Flashback: On Amiga (and SNES and MD), when you change screens, you have a black screen for 1-2 seconds.

Never really bothered me, but I just noticed that on DOS, there is almost no delay. Check at 1:14 onwards:

Now, I don't remember how things work on real hardware (either Amiga* or DOS), so perhaps the DOS version benefits from the CPU power behind Dosbox emulation.

You can get a much shorter delay between screens on emulated Amiga by fiddling with the Emulation speed : Adjustable between CPU and chipset.
Not sure if it will bear consequences in the long term when playing.

*: I found this video of someone playing it on a real A600 and he has the 1-2 seconds delay:
