  1. Hey guys, A couple of weeks back thiagotietze posted a tip on the forum about how to make FM run faster. This gave me the idea to merge all the little tips and tricks I've found over time into one post. Employing these things allows me to Play a game and exit it Browse the internet for a minute The game has processed and is ready for the next game to be played I posted it to Twitter the other day and got a great reaction so thought you guys might like it as well. For betting formating, screenshots etc. the tips can also be read here. # 1. Change rendering mode This is the simple and most important step for speeding up FM and will make your game run much faster. What it does, is that it will make the screen load faster every time you click on something. It does so by disabling some animations, but there really is no difference in how the game looks. The way to get the game to run faster is the following: Go to preferences and then the interface tab In rendering mode, it should read “GPU assisted” Change this to “software” Click confirm and you are ready to enjoy the game even more This is really easy to do and it makes the game much more enjoyable on low-end computers The tip is so good I really think it should have been the default setting and it puzzles me why it isn’t… anyway, on to the next tip! # 2. Change detail level One of the things FM spends the most time on is simulating all the games in which you do not play. While you cannot speed up the simulation time of a game, you can decrease the amount of games that are simulated. To do so you have to: Click the FM icon Click detail level This will take you to the detail level Here you can change “set international competition level" and "set club competition details levels to". I recommend changing these from default to minimum. # 3. Decrease number of leagues / use smaller database One of the easiest ways to increase the speed of the game is to reduce the number of leagues or use a smaller database. This is naturally something you select when you start the game. To ensure the game runs smooth you want to aim for +4 star in estimated game speed. My recommendation on a slow computer is to load the league you want to play in, and if you want to go good old journeyman on your FM game later, you can always add the league you want to play in. # 4. Switch off 3d graphics By default, FM will show matches in 3d. On slower computers, it can take a long time to load the 3d engine and you can significantly improve performance by switching it off. The way to do this is to head to: Preferences and then the match tab Untick the box “View matches in 3D” Click confirm I for one am old-school so I also prefer to watch the games in 2D. However, if you enjoy the 3D graphics and want to keep these you can improve performance by unchecking non-game effects where especially the stadium effects take a toll on your computer. # 5. Only watch key highlights By default in FM, the highlight mode will be set to extended. This means that games can quickly take 10 minutes. One of the first things I do on any Football Manager save is to go to preferences and change this. Go to preferences and then the match tab Under Highlight Mode change to “Key” Click confirm This will make the game show less highlights and only show the ones where there is a goal or it was close. # 6. Send your assistant to press conferences I for one am about as happy with the press in FM as Jose Mourinho is in real life. So, to avoid these, I just send my assistant. Instead of doing this every single time, you can send your assistant by default: Go to staff and responsibilities Set you assistant to go to press conferences **A word of caution:** This does have a gameplay effect and you should only send someone, who knows how to handle it (being media-friendly helps!). With that said, I rarely find press conferences to have a large effect and I have been very successful without handling any press conferences myself. # 7. Learn shortcuts This is actually the only tip in this post, where you have to do something by yourself. And that is to learn some shortcuts, which will dramatically increase the speed of the game. You can go to: Preferences and then click shortcuts to see an overview of the shortcuts. But from that it’s kinda hard to figure out what’s important so I’ll give you the top 10 FM shortcuts here (for the English language version of the game) Space bar: Clicks continue for you Ctrl+s: Saves the game Middle mouse scroll wheel click: Go to home screen Backspace or left arrow or back click: Go to previous screen Ctrl+f: Search F3: Go to squad screen F4: Go to inbox F7: Go to scouting F10: Go to schedule F11: Go to club information Ctrl+t: Go to tactics Learn these 10 bad boys, and you’ll speed up your game navigation dramatically. # 8. Use caching to decrease page loading times This is something that works in the background and will make FM run faster in general. And by default, it will be checked, however, if you have loaded skins you might have unchecked it. What you