If you installed the FM2012 Editor before installing FM2012 please uninstall the editor and re-install. Hopefully this will fix any issue.

If you are having one of the following issues:

- When Loading Editor get error “Editor has stopped working”
- When loading the editor nothing happens
- The Editor crashes on launch
- You get Font errors on launching the editor
- Get error “"You can't open the application Editor because it is not supported on this type of Mac"

Please try steps below to fix your issue:

Step 1


Delete your cache and reload the editor.

How do I delete my Cache files?

The go to the 'View' tab and select 'Show hidden files and folders'

Windows Vista and Windows 7:
My Computer
'Organize'
'Folder and Search Options'.
The go to the 'View' tab and select 'Show hidden files and folders'

Once this is done, follow the instructions below:

Windows XP:
1. Open “My Computer”
2. Navigate to : “Documents and Settings\<Username>\Application Data\
3. Go into the “Sports Interactive” Folder.
4. Go to the “Editor 2012” Folder.
5. Delete the 'cache' Folder found inside here.

Windows Vista and Windows 7:
1. Click “Start”
2. Click your username on the start Menu
3. Click on “AppData” and then “Roaming”
4. Go into the “Sports Interactive” Folder
5. Go to the “Editor 2012” Folder.
6. Delete the 'cache' Folder found inside here.

MAC

Deleting your Cache on a Mac

Remove from Caches following the instructions below:

- Go to Finder
- Go to Macintosh HD
- Go to Users
- Go to your home (Shape of a house) folder

Step 2 (if needed)


If the above did not work can you try deleting your cache, uninstalling FM2012 Editor, restarting your computer and then re-installing the Editor.

Get the Message "Warning: did not find font resource: fonts/helveticaneueots on game launch

It relates to the "skin cache" file called fm2012.skc.

You can delete the preferences and cache from the library folder,
Steam does write to these foldesr.
However they are hidden if you are using OSX Lion -
you have to make it show by opening the terminal and typing the following

chflags nohidden ~/Library/

This will allow you to see your library and delete the caches. However the simple way around is to disable the "use skin cache" tick box in the preferences panel - this has completely resolved my problem. "

Go to: C:\Documents and Settings\[YourName]\Application Data\Sports Interactive

then use the search funtion(the magnifing glass icon) to look for fm2012.skc inside the folder, when you find it, delete it. You have to do this everytime you need to use the editor. If there are more than one fm2012.skc file, delete all of them.
