slowdowns and new resolutions
i believe the slowdowns are related to the new resolutuon modes. they are not fully compatible with the old code. if you lower your resolution ingame you might experience a speedup of the game.

The lag completely dissapears when you put it to 800x600. This is the natural screen resolution. It sucks, but you get used to it.
Disappointingly there are still maximum resolutions. It just adds borders around the game area in 2560*1440.

Win8 is often the problem when it comes to games. Use Win7 if possible.

That res probably wasn't even out yet when this game was made.

Err, the game runs fine for me. Have you guys tried going into options and turning the game speed up all the way? Also if you think it's 'choppy' that's because it IS - the game was kind of choppy like that when it first came out, it's the way it was designed.

Yeah, it is an old 2D game after all. :)
I have tried playing this on Windows 8 and on Ubuntu and it is indeed a slow, choppy bore even with the speed maxed. I played the original version years ago a great deal and it did not play like this at all. Looks like Cyberlore needs to go back and tinker cuz they definitely did something wrong with the HD version.
Found this on Paradox Interactives web forums and it sometimes helps and sometimes doesn't...

For Steam users:

In the Steam Library section, right-click in Majesty HD Gold and select Properties...
In the General tab of the game's Steam Properties, click the "Set Launch Options..." button.
In the Launch Options edit box, add in: -useddblit -blitmovietobackground
Then press Ok.
