Modify the operating system settings for faster game play with this quick tool, but the demo is limited to one speed setting. GameHike's dialog-sized interface is barely more than two pull-downs and a slider. Any user who can play a game will have the skill to use this helper.

On start, GameHike sets itself to the operating system and processor type. Users can quickly change either setting with the simple pull-down menus. Users only option is to set the speed change. Fastest changes the system's setting to the optimal for game play. However, the only speed change available for the demo, Fast, didn't make much of an impact for us. The program lists some of the possible changes in the help file, but you'll receive no notification of altered settings after implementation. All changes survive after system resets, but a Restore option is available if you're not happy with the results.

Our tests systems showed no noticeable change using the Fast setting, but improvements are dependent on your current settings. The demo version limits you to 28 days, but with so little to evaluate that shouldn't be a problem. While GameHike is certainly simple to use, and may help some systems, we were disappointed there wasn't a better explanation of what changes were made.
