I’ve noticed that whenever I try to fast-forward the battle, everything gets really choppy, as if the video and sound is not being rendered correctly, and the action seems to go slower instead of faster. Even at just 1.2x this happens. At first I thought it was deliberate to conserve rendering resources. But then a friend of mine installed onto his laptop, and the battle is smooth as can be, even up to 4x.
I am running Windows XP Pro, on a Dual Core E8500, with a Geforce 9600. Certainly not an underpowered system. The specs of the laptop where it runs smooth at 4x are significantly slower. Any suggestions? I haven’t installed 1.19 yet, I’ll be doing that as soon as I get home from work.
