So I got bored...

I got bored, so I ran Uplink, Darwinia, Defcon and Multiwina at the same time...

They all seem to run pretty reasonably when run together, except uplink...

I'd file a bug report, but I feel it's unreasonable to expect 4 games to run at the same time...

Have you ever seen the Uplink code?
Seriously, you can't expect it to run well at all. It is incredibly slow, compared to what it could be.

Shwart!!

You could always try Miah's 'patch 1.60' or whatever. And it's not unreasonable; it's practically a prerequisite for UpDefWinia to get of the ground!

Just get a quad core and assign a core to each of them :P

Just tried that, sadly didn't help :( Though I've now managed to get uplink to a near-playable state by tweaking priorities in task manager...

Actually, I think CHRONOMULTIUPDEFWINIA comes first.

SUBMULTICHRONOUPDEFWINIA.

Wouldn't you feel cheated if they made a game with that name and it turns out that it's just Minesweeper?
