    I've read about dual core/processor and HTT scripts to fully utilize x86 cpu's and I can't seem to find a link here on the forums. I was wondering if someone could post a link for me... I recently added an Athlon X2 3800 dual core that is (only somewhat) replacing the 2 A64 3200 systems that have stopped folding for me and want to take full advantage of it.

    Thanks!

    If you're using Windows, you don't really need scripts to allow multi-CPU processing. You can create two separate folders to hold the programme and include a work folder in each for the data. After that, open the properties of the console version of the programme, that you've dropped into each folder, and specify -local followed by the directory of the work folder.

    That should be enough to get you going. You can always go into the Stanford forums to get more information.

    Thanks

    I've been really busy, and the guy who the dual core belongs to was kind of iffy about it at first, but I've got it going now.

    Thanks for the info on using the "-local" command.
