controlling the CPU.


Recommended Posts

Hi.

(ALEX)..thats the problem im facing at the moment.it sometimes slows down and lags..not continuously enough to ruin the game.

(RGABBARD)..my os is windows7 64-bit home premium.

sometimes just logging out and in solves the issue.

I just wondered if giving the game process a high priority in the task manager would help.?

thanks.

Depending on the way the application is written you can set priority and affinity in task manager. If it's a single thread app, you can set affinity to a certain core provided you have more than one. Otherwise setting priority may help, though is not guaranteed.

what are the rest of the specs ?

cpu/ram/mb/background processes running/make& model of machine/do you have a video card ?

the reason for the slowdown/spike may be due to "the horse is too small to pull the wagon" .

turning off all unessential background services/processes is a place to start .

resources are kind of like pie dough ... you can only spread it so thin . ;)
