Latest Patch increased Input lag, Fix it.

The dribbling feels a bit unresponsive compared to previous updates. The game was very responsive and better than FiFA 17. Please don't make it unresponsive as FiFA 17.

I hope you people see this and fix the input delay.

    Agreed. The game was so solid at release, there were just a few problems that could have stood to be slightly tweaked. But the gameplay is just going downhill with every patch now and it's sad.

    That was FiFA 15 where players were super fast like Robots.

    It was not the case in FiFA 18. But adding further la makes it horrible. There is a difference between real life and game. Having too much delay makes the game feel disconnected.
  • The game was good on release. It still needed some tweaks here and there like goalkeeping, but other than that it was enjoyable. Now post-patch, the RNG aspect is back as well as the unresponsiveness. Gotta love tackling my opponent 3 times just for him to retain the ball each time. EA rewarding bad players as usual. Also enjoy pressing pass/shoot just for my player to shuffle his feet for an entire second and lose possession. Wonderful game.

    I did some tweaks to reduce the input lag on PC. Didn't do much, but it atleast reduced the Vsync related Input lag:

    Settings in FiFA setup:

    Set Frame Rate to No Limit

    Settings in Nvidia Control panel:

    Select FiFA 18 in custom 3D Profile.

    set Max Pre rendered frames to 1
    Force Vsync On
    Force Triple Buffer On

    Settings in Riva Tuner Statistics Server:

    Set exactly as shown below else game will crash if you alt-tab or switch to window mode:


    Set The FPS to whatever refresh rate your monitor use when playing FiFA 18. Mine use 60Hz instead of 75Hz when playing FiFA 18. So I locked it to 60 FPS.

    That way you will reduce the input lag a bit. Note that if you already had Vsync off, than this trick wont do much.

    So, the game is still more fluid compared to FiFA 17 even after the patch. I hope it stays that way. Because I tried FiFA 17 and my God! the unresponsive controls and left stick dribbling was horrible. I couldn't play it. Even FiFA 15 felt better than 17 because the game was simply too laggy.

    The best way to mitigate this problem is by adding a dribbling and input response slider. That way people prefering laggy and unresponsive controls can enjoy while people prefering responsive controls can enjoy too.
