Part 1: Things You Should Know
Championship Manager 03/04 will run without DirectX but you will not have any sound. CM does not use DirectX to display the screen. If you have any sound problems check your direct sound setup.
1.2 Memory and Performance
While the game will run fine in 64 Mb of RAM, we suggest you upgrade to at least 128 Mb (or higher) to enhance your playing experience.
Regardless of how much memory you have, you can maximize your available memory and increase the overall performance of the game engine by doing the following:
q Closing any open windows q Shutting down all other programs, including menu-bar programs like ICQ q Defragmenting your hard drive
Eidos recommends that you have no other programs running at all while playing Championship Manager 03/04. Other programs, including virus checkers, system utilities and screen savers can cause system degradation when playing games software and may conflict with the game for system resources, potentially resulting in instability and crashes.
If you are running the game upon a low specification machine, it is recommended that you limit yourself to a single active league and run that league as a low detail league for best performance.
You can turn any league to low detail by deselecting the ‘full detail’ column of a league in the Select League screen.
