My server and/or game is jittery

This is often the result of a multi-core or multi-processor machine.
Simply setting the affinity of Tribes 2 often solves this issue.

Option One: ImageCfg* (Courtesy 404notfound, Cat, CraigS)
  • Download ImageCfg from
    Save to your GameData folder (Usually C:\Dynamix\Tribes2\GameData)
  • Open a Command Prompt:

    • Start Menu -> All Programs -> Accessories -> Command Prompt
  • Change directory to GameData (cd C:\Dynamix\Tribes2\GameData)

  • Execute imagecfg (imagecfg.exe -a 0x1 Tribes2.exe)

    Option Two: Affinity.exe (Courtesy: CraigS)
    • Download
      Save to your GameData folder (Usually C:\Dynamix\Tribes2\GameData)
    • Create a new shortcut named play that goes to the Tribes2.exe (remember to add the -online flag)
      C:\Dynamix\Tribes2\GameData\Tribes2.exe -online

    • Create a .bat file (or copy and edit one of the classic ones)
      del /s /q *.dso
      start affinity.exe play.lnk
      (replace play.lnk with the name of the shortcut you created earlier)
    • Drop a shortcut to your .bat on the desktop and enjoy.

    Option Three: Vista or Newer (Courtesy Cat, teratos)
    • Create a .bat file (or copy and edit one of the classic ones) in your GameData folder
      del /s /q *.dso
      start /affinity 1 /abovenormal Tribes2.exe -online
    • Drop a shortcut to the .bat on your desktop and enjoy
  • Option Four: The Task Manager
    • Open the task manager (ctrl+alt+del, or ctrl+shift+esc)
    • click the Processes tab
    • right-click the Tribes2.exe process
    • select Set Affinity...
    • uncheck all but one core (Best results typically result from using a secondary core)
    • click OK
  • If after applying one of these fixes you still have a jittery game, create a .cs file in your autoexec folder (GameData/base/scripts/autoexec)
