XP: Set a program to only use 1 Core?

  1. I'm trying to play Unreal Tournament GOTY on a Q6600 / P35-S3L, and it runs crazy.

    I've browsed for a fix, and found a couple that kinda fix it. Add "CpuSpeed = xxx" to the shortcut, turning off C1e instructions etc in the bIOS, and FrameRateLimit=150 in the .ini .

    However, it still occasionally runs way too fast. I went into the Process manager and changed the Affinity to 1 core, and it was smooth again.
    BUT, it doesn't remember this!

    Is there something I'm missing, or can I make a little Batch File that will automatically run with the game, limiting it to 1core?

    I didn't know whether to put this in Gaming, or Windows:blush:

    Lord Nodsu...

    There's nothing in the read me...

    Do I add it to the shortcut path - i.e C:\UnrealTournament - "path to run 1st" ?????
