Extremely offensive? I get that the context is that people used it in a derogatory way, but it is still literally the first three letters of the word Japanese. Like come on...

There is one factor people aren't mentioning. It is very subjective, but for most games it is possible to make that judgement. If the person made an effort to actually speedrun then it is acceptable even if it is slow, but if they didn't then I have no guilt in rejecting it.

Might as well remove the ranking numbers cause it isn't verified that there aren't runs that would fit in-between two spots somewhere on the internet or a random hard drive or VHS tape. Come on....

Well nobody here is going to just link it to you, but there are easy ways to figure it out. Research the game pages and their guides. Google and talk to the communities to see what the appropriate versions are for speedrunning and potentially how to get ahold of them.

Are you ...sure you're from Florida? Anyway I think all the RE games were released for PC, pretty convenient.

Depends a lot on how the game was made, for most modern games it shouldn't matter. For some it can cause anomalies with physics, collision detection, or other systems while not affecting the actual speed of the game. But for older games where speed is directly tied to framerate it would be a consideration. For example in my main game Castlevania: Symphony of the Night it turned out that even with a relatively modern release on the Xbox 360 with a progressive hdmi signal old broadcasting standards caused slight differences in game performance. North American Xboxes still output hdmi 60 at a refresh rate of 59.94Hz, while the European ones output 60Hz. The port of the game didn't really take this into account so this does result in a very minor advantage to EU systems. (about a second difference per 20 minutes)

You don't actually need to have the spell scrolls from the shop in order to cast them. The game is pretty strict when it comes to inputs, if it says it wants →↘↓↙← then you have to hit every direction including diagonals. My tip would be to slow down and do the input slowly and deliberately, because you don't need to do them very quickly.

You should probably use BizHawk or Higan instead of Snes9x since it is known to be inaccurate and many communities ban it.

Why are you asking here? Seems like Rom and Hetfield are now mods for the game, which seems suitable since they are experienced runners of it.

Games and their leaderboards are handled by the communities, not by the site admins. You completely dismissing all the mods and the entire community outright is a terrible thing to do if you want to be a part of it. Also just glancing though the board many of the runs don't show the options menu.

People can read, but you need to be more coherent in what you're talking about.

Looks to me like Misc is checked for both variables. Remove it and they should appear.

Even when I turn on sound compression I can't hear what you're talking about and I'm usually very picky about production issues.
