Odd thing I need

13 posts in this topic

I have a odd problem to solve, I need A to happen before B does, and the only reliable way to do that is to slow down the harddrive LOL

I need the best hd speed consuming algorithm you can come up with, which as a called .au3.exe will be simply killed when dragging is no long desired,

now please post your slow code LOL!

I'd say an infinite loop that burdens the hard disc

This is not the solution to your problem... Can you give more detial about what your trying to do overall? Why do you need the hard drive slown down?

I am loading two instances of an MMORPG and one has to be started loading without the fisrtt one finish first,

this is an odd problem that only exist in certain criterias, yet that's the thing I need to solve.

Essentially I need to slow the loading of the first one, so the second one can start loading before the first one finishes, or I have to slow down the while computer overall.

Set the priority of the process you want to load first to highest and the other to lowest. If the hard drive is 'slown down' becuase of high use, they will simply both read from the hard drive slower.

that was a good attmpt, thought it took me two hours to find out LOL

it doesn't work for me.

maybe someone can suggest another way?

I think a hd dragger really will work.

Wouldn't an infinite loop that burdens the hard disk cause damage to the drive? Remind me not to run your script.

LOL I need that only for 10 seconds every time I run the script.

But no really, could you write a infinite loop that burdens the hd for me ? I am out of clues.

p.s. I think if your harddrive last you two years, it's far enough. I owning my laptop for its 7th year and with the way I do things it's still good.

It most certainly would, like driving a car across a continent non-stop without an oil change, over and over again. Sounds to me that a BSOD screen is bound to occur by doing this. Simply set the priority of one of the game processes to low and the other to above normal. If that doesn't work, you can use my suspendprocess UDF that Manadar already pointed out. Since the processes have the same name, you will need to use their PID. Each process has a unique PID. You can get it from the return value of Run().

I would recommend you use the _ProcessSuspend() method to slow down the other game. Otherwise, once the first one starts loading, the second one will simply load everything much faster since all the data is already cached.

NOTE: ProcessSuspend only works on XP and higher.
