    Hello

    I'm playing April 17 Update with 800x600 Win10 Home.
    I was playing perfectly well untill today.
    Now, when i'm on a match and have a inj/red card/sub, i can't simply drag any players from position or even to substitute and that's really, really annoying.
    I've tried the full mode and seems to work normally, so i supposed is something with the resolution.
    Thanks

    Windowed Made- Fail

    When I try to put cm in windowed mode i get this message:


    Unable to initialise the graphics in windoed mode - please ensure that Direct X has been installed correctøy and that your desktop is in at least 800x600 pixel resolution and is in 16 bit color.



    My screen resolution is higher than 800x600, Im running cm in 16 bit color. This is a new computer (windows 10) so i guess direct x should be ok.


    Could anyone please help me?

    Are there any geniuses that could make a patch just to make the screen 1280 x 800 without changing anything else in the game?

    Black Screen

    My game has started to hang when loading up. It displays a black screen and says not responding in the title bar at the top. This has started doing this towards the end of the second season and up until now the game loaded fine. I havent changed anything either as it literally worked up until I went on holiday and came back to it taking aaaages to load t the main menu. It used to do this before but I re-installed the game and it worked great.

    Does anybody know what is casuing this? I dont want to have to re-install the game every other season.

    Black Screen

    Running as admin and have compatability enabled?

    Also - what year did you start in and are you playing April '17 data? If so, any Tapani or Saturn patch?

    yes, run as admin and compatibility enabled. I am using the Tapani patch with the latest April update applied. It worked fine for almost 2 seasons then it started this again. Nothing changed during that time for it to start taking so long to load

    You can patch the game with Tapani or Saturn and these give you options to increase the resolution.

    Hey, windows has just done a massive update to my laptop and now I can't even launch the game!!?

    I've never had this problem before.
    I've uninstalled and reinstalled it several times... nothing.
    I've rebooted the laptop to go back to earlier version of Windows.... and still nothing! !?

    Installed Direct X again... nothing.

    I'm at a loss, I don't usually have tech issues ever when dealing with the game but this one has me stumped.

    The error message I get is
    "Unable to initialise the graphics in full screen mode - please ensure that Direct X has been installed correctly and your graphics adaptor supports 800 x 600 pixel resolution in 16 bit colour"

    The patch I am using is in 1280 x 800 and that message came up.
    So I uninstalled and reinstalled and attempted to run game in original mode and it gets me as far aso the beginning start screen but the moment I click on 'Game Settings' to get in in windowed mode, the game just crashes!?

    What's going on?

    Thanks

    Eddie, i haven't got a solution but I have similar problems, although the game is working. Post update (which took 2 hours!!!) the resolution of CM is stretched in full screen mode. I'm no expert but perhaps Microsoft have stopped supporting older screen resolutions? I will look into it over the weekend and see if I can fix my own problem. I know that isn't immediately helpful but it might help you identify what's going on.

    I had longer mess around with the resolution and it has me stumped too. Even changing my resolution to 800x600 manually still results in a slightly stretched screen. I did manage to get windowed mode working which you may want to try but I found it too small so am persevering with full screen.

    If it was me i'd be tempted to relaunch the patcher and go back to a lower resolution. Not the ideal solution but worthwhile if you can get the game to work.

    Apologies if this has been answered, but I don't think it has... running a new Asus, when I launch cm0102.exe, I don't get all of the screen. As in - the game seems to *think* it's full screen but the rightmost quarter of the screen is showing the desktop behind. (I can't seem to upload a screen grab for some reason - none of the .jpg or .bmp were "valid files".) GDI works quite happily, so suspect it may be something to do with DirectX? Tried all compatibility variations, and changing the resolution in Tapani... Any thoughts?

    Black screen on start up

    Hi, I've been playing CM 01/02 for years on my PC with no problem at all using patch 3968 on windows 7 and all of a sudden today when I start the game up, I get a black screen, I can hear the ref blow the whistle and the crowd cheer but then nothing happens! I've tried re-installing but no luck

    I hope someone can help me.

    Regards,
    Dan
