1. can i run on the old pirated version (no music+cutscenes)?
2. do i have to retime my run myself or will the mods do it for me?
3. is there a discord?

Hey! 🙂

1. I don’t think we’ve directly discussed that before. The game is like 5€ on Steam, so I never thought the pirated version would see any popularity.

If the games are identical I guess there is no real advantage as cutscene skipping and level loading wouldn’t count as game time anyway. On the other hand it would be a big no-no if say someone got the game on Steam or physically and then manually deleted the music and cutscene files.

It’s a grey area, but imo we should only allow accurate copies - especially when there’s a version available for cheap. How does similar speedgames tackle this issue? Are there any sort of speedrun.com precedent?

2. If your run has a timer (with at least two decimals) on screen and is on the PC version it’s not too big a hassle to retime, so for my part it’s okay to leave it to the mod.

Initially it was meant that runners should retime themselves, but lately I’ve just done it for the runs that I’ve verified. In the end mods have to verify the runner’s retiming anyway, so it’s just double the work for no reason.

3. No discord as of yet. The game is not super active atm, but I wouldn’t mind setting up a community server 🙂

I see you run/mod Tarzan too. I don’t know if such a thing already exists, but what would make most sense to me is gathering all Disney Games from this era in one common Discord server.

yeah i also thought about a disney server but im probably not fit for the task
for tarzan we allow the pirated version so that's where i came from although we aren't nearly as pedantic about loading times since the leaderboards are organised in a completely different way thanks to in game speed also varying between platforms
i also have a copy with the music and cutscenes though, guess ill use that one instead then
and thanks for the answer!
