  1. You previously suggested (due to bootlenecking) that I should couple a i5 8300h with a 1050ti graphics card, as options are limited could I couple the i5 8300h with a 1050 graphics card? (not ti version?)
  2. Hi Smurf After taking a look at laptop with an i5 8300h last night, it appears I am seriously limited to options with a 1050ti or 1060, as per your suggestions. In fact the only one I could see at my price point, would be the HP Pavillion which apparently has heat/temp issues anyway. Do you think I would be wise to take a look at a straight 1050, to see if that gives me more options?
  3. Thank you Smurf, that’s really useful info i really appreciate your help and advice
  4. I am really open to suggestions on processor. The ones I have not been happy with were all 13 inch so maybe I would get better cooling from a 15 inch? best for FM while being in a unit that is as portable as possible,but whilst also being the coolest to the touch, would be the ideal Have a budget of 1500 quid
  5. Hi Smurf I have had laptops with dedicated graphics (NVidia MX150) and these have caused laptops to run extremely hot 90 degrees Celcius +, coupled with the quad core i7 8550u processor. (this is a known issue apparently) So my post was trying to explore whether if I got a integrated GPU such as a Intel UHD 620, whether a) if this would likely be ok for a few future versions of FM and b) if it might help with the laptop not running as hot
  6. I know not ideal but to minimise overheating, would a integrated UHD graphics card, such as the UHD 620, last a few years versions, on lower settings? As literally FM is the only game I play every year
  7. Hi All Out of the below processors, which one would be best for FM? 1) i7 7700HQ 2) i7 8750H I thought the 7700HQ was considered the best, but the recent comments on i7 8750H have made me wonder Many thanks
  8. Hi Smurf I have already had that specific Envy one and battery performance with the MX150 graphics card, means you only end up getting a couple of hours (so I returned that one)... crying shame as a lovely laptop actually other than that The Huawei one looks decent
  9. Hi Smurf I am after a bit of advice, if you don't mind please. After having bought and returned the following recently: after having a MacBook Air (excellent battery life) and looking at the good advice here, I am stuck as to what to do?: Have tried MSI 8RC - Too big/heavy HP Envy 13 - Poor Battery Life My key reason for purchasing the laptop are to play Football Manager, with portability (Max 13 inch screen and around 1.5kg) and long battery life, as I would like to play off charge most of the time. I seem to therefore be looking towards something like an XPS/Macbook 13" with integrated graphics UHD Graphics 620 and a 8th gen i5/7 u series quad core processor (as these tend to have the better battery life), I completely understand that will mean low-medium graphics on 3D, but are you able to recommend anything else that would do me few years playing FM please. Have a budget of around 1500 max Thank you
  10. But the game is open all the time, i.e. I haven't exited the game just when clicking from the desktop on the open Football Manager application on the taskbar
  11. Thanks for the response, I am using Steam, but playing in offline mode. Will verifying the account status resolve the issue, as did not encounter it on a mac?
  12. Hi All I am new to Windows 10 and am playing FM17 on it, but whenever I click on the FM17 application on the taskbar from the desktop, I am suffering a lag of about 3 seconds, before the game appears. Minor annoyance, but does anyone have any idea as to how to fix this please? Many thanks