want to do is the following: Go to preferences and then the interface tab In the bottom left corner you have “appearance Make sure the box “use caching to decrease page loading times” is ticked Click confirm # 9. Delete or rename inbox file - Should now be fixed after the latest update Ever noticed your inbox in FM getting incredibly slow? The reason for this is that the game is loading a large file. To dramatically increase your inbox speed do the following: a) Shut down FM b) Go the the location below >On PC: C:Users[Username]AppDataLocalSports InteractiveFootball Manager 2017Preferencesversion 3 >On Mac:~/Library/Application Support/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2017/Preferences/version 3/ c) Delete or rename the file inbox_scrollbar_state.xml What you want to do is to to rename the file “inbox_scrollbar_state.xml”. I ususally rename it to “inbox_scrollbar_state_old1.xml” and the next one “old2” and so forth. This ensures if the game doesn’t work properly you can rename it to its original name again. d) Reload FM and enjoy your fast inbox Thank you to thiagotietze on the SI forums for discovering this tip. # 10. Enable Continue Game Timeout I saved one of the best for last. And especially if you play in windowed mode and browse reddit while FM processes, this trick will do wonders for your game. Originally developed for network games, this will make you go from one game to the next without stopping in between. Continue game timeout basically clicks continue for you. And if you enable it, the game automatically goes forward, unless you must make a decision. The way to enable it is this: Go to preferences and then the interface tab Under processing it says continue game timeout By default, it will say disabled. I have it set at 2 seconds, but you can also set instant, 5 seconds and 10 seconds Click confirm and you are ready to enjoy the game even more I can’t state how much of a difference this makes as it will basically take you from one game to the next. **A word of caution on continue game timeout** I do not use it when the transfer window is open. And the reason is very simple. If there is a week between two games, the game will likely simulate until it reaches a decision point. The most common decision point is the line-up before a game. So, if another team bids for a player you might want to buy, you will not see this until you have to play the next game and he might already be transferred to another team… … which I don’t want to happen. So to sum up... How to make Football Manager run faster: 1. Change rendering mode 2. Change detail level 3. Decrease number of leagues 4. Switch off 3d graphics 5. Only watch key highlights 6. Send your assistant to press conferences 7. Learn shortcuts 8. Use caching to decrease page loading times 9. Delete or rename inbox 10. Enable continue game timeout Hope you guys liked it and if you did, please leave a comment below. Or maybe you have a tip that I've missed? Either way, please leave a comment below.

  2. Dear all, First at all, I am sorry for my bad English. My games are running very slowly. Switching between screens take up to 5 sec. (Everytime) Loading the players database is taking longer (around 10 sec). CPU turns to 100%. (Not all the time, but specially when switching between screens) I searched on the internet for some solutions like changing Preferences in FM but also in the Nvidia program. I also re-installed the game, Drivers and Windows 10, but it didn't help. I have an I5 6600K, 16GB, SSD hard disk and an GTX970 so I think the hardware is not the problem. I started with 25 Countries with 30 competitions. The database was around 70k in total with Computerspeed 1,5 stars and Game speed 2,5 stars. I removed some Countries and competitions. but it stays slow. I run an database with 143k players. (3,5 stars and 5 stars now) Now I have an few questions: 1) Do you think it is the problem of FM or my CPU? 2) Can I remove players so it will be less? (FM say, you are Overwriting the recommended amount of 125k 3) Does any one have a solution which i can try? Thank you in advance.
  3. I am playing fm19 on MacBook Pro mid 2012. 8gb Ram. everything was running fine up until a week ago now match and game laggy/slow!!! think there may have been a steam/fm19 update. I did update my software on the Mac. checked my ram and have 4gb free. free'd up ram etc. been in game settings, set graphics quality to low but still slow! no idea what's happened but in the middle of a game which is going well for a change haha. surely with 8GB installed and 4GB free I should be able to run with decent graphics quality???
  4. Please help! I have an Asus RoG with Geforce GTX which says I should have 5 stars but after the update, the match engine is so laggy it doesn't really work. In Geforce experience it can not find the game, it is not support yet. Before the update, the game worked and now on the days between matches it works normally but during matches, the mouse and everything is about a second or two behind. Please help!
