I wonder can you guys help with this. I got a new laptop recently and have started porting over some of my old software. I've got an old, and I mean old, game called Carrier Command. It was released in the 80's on the Amiga and C64. I found a PC version a few years back and happily play it whenever the nostalgia hits.
Or I did. My old laptop ran this thing fine. That was a P3 1GHZ with an integrated SIS650 graphics card running Windows ME. My current laptop is a P4 3Ghz with a Geforce 5200 card running XP home. And it can't run it properly. Whenever there is some action or I fire a laser, the game slows up to nothing.
So what's going on here? Why can the older computer play it better? I've tried compatibility mode but nothings working. Anyone have any suggestions?
