interactive” Folder
5. Delete the “Football Manager 2011” Folder.

Sure, And how should I do that when some other file which I canNOT find is blokking this????
You got to the app data folder, right?f you have administrative priviliges(e.g. logged as administrator you should right click the folder you go "propertties'-"security"-"advanced" and there you should see the blocking command in a list.It's eather "deny" for the whole folder overriding other permissions you have either the default "not allowed".Anyway you'll easily figure out what to remove and there you go.

One more thing i've just discovered.I manage 4 teams in 4 diferrent countries.I had them all play at the same date i played the 1-st 3 np.The last one just wouldn't want to initialize and no error message appeared-the game crashes totaly.I tried 3 more time-same score.So i went on to this thread read about the deleting settings folder, and on opening the Si interactive folder(thats in aplication data bla-bla) noticed i have tonns of info in this folder from the older9already uninstalled versions of the game).So i decided to go the easy way and firstly deleted the obviously unusefull data(FM09 and FM10).This was just enought as now my game load perfectly and i've been able to continue.
P.S. One thing i have to say is all the 4 games were agains weaker oposition and both times i had crushing scores in the 3 succesfuly finished games.Now i drew one of them and won another with a goal in 89-th minute :( So don't tell me the **** engine is not a cheater:)

I've tried deleting the 'Football Manager' file but still Fm crashes when I try to start a match, it ran fine for months and has only just started doing this. If anyone can help it'd be very much appreciated. My Error is '11.3.0f178533' and installed FM via Steam if that information helps with a response.
