The sticking isn't related to the really fast intro sequence because that happens to me too. The sticking could be many things, including anti-virus programs or other programs running in the background.

Not really. The sticking you experience is probably due to something else on the PC. Not the game program itself.

I now have Win10 and I switched it to 16-bit mode compatible with WinXP SP2.  It's working almost fine, except the prologue sequence is still too fast and the gameplay is a little slow and choppy.  Frame rate issue maybe?

The prologue is too fast for me too. One possibility is a change in behavior of how I timed the showing of frames and how the library performed on older OS. It could be fixed. The gameplay being slow or choppy is an issue with the PC/OS, not the game itself. It's the problem with changing Operating Systems and standards. Maybe Allegro 5 or some other library would handle it better, but that'd be a pretty big rewrite of the game program to switch. And then down the line a newer OS would probably mess things up again.

It's one of those things that makes me want to make it work on a console since then the hardware is static and I don't have to worry about future incompatibility and other software issues that exist on PC.

It's a little slow and choppy now; a LITTLE.  On my previous OS, it was a lot worse; such to the point you couldn't really see anything.  I'd say it's a vast improvement, and I'd think it might be amendable on that.  Maybe I'm wrong.

I know this was quite awhile back, but I'm finally on a newer Windows OS (10). So I'll look into how the game works at some point here. Hopefully maybe have time and motivation to work on it.
