FIFA 11 REAL PERFORMANCE OPTIMIZER by Doctor+ Productions This is a modded/optimized platform.ini, and reduce any FIFA 11 lags. Details: Modded string on new platform.ini: AUDIO_CPU_LOAD_LIMIT = 10 //10 is new value //30 is original value 30 is the FIFA 11 original value (30%)..too hight, and this setting cause any lags on the gameplay! This value is the load limit of the central processing unit (CPU) for the audio sound general (also during the gameplay), and it is an percent value!! ....for me 30% is too high, and reducing the value increase the FIFA 11 general performance!! With 10% audio CPU max load limit, now you have available +20% of CPU (central processing unit) for the other features game!! Performance effect is on the menu and during the gameplay!!!

Others important tips from Ian Jarvis: Video Card Driver Update Ensure you have the latest video driver installed for your card and if you are experiencing problems with your video card and FIFA 11, try updating your video card driver by downloading the latest driver available from the video card manufacturer. If there is no improvement, try using the latest driver provided by the video chipset manufacturer. Your video card chipset is the video-processing chip located on your video card. If there is no information in your video card manual or website, check the video card for an identifying chip with the chipset manufacturer's name on it. Min Specs The game will not run if you do not have at least these specs on your PC: CPU with Dual core processor (Core duo 2 or better) Intel Core2Duo @ 1.8Ghz on Windows XP / Windows Vista / Windows 7 1 Gigabyte of RAM (2 GB required for Windows Vista / Windows 7) DirectX® 9.0c Compatible 3D accelerated 256 MB video card or equivalent (must support Shader Model 3.0 or above - If your machine doesn't have this you will recieve the E0001 error message.) DirectX® 9.0c Compatible Sound Card 512Kbps or greater broadband connection for online gameplay MS compatible mouse Keyboard Please note that 16 bit color is not supported And additional space required for saved games and DirectX® 9.0c installation (no for Windows 7) Required Operating Systems: Windows XP SP2, Windows Vista, Windows 7 Note that Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows 2000, Windows ME, and Windows NT 4.0 are not supported. Required Software: DirectX® 9.0c NOTE: If you are running the game on a 1st generation Pentium Dual Core machine you may experience occasional lag in higher traffic situations (Ex: Corner Kicks). Memory Requirements: FIFA 11 requires a minimum of 1 GB of RAM to run the game (2 GB required for Windows Vista / Windows 7). Recommended Chipsets: NVIDIA GeForce® 6xxx series (6800 or greater) NVIDIA GeForce® 7xxx series NVIDIA GeForce® 8xxx series NVIDIA GeForce® 9xxx series NVIDIA GeForce® GTX 2xx series ATI Radeon™ X1600 (X1600 or greater) ATI Radeon™ X1800 ATI Radeon™ X1900 ATI Radeon™ X1950 ATI Radeon™ HD 2xxx series ATI Radeon™ HD 3xxx series ATI Radeon™ HD 4xxx series I think its important to note that not all cards within these series of cards are created equal and you may have to do some fine tuning within the fifaconfig.exe file. You can try turning the anti-aliasing (MSAA Options) or reducing the resolution to make the game play smoother. Please note that NVIDIA GeForce 7300,8100,8200,8300 and 9300, ATI Redeon HD3200 and HD4350 are below minimum system requirement. NOTE**: The screen may flicker whenever a screen transition happens in the game on all OS' for the following video cards, ATI Radeon HD 3870 X2 ATI Radeon HD 4870 Crossfire ATI Radeon HD 4870 X2 Turning on MSAA makes the issue worse. We expect this issue occurs on all ATI video cards in Crossfire configuration (including single cards). Occasional flickering may be addressed by disabling the Catalyst A.I setting in the ATI control panel.
