old flash games - can you slow them down?

Hi,

For years, it was a tradition for me to play the flash game "All Hallow's Eve" during october. I loved this game. It was simple and fun.

When it was released, computers were a lot slower. Now, the game runs so quickly that while I like a challenge, it is not meant to be this fast.

Is there a way to slow these games down or to simulate an older processor?

The game in question is this: http://www.smashingames.com/games/allhallowseve.html


Just seeing if there is an option. Thanks!

(PS - I am running on windows)

I've been playing some older games on Windows and seen similar issues. You can look for some compatibility patches (GoG does this pretty well) or there are some tools which allow you to physically slow down a process. Not as reliable but it does work.
