Fallout 2, does anyone know a site that explains the options of the ddraw.ini?

    For example, why force it to use only singlecore? Why not allow it to use as many as it desires? That's the default setting in the ddraw.ini file after installing the restoration mod. Does it cause problems when it uses more than one core? Wouldn't using more than one core perhaps increase the efficiency of the AI for NPC's?

    Old games like Fallout are never meant for multi-threading. The game is too old and simple to gain any improvement from using more CPU cores. No point letting it use more than one core as it won't "increase the efficiency of the AI for NPCs". It's not like processing big data or mining bitcoin these days.
