As you know, some old Windows games may not work properly on your shiny new PC. Some problems lie in a video- and/or audio-drivers, some -- in Windows itself, some -- in a multi-core nature of your new PC's CPU.
My tiny FlipTIB utility has been written to cope with the multi-core issue. If you suspect that your favorite old Windows game suffers from such an issue (the game might run slower or faster than it should, or just hiccups, or even stucks), then please download FlipTIB, install it, then click Right Mouse Button on the game's shortcut, select "FlipTIB: "single-core" mode" and voilą .
It should only help in case of the multi-core issue. If you can see that my utility couldn't help your game, then you should find another cure for your problem.
I must admit that several community tools and patches already contain the multi-core solutions (in case of Thief 1&2: Dark Engine Fix (DEF), DDFix, TafferPatcher, ImageCfg and so on), so if you are already using them, then there is no need to use my utility.
Q: Which CPUs FlipTIB does support?
A: All of them. It doesn't matter what CPU are you using and how many cores/threads it has: Intel, AMD, VIA, etc.
Q: Does FlipTIB conflict with AMD Dual-Core Optimizer or any other similar purpose programs?
A: No at all, AFAIK.
Q: Which games may require to be fixed with FlipTIB?
A: Most of pre-2006. I have patched these for myself: Thief 1&2&3(DS), Deus Ex 1&2(IW), Unreal 1&2, Unreal Tournament 1, Clive Barker's Undying, Wheel of Time, Tribes: Vengeance, Half-life 2: The Orange Box (that's right, this pack of games is fresh enough) and...I don't remember all of them, sorry .
P.S. FlipTIB can "speak" with you on 21 languages. If you want to correct one of them or add another, feel free to contact me .
