I have installed starcraft broodwar on two windows machines connected through a Netgear router. One machine is Win XP p3 766 w/ 256 mb of ram. the other is a pentium 200 mhrz w/ 32 mb of ram. Sys requirements for the game are p90 16 mb ram 80 mb hdd space. i installed ipx on both. They connect fine but game play is REALY Slow. Any ideas???
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.

I always had the best luck running it as a UDP connection for LAN games.
Also, that second system's processor is below the minimum recommended for XP (233 min/300+ recommended) and it only has half the recommended minimum RAM (64 min/128+ recommended) so it's having to juggle running the OS and the game, not to mention the network traffic coming in from the second machine.
If you can't improve/replace that second rig, you might have to drop to Win95 or Win98 to give the processor some "breathing room."
