    You gotta trial and error until you find the right speed for you. It's different for everyone, some have to put it to 0.9, others to 0.6 because the speed-up bug depends on your CPU, for some people it's more severe than for others.

  3. i maybe find the correct settings.. its between 0.4 - 0.39 Theres still some stutter tho
  4. I don't use powertools. I change my computer's boot options instead;
    • Open command prompt as Administrator
    • Type "bcdedit /set useplatformclock true" and press enter
    • Restart your computer
    This will make the game run at the correct speed for your system clock. The game was programmed to work for a specific speed of processor, something like 3.2GHz - any variation from that results in the game running at a faster speed than intended. Though I only set useplatformclock to true when playing the game, as I have noticed it makes my computer feel a little sluggish (slight stutters, longer loading, etc) outside of the game. So set it to false when you're not playing the game.
    I have a 2.6GHz processor and the game seemed to run on 1.5x speed before doing this, but now it runs at the correct speed, which provides a much better experience. Powertools is sort of a brute-force method so while it makes the game run at the correct speed, it doesn't account for slowdown.

    Interesting, I didn't have the speedup problem with my old AMD Phenom II CPU but once I upgraded to my current i7 6700k at 4.0GHz, I need the powertools.
