KO will be happy as a pig in shit on one core. It was an old fix that we had to use years ago. The last of the P4 chips with the 775 socket were dual cores so we came up against this problem.
Remember KO/KE was made so long ago the machines most of us use are better specs than the orginal servers the game was run on.
ok basically what you are telling windows is that KO is to only see and use core 0 or your 2. It will run like an early P4 chip. The effect it would have on your OS would that you would find the system would ( is remaining one 1 core ) run as a high cpu load and would slow down. XP / Vista and 7 normally only use cores 0 and cores 1 for normal jobs as it will try and split the load. Even if you have 4 or 8 cores windows will still behave the same.
ok i got you, ill try to do that when ko4life server will open
i got same thing with my laptop, and i got 1 program what helps abit , AMD dual core optimizer but it still sometimes goes faster when theres a fps drop
It's a common problem, some games run extremely fast if you have multicore system. You can set affinity every time to CPU 0 to solve this problem or use imagecfg tool to set it permanent.

im having kinda problem , since i cannot set affinity anymore, i get this error saying something that its not allowed or something like that , mby it depends on server , dnno i rly hope i can set it on ko4lifeko
i tried to do what u said with task meneger in Royal KO, but it says acces denied or something like that
yup, it fixed it, but the problem is that if i don't do it right after i open the ko.exe, it says acces denied :X
i had this problem with aion and iv always had it with sexyko... though now i cant play sexyko coz i cant set the anfinity coz they took sexyko off proccesses ;p
unless theres another way to set anfinity without task manager?
anyways i hope ko4life is on proccesses when its up
it doesnt show on the processes list? what happens when you rightclick it under applications and select go to process?you can probably find a program that does it or you can try something like this
To use this tool to set affinity masks for an executable, type the following command in a command prompt window or run dialog:
imagecfg -a 0x1 c:\path\to\file.exe If the above didnt work, try typing the following:
imagecfg -u c:\path\to\file.exe imagecfg -a 0x1 c:\path\to\file.exe
- 0x1 = CPU0 (first logical/physical CPU)
- 0x2 = CPU1 (second CPU)
- 0x3 = CPU2 (third CPU)
note i used my pro-google skills for this
