Default Scroll Speed problem

When playing old games (Ex: Beatdown) in Windows 7, scroll speed is very fast ,i.e,
when I move towards the edges, it scrolls to the end of the map very fast.
Is there any program to reduce scroll speed for old games.


Beatdown was working good in windows 98(scroll speed was not fast).

If the mouse moves too fast all the time, and you're using DOSBox (so for DOS games only), you can change the "sensitivity" parameter.

If the mouse speed is OK on the inside but on the edges map scrolling is too fast, this is more difficult, but again if you're using DOSBox you can try decreasing cycles, or maybe even trying a different cputype.

Please refer to the tutorials for clarifications on this...
If it's a Windows game on Windows, there's little you can do.

It's DirectX->Windows95 issue, Japo, I seen this game already. Game is fine, but when you are pointing mouse on the edge, scroll speed zips you on the other edge of the map.

progamer321 I meant to check this game, but I have no free time for this now, sorry. I'll check it later.

Thanks for replying.
This is a Windows game designed for Windows 95/98.It
works on windows 7 64 bit but with this problem.

Waiting for the solution.

Windows 95 can be ran in DOSBox, IIRC. Alternatively try using MS Virtual PC.

But there is no option to enable shared folder.
So, the whole file should be downloaded inside windows 98.

In VPC you can just copy files between the host and the guest by drag'n dropping, as long as the optional integration features are installed.
