Map scroll speed issues, unplayable

Post by timc424 » Sun Nov 29, 2015 3:58 pm

I am hoping someone can help me with my map scroll speed, its so fast it jumps instantly from one side of the map to the other when i move my mouse. I have an I7 GTX 970 windows 7. It makes the game unplayable. It is the same problem i have with my original Close combat games. Thats why i spent $40, so that i could enjoy a modern supported version. Please help!

you can try changing the compatibility settings for the program, run as xp sp3 etc, as admin and see if that slows it down any, then also put the game on max settings, not that on your rig it will make any difference, as it's high end tbh, good luck and let us know how you get on

This is a not a general problem with Gateway to Caen -- the scrolling should be fine regardless of your processing power. I suspect it might be something to do with your mouse sensitivity settings. You could try adjusting these to see if they effect the issue, and you can also go into the game options and turn the scroll speed down to 'slow' to see if that helps.

There are several methods for scrolling the screen that you can try too: You can use the arrow keys, and also try clicking and holding on the map until you get the 'drag' mouse cursor, then move the mouse around with the button held down. If the arrow keys work differently than the edge scroll / drag scroll. this is something to do with the mouse.

Thought, on a whim, I would get this dear old game (Close Combat Bloody 1) on my Dell laptop to take on the road with me. Moving around with a mouse or scroll pad is unplayably slow. It loads fine, but once I get in game mode, its as if I'm directing traffic underwater. I have Windows 10 home edition, 6 GHz RAM, 1.9 GHz processor.
I do not have a gamer desktop, and really don't care to purchase one. Got a Playstation for that. Are there any laptops out there that would allow me to play
this game passably? CommanderVictimizer

The thread you posted into is for Panthers in the Fog. But it sounds like you have purchased The Bloody First? If this the case then, yes, the game is likely going to require lowering the graphics settings on a laptop without a decent video card. If you hit SHIFT+Q while in battle it will show the framerate. Disabling Ground Clutter and altering the shadow quality in the options will improve performance.

Cheers
