    Hearts speed (XP)

    I finally managed to persuade my partner to move from his Win 3.1 machine into the new century. The beeping from the motherboard finally did the trick (is that a record for use? btw? - it was bought in 1991)
    He loves the new machine, but hates the speed of the Hearts game. He claims that each player presents their card too quickly.
    Is there a way to slow it down? The old 386 used to have a turbo button for this purpose.

    Yeah, that's not a bad option, but it does not slow it down very much. I might do some investigating about a non MS version of the game

    I prefer Yahoo's suite of games to all others that I've tried. The speed of card presentation, however, depends completely upon the users.

    ETA - Yahoo games are online.....the things I sometimes forget to mention!

    He's so used to 3.1 crawl <img src=/S/snore.gif border=0 alt=snore width=32 height=15> that XP seems like greased lightning to him. <img src=/S/yawn.gif border=0 alt=yawn width=15 height=15>

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!
