  1. For everyone experiencing trouble with crashes with the editor or "could not find data" etc.:
  2.  
  3. First off edit your special folders.xml located in Football Manager 2012\Editor like this (Open the file with Notepad):
  4.  
  5.  
  6.  
  7. <record>
  8. <list id="items">
  9. <record path="data" resource_root="true">
  10. <string id="name" value="app_folder" translate="false"/>
  11. </record>
  12.  
  13. <record path="../data" resource_root="true">
  14. <string id="name" value="sios_folder" translate="false"/>
  15. </record>
  16.  
  17. <record path="../data/sigfx" resource_root="true">
  18. <string id="name" value="sigfx_folder" translate="false"/>
  19. </record>
  20.  
  21. <!-- not a resource root, as the same folder has already been added as the sios folder -->
  22. <record path="../data">
  23. <string id="name" value="database_folder" translate="false"/>
  24. </record>
  25.  
  26. <!-- not a resource root, as the same folder has already been added as the sios folder -->
  27. <record path="../data">
  28. <string id="name" value="match_folder" translate="false"/>
  29. </record>
  30.  
  31. <!-- not a resource root, resource manager doesn't scan language files -->
  32. <record path="../data/languages">
  33. <string id="name" value="language_data_folder" translate="false"/>
  34. </record>
  35.  
  36. <!-- not a resource root, the updates manager will use this to find the update resource roots that are valid for the application -->
  37. <record path="../data/updates">
  38. <string id="name" value="updates_folder" translate="false"/>
  39. </record>
  40. </list>
  41. </record>
  42.  
  43.  
  44.  
  45. What I've done is remove the "football manager/" part, as that is what causing why it can't find the data folder.
  46.  
  47. Save&Exit.
  48.  
  49. You will be able to load the editor now. Do so. Now quit the editor.
  50. You will notice if you give it another try it will give you another error that it can't find the font.
  51.  
  52. Go to your folder options and enable Show hidden files, folders, and drives. (Tools --> Folder Options --> View Tab --> Advanced Settings --> Tick show hidden files)
  53.  
  54. Now browse to your (win7) C:\Users\<yourwindowsname>\AppData\Roaming\Sports Interactive\Editor 2012\cache\
  55.  
  56. Delete every folder in that folder.
  57.  
  58. Load up the editor again, it should now work again every time you exit it. (I also disabled the option "Save Backup File" at Settings, it shouldn't be related to it, but it could write to cache, so..)
  59.  
  60. For other font/crash related FM.exe problems, you could always delete the cache in C:\Users\<yourwindowsname>\AppData\Roaming\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2012\cache\
  61.  
  62. It could solve a few things. Remember to untick "Use Skin Cache" in Preferences once you are in the game, it solves a lot of problems especially if you use or want to use custom skins.
  63.  
  64. Enjoy!
