I work for a Video Fruit Machine Company. I perform "Autoruns" which verify that a game does pay out what it should over the course of 2Million+ games.

 

While not running google chrome at the same time as my autorun program I get about 1000 games every ten seconds.

 

While running google chrome at the same time I get 1000+ games every second!

 

That is a tenfold (approx) increase in speed.... What is going on?

 

It's not a problem as such, just my curiosity needs satisfying.....:)

I remember reading about similar things a few times and iirc the reason given was that the Flash inside the browser calls a Windows function( timeBeginPeriod(1) ) that changes global timer settings and influences other programs.

That would be my guess too. Maybe you have a Sleep(1) call in your code somewhere. That can sleep for significantly more than 1ms if you haven't done that.
