When you load it will load the game with the furthest progressed in-game date out of the drop-box and local copy.

    Right-click (click the right button of your mouse) on the desktop shortcut or actual executable.
    A dialog menu will appear. Choose Launch Analysis from the menu choices.

  • What if I encounter issues regarding the installation of a patch under Windows Vista and if I receive Sum Check Errors?
  • 1) Uninstall the game.
    2) Make sure all files are deleted from the drive where you installed the game (e.g. c:\Program Files\Childish Things\International Cricket Captain 2011)
    3) Reinstall and do not modify any files or folders.
    - If you have a CD version, re-install from there
    - If you have a download version, download from the Childish Things Website again and re-install (just in case your previous download was corrupt).
    4) Run the game.
    5) Press internet game to patch
    6) Once the patch has installed, you will need to quit and re-start the game from your normal start link for it to be able to locate your saved games.
  • Downloading patch file stalls at various % amounts.
  • This could be due to one of the following:

    1) Anti-virus/Firewall software – You should disable these if you are having problems with the patching process.
    2) Very important - whilst downloading ICC if running in a window it MUST have focus otherwise the download will fail. Users should not switch to other programs. This is also the same when playing on-line. When playing on-line it is actually recommended to play full screen.
    3) If a download attempt fails you must fully exit ICC and ideally delete the partially downloaded file before retrying.
    4) Firewalls must allow access to port 2281.
