Is there a way to change the game speed on the fly?

Set game speed Hotkey

Post by Tarkus666 »

I tend to play C&C more from a board game strategic point of view rather than fast RTS. As such there are times I like to either slow the game down or speed it up. I cannot seem to find anything in the settings that makes this possible. I know this was available via a speed toggle in the original game.

Any assistance would be most appreciated.

Changing the game speed ingame is currently not possible, sorry.

@abcdefg30 Do you think it would be beneficial to change the speed in-game? I don‘t think that would be bery complicated to code, or am I wrong?

See OpenRA/OpenRA#16323. It needs a place in the UI. Not sure how difficult the technical part would be. Feature wise it would be welcome, since the originals also had this.

Nice to see that at the minimum this suggestion is being taken under consideration.

Many thanks.

If you want you can create an Issue for that in github.
You can also link this post there. So we can be sure that it doesn‘t get lost.
It‘s on my list, but I‘m not quite sure when I will get around to it.
