While I realise this request should really be posted on the CM 00/01 forums, activity there is . . . well . . . limited. A few of us prefer the older game for its features and stability, and I was hoping that those in the know (JL/Tapani) would be willing to make some small modivications to the 3.89 version of the CM 00/01 exe on my behalf. Apparenty, one or two of these changes have been successfully made in the past for the 3.81 version. All I would like is (1) fix the idle sensitivity, (2) disable the 'You may now remove the CM 00/01 CD at any time' message and (3) fix the non-fatal error message that crop up in the Turkish League. Any takers? Thanks in advance.

1) http://www.champman0102.co.uk/showthread.php?t=5295&p=178134#post178134 - I haven't looked at this yet but might do one day.

2) I might be able to do that - can you upload an exe? Also, is that the exact wording of the message?

3) This should be really easy, what's the error number and '.cpp' value?

JL, you are the man! I'll gather the information you requested and post it back here. Where should I upload the .exe to?

Here is the link to the .exe and screenshots of the messages to be removed:

The link you posted for #1 above . . . I didn't see anything there that appears to refer to idle sensitivity. Just curious what I missed here.

Remove CD message and the Turkish error removed (I think), I don't have the game installed so can't test it.

Thank you for looking at this, and for the quick turnaround to boot. I'll try and test it out this weekend.

Update: Did some testing and it looks good. The CD message is definitely gone, and no error so far with the Turkish league (although I won't be playing endless seasons of this just to find out; it apparently doesn't appear if you holiday).

There is a thread that touches on this in the CM 00/01 forum, but it died a long time ago. Is there anyone out there who has the ability to make the idle sensitivity patch (courtesy of Tapani, and by extension, JL) compatible with 00/01? Is it possible to apply the existing fix do a different set of offsets once the root is identified, or would the whole thing have to be done from scratch? I'm really wanting to play the game, but not burn up my laptops in the process.

0001 runs differently and a gigantic amount quicker than 0102. Have you tried 0001 on your laptop? I have all nations all leagues and it is lightening whereas for the same speed on 0102 I would be lucky to get 6-8 nations instead of 26.

Idle sensitivity. The offsets are different between the two games but sure JL or somebody could fix that, doesn't really bother me in 0001 & think it affects 0102 more.

Thanks for the response. I actually made an error and intended to make this post on the 01/02 side to get more exposure. I don't have an issue with the overall game speed; I simply want to give the processor a rest. From what I can by by the older threads, the interim solution is to manually cap the speed in Windows Power Management. I was hoping to fix the .exe to prevent all that fiddling around. As I recall, JL previously stated he might not be up to the task. His own patch was cannibalised from Tapani.
