Still playing HoMM V - the tough Sylvan campaign. Made it to the last scenario. It's a HUGE map, you start with 3 heroes and 2 towns, but apparently MANY enemy towns and heros to contend with. Looks like a massive plate spinning exercise.

Decided to try of Master of Magic on DOSBox. REALLY, REALLY liking the gameplay - fantastic! So many choices! The maps are all random sandboxes; no SP campaign. The cheesey enemy wizard cameos are giggle inducing. The dated GUI, graphics, and MIDI music aren't too bad; they're even somewhat charming. But, man, is the mouse laggy! Saving and loading takes 20 seconds, opening and closing menus takes 3-4 seconds, turning a page in the spell book take 2 seconds, etc… etc…

If anyone knows of way to run this puppy faster, please let me know! I'd be willing to sacrifice sound if it helps…
