Normally I would question no emulator, but I have no intention of digging into the J version so I'm fine with the decision. Figured we'd see this category pop up eventually, keeping it as misc seems fair.

Thank you. I honestly didn't have access to a PC at the time of our original discussion on the matter, and I do only own the Famicom version. I'll submit my mediocre run then.

I appreciate it, sorry again if I sounded defensive or anything at the time.

Weren't you also looking to play a Famicom copy of this game, Rot? Maybe we could get a third run up there.

Well it seems like emulator play is banned for the JP version, which I also don't understand. Tons of games have separate categories for regions but this is the first I've seen where one arbitrarily bans emulator usage.

But if the differences in time between regions are vast enough to justifying banning it from the main leaderboard, then is it really redundant? That seems inconsistent.

I did read your OP in the previous thread, but there are inconsistencies there as well. Like acknowledging the time differences in the FDS version, and the PAL version (which, I'd assume are more significant than the difference in the Famicom version), yet allowing them anyway, but outright banning the Famicom version.

Or allowing a Famicom run to remain because its time was non-competitive, to which I'd understand if there was a rule like "all times below XX:XX must be performed on NES" in place, rather than banning it.
