This is probably more suited to the tech support section, but I'll let you have a chance to respond before moving it.

The first thing we need to know is which version of the game you are using. The dos version or the Collectors Edition (the Windows edition, also commonly known as the Gold edition).

I'll assume it's the dos version. The game was designed back when computers didn't have as much processing power nor was it common practice for game programmers to put in any animation speed limiters so games tended to run faster on more advanced computers.

The solution for this would be to get the Dosbox emulator, which you can use to emulate a computer that is better suited to running the game.

Have a look around the file section on this site, or Strategycore's file section. There will also be some pinned threads in the tech support subforums of both TFTD and Enemy Unknown's that'll point you in the right direction.

at the part where you save your game (the question mark button), there's a screen scroll setting, try adjusting it.
