I do not understand the changing of GPU to Software,

if you have a graphics card, changing it to software means your disabling the graphics card which would make the game run slower

also im new to forum after many years using Neoseeker i have expanded my FM search and found FMScout :)

The reason for this is that using GPU assisted rendering also turns on some of the fancy visuals which aren't used by Software rendering, so though the GPU is assisting with the rendering there's also more rendering to be done. The difference in speed isn't huge but I agree with Rookie that Software rendering speeds up the game relative to GPU assisted.
