Crap so i need glasses .I didnt see this thread.

Hey people got a question.I got a rather old machine and im not sure if i should buy this game or not.My current configuration is :

Pentium 4 CPU 3000mhz

2 GB of RAM

256 ram on the ati video card.

I run win xp sp3

I know i meet the minimum system requirements but does are irrelevant.I want to play with some 2-3 leagues loaded.Like for example Serie A,EPL,Bundesliga.Or Serie A,B,C or you get the picture.But the important thing is that i dont want to wait 6-7 hours to finish a season.

So can i run it at a good speed?Im ok if i cant run the game in 3d as i like the 2d version better.

5 - 7. But how can someone finish a season in less than 6 hrs. I take 30 - 35 hrs. :eek:

So its going to take a lot of time processing when other teams play?I dont mind the game taking more hours if i scout for players and what not.But i dont want to wait a lot of time when other fixtures are processed.So will it work fast or not?

I posted recently about the difference in speed I've found between FM11 and FM10.

I have found FM11 to run alot slower than FM10 and it makes my computer feel particularly unstable, despite running exactly same leagues at I did on FM10.

I know very little about computer spec, but I'm running 15 leagues from six nations on the medium database on the following. My question is, is this deemed enough to run this amount of leagues and would should I be looking to improve? Any help/advice much appreciated!

Pentium 4 GPU 3.00GHz

2.99 GHz, 1.00 GB or RAM

If I need to give more info, let me know how to access it and I will add it to this post!

I've got a new comp and I'm interested to see how this runs. I want a massive game world and, to be honest, I doubt I'll get past 10 years (or even 5) so I can afford to select a fair few leagues.

i7 950 (overclocked to 4 GHz)

6 GB DDR3 1600 MHz ram running at 8-8-8-24 timings

4870 512mb graphics card (soon to be upgraded to a 6970 but that's not needed for FM)

Those are the relevant specs.

There are many links on this page, try them out. If its good enough for FM, its good enough for general use.

What would you recommend I improve??

Everything.

New CPU will need new Motherboard, Which will need new RAM.

You can reuse cabinet, Hard disk, DVD etc

Currently have a Acer Aspire Desktop X3812

Quad Core Intel 2.8Ghz

4gb Ram

NVidia Graphics Card 128mb

runs game well, can load quite a lot of leagues and players, with basic graphics

but received a tax rebate today and have ordered

an extra 4gb RAM, and a Sapphire HD 5450 1GB DDR2 DVI VGA HDMI Out PCI-E Low Profile Graphics Card

Hopefully can run a whole lot more leagues and have better match day view.

Hi all, would be eternally grateful if anyone would be kind enough to let me know how many leagues and which size database I should select to run on my computer:

AMD Athlon II X2 250 Socket AM3 3.0GHz

4GB DDR2 1066MHZ RAM

ATI RADEON HD 4770 PCS 512MB GDDR5

WINDOWS 7 PREMIUM 64

I'm going to be using Uncle Ron's Non League edit so I can play my local team, any suggestions as to which other leagues/countries I should select to go with this? I was shown FM2012 by my friend, and, to my amazement, found it terrifyingly addictive. I bought the game for myself and my friends laughed, saying ''I don't think we'll be seeing so much of her this year...'' The only issue is, I have to admit, I don't really know much about football (yet!). FM2012 has got me into the sport, and so I need all the help I can get with league/database size selection.

Apologies for the helplessness - I've been Googling hard for days and not found any definitive answers. Very confused as to which I set to 'view only' etc. I want to do this right!

Many thanks to anyone kind enough to help a clueless noob =)

Yours is more of a gaming rig.

20 leagues will be OK. And I don't know anything about ron's update.

BTW Where did you and your friend buy FM2012 from. ;)

And welcome to the forums :thup:

Gaming rig = good for FM then? I truly am clueless, I realise. What size database ought I to use? Thanks so much for the help Ishu - and, yeah, FM2012? /facepalm.

No, sadly a good gaming rig cannot necessarily run FM well. Yours will do OKish.

Use a Large DB.

Load all the English leagues (inc Uncle Ron's), top leagues of Spain, France, Italy, Germany, Portugal, Netherland, Belgium.

The computer has the following attributes:

Yes it can 25 to 30 leagues. Might not be able to run 3D though.

How much is this costing you?? Get an custom PC if you have a techie friend. It will be twice as better.

Hi Ishu,

many thanks for your reply.

it will cost £329. How would I find out if it can play the 3D graphics? I dont really have any techie friends, but can you tell me what you mean by a 'custom' pc?

It is a new packard bell computer and in the shop it displays the graphics for some 3D rally car game and seems to show it can play this type of 'action' game. Does this help?
