Question Speed up Amiga realtime clock - how?

Hello everyone,

I am looking for a way to make a game run faster than normal in WinUAE. My PC hardware is fast enough. Simply playing with the CPU options in WinUAE will not do the job, because the game apparently synchronizes its speed with the Realtime clock, so it always runs the same no matter what processor etc. I select.

I figure what I need is a way to make the emulated Amiga realtime clock faster than normal. Can this be done in WinUAE?

The FPS slider doesn't work like that, well at least it won't help here

Might be a tad too fast

Look at this thread DeathAndPain : http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?t=39919
It seems that there is no way to speed up those games in a 'controlled' way.

warp mode is excellent and did the job! Thank you!

No, it is not. For my purpose it is excellent: Speeding up Carrier Command, where you spend a lot of time waiting for your carrier to move to the next interesting location.

Another game where I can imagine this to be useful is Serf City.

Ah, I see Yes for wait times the warp mode is great. I thought you wanted to speed up a game just a bit. Good to hear it's sorted.
