PostSubject: ROF Support Utilities   Fri Aug 03, 2012 8:55 pm

This is the section for Utilities that support ROF. In this post there will be a list of the utilities available in the order they're offered. Each will have their own subject post and a reply for added info.

1. LAA (Large Address Access) - Used for 32 bit machines to increase the RAM available to ROF. <=== No Longer Needed

2. FRAPS - Used to monitor your Frames Rate Per Second in or out of game.

3. Process LASSO - A utility for assigning priorities to specific programs.

4. 7-Zip - The best utility to Zip and unZip. It can handle zips, rar's and by use of it's particular packer and unpacker, 7z provide great results. The compression of the .7z is excellent!

PostSubject: LAA Large Address Access   Fri Aug 03, 2012 8:56 pm

32Bit Systems ONLY!!!!!

This utility was kindly supplied by CamelJock. Its origin is from within a Forum that CamelJock subscribes to.

This utility precludes using the 3GB switch in the boot.ini !!Do NOT USE BOOTH!! Use this or the switch. Using both causes ROF.exe to error and CTD.

Download it here: Large Address Access



Really Simple!

1. Download from above link.

2. Create a folder where ever you want to KEEP LAA.

3. Unzip the downloaded utility to the folder you created.

4. Run utility, Search for your ROF.exe as in step 1 above. <== Note use the ROF.exe, NOT the rof_updater.exe

5. Put a 'Tic' mark in the box as in Step 2 above.

6. Save as in Step 3 above.

YOU are done

PostSubject: FRAPS - Frame Rate Utility   Fri Aug 03, 2012 8:56 pm

FRAPS- Use this to view your Frame Rates in game both on and off line! FRAPS is FREE forever, but not all options are available. The Frame Rate one is....

Download it here: FRAPS Setup

Pretty Simple! The below pictures will get you going quickly. FRAPS has a tiny 'footprint' so...No Worries

FRAPS has many options that you may want! The full version can be purchased for 37 USD.

PostSubject: Process Lasso   Fri Aug 03, 2012 8:58 pm

WORK IN PROGRESS - When you no longer see this I am done! :-) Not totally sure how much I will do here?

This my fellow pilots is a very cool and powerful program. Again it is NOT FREE but parts of it are. The parts we're interested in are CPU Affinity, ProBalance mode and Gaming Mode. You can specify what cores runs ROF and what core/cores run the peripherals like TrackIR and Teamspeak and your mouse. You can do this w/o this proggie but the setting doesn't stick and has to be done every time you run the program! The program costs 28.95 USD. You may want to buy it. There are 32 and 64 bit programs.


Next is: ProBalance Mode: Process Lasso's most popular feature is the unique process optimization technology called ProBalance (Process Balance) that will improve your PC's responsiveness and stability through process priority optimization and/or CPU affinity adjustments. Windows, by design, allows programs to monopolize your CPU without sufficient restraint -- leading to hangs, micro-lags, and delays in your keystroke or mouse actions. ProBalance intelligently adjusts the priorities and/or CPU affinities of running programs, on-demand, as-needed so that badly behaved processes won't negatively impact the responsiveness of your PC. ProBalance works by LOWERING the priority of select background processes in high loads, NOT raising priorities.

Finally, Gaming Mode to auto-optimize for game processes, when they are running.

Download here: Process Lasso

As an example: I have specified that Gaming Mode be turned on for ROF and that Probalance DOESN'T restrain its use of the computer. That both of my dual cores share. I have specified that it has the Highest Priority when running.
Also:
Mouse uses core '1' which is actually core '0' - don't ask goofy computer terminology :-)
Track IR uses core '1' <=== for IL-2 & ROF
Teamspeak uses core '1'
Ventrilo uses core '1' <===== for IL-2


DANGER! ==> Obviously, things can be over-tweaked or tweaked wrongly and you lose ground! Read and know what you're doing!
