Is there a way to turn off dual core for some games with a command line or something? Serious Sam 2 seems to not like my wireless mouse with dual core turner on (even with the latest patch). I can turn off the dual core, but I dont want to Ctrl-Alt-Del every time I want to play. Is there a way to have it automatically do it on some games?

Yeah you should be able to add a line to the shortcut that will set affinity, I'm not sure how you do it though. I'll have a look :)

According to this you need a program to do it for you but Im sure its possible to do it without.

first, if ur running an AMD dual core, DL the dual core optimizer from amd.com

second. hit ctrl alt delete, hit processes tab, find seriousam2.exe or w/e it is. right click on it and hit set affinty. next deselect one of the CPU marks. then it'll run on one core

Thats not permanent, he DOESNT want to do that every time he plays.

my bad i skim.

there is no perma way unless u wanna mess with ur registry, and even then it'll mess with all other applications. would not recommend
