Far cry and CoD2 as far as i knpow both have dual/64 update available. You need to have the 64 bit version of windows to use the second core and 64 bit fully. Google is the best way to find out about software with patches for dual core as im sure between us we have all seen at least one thing but you probably wouldnt have most of it.

If you buy the game king kong it already has the option for dual core support with the game without any patches so in reality its the first game that the dual core support was added officially.

Dont you have to buy a special version of king kong? Valve are adding dual core support for the source based games soon as far as i know but dont know when (they just released 64bit upgrade for HL2 and CS:S so i dont know how long its gonna take).

Quake 4 has a dual core patch available as well.

No, the dual core support comes with the regular classic version of peter jacksons king kong and the high resolution version also. :tazz:
