    Default Question about how to make FM run faster

    hay all

    after getting to terms that the 11.3 will be out when its out id like to start a new game

    a few weeks ago my Star rating was 4* performance and 5 speed with 5 leagues

    fast forward to today

    its half a star performance 1 star speed with 1 league.

    its a laptop and ive had a problem before where it was running on battery mode but thats not the case now. ive heard of this Clear the appdata files and that because this will speed it up.
    can anyone run me through whats required todo this

    cheers

    Seem as your not moaning for a change i'll help

    Go to mycomp/localdisk/user/your user name/appdata/roaming/sportsinteractive then delet the fm11 folder in there

    you mite need to turn hidden folders on for your system if it is't already

    What else is running in background as the performace rating takes that into account aswell

    Check your laptop power options. Most of the time you run on reduced power unless on AC power to conserve battery. Dell, Sony, HP et al will all have some rubbish installed to overlay that which Windows already does, and this means that an unplugged laptop tends to preserve battery over pushing performance.

    Just googel 'gamebooster v2' it just shuts down programs that run in the background. Free up ram and so forth.

    I do. No harm in creating a faster gaming atmosphere

    I have a more-than-good-enough PC, which runs 30-40 leagues without any strain whatsoever, and I still use it, just because it's that easy.

    i didnt need it as speed was good but honestly run it even if your happy will notice a difference. i was skeptical aswell but i never play without gamebooster and drag it on the screen to it will automatically load it when loading a game

    Gamebooster is good if you have a slow computer, but does minimal improvement for laptops that aren't minimum specs.

    That program made me reinstall my windows 7, so make sure you know what you're doing with it...and don't download everything it asks you...

    If you know how to use a PC well, gamebooster is epically pointless.
