Hi-Octane also seems to be clockspeed-sensitive. It runs choppy on my old Pentium 100, yet it runs unmanageably fast on the said laptop above. By the way, I tried to run it using VDMSound instead of DOSBOX. The game mostly doesn't run (it exists into Windows after you start a race), but it runs sometimes. And when it does, it's unmanageably fast.
By the way, Hi-Octane is the most perplexing game I've ever tried. Even in DOSBOX, it mostly quits to DOS until I start a race.
Just get a Creative 3D Blaster PCI and run it in CGL mode. The 3D card will work as a very nice bottleneck even on 1.4ghz Pentium 3's and you'll get bilinear filtering and longer draw distance 😀
