After downloading the game and going to the "Setup" 59kb, The game loads to 99% immidiately, but nothing happens thereafter. I have also tried the troubleshooting and run the game in windows 98, but loading still goes to 99% and then the game shuts down. Any help?

I have downloaded the files and go into "eng" where I find the "footballmanager" application. However when I try to run it, nothing happends. I have even tried to run and "troubleshoot compatibilty" but even after that -- nothing happens. Any idea what to do?

How to run 'editor'?

jimjam 2023-05-02 1 point

I go through the steps above. When I test compatibility a message comes up saying 'do you want to make changes to PC' which I accept. At which point nothing happens. Doesn't seem to do anything this file.

This is BS. The download is corrupted. I tried using a virtual machine with XP still it wont run. Please update the link along with the language (it is not in English)

METAXAMOTO 2022-09-22 -1 point

For the game to play, you have to right click the .exe icon , choose "troubleshoot compatibility" and then "try recommended settings". Now press "Test the programm" and the game will work that way. But remember everytime you want to run it again, you have to follow the same procedure.
Hope i helped;)

The easy way to fix the Russian language error, is to delete the folder (rus), and duplicate the (eng) folder and rename the copy (rus).

PattyM 2020-04-11 0 point

I am trying to install the game but am getting component move data error -113 during set up process. Does anyone know why/potential fixes?


YYYDON 2020-03-28 1 point

Further to my comment below, it appears that the game is not compatible (as 32-bit) with more recent windows OS (as 64-bit).

If you have an OS which is 32-bit this may work for you. If not, consider installing a secondary OS through portioning your hard drive.

yyydon 2020-03-28 0 point

I can download the file fine. However, upon trying to open the set-up it does not do anything!

Has anyone experienced this? How do you actually download the game and play, step-by-step lol?

Visar 2020-03-16 0 point

Can someone tell me why is not opening the manager after I install everything is not working?

As far as the English set up works, the guidance below works. Anyone know how to get the editor working?

Rushden & Diamonds European Champions 2015 (aka th 2020-02-08 2 points

Hi all, I might be able to help... I'm getting the same problem as you all with the game being in Russian. If you only want to figure out how to get it to work, skip to the third section, lol.

I did a little digging. There's a SETUP.INI file included in the download which is a configuration file for the setup. Open it with Notepad and it'll tell you 'EnableLangDlg=Y', which means the setup SHOULD prompt you on which language you want to install with. The problem was that I didn't notice this because the setup process wasn't in English but in Question marks (so I presume in Cyrillic/Russian, and my PC couldn't display it?) Like, instead of words, it just displays "???????? ?????? ??? ????????? ? ??????" etc. etc. SO I didn't notice when I was prompted. But it's there.

To set the game up in English, get to the second page of the setup process. There should be two choices in a table, each of which can be highlighted: one that looks like "Aieeeneay aadney, 600 la" on top and one that looks like "Donneay aadney, 600 la" on the bottom. The TOP option is English ("Aiaeeeneay"). Bumble your way through the rest of the setup and you should be OK. I did, opened the game, and it's in English.

This MIGHT not work for you because your PC might show the Question marks differently.

In install set up for English click the B's as it is automatically on A's which is in Russian. It is that easy.

Dammag 2020-01-13 1 point

So no way to get this in English? I tried every tip here, and could not get it to change from the Russian version. Any other ideas or exact guidelines to change to English?

How to change from Russ?
Nothing above do the trick..

Beem 2019-04-21 -1 point

Since there is no folder called "Install" I'm trying to copy the English folder to all different Setup folders. The folders respond immediately, by opening the game in Russian anyway!!!
There is probably something simple I am not seeing, but is there any way to change the settings to Russian? What I'm reading here doesn't work!

Trivapov 2019-03-07 -2 points

Copy the folders located in the (eng) folder to your install folder (say yes to replace). Then the game switches from russian to english :)
