Quad/Multi Core support
Ok general question : Are there any options to enable support for quad core machines.
Obviously the box lists dual cores in the system specs and given the number of performance gripes being aired on the forums is there a way to utilize additional cores as has been the case in other games in the past
so processors=4 in some .ini file somewhere
I'm using an AMD 2.4 GHZ Quad core machine
Its automatic, in fact it scales well accross all 6 of my cores on my 1090T.

C5 rarely hits 100% of all 6 cores on my system, and I mean rarely, usually hovers 40ish for marathon games with 10 AI, huge map. I also see much more utilization in MP games, can run 50-70ish constantly up and down, with no seemingly reason for the spikes, in fact against what you would think it settles down to low 50s on turn cycles even when they can take a near minute to finish.
Sorry it isn't CPU utilization, my friend has a 940black and over all he sees 10-15% more utilization, but again rarely 100%. Its all engine and/or steam related.
Thanks for that very thorough answer mate. Sounds like its pretty much out of our hands then.
TBH it's still hugely playable for me so I dont seem to be suffering half the problems others are.
I'll keep an eye on the boards and see what happens
