Re: Adapted games: what makes them incompatible at >16 MHz?

It could be that the ST is fundamentally a 8/16MHz system, and 50 isn't a nice multiple of that. Also, I assume that at 50MHz, you're using faster RAM too. The 680x0 family was quite flexible about RAM speed, which allowed very slow RAM even on a nominally fast master clock speed... Just because the...
