Guys, do you know if Serbia and Montenegro First League doesn't exist in Football Manager 2005? This is a bug or what?

Game starts normally but when I want to create first game, it is always stuck on setting up a database. Anybody had this issue?

Try the forced windows size method.

Basically create a shortcut of the game's exe file, then add "-small_screen -windowed" in the "target" box then try to open the shortcut.


Maybe other can help. If I use the original 5.0.0 version it works fine, but if I updated to 5.0.5 I have the same issue. For now I use the original 5.0.0 to play, maybe you can try the same.

i don't see many solutions to the problems given on the comments. yet, I'll quote one as I have the same very problem and i would like some help, please!
" I have two shortcuts to the game. One states I need to sign on as administrator and try again (I am already administrator), the last one starts up, and I get the start up sound (cheering) but the screen stays blank. There is a cursor, but just a black screen. "

Hello! Everytime I close the game and reload it, all the scheduled league matches are gone and I can play only cup games. Does anyone have the same problem?

I've got the game working great, but on 8th June at the end of my first season, the game says it's "dangerously low on memory" and then that it has "run out of memory", and closes. It's a showstopping problem that I can't get past. I assume it's related to the fact that it's an old game running on a new machine and something is telling the game I have no memory, whereas in fact I have plenty. I've increased virtual memory, run in admin mode and tried compatibility for all older versions of Windows - no luck. I'm running one league (England) and am patched to 5.0.5. Does anyone have a solution? Thank you

NOCD isn't need, just the patch and fix. The installer has an option to switch to English language.

Can anyone help with getting this working (Windows 11)?

I've downloaded, plus installed the W10 fix, all patches and the No CD file. Now I have two shortcuts to the game. One states I need to sign on as administrator and try again (I am already administrator), the last one starts up, and I get the start up sound (cheering) but the screen stays blank. There is a cursor, but just a black screen.

First, you need to download Italian Spanish version
open the ISO image with proper software for virtual drive
Install the game
Install the patch Win 10 fix
Install the all patches first 5.02, 5.03 and 5.05
crack the game with the crack that came with the game
and run as administrator

it worked fine for me, and it's in English, german or whatever language that is on the patch

Hey lads.

download the english version above - navigate your way to preferences and then select english language -takes some trial and error as it's hard to work out the language but it works eventually
