Video timing?



floppy and video don't have DMA in common, what do you mean exactly ?

As for the disk speed option, checking/unchecking the fast/slow mode will immediatly change the FDC timings, which means sectors will be read at a different speed and this seems to be the cause for the slow down in the demo : floppy data are not coming at the expected rate, so I guess the depacker is pausing somewhere and the 3D is not refreshed soon enough to keep a correct rate.

Hopefully, I should have a fix for this soon.
