View Full Version : Computer Can't Handle It(GW ect.), try FsAutostart

Some programs run on your desktop, such as Weather programs, Live Update, File Sharing programs(Limewire,Morpheus ect.), and messengers.
You don't need these while Patrolling the Atlantic and saving the world.
You run this program, it creates new icon for SH3 or any other program you wish, and shuts down all applications you choose. When you close SH3 and go back to desktop, FsAutostart restarts all shut down applications.
FsAutostart (http://www.kensalter.com/fsautostart/)

It was first designed for Flight Simulator 2002 I think(Hence the name "FS"Autostart). Helps Game run smoother. It seems to work for me,and I just installed GW 1.0 .

Have been useing this utility for some time now. I came across it on the IL2 forums, and started useing it for my flight sims.

Also look into the latency tweak utility for your graphics card as well. This little gem allows you to adjust the latency of your graphics card. Usually there is competition between your GPU, and your APU. They both need to communicate so to speak with the CPU. The problem is, the GPU likes to hog all the CPU's attention. By lowering the GPU's latency to that of your APU's, you could eliminate studders and pauses in game.

Cool, thank you. This turned out as a "Do Unto Others" type Post. I tried to help other Captains, and you in return gave me and them good advice.

I did a search for latency tweaks and found various programs. However, I have no clue about how to use them, the dangers etc.

Just do a search for PCI Latency Tool, and you're on your way.
