The result is the usual one on all platforms: slowdowns
It's a choice: maintain constant speed (so skip some frame) or mantain constant flow (so keep all frames).
Usually the simplest thing to do, from a coder perspective, is to mantain all frames.


Back to Saint Dragon. Such a patch could be not trivial.

Should be considered the rendering time code and how it interact with all the remaining game engine
(technically could be complex, code contain also a dynamic floppy loader and a convoluted 'multi'-tasks management).
I looked at it very superficially (and now I have absolutely no time available) .
