Woah, that's rather odd, 'coz FIFA 98 runs very well in my WinXP.
yes, there is not an issue with fifa98, if you run under compatibility mode, the issue has been found with 99
really? I will go buy it next time
still a top class game
as long as you don;t expect it to have the garphics etc of the later versions, then in terms of gameplay it is still up there
i still get device errors and my kits i tried to use on a previous machine with fifa dont work
it was because i didnt load the files necessary into the texures folder
it works now
Yes I know it's 2006 , about a year after the last post in this sticky was made , but the problem has still not been solved . My fifa 99 will work smoothly until the point you press "Play Game" and it freezes on the loading game screen . I've tried working around with the patch , but it didn't fix anyhting .
Any help you guys can provide is very welcome .
sorry mate, I know it's been a while to respond, but hopefully your still around.
This sounds like an issue with your graphics card drivers, I would recommend you make sure your drivers are up tp date, and give Galah's 3d patch for fifa99 a try. The link is further up in the thread
I thought I'd just clarify we were never really able to get Fifa99 to run stably on Windows 2000 so we never gave it official support.
My mate who managed to show me a few tests of it running on Windows 2000 (though from memory we lost all joystick and mouse support) but the other bugs it introduced eliminated these gains.
From memory we used a combination of my patch, enabling the Compatibility mode feature of the Windows 2000 CD + the latest DirectX 9 version + setting the graphics the display adapter to 640x480 and 16bit colour, disabled the computers virtual memory and reducing windows video acceleration settings to 1 notch above off.
I really should write a final guide for all the Fifa patches I have just to tie up all the loose ends.
Will be interesting to see how the old fifa games fair when Vista hits the streets in a few months time.
Anyways, its good to see this place is still ticking along.
If anyone wants to contact me its best to send an email to galahs.australia(AT)gmail.com

well unfortunately you cannot play fifa99 online, only via modem to modem connection.
The latest version of the patch is version 1.1, and I have just checked thro my e-mails, and I have hd reports of it niot working for some ppl.
EA would tell u that it doesn't work, they have tol others that there's nothing they can do, then the patch has worked

My life has lost its meaning.
It works fine in XP. Just set up 'Galahs Fifa 99 3D Patch'. And compatibility mod Windows 98.
I've read pretty much everything on this forum on FIFA 99 & Windows XP. I'm running Win XP SP3 and can't seem to get the game to run. What I did was, I installed the game, applied EA patch - didn't work. I also tried what the above post had suggested - I installed the game, applied Gallah's 3D patch, switched to Win98 compatibility mode - the game still wouldn't run.
Doubleclicking the icon keeps giving the same result - mouse arrow shows 'thinking' for 2-3 seconds, and that's about it. Nothing else.
My knowledge and understanding in computers is relatively narrow. My computer is very basic and clean, just Windows and some small programs for music installed. The game CD is original, and is in pristine condition.
Please guide me through this guys. Thanks for any feedback.
Help anyone ? The consensus here refers to the EA 3d patch, Galah's 3d patch, and to Windows 98 compatibility option. None seems to work for me, running WinXP SP3 (32 bit). If anyone can still play this game under similar conditions please advice me what to do.
USM 98 still runs well for me, but a game from a company like E.A. with lots of reputation, that was out only 3 years before XP was out - doesn't. An absurd isn't it ...
I've tried the Microsoft Compatibility Tool that I once used for my USM 98, but it doesn't seem to change anything in the way the game constantly behaves - it runs (in the background) for about 3 seconds and then shuts down.
Issue solved - I simply downloaded a cracked version which worked fine. With the addition of the full Data folder from the CD-ROM it also has all the features now (music, videos, etc.). The CD is original, so obviously the problem lies somewhere in the communication between Windows and the CD-ROM.
It works fine however I still have a minor problem where the commentator never say the names of the teams (when starting a match) and players (when passing the ball to them, and when dribbling with them).
Anyone knows how to solve that ? Thanks
edit, I don't know if it's necessarily related to Windows XP, so I'll start a separate thread for it.
Separate names with a comma.
