I remember that you can speed up the code by a significant percentage by removing the protection related code.

Instead of simply drawing in a back-buffer and swapping the screen address, the code actually draws in a temporary buffer, and then draw it on the back-buffer. When the protection triggers, the copy is reversed so you have the screen mirrored.