  5. well the title pretty much self-explanatory, I have 16gb i7 rams, thus at least the in between screens should work fine. attached below the dxdiag. DxDiag2018.txt
  6. Just purchased FM18 and it's performing incredibly slow. Takes around 10mins to load and load screens are extremely bad quality, resolution poor and lagging. Managed to set up my profile (painfully slow) and even when in the home screen it takes a good 15 seconds to load my inbox. I have a AMD A4-6300 APU with Radeon(tm) HD Graphics 3.7GHz with 8GB of RAM and am in need of help. Unbearably slow!
  7. I was playing a save from the start and this did not seem a problem there, but now that I started a new save, scouting players takes very very long time to get done. I have played few seasons now and some players that I put on scouting list in the start of season are still waiting in the end of the season. I do select between 500-1000 players in the start of season for different reasons to get on the scouting list and I have 16 scouts. What is happening with this? Used to be able to get a quick report on players but now it seems impossible to get anything.
  8. Mine keeps doing the same. The save bar stops half way and then its stuck. Have to restart the computer but then try and load any game and the game speed is running super slow when its should be lighting fast. Its reinstalled my computer several times and it keeps happening when im a 1/4 of the way through my first season, wasting hours!
  9. Whenever i go to the scouting page and click on scouted players my page freezes and my mouse turns into a football and doesnt let me click anything. This makes it impossible to look at the players ive scouted! why is this!!!??
  10. Hello, It is me again. Since the last update, I am having the same problems as of the beta. Linked below is the link to the other forum. On the release of the game and the update after, the game felt good and snappy, but now the game is laggy and crashing again. The game is feeling unplayable. Also attached are my crash dump files. Hope you can help. Kind regards, ManUtdFan26 FM 2018 v18.1.3.1045020 (2017.11.24 21.42.24).dmp FM 2018 v18.1.3.1045020 (2017.11.24 21.45.17).dmp FM 2018 v18.1.3.1045020 (2017.11.24 21.47.59).dmp FM 2018 v18.1.3.1045020 (2017.11.24 21.51.55).dmp FM 2018 v18.1.3.1045020 (2017.11.24 21.55.36).dmp FM 2018 v18.1.3.1045020 (2017.11.24 22.01.19).dmp
  11. Hi, I know that the issue has been reported before, here: and So i know i'm not the only one with this problem: the inbox after the latest patch takes up to 10 seconds to load, while it worked perfectly fine prior the the update. I've tried both adding the game to the AV exceptions folder and closing the AV altogether but i saw no change. I've tried deleting the cache and the preferences, re-installing the game and removing the custom logo and skin pack but nothing worked. I'm wondering if there is any way to downgrade to 18.1.2? When staring a new game thing seem fine but i'm afraid if a go a little longer into it will become just as unplayable as the first one and also i would really like to continue a career 4 seasons into the game, that again was playing just fine a week ago. My computer is definitely able to handle the game as it's brand new with an AMD Ryzen 5 1600X CPU and 16 GB RAM and i'm not using a large database or loading all that many leagues. So i would really appreciate some suggestions. I'm also attaching my Dxdiag in case you need. Thanks. DxDiag.txt
  12. Good evening. I can't play FM 18 normally one more time!! I already reported 4 errors previously! Now it's the fifth!!!! I swear I'm tired of this !!!!!!!!!! Why did you decide to launch an unfinished game ???!! Now after the last update (18.1.3) my game runs extremely slow !!!! See the video on this link please: And I also send my Dxdiag again! I hope you resolve this quickly once more!!!! Thank you. DxDiag.txt
  13. I had the same issue in Beta and it has continued into the full release. As soon as the game starts the intro logo's lag and the animation does not run smoothly. This continues into the actual game. When you need to type anything it will take around twenty seconds before what you have typed appears and you usually have to do one letter at a time if you want the right text to appear or it misses out a lot of the letter that I have typed. Going from screen to screen takes a really long time. I have never had any issues like this for any other games, and my laptop should be powerful enough to run the game smoothly. In fact in preferences it recomments I run the game at the highest settings, and when creating a game it suggests it will still run at 5 stars even with large database selected and many countries. I have attached my DxDiag Any help would be greatly appreciated as at the moment I can't enjoy what I am sure will be a great game! DxDiag.txt
  14. I bought the game with ipod but i'm not that happy cause obviously it is slow. So only two leagues can be loaded with two databases. Is it normal? Max. Of 10000 players?
