There seems to be a problem running the game on more recent PCs; overall, the game works fine, except for the 2 problems described above. What’s more, the problem seems speed-related. Slowing down the microprocessor with a utility like Turbo before running the game has been known to help.
As for the optimal setting, experimenting might yield the best results. Someone once reported having success after setting the CPU to “53%”, but your mileage may vary. Try starting at about 60 or 70% and work your way down from there at 5-10% increments.
Note: it might also turn out to be an “issue” with AMD processors, but I cannot confirm this either way. Any feedback on this is greatly appreciated.
Turbo can be downloaded from: http://www.wiw.org/~jess/turbo.html (Turbo was developed for W95, but *seems* to work just fine under other versions of Windows).
