As far as I can tell, it's because the WHD slave uses an emulated Kickstart 1.3 environment (which seems an odd choice, given the game runs fine on later versions of Kickstart.) The savegame feature...

Funny flickering is a feature that Frontier has always exhibited in my experience, whether playing it on a 1MB A500 or a Cyberstorm 060.

You don't worry about it, since the settings are identical, save for the NTSC/PAL jumper, which you set appropriately.

I'd guess it's referring to Agnus revisions, but I can't be certain.

I did some tests with this. PCMCIA FastRAM will actually slow down your A1200. You'll get about 65% performance since it's actually slower than the ChipRAM!

Can you double-check your ROM revisions? For Kickstart 3.1, I'm fairly certain that all 16-bit Amigas are 40.063 and 32-bit Amigas are 40.068 (Except the A4000T with 40.070). Certainly my A3000 has...

There's very little value in Kickstart 2.0 if you've got a 3.1 ROM. Given the choice, I'd definitely opt for a 1.3 instead.
