X-com Ufo Defence Runs Too Fast

You see, before I rebooted my computer, I saved everything in my Downloads folder to a CD. As a shot in the dark, I decided to simply go through the files and see if any were the one I was talking about. Whatdaya know, one was a WinRAR file titled "ufoeuet_2005_03_28", containing a registry edit program, an about and install readme, plus a "UFO Defense" and "ufoeuet" file. I followed the install instructions, and when I loaded X-COM, it was running at its normal 5 second intervals. Baring any trouble with sudden crashes (God forbid), the game should probably run fine now.
Sorry I didn't check through my Downloads folder before posting. Granted, still don't remember where I got it from, but now, I don't really care. Wish me luck with X-COM .

I was going to say you could message me your e-mail address, but then I decided to try to uplad it to http://www.fileul.com. However, that website's having some internal server problems lately, so back to plan A.
hey how did you slow it down im not computer wiz so can you step by step it for me i have the windows version but its way to fast!!!!
joker1080, message me your e-mail address. I'll message you mine so you can add me (and my message doesn't get blocked my any spam filters your e-mail website might have), then I'll send you the ufoeuet_2005_03_28 file. It comes with instuctions on how to use it, and if you follow them you shouldn't have a speed problem with UFO Defence anymore.

please bud... could you send me the patch? I'd like to have that but the URL you posted is quite broken...
Yeah, I've gotten the same trouble on another forum, where I used the site to upload the full version of "Operation: Inner Space", but it seems that fileul.com is down. Pity too, because I got a few dozen downloads for that file, if I remember correctly. Does anyone here know another good site where I could upload the patch so others could download it from a link?

Zombie: Empirical data's your only man, when formulating a research plan.
A soldier's death is never in vain if it makes the formula more plain.
A few dozen make a better case for refining that third decimal place.
They call me Zombie because I don't sleep, as I slowly struggle to climb this heap,
of corpses, data points, and trials, but from the top - I'll see for miles!

It works, It works!!! We finally got a solution!!!
Try Enabling "VSync" or "Forcing Frame Limit" in your video options. This tends to help with the speed issues in a lot of older games. (Including Xcom.)
Such a heavy burden now to be the 'one'.
Born to bear and bring to all the details of our ending,
To write it down for all the world to see.
But I forgot my pen!

Also as long as you get the latest copy of Dosbox, that handles the game speed quite well on faster computers in this day and age. The patch originally discussed here is probably 7 years old now, Dosbox's ability to handle the X-Com games has improved a lot over that time.
