    I read a post some time ago about it here, but it looks like it disappeared... basically my fifa 13 which worked smoothly on win7 is now not playable on win 8 (it starts, I can play but keep on laggin' and freezin').

    Anybody knows how to solve this? In that post somebody suggested a solution... couldn't find anymore..

    Maybe you could update your drivers ?

    already updated to the latest nvidia drivers... weird fact: most of the time it lags, but sometimes it goes really fast (faster than the normal game, like super-accelerated) so I suppose it is a compatibility issue, not a video driver problems or the game wouldn't go so smooth occasionally...? Just my thought...

    Do you have a second video card in your system onboard?
    If so try to open the Nvidia Control Center choose "Manage 3D Settings" > "Programm Settings" > add "FIFA.exe" and choose and change "automatic selection" to your Video Card

    Ok you need to install the basic Direct X 9.0c Audio dll's directly into the System32 directory if I'm not mistaken since I have successfully modified my copy of Server 2012 to play pretty much any games.

    even if I installed direct x 10.1?

    already tried all the listed solution above this one :( maybe the drivers aren't optimized yet from nvidia. I have to try with another game to see if it lags like fifa 13...

    YES, you should install DirectX 9c beside of other DirectX versions. It's need by many games

    Perhaps I wasn't clear last time you need to insert the Direct X 9.0 C files into the system 32 manually.

    This includes Xinput.dll and Xaudio.dll at the very least. I had a torrent (scary I know) that had these graphic dll's in it which I manually inserted into the system32 folder which fixed the issues I was having with Orgin saying license invalid.
