SubjectJust a matter of time...Assembly fun cont'd Reply to this message

So I've got a happy little program running now with all the fun stuff I wanted to do. My remaining issue? TIMING! I've got an assortment of graphics that I've animated but unfortunately they either animate too fast or too slow depending on who's system I'm running it on. A few threads down I'd gotten some help from Bart T. The waitvsync procedure even works well for me. The only problem is that it doesn't want to do the same thing on different systems. I use it to regulate my framerate on my laptop but so far that I've seen it that can be faster or slower on other machines. I searched around the net and sites make mentions of the 18.2mhz timer that is native to DOS I'm guessing? How can I access this timer? I haven't been able to find the interrupt to do this.

Right now I just need some timer that is regulated the same across Windows platforms or something reasonably close. Can anyone offer up some more help? Thanks to all for contributing. I never thought I'd get this far with it.
