This is a bit of a late reply, but try running the game in compatibility mode and select Windows XP Service Pack 3

Does the game run fine without windowing? Have you tried setting the compatibility mode to Win XP Service Pack 3?


I had a similar problem - my 1.01 game would crash after I entered the Johnson house and skipped the cutscenes to when the car blows up. Downgraded Steam version worked fine.
What fixed my issue was that I set the compatibility mode to Win XP Service Pack 3. So you could try this


Sorry for a late reply but this past week has been pretty hectic + I got sick.

Only reason I can think of from the top of my head why my dialogues are slower is that I had to fiddle with dosbox rendering settings to show up in my OBS, IIRC. I'll fiddle around with it today.

There is no reason to change the gamespeed by typing over f10 other than I either forgot or didn't know.



Highlights they do, past broadcasts they do not. You can archive your past broadcasts, but they'll be auto deleted after a couple weeks (idk the the exact time).

Today I learned something. I always record locally too and upload them to YT, so I have only skimmed how long what stays in Twitch.


But the thing is that IIRC Twitch doesn't save the streams/highlights forever.


A good rule of thumb is that you should contact the mods if they haven't verified (or rejeceted) your run for about three weeks.

Welcome to running and to the site. May RNGeesus always smile on you πŸ™‚


Welcome to the community πŸ™‚ Come for speedruns, stay for the banter.


It saves a few, because the game doesn't have to render your hat.


Welcome. πŸ™‚

What are your plans for future runs?


Hello everyone.

I have been interested in speedrunning for a couple of years now, but I didn't personally start doing runs until this year.

I mainly plan on running older adventure games from my childhood, because feel that I am familiar enough with them. I have no idea whether I will be doing other genres or not. Time will tell.

Happy running and may RNG be always favourable to you.


Of course you can submit your run. Even if it's hours longer than the current WR, if it's the fastest YOU can run said game within the rules, there is no reason not to submit it.
That said, I am currently trying to get a sub 50 min run in Monkey Island 2 before I submit it.

Welcome to the site. Happy running πŸ™‚

Hey, welcome to the site, mate.

Watching bits of your run I got interested and will probably someday try to run Gorky17. Might take some time, because I'd like to enjoy the story first. And get the hang of things.

What other games are you thinking of running?

"Between 20 and 20" What are you, a hindsight? πŸ˜ƒ

Joking aside, welcome to the scene.


Ooh, those look nice! I don't personally run those games and am not currently needing any layouts, but I bookmarked your Behance profile and this thread if I ever need one.


When I watch a speedrun, be it a practice or a real thing, I watch it because of the runner, not so much because of the game being played.
