Issue with minesweeper x timer.

Postby dvereb » Tue Oct 18, 2011 1:05 am

Hi all,

I've recently discovered the competitive minesweeper scene and downloaded minesweeper x. I wanted to show someone at work, but when playing on my work computer the timer was extremely slow. If this is a known issue, sorry for bringing it up again - I couldn't find any one else with this issue.

The timer runs about a quarter as fast as it should. My work PC is on XP SP3, 2.something Ghz dual core. 4gb of ram. I was on a limited access account, but I'm the IT guy so I can always try again on the admin account if needed.

I'll try to attach a saved recording for you to see (keep in mind I'm not very good!). My guess is that if it plays correctly on a working computer it'd be REALLY fast/awkward. I'll try it on my computer when I get home.

Sorry for any typos - I'm doing this all from my phone :)

Oh dear. Could you try it with an older version? And I presume other clones run fine?

Both older versions you link to have the same issue. I'm not sure if they are all equally slow, but they seem to be. I think I'm just not warmed up yet, today! Anyways, if you want video files, let me know and I'll try to beat my score of 7.something seconds from yesterday. It was quite amusing to watch on my home PC and see the mouse pointer go CRAZY fast!

As for other clones, I've tried these right off the downloads page:
Arbiter 0.48.5 seems to work fine.
Viennasweeper 2.2 seems to work fine.
