View Full Version : FM09 is slower than FM08.

I have noticed that when playing FM09 it is generally alot slower that previous games. The match engine is slower and even just clicking on items it is not as responsive.

I have a (recently upgraded) 2GB laptop, 1.6GHz. Dont have any other programs running. Running a small database with no other leagues running.

Has anyone else noticed this?? It isnt REALLY slow just not as quick as previous games. Maybe its just the way this new game is, i dont know.

Thanks.

Definitely slower. Dragging players around on the tactics grid can be like a sloth covered in molasses.

I haven't played the full game yet, but I found the demo absolutely flew by for me, I found it very fast. The full game might be different though?

Your processor isn't amazingly fast though, so I wonder if you've got too many processes running? Open task manager (Ctrl + Alt + Delete) and see how many processes are running (second tab). Anything over 40 is a lot, anything over 30 can (usually) be trimmed down.

I've recently pruned my PC of all bloatware and unnecessary processes and tasks and it's racing along nicely now.

hi, thanks for your advice. I have looked at my task manager and im running 59 processes! Any idea of how I could cut these down?? thanks.

I agree with Gills on this. Demo it went as fast as Usain Bolt in 100m.

I have not got the real game yet, but I'm hoping it on my computer it does the same.

Close anything that is your process, not System etc.
Leave fm (obviously), leave explorer open and anything else you know you need open.

Yeah, that's loads, but not unheard of (my mother in law's laptop was running 79!!). The best thing I can advise is to set aside a couple of hours, open Task Manager, open your MS Config (Start - Run - type "msconfig" (no quote marks) - press go - go to the last tab "Start Up"), and open your services box (Start - Run - type "services.msc"). Next open Google, and Google each of your processes to find out what they are - Process Library is a good website to check also.

MS Config helps stop processes opening at start up, but services.msc is brilliant for sorting it as well. I'd literally go through each process and Google each one to see what it is and whether it's necessary.

If you get stuck, feel free to post in this thread, as it should make FM run a bit faster, so I think it is relevant.

A nice side effect of all this is you'll find Windows starts up and shuts down much faster.

:thup:

PS - I had a purge recently, and when I start up I now run only 22-24 processes, which I'm very pleased with. Basically, I killed all the crappy updaters that I had running.

andoz2000
16-11-2008, 14:55

Thanks but i need a bit more help with this. Ive checked it out and Black viper is a big website with lots going on and cannot find these 'lists' of programs that are running. Can anyone give me clear directions as to how to sort out necessary programs from the unecessary.

Thanks.

when i go to end a process it says; warning terminating a process can cause undesired results including loss of data and system stability. how is that safe to delete. i would really like to play FM09 faster. managed to play 2 matches in 2 hours.

I think it runs fine.My PC is only P4 2.66Ghz with 1.5GB ram and it's runs smoothly.only problem is when I go to the tactics screen in a match it takes about 30 seconds to load.

But I'm happy with how it runs considering my relatively low-spec computer.

If you (and Andoz) have Googled any processes and you're not sure whether you can prevent the process from running without any problems, simply tell us which process (write it out EXACTLY as it appears) on here and I can tell you what it is.

Cutting down the number of processes should make FM09 run faster. :thup:

Harryohh
16-11-2008, 15:53
If your PC is only capable of running 2 matches in 2 hours(This must be an exaggeration) then the method recommended isn't going to vastly improve things.

What are your specs?

ok here are just some of the 59 processes i have running at the moment.

SVCHOST.EXE - DON'T CANCEL
GameOverlayUI.exe - this is Steam crap. Turn it off
ePower_DMC.exe - it's a power management tool, you can cancel it if you wish
wmiprvse.exe - DON'T CANCEL
csrss.exe - DON'T CANCEL
LManager.exe - this is a keyboard applet. Probably useless. I'd say cancel it
SynTPEnh.exe - support for your laptop touchpad. I *think* you can cancel it, but I'm not sure.
ctfmon.exe - if you use voice recognition or handwriting recognition software this is useful. Otherwise, kill it*
admServ.exe - Acer configuration stuff. Personally, I'd kill it, but it's personal preference really
admtray.exe - see above
services.exe - DON'T CANCEL
iPodService.exe - something to do with iTunes recognising when an iPod is connected automatically. I kill it, but most people like it.
dllhost.exe - is usually a Windows process - can sometimes hide a virus though
lsass.exe - DON'T CANCEL
moniter.exe - monitors hardware components, hmmm, I'd cancel personally, but others may disagree

Any idea if any of these are necessary or not??

Thanks

* to remove ctfmon: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/282599

Now, you probably know how to cancel them, but to stop them starting up, you'll need to go to msconfig and services.msc (see above posts) and change the relevant points. A mixture of common sense and Google should see you right, but if you have any specific questions, give me a shout.

