My game is running SLOWLY !!!!?

I started to play UFO Defense for FREE (with DosBox) and everything worked perfectly except when the soldiers move, there is only one sound, a metallic sound... even when they walk on the grass.., and so I decided to purchase this game for 5€ and... Cool ! It's worse than the free version !? ... My game looks like it's sometimes frozen, the geoscape run slowly... i'm very disapointed . Any suggestions ?

Note: My english seems to be approximatif, that's because i'm not english...

Try changing the cycles in dosbox. Go to your "XCom UFO Defense" folder.
(default C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\XCom UFO Defense)
Open the dosbox.conf file in notepad. Look for the "cycles" entry. It probably says something like "cycles=auto limit 8000". By increasing the number of cycles, the game will run faster. If you really want to speed thing up, you can change it to "cycles=max".

You can also try editing the amount of allocated memory by editing the "memsize" entry in dosbox.conf. It probably says "memsize=32" right now, changing it to "memsize=64" should increase performance.

Hope this helps.

It works better now ! Thanks for the help :-)
But I still have the sound's problems when soldiers walks on ground... and geoscape runs too fast, even in 5sec ...
Is it possible to fix it?
