Just wanted to share an awesome Email I got.. Ben11: "I f---ing love CPGN! I have it on my laptop with 4 controllers! I bring it with me to my friend's house almost every weekend BUT I'm having trouble playing it lately. It lags now and my laptop says it doesn't support lower resolutions than what I already have it set to! Is there anything you can do?" ..my reply: "Wow, I used to do the same thing with my GameCube back in the day, it's the best gaming there is! Read below for the fix. We tested it on a laptop that couldn't run the game at all before and now it does, perfectly, at 60fps. Let me know how it plays after this update! :D" ..shotguns coming.
