    That graphics card is pretty horrible. Getting a real graphics card will definitely help.

    Slowdowns in Hyrule Field are normal, I offer patched builds that have a speed hack for Hyrule Field in ZTP, you may want to give one of my latest builds a try. I also offer builds in different flavors such as SSE3, SSSE3, and SSE4.1 optimized builds for Intel processors. I also compile other patches, such as an audio fix for the Zelda Windwaker intro. :)

    A better graphics card and overclocking your processor a bit would help alleviate the slowdowns. There are also some games that run slow no matter how much tweaking is done, there is a bottleneck in the emulator's code that causes slowdowns with some games, even for those with decent top of the line hardware.
