A utility to increase the speed of gameplay higher than 90. This won't work in-game though, which means that if you'd lower the gamespeed during play, in order to get it higher than 90 again you'll have to close Stronghold, run this program and start Stronghold again. I generally run at speed 150 and have had little need to turn it down (bit hectic sometimes at the start, but allows for nice gameflow when moving armies over long distances).
I haven't tested to see if the speed can be set to anything higher than 255, though I doubt it would be needed.
To use, simply copy this program to your Stronghold folder, and run it. It'll tell you the current speed and ask for a new one to set. If it doesn't work properly, any comments suggestions would be welcome.
Use this software at your own risk. Do not swallow any of the small parts and keep out of reach of children. Not suitable for pets. If this software blows up your machine and/or house, runs off with your spous or delivers any form of negative effect, live with it.
As a note - this also affects the scenario editor, so you can create natural forests quickly

Works great! No more waiting for placed trees to start spawning new ones! And knights go as fast as Shadowfax!

nice but one question does it work for crusader or stronghold or both?!

The best way to find out is to test it, is it not? (Hint below)
I can't rate since I don't have Stronghold, but good job.

Not only for growing forests really quickly, but using it to hurry units, speed up tedious invasions, and quicken goods productions...
Kinda lagged my computer down but that's ok :)
