Easy and annoying fix for ARMORED CORE VI until the dev take the time to correct it themself.
Changing the .Exe
First of all you’ll have to go to your game folder located in your drive. It should look like that:
- YOURDRIVE\steamapps\common\ARMORED CORE VI FIRES OF RUBICON\Game
Here rename “start_protected_game.exe” to something different like “armoredcore_protected.bkp”
Then rename “armoredcore6.exe” to “start_protected_game.exe”
Image reference on how it should look:
Start the game through Steam like you would normally!
When you are in the game main menu, ALT+TAB ( or WIN+TAB) and go to the task manager
In there, right click on the game and “go to detail”:
In the detail tab, right click on the game again and “set affinity”:
Uncheck the “CORE 0”:
And voilà, the game should run as smooth as butter from now on.
You will have to do this every time you launch the game for the moment until the dev fix it…
Everything on Ultra!
