Macbook Pro Catalina overheating issues

Recommended Posts


I've recently upgraded my 2012 MacBook Pro Retina to Catalina, and when running FM20 (with the latest Beta update or the latest stable update) it runs extremely hot, with the fans constantly loud. This is with different resolutions tested, and with the retina display being turned on or off. 

I know that this is an issue that has been present with MacBooks before and is as likely to be about the OS as FM, but wondered if there was any work being done to improve performance in the next planned patch?

I had run FM20 on High Sierra relatively comfortably before once the game had been patched post release. 

System spec is:

Macbook Pro Retina (13 inch-late 2012)

Processor 2.5ghz Dual Core Intel Core i5 

Memory 8GB 1600mhz DDR3

Startup disk Macintosh HD 

Graphics Intel HD Graphics 4000 1536MB


Thanks in advance

Hi, we can working to improve on the optimization of FM20 and will provide further improvement on future update, however the with your machine being relatively old it is likely that there could be some sort of performance issue.

We would suggest you to try out Public Beta version out and see if it helps for now and wait for future updates. - 


Let us know how you get on, please. Thanks.