There is a program that is called game prelauncher. It's free I think and you can make it so that after a restart the minimum number of processes are run.

It deactivates 50+ processes I think and can increase the speed of FM quite a lot. You won't be able to do many things until you restore the services and restart the computer though.

ok thanks for trying but to be honest this doest really help me none. It appears from the above that only one or two can definatly be turned off, and the others are sort of at my own risk. I dont want to mess up my computer. I cant see how its as simple as google-ing these processes because when they are typed in I get MANY MANY pages of computer mumbo jumbo and no clear definition as to weather it should be kept or not.

And back to my original question will this even help speed up FM09? Or looking at my specs, is it that my laptop is not powerful enough?
I cant beleive im the only one who is finding FM09 a bit on the slow side in all aspects. What isnt helpfull is people replying with comments like 'I find FM09 really really quick!' and 'Its your computer' or 'Just go to *random site* and download this and that* Thats nice, but if it is infact my computer I would really appriciate some helpful and straight to the point advice on how to remedy this problem.

Sorry if this comes across as harsh but im getting very very frustrated this this ****ing about.

Thank you

FM09 is slow for me too but it possibly because I run 22 leagues, still thought it would be faster.

When my computer was worse with 1800+ Athlon that "game prelauncher" program helped quite a lot. I don't think I had any problems with it. If you want to just play FM and not browsing the net at the same time in alt-tab I think you should try it at least. Just type "game prelauncher" in google and you will easily find it.

I don't know what sort of processor you have. If it's a single core then 1.6Ghz really isn't that great. It'll play FM09 for sure, but it won't be amazingly fast. I've tried to help you speed up your computer to get some more "oomph" out of your processor.

I don't mind helping you out with some of these, but you have to at least try to find the information out for yourself. Some of them I know (like csrrs, smss - don't cancel; but do cancel jusched), but the others I have to Google. Have a go yourself, and if you're really stuck, come back and I'll try to help.

It does speed up your computer, so can help speed up FM09.

I think quite a few people are finding it on the slow side .. have found alot of advice on here very helpfull...

Another thing you could try m8 is playing it in windowed mode and set resolutions to 1024 -768..fixed my scrolling problem in an instant.and basically having nothing running on your windows bar apart from your anti-virus programme.

Hope this helps :thup:

Other than understandably taking a bit longer for a match to start, the rest actually seems quicker than 08 for me. The interface certainly feels more responsive.

Jonfun1980
16-11-2008, 18:26
I think if SI done some further work to the game to take advantage of Vista 64, quad core pcs and 8gb ram, it would allow the game to run really quick. You would also be able to run all the leagues at pace.

nicobile
16-11-2008, 20:05
yes, its a lot slower than the last games, it takes forever sometimes. i dont really care, if i would want i could change the detail levels but im used to playing with the same configuration since fm06. Its a little slower, its a pain, yes, but its just a little slower than last year version. Cant believe that i took 2 hrs to play two games.... or you have a crappy pc or you are having other problems.
I dont know why its this slow, the demo was really really fast, and the game didnt suffer any great changes apart from the 3d, it would be nice to see an improvement in a future patch.

To be honest you can forget about cancelling processes.You're processor is bad and this game or any modern game will never be fast for you.Most of the processes aren't very CPU heavy anyway.

Just defrag your hard drive and it makes it much faster, cos if you currently use the microsoft windows own defrag it is crap tbh. download auslogics disk defrag its so much quicker and much better, plus a visual interface which you don't get with vista. It will run faster if you defrag with the auslogics one

Right cilck anywhere on your desktop.

Go to properties

Go to setiings. (the last one on the right)

Adjust to 1024/768 pixels


Start game.



Go to Display and sound settings on FM

Set to window mode ( make sure you do this after you adjusted the pixels)

The scrollers should run faster then.

Make sure you have the Min processers running too:thup:


If windowed mode is greyed out...

Right click FM shortcut...

Type.. -small_screen -windowed. in target on Apps at the end of "C:\Program Files\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2009\fm.exe"

Guys, please check this thread out: http://community.sigames.com/showthread.php?t=56877

Could this be what you're all experiencing? Use FM in windowed mode and open the Task Manager (CTRL+ALT+DEL) and select Performance, and see what sort of processor usage you're getting as you play.

Personally the game runs fine on my pc, doesnt seem any slower than '08.

However the tactics screen is very sluggish, moving things around can be very hit and miss.

I am not sure if it has anything to do with the shortcut being a STEAM shortcut and not saying anything about Football manager in it??

Here what I ended up with in the target box...... "C:\Program Files\Steam\steam.exe" -applaunch 10540-small_screen -windowed.

Does that seem right?

Cheers

Hi mate.

Not too sure if its any different on Steam should'nt be.

Try putting a space after 10540

So it should look like this

"C:\Program Files\Steam\steam.exe" -applaunch 10540 -small_screen -windowed.

