Thank you for the heads up! i did as you suggested, and some of the time it works. I have now come to see that it is the graphics that are slowing it down, and i suspect the underlying code has not been optimized, as before the unit's graphics start to operate, even at the lowest graphical settings, there is a pause of about 1/2 a second.
I have 512meg of ddr and an athlon 1700 mhz with not much else running in the background.
Of course, domination should be a simple "upgrade" of MAN, but i find it to be if not unplayable, unpleasent, because of the slowness of the game. "jerkyness" of the game, as opposed to MAN which is sweet to play.
*note, my only experience of it is with the demo, which may well be a few patches behind. If that is so, i would suggest upgrading the demo to the new version, so i and others can rate the demo in fairness. Im sure it is putting some people off at present.
Must dash, ive just recieved a MAN turn on emerald
