I have been working with my game Astro Limit in periods a very long time so now I decided to finally complete it.

Earlier I had very many problems with the high resolution (1280*1024) so after much work I changed it to 1024*768.

Now it works fine on our win98 computer but on the other that have Xp and is a much better computer it
-of some weird- reason runs in slowmotion.

So... any ideas about what I can do to solve the problem?

All serious attempts to help is appreciated

Are you using Change Resolution Mode, or Resize Display? Or anything?

The only windows options I use is "Allow user to switch to/from fullscreen" and "Application to include menubar"

I once read that there is some kind of different between older/newer computers which makes MMF games run slower. Dunno much more about it though.

Ah, but the games runs at less than half speed and the games I download from daily click and the other games I have done works fine. Can it have something to do with the resolution? 1024*768 is the maximal resolution on our Xpcomputer.

I never thought a new videocard would help MMF's performance, because of its issues with performance, however I did notice HUGE performance boosts, when I jumped from my Radeon 9250 up to my GeForce 7600GS. Perhaps this could be the case?

Hmm, if I run it in 600*600 windowed mode it still runs slower than on the other computer but faster than before on this.
This is... weird

Edit: Any idea?

Video performance does not always rely on the OS. Perhaps the video card in the 98 computer is better for click games.

Come on now , don't tell me your Klik game performance increased ( brandon ) or decreased ( Jakob ) coz of a hardware..

Even an abandoned ghostly PC is enuf to run most of the Klik Games unless its a piece of mad codes such as mine & erm, David Newton! ( sorry could'nt resist )

Biblin: Possible, but I think that we have a pretty good videocard on this and games like BlastRadius2 runs normally

HBK: I maybe seemes strange but the game actually runs slower on the better computer, do YOU have any better ideas why it does?

It could very well be the hardware. I don't know where HBK gets the idea of most click games working well on old computers, because most run plain slow here. You musn't forget that click games are made with a high-end 'programming' language.

i dunno so much about MMF, but in TGF you can change the drivers in an option called 'Graphics and sounds'

the options are

direct draw
microsoft win g
standard windows


mine is standard windows and it runs all games perfectly under XP.

Funny, in my copy of TGF pro, it only ever lets me select Standard Windows. On my old computer, my new computer, my other computer at my mom's house... All do that. I can't use the other two modes.

You shouldn't use Wing anyway, that's Windows 3.1 graphics speedup technology.

That is pure bs that a klik game runs fast on every computer; I used to play Gearbolt Rage and Factor X in slo-mo on my way old 95.

I always thought that klik games were notorious for being fussy when it comes to XP. You could just be SOL....

Just checking... have you checked the "Machine independant speed" box? Maybe windows XP has a feature which prevents Machine dependant speed apps from whizzing up too high?

@rydin: uh, what are you talking about? bs? SOL?

Anyway, the more objects there are + the higher the game resolution, the slower it will run on older computers. I especially noticed this with my 266 Mhz Pentium II with 64 MB RAM, which especially ran bad at bigger frames and scrolling.

It appears like nobody have any idea about what I can do so I guess I have to change the screenresolution again...
But anyway, thanks everybody for trying
