Issues fixed[edit]

Performance issues[edit]

Encountering lag or poor FPS when running matches on Nvidia graphics cards[4]

If you find that during matches your gameplay is lagging or suffering from low FPS, try the following:

Open Nvidia control panel (Right click on desktop and click Nvidia control panel) > Go to Manage 3D settings under 3D Settings > Select Program settings > Select Football Manager 2020 under Step 1 (If you do not find it, click Add and add the game to the list)> Change the following settings under Option 2.

  • Power management mode - Prefer maximum performance
  • Threaded optimization - ON
  • Triple buffering - Off
  • Vertical Sync - Off

Click on "Apply" to save the changes.

If you find this hasn't made any difference, go back to the above location and make the following change:

  • Vertical Sync - Fastest

If the above hasn't helped, try this second recommendation instead:

From the Nvidia control panel, click "manage 3D settings"

  • Once the page is opened, click on "program setting" tab
  • Structure filter - Trilinear optimization - DEACTIVATED / OFF
  • Structure filter - Quality - HIGH PERFORMANCE
  • GPU rendering OpenGL - *SELECT YOUR GRAPHIC CARD*
  • V-Sync - FAST

  1. 1.0 1.1 File/folder structure within this directory reflects the path(s) listed for Windows and/or Steam game data (use Wine regedit to access Windows registry paths). Games with Steam Cloud support may store data in ~/.steam/steam/userdata/<user-id>/1100600/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (1100600) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
