I went into task manager i want to set affinity and priority of the MWOclient.exe but it wont let me i have 12 cores in my system i want the game to use them.

It keeps saying you do not have permission im administrator

You can't increase number of cores used by game you can only decrease quantity. Not touch affinity is a best option.

Exactly. It is out of your control to tell a program how many cores to use, that's in the hands of the programmers. You can only restrict how many it has access to.

simple facts are i have 12 core what's the point in having these cores and hype from companies like Microsoft or Intel if the programs simply don't use them.

The folks who've posted above have the right of it. You'll also want to make sure you've chosen to run the 64-bit client from the Patcher Settings menu presuming you have a 64-bit system with all those cores. GL/HF!

If it's not programmed that way, then you just can't do it. More processors and more cores doesn't mean anything if programs aren't coded to take advantage of it (and the majority of programs aren't for a few different reasons, one being that a majority of computer users out there only have dual-core systems). Higher end programs are usually coded for more high end systems, but MWO is probably not the best example with it's small dev team and limited resources.
