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.

have you ticked the "disable blitter waits" option of the new slave?

Yes, I ticked this box and despite this it's slow :-/
