I'm not sure if I should be posting this here, but here goes.
I like games, sure I beleive that many people on this site do as well, but this doesn't have anything to do with what I like at the moment. My curiousity had me wondering if I could speed up my game to make it a tad faster. don't get me wrong, this should be relatively easy, but for some reason this one game in particular is beginning to aggrivate me. now i sped games up before to enhance performance, but this time I am trumped.
I wanted to set the priority level higher for crossfire to see if I would notice a slight FPS difference, but I cannot manage to set the priority whatsoever.
First, I had went into task manager and click the process tab, then proceeded to find the filename to set the new priority; Although only to find that the process was not there.
Second, I had stepped back and proceeded into the "Applications" tab, then right-clicked the application to hit "Find process"; yet again, it eludes me.
given the information, i figured, i'd be smooth and make a batch(.bat) file.
made a notepad document-
the following contents entered:
cd /d "filepath" /////in my case is "C:\Program Files\Subagames\CrossFire"
start /High "filename.exe" ///// via "crossfire.exe"
note I could have set this to realtime, but it was just merely a test to see if there would be a slight FPS change.
Sadfully, the batch file somewhat worked, but the file won't fully execute. What I'm trying to say is, I have done this before(on a shittier pc, mine is WAY better though), but for some reason it's not working like it should. The box for the game shows, then it would disapear shortly after.
I know that everyone has encountered this before, when they know something should work, but for some reason it isn't.
i am seeking help in this matter as well as discussing things you know should work but for some reason didn't.
