- With the testing help from wombat778

Affinity management changed: when your cpu have more than 2 core, all the core will be set after a delay (default is 30s)

You can change this value as you want

when dcs.exe start, only one core is working then after 30s DcsMax will set affinity on all others cores

this will optimize your FPS (thx to wombat778 for the tips)

IT WORKS !!

 

confirmed through task manager that 4 cores were "on"

 

I will report on framerate later as I'm running abris and shkval on 2sd monitor and I lost my fps counter . :(

 

I had tried Jesse's app before and was getting about 10% better FPS by setting affinity manually through the task manager with the core i7 .

 

thanks for your work Skypat

Gros Merci,

 

Skypat, I have a special request. I know your tool is name DCSMax, but would you, be willing to add Flaming Cliff to this application? Since it’s the "same" game engine I think it would benefit LO users.

 

I would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks in advance for this tool.:thumbup:

Oh my god thank you so much.

It semms that DCS now uses all cores on XP 32Bit.

That would be freakin awesome xD

 

I will continue testing now.

 

Edit: No, it doesn't. But it's useful, yes.

Never mind about the flaming cliff request. I tried and modified the DSCAff script from one of the members, to reflect lockon.exe. I'm sad to report that I cannot see any differences with lockon. I also tried Task Assigned from http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/bang-dual-processing-buck,815.html

 

No luck…:cry: Unless I'm doing something wrong...

Better load times even... THANK YOU!!!!

 

Thanks for the great tool Skypat!!!!

 

I was going to sit down with VS2005 tonight and write my own tool for doing just this. Yours is alot better than what I had in the planning stage, love the simplicity of the UI! The track IR launch is just a stroke of genius.

 

Now, for the nitty gritty....

 

On a Vista x64 box

AMD Phenom 9950 running stock at 2.6

4GB DDR2 @533MHz

HSI 4870 512MB (at stock

2 250GB WD2500AAJS in Raid 1

 

From Launch to sitting in cockpit and turning on the DC Ground power in Mission "Shooting Range"

Load times are

1:54 on a fresh boot without your tool

1:36 on a fresh boot with your tool

56 seconds on a DCS Full relaunch without your tool

49 seconds on a DCS FUll relaunch with your tool

In short :thumbup:

 

I only built this PC 2 weeks or so ago and havent done ANY frame rate testing.....

 

Thank you again for a nice tool.

AMD Phenom 9950 @2.6GHz, HSI 4870 512M, 4GB DDR2 @533MHz, Raid 1 array (250GB), Vista x64, TrackIR 4, Saitek - EVO Force, X52, Rudder Pedals, Flight Yoke, and a FPS type game pad somewhere...

I get the same error :(

Tried both the "test.exe" and version 1.1 of this program.

 

I get: "Error: Variable used without being declared!" as well. This also happens with "Jesse's" Affinity tool so it must be a problem with my two seperate physical quad-core processors.

My DCS wish list: Su25, Su30, Mi24, AH1, F/A-18C, Afghanistan ...and frankly, the flight sim world should stop at 1995.
