He, he! Just looking at my shelf I have Dracula The Masquerade Redemption, Dracula the Masquerade Bloodlines, Dracula Resurrection, Dracula The Last Sanctuary, Dracula Origin, Dracula 3...
Anyone see a pattern here?!
And even your name!!!! **gasp** You're infected!!!!
But back to the imagecfg thing...
Have you checked our "Legacy Games and Hyperthreading" thread? It has a description by Steve Metzler of how to use imagecfg. It really should be called "Legacy Games, Hyperthreading, and Multiple Processors" because the tweaks are the same for both Hyperthreading and Multiple Processors.
Using the "imagecfg.exe" Utility Program (by metzomagic)
If your PC does have hyperthreading enabled, there is a universal patch programme that you can run to permanently bind a particular application to a single processor. We have archived it for you here: imagecfg.zip. Just download that file and unzip it. Then copy the IMAGECFG.EXE file to the folder:
Now you can run this programme from anywhere. To fix up a particular game, install the game first. Then open a Command Prompt via:
Start > All Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt
Figure out where your game's main executable file is (right-clicking on the game's icon and examining the Properties is a pretty safe bet). Using Grim Fandango as an example, you would enter something like this at the Command Prompt (note the quotation marks around the path to Grim.exe. These are only necessary if the path contains any spaces, but it does no harm to include them anyway):
imagecfg -a 0x1 "C:\Program Files\LucasArts\GRIM\Grim.exe"
And you should see the following output:
C:\Program Files\LucasArts\GRIM\Grim.exe contains no configuration infor,br> mation
C:\Program Files\LucasArts\GRIM\Grim.exe contains a Subsystem Version of 4.0
C:\Program Files\LucasArts\GRIM\Grim.exe updated with the following configuration information:
Process Affinity Mask: 00000001
Done! Now you shouldn't even have to run the game in Windows 95/98 Compatibility Mode.
Only instead of Grim.exe you'll use the executable file for Dracula Resurrection. Also the path will be different, depending on where you've installed Dracula. If you're not sure what the path is, do what Steve Metzler suggested and right click the game shortcut and select Properties from the context menu. You should see the correct path in there. I forget if it's on the first or the second tab.
