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) .
The dynamic loader is easy to circumvent, i've got Saint Dragon running completely from memory with no access to the floppy once loaded.
