I love your 'Switch' function, but could you please make it a bit more clearer? Was thinking along the lines of implementing a 'Save these settings as low' / 'Save these settings as normal' and a 'Load saved settings' / 'Load normal settings' button.
Think it should not be too hard to implement that and it will really help, because I just want to have same settings, but low settings in 25raids, and now I have to save/load all the time while I only want to save once, then load it every time I get in a raid.

Thanks for your time,

Fonjask

Brilliant tip.

I blogged on it here, btw.
Don't thank me, thank dumb luck when I was searching for i7 overclocking guides on Anandtech

And it appears that the newest versions does indeed support the aforementioned setting for 8 cores.

Get outta here with your private servers. Pay for the game like everyone else, get the most up to date patches and your addons will work again :P

I just have to say that this addon is awsome, but i have only seen screens becouse when I'm trying to config it, it only shows errors, the only things I can config is a few things in two of the pages. When I try to change page it only shows errors and nothing else.

I took some screens of it to show, i am running the 3.0.9 patch if that makes some difference.

I just wanted to leave a note real quick that after changing the Video Cache setting to a higher value, WoW crashed occationally, saying M2.something requested soandsomany bytes - out of memory. I think it happens when WoW wants to adress more than 1.6 or 2 GB of memory.

I've never had those crashes before increasing the cache size and after disabling the cache I've never seen the crash again.
I'm using 4 GB Ram, a GTX 260 with 892 MB under W7 x64. Drivers are up to date.

Cheers & thanx

If you can't set via this addon (I have yet to test it, but will be doing so tonight) you can manually edit your config.wtf file found the WTF directory under you WoW install and add the following line:

set processoraffinitymask "255"


This tells WoW to use 8 threads (4 cores each with HT, assuming you have HT turned on). Using it on an i7 920 I went from 12-18 FPS in Dal to 25-40 with all settings maxed.

The spell detail thing is insane When a DK uses his red floor thing I lag very badly :P but I think that's the only spell that makes me lag anyways, I reduced it xD

This is for multicore cpus. you may also wish to try setting this to 1, as some CPUs can't deal with 2 and vice versa, 0 is for single core CPUs
Timing Method 2 is QueryPerformanceCounter.

On a multiprocessor computer, it should not matter which processor is called. However, you can get different results on different processors due to bugs in the basic input/output system (BIOS) or the hardware abstraction layer (HAL). To specify processor affinity for a thread, use the SetThreadAffinityMask function.

Code:
/console gxFixLag 0
Set this on nvidia GPUs, the cvar name and also the option description in the video settings is missleading, this controls GPU synchronisation behaviour and decreases fps according to nvidia
Code:
/console processAffinityMask 3
this is a binary mask, i.e. 1 for single core, 3 for dual core, 15 for quadcore, and so on. remember that e.g. a dualcore with hypethreading would also require setting this to 15
