    So long, and thanks for all the fish!
    I recently acquired an 'old' 400Mhz iMac DV in order to play some old games of mine that needed to boot into a pre-X operating system which I can't do on my new PowerBook. Unfortunately, the games are really old Bullfrog Games, and are written with an 80Mhz Quadra 800 considered to be a really fast machine. The problem is that the game runs so blindingly fast on even the slowest speed setting the simulation games run faster than I can manage. Is there anyway to slow down this simulation either directly, or through running some background app? I'm running Mac OS 9 and the game I'm currently discussing is ThemePark. Thanks for the help guys!

    try using a app in your utilities folder

    I think you can do something like that, sorry i don't know what else to say :eek:

    There was some program that underclocked your Mac. But, I haven't been able to find it, nor I think it's safe.

    I remember playing Theme Park on my Bondi Blue iMac. It wasn't too fast that I couldn't keep up. Perhaps you should find a slower machine?
