Player Manager Save Game Issue - AGAIN!!!

Postby normsteel10 » Mon Sep 26, 2011 2:42 pm

All
I have spent the last few days trying to configure PM to work using both Amiga Forever and WINUAE.

I have read through all the forums and all the advice provided has not solved my problem.

Having downloaded many versions, umpteen save disks and loaded existing save games etc..
- Each time I hit save, I get the following.
1) Using various created blank disks using various types, I get the "load data disk screen" error....
2) With a downloaded existing save game disk, I get a file error if I select a new filename or overwrite existing one.....

Clearly there must be something in my config that is causing the game to error, is there anyone who can help so that I can demonstrate to the kids a REAL footy game and avoid buying FIFA12......

Help appreciated....

Surely one of the PM fans around here can help?

Just in case it's relevant here's the config that I use for KO2CV. Hope you crack it soon mate.

According to your first post, you've already tried everything. :(

Try running WinUAE as Administrator. It may be that the location of your saves requires elevated access, hence the file errors.

To clarify; I have tried everything that is listed on the various forums but no joy. I guess I am wondering is there any fundamental reason why it wont work for me....

Basically, right click WinUAE and "Run As Administrator". Depends on your OS.

OK, so try to run Amiga Forever as administrator.

If you could provide some screenshots or even a video that would probably be of great use to help solve the issue.
