At this point, I am not sure because it is coded in Delphi and not a "faster" language, but there is definitely an issue with large database games like PON. Other AGEOD titles are really fast to have their turns processed, but they are much much smaller in scope (possibly only battle). In fact, if you do one of the scenarios of PON that are not campaign, it is pretty fast.
PON on a faster engine would have been formidable. We could also debug it faster. That said, I think the most important aspect is memory. Do you have enough of it? 8+MB?

I usually run with the debugging information turned on, which shows how much time is spent rendering, and on busier parts of the map the game appears to spend a significant fraction of each second (e.g. 20-25ms * 20 fps) on this rendering instead of (I assume) actually processing the turns.

To my surprise, turn 0 only took....20 minutes....lol
Tried to upload here the host log but couldn `t due to the file size.
Reading the host log, the turn started at 12:06:06 and ended up by 12:27:57 so the next step is to forget PON at all.
