On the No Cutscene Skips category would be pretty nice to have a "Game Language" subcategory, because the selected language could affect the duration of the run.

Sounds good as long as we know there's a clear difference between the languages. Have you done any testing on this matter yourself? Otherwise, sounds good, I can add all of the languages available on the Steam release.

I have a disk with Putt-Putt on it, but it's only in Italian. So I haven't experienced anything about other languages.

Alright, then for now I won't add them since not many people run this game in general. If anyone wants to do research on what language is fastest then go ahead, that'll give the mods a better reason to add the languages.

I compared Specky's No Skips WR run and HE Fan Soundtracks' walkthrough on 3 NPC interactions and found that the language does make a difference in dialogue speed. I'd assume in cutscenes they don't make a difference as it's not a part of the game's overworld and is just a script (if you will) that plays when the game makes it play. Out of the 3 NPC interactions Italian was only faster in 1, so English is most likely overall faster.
I think it would be a good idea to add a language variable, not sure about a subcategory because to me a subcategory should only be used for gameplay differences. A language just speeds/slows down the automated parts of a run so it should just be a variable to be honest.
