    Jumpy Match Engine solved by moving the mouse

    Hi Jack, yes I did. I booted into safe mode, removed the old driver, rebooted into normal mode with auto Windows updates off and installed the new driver. The CPU updates sound interesting. I'm assuming they'll go out into the public beta first? I'll be spending this weekend checking and tweaking CPU and RAM bios settings to see if I stumble on anything. As ever, if I come across anything strange I'll report back. Cheers.

    Jumpy Match Engine solved by moving the mouse

    So, had an interesting few days. Graphics card died on wednesday night after I posted up those specs. First impressions were that maybe the lag was a sign it was on it's way out over a longer period of time. It was still under warranty so got an RMA and replaced with a Vega 56 card with a bit of discount . Fired up FM19 last night - same lag issues. So by default, have worked out it isn't/wasn't the graphics card at fault. Next move?

    Jumpy Match Engine solved by moving the mouse

    Hi Jack, Just doubled checked the power settings - all set to maximum. Since doing a clean install I can't get it to 'not lag' and it is lagging all the time. Therefore, I've done a screenshot of the Task Manager Resource Monitor whilst i'm browsing around in the game and one when i'm playing a match, with lag. Screenshots attached and labelled. CPU usage goes up from 3% to 4% GPU usage from 3% to 16% CPU speed from 2.99GHz to GHz Threads 1968 to 2067 Handles 76207 to 77818 Process 155 to 158 Cheers

    Yes I did. It was the first thing I checked. I will double check again this evening. Cheers.

    Jumpy Match Engine solved by moving the mouse

    Hi Jack, I've got back in touch with AMD and see what they suggest. I'm a bit nervous of the road we'll end up going down with AMD as one of their questions is likely to be whether this issue is isolated to FM19 or not. My answer will be it's isolated to FM18 and 19 with all games in the series before those being ok. For completeness and fairness I'll also have to tell them Pro Evolution 18, FIFA 19, Battlefield 1 and 4, F1 Race Stars and F1 2017 along with Planet Coaster suffer no lag issues too. If you were in their shoes, what do you think the answer will be? There is another user on here, whose name escapes me (I'll try and dig it out) who also reported the same issues as mine, with similar workarounds with an AMD card. Cheers.

    Jumpy Match Engine solved by moving the mouse

    @Jack Joyce Last night I bit the bullet and completed a fresh install of Win 10. I installed Steam and installed Football Manager 2019. At that point the only programs on my PC were fresh Windows 10, Steam and FM19. No antivirus, no other third party software. I still suffered lag that was solved by moving the mouse. I'm at a loss with this now, I really don't know where else to go with it.

    @Jack Joyce This problem is now occuring on every single camera view, including 2D. This is a new development since the last update. Just to reiterate, I have no graphical issues with any other game installed on my system.

    @Jack Joyce Contacted AMD and got a response: Tried this just - no joy. Also tried the CPU recommendation earlier. No joy. Tonight has been the opposite of last night. From first boot - smooth. Restart FM - Lag. Cheers

    Jumpy Match Engine solved by moving the mouse

    Thanks Jack, will try this later. Is there anything I can monitor to possibly highlight anything untoward? Also, with this being a Ryzen rig, again are there any tips and tricks to get that performing better, if it indeed is a CPU issue? Cheers Edit. One question I have on this train of thought is if it is CPU related then why does loading it with a screen recording software get rid of the lag?

    Jumpy Match Engine solved by moving the mouse

    Hi, I've had similar results with a much simpler method. Download Filmora screen recording software. Once installed, open the program and leave it idle in the background (ie. Don't use it to record the screen). Open FM. Play with no lag. It seems your method and my method are doing the same thing. I can only assume that both methods are driving the graphics in the background which is somehow preventing the lag. I can happily play FM19 like that just like I did for so long with FM18 but it just feels wrong that you have to download and run third party software to eliminate issues with the primary software you want to run, and as such am refusing to go down that road just yet. @Jack Joyce I had some success earlier tonight playing around with some settings in this video: I followed all of the instructions except for the first bit. I have the optional drivers installed. I rebooted as instructed. Fired up FM. Smooth, no lag. I restarted FM - still smooth, no lag. I restarted FM once more - still smooth, no lag. I rebooted the PC, started FM - Bang. Lag. Can now not get it back to the smooth, no lag state. I rechecked that all settings that I changed in the video were still active and they were all the same as when I set them. Cheers.

    Nvidia Response Stuttering / low fps (possible fix)

    Thank you sir, i've been through that article before (i've lost count how many times), but will go through it again incase I have missed something.

    Nvidia Response Stuttering / low fps (possible fix)

    I have googled it. No joy. Just wondered if one of the more helpful members of this community, with more knowledge than myself, knew anything about it. Why would I want to turn off threaded optimisation when the original post suggests it should be on?

    Nvidia Response Stuttering / low fps (possible fix)

    Whats the equivalent for Radeon? I can't seem to find any power options or threaded optimisation? cheers EDIT: Tried turning VSync and Triple buffering off - no joy.

    stuttering match engine

    I'm sorry but that is not true on my rig here. It happens on both.

    stuttering match engine

    I'm noticing a lot of people saying that the problem is returning after patches etc. Has anyone tried repeated loading of the game, reboots etc? I'm noticing some interesting things. Tonight I fired up FM19 Touch, full screen by default (1920 x 1080 Resolution). Started a new game. 3D engine perfect. Played for half an hour. No issues. Restarted just, loaded the same save game, same loading parameters (full screen etc, no changes to any settings, no other programs such as Chrome etc open in the background). Match Engine jumpiness returned and can't get rid. For my issue i'm finding the symptoms to be very transient and difficult to trace down to anything in particular.
