Accessing saved edit files to play game

Post by HaroldFinch »

The game will load whatever data is stored in "Championship Manager 01-02/Data", so you'd have to rename your "Data" folder to something else (e.g. "Backup" or "Original") and then rename your "Changes" folder to "Data".

Thanks for that. While I think on, would I be able to select which "Data" the game loads up, or does it do it automatically? Ideally, I'd like to have the original database there in case it all goes tits up.

There's no way to select which database in this way. You could have separate installations of CM for your custom databases and a separate one for the original database. Or you could try out the Starter Kit which allows you to switch much more easily.

Issues With Patches & Updates

Post by 666Swedish666 »

Hi guys,

Random question, whenever I install updates/patches I always end up with the same issue.

I am able to play the game, but after I have loaded the game up three or four times, it'll no longer load, so I reinstall Championship Manager 01-02 but still no joy. I can edit any of the updates/patches I wish to use, but when I begin my career, at the point of selecting a team to manage, it is the same annoying result

If I load up October 2021 & choose to manage Manchester United, I should have players like David De Gea - Raphael Varane - Jadon Sancho, but I am still stuck with the original data with players such as Fabien Barthez - Laurent Blanc - Roy Keane.

I follow all the instructions one by one, but I always get the same issue, Championship Manager 01-02 has always been my favourite, but because of this continuous issue, it seems pointless starting new careers.

There has got to be a way round this, surely ?.

Any ideas welcome ?.

Cheers guys....

Odds on that you are not running everything in admin mode.

You can check. look to see if you have a folder named something like Users/User/AppData/Local/VirtualStore if there is a Championship Manager folder in there then you have not been running as administrator.

thats why the starter kit does what it says on the tin.
Having multiple installs and folders with CM data seems to confuse the game config.
I'd uninstall, delate all folders related to data updates and use the starter kit to seemlessly switch between databases

Ensure you have copied the data files over correctly (should prompt you to overwrite approx 65+ instaces) and also ensure you are running game as administrator

Just follow this

"Install Game - https://www.champman0102.net/viewtopic.php?f=76&t=35

Install 3.9.68 patch (removes bugs from original game) - https://www.champman0102.net/viewtopic.php?f=72&t=264

Apply April 2022 Data update - https://www.champman0102.net/viewtopic.php?f=73&t=3941

Then feel free to add any other patches like Nick's which give updated transfer windows, updated competition names, coloured attributes, modern finances etc - https://www.champman0102.net/viewtopic.php?p=9241#p9241

You say you've followed the instructions, but you must have missed something out for it to be showing the original players. Follow them very closely!

Q: I get this error in the game: “v.3.9.68 index..cpp 5809”?
A: The database does not match the executable, it is likely that some files were missing when you downloaded a database, or you are trying to use a database with a patch already applied.

Start from scratch and reinstall a clean game!
