I thought that.

When you watch it in 3d it take ages to start up or it could be my computer.

FM09 is an asthmatic ant with some heavy shopping. FM08 is a leopard.

FM 09 is the most frustratingly slow game :(...08 was amazingly fast

Judging by the specs you posted in another thread I would say the problem is with your computer and not the game.

Agreed i just hope there was a version of FM 09 without the 3d so people with crap computers could play it at proper speed but i guess SI have to advance so no problems. Il just revert to FM 08 with data updates

It's a bit slower, for sure. Getting rid of the second match slider didn't help this. That said, it's still fast enough for me, running 12 countries.

FM08 is far quicker on my machine with the same spec as last year...FM09 is very slow on 3d, slow processing and stutters on 2d...was perfectly fine last year :-(

If your computer isn't good enough for 3D then you should still be able to play the game in 2D especially if you were able to play FM2008. Have you downloaded and installed the patch?

I actually have found '09 to be slightly faster, and more responsive.

Same thing for me FM 09 faster

Yes i have downloaded and installed the patch. After downloading the directx file from microsoft my game is working but what im saying is its really really slow. Decided to go back to FM 08 hopefully with some good data updates!

Unfortunately FM09 feels slower for me and still hell no idea why TBH (I'm not talking about 3D - I don't even use it).

Me to in 08 i played with 12 leagues. Now i'm playing with 3 in 09 and it's much slower. 8 hours played and still in season one.

My computer specs are:

Amd 6000+ dual core 3.1 ghz

3072 MB ram

nvidia geforce 7900 GTX

so thats not the point ;)

My system specs are fine to run the game, but with 3 leagues running it's stupidly slow.

Even on 2D it's unbearable

Im confused slightly...:confused:

Ive seen a lot of people on this forum suggest that FM 2009 is the best one yet.

However the comments in this thread that suggest it is slow and frustrating must surely contradict this?

Im not getting the game myself until next Friday.

So are people still finding it enjoyable despite it being slow?...Or is this ruining the game for you?

I find fm09 much slower and this is making me rather bored of this game now.

same here as i spend most of the time waiting for 3d to load. i play crysis warhead at the highest resolution level and runs 3times quicker than fm09 makes the game boring

FM08 by a mile, I find it annoying when I go to make a sub, or a tactical switch, there is always a slight pause in the game.

It wouldn't be so bad, but if you want to watch things in 2d classic view, for some mystical reason whenever you go into your tactics it has to load the 3d engine, which can take up to 10 seconds, even on my machine.

That and the code is getting so clunky that sometimes the interface, particularly on match days, gets ridiculously unresponsive, which I think is related to the dodgy threading coding problem that causes the game to freeze on some multi-core machines.

I think you'll find (judging from comments on these forums) that if you have a good, recent computer, FM09 is actually likely to be quicker.

BUT... only if you at least 4GB RAM, quick dual/quad core processor, a hq graphics card (ie 4850/4870), and fully updated drivers for all hardware.

I.e. all those people with laptops who could happily play FM in the past, are likely to be disappointed by the speed of FM09, unless they have a custom built machine.

I have all of the above, its much slower than 08.

Although I should also say, in between games, the processing time is exactly the same, or near as damnit.

I think most of your comments are spot on, Wakers...

..But if you untick the 3D engine in the preferences, surely the game doesn't have to load the 3D engine as you suggest? That would seem silly.

it's def slower but i think it's self explanitery. 3d isnt in use every moment the game is loaded so playing matches will obviously need to load it. FM09 is designed to work on high end machines or modern components.

despite what the min specs are, you need way way above them for a quick gaming experiance. if you think FM09 is slow wait untill next year and the year after lol this will seem like a sprinter on steriods.

Havent tried that to be honest because sometimes i switch between the two depending on the match. However i do find it silly that if you wanna watch the game in 2d its forced to load the 3d game engine when you hit the tactics button :(

reguardless if someone has a powerful machine or a dinasour 09 should be slower. more processes = slower!
