Links 2003 In Slow Motion

While playing Links 2003 some people with certain ATI graphics cards have experienced problems with the game acting as if it's in slow motion. Graphics cards known to exhibit this problem include older ATI Radeons.

The solution is to add your video card to the Links videocard.txt file. Here's how:

1. Determine the Device ID for your video adapter in the Dxdiag.txt file.

  • Click on Start
  • Click on Run
  • Type DXDIAG.EXE and click Ok
  • When DirectX Diagnosis comes up click on Save All Information. That will save a file called dxdiag.txt to your desktop
  • Exit the DirectX Diagnostic Tool
  • On your desktop, open the dxdiag.txt file that you just saved
  • Under the 'Display Devices' section look for the Device ID value for your video card. For example, 0x5656. Write down this value.

2. Add the Device ID for your video card to the videocard.txt file.

  • Open My Computer
  • Browse to your Links 2003 folder
    • Probably C:Program FilesMicrosoft GamesLinks 2003 or c:Program Files2k GamesLinks 2003
  • Open the videocard.txt file.
  • Locate the following line in the videocard.txt file
    • Vendor = 0x1002 "ATI".
  • Move down to the end of the ATI section. The last entry is:

0x5656 = "Mach 64"

  • Create an entry for your video card at the end of the ATI section as follows but replace the information below with the Device ID and Name of your video card. You can find both in the dxdiag.txt file.

0x5654 = "Mach 64"

  • Save the videocard.txt file
  • You're done!
