System Requirements

The performance of FHM is highly dependent upon the league configuration you select. The size of the game world you create and the number of years you simulate, together with the system settings you select, can make the demands on your system vary widely. The game is designed to be playable with a full league setup on the minimum specs, but the speed may not be to your personal taste. Additionally, in the later years of long-running games you may experience some slowdowns and delays, particularly when reviewing historical records, as the game accumulates a very large amount of data over time.

System Requirement Notes
  • An active Internet connection is preferred, as it is used to license the game, for online play, and to keep online help files up-to-date. However, it is possible to play FHM with no Internet connection. If you have the Steam version of the game, please consult Steam's Offline Mode Support Page for directions on configuring offline mode.
  • FHM supports all screen resolutions of 1024 x 768 and higher. Dual monitors are also supported. Your video card must support Open GL in order to use the fictional face generation feature ("Facegen"), although some older video cards may have issues with it. Without Open GL support, you can still play FHM2, but you will need to disable facegen via the Facegen tab in the Preferences settings menu on the start screen.
