Ok, I've been trying to play this game, because it's fantastic, but before i throw out my copy and try to find it on the game cube, can anyone help me with the problem I have?
I've seen it around the forum in several other topics, but none of the solutions have really fixed it, so I'll state it again.
I'm playing on a laptop with:
2.0Ghz Pentium M Centrino
1 GB Ram
All drivers up to date.
When I have my processer running at full power, the game runs about ten times too fast, making it completely unplayable.
When it's left at default speed, it still runs too fast, but not quite so bad. It's playable, but you miss all the cutsequences because it's badly out of synch.
I installed the patch and that made everything run much slower, so on the whole, best to avoid the patch.
Now, from reading other topics, it seems that clock speed is the main problem in this case. Namely, most recent CPU's just plain run too fast for the game to synch up properly. Which is a bit sad, given we're not talking about King's Quest here, we're talking about a game released in the last few years.
If this is the case, my question is, does anyone know of a way to set the clockspeed? the reccomended CPU is 1.3Ghz, so presumably a clockspeed near how a CPU of that Ghz would perform should run the game no problems.
How does one set the cpu to run at a specific speed without getting out a screwdriver?
