The animation speed on my new computer is either too fast or too slow. I can't set it to a reasonable speed. Can a finer animation speed control be in the works? I'm using ver 12.

I've had the same problem since I've had this computer, which (somewhere around 5 years old by now) must have run several versions of PGS.

I agree, there seems to be way too much difference between consecutive "notches" in the game's animation-speed settings.

Possibly hardware-related? I've got an Intel "onboard" video controller chip rather than a card, although even a so-so card these days is a heck of a lot faster than 5 or 10 years ago.

Speed is going to be very related to both your hardware and Windows (how many applications you have running).

There should be some difference between each speed, but the next slowest speed after fast shouldn't be significantly slower than fast, it certainly isn't on my machines.

The medium animation speed is instantaneous. Meaning you don't get to see the cards dealt. One notch slower is too slow. Meaning you have to sit and wait for the cards to be dealt. The same holds true for the autoplay animation. Anything above medium is the same as medium... instantaneous.

I have a new Intel dual core machine with 2GB of memory running Windows Vista.
