Anyway you could make this a readable script so we can see what its doing?Not that I think its doing anything wrong but I think it will help people learn.

"Game Optimizer uses AppleScript to prompt the user to enter the name of the game. Then using several shell commands via AppleScript, it determines the Process ID (PID). Once i has the PID it then does a renice on it, effectively changing it's priority from -1 to -2. In addition, it renices WindowServer, which is the process that handles the graphics for OS X, to -1."

Heh.

There's no point in running Diablo II at a framerate faster than the cap because all the animation are based on that cap - there would be nothing to show in the extra frames. They'd only be duplicates,

Hi Mike,

I haven't yet found a place where there's a complete/full description of what this script does: Am I to understand this optimizes specific games via renice?

I'm going to test AoM & report back with my results!

Ok, I just launched it, and I'm getting the following error (I'm running Panther 10.3.5, G4/1.467ghz/512 RAM/Radeon 8500):

"Could not run the script "Game Optimizer.app" because of a scripting system (OSA) error."

Any idea why it would do this?

Hmmm. I can't see why my app wouldn't work. You're the first one to express problems with 3.0. Make sure your AppleScript is up-to-date.

I wasn't aware there was such a thing as an FPS cap.

Useful for these few apps. Too bad it can't remove Blizzards FPS cap on single-player Diablo II... I'm sure that'd be quite a feat, though... I'm not even requesting this feature, that'd require hacking the app, I'm sure...
