i check and these games should work perfectly eg: command & conquer generals, lord of the ring RTK etc
my system config
intel P IV 1.8Ghz
intel 845G graphics
WIN XP pro
Well i know command and conquer generals will slow down so that one second ingame is about 1.5-2 seconds real time if your on a slower computer. This happened to me with my p4 1.7ghz, 512ram, radeon 9800pro. Once i built my new computer with amd 3700+, 1gig ddr ram, same radeon 9800pro, the game runs at normal speed.
I dunno what it is about EA with there RTS games, they do something to them to slow down on not the best systems because it also happened to me on lord of the rings battle for middle earth RTS game made by the same people. On my old system it ran incredibly slow and i had no idea why, im guessing it was weak processing power, maybe the ram because the more units that were in the game for either game, the slower it got.
