As there’s only a couple of runners on this game thought I’d drop a thread stating I’m starting to run it.

One thing I have noticed in practice is that my loading times seem to be slower than the top runner on the leaderboard.

I’m playing the PAL version on a PS2, not sure if it’s a region difference or not.

I’ll try post a video showcasing the time difference in loading times later today.

Last but not least, any tips?

PAL games runs at 50 frames, NTSC games run at 60. You should get the NTSC version, althought with the PAL version you can easily achieve world record if you get a good rng and if your skills are decent.

That makes sense and I’ve looked into it now. Will see if I can pickup an import and run that instead.

For time being I’ll run / map out my route on the PAL version.

Sure, good luck. You can also play on emulators if you want.

i bought the original MS-DOS game still in the plastic. But its runs so bad. I want to run the game.

The DOS version isn't very good, but there are some comments in this video: that might help you out.

@Symm even with a dos emulator the game has some issues. the port for ps1 is very good, a pc version was released too, but i had no seen it yet, so it´is untested.

Yeah ps1 port is the best way to experience this game. I have read that the pc version runs slower.

@HiddenProject Im using Windows with diffrent Dosbox builds, i did rip my orginal cd for so i got the nice music and all but the dos version just seems bad.

@Iglum Try the ps1 version, the dos version has so many problems to get it run.
