Thumbs up OneProcessorLaunch Tool.....

Hi All,

here's a new tool for you that might help when running old, problematic games on a dual (or more) processor machine...

examples of such games are : Thief, Thief2, Thief3 (i think), System Shock 2, Dungeon Keeper 2 and so on...

http://pid.gamecopyworld.com/oneproc...h_v0.0.0.1.rar

documentation is included... as well as a 64bit and 32bit executable (for those purists out there)...

its relatively straightforward, and i just developed it for myself (and my brother) who like old games, but unfortunately the old games don't like multiprocessor pc's

feedback, ideas, bug reports and so on are welcome...

oh and for those paranoid people - the executables were scanned using virus total and it found nothing...
i also assure you the program is not trojaned, virused, or malwared... its a simple launcher...
feel free to scan for yourselves obviously... and i also only warrant the 'no virus/trojans/malware' for this program ONLY if its downloaded from the above url.. if you download from any other place hosting it.. its your problem...

Context menu (run with OneProecessorLaunch).

gui i dont think is needed, perhaps a wizard tool to make the shortcuts etc would do the job?... context menu is a nice idea though, problem with that is setting the working directory for the program...

Such a wizard should be also enough.

Right click on game exe -> send to -> OneProcessorLaunch

Hmmm, can't get it to work on windows xp 32bit, I have tried everything I could think of.

Ps. I'm not a newbie with .bat files and command prompt.

A game shortcut properties should be good enough to use.

Just tell it to load up OPT with flags to load the game also. *shrugs*

I havent tried it yet myself, but hopefully that idea will work with most people :P

Hmm, Well I agree that it does seem simple, but I simply can't get it to work, I have tried several times now, and all I get is an error message.

and the error message is?

there's only 1 messagebox block of code in there, stating if you have one processor using the tool is useless...

if you got that message, then its pretty rudimentary.... you only have one processor, so using a tool designed for multi (2 or more) processor systems is pointless...

I got that multiprocessor bug on the old unreal engine games, like Postal 2.

Going to try your tool, thanks
