Yes it's true!

We have been able to dig into the MECH.EXE file and make adjustments to certain program timings and the result is no more mouse lag at all on the artillery screen.  As an added bonus, a few other screens that were scrolling too quickly on fast computers were adjusted and now the scrolling is much more normal.

Important Note:
This patch is to be used on stock 8.403 installations only.
The Enhanced FR mods will be updated separately, since they contain an already edited version of MECH.EXE.

Installation:
Make a backup of the MECH.EXE file located in your main SPWAW game folder.
Unzip this patch in your main game folder, over-writing the existing MECH.EXE file.
The ZIP file can then be deleted.

This patch has no other changes to the stock program.  It has no effect on scenario compatibility, and will not cause a PBEM security alarm.

Much credit for this project also goes to Gho and Major Mess.
