Does anyone use EndItAll or similar software to free up resources before running the game? Are there better programs for this or any particular tweaks anyone can recommend?

If you really want to maximise the system resources available for FB then make script files like these below in NOTEPAD then change the suffix from .Txt to .bat and double click to run.....
Assuming Xp pro -

pskill is a free prog to stop processes - do a google search and you should find it ok.

Stopeverything.bat
net stop "Computer Browser"
net stop "Cryptographic Services"
net stop "DHCP Client"
net stop "Distributed Link Tracking Client"
net stop "DNS Client"
net stop "Help and Support"
net stop "IPSEC Services"
net stop "KME Remote Server"
net stop "Messenger"
net stop "Network Connections"
net stop "Network Location Awareness (NLA)"
net stop "NVIDIA Driver Helper Service"
net stop "Portable Media Serial Number"
net stop "Print Spooler"
net stop "Remote Access Connection Manager"
net stop "Remote Procedure Call (RPC)"
net stop "Secondary Logon"
net stop "Server"
net stop "Shell Hardware Detection"
net stop "System Event Notification"
net stop "System Restore Service"
net stop "Task Scheduler"
net stop "TCP/IP NetBIOS Helper"
net stop "Telephony"
net stop "Terminal Services"
net stop "Themes"
net stop "TrueVector Internet Monitor"
net stop "Wireless Zero Configuration"
net stop "Workstation"
net stop "COM+ Event System"

pskill YourProgramName1
pskill YourProgramName2

When you finish with FB run this .bat file

StartEverything.bat
net start "COM+ Event System"
net start "Computer Browser"
net start "Cryptographic Services"
net start "DHCP Client"
net start "Distributed Link Tracking Client"
net start "DNS Client"
net start "Help and Support"
net start "IPSEC Services"
net start "KME Remote Server"
net start "Messenger"
net start "Network Connections"
net start "Network Location Awareness (NLA)"
net start "NVIDIA Driver Helper Service"
net start "Plug and Play"
net start "Portable Media Serial Number"
net start "Print Spooler"
net start "Remote Access Connection Manager"
net start "Remote Procedure Call (RPC)"
net start "Secondary Logon"
net start "Server"
net start "Shell Hardware Detection"
net start "System Event Notification"
net start "System Restore Service"
net start "Task Scheduler"
net start "TCP/IP NetBIOS Helper"
net start "Telephony"
net start "Terminal Services"
net start "Themes"
net start "TrueVector Internet Monitor"
net start "Wireless Zero Configuration"
net start "Workstation"

to resrart programs stopped with pskill - just click on 'em as usual http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Hi Dcom2,

you may use this small utility:

It's freeware.

Thanks folks, advice within minutes as usual on this forum! Cheers!!!

Can I type "Shoot straight and fly better" in notepad and change it to a .bat file to make MY performance any better or do I just have to resign myself to being cannon fodder while I get to grips with this game again?! http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/35.gif
