Android - Installation on Android Devices

You can buy the game from the Google Play Store via this link: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.sigames.fmh2015

The game will also be available for Kindle Fire devices from the Amazon App Store in the near future

The first time the game is run, it will need to connect to the internet to download skin data. You will have the choice of either downloading the basic data appropriate for your device or downloading the full skin data for your device which also includes player pictures.

The size of the basic data download is 27MB-40MB depending on your device. The size of the full data download is 80MB-260MB depending on your device.

We recommend downloading these files over WiFi and not over a mobile network. Please ensure you have a functioning WiFi connection before downloading these files.

After downloading the skin data, the game will then take a few minutes to unpack itself and detect the appropriate Match Engine for your device - this should only happen the first time it is run - and then the Main Menu will load. Please note that if you are downloading the full data on an older/lower spec device it may take some time to fully unpack and install.

The game should run on the vast majority of Android devices that are currently in widespread use.

You will require:

  • Android OS version 2.3.3 (Gingerbread) or above
  • A minimum resolution of 480 x 320

This depends on whether you wish to install the full skin data including player pics or simply the basic data. As a general rule, we recommend having at least 200MB free when installing the basic data (the actual download size is a lot less though).

 

Please allow space for the full skin data including player pics depending on your device's screen resolution as follows:

  • HVGA (480 x 320) - 280MB
  • WVGA (800 x 480) - 320MB
  • HD devices (640p or higher) - 470MB

If the Google Play store gives you an error, please try clearing data and settings from Google Play and Google Play Services via the Settings -> Apps menu on your device and rebooting.

If you can't download the skin data, please ensure you have sufficient space on your device and that you have a solid WiFi connection.

If your install is failing right at the end of the process - i.e. after the download and install to SD card have taken place, please follow the steps in 'Help - the game won't run!'.

For all other install issues, please post details in the bugs forum for us (use a new thread) and we'll do our best to talk you through resolving any problems you might be having with installing the game.

Such issues are rare, however they're also device specific so we may need to ask you a few questions in order to resolve them.

If you want to switch from using the basic skin data to the full skin data (including player pics) or vice versa, please follow the below steps using a file explorer app on your device (Androzip and ES File Explorer are two good free examples):

  • Uninstall the app
  • Locate the ‘fmh2015_data’ folder on your device
  • If you have unlockables that you wish to keep, back up the game.cfg from within the fmh2015_data/data/ folder
  • Delete the contents of this folder *except* for the ‘save_games’ folder
  • Re-start your phone
  • Reinstall the app from Google Play
  • The game should then give you the choice of which data to download once again
  • Replace the game.cfg if necessary
