    Cannot run game: Failed to set up graphics system

    ERROR: Cannot run game: Failed to set up graphics system, to fix this issue, please do the following:

    Please download the following update from the Microsoft Direct X SDK:
    http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/e...2-438a3ba730ba

    Use the following settings in Direct-x Control Panel.

    Run the following tool:

    Start->Direct-X SDK->Direct-X Utilities->Direct-X Caps Viewer

    Ensure the Direct-X properties appear as the dialog below. Especially important to ensure the Enumerate Reference Rasterizer is checked.



    When downloading this file please use the Firefox browser as some people have encounter difficulties when using Internet Explorer.

    You should also check that you are running the latest graphics driver, you can do this by visiting the computer manufacturer website, or by visiting the graphics card manufacturing website.

    Also if you are running Steam, make sure this is not running when attempting to install

    Also make sure your Graphics Card drivers are updated to their latest versions:

    What drivers you need and where to download them from depends on your graphics drivers.

    Some Computer manufacturers insist you download drivers from their own sites. Please refer to the website of your computer manufacturer before reporting issues with graphics drivers.

    To verify your PCs graphics card chipset:

    For XP

    From the Windows desktop:
    - Click Start
    - Click Run
    - Type DIAG in the Open field (thats dxdiag in capitals, i cant get rid of the smiley)
    - Click OK

    For Vista/Win 7
    - Click Start
    - In the search programs and files box, type DIAG (dxdiag in capitals)
    - Press Enter

    This will launch the DirectX Diagnostic Tool. Click on the Display and Sound tabs. The upper left box headed ‘Devices’ shows the make and model of card; the right box headed ‘Drivers’ shows the driver version number.

    Here are the websites of the largest graphics cards and chipset manufacturers:

    Nvidia (Gforce/Legacy)
    http://www.nvidia.co.uk/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-uk

    ATI (Radeon)
    http://ati.amd.com/support/driver.html

    Intel (Onboard Chipsets)
    http://downloadcenter.intel.com/

    There are other manufacturers of graphics card drivers. If you can not find drivers for these cards they may have been discontinued. Please ask in this case as we may still be able to help.

    The above suggested hasn't worked, is there anything else I can try?

    If this fails to work some people have reported using SwiftShader has helped them in this situation.

    The demo version of SwiftShader (which is the full version but for home use only) can be downloaded from here - http://www.transgaming.com/business/swiftshader/signup

    SwiftShader is a high performance software 3D renderer that can be used in place of standard Direct3D implementations.

    To test it with your application download the demo, unzip the file and move the provided D3D8 or D3D9 DLL file into the same folder as the fm.exe

    If you try one and it does not work (you get a windows error message for example), try the other.

    Then just run the game as normal - although bear in mind the swiftshader logo will appear in the bottom left hand corner of the game.

    Cheers.

  2. If you get this message

    "not well-formed invalid token at line 1 floating_league_table_state_changed xml"

    Try this:

    Delete the following folder:

    XP: C:\Documents and Settings\[your username]\Application Data\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2010\settings

    Vista\Windows7: C:\Users\[your username]\AppData\Roaming\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2010\settings

    Once deleted restart your computer and try launching the game again.

    There is no exact solution as every crash dump is caused by a different problem, often the problem is nothing to do with FM.

    All i can say is, i use graphics that can be trusted, ie the logo and face megapacks, almost always i use a default skin, i NEVER use FMRTE and rarely use the editor.

    I keep my frankly poor laptop up to date, and i regularly defragment.

    Shock horror i haven't had a crash dump since the memory leak issues of FM10 before patch 10.1

    Most people who have a crash dump should probably look at themselves/their actions/their systems condition before blaming the game.

  11. Hi there, new to this site and I've a couple of questions I need help with - I'm no techie so bear with me. I'm an old CM player - the really old ones, when Maradona was still on it as a player - and the latest version of the (what turned into FM) I tried was the 2005 version. I've decided to give the latest version a whiz and so I've downloaded the demo.


    Anyway, I have it downloaded but when I click the icon to start it up, up pops a box that says "cannot run game: failed to setup graphics system". I've since checked the system requirements (trust me to do that after I've downloaded it) of the game and it appears that my "graphics card" won't support the game. I've checked both the device manager and done the DIAG thing, and by "display" it says, "chip type: NVIDIA GeForce Mx 420", "DAC type: Integrated RAMDAC", and "approx memory 64.MB". Firstly, is that (the chipset) also the graphics card (and video card?)? If so, is it definitely the reason why the game won't run? Finally, if that is the reason, what can I do to put it right? (if it needs a new one, how do I do install it, what's the cost etc..)

    It seems that's the only thing preventing it from running, although I would annoyed if I bought a new chipset/graphics card/video card only to find something else prevented it from running. Maybe then I should put up the computer spec. According to "My computer", that would be the following: Dell & XP, Processor: Intel Pentium 4 CPU 2.53 GHz. Memory: 512 MB Ram. Direct X version 9.0c. (I have no idea how to find if my DVD drive is 4x speed - I presume it is). I also have a keyboard, a mouse, and a pair of speakers.

