Football Manager 2024 (FM 24) “Servers content unreachable” Error: Is there any fix yet
Unfortunately, as of writing this article, there is no official fix provided by the game developers. However, there are several steps you can take to resolve the issue. Obviously, they are just potential fixes and not guaranteed to work for everyone. Regardless, here are some workarounds to try.
Relaunch Steam and Run as Admin
Sometimes, a simple restart of the Steam client can help resolve connection issues. Close Steam completely and then re-launch it to see if the problem persists. But before relaunching, right-click on Steam’s icon and select the Properties option. In the Compatibility tab, you will find the option to run the Steam client with admin privileges. Checkmark the Run as Administrator option. Now, launch Steam, and then launch the game to check if the issue persists.
Switch Regions in Steam
If you encounter the “Content servers unreachable error”, it may be due to an increased number of users in your region. To address this, change your client’s download region in the Steam settings, restart the download, and once the content is installed, you can switch back to your primary region. You can use a VPN for this workaround.
Verifying the files is another trusted workaround to try when faced with any errors or issues with your games. So, to verify the game files, all you need to do is open the Steam client and right-click on the game from your library. After that, select the Properties option, and then click on the Installed Files tab. Here, you will find the option to verify the integrity of the files. Initiate the process and wait for it to be completed. After this, launch the game.
Allow Steam through Antivirus
Adding the game to the whitelist of your antivirus software can resolve issues where the game won’t launch or crashes at startup. Typically found in the antivirus software’s “Settings” or “Preferences” under “Exclusions” or “Exceptions”, you can add the game’s installation folder or executable file to the list. This process may involve browsing for the file or folder or manually entering the path. After making these changes, attempt to launch the game again.
Check Your Internet Connection
Ensure that your internet connection is stable and working. You may want to try restarting your router or modem to fix this. You can also try switching to a different network or using a wired connection for better connectivity.
Grant Full Disk Access (for Mac users)
If you’re a Mac user and facing this issue, it may be due to a permissions problem. You’ll need to grant full disk access to Steam. To do this, go to your Mac’s System Settings and select ‘Privacy & Security’. Now, choose ‘Full Disk Access’, click the ‘+’ icon, and authenticate. After that, head to ‘Applications’, find Steam, and click Open. From the list of apps that appear, make sure that Steam gets full disk access. Once you do this, the error should no longer appear.
Reinstall the Game/Steam and Contact Support
If the issue persists, you can attempt to uninstall and reinstall the game as well as Steam. This can help refresh the game and client files and may resolve the connectivity problem. And if a clean reinstallation fails to solve the error, it’s advisable to contact the game’s official support channels. They may be able to provide specific solutions or workarounds for the issue.
