I played through the 1st stage but couldn't find the problem.
Could you point out where / when do you get the flicker?

I can confirm this on my MameUI 234. The bug happens randomly, most of time when you hit enemies.

It is caused by: m_screen->set_video_attributes(VIDEO_UPDATE_AFTER_VBLANK);
This was added to work around https://mametesters.org/view.php?id=1852

note, there are also issues with the 8751 hookup however, where other workarounds are being used to stop the CPUs fighting which was causing some of the games to randomly reset. might be the 8751 has bus priority and can pause the 68k entirely.
