Mo'Slo, and programs like it, create busywait loops in software and are
extremely poor at slowing machines down gracefully enough to run finicky
time-sensitive software (read: games).
A better solution is slowing down the clock of the machine itself, or
disabling caches, or lowering the bus speed, or all three. Check
