This is not the place to discuss this.

 

The difference is huge, depending on what you run.

RA2/YR both use a single core. Battlefield 3/4 take up to 4 from what I remember. I also recall a test done by someone, trying to run BF4 on a single core PC, the game didn't even start.

Multicore PC can make some older games run too fast, which means that sometimes you won't even see what is happening in the game or the controlling will be extremely hard. To be more precise and shorter the game will be unenjoyable. To fix this you have to turn down some cores, so the game will run smoothly.

I so would play a game where that happens, because I myself never seen that and I have a multicore PC for years now.

It doesn't happen with every game. Once a guy was complaining about that MO3 runs too fast and it turned out that he has 4 core PC.

 

It also happened to me. I have dual core and Painkiller and Gothic 3 run extremely fast.

That's actually not the reason. The games that do this were coded to run at a maximum speed based upon CPU speed. They ran slow smoothly because the clock speeds were much slower and you had fewer dedicated resources for one task. With no resources being hogged by the operating system and with resources and two to three times the processor speeds of the recommended specifications, the games run too fast. A game that does this is UT Gold.

I'm betting it was moved so your response was for naught.

No one said anything, so I could only really assume.  Oh well.  Proceed.

Task Manager -> Find a process -> Right click on it and find "Colligation" (?) -> Turn off one of the cores.

And that would slowdown mental omega to be played at normal speeds right?Because in skirmish speed 5 is insane but when i see the streams the speed is actualy smooth and not sped up.Also,online will the speed of my multicore pc be noticable to the other player if he has a single core pc?
