Windows 7: How to adjust processors for EQ2

How to adjust processors for EQ2

Hello

Since you are all so helpful I thought this would be the perfect place to get help.

I have a quad processor and I am playing Everquest 2. I remembered when I first got my dual processor that I would get a speed bug a nice soe tech guy explained to me how to turn off one of the processors to help stop the bug until they could get a more permenant fix and make the game compatiable for dual cores. Now with my quad processor I notice alot of erractic play so I figured that since EQ2 isn't really compatiable with quad cores that shutting it down to 2 quads would help with the erractic play. So I asked in the forums and they said yes it would help. They told me of some link (http://coreaffinity.megabyet.net/coreaffinity.htm) to use but to be honest I would rather do it manually and not have a program do it for me. I went into the taskmanger like I did with xp, then the eq2 service and right clicked to bring up the affinity. I turned off 2 of the processors and exited out of the taskmanager. A few minutes later I opened it back up to make sure all 4 were off but once again all 4 are back on. So does anyone have a clue how to turn off 2 of the processors for eq2 manually?

Hello Areil, and welcome to Seven Forums.

This can help show you how to set the processor affinity for this program.

In addition, this can make it easier to do as needed.

64-bit os on (2) 32-bit processors?
Okay, now my question is: Can you run a 64-bit OS on 2-32 bit processors? Note: i don't want to try this, but in theory it should work if the OS can address both processors as 1 64 bit processor, correct?
