Warcraft 2 and Pentium CPUs?

Postby Muz » Wed Jul 11, 2018 3:30 pm

I have just tried Warcraft 2 in a Pentium 3 CPU, the scroll is quite fast. Is Pentium 2 recommended for Warcraft 2?

Yea, i would recommend Pentium 2 for most Pentium games really. It is the best cpu for mid 90s games. Use a Pentium 3 for late 90s more. :) Also you're using the battle.net edition right ? It works best with windows and for rts players in general. The DOS version has older commands.

You can use a program like SetMul or go into the bios to disable CPU caches to slow it down. That way the game will run at a normal speed.
