starting a save with over the recommended player limit

Recommended Posts

wanted to load every league however player count is around 132k , Over the recommended 125 limit. MY computer is very high powered. Im just wondering the dangers of going over the limit. is it processing speed, crashes or what?

I'm quite far over the limit with all matches set to Full Detail and in 2026 with no crashes or issues at all. Obviously it is fairly slow, but it's more the match detail rather than amount of players.

When I tried with mine, also having the 125 limit, I got crash dumps at times. Replaying from a month or so ago did solve the problem, but it was frustating.

Note tat my player count was 151 at the time, but if you are starting at 132 then I think it will grow to about 160 before it gets steady.

If have a good processor and 16gb of RAM playing with 132k won't cause crash dumps because there is enough memory, but if you only have 4 or 8 gb of RAM probably your computer will ran out of memory.

i set it to save weekly, just in case and for a while i may even manually save after each match till i see how it goes

You'll be fine with that setup, as ever when it comes to the size of your game it all depends on what you can put up with.

Personally I always run all leagues in full detail with in excess of 200,000 players & my longest save got to the late 2050s without any issues.

Oh Ross, I play with 125k database on a first gen 15 that runs at 2.5ghz or something and 4 gb ram ... you'll be fine :)

thank you. it ended up being 135k.

Make sure to get Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Slovenia and Slovakia in there for atleast loaded players in a custom DB, always seem to get great players/regen from there :thup:.

i have every country except singapore and i think hong kong. there were no ess logos for them. then in a couple other nations i had to remove the lowest league. It ended up being like 46 nations and 97 leagues.

Sounds good, where you planning to start? I heard Rotherham is a nice club to play with :brock:;).

i will post what i put in my career thread, this is my plan....

Having lost my MK Dons save due to my laptop HD going out ( let this be a lesson, always cloud save) I went round and round trying to decide my next save. I have a couple going but i needed one that was different and would capture my attention.I decided to do a world save. First thing i did was run over to sortitoutsi and download every ESS logo pack they had. After taking forever to install i loaded every country and every league into a save, Started it and then looked at every league and wrote down what leagues didnt have logos and then restarted a new save with only the leagues i had logos for. It ended up being 46 nations and 97 leagues.

I set my manager attributes as low as i could, Sunday league footballer and no badges. My plan was to holiday and apply for every job there was that was open and the first team to offer to hire me, take that job. After that i can be more choosy but the only rule i set for myself is i cannot apply for any job nor show interest. I also must no comment any questions asking me about interest in a certain job. So basically if they dont approach me first with a interview request, I cant apply myself. I thought i would have to sim for a while but as it turns out took exactly one game day and one interview to get that first job......

KFC Vigor Wuitens Hamme in Derde Class A was the winner or loser (depending on who you ask). Having never managed in Belgium, Should be fun. I could not find any kits for them anywhere so i decided to use the templates i downloaded and choose my own. It also had no city pic so had to google Hamme and find one. I just hope its actually a pic of the city lol. as i am just starting i will update this after i get coaches, any transfers and so on.

Loving this save. only drawback if there is one is how long certain days take to sim due to having details set to full and so many leagues running but i dont mind it.

You get used to it, I tend to have my tablet running or a book for those long processing runs.

Lol.. When I started playing back in the days I used to shuffle a deck of cards and play various games on my desktop..

I put my laptop next to my desktop. Someone came in my computer room and asked what the heck i had two computers running for at the same time

I run all leagues plus 69 other countries as supplied by Claasen with just over 330,000.

I then put the game on minimum details and voila... A great footballing World. :)

So that means that I can also run all leagues with i7 4790k and 16 gb of ram? Because if I do so, it says that I only have half a star for game speed.

It's just a matter of whether it's fast enough for you in real terms... try it and see, and keep an eye on overheating etc...

Ram isn't an issue, 8gb is enough for any database size ... and your processor should be good enough to run a fair few leagues..

People running all leagues will undoubtedly run into issues at some point down the road, but as I said.. try it and see.

so far so good. liking it. if i do run into issues i will just remove a few i dont care about. only downside is some days take a while to sim but to be expected when 97 leagues are running at once

That's what I have. Sometimes you get the odd day that drags like transfer deadline day.

I have half a star of speed it says but runs fine. The power one is full however not sure if that one changes

Superb - I'm away to activate the lot - had thought there was a reason - like file corruption or something if you went WAY WAY over - I don't mind a game that takes its time on deadline day - perfect time to put the kettle on, never managed in Slovakia!
