I first played Critical Mass as a demo on the old Galaxy of Games CD. The movement was very smooth between the 'turns', the ships would perform their actions in a smooth manner.
With the new version, it seems that the action is in 'steps' and hitches constantly. It's very disorienting...why is it moving like this?

What kind of computer are you running it on? Mhz? Memory? Video resolution?
The most likely cause is your video card/memory.

Try turning down the colour depth of your screen. Windows XP seems to default to 32 bit colour but a lot of video cards aren't optimised for that level. Try 24 or 16 bit colour and the game will probably fly.

It's not my computer, I can guarantee that.
3.2E P4 and a Geforce 5900.
I'm thinking that I remember the original game wrongly and it was kinda the same way. I'll know when I get the previous versions from Sean.

Try turning down the colour depth of your screen. That's almost certainly the problem.

Tried it, no effect. I'm pretty sure it's the way it's supposed to be, I'm used to it now anyway.
On another note, how would I get custom ships uploaded to the custom page? I'd like to make some for the community.
