Miles Jacobson has informed us about system requirements to our computers for playing Football Manager 2009.
Graphic card requirements work only for 3D Match viewing option. So if you have a laptop with weak video card (like me) than you will be able to play Football Manager 09 as well but only in the old good 2D mode.
Minimum requirements (PC)
- Windows XP / Vista
- 1.4GHz processor for XP or 2.0 GHz for Vista
- 512MB RAM for XP or 1GB RAM for Vista
- Graphic Card - 128MB Nvidia FX 5900 Ultra, ATI Radeon 9800, Intel 82915G/82910GL or better.
- Intel Mac
- Mac OS 10.5.5
- 1GB RAM
- Graphic Card - Nvidia Geforce 7300 / ATI X1600 Radeon
And there are also some news about copy protection and ways of buying FM09 when it will be released. It will be possible to play the game without CD in the drive. It was the way of verification before. Since now you should go through the process of check just right after Football Manager 09 is installed. There will be 3 options to do that:
1) Through Steam
2) Activation via Internet
3) Activation via phone
Buying FM09 means that you will get 5 licences for the game. So it can be installed on 5 distinct computers.
