Screen Flickering


Recommended Posts

Hi, 

 

Updated the game to the latest update today (at the same time as windows 10 did an update) . Ever since then i cant play football manager as the screen is constantly flickering. Doesn't happen outside of the game or in any other game,  Looked and it seems others have had the same issue with older versions of the game, but i can't see how they resolved it

 

Yes my graphics card is up to date

 

Should note doesn't start flickering till i get to the home screen, adverts at the start run fine

 

Thanks for your help

Had a similar thing a few weeks ago. I forget where, but somewhere in here there is a setting that fixed it.

Somewhere in these links:

Don't have the Nvidia Control Panel, none of the other things changed anything. Thanks for trying

What game version are you using?- It should be FM 20.x.x

Has the game run smoothly before?

Have you tried reducing the graphics quality in preferences?

version 20.4.4

I had no problems before, I tried to reduce quality but nothing happened, same screen. I should note that it happens only when I run FM.

That is a fairly old card and is, I am sure,  below minimum spec for the game.  You can probably still get it running but may need some trial and error for best results.

First of all make sure that you get the latest card driver from the NVidia website.  Ensure that the NVidia card is set as default for the game and then reduce the graphics quality to low.  If there is still no improvement, roll the driver back to the previous version as that can sometimes help with older cards.

It was working perfectly before on high , it had a 5 star rating on the game, how can it be below minimum spec? I'm attaching you the screenshot.

I've got a 760 and it runs on high/very high for me so I don't think the cards age is a factor

I don't decide what the minimum recommended spec for the game is- SI configure the game to work with a range of cards but they decide what will be the best level of card to get the most out of the graphics- nobody is saying that it wont work with a lower spec card and others may well have success with it, but you might have to play around with the graphics detail depending on what else is using the card.

the problem started with the previous version of the card, so I thought the update would solve it

Maybe try and find an even older version

I've had to do this in the past

In instructions for deleting cache folder, in FM21 I found a folder named "Caches" (with an s, which I found to be a strange detail). Should I delete "Caches" folder?...

Though I play on an Alienware laptop (i7, Nvidia GTX 1070), my FM21 match engine still shakes and lags frequently. Believe it or not, if I open my Chrome and leave it running in the background, it sometimes fixes my problem. Bizarre... Would someone know why?
