Multi-Processor options question

    Hello all,

    This has been nagging at me for a while now, so I've got to ask it. Probably a stupid question, but...

    Multi-Processor options - will game jackal degrade my game if the game uses multiple cpus?

    In other words, in the program it is saying Game Jackal is going to use CPU 2 and the game will use CPU 1 by default...but does that mean my game will now have crippled multiple CPU functionality?

    I'm confused because in the help file, it sort of hints this:

    Please note that utilizing more than one processor for a profile (or game) can reduce Game Jackal’s performances and reliability. If multiple processors are to be implemented for a specific profile, we recommend that the advanced options are used to set a delay before the multi processor mode is switched in (this will ensure that game has started).

    Am I reading this right - that every game that can use multiple CPUs could have performance/reliability issues (either that or Game Jackal could have the issues) if I don't go into the Advanced options and set a delay? Or is it just Game Jackal that will have issues?

    Thanks in advance!

    No. Those options only affect Game Jackal.