  13. Hi all What AMD Laptop Graphics card would be suitable for Medium level detail on 3d matches please?
  14. Is this a good deal, any good for FM? https://deals.dell.com/en-uk/work/productdetail/1n04
  15. Hi Smurf Budget is £800, but I would prefer to spend around £600-700 to be honest, with portability the main criteria, whilst playing 3-5 Leagues etc) I have been used to playing on a MacBook Air 11.6 inch (2014 Version) so am keen to have a bit more screen size, processing power etc... with watching 3d matches in low to medium detail, being a bonus With the above In mind, what is the best pound for pound laptop do you think. (value for money) Is this any good? https://www.amazon.co.uk/HP-13-ag0002na-Touch-Screen-Convertible-Laptop/dp/B07DPC4PLG/?ie=UTF8&tag=mashableblackfriday-21&ascsubtag=99b422ca-eb56-4110-b2f2-359d1228148e&th=1 This is the ideal, I know, but I just would prefer something a little cheaper. https://www.box.co.uk/9S7-16R112-255-MSI-GF63-8RC-255UK_2410406.html Would appreciate any other recommendations you might have
  16. https://store.hp.com/UKStore/Merch/Product.aspx?id=5ET23EA&opt=ABU&sel=NTB&_td_pid=1&utm_source=affiliate&utm_medium=cpa&utm_campaign=digidip+UK&utm_content=21288502&jumpid=af_3zuqfwpd4e/site:digidip+UK https://ao.com/product/4xx96eaabu-hp-laptop-silver-62632-251.aspx?WT.srch=1&WT.z_MT=drytinder&WT.z_RTM=PHG&WT.z_CN=304092&WT.z_AG=Forum&WT.z_AT=&WT.z_KW=drytinder which is the better deal for fm? (if any of those two could run it)... one is an Intel option the other an AMD Am after portability, would those graphics cards/laptop handle FM using 3d with say 3/4 leagues 10+ divisions and the 3d match engine of fm19? Thanks for any advice
  17. Thanks Smurf It's just a question of when I buy really then, what with Black Friday/Cyber Monday not long away... I wonder whether it might come down in price?
  18. Hi Smurf/All My budget is £800 and the key for me is portability, can anyone recommend anything better value, without being any heavier please? Before I plump for this one? Many thanks https://www.box.co.uk/9S7-16R112-255-MSI-GF63-8RC-255UK_2410406.html
  19. Thank you Snorks for the helpful response! Appreciate it
  20. Has the demo been confirmed? I would also be interested to know, as not played the game for a couple of years, what leagues/database etc, you can load on the demo? Many thanks
  21. Thanks Michael for the info, that's helpful
  22. Would someone please advise how many leagues can you run in the demo? And whether you can continue your save game and add leagues after, if you purchase the full game? Many thanks
  23. As per the below screenshot from the FM site, it has a separate tab for Mac OS The Mac OS says Processor of minimum 1.8 Ghz + Its only the Window version that states it requires 2.2 Ghz + So looking at that it should be fine right?, if everything else is above minimum requirements? is it? SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS Windows Mac OS X MINIMUM: OS: 10.10.5, 10.11.6, 10.12.5, 10.13.5, 10.14 – 64-bit Processor: Intel Core 2 – 1.8 GHz + Memory: 2 GB RAM Graphics: Intel GMA X4500, NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT or AMD/ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3650 – 256MB VRAM Storage: 7 GB available space Additional Notes: OpenGL: 2.1
  24. Hi Smurf Out of interest previously you said my MacBook Air i7 1.8 Ghz, from 2014 was below the minimum specs for FM19, am i missing something as just looked at them and it seems to be hitting the minimum spec? Am I missing something else? component wise etc?... i have 8GB RAM, graphics card is Intel HD Graphics 5000 1536 mb? As i said, am running FM17 adequately with a few leagues and medium database, would appreciate your advice thanks OS: 10.10.5, 10.11.6, 10.12.5, 10.13.5, 10.14 – 64-bit Processor: Intel Core 2 – 1.8 GHz + Memory: 2 GB RAM Graphics: Intel GMA X4500, NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT or AMD/ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3650 – 256MB VRAM Storage: 7 GB available space Additional Notes: OpenGL: 2.1
  25. Am I right in thinking, that the Demo would come out on the day of release also? Only reason I ask is that I wonder whether my 2014 MacBook Air, i7 1.8 Ghz, will be able to handle the game? I am currently playing FM17 and it handles it perfectly, so would also be interested to know whether people think my current laptop will cope the same with FM19?
