FM 2011 Official System/Specs Thread

2,120 posts in this topic

I have had a problem because everytime i attend a match my name does not come up when it say that i am in the stands watching the game and i thought it was a big problem in the demo, because i like to attend matches so that when the news come up and says that mr .................. was at the match but sometimes it does not do it and i find this a big strange about it.

Create a new thread in GD. :D:p

Silly question maybe, but what is the difference between window 7 home premium and windows 7 home premium 64 bit?

Many thanks

64 bit can utilize over 3.5GB of RAM, 32 bit can't.

not a lot mate... i think ishu's being a bit conservative..

with 4gb ram and that processor you should be fine with that many players for a good 20-30 years in game before it becomes slow

but thats just an opinion

Thanks - what would I need to do to increase it to 125k players?

You 'can' load 125k players but I don't recommend it. Daily player training processing is single core only so your hexacore won't help.

Asked this around in a few threads, people say that the gam does NOT get slow after so many seasons. I can't even find a logic why it would.

So in this instance it is more a question of how patient one is as opposed to how good their pc is?

Thanks Ishu and Welshace

Even no of leagues is dependent on patience.

oh thought it would be more than that:)

40 leagues is quite a lot. You can load more if you are patient.

Very similar

Acer - Better CPU, Better Graphic Card. (Both nearly unnoticable)

HP - Better screen, Better Build quality.

Acer is 17" while HP is 15". Depends if you are going to carry it around.

I would go with the HP just for th build quality.

Seen a few acers whose screens don't work at certain angles after a few years. :eek:

not to sound stupid but what do you mean by better build quality

Err build quality is build quality.

Acer has a plasticy feeling to it. The reason they have lower cost laptops is the use of low quality stuff.

Oh thanks. It's hard finding good value for laptops these days.

Yeah. Though you can build a monster of a PC for that money. Daz got one and runs all leagues.

it certainly does slow down... as someone who has run fm for years on systems at the lower end.... the game eats the processor up after a few seasons.. you can help by clearing the mem cache etc and in fact.. there were a few 3rd party programs to do this to help..

Don't understand why you hate that £435 Lenovo so much as it's better value than all of those you posted at £500.

I'm only guessing but could it be something to do with the information the game needs to keep in memory eventually eating up all the RAM FM allows itself to use, with the result that the game has to spend a lot of time paging?

How many stars you figure is still very acceptable when loading an x amount of leagues with a large database. I'm always afraid of going under 4 stars.

Star rating didn't work in FM10 and FM11 isn't out yet ;)

But there's nothing extra that has to be processed. Match reports get deleted, Leagues will obv be the same, no of players remains nearly same. Only thing that is "extra" is player histories and I don't think thats even paged.

How many leagues with how many players will I be able to run on this machine?

Thanks for your earlier advice Ishu, unfortunately by the time I decided some of the best offers had elapsed so I think I'm going to go for this one instead? Good shout? They will basically cost £330 each after a small discount and the cash rebate. Will it be hard wearing?

Looks good, just add another 2GB of RAM if you want.

20 leagues with 30 to 40k players.

I can run FM11 demo on my Mac (Snow Leopard 10.6.5) but once running it, to access other applications or the home screen I have to quit the game. This never happened on my XP. Any suggestions?

Is this just because you are running it in full screen? Press cmd + shift + F to change to windowed mode.

First one would run around 15 leagues with 80,000 players, the second would run 30 leagues with 60,000 players.
