Nope it doesn't. Single core only, same goes for the new 1.31 beta.

Supposedly it was supposed to support two-three-four-six core processors. but something happened.

Have to remember this is the exact same engine from 2001, designed to run on a 3Dfx Voodoo Banshee 64MB card.

Those cards rocked.

It could be using 4 cores, just not multiple at the same time. Something like this:

run on cpu#0 for 0.25 sec

run on cpu#1 for 0.25 sec

run on cpu#2 for 0.25 sec

run on cpu#3 for 0.25 sec

run on cpu#0 for 0.25 sec

Sorta, But it'll never use more then 25% usage on a quad, 50% on a dual.

I've tried setting affinity with the task manager for multiple cores like core 0 and core 1 only,

its a no go, will only use one of the cores selected.

Here ill run BGE with a resource monitor going...

You can see WW2ol rides Core 1 and nothing else, utilizing 25% of the total processing power, 24.73% average processor usage. (the orange line is the ww2ol.exe)
