Posted: 12-13-2003, 06:41 PM
Equipment: Dell 2.4ghz 512MB Ram. Sportsmans Paridise runs so fast I am unable to play it. Manufacture wizard works It run fine on my old system using Win98. I tried using the compatibility setting to no avail. Anything you could suggest will be appreciated. Thanks

Hi WBL,

You can change the priority of a program to speed it up, or slow it down.
Click Start / Click Run / Type: taskmgr and then press ENTER

- Right Click on the program and select: "Go To Process"

- Right Click on the process and "Set Priority" to High or Low as needed.

- You can speed up games even more by ending all other Applications that
are listed in the taskmgr, and right click to disable all icons by your clock.

- You can slow down your games even more by running many programs,
or use the Moslo utility: http://www.hpaa.com/moslo/v132/moslo132.zip

Moslo Instructions - Note this is not for the casual player - Use only if needed:

Unzip the program to the same directory as the game you want to run slower.
For the next steps to work, you have to have that directory open in windows.
Note: Get the process name using taskmgr, then click Start / Search to Find it.

Next click Start / click Run / type: command and then press ENTER
At the DOS command prompt type: MOSLO /## GAME.EXE

Note: ## is a number (actually, percentage ... using /50 runs the game at half
normal speed) and GAME.EXE is the name of the game you want to play. :-)
