Hearts Game Speed Play Option

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.games (More info?)

I recently upgraded to Windows XP and at the same time installed a Radeon
video card with 64 meg onboard. XP was installed for a couple of weeks
before I got the video card installed. After installing XP, my hearts game
performed as it should and the game play speed option could be controlled
from very slow to very fast. Now that my video card is installed, the game
play speed cannot be adjusted much at all and it is impossible to tell who
gets the hands etc. Can anyone help me with this issue? I can access the
game speed option and even adjust it...it just doesn't make any real
noticeable difference.

Thanks in advance,
Russ

    Hi Russ,

    You can change the priority of a program to speed it up, or slow it down.
    Click Start / Click Run / Type: taskmgr and then press ENTER

    - Right Click on the program and select: "Go To Process"

    - Right Click on the process and "Set Priority" to High or Low as needed.

    - You can speed up games even more by ending all other Applications that
    are listed in the taskmgr, and right click to disable all icons by your clock.

    - You can slow down your games even more by running many programs,
    or use the Moslo utility: http://www.hpaa.com/moslo/basic.asp

    Moslo Instructions - Note this is not for the casual player - Use only if needed:

    Unzip the program to the same directory as the game you want to run slower.
    For the next steps to work, you have to have that directory open in windows.
    Note: Get the process name using taskmgr, then click Start / Search to Find it.

    Next click Start / click Run / type: command and then press ENTER
    At the DOS command prompt type: MOSLO /## GAME.EXE

    Note: ## is a number (actually, percentage ... using /50 runs the game at half
    normal speed) and GAME.EXE is the name of the game you want to play. :-)

    I cannot get this site to let me ask a question, so I'll do it here. Has
    anyone else had a problem with Hearts scoring incorrectly? I'll take no cards
    and the computer will give me all the points when it should be zero. It has
    also given my points to someone else when they should have been mine. Any
    suggestions?

    Hearts?? Perhaps someone is trying to tell you something, there really is
    something better you could be doing than playing electronic cards??
