  • Bom dia a todos!
    Poxa galera, fico muito chateado quando acontecem essas coisas de lags, delays ou travamentos em geral. Tudo bem que não tenho uma máquina extremamente forte, mas tenho configurações necessárias para se ter uma boa experiência. No meu caso:
    Processador Ryzen 2600
    Placa Mãe B350
    16GB Ram
    Placa de vídeo GTX 1660 6GB
    SSD 240
    HD 1TB
    Fonte 500 plus
    Após os passos acima os delays ainda continuam, provavelmente não conseguirei jogar esse jogo no meu PC. Abraços amigos.

  • hi,
    doesn't work for me also.

    windows10 64 bits
    gygabite aorus gaming wifi5
    rtx 2070
    16GO RAM
    AMD Ryzen 7 2700x 8 core

    • Hi, in addition to the first method
      Select the eFootball PES 2020 from the Program Settings list
      Set Threaded optimization to Off

      After that, go to SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\eFootball PES 2020
      Open the Settings.exe and make the following two settings.
      Screen Mode: Full Screen
      Vsync: Enable2

      If still doesn't work, exit the game.

      Open NVIDIA Control Panel. You can download the latest NVIDIA graphics card driver here.
      Go to the Configure Surround, PhysX tab.
      On PhysX Settings, set the “Processor:” to your GPU.
      Click on the Apply

        • Hi,
          I tried all the tricks and possible settings in the world...still not working. I have an Asus desktop with intel processor I7-9700k 3.6 Ghz. An Nvidia video card RTX 2060 6 GB and 16 GB RAM...Pes 2019, 2020 and 2021 are running very slow, the players are sluggish and input lag is killing the game on both online and offline. Is there any other solution?
