One of the FM17 qualities is the ease with which runs on any computer and this year things have not changed in this chapter.
The system requirements for the new Football Manager 2017 have been revealed and they continue to be very accessible for any low-cost computer.
The full version of the game is available for the following systems: Windows Vista, 7, 8, 10 and Mac OS X 10.7, 10.8, 10.9, 10.10, 10.11, Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and Linux.
Check the image below with all the information about the minimum requirements to run the game:
Note: Graphics cards older that those mentioned in these system requirements and laptop chipsets do not work with the 3D match engine. Alternatively, for those with old and weak cards should switch to the 2D mode, or enable the option to only display the comments during the games.
If you’re using an Windows system along with that type of cards make sure you install the DirectX 9.0 SDK because it is required.
As we can see it is a very accessible game for any minimally recent computer. FM 2017 as well as its predecessors is a game that focuses on the use of your processor and your memory ram. The use of your graphics card is minimal and will only be exploited if you watch your matches through the 3D match engine.
Do not forget that these minimum requirements can rise to higher demands if you select a large number of playable leagues as well as the size of the database that will dictate the number of players you wish to see loaded in your new career.
Every year, when you start a new career and during the selection of those leagues you have at your disposal on the bottom of this screen a small star rating from one to five in which serves to help you guide in relation to the performance that your system will have during your career. You should focus on the “estimated game speed”, since this data will tell you the speed at which the game will be processed during your career.
You should not forget that the game has a tendency to slow down as you advance through several seasons. So, in order to have a smooth and fast gaming experience try to select the leagues that you want and tries to achieve values equal or superior to three stars on the “estimated game speed”.
