Summary0005164: Too slow on stock machines
DescriptionIt's been a while since I launched this game from floppy for the last time :-)
And whoooo, the game is really slow using WHDLoad on a standard 7Mhz Amiga.
Additional InformationIt's slow on my CDTV and on WinUAE too with the same CPU frequency. And even simulating a 14 or a 28Mhz frequency on 68000, I don't manage too regain full speed of the original.
It's the same using previous slave but I didn't make more tests using older slaves so I can't confirm it has always been like that from the first version.

Find attached a version that can disable inserted blitter waits (custom5/tick disable blitter waits on whdload splash screen)

can you test that?

Sadly, it's not better :-/
Just to make an idea, look at this longplay : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K2m1A3sVXyE&t=1919s
Here is the right speed ;-D

And if I can permit myself, I just launched the slave for the Amiga Format demo of the game, and there is the same problem.
