Hi,

Any idea why Rick Dangerous plays like a dream, but the sequel more like maple syrup ?
Is there a way to speed it up ?, cycles seem to do nothing for me.

It seems almost the same (mine is a tat slower though but I'm in dosbox).
Maybe I'm too spoiled.

I'm gonna check if I can find a hack to speed it up a bit.
I know the man has a cape but this is ridiculous 😆

Not to bad if I say so myself 😃

MAIN.EXE , search for:
> 8e c2 26 8b 16 63 00 07 80 c2 06 ec 24 08 75 fb
replace with:
< 8e c2 26 8b 16 63 00 07 80 c2 06 b1 60 49 75 fd

And with that I engrave my 100th post, yay!

EDIT: Better patch see below.

it does make the game faster thanks!
in dosbox it needs some 7-8k cycles for the effect to become apparent

Yeah , I forgot I upped my cycles, so this one should work
properly with the default 3000 cycles.

MAIN.EXE , search for:
> 80 c2 06 ec 24 08 75 fb ec 24 08 74 fb 58 48 75
replace with:
< 80 c2 06 51 b9 00 20 49 75 fd 59 90 90 58 48 75

Yay! 😁
