Unlikely to be answered question

… I just bought Mob Rule, an old game about being a gangster… only problem is, despite my computer’s hardware, the game slows down whenever there’s a cinematic playing… and there’s always a small cinematic playing in the corner of this game, whenever I click on a unit or building. Does anyone remember this game and remember a fix, or a patch for this problem?

Are you running WinXP SP2? MS dropped the indeo codec from Windows as of this release. I ran across this issue with Mafia, it also apparently applies to Thief 2, James Bond: Nightfire, and other games.

That’s really all I can offer w/o knowing about your config & the codecs used by the software.
