faster than 60 hz Refresh rate + Vysnc = TTTTURBO SPEED
I was playing the game and going "Why is this running so fast? I don't remember the old Amiga game being this fast and jittery? WTF?! "

I looked at the framerate display from fraps in the corner and it said "144" which is my monitor's refresh rate. I thought "maybe it's locking the speed of the game to the refresh rate?" and so I disabled vsync and lo and behold (pretty much the only time I ever say the word "lo" is when I'm about to behold it): The game now seems to run at a much more managable pace.

I.... wow... I just.... wow.

I just had this same problem. I thought it was how the game was supposed to be but then I saw all the trees jumping up and down all hyper...I'm playing with a controller, maybe that's what messed it up?

It could be this (from another thread)

Then find and modify THIS LINE

<CameraHeroDecoupled value="1"/> <!-- Decouple hero from the camera, 1 = yes, 0 = no meaning the hero is locked to the centre of screen -->

Change the value to 0 and save the file, and copy it back into the ZIP file. Your camera will be centred and it behaves a lot like the Amiga version.

I did that and it helped a lot, with the "trees jumping up and down" thing... the game still ran too fast until I turned off v-sync though.
