just a quick question for everyone that played this game on period hardware in recent times, how was the performance? on my p3 1100/512mb pc100/ti4200/sblive!/98se setup i find that on for example with 5 difficult AIs game the early- and midgame plays just fine but in the endgame it starts to stutter a lot and interestingly sounds cut out even when there's nothing else happening on screen. checked system monitor and it's not paging when doing that so i believe it's indeed overloading the CPU which is curious as the machine is quite a bit faster than what was common around the game's release.
don't really recall having performance issues with this game back in the day but then again it's been 20 years. or since this is a patched TC add-on, maybe some update worsened performance along the way by improving pathfinding or something?
