You are going to have to adjust your command switches. Here are mine...I played with a slow map for many years before getting tired of it and doing a bunch of experimenting. I am on a laptop. Its lightning fast now.

Right click on the icon for WitP-AE that you use to start the game, Select Properties and paste in the Target field. There are a lot of different options but these work for me.
The Game Icon is a bit of an issue because the game installation automatically puts an icon for WITP-AE on your desktop but it does NOT start the game - it points to Autorun.exe which opens a menu (Game, Editor, Manual or Updates). Putting switches in this shortcut will do nothing. Find the game executable War in the Pacific Admiral Edition.exe in your game install directory, right click on it and choose "Create Shortcut". Drag or copy the shortcut it creates to your desktop and add the switches.
You may have to tinker with them a bit - because of hardware differences, different switches may be required. See the Tech Section for descriptions of the switches and experiment. You can't break the computer or the game doing this - if your switch change doesn't work, change it back and try something else.
