    Hey, so yeah, im trying to figure out how to make L2 run smoother in background. As in when u tab out and in etc.
    Seems this client wont let me set a higher priority in task manager. Anyone got some tips?

    Edit: Not a hardware problem...

    ALT + SHIFT + O to open options.
    In first tab VIDEO.
    Make sure to have Window Mode to FULL WINDOW MODE (or at least WINDOW MODE), but NOT the FULLSCREEN MODE.
    That will save you extra 1-2sec on Alt-Tab.
    Then in the same tab, on the right column, make sure to UNCHECK the OPTIMIZE PERFORMANCE checkbox.
    That makes the game run smooth in the background, aswell as save ~1sec extra when opening the game window.
    Perfect for playing on multiple accounts, but when you hide your game instance(s) to do smth. else, the game will obviously still eat all your performance.

    While it tells you that it'll work this way WHEN CHECKED. Thanks for pointing out - I already see my 2 boxes perform better while typing this message!
