Football Manager 2017 has given the FM community something to talk about yet again. New staff additions. In this post we discuss the addition of the Chief Data Analyst/Data Analyst. Find out what they do as well as a suggestion for what attributes to look for when hiring your own.
Ever wanted to know how to fix your potentially corrupted FM save, follow this guide that could fix your corrupted save, if it doesn't fix, then follow the other guide to avoid your FM save from getting corrupted.
You're in your 6th season with Coventry City finally got them back to the Premiership and your save corrupts.
All your hard work down the drain.
No one likes it when their save corrupts, but I have a few methods that you can use to save your save or prevent your save from getting corrupted.
Method 1 (Previous Version)
- Locate the following folder
Documents >> Sports Interactive >> Football Manager 2016 >> games
- Right click on the save that is corrupt:
For Windows Vista and Windows 7 select 'Restore previous versions'
For Windows 8 or Windows 10 select 'history'
- If there is a previous versions then select the most recent restore option
- Open FM and see if the restored save file fixes your corrupt save
- If this does not fix the corrupted save them unfortunately your save has been completely lost :(
In order to avoid worrying about a corrupt save I recommend applying auto save to your FM save.
To apply auto save follow the below guide:
- On the FM menu select 'preferences'
- Enable auto save by making sure the auto save option is ticked
You can select to auto save your game every: day, week, fortnight, month, three month, year, five years.
I would recommend at a minimum you auto save every month, however I auto save ever week.
As you'll be able to see in this picture below, I have a lot of auto saves. This is because I have the 'new file for every auto save selected in option 'Auto save type'
When you have auto save selected the chances of saving your corrupted save increase, though you may end up going back a few days on your save, your save will still be working.

Following my post about the Football Manager Cache folder I have another guide that could solve problems when running Football Manager. This guide is for more serious issues and should only be used when suggested by people with serious knowledge of FM, asking one of the Admin's of page on FB or here is best to confirm you are doing the correct thing.
Sometimes Football Manager doesn’t run how you want it to run, problems can occur that stop you from seeing any graphics that you’ve added to the game; when this happen it is best to locate the Cache folder, this folder is only needed for troubleshooting and fixing most problems with football manager.
Also in the folder containing Cache is the Setting folder, deleting this folder resets your managerial profile on Football Manager, this is sometimes required when minor problems occur with Football Manager.
Depending what device you are using and the graphical software you have on that device, you may need to change from Software renderding to GPU or the other way round. For those of you that do not understand the above, please follow this short guide on how to do so
Looking for a reason to manage a side, how about their stadium, maybe you want to pick a club with a huge ground and the ability to make a fortune in season tickets. Maybe you want the challenge of limited income, forcing you to sell and work hard to make some money.
Wanting to spend the cash, do you have plans to sign superstars back to the Premier League like Gareth Bale or Cristiano Ronaldo? Maybe you want to challenge yourself and go with the small guy, the club that looks to sign someone on a free more than spending the mega millions...
