the pipelining game in Oil Imperium runs too fast, no matter how slow I set the cpu cycles, when I have "problems" selling oil, I reduce the cycles to a minimum, but still the computer is too fast building his own pipeline. The rest of the game slows down perfectly, only the computer-based pipelining seems not to be affected. 🙁 Any ideas how to fix this?

That part is timer-controlled so it will always be the same speed
whether you run it on a fast PC (high cycles) or a slow PC (low
cycle count).
The rest of the game (almost) runs as fast as it can, thus it is
possible to slow it down by reducing the cycles.
