I saw about 4FPS + on the application, and i am really trying to squeeze everything out of my system for that. Because i am running this exe on 25FPS while i have a core 2 duo, 2GM of ram, and a 8600Nvidia GTS xfx card. I payed some money in order to see some speed, and im really frustrated to see my OS to slow this down. :/

Well, thats why i am asking in the first place of doing this without root privileges, cause im so freaking afraid to do so. i did the tests with no inet connection on.

Well, the link does not work, plus, i cant do any alt-tab, switch desktop, cause every time i move my window or try n change desktop, the application Anarchy.exe disapears (not on full screen though), and i cant see the PID of the aplication cause of that. Yes, i could go to a terminal and check there the PID, but.. there should be a solution for all that.

schedtool indeed can renice it, but.. guess what? in my system, the schedtool needs root privilege to nice or renice an application.

When i did my renice while i was with root privileges, the renice was on all of the wines PID, not just one, but all of em.

I dont know. I am new to the linux world, only 1 month on it. I have no experience of other unix systems, so i dont know what and if its wrong.
