This article walks through how to install the 3.9.68 patch to your Championship Manager 01-02 installation in a Crossover bottle.

In my previous post I walked through how to get Championship Manager 01-02 running on M series MacOS. Here we patch that install to the final production version released by Eidos.

Full series:

  4. Update Championship Manager 01-02 background images

Why bother?

There are two main reasons that you will want to patch your CM01/02 install to 3.9.68. Firstly - it will fix all of the below problems, most of which I did not notice first time around. Second, and more importantly, you will need to have patched to 3.9.68 if you want to install any of the data updates that continue to be maintaned even now.

Firstly, head over to, and download a copy of the patch.

Right click on your bottle in Crossover, and select the install software into… option from the menu.