  15. Hey guys So i just got the game and i have an issue with slow processing through days. I have a few leagues about 12 which FM17 could handle no trouble and i assume the same here. My issue is that when processing days the game will "stop responding" for varied amounts of time. It will then start responding again and continue with processing the days away. I have quite a bit of delay as well when switching around modules (tactics,dynamics etc) These issues make progressing in the game infuriating and i have tried everything to try fix it. Also i am running 18.1.2 and these issues occur from the moment the game has started. Any help will be appreciated. DxDiag.txt
  16. My lag that I'm getting in this FM18 is almost a game breaker for me. I'm getting lag on the calender, when I'm processing it goes very very slow, and on a match day the graphics are terribly choppy, even on very low. There is no difference between playing on High (which is recommended for my spec laptop) and Very low. Tried updating AND backdating drivers, turning off Sync, did nothing. Only got 2 nations loaded on a custom database, and have 5* graphics, and I ran FM11-17 smooth as anything. Logically this tells me it's a problem with the game? I can play Battlefield 1 but not this 😂 If anyone has any ideas or knows if it can/ when it will be fixed, let me know! Cheers
  17. I bought the beta version early and already for two weeks the game is very slow, a lot of bugs and errors, bad changes and bad graphics, today the official version comes and the game is still very slow and every click takes a certain time so it will continue. The official version came out and still the game remains bad !!!! For example, when I click on a team report like in the picture, I have to wait a minimum of 15 seconds until it progresses and show me the team report. It's tired and exhausting, you can not play like that, the game is very bad !!!
  18. FM18 is impossible to play this year, i've had it since 2006 and its ran perfectly every year. This year it is just too slow to play, waiting around 5-10 seconds a click, up to 5 minutes to process a day. It's completely too slow when going into a game with the 3-d aspect of a dressing room and loading stadiums, when i much prefer it in 2-d. In previous years you could turn off 3-d matches where now there is compulsory split scenes where it has to load up. With other members of this community stating they're running slow too, it's all well and good stating computers and laptops may not be up to the highest spec, but they've ran perfectly for the past decade. It's frustrating when I just want to play!
  19. Hello, like many others, I'm experiencing some very slow game play at times and lots of lag in the match engine. I've included my DxDiag so you can take a look at it. Only use Windows Defender for anti-virus, so that's not supposed to give any conflicts I guess? DxDiag.txt
  20. Unfortunately i've been having really slow reaction time, for some reason my computer can't handle the game even when it's on low graphics. In every other version of the game I own, it works completely smoothly. Attached is my Dxdiag, DxDiag.txt
  21. My laptop is not that bad and easily meets the requirement (nvidia gtx 850M, 4 gb ram) but the game is running very slow it takes 5 sec when click a player's profile I don't know why. And it's not about the leagues I added. My ram isn't enough ? Basically I can't play. DxDiag.txt
  22. The game is very slow, everything is slow every click on a slow mouse, the days pass slowly, every day 5 minutes, how do you fix it?
  23. Hello Neil, The lag when switching screens after clicking on any player's name still exists with the latest update. However, it has been reduced from 4-5 seconds to 2-3 secs. Hoping it will be eliminated in the near future, as it makes playing the game rather irritating. Thanks
  24. Hello, I recently joined the beta, and noticed annoying 1.5-2 second delay between certain selection processes i.e clicking on a player in a squad to bring up their profile. If you're aware of this issue and are working to towards a fix that would bring it inline with FM17's speed; that's great! My system: DxDiag.txt
  25. It's very slow when you hit the home button in the sidebar menu, most others take fraction of a second maybe a second at most, this takes over a second, maybe 2 or 3 in some cases. HOME <-- Inbox Squad etc
