Amd Dual Core optimizer - Page 2

post #11 of 12
I have it installed, and have no issues with BF2142, other than the usual random crash to desktop. I would advise installing it, as well as the XP Hotfix for dual cores. I can't hurt anything. You don't need it, but it will give you better performence, whethere you notice it or not. Some games that are multithreaded may not utilize both cores if you don't have this software, or the microsoft hotfix. They didn't just release this software for no reason. They have better things to do

That's weird, the above poster says that the hotfix made old games slower? The sole purpose of hte hotfix was to optimize the older games for both cores......***?

This isn't ment to increase performance. The idea is, some of the older games (even farcry if you don't patch it) timings got messed up, and you would have to set the affinity to only one core to play the game properally. The dual-core optimizer should fix that issue, and seems to have done so very nicely for me.

BTW here is a clip of something that can happen without the patch

It would run like that unless i put fraps on which i do near the end of the clip, or if i changed affinity it would run fine.
