    I have the problem so i need to download “Hamachi” and i just did it. But what now? I still cant play multiplayer, what should i do with “Hamachi”?

    • Peppercookie

      there is no need for hamachi. Hamachi just makes a virtual LAN port for you and your friends on the same hamachi client so you can play LAN. As far as i know, FS15 dont need a LAN connection to play together, so hamachi is pretty much useless.

      • Lasse123321

        Well. Why am i getting the connection problem then?

    I have a gtx 760 which should be a cake walk for this game but I keep having stuttering issues especially when in the cab view with the lights on. Anyone else have the same problem? I have all the latest driver so that’s not the issue.

  • Tyler Mattson

    i can play the game just fine until i go into first person view, the game starts and loads fine but after about 30 seconds of playing the game it will freeze, once it does i cant change views, enter the store with “p”, or even exit the game without going to task manager. my computer is compatible with the game cuz i could play it just fine before the update and ever since this update i cant play it without it freezing. i checked my video and sound cards to see if they were up to date and they r. is there anything i could try?

      • Anonymouse

        You like other people don’t help others by saying you have the same problem. It doesn’t do any good if you tell other that you too have the problem. If you don’t know the solution or something that will help, don’t post anything.

        • Neal Swarbrick

          Well, THAT’S a stupid comment. Surely the more people who “confirm” a problem, the more likely it is to be a serious one and is, therefore, more likely to be moved up the list of things that need fixing.

          It ain’t rocket science . . .

  • Lithuanian_boy

    I have a crashing issue running a downloaded version of fs 2015 on macbook pro retina approx. 2012. Game has been running fine for approximately 12 hours of gameplay. Every time i run my harvester or tractor over a field for approximately 30 seconds after save in crashes and returns me to my computer main screen. Any common issues with macs/heat issues or is it the game? cheers

  • Marcus_VI

    I also have a problem with this game. Everything works just fine till the night comes and I turn the lights on. When I do that, the game crushes. I thought that the problem was coused by the LIGHTS ADDON mod, but it is not the case. With or without it the game crushes when i turn the lights on for the vehicles.

  • Dennis Börjesson

    Mu mousemapping doesn’t match my image. When I’m in the menus it’s as if the mouse is working in a window but the game is fullscreen so I have to guess where to click. It’s not a huge problem but it is annoying! Any solutions to that?

    • Steven Brown

      Same problem here. Did you manage to fix it in the end? Are you by any chance using a gamepad controller too?

      • Dennis Börjesson

        A a matter of fact I did. I had to edit the game.xml file found in the same catalog as the savegames.

        These two rows have to match your resolution:


        Gamepads, joysticks etc is a nuisance in my opinion. I prefer keyboard and mouse! 😛
