People like You make this world a tired place buddy
Tired, maybe, but also less ignorant. I prefer a tired and boring world rather than an ignorant one.
You state that it does not make sense to put the cvar:
to value 3 on a quad core PC (to put physics on #3 the fourth core)
and that it's default value is 1 -meaning it will run on second core (index 1 = #1 = second core)
No, you misunderstood. I said that it doesn't make sense to put any value at all.
Everyone knows that the CPU index starts from 0 and not from 1. But, again, that doesn't matter, cause the OS already automatically balances the load between cores.
And Defender (a MW:LL developer) states that MW:LL uses two cores (index 0 and 1) which is true based on the default game auto-config
No, that statement is not complet. He also said that CryEngine2 uses 2 cores, but also a third one for physics thread. So, it can actually use 3 cores.
Yet again You clam the engine can't be tweaked to use cores beyond #1 (the second)
I never said that, man. It's all automatic...the load is already automatically balanced by the OS.
Whereby an reputable group of people over at the CryDev forum (lot more knowledgeable developer eyes checking each post than here) reportedly puts the physics thread on arbitrary core to unburden the two cores cry engine uses
Where? I didn't read anything about this.
Anyway, whatever, man...I was just trying to be constructive here.
