 + 
 +  - Go to your Steam library 
 +  - Right-click **GoldenEye: Source (vX.X)** 
 +  - Click **Properties** 
 +  - Under **LAUNCH OPTIONS**, enter the following command:\\ ''<nowiki>C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe /S /C start /AFFINITY 4 "." %command%</nowiki>'' 
 +  - Close the properties window 
 +  - Launch the game to see if the issue is resolved.
  
-  - Launch GoldenEyeSource. Observe the game's performance +Notes:
-  - Press ''Ctrl'' - ''Shift'' + ''Esc'' to open Task Manager +
-    - If using Windows 7, switch to the **Processes** tab +
-    - If using Windows 8, 8.1 or 10, switch to the **Details** tab +
-  - Right-click ''hl2.exe'' +
-  - Click **Set Affinity** +
-  - Click the check mark next to a specific CPU core. +
-    - On processors with HyperThreading/Simultaneous Multi-Threading (SMT), be sure to click an **even-numbered core**. +
-  - Click **OK** +

-The third-party tool Process Lasso may be used to automatically apply this setting every time the game starts.+  * Source engine launch options can be added after ''%command%''
 +  * This example command will launch the game on the 3rd logical core (CPU 2). The affinity is hexadecimal. 
 +  * On systems with HyperThreading (HT) or Simultaneous Multi-Threading (SMT), where the system has 2 logical threads per core, this affinity represents running on the 2nd physical core. On systems without, it represents running on the 3rd physical core. 
 +  * If you modify this command, make sure the core the game runs on represents a physical core, not a HT/SMT logical core. For example, you would want to bind it to an even-numbered core (if counting from 0) on most HT/SMT systems that have 2 logical threads per core.
