I think you're thinking of a 1:1 port while I'm thinking of a conversion, as good as possible given the hardware it's converted to. Ofcourse things would have to be cut down, but with careful...

I recall hearing of a similiar issue when the problem was with the CIA:s. You could try and swap them around and see if the problem changes, then you know you have a problematic CIA-chip.

From what I have tried I'd say the speed on a RPi3B+ is somewhere between a 68030 and 68040, but it's hard to measure. I mostly used RTG stuff so it might be slower if it has to emulate AGA or...

I half agree, because I think Battle Squadron feels better than many games that update everything at 25Hz, it fools you a little. So I'd say it's somewhere inbetween :)

Actually, IIRC it's a mix, the player always updates at 50 while enemies only update at 25. I could be wrong here since I haven't played it in a while.
