Dual core crash fix

I posted before about my game crashing lots at random (usually when saving or loading which was a pain).

I remembered a workaround for another game I had which crashed lots because it couldn't handle dual core and tried it with Call of Cthulhu. Haven't had a crash since!

If you were having the same problem all you need to do is download RunFirst ( http://www.activeplus.com/Products/RunFirst ) and paste the .exe file in your game folder. Then go to Start > Run and run the Runfirst.exe before the CoCMainWin32.exe as follows:-

"C:\Program Files\Bethesda Softworks\Call of Cthulhu DCoTE\Engine\RunFirst.exe" "C:\Program Files\Bethesda Softworks\Call of Cthulhu DCoTE\Engine\CoCMainWin32.exe"

Yours will probably be the same but may be different depending on where you chose to save your game. It's fixed a couple of my older games which refused to work on dual core so I hope it can help some of you out (with this game or others).

I'm glad I'm managing to play the game now without crash frustration!
