Priority with Task manager

    I remember a post from last year by one of the tech devs that explained how to make EQ be processed by more than one core. It is always assigned to one core. I have windows 7 now and everytime I have had to turn on task manager and set the affinity to all cores. However, the background sounds become distorted. I can hear music (if I turn it on) normally. I do box sometimes, but only a 2nd character.
    Is there a way to make windows recognize eq? I recollect eq.ini.files or something and setting something to -1 or 1, but I can't remember fully. I also don't see the techhnical advice stickied anywhere, which is a bit surprising.

    Wow. Thanks for the help. I figured it out for myself.

    Excellent. If another searches and comes across this post, the file is in eqclient.ini and the command line is changed to CPUAffinity # = -1, with # starting with 0 and increasing (depends on the number of sessions that have been attempted to be run at the same time).
