Haven't been around the Bear's Pit for a while, but I stumbled (quite literally)across Flashback a week or so ago. Can somebody suggest the optimal settings for my machine?

I run off a corporate grade laptop, a Lenovo T420, with 8GB of RAM and an Intel i5 quad core processor, but the graphics chip is an Intel HD Graphics 3000. It does support 1360 X 768 mode on the LCD but the performance is nowhere near that of a dedicated graphics card like you would find in a desktop machine. I suspect that is the issue. I can have a merc shoot at a target and it will be two or three seconds after the mouse click before I hear the shot, and more time before I see if the enemy has been hit or not. The enemy turns similarly take forever to complete, especially if there are 4-6 bad guys remaining. I have managed to take the entire NE island and have captured the first mine on the main island, but this is more tedious than fun at times.

What tweaks will have the most effect on my game? Is it the screen resolution or the graphics quality that sucks the most resources. I tried downgrading the screen resolution but then I couldn't read the information panels very well. I only have the built-in LCD panel on the laptop, so no external monitor. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

It is not JA2, but I like it just the same! I miss some of the veterans like Gus, Scope, and, of course, Kick-Ass Kelly. At least we have Ivan and Fidel.
