Hey!

I notice the only run has SGB marked as the platform it was done on.
Was this a normal North American grey Super Game Boy 1?

The SGB runs Gb games too fast (61.17fps opposed to the proper 59.727...). This leads to noticeable advantage while running a game on SGB vs SGB2 or other hardware.

Since it's consistently fast, generally boards allow SGB1 times, but only after conversion (http://nudua.com/convert)

Thanks!

Yes it was a SGB1 and I adjusted the rules and provided the link to the converter and will edit my existing runs and all future runs.
I love the SGB1 despite it's faults, it's an extremely convenient way to capture my GB carts without selling my soul to ebay for a gameboy player
The SGB1 will continue to be fully supported for Hatris

Thanks for pointing all of this stuff out to me by the way, never felt the need to specify all of the things I wouldn't be using, but now everything has been updated for anybody to squash my time in the only game I can say I'm the best in the world at. 😃

Oh hey, I did not notice you had responded to me!

I used my SGB for a few months, but I eventually ordered myself an SGB2 from Japan. Back then it was only about 20 bucks (Also it looks way cooler :p). SNES is by far my favourite way to play GB games as well.

Thanks again for hearing me out on the matter! I like game boy speedrunning a lot, so it's always exciting to see people running different games like this! 😃
