Silly red thing
In the space game there is a special power (don't know what it is but its like lock all targets to a ship) but it shrouds the whole battle map pretty much in a red glow. Just to get this clear I'm running on a pretty ancient processor (1.7Ghz) which will play normal battle really well.
However, whenever the opponent puts his special power on the cogs of my computer wind down to a standstill and the next 20 seconds takes about 10minutes before the power goes off (ok exaggerating a little).
If anyone knows where the XML is for the special powers so I can switch it off that would be good. Its like a red glow with a target which hovers over a ship.
