Essential improvements

Disable league limitation

Edit user.ini
Only if you have more 4GB of free RAM and CPU is significantly more powerful than the recommended one.
Simulation of more than conceived by developers amount of leagues may cause game crash due to limit of using only 2 GB of RAM by 32-bit application. Use 4GB Patch on game for utilizing more RAM.
If you start new game with simulation of absolutely all leagues in the game (including reserve ones), each individual save file will be 300+ megabytes in size. Many of them will take up a lot of memory on your drives.
  1. Open %USERPROFILE%\Documents\FIFA MANAGER 10\Config\user.ini with any text editor like Notepad.
  2. Add IGNORE_LEAGUE_LIMITATION=1 to very end of file.

Issues unresolved

30 FPS Cap on 3D Matches

While the game plays at 60 frames-per-second in the normal manager interface, going into a 3D Match caps the frame rate at 30. There is currently no known fix.

Very low FPS while list of buildings is open

In the mode of construction, when opens a tab in which can directly select a building and place it on the map, FPS drops to almost zero and becomes impossible to select the necessary building - a single click scrolls several pages at once.

Games with Steam Cloud support may store data in ~/.steam/steam/userdata/<user-id>/24850/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (24850) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
