Title: Speed
Post by: Lauri Karppi on March 04, 2004, 05:24:13 pm
Is there a way to make the game be slower? At least in melee?, since I  used to play sc2 and 1 with much slower machines, the melee was also much slower. The fights are so silly, I even lose to an Kzer-za with an Arilou. That never happened before. Well ok, sometimes.. but still. Or should I just use some 5hd party slowing tool? Does anyone know of such programs for XP?

Cyborg is nice, tho. I don't need to be so fast myself...

Thank You all responsible for bringing this best game ever back from the death !1!1!!

ps. I still have the original map-poster and 4 HD:s intact.

Personally I think the speed is fine. Try to get used to it by practicing and having fun against the computer... or your friends  ::) Anyway, I think you can change it where you can put the cyborg mode on and off, but I can't confirm it since I had to erase my uqm... Damn virus!

There's no option to slow the melee down. And I doubt a slowdown program (if you can find something like that) would work.
What probably would work, is modifying BATTLE_FRAME_RATE in element.h, and compiling the game from source yourself.
However, my suggestion is to practice. And for most fun, practice against another player.

A program like CPUKill might do it, which basically ties up the CPU with tons of nonsense instructions; makes everything run slow, but no idea if it'd affect UQM or not.

I've not used the program in years, no idea where you'd find it.
