Each version of Football Manager adds more leagues, more players and more features, including the new 3D Engine. All of this makes FM a very demanding game on your Computer, here are some tips to help speed up your game and optimize game speed.

In Game Tips

1: If your current game is running slow, try reducing the # of leagues that you are running. Do not expect to run 20 playable leagues on a machine with 2GB Ram and a 3GHZ P4 Processor

2: If you want extra players in your database, but do not want to run extra leagues,in the create a game screen, you can tell the game to load all players from a certain nation

If you load too many countries though, you will experience slowdown, so be selective!

3:Once you have loaded up your game, Options-Detail Level and set Club and International Fixtures to Minimum, you can customize this to your viewing needs

If you dont watch any other games or highlights of any team but your own, you can make the game run faster by not making the game record each game

4: If you play on a sizable enough of a monitor, you can play in windowed mode Options-Display and Sound-Display Mode-Windowed

5: You can disable player and newgen faces Options-Display and Sound- Show Player and Staff Pictures-None

Computer Tips

1: To Run FM well, you need Good RAM, CPU(Processor) and a Video Card(3D Match Engine), If you want FM 09 to run fast you should have at least 2GB Ram and a Dual Core Processor at the Minimum!, if your computer does not meet both of these requirements, expect FM to not run very well

2: In windows, you can adjust the priority of FM, I do not recommend doing this unless you are just running fm and nothing else. CTRL ALT Delete-Processes,FM.Exe, right click, set priority and change to above normal or high

3: Viruses and Spyware can slow any system down to a crawl, run a spyware and virus scan, if you do not have these programs, I would suggest downloading Spybot Search and Destroy, CC Cleaner[1] and AVG Anti Virus[2]

4. Turn off programs that are not in use as they can use up processing and ram power, this can include anti-virus and firewalls