    So, to sum up:

    1) Is my NVIDIA GeForce MX 420 graphics card/chipset/video card (delete as appropriate) 100% not good enough to support the game.

    2) If so, what can I do to rectify the problem - how much will that cost?

    3) If my graphics card/chipset/video card won't support the game, is there anything else that on the face of it you think might also prevent it from running?

    Any other comments relevant to my quest to get the game up and running would be appreciated.

    Many Thanks.

  12. Also looking for hep Is it possible that too much graphics (facepacks,logos,skins etc.) could cause crash dump error? And I set save game interval on every day,can it be a problem? I am asking this because I get crash dump error quite a lot,so if anyone can help please ?

  28. Hi, I tried installing the game without steam and got the graphics system error but when I installed it on steam it was fine. Problem is it has updated itself to the 11.2 patch which I hear has errors on it creating crash dumps. How do I get rid of the 11.2 patch and just use the default data?

  29. I have a folder crash dumps, with one file in it. But dont have any problem i think. I can play my Spurs game. Weird isnt it?

  30. is it strange that my FM 11 folder in "Roaming" folder is over 300 mb ?

  31. Hi there hoping you can help me!

    I followed the instructions to the letter to try and load up the game since I've only ever recieved the "Cannot run game - Failed to setup graphics system"

    It appears my graphics card is discontinued so posting to see if you can indeed help (I hope so!!)

    Here's my details :

    Device

    Name : Intel(R) 82865G Graphics Controller

    Same thing happened to me. Gutted.

    If the files can be opened and edited then why couldn't it be saved?
    I get an error that says "XML parsing error" "not well formed (invalid token) at line 1 of last-saved_game.xml"

    With all of these programming gurus on here I'm hoping to find out it's possible to open the file and edit it, maybe open an uncorrupted one and mimic the missing or corrupted data?

    Long shot, but I think I'm done with FM 11 for awhile if it's not recoverable, don't have the energy to re-create my season.

    Going to buy a Mac too, that was the last straw in my patience for the ghetto world of microsoft and pc's.

    Any advice will be very, very much appreciated!!

    How? Who? What?

    Do share.

  34. Cheers Jake for posting that. Followed it down to the "t" and seems to have fixed my XML issue. Have had "crash Dumps" happen to me for 3 seasons now. Usually I could play two games, save and restart the game as during the third game at some point it would crash. Was content with doing this, even though was a pain in the ass, until today had an XML error before a game. Basically wouldn't let me continue. After I deleted the FM11 folder listed in the instructional XML issue was no more and still had my save game still don't know about "crash dumps" but will get back on that. Also I deleted all additional graphic content except the FM 2011 logos the .fmf file.

    Thanks Again

  35. Alrite guys, my xml error occurs when I first double click on the fm11 shortcut. It says something about line one database...

    Any ideas.

  36. I downloaded using Steam, I'm getting the XML last saved game error, can't load any games. I tried doing what was suggested, but even when I made absolutely sure I had hidden folders shown, no settings folder to be seen. I can't have been looking in the wrong place, and even if I was I searched the entire My Documents for a folder called Settings, and nothing.

  37. I take it people who run the game on Apple computers don't have these problems?

  38. In football manager 2011, when i go to player training it show me array out of bount. What should i do?

  39. Right i followed the instructions for how to fix XML parsing error as one of my saves wouldnt load. I deleted the file etc and i started up FM again and i have now lost all of my saves, no previous saved games!!

  40. I've been getting the "not well formed (invalid token) at line 1 of last-saved_game.xml" error as well. Went in and deleted cache and settings folders. Didn't work. De-fragged hard drive, ran anti-virus, nothing works. I've noticed that in my Documents folder, it's been creating a new folder for Sports Interactive each time I start the game (so I always have 2), keep deleting the empty one to no avail. Could the extra folder have something to do with it? Didn't have problems until the new patch.

  41. Memory

    I play in a notebook and so far everything is running. Now, however, this error write off and then quit, what can I do?

    http://kephost.hu/image-2343_4D80CA6E.jpg

  42. for me it comes up

    xml parsing error
    no element found at line 47 of profile0.xmlcr

    then fm11 opens but the screen resolution screws up

  43. Tried re-installing?

  44. sorry im a bit of a noob how do you re-install and do you lose your saved games

  45. Back your save games up to another part of your hard drive or even to usb.

    Find them in my documents>sports interactive>fm2011>games

    It may be worth trying a full manual uninstall. I posted how to do that here:

    http://www.fm-base.co.uk/forum/f115/...st1081234.html

  46. will try and have saved my games and editors to my desktop

    ---------- Post added at 11:54 PM ---------- Previous post was at 11:42 PM ----------

    its uninstalled but now it wont install it opens autoplay but nothing happens after i press run autorun.exe nothing happens

    ---------- Post added at 12:02 AM ---------- Previous post was yesterday at 11:54 PM ----------

    its all good found it

  47. Has it fixed your problem?

  48. ffs same problem can anyone help
