Hey guys,

I'm on running a cab on XP and I'm wondering if there's any way of speeding up Ocean Hunter on the original 0.2a Supermodel release. I can get most games to go pretty smoothly but Ocean Hunter is slow to the point of being unplayable. Any help will be rewarded with pancakes. Posted pancakes. Thanks guys.

I see what you mean regarding 0.2, I thought a few of the games ran ok but tested a couple more and it didn't go too well. Once again thank you so much for looking into this, it's my favourite platform so I'd love to see if it can work

Ian, really cannot thank you enough for this, absolutely amazing!

Only question is I'm having problem downloading the file, chrome and Firefox keep blocking it due to it being reported as a virus. Any idea why that might be? I'm assuming it's fine!

Did you test it on xp? If so there might be hope that I might just be missing something or change the registry somewhere

Supermodel doesn't use the registry at all
Could it be your virus checker nuked it?
