Nah, I was running it with all cores. Everytime I tried to set the affinity, I got an error message.

Ehh, um, I will just nod my head like I was understanding what that was about. Yes. See, I'm listening. Uh, yeah. But where is the 'any' key?

I'll try looking for some kind of optimizer, but I'm not sure if I'll start tweaking things that much. As I can get G1 to start with the gimmick I described and it works flawlessly once it starts, maybe I'll just endure those few extra steps for now.

Yep, that's the case here too. With G1 running, one core is doing most of the of the work while the others seem to be basically idling.

Anyways, thanks for your help! I'll try fiddling with G1 a bit more to see if I can resolve this somehow. Fortunately, G1 does work, even if it needs a bit of coaxing.
