How to Overcome PES 2019 LAG – Pro Evolution Soccer aka PES 2019. I’ve only recently tried it myself. After trying it, it turns out that the improvement from the previous series can be said to be extraordinary.
- Starting in terms of graphics.
- Motion or movement.
- And others.
Well, the effect of the increase is that the PES 2019 specifications (read: system requirements ) needed are now higher.
As a result, a PC that was previously smooth when used to play PES 2018 with medium to low settings, may experience lag, slow motion, slow motion, cracks, and the like in PES 2019.
How to Overcome Lag in PES 2019 Game
When playing games, almost everyone wants to play it playable, including PES.
A little note, in order to feel playable, PES games ideally need at least 60 FPS. Because if you get to the bottom, sometimes the gameplay becomes stuttering or shuttering.
Well, here I want to try to share some tips to fix lag in PES 2019.
Oh yes, by the way, if you have ever read the article ” Overcoming PES 2018 Lag, the discussion here is not much different in general.
Let’s check this out :
1. Update + Set Driver First
As we know, in a period of some time, the graphics card manufacturers have always meng- an updated version of the driver.
Its function is one, in order to optimize the game – a game that runs more stable.
For that, the first solution, try updating the version of the driver used first. Who knows, only with this PES 2019 can immediately become smoother.
But it doesn’t always have to be updated either. If after the update the performance actually decreases, you should install an older version of the driver. The point is to find the most stable.
After updating, do the 3D graphics or game settings in the driver. Lower the setting to make it smoother. For AMD VGA, the tutorial can be read here.
2. Turn on the V-Sync Feature
For those of you whose PES has 60 FPS +, but still feel lag, try turning on the V-Sync feature. I recently tested, turning on V-Sync can make gameplay more playable, you know.
How to set it can be through the driver. For example as in the image above.
Oh yes, for rigs with AMD VGA, you can try turning on the Enhanced Sync feature. If the rig already supports freesync or G-sync, don’t forget to turn it on too, to reduce stuttering.
One more thing, try setting the max FPS setting too, following the monitor’s refresh rate.
Especially for monitors that are already 75Hz and above, please set it to 75 FPS. Because even though it’s limited, from my test results, the movement will be smoother.
3. Set PES Graphics in Render Settings
Just like the previous PES series (especially 2018), complete graphic settings can be done through Render Settings.
- Open PES first.
- Then select a team.
- When in the lobby ( gameplan ), go to System Settings.
- Then select Render Settings.
For this one, please adjust to the specifications of your PC or laptop. Because there are several graphic effects that, if optimized, can increase FPS quite a lot.
- Two basic settings I recommend, try setting the Spectators to Low. Its function is so that if the celebration drops, the FPS does not drop drastically.
- Then also set the Texture Settings to adjust the VGA VRAM. Don’t force it, especially if the VGA capacity is only 1GB or less (it will often stutter later).
- Well, if before setting PES 2019 your FPS really isn’t playable, just try setting all the settings in the Render Settings, so Low and Off.
4. Use the Close Task Manager Method
- Just do the match as usual.
- Pause the game.
- Click Ctrl + Alt + Del .
- Select Task Manager.
- Then close the Task Manager.
- Finally, open PES 2019 again.
I found this tip on an outside YouTube channel. Who am I, it turns out that this method works to make my PES 2019 gameplay smoother.
But for PES 2019, which has been patched, when I tested this method it didn’t seem very effective. So, please try it yourself.
5. Use Crowd Remover
Most of the motion PES can be said to be in the audience. You can see at the stadium, there are thousands of spectators who have various motions. Not added certain effects. This of course will make PES so much heavier.
Well, here you can try an alternative solution, namely by using the crowd remover file (DT19_X64.cpk).
Its function is to eliminate the audience earlier so that the PC or laptop will only focus on rendering players.
From my test results, this is what it looks like:
The method is on YouTube, yes. Maybe you can try checking the PES Indonesian channel. In my opinion, this method is also quite effective for use on PCs or laptops with low-end specifications.
6. Upgrade PC Components
Finally, if you still lag, people will not want to have to upgrade PC components are used.
Moreover, PES 2019 is quite different from PES 2018 (in terms of specs), so the system requirements are almost on par with new games today.
Therefore, I recommend upgrading the components as well, if you want the gameplay to be really smooth.
- Just to illustrate, for components that are powerful but not too expensive, you can use an Intel Core i5 2400 or equivalent.
- For VGA, you can use GTX 750Ti or equivalent.
- These two components are more or less enough to run PES 2019 at FPS 60 ( settings adjust), at a relatively affordable price.
If you have more funds, you can upgrade to a higher one, of course.
7. Use the Set Affinity Method in Task Manager
Some time ago, while browsing on FB, I got 1 trick from the PES Indonesia community group (PES Indonesian Community PC), namely by setting the affinity in the Task Manager.
When I saw the post, I immediately tested it, and it turned out to be true. The stuttering I used to experience was pretty much reduced.
- Restart the PC/laptop first (so that it is refreshed ).
- Open PES, then open the match as usual.
- Open Task Manager > Click the Details tab > Right-click the PES 2019 icon > Then click Set Affinity .
- Disable CPU 0 (CPU 0 only) > Wait a while > Click OK.
- Right-click again Set Affinity > Then re-enable CPU 0 > Click OK.
- Close Task Manager and open PES again.
Take a look at the results. Hopefully effective.
8. Play at Specific Stadiums
These are tips to reduce resources from the game, anyway. Because as we know, the stadium in PES 2019 has quite a lot of options, especially if it has been patched.
From my test results, there are some stadiums that are quite heavy when played, and some are relatively lighter.
If this is the case, please test it yourself first actually. For me, 1 stadium that I think is easy to play is the Allianz Arena. But please just test first.
Is that the only way?
Yes. Just for the time being. Because so far, I haven’t been able to fix the FPS (like the anti-lag file in PES 2018 first).
If someone asks my PC specs, you can see in the first picture. I’m using AMD Athlon 860K + RX 560 2GB + 8GB RAM.
Isn’t that a powerful PC?
Yes, it is true. But when I first fresh install, to be honest, I often experience stuttering. Moreover, my CPU actually likes to bottleneck sometimes (the CPU usage goes up to 100%).
Well, to be honest, when I set the 4 steps above (except numbers 5 and 6), the PES that I played became playable. Around 70-75 FPS when playing ( the monitor limit is 75Hz + 60 FPS from the game if I’m not mistaken) and 45 FPS + when replaying (feels a little lag, but that’s okay).
- If you have other tips (eg with no crowd like earlier), you can send them in the comments column below.
- I’ll try later. If it works, I’ll update this article later.
In essence, to optimize PC games (including PES 2019) it is possible. But there are limitations, especially if the specifications we use are too far from the required system requirements.
But at least with this optimization, we can get a more playable FPS. It’s not good if you play a broken game.
