Hi everyone, This is a bit long but I'd appreciate some support and thanks in advance for taking the time to read. Background: Me and my mate have been playing career games over the network since FM2010. Sometimes we get together in the same house and play over the wifi network (happy days) and sometimes from our own houses over internet (huge pain). Back in the days the game used to crash a lot (unexpected error) but the guys at SI have made considerable progress so we don't have many of those game crashes anymore where we almost killed each other while we decided which save to load from etc etc.. Anyway we somehow managed to come this far from 2010. But this year the game has been impossible to play over the network for us. We click the Inbox, messages take ages to load, you press the Space bar and it takes 5 seconds for the game to take that into play, you pause the match to go into tactics and it takes just AGES- like once a match lasted 35 minutes on key highlights... I was just wondering what the requirements really are for the game flow to be fast enough over network play (internet, not local). For example, what should be the internet speed, download speed, upload speed? What is the minimum pc requirements? Is it possible to have the same game play feel on a network game, as if you are playing a single career game? Doesnt have to be THAT fast but still... At this moment its just not working for us and we would appreciate some support. What are our internet speeds and computer configurations? I believe our internet and computer configurations are more than enough to play this game over the network. But let's see what you have to say We both have the exact same computers; MacBook Pro (15-inch, Early 2011) 2.2 GHz Intel Core i7, 16GB 1333 MHz DDR3 Ram, AMD Radeon HD 6750M 1024 MB, Intel HD Graphics 3000 512 MB Internet speeds: Between 25-30 Mbps for Download and 7-10 Mbps for Upload. I think his was even 50Mbps/15Mbps. Rendering mode: Software Use caching to decrease page loading: Ticked Match graphics: Low Also see attached for Video Settings etc Where is the struggle? Whoever runs the server on their computer has no issues when browsing through the game or navigating from a player profile to Inbox for example - its almost as if you play a single player game. However for others it takes up to 15 seconds to load a page in the game which makes it extremely annoying. Sometimes you even disconnect. (speedtests were made at times when we thought the game was failing) What is the question? There must be something that we can do because at the moment its just not playable. We have tried all these below, so now I just want to ask: Are my computer and internet configurations enough to play this game over the network? If not, what should I upgrade? If yes, what are we doing wrong? Why should you write a reply if you think you could help? Since FM 2010 we had over 500+ hours played in our network games and unfortunately now we have only been able to have 150 hours of our tradition because we simply cannot play over the internet. Its just too slow. It makes us sad, really. Cheers for taking the time to read
I am looking to buy a new laptop for FM18. I was thinking the MacBook Air: https://m.johnlewis.com/2017-apple-macbook-air-13-3-inch-intel-core-i5-8gb-ram-128gb-pcie-based-ssd/p3081001 Is the i5 good enough? If not, if someone has a recommendation for a similar price (can’t go above 900) I’d be incredibly grateful. I travel a lot for work which is why the air appeals - need a lightweight laptop Thanks in advance
Found this laptop cheap in the sales and although I have a good laptop it's big and heavy where as this one I've found is small, weighs only 1KG and has 8hr battery life so I can use it on the train commuting to and from work etc. I don't mind playing on minimum settings but I do want the 3D match engine. Here is the laptop: http://www.argos.co.uk/product/5163519
