HELP: Ultra Fast Gaame Speed Issue
06/08/2016, 02:09:00

    I recently installed MM9 v1.3 with the latest installer from GoG (2.x) on a Windows 7 machine. Originally, I was having issues when I would perform any action that would toggle between the 3D screens and the 2D screens (e.g. opening the Party Formation menu, opening Character Inventory, opening the Map, Loot a bag containing items, opening the Game Menu, etc).

    I tried a number of different solutions including:
    - Running in Windows XP SP3 compatibility mode (lithtech.exe and mm9.exe)
    - Running the game in Admin mode (lithtech.exe and mm9.exe)
    - Using Mok's version of the CSHELL.dll file

    Nothing seemed to help, and I was at a point in the game where loot was dropping so often, I had to fix the issue if it was going to be playable at all. I then saw a thread about running the game in Windowed-Mode by modifying the target of the game's shortcut to execute: "C:\Games\Might and Magic IX\lithtech.exe" +windowed 1

    To my surprise ... it worked!!! Screens that took literally ~90 seconds to come up, now took only ~1 second.

    I returned to my game (lvl 14 characters going to the Ta'Sar Academy dungeon), and as soon as I engaged in combat, I noticed that mobs attacked insanely fast (i.e. as soon as I aggro a mob, I do not even see them run at me, they just blink and are in front of me and attack multiple times a second). I tried enabling "Turn-Based Combat" (Enter), but even then, one click of my mouse caused all of my characters to attack at the same time within .5 seconds. After the battle, I noticed that the in-game clock was progressing at a much faster pace (which I honestly do not care that much about).

    If I save and restart the game in Full Screen Mode, combat returns back to normal speeds, but I am back to ~90 second waits when looting and accessing menus.

    I've tried various combinations of comparability mode, using/not using Mok's cshell.dll, and full screen / window mode, and I'm either getting normal game-play speeds with slow menus, or ultra fast game-play speeds with responsive menus.

    Any thoughts / suggestions on what to try / how to fix? Any help is appreciated. Thanks

Fix to ultrafast issue

    Hey so I just had this issue as well, found out in the autoexec.cfg file is an option for max fps, set the value in the " " to 35, will give you smooth gameplay and set the speed to normal. Issue comes from a newer high end graphics card processing the older game as fast as possible since the default max fps is 0. Kind of like the issue with Original Ex-Comm. Let me know if that helps.

Changed FPS rate
07/13/2016, 03:04:53

    Dropped FPS rate to "30" game was still a bit too fast at 35, about 3 seconds per in game minute, most MM games run 5 secs per min for 6-8. As a note this rate can be changed to play the game in a fast mode 40-50fps a super fast mode 60+ fps, and a slower mode 25 and below. Note under 28 game will start to act more and more Claymation style (choppy) while above 40 game will start to have click and mouse location issues (Choppy camera rotation)
