Default Assigning to one Core

If I have a x2 CPU, how do I set it so everything si assigned to one core? Some games can only use one.

LOl, you don't have to do anything. If a game only supports single core it will only use one core and let the other one sit idle.

No it won't. BF2 does not like dual-core CPU's. You'll get random crashes, connection problems, etc.

Since I don't know a perminant way, I'll tell you a way to use one core but you have to do it everytime you play. Load BF2, then ctrl + alt + del and go to task manager, then Performance and de-select one of the CPU's. It doesn't matter which.
