:huh: Hi. I recently asked how i can slow down my UFO and TFTD gameplay (scrolling around durring battles and turning the globe is super fast and my scrolling is set at 1). Someone mentioned a DOSBox but then that topic got turned to a read only thingy so i had to make a new topic to ask this. But does anyone know what DOSBox to dl i searched it on the web but there are so many dif versions i have no idea which one i should get. :huh:

Drag the folder where you have UFO into dosbox.exe, and once in type go.
Alt + Enter: windowed<->fullscreen
Ctrl + F7 decrease frame rate
Ctrl + F8 increase frame rate (Use these once you found the amount of cycles per second that fits bet your computer)
Ctrl + F11 decrease cycles
Ctrl + F12 increase cycles
Ctrl + F5 take snapshot
Ctrl + F6 (from 0.62 version) take wav.

It shouldn't matter.
