I just installed the game and the 3.73 patch but I can't start a new game...says there's no enough memory! Already did the unmount but the the issue continues...any advice?

Tonton Zola Moukoko 2021-08-08 -2 points

Don't try and mount with the in-built Windows tool, this is what causes it to say corrupt. Download a standalone program.

Coward90 2021-07-21 1 point

Downloaded and opened the zip file. Tried to mount but says it is corrupted :(

wrzos 2020-11-02 1 point

@JD - had the same, worked when removed the mount.

JD 2020-08-23 2 points

Game says not enough memory, refuses to continue and saved games are lost. Works fine for a couple of months (in game). Any advice?

DIMI 2020-05-06 0 point

I think the patch works!!!! I am in September now and looks fine.....but let's not rush. I will come back later on.
Thank you anyway.

Sam Charpenter 2020-05-05 -1 point

@Dimi, sure I´ll do that, just in case, but let us know if the patch fixed your issue.

DIMI 2020-05-05 0 point

maybe your problem is already answered below. DO NOT select the Argentinean and Brazilian leagues (when asked) in the game settings and see if it works.
Mine is still there though, still crashes after 3 seasons in July 2002. (new game)
Doubt it that the patch will do any good but will give it a try, thnx.

Sam Charpenter 2020-05-05 -1 point

@Admin, But I´m a bit disappointed that no one fixed the unbelievable amount of injuries, and then red cards appears more frequently after winning streak, as if the AI is doing it to increase the difficulty, so you have to kind of anticipate that, especially if you like me is playing with a team like Coventry with slow defenders & def mid, it´s a hell of a challenge!

Sam Charpenter 2020-05-05 0 point

@Admin, the 3.71 & 3.72 is already in the 3.73 Patch, all included.

admin 2020-05-05 -2 points

Added the 3.73 patch, thanks. Could not find 3.71 or 3.72, hope they are not required.

Sam Charpenter 2020-05-04 1 point

Alan, Dimi, Estrella and all, I found a no-date patch to the game. I mailed to myabandonware with the zip file, hopefully they´ll upload it here.

ALAN SHEARER, yes I tried that, still can´t get past 1 November 1999, I have had no issues with memory or whatever, the shait file is corrupt or a demo, crashes always on that date, tried everything

Alan Shearer 2020-05-04 5 points

Lads, like. Any oot of memory errors could be due to not ronen' in compa'abili'y mode like. Alweys ron in Windooos 95/98 compa'abili'y mode, AND as administra'or like.

Sam Charpenter 2020-05-01 0 point

DIMI, my save wont go beyond November 1 1999, it just crashes, I´m considering buying the original game, it aint cheap, costs like €45 used copy. But it would be nice if someone has a solution, patch or whatever, no update nonesense, just a patch fix, I suspect this version they uploaded is the Demo version, which I remember, before getting the OG copy, which I then lost out of pure negligence, but one could make it a full game with some kind of cheat that allows you to continue on their Vanilla demo. Anyway, I digress, but seriously I really really want to beat this game, since I´m recording it your YouTube also...

Dimi 2020-04-26 2 points

Estrela, never had the problem you are describing.
The problem I had was about not being able to launch the game cause of "not sufficient memory" and I went over it through some kind of "compatibility test" (right click on the .exe file). Why don't you try it?
My problem now is that it crushes after 3 complete seasons. Tried everything (new save slot, uninstall and reinstall, different directory). Nothing, it doesn't go beyond 21 July 2002. I thought the file was corrupted, but same happened when I installed the game through another zip file (different download location). Any ideas on that?
Damn, and It was real fun after all these years.......

Estrela 2020-04-20 2 points

I managed to start one time right after instalation, played a little just to see if it works properly, everything ok, then saved and went to lunch... Now when I want to start the saved game says "insert cd"... Than what I did? Let´s start a new one and... "free some memory first".

So everytime I want to play I have to install it?

Whats wrong?

Anyone else with same problems?

Dimi 2020-04-18 0 point

Guys help,

I've downloaded the file and "mount" has gone just fine, game is installed (Windows 7).
However, when trying to start a new game I can't, a pop up message says I there is not enough system memory and I need to free up some. But this can't be true, there are not many procedures running in task manager and I am really low in CPU usage.
Any ideas why this is happening?

any way of making the brazilian league work?

alex7 2019-08-16 -1 point

Hi guys!
There is no need to download any patch in order to fix the october or january crash!
The problem is related to argentinian and brazilian leagues.The easy solution is this:
When the game asks you to select the leagues just select all of them except the argentinian and brazilian leagues and your problem is fixed!
No crash is going to happen again and if you receive during the game the message for upload problems just click ok and resume playing!

Same instruction method can be used for either cm99/00 and cm00/01 by using the game files from

if mod can delete my previous comment for install guide for cm99/00 as this video explains the procedure much better.

buffabill 2019-01-04 -1 point

ive downloaded it on windows and cant open it without burning it onto a disk is this the only way to play?

José Santos 2018-12-17 0 point

i love thi game

Alan Shearer 2018-09-04 3 points

I'll be quick Wes, as I'm about to start on Match of the Day!

Unzip the file; you should then have an ISO image (.iso file.)
Double click on that ISO image to 'mount' the virtual disk - Windows will treat it as through there were a real disk in the drive. Run setup.exe and off you go.

Championship Manager 01/02 is better though. Even that know-it-all Lineker thinks so!

wes 2018-08-31 2 points

I have downloaded and I cannot get it to work. Please help

Alan Shearer 2018-07-28 6 points

Brilliant game this, the second in the CM3 series. The best management sim by far though, to this day, is the final game in that series - Championship Manager 01/02. Me and Teddy Sheringham still like a network game of this. I'm always Newcastle & he's always Man U. Classic!
