Game Crashes after pre-match Team Talk or when going to a match

Disable 'show stadiums' in preferences and it might just work

    If the crash dumps are happening when going into 3D match, see if this helps:

    - Go to Preferences screen
    - Display & Sound tab
    - untick 'show stadiums'
    - hit Confirm

    If this doesn't work, we suggest turning all of 3D off and running in 2D to see whether this works.

    Whatever happens in your every day life, coming here should be an escape from it; so cheer up and talk FM :)

    I've done that already but it still either freezes before a game , takes me back to my desktop with invalid exe things or my screen just goes black and i have to shut down . It's been happening all the time . Anything else I can try because it's really frustrating , maybe watching in 2 D ( how would that be done ? ) or smaller databese (would I be able to do that without deleting my current game ? ) PLEASE HELP !

    'crack on' - bad choice of words right there.
    Have you seen the topic on XML errors?

    I've tried all of this and it doesn't work.

    Any other ideas please?

    The game is clearly useless without a fix to this. This is the third time I have started a "career" and had it ruined by these faults.

    This happened with me on FM10 and I realized it was because I didn't have the system requirements to run the game.

    I have been experiencing crashes after pre-match teamtalk. While turning 3d off and running it in 2d helps, I would still like to use the 3d mode.

    I tried running FM with my integrated graphics card instead of my regular Geforce which did allow me to use 3d mode in the beginning but then the game kept crashing at more random moments during matches.

    I was also considering that it might be the fault of the database being too large but I am only running 6 leagues in 5 countries (large database) on i7 2730QM (2.0 Ghz) and 8 GB ram which should be more than fine (shouldnt it?).

    My graphic card drivers are up to date.

    I installed the MSXML 4.0 Service Pack 2.0

    I have also completed full uninstallation (including removing registry entries) or deleting the settings.

    Anyone got a clue what could be an issue? I would truly appreciate some help.

    EDIT: Also - this has only become an issue recently and I have been playing for months (in real life) and 10 years in the game - which perhaps suggests that the database became too big but I used to run it on 4gb and I upgraded the ram to 8 after first issues occured.

    I have the same problem the last 3 months.
    I play the first match normally, but when i start the second it freezes after the teamtalk or it crushes during the match (runtime error).
    Writing to Miles Jacobson in twitter about this problem, he told me that it's not game's problem, but possible incompatibility of the added themes or pictures of players or stadiums. Maybe it is so, but i don't think that so many thousands of players who use fmscout or sortitutsi or fmgreece for themes or facepacks have the same problem...
    Anyway, i hope fm13 (which i will buy again!) will have this problem fixed.
    Thank you!
