Okay, I suppose I should ask...

My brother has an old game he wants to play on the computer. It was made for a 286 or 386 basically. A friend explained that these old games used the clock speed differently somehow; which explained why the game ran at warp ten on this PII 350Mhz.

A little web searching turned up something called "CPU Killer". It's basically designed to bog down the cpu, and therefore, slow down the game to a playable speed. I just wonder if it's okay to use or not.

Does anyone know anything about this? I promised him I'd try to find a way for him to play his "X-Com: Terror from the Deep".

Thanks!

Thanks McTimson!

I figured there might be someone who knew about the CPU Killer app, but I wasn't sure if anyone would know X-Com. X-Com devoured many an hour for me, especially when it was released for the original Playsation console. :eek:

I wonder: do you know a good source for any other "old school" computer games like that? I don't really have the power for these newer games, and my brother mostly plays games on PS2 or Gamecube, but there are some other oldies out there which were fun, and probably wouldn't hog my resources too much.

Thanks again!

K-Man :)
