Although i mentioned my slowdown related to brady cultures "home for child stars" i just finished playing through the game again and MAN was it horrible there. The voices in the scene never managed to keep up and skipped all the way to boscos. I noticed it doesn't really slow down much when i return for the final scene so i guess it actually has something to do with the brady encounter scene there. I might suggest seeing if you can figure anything out on the subject and perhaps releasing a patch for it, and you can also fix the thing about clicking in the top left of the screen causes minimalization in early episodes too. it's really annoying. But i'd be much happier if someone could simply tell me what causes the massive slowdown.
