Hello to everybody...
I have written to CDV support but haven't got a reply in months so I'm asking you guys for help ...
I reinstalled Cossacks BTW and played some multiplayer games over the internet and over LAN. The problem is that the game is running WAY TO FAST and I cannot slow it down no mather what I try. It's so fast to the point it is barely playable. I have tried several multiplayer games with my friends over 6 different computers, several rooters and configurations and it is always the same - although we all put the speed slider to minimum and set game speed to SLOW, the game still runs extremely fast compared to a single player game (the problem is not present there) - the speed settings make no difference.
We are running the game on windows 7 and on multi-core PCs. We also tried a multiplayer game between windows XP (with single-core PC) and win7 but the problem persisted.
I also searched a lot on the internet but couldn't find many people talking about this problem, which I find really strange.
Any help would be really appreciated as I think it would be a shame that such a great game could not be played anymore because of such a "simple" problem. Should I try to run on a virtual machine with XP installed (but then there is a problem with Direct3D and connection)? Should I try the applications that slow down the CPU?
Thank you very much,
