Yep, the subpixel scrolling allows you to move at a much more finely grained range of speeds. So even if 1 pixel per frame is too slow, maybe 2.5 pixels per frame is just right. Without the subpixel...

Well, first off they're capacitors. They're both 220nF ceramic types, and they're just decoupling so in reality the board should work just fine without them. It's rare, but it does happen...

There can be issues with memory corruption when shapes are too large. Try loading a smaller shape for Level1 and see if that helps. If so, you can perhaps load it in chunks, or else use LoadBitmap to...

Yeah, I'd also put down RTG, and when I was using a CRT I would run applications and Workbench in an NTSC mode to eliminate the flicker. But whenever I play a game on native screenmodes, it's PAL/50.
