Hey I've been looking all over the place (I'm also relatively new to linux so bear with me) I"m trying to run some old games like Harry Potter and Sorcerers stone PC, but it runs way to fast. I've poked around enough to discover that it probably has to do with the CPU affinity. Is there a way in playonlinux to set this per virtual machine? or some solution like that. I have tried taskset too... but I've run into an error it tells me it cannot be used with 64-bit version or something. Do I have to somehow point taskset at the version of wine that playonlinux is using?

Thanks for the help.

No. No way to slow down a software in POL/POM.
