    EDIT: Summary 27/09/2982

    Seems to be that all levels of system specs and both green and red teams having similar issues so I think we can forget the idea of this being limited to one group of system setups. We haven't had much in the way of concrete fixes either but these seem to be best:

    Force vsync off to improve responsiveness. Cap your FPS to 60 (or whatever) using nvidia inspector if you're having heat issues.

    Use RadeonPro to force vsync off and cap fps to 60 (or whatever)

    My RadeonPro settings (worked for me, maybe not for you)
    AF x16, Flip Queue 0, vsync always on (double vsync) without triple buffering, disable aero, force process high prio, enable overdrive and 'always use highest perfomance clocks while gaming'

    Some users reporting that this helps. Can't hurt to try.

    Original Post
    Hi all. If you could please post your system specs and also a brief description of any slow downs or responsiveness issues that you're having with PES on the PC. Or if you're one of the lucky ones, brag about how awesome everything works!

    I've heard some anecdotal accounts of the game playing better or worse on different machines and maybe we could figure out the determining factor. Anyone who remembers the INTEL vs AMD situation from a couple of years ago should see the potential value of this.

    I'll go first.

    OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit SP1
    CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 955 @ 3.3Ghz
    GPU: HD6870
    Native Resolution: 1980x1080 - tested many others
    Drivers tested: 13.9 WHQL, 13.10 BETA Sept 4th
    RAM: 4GB
    Other info: Tested various ways of forced vsync etc.

    Issues: Button lag, slow downs and stutters in spite of maintaining 60fps. Generally very poor responsiveness.

    my system is:

    CPU:Intel Core2duo @3.0 ghz
    GPU: Gt 220 1gb ddr3
    Native Resolution: 1440*900 - tested many others now on 1280*800
    Drivers tested: WHQL 326.01
    RAM: 4GB
    playing on 1280*800/medium/even on high i had a constant 60fps during gameplay(no stutter,butter smooth)/fps drops down to 30-35 in entrance scene and replays.i have button lag on player switch,player control feel unresponsive when turning.

    Input lag, jerky freekick screen and replays by default. All fixed by turning Vsync on radeonPRO.

    Radeon 6770 1gb

    1680x1050, high, 60fps throughout, 35-45 fps on replays.
    Input lag is game breaking for me, player switching takes up to a second.

    OS: Windows 7 Home Premium x64
    Resolution: 1366x768 on laptop display, 1920x1080 on TV, High

    Getting 60fps, but with significant input lag.

    I had severe stuttering and responsiveness issues with PES 2013 and 12 too, was able to fix them by disabling Vsync in the game settings and force enabling it with Triple Buffering with D3DOverrider. Now it seems there's no longer an option to turn the game's Vsync off :|

    Native Resolution: 1920 x 1080
    Drivers tested:
    RAM: 8GB

    Playing on 1920*1080 running High. The game seems to run on a solid 60 fps, but just feels slow. No slowdown during cut scenes or anything, but a slight button lag when pressing a button. Sometimes I have a rebound chance for an open goal and my player first wants to control the ball before shooting. It cant be my setup, I just think the game is unresponsive from itself.

    Issues...Slight lag in cut scenes/replays...player switching too slow...Tried v-sync on in Nvidia CP / also tried messing with pre-rendered frames & makes no difference ...switched to Assisted player switching in game & feels much better.

    If you play on 1 bar assistance or less the response times get worse. The more assisted you play the better the response time becomes.

    The same goes for shooting. The More manual you go the less responsive the players become. This game is disgustingly programmed.

    That might explain a lot, been playing almost everything full manual up till now. Will try to play with more assists, but that is actually not how I prefer the game.

    Raising passing assistance and turning off auto feint has helped me a bit.

    Issues: Input lag got better for me after installing the patch. Players being unresponsive still exist though. Replays and cutscenes run at 35-45 fps.

    Controller input lag, seems to be a bit more playable when controller input is set to directinput rather than xinput in pes settings.

    - Input lag
    - 30fps replays and cutscenes despite 60Hz refresh rate.
    - Slight stutters around the halfway line
    - GPU only using gaming clocks during replays and cutscenes - idle clocks at all other times.

    Bottom line: the game isn't just poorly optimised - it isn't optimised for PC at all!

    I got less powerful pc and replays and cutscenes runs at 60 fps. Repleys still look kinda shite in slowmotion tho.

    I think you misunderstand. My frame rate is a rock solid 60fps but cutscenes are clearly being rendered at a lower frame rate. Looks around 30fps to me. It's an optimisation problem.

    Fraps shows 60 fps on every cutscene as well for me and it isn't laggy at all.

    To me this seems to be the issue. FPS monitors are showing 60fps but the game engine, animations or whatever are quite clearly visibly not happening at 60fps. It's most obvious during corners, goal kicks, replays and cutscenes for me.

    I worry that there's some new equivalent of the old frame skipping option at work so that consoles dont blow up when the crowd is visible but we haven't been left any way to change the setting.

    See defade's reply...

    Despite fraps showing 60fps, cutscenes clearly aren't being rendered at 60fps.

    All cutscenes(intros, celebrations etc.) have no any visible lag at all for me as well, perfectly fluid.

    Replays are built to be in slow motion btw and its not optimisation fault why it look crap.

    So you are convinced they are running at 60fps?

    Yes, i play games only on pc and can define difference if it runs twice below 60 fps.

    I'm 100% sure that my cutscenes aren't being rendered at 60fps which is inline with the experience of most other players. I wonder why this isn't the case for you?

    I can confirm that replays/cut scenes are rendered at 40-45fps.
    Even with very powerful GPU, it stutters (and can prove it screenies too ;))).

    Gampeplay is solid 75 FPS though. Go figure!

    Using radeonPRO and forcing vsync on(no tripple buffering) , that did for me. Just tried to play without radeonPRO and stutters all over the place.

    Runs fine ingame, now it's rather fast and fluid on 0 speed rather than rather slow before.

    Slowdowns in replays at 37-40 FPS, Goal kicks after a replay and some cutscenes. Replays are shit regardless of lag, they are too slow but the lag makes them worse. I only get this lag after possibly 3/4 games and in certain stadiums like Juventus Stadium. Needs to be fixed urgently, people aren't making nice videos of the goals because the replays are too slow and laggy to show anything.

    Running the game on high with sweetFx settings and RadeonPro triple buffering on, haven't checked FPS but no slowdowns for me so far. Player response is actually ok, I've scored a few rebound goals when my striker reacted faster than the AI's defender. In fact I have more issues with Dfensive responsiveness/awareness than attacking lol

    No problem with cutscenes/replays slowdown

    Controller input lag is unbearable at times. Game itself runs smooth with no framerate lag. Odd thing is when I switch to vertical wide or any vertical camera(which is my favorite). This is where I have framerate issues. Very choppy and unplayable.
