I'm playing this adventure game which is partly real-time, but the emulator speed on my computer is too fast. Because of this I'm getting killed before I can type something in certain locations. Is there an Archimedes emulator where you can lower the emulator speed?

I use RPCEmu v0.8.13. I tried to use Arculator but didn't manage to get it working. I also found ARCem but this one did not respond at all on my computer although it seems more advanced than the RPCEmu emulator. I use a Windows 7 professional 64 bit computer with an Intel i7 920 processor @ 2,67GHZ, 8 core (using hyper-treading) and 12 GB ram.

Alex, the only mention of adjusting the speed of RPCEmu that I can find is to change the "Video refresh rate" under the emulator's settings, where a higher rate is supposed to slow down the emulation. If you combine this with using "RPCEmu-Interpreter" instead of "RPCEmu-Recompiler" you may be able to slow down the game enough on your computer.

In extremis, if the above proves unsatisfactory and you cannot get ArcEm to run under Windows how about running the RiscOS version of ArcEm inside RPCEmu! I would be surprised if that turned out to be too fast.

Thank you. I'll try that.
