Issues unresolved

Crossfire microstutter

Users with an AMD Crossfire setup will suffer from microstutter. The frame pacing drivers do not address frame pacing in DirectX 9 games and hence this game still suffers from it. It is therefore recommended that you disable Crossfire for this game via the Catalyst Control Center.[citation needed]

Issues fixed

Game does not start

Run fifa14.exe in compatibility mode for Windows XP SP3[citation needed]