I had to put a space in on mine..did'nt work unless the space was in

Hope this helps m8.

it's horrible having a slow computer - i feel so inferior to everyone else. i was on fm for a few hours y'day and i'm just coming up to the start of season, it's the slowest one yet for me - i can't even get 3D ..boohoo

anyway this is a good thread for people like me who can't afford a new laptop just to play one game so i shall be watching and learning with a keen interest :-D

The interface is a bit unresponsive at times, but maybe that's because I tend to always have photoshop and firefox open as I play. Good ole quad cores

Hey guys.

Found a pretty nifty tool that someone posted up a week back..

This is the updated version.

http://www.iobit.com/advancedwindowscareper.html

It analysis and can help speed up PC, Has a powerfull defrag tool in aswell (found over 33000 problem even after I did a system defrag a few days back)

Loads of other features..have a play around with it..and its completely FREE!! for personal use.

Just thought it might help improve the speed of FM09..worth a try

Thanks for the help Tilton......got the windowed screen but had to re-load game.

It has improved everything exept the match engine.....timer still super slow and takes a while to set up just 2d highlights.

I might try re-installing without STEAM tough I got the old graphics error message when I tried that over the weekend and couldn't even load the game up.

Cheers

just two quick things im hoping someone can help me with so i can get back to enjoying the best game on the planet at an acceptable rate.

How do i defrag the disk?and what does that do

And what is the easiest way to put in windows mode and what exactly does that mean?

I no i sound like a ****** but just want to know whats going on.

just want my game to be faster!

By the way is anyone experiencing an odd black flicker on their screnn when FM is processing??

I find it the same or faster. I am running 49 leagues and have retained all players from the top 75 countries. It runs normally.

Using hyperthreading helps alot, as does having alot of RAM, a good graphics card and almost no useless processes (like virus scanners, indexing, etc) running. I only run the bare essentials for Windows and the rest of the CPU power is saved for FM.

it all runs smooth as pie on my pc except when starting a new game the finding manager targets section takes ages, it used to be about 2 mins to load about 35 leagues where now it takin like 10 mins. i have a quad core, 4 gig ram and Radeon HD 3870 card so it should load faster than that.

Any official comment on this? I have twice the required RAM to run FM09 and don't start talking about other processes and all this nonsense when I formatted my computer a week ago and I'm sensible with hidden processes and start-up processes etc. In my opinion, I am waiting longer to play a worse, bug ridden game. The 9.2 patch needs to be released ASAP and someone needs to tell us if the game speed is going to get better or it's just bad this year.

Thanks in advance.

FarCry 2 is slower than FarCry
Half-Life2 is slower than Half-Life
Fallout3 is slower than Fallout2

Guess what? Games get more sophisticated and demand more of your system and tend to get slower.

That's not rellevant for FM09, because the 2d match engine has exactly same graphics as FM08, and runs very slow.

OT: So, anyone found a solution to make his FM work faster? I mean a really useful one :).

Oh god.
Just checked all unknown processes on processlibrary.com and there was 4 Trojans. :S csrss.exe ; ctfmon.exe ; lsass.exe ; smss.exe.
I know it's not a forum, where I should ask help about PC related problems, but maybe someone can tell me how to get rid of them.

I know I was wondering the same..

The processlibrary have identified as trojans..but according to Gillsman -DONT CANCEL

Would be nice if someone can offer some feedback.

ok so i'm not worried about the 3D pitch as the reviews haven't been too hot.. but i think the general support from si has been poor in terms of helping people with low-spec pc's - the advice is basically buy a new one - which is impossible for me at the moment by the way - i understand the game moves on but i could play any of the previous incarnations fine and i understand if you take the 3D pitch away i should be able to get it working as well as the 08 version - whilst not ideal it would be better than wasting 30 of my hard earned cash.. so anyway after defragging, re-installing, doing the disk clean up thing is there any more i can do?

reinstall your OS from scratch if you haven't done it for a long time, 1 year +

What I found interesting was that with FM09 running idle (i.e. on Squad screen, not doing anything else) on my MacBook I have difficulty running DVD Player.

This wasn't an issue in FM08 where both would quite happily run side by side? This suggests that FM09 requires greater resources when it isn't actually doing computation?

Since i've had the full game, i have to say, the game does get annoyingly slow on match days, even more so than last year - bulky coding is likely the problem, as its not my system

On that site it says SVchost is a virus or trojan..is that correct??

Not necessarily, but it can be. Basically, SVchost is a generic name for Microsoft processes (mostly dll - dynamic link library I think). You'll probably have more than one SVchost running, and afaik there's no way to determine whether or not your particular instance is a virus. Some viruses disguise themselves as an SVchost process, but in all likelihood, you're probably OK.

FYI guys, if you're running vista, its perfectly normal to have 50+ processes running. On XP it the optimum would be around 30-35.
