FM17 - Lag when clicking from desktop to go to open FM17 application

Recommended Posts

Hi All

I am new to Windows 10 and am playing FM17 on it, but whenever I click on the FM17 application on the taskbar from the desktop, I am suffering a lag of about 3 seconds, before the game appears.

Minor annoyance, but does anyone have any idea as to how to fix this please?

Many thanks

Assuming that you are using steam, this is normal as the game has to connect to your steam account, verify the account status then open the game.

Thanks for the response, I am using Steam, but playing in offline mode.

Will verifying the account status resolve the issue, as did not encounter it on a mac?

There will always be a delay after hitting the desktop icon before the game starts to load due to the interaction with steam and the account needs to be checked every time that you load the game.

But the game is open all the time, i.e. I haven't exited the game just when clicking from the desktop on the open Football Manager application on the taskbar

That sounds like your antivirus may be screening the game first
