Have you deleted the ;? And what are you all running and have you noticed any real difference because I have not.

S!

Hi Havok http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I spent some time setting up the prioaff.exe and following the instructions to allocate affinities. I think I did it correctly - placing FB to run solely on Core 1 while the rest used Core 0 - and thought I saw a little improvement. However, I also started to experience the odd lock-up in game and some problems with Windows functions - possibly I set it up incorrectly - anyway I reversed the process back to the original and put the semi-colon back in conf.ini.

I run an AMD x2 4600. I just installed the latest (Sep 2007) AMD dual-core processor drivers and the results are splendid. I didn't run any benchmark tests yet, though Quazi reports a splendid increase in framerates in the BD track. I've seen the effect and also I find that my TrackIR now works better than ever too.

I don't know about Intel.

I fiddled with it HaVoK and have mine set at default for now. (semi colon IN)

I used to run with ; in front, but read you get less stutters by chosing a single core for IL2 to run on. I'd been running with IL2 on core 1 until yesterday when I installed the new drivers.

A real quick test in BD track showed almost a 2 frame increase in the minium when set for both cores over the single. The down side, at least for me, is while actually playing the game with friends I had lots of stutters and TIR problems.

I'll switch it back and see what happens, hopefully it wasn't the new driver.

I just installed the new chipset drivers too and gained a full 3 frames per second on Black Death. Thanks for the tip Brando m8.

I've used this: A Guide to Optimizing IL-2 for Multi-Core CPUs. (http://il2.netteq.com/Muliti-Core_Guide.aspx)

Must admit though, I haven't spent much time or effort in checking and verifying how much it sped it all up...

Basically: Used PriAff to set all utilities to one Core, use the processaffinity setting to have IL2 run on the other Core...
