    Slowdowns as in the game speed doesn't stay at +6 in once it gets to mid game with many AI players.
    Typically in 8 player games the speed might drop to -2 or so when things get frantic if someones PC is beginning to show its age. The AI is an extra load on your CPU obviously, but the more intensive stuff is usually the simulation itself (calculating the trajectories of every projectile/bullet etc.) which scales with the number of units in game, rather than depending on the AI.

    I'm up for a game yea. I'm Frédéric Bastiat in the group, just drop me a message :)

    Yea the simulation runs on a single thread unfortunately, so the spec of your machine isn't going to have much impact on the performance.

I used to play at a lower resolution as a workaround, and I still use a CRT, so perhaps I'll do that.
    Try the new version of Advanced Strategic Icons, in the last version you can select the right size for you (Small, Medium and Large). the smallest size icons are not bigger than the original icons and all the icons look perfect.

    oh, sounds like a blast. any other good mods? We definitely need to revive some multiplayer in this. I remember having one with pak, and he stopped playing? :D

    I've introduced my housemate to Forged Alliance whilst we've been without the net. We're reconnected on the 6th or the 8th of may, I'd love to play after then. I'm in the group, hit me up (my name's Frédéric Bastiat on steam)

    Well I finally have a new PC (at roughly XBone level performance), so I can play SupCom without my PC melting. TBH I`m having more fun with SupCom2 at the moment, but once I remember how to make a good build (and get my APM above 20) I might be up for a game or two. I assume that nowadays it`s done via FAForever.
