Found an old game: Trophy Rivers (fishing game) that I played all the time on my old PII 400 back in 1998 and 1999.<br>
I installed it on my rig and I cant get it to play at normal speed.<br>
Everything is speed up about 3-4x too fast.<br>
How do I fix it?<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/confused.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Confused">

its so crazy that you mentioned this. I remember back in the day (like 99) When I used to play Quake II all the time with my new "uber" computer I would every now and then try and play this old dos game that came on a floppy disk. That thing would move so freaking fast it was unbearable but it made me sooo mad. haha I guess now I know how to fix this as well.

This is a common problem with DOS games and maybe some older Windows games (probably Win 3.x games). Games did not have a timer to synchronize with until Windows took over gaming, all they did was use the CPU clock. So using programs like MoSlo to play older DOS meant for 386 and 486 CPUs games was common practice back in the early Pentium/Windows 95 era.
