I wonder how because there is a game: TankWars Which is a classic and we want to play it on comps at the college... got any clue on how we can slow down the comp? Bcz it's unplayable... way to fast!

Well, you could slow it down via the BIOS settings, but I don´t think it would make much sense. Best way is to use an emulator, here´s a real nice one:

Different from "usual" emulators it not just emulates the user interface or OS, it emulates the whole hardware like processor and memory too.... :wink:



/me loves sourceforge :mrgreen:

Thx... I'm sure this program works well but I don't have the right to run a .exe file on the machine... Is there a tweak in windows XP?

uh-oh...this will be hard... :?
I mean, you could retrieve the admin-pw and gain administrative rights, but this can bring you into big trouble, I don´t think it´s worth it...
but when I have an idea how to do it in another way I´ll let you know... :wink:

We use novell at school... maybe I should read some doc about where the pwd files is and then login in adm mod? But ya... it's not worth it to play a game... and I don't even know how so:P
