Apple IIGS playing my games way too fast.

I recently bought an Apple IIGS, because I heard it was a 100% backwards compatable to Apple IIe software. Well, so far it is, except for a game called Karataka, although it is a cracked copy, and I have heard that cracked games sometimes don't play on a IIGS. Now the games that do play, all play too fast. Games like Mario Bros, Spy Hunter, The Bilestoad, and even an orginal non cracked game called Alpha Build. Is there something I have to do to the IIGS to slow it down to play these games in there original speed? BTW, this model is a ROM01, and doesn't have any expansion boards in it.

Hi,

Press CTRL-Open Apple-ESC to get into Desk Accessories.

Then select "Control Panel" >> "System Speed" >> and finally "Normal" for speed setting.

You'll be back at Kareteka kicking ninja-butt in no time! Smile

Later,
Craig

WOW!!! I had no idea that the IIGS had so many options!!! Apparently it is Y2K complaint, and the last owner set the date and time. I didn't get an instruction booklet with my IIGS. I only bought just the case itself off of eBay, because I already had the monitor, mouse, and keyboard. Woz really did do a good job on the IIGS. I might just put up my IIe, except to play cracked games that won’t play on the IIGS. Anyways, it works and now Mario runs across the screen at the correct speed. Thanks for all the help.
