Presume you've all had to set affinity - although I think there's a program called 'Run First' which does this for you.
yep i had to do that affinity thingy i dont bother wit it anymore i just play, it usually doesnt give me connection probs only crashes to desktop...I HATE THAT....:banghead:
Battlefield 2 does have some problems with dual-core proessors. But I believe that version 1.4 should have fixed that.
Adam Dunbar;3259921Right, 3 out of 3 ain't bad Just out of interest, were any of yours processor upgrades, or were they brand new PCs?
Entirely new pc build.

FWIW, I've yet to manually have to set affinity for any game I've run.
And, on a side note, I've never had an issue with BF2 running on my dual core. I did apply the AMD patch (dual core optimizer or whatever it's called) if that matters, but I don't recall issues prior to that either. [QUOTE=Count_Chocu1a;3261733]Just installed my x2 4600 last night, tested with all games(including bf2 & cod2) & they run like a champ!!
Sweet! Is the performance as good as you expected over your old cpu (which was a 3700+ as I recall)? And yours was a cpu upgrade only, correct?
Isn't this supposed to be in the tech forum? Anyway Dual-cores are very good for games i have 1 and it runs like a charm
Download and install the AMD dual core optimizer if your having problems. http://www.amd.com/us-en/Processors/TechnicalResources/0,,30_182_871_13118,00.html
It is related to some games being incompatible with timing issues with the dual core. The patch fixes the timing issues.
Most games have played fine but I play EQ2 and had tons of problems with warping and outrunning on foot people with horses.
I have an AM2 x2 4200+ Runs all games like a dream. Cant OC is right now though..shity ram.
Cant wait till december..when i buy my ddr2 800 2gig dual channel kit from ocz :D
I've a few old games that I'm into but haven't got into the meat of them yet, so to speak. (eg Baldur's Gate 2, Planescape:Torment) Has anyone tried old games such as these or others on their Dual-Core? I've heard there could be problems.
Even if there are, you can just disable one of the cores.
