My difficulty with Boot Camp
Authored by: horizonstar on Apr 08, '06 06:46:10PM

The only thing I wanted Windows for was to play the original Unreal Tournament from '99. The WinXP+SP2 installation went fine, as did the drivers and UT installation, but when I play, everything goes at about 5x the speed it should. The mouse, the computer AI ... as if the game doesn't have CPU timing logic.

Anyone have any ideas about how to fix this or heard of other people having similar problems? It's the one and only use I had for Boot Camp, and it didn't work. :(

My difficulty with Boot Camp

I saw your post and registered JUST to tell you the solution, since I was in the same boat (even only wanted Windows to run the original Unreal Tournament - haha) and luckily found the solution on another forum.

The problem is that UT can't deal with your dual processors. What you have to do is launch UT and then minimize the window to get back to the Windows desktop. Right-click in the bar with Start Menu (the blue area to the right of the Start Menu) and open the Task Manager. Click on the Processes tab and sort by name to find Unreal Tournament in the list. Right-click on it and choose the "affinity" option. It'll show that UT is currently using CPU0 & CPU1. Uncheck one of thoe options, close that window and the Task Manager, and get back into UT in full-screen mode. Viola! Problem solved.
