Wen I first played CM:BO (CMX1) on my 64-bit Windows 10 (Intel i5) laptop, I found the game unplayable. Panning was not smooth and the game loaded the 3D components very slowly. So slow that I thought the game hung. Later I discovered that I could speed things up with this:
1. hit Control-Alt-Delete
2. go to Task Manager
3. Apps
4. right-click and select "go to Details"
5. select game's exe (???.exe whichever CMX1 you are playing)
6. set the "Processor Affinity" of the game to only one CPU. I.e., check ONLY the "CPU 1" box.
Now the panning is smooth as silk and the game plays fast on my Windows 10 Pro laptop. I would have given up exploring CMX1 if not for these steps that I do everytime I fire up CMX1. Works for CM:BO, CM:AK and CM:BB.
Hope this helps someone. ;-)

@Sempai ...if when starting your game it might just be very jerky and won't run properly, ...this is what you do when starting to open the game, before it gets going hit the icon on your keyboard, that's the one with windows on it, 2 seconds hit the game in your toolbar, the game will run as smooth as can be :D easy peasy
