Is slow memory really needed for A500 1MB emulation? Or should fast mem be used? Is there any A500 1MB game that requires slow mem, or do all games also work with fast?

Games do not usually depend on exact speed of 68020, because they are written to also work on 030 and 040. So the non-cycle-exactness of 68020 in MiSTer is not a big problem for games. Some 3d games...
